But I can tell a smart person from a sheeple. You're definitely the latter. Wake up fool and start paying attention to what's going on around you. It's probably too late to make something out of your sorry life. But maybe our kids won't have to live in a society like the Roman Empire.

Have you ever bought bananas at Aldi? They do go from ripe one day to totally rotten the next. You wouldn't know about that because you're probably always rotten.

You guys must all be working for the big grocery stores. How much are they paying you to talk bad about Aldi's? Aldi's provide fresh products at great prices and is the best place to shop if you're not a sheep. You guys probably all think our new healthcare system is bad and the government is out to get us too. Wake up people, the government is looking out for us and we have to trust them! Have you people even graduated high school or college?

Here in the Twin Cities, the Aldi's chain has a very good reputation. I know a lot of people who love shopping there -- including people with money. All educated, polite, normal people.

They don't sell any name brand stuff. None of their meat is even USDA approved. Their stores literally stink. That about says it all.

The meat IS USDA approved. It's required by law.

I won't shop at Aldi because they hate hiring Veterans and they give reserves and National Guard problems when they have to train or go on active duty.

And, your point is? Many one time reputable businesses have become rotten because of all the freebies handed to them by the government. I'll give you a few more. State Farm Insurance, Verizon Wireless, Toshiba, Samsung and Nikon just to name a few.

I'll shop at Aldi just for things like toilet paper, but you'd have to be out of your freeking mind to buy any kind of food there. And there's hardly ever any waiting lines anymore so the word is getting around.
