Not good...

Walmart is going to be the death of our country. Unless they strive to put merchandise on the shelves that are made in America, or at least showcase those items to their customers when at all possible, we cannot use them in another market.

I realize most food items would be American and locally grown for the most part, but why make a company that does not care about keeping Americans working an even bigger force than they already are.

Please God, is there no way to stop this madness? I am a sad sad kitty!

One way to put Wal-Mart out of business would be to deport all illegal/undocumented immigrants then close the border. Surprisingly enough it would also fix most of our economic problems like the debacle in Washington thatís been going on the last 3 years.

Yeah, I agree. Every time I visit my local Walmart, I turn around and walk right back out because I feel like I died and went to Tijuana. I fully expect any day now the greeters will be greeting me in a foreign language...heh

Let me get this straight, a Wal-mart only grocery line store. I don't think it'll fly, when you shop Walmart you visit other sections. The wives can grocery shop while the husbands check out the sporting goods section. What are they thinking? Safeway and King Soopers will be fine, they offer superior produce and veggies. I enjoy shopping in a grocery store where I can find a salesclerk and knows their products. Another scheme to get rich quick, we'll see if it's profitable or not. I think folks will be disappointed when they step inside and it only offers groceries.
