The little rural town where I grew up had some dress shops, some unique gift shops, etc. I noticed that since the Wal-Mart Supercenter came to town, that the little dress shops and unique shops have all closed down. It's kind of sad in a way. But, why would you buy something at a high price, when you can get the same thing for half the price at Wal-Mart? This sounds like the movie "You've Got Mail", where the big book store came in and wiped-out the little, unique bookstore that had been there for years.

Well in the case of a bookstore, they're selling the exact same product. I'd wager some of those "little dress shops and unique shops" offered a better product than something mass produced in China and sold at Wal-Mart.

Walmarts absolutely ruin towns/communities, no doubt about it. Like many others, I've traveled through countless rural american towns and it's always the same pattern...a downtown "ghost town" with a giant Walmart on the outskirts. Crime rates will always rise when there's an influx of low wage workers of any industry in any area. Once the low wage workers appear, more fast food "get something for nothing" type chains come in and start competing with any local establishments trying to hang on and it's all a downward spiral from there. When I was very small (I'm 40) my family used to take Sunday drives to different local towns because there was something special about each one...who does that anymore? Walmarts & other "cheapo chains" rob many towns of their character, which once gone is impossible to replace. But who would cares about any of this if you can get 5 gallons of Crisco for $2, etc. Doesn't the Bible say something about how "The love of $$$ is the root of all evil?"

I actually support Satanism because only with Satanism we will be able to get rid of muslims and islam. They want to convert all world to islam and kill those who won't accept it. So you be the judge what is better...
If you want your children to be beheaded and your wife to be raped so just sit and wait untill the number of muslim citizens overwhelms the number of Christians and others.

I worked at Wal Mart one summer when I was in school, and I worked "full time", which was not really full time. What they did is schedule you for five 8 hour days, and each day they force you to take an unpaid 30 minute break, which you had to clock out for. If you missed breaks, or hit 40 or more hours, you got in big trouble.

It comes down to greed, and lack of compassion for human beings. That is the bottom line.

I dont know why people shop there honestly. The employees always look miserable, they rarely know what they are talking about, sometiems it takes next to forever to get an associate to help you and when they do they will lie just to shut you up. When you ask "when will this be in stock?" most of them will reply with a rude tone with something like "we dont know, it will come in when it comes in, we dont know whats on the truck".

Ever buy something from walmart? Of all the major purchases ive bought there i think ive had to return about 60% of them due to defects and poor durability and lifespan of the product. Most of their brands are knock offs, sweat shop quality or cheapo brand names.

If you compare prices on major purchases there really isnt much of a difference in price compared to other stores. Most big name stores offer prices within the same range as wal mart and 90% of the time are only a buck or two off from walmarts pricing. Yeah i know at times you can get cheaper goods but ive seen people go in there to buy loads of items simply because they are on sale and regardless of whether they needed the item or not. You see people buying 20 cases of pop, 800 blank dvds and all sorts of other thinkgs just because the flyer said SALE.

