VERY TRUE
I bought extremely bad manufactured and designed tool
dangerous who ever is unlucky to use it.
It is cheaper and safer to buy tools from proper hardware shop.

All medical costs payed by me
and taxpayer (medicare and centrelink in Australia)

Newspapapers useles - they got fear to be sued.
Lawyers will give advice but will not take Aldi on.

I didn't realize Australia was as corrupt as America when it came to media bias and big corporations walking all over the little guy. I had been seriously contemplating a move down under, but perhaps should rethink this. Thanks for your post.

I drove by an Aldi that was near where I live. The place was almost totally empty. I think the word is getting around.

Jewel is nice, but I wish the waiting lines weren't so long. I suppose though long lines mean popular place to shot. I will say this for Aldi, the cashiers there were very quick. But their food always made me sick, so I moved on.

Aldi has done the same. Too bad bananas don't have sell-by dates. They go from ripe to rotten overnight here. I think they also have a lot of toxic chemicals in their food. Have several meals from Aldi foods in a couple of days and it's almost a guarantee you'll feel sick.

I can't remember the last time the media has helped out any citizens.
They work for Corporate America. When I had a problem of my own, such as an injunction by a big company that wiped out my first amendment rights, the local media totally ignored me.
Doesn't matter now. Aldi can't hurt those who don't shop there. This thread is just a warning to those who do.

This thread cracks me up! One can truly get the mentality of America when reading this. Those who need to be told not to shop somewhere are truly ignorant. The cost of groceries is a direct reflection of its utility cost (the cost it takes to get to market for you dumbasses). These same fools would be bitching about going to Whole Foods paying twice as much and getting a quarter the amount of groceries. Don't shop there! Wasn't that simple? Dumbasses....

So Jizzbucket is what you're saying is we shouldn't warn people about a rotten food store that is making some people very sick? We should shrug our shoulders and act like a bunch of sheep and go with the flow? You remind me of those companies poisoning people with asbestos and then bashing those who warned others that asbestos was giving many people cancer.

All we're doing here is voicing our opinion. I guess you'd rather have somebody like Obama who tells everybody what to do BY LAW? Or how about corporations who get injunctions against those who speak out against their products. One of those companies was selling products that was maiming and kiling elderly people. No biggie. Let them find out the hard way instead?

Hey, but you do have your right to your opinion just like Blue, even if your opinion is bashing those who use the first amendment.

You two must also hate Consumer Reports and the fact that foods now must list their fat content etc. on their labels. You'd rather do it like NY State where the actually are banning certain foods because of high fat content? I think they're doing the same in California. Why don't you two move there?

You are the lowest form of sheep. As much as I disagree with Jizzbucket, he was't afraid to speak his mind. You on the other hand played along and didn't show your true colors until Jizz lashed out at everybody here.

I won't call you any names, but I think a brain transplant for you would be a good idea, because you're certainly not using the one you have. Think for a minute what it would be like if everybody thought like you.

Businesses could just rob people blind or worse. Thanks to the internet folks now have social media to lash out against rip off artists and other peoples who don't mind making people sick or worse. Are you a part of a business that is really screwing people?
Or did you just fail logic 101?

Hey Jizz and Go Blue I got some toys I want to sell you. They'll blow right up in your face. Probably just break your nose. If you hire a lawyer my company will drag it out for years and get it thrown out of court because we'll convince them it was negligence on your part. And not a soul will find out so our business will keep thriving. Thank you. I want everybody to be like you clowns. lol

Hate to be the one to say this. but you did exactly the same thing here you bashed everybody here for doing. Did they go out of business? If so it sounds like they deserved it. Now let's hope Aldi is next.

If only the sheep realized how evil the mainstream media is. The main cause of the so called mysterious SIDS that sudden death syndrome for infants has been known in many places around the world thanks to the media OUTSIDE America. It has a long name. It's fungus or mold found in many slum lord dwellings. American media of course was hush hush, because the slumlords with big pockets hushed them up. Money and political connections come first in America. Human lives even babies are a distant second....well unless they're not born yet.
