Wal Mart would have no control over what happens at a store on the reservation. Why would they want to do that?

Who said anything about not liking the post and the reservation?

They run their own thing and Wal Mart would not be able to operate there like they do other places.

Its called the death of a sylva walmart employee and a $27 million lawsuit in CA. And the rumors of the mini-sam's club are false. That was a possibility only if the Cherokee store got built, but it would have more likely been converted to an outlet-type or discount grocery store, or simply closed down.

Cherokee and the businesses there are better off without WalMart. In my opinion I think WalMart is responsible for more small businesses and manufacturers being put out of business in this country.
What price must we pay to have all those cheap prices that Walmart has? Who's pocket is that comming out of. WalMart was not around during the rise of this nation but it sure has grown during the fall.

They will longer by not eating all that strange colored meat and all the perservatives. Mad Cow and Bird Flu will not invade the reservation and that is a good thing. Walmart buys whatever wherever and sell without a conscious. The bottom line is what is good for Walmart will just have to be alright with the public.
it is a shame

I know a number of wal-mart employees and according to them, it is our fine neighbors from the reservation that are most often caught shoplifting from the place.

It would be wonderful if a new store would open in cherokee so the rest of us could feel safe around the first of june and december, when the twice annual running of the morons occurs.

I can not believe the racist posts I see. People, this conversation is not the place to spread your hate.
I walked through life as a white man all my life, but was informed shortly before my Mother died not long ago that I have half indian blood. I do not know what it is like to be hated for my race however I resent the comments being made. There are good and bad in all races.
Lets stick to the topic.

If you had half Indian blood then one of your parents is full blooded or maybe even both half blooded as I am not an expert in genetics but I think maybe you could have picked up on that if by no other means than looking in the mirror. That kind of takes away from your arguement.
