The worse thing is that it's rival Lowes split a year or so ago and now it's about to get caught up with HD. So lame.

HD Supply is why Nardelli is now running Chrysler ... what a bad deal from the get-go (except for all the Hughes people who cashed-in big time!).

Sorry......frankly......I think everyone on this post has no clue.

Lowes has it right......but their people are just as info-stupid as Home Depot's.........

Both of them run labor wasteful operations.

Both of them are missing on income opportunities.

And there is NO 'depression' coming.

If you think there is.....then you're a financial moron.

Hard times for IDIOTS?

You bet.

But that doesn't equal a 'depression'.

Again....no substance in your remarks...just a typical 'slant' against me.

I can take it though.

Being right is never easy. But being stupid and ignorant is always expensive.

Good luck with that.

I hate to say it, but I think you'll be eating your words within the next 12 months. You must have voted for Barry O. Thanks a lot! Home Depot and Lowes will be positioned to be our spare parts for life supplier during the coming depression. Food, water and spare parts. Do us a favor and vote for anyone but Barry 2012. Wise up man!
