NO! i feel they slowly have robbed the country of small town values and replaced them with convenience and a could care less attitute. individual personalities are robbed from the employees by rules and corporate policies that forbid any kind of behavior that might cause the "customer" to not have a good experience. they are cheaper than small stores, which drives their need in poverty stricken areas. i shop there regularly, but, i do begrudgingly. i would rather give my money to a local entrepenuer that would provide the same service, like we used to, except, they have all been forced out of business and are now manning the registers at WAL-MART. they are slaves to a clock and employee handbook that guarantees they can only speak what the "machine" allows them to. i laugh every time i can when i check out there and tell the usaully exhausted cashier,"im feeding the machine today for ya." this store and all others like it will evolve our society further into socialism by the guise of lower prices and one stop shopping. i love the conversation you get from going to say "the pig" or "orange hill express" of "kings drugs". if we lose these places, we will lose our community values and have to start learning the "corporate consumer handbooks" released by big business.

LOL! Davy and I would make it just fine without wally world. How about you? oh, Progress? im sorry to step on your liberal little toes. Enjoy your obama care, big government, big business, union everything and whatever golden boy has filled your head with. just dont gripe when you get to pay for it all next year. or better yet, you might be one of the recievers of the "welfare" game, not a contributer. i was at a checkout line behind a guy the other day who used that great ole food stamp card to buy all his various crap while bitching about having no money. he slowly walked off and the cashier asked me if i was going to use my card and i replied,"no honey, i dont have one, i pay so others get one." both the cashier and the guy just looked at me confused.

and those with the ebt welfare cards get the best brands, frozen dinners and dinners in a box while the rest of us working class have to prepare our meals becuase those frozen box meals are too expensive. What I really love is when they then put their cigarettes and beer up there and pay for it with cash. Hmmm thought they didnt have money? I stand there fuming every time I am behind one of them. They have nose rings, nails done, dog food, cat food and other crap but whip out those WIC checks and EBT card. What a great country we live in.

good observation, but you forgot the escalade on 22 inch rims in the parking lot that they pile into and drive off. that might sound racist to whoever might drive one, but, hey i cant afford that and i dont qualify for that magical free food card. so how are you doing? another good one i have seen is a young woman that i know personally stand in line with two kids dressed nice and from a wealthy family, a husband with a good job, and all the jewelery you could fit on mr. t, swipe her ebt card and push her buggy with food and kids right to a brand new ford expedition. how can that happen? i just shake my head in disbelief and throw a 20 out to cover my bill and walk to my old plain jane truck while im just amazed how easy folks are ripping our government a new one. do they ever think that those kids will be taxed to oblivion to pay for their little scam?

CHANGE was a one word sales pitch that was very effective with uninformed voters. what CHANGE represented was not change, just a further advancement of the movement towards equality for all(socialism) its not just Obama, pelosi, and reid that are the champions of the CHANGE movement. it was effectively created under Carter. it just couldnt get off the ground in one mass swoop like it has now until the majority of people would subscibe to it. most still dont realize what is taking place. hopefully, grass-roots movements like the tea parties with be able to counter-act the efforts of ACORN and help restore an even flow to our national government. 2010 is a landmark election. we cannot afford to fall further under the control of this socialist movement. it will be the death of our individuality as a society. HENCE, WALMART FOR EVERYONE-LIKE IT OR NOT. before long you be able to leave your kids at walmart for daycare and government education at everyday low prices.

agreed, they had their hayday and fell to the wayside in the change of our country. the big diff is...they werent in the era of government bailouts. this government we have in place today will prop up just about any corporation in hopes they can spend more tax dollars and slip us closer to bankruptcy. now, do i believe it can be stopped? OF COURSE. this isnt the first time we have faced deficit spending. but, it must stop and a change in overall philosophy must take place. i think this government wants to bankrupt our dollar and force us to be delinquent when it comes to international trade. what would that ultimately do? force a socialist structure onto the country by necessity, similar to russia and china. government will be forced to tax the public through the roof and would ultimately control just about everything in our country. social classes would merge together and have one big ball of the "evens" in the eyes of our people and government. freedom and capitalism would end up being folklore told by the "old timers"

I hope they do strike. I have been looking for a job for 7 months. I will work on any holiday to feed my family. I have applied there and since I did not finish the tenth grade I guess I am not a good worker. If you do strike be willing to let me step in and pay my bills. I would be so glad to work for 8 dollars and hour it is better than what I am making now. Please call me back Walmart.
