Wow thats a hard question Balls. I can answer why you should have a job. If Balls had a job then he could take his wife to a real restaurant instead of Jack in the Box. If Joe had a job then he wouldn't have to buy illegal food stamps from drug addicts. If Balls had a job he could pay for his own medical HMO for his 8 kids instead of making Hawaii's taxpayers pay for him. Hows dat Balls just for starters?

Harry, why respond at all if you're just going to make it up? The only true thing you state is that I will buy food stamps, which I do, every chance I get, why not feed my kids well? Do you think the welfareite will feed her kids if I don't buy them? She doesn't give a rat's azs if her kids eat or not. All's a foodstamp seller is interested in is getting drunk and high, and you're delusional to think otherwise. You feel sorry for them, I won't. I'd shoot every one of them if it was allowed.

Walmart employs thousands upon thousands throughout the entire country whereas mom and pop stores only hire their neices and nephews. This is how the free market works if you dont offer what consumers want they'll go elsewhere.

Besides most of them are just fronts for human trafficking money laudering, etc, they'll still be around.

Not all mom and pop places hire relatives...and it seems you miss the point.....near more businesses then just walmart taking over America.....need more businesses able to hire American labor for decent wages instead of moving over seas most in particular China....need America to get rid of illegals and force companies to rehire legal American citizens at decent wages....that surely would help boost the economy.....but its not gonna happen is the sad part....

I'd like to see a "Hardware Walmart" that doesn't just hawk Chinese-made crap. There are still some people in this world that DON'T sit in an office all day and go home to an apartment to play video games all night or think soccer in a city park is the great outdoors. Some of us still use tools and build things, fix machinery, work with are hands, and I'd appreciate a store that caters to me. I shouldn't have to search the internet to find an 8"x3/4" coarse thread bolt, some real 3/8" chain that actually reaches it's advertised strength, or an American-made shovel, for that matter. We shouldn't have to settle for what we can find, which is all poorly-made junk from China.

We voted at the polls. No to WalMart due to their sub standard pay. We have Target. Nuffield said.

The problem with Walmart is there is NO quality control. They sell substandard Chinese crap and that's all they sell.

Every store sells chinee crap, not just Walmart. Nothing is made in the US anymore thanks to the liberals overregulation and overtaxation of our businesses. Our businesses are the second highest taxed in the world.
