I know what you're saying, but the fact is they are primarily responsible for much of the loss of manufacturing jobs in the US, therefore are at least somewhat responsible for the financial meltdown that resulted. And that isn't going to help those American families in the long run.

Fifty four WalMart stores running on wind power will be good. But all 360 Texas based WalMart's running on wind power will be better. & better than that will be WalMart proactively constructing wind turbines to power the rest of Texas. Mr. Pickens can give WalMart good advice. WalMart must step forward to show renewable energy is the way America must go.

Wal Mart is responsible? So you are saying Wal Mart gave manufacturing companies tax breaks for moving jobs over seas? No one ever looked for a bargain until Wal Mart arrived? Wal Mart created free market capitalism? Wal Mart created minimum wage jobs? Basically the only people to really blame is us? We wanted more stuff for less money we made Wal Mart a sucess by shopping there and demandint cheaper prices from others. Our auto industry failing? Whose fault is that? Wal Mart Maybe Opec? Maybe Detroit? or possible us for buying suv that get 10 miles to the gallon to go buy stuff cheap at Wal Mart. Stp blaming every problem on everyone else and take some responsibilty. Wal Mart is at least trying what have you done to help the economy?
