Read my post more carefully next time. I said that those companies ARE monopolies, but WalMart is not. I am just pointing out an obvious double
Walamrt works their employees like slaves( just ask one), are pushing out small and medium size businesses with low prices and overstock and there are
major legal battles when they attmept to build in certain places. 2 in the last 3 years here in St Pete.
Slaves? Please be intellectually honest, noone is forced into their job. If they do not like working at WalMart they can get a job at ANY OTHER
RETAILER with the same skills.
So, having major legal hurdles before being allowed to build a store is evidence that you are a nefarious institution? So I guess builders in general
fall into the same category. Many of them are sued and sued and sued again to prevent projects.
thank you also for the definition of soveriegnty, I thought Wal mart was it's own nation. C;mon man, make a better arguement.
Your rebuttal is "I thought WalMart was its(sic) own nation." I really don't see how to explain this to you if you do not understand what a
sovereign nation is. C'mon man, how about you actually put forth an argument, instead of just reasserting the absurd.
Do you even remember whem Wal Mart proudly announced eferything eas made in America.It was, and now, as someone else pointed out, they purchase from
the far east at lower rates than to buy domestically. In a nut shell, wal mart sucks for the little guy, but at least we can all get a new filter for
our brita water purifiers at 4AM.
Like I said in an earlier post, WalMart has established a certain image. Selling items that were made in America, and being "all-American" was that
image. If you buy into that image you are a sucker, 'nuff said. However, what is wrong with selling cheap products from Asia?