I don't buy that "Walmart is evil" crap. Penn and Teller are magicians, paid announcers ...corporate puppets. Their areas of expertise are misdirection and illusion. The only credibility they have is celebrity (Would you listen to Paris Hilton?). They will never have to put on that smock as long as they keep entertaining and providing these "Public Service Announcements". Rest assured, had they children, not one of them would work at Walmart.
The number on the sign is irrelevant as it could have been an oversight, a result of malicious wrath or a plant. Who cares.
Truth is that Walmart is both good and bad for communities. They give jobs to people who are not qualified for other jobs. The bad part is that if you don't drool but you are not a university graduate, say "Bye job".
People are lazy, greedy and self-interested. When you buy something, you don't boast about how much your purchase helped the community, you say "I got a great deal." Saving is great but wealth is not a good deciding factor for the division of society. Look at Conrad Black.
Consider this. Gerry graduates and apprentices at a T-shirt shop. He works for 10 years, making gains in knowledge and salary. He saves his money and starts a family.
He decides to open his own business across town and puts his life savings into making it successful. At 5 years he starts to turn a profit and teach his sons and daughters about the business. Now he is an expert in his field and his children are learning and helping to keep the business current. Gerry is now supporting his entire family with his business. The future looks bright.
In comes Walmart
. They want massive deals on the merchandise he makes. Gerry figures out that at twice his maximum capacity, he still can't make a profit. Walmart can get bins of identical t-shirts for less than half of what Gerry charges after cutting all the corners he can. Gerry's Tees goes belly up. Custom T-shirts are a page in history and Gerry's entire family (including Gerry) are now qualified to work at Walmart!
Maybe a great $10/hr job cutting boxes and taking out garbage. Be a Greeter! Most of those jobs are part - time so there are no benefits, no seniority etc. Supervisors, are afraid to lose their position because they are curiously not qualified for any position outside Walmart, so they let things slide and try to get more out of their workers for the least amount possible. Free to use bullying and other draconian tactics they cow the workforce into a dull-grey submission. Is there any wonder why they don't often give a rat's a** what you want?
The net effect of Walmart in a community is to make other businesses obsolete and make skill - sets useless. I equate it to the car repair industry. They have taken the abilities to diagnose and repair components from the mechanic and made them (in comparison) - general laborers. Cars designed like lighters. Rip and replace. They often can't tell you what is wrong without the machine telling them what it is.
The cheaper prices we are paying is at the expense of our own businesses. If you don't support small local business, those skills get shipped to some other country and Walmart sells it back to you with a great big smile. What happens when the people who owned the defunct businesses are making less than half their former salary? They can't support your business. If they are making $10/hr, how do they're kids get an education? As greeters they can't support your business either.
Property values go down as incomes drop, more shops are boarded up along with the houses of the owners and employees of said businesses. Those boarded up houses and businesses further drop the property values and finally you have a slum. There is no money in slums so out goes Walmart
and in goes the liquor store and crack-house play-set.
You are creating a blue smocked nation. So like "The Matrix".

Great post, Wal-mart is an temptation, but like sin, it has to be avoided by thinking about the end result. Will you do harm or will you not do harm?

You've convinced me that Wal-mart is shady, even basically evil.

Saving money is not worth the mark you leave on society unless you're really poor and have no real choice, and Wal-mart HAS left a lot of soiled marks on the fabric of society
.

It's really up to the customer to make the choice.

what's bad about wal mart is that instead of buying it's products from small american businesses...

it uses cheap"slave" labor from other countries to get it's products..

thats how you get those low prices.

Just to let you know the real number of the devil is 616. It makes me smile because automatically you associate the number 666 and the fact that they have wiped out the economy of small villages with "Satanic" but its bussines and sometimes its brutal!




616 ("six hundred and sixteen", or "six hundred sixteen" in American English) is believed by some to have been the original Number of the Beast in the Book of Revelation in the Christian Bible. Different early versions of the Book of Revelation gave different numbers, and 666 had been widely accepted as the original number. In 2005, however, a fragment of papyrus was revealed, containing the earliest known version of that part of the Book of Revelation discussing the Number of the Beast. It gave the number as 616, suggesting that this may have been the original. [1] This caused Peter Sagal on the USA's National Public Radio program Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! to quip that Hell must be in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as Grand Rapids' area code is 616, and prompting radio host Mancow Muller to proclaim that the final battle between good and evil would take place there. (There is a Hell, Michigan, but its area code is 734.)

If you do not like the mega corporations, you need to develop an alternative which can out compete them. Good luck with that!


WalMart is the most efficient business on the planet. Not only that, they bestow the benefits of that efficiency to you as a customer.

If anyone ever outcompetes WalMart, it will probably be WalMart, spinning off some alternative concepts, like becoming the production and distribution channel for Malls of small mom and pop shops, individually owned but suppled by WalMart.

Whining will not make the most successful store in the world go away. They are the most successful store for a reason. People shop there. More people than shop anywhere else, buying more products.

If you are shouting down with WalMart, you are missing something very important to success, the understanding of supply and demand.

Again This was not the main point of my post... The point is most people have the connection that 666= the devil which is Evil... Wal-Mart in my opinion is destroying America... and I believe this equals to being evil.. Even if it is "business" Try telling that to someone who had to file Bankruptcy for there business of 30 years. because Wal-Mart just moved in.. And are then forced to work for Wal-Mart for min wage. and no benefits.. it's always easy to say well Its war, or its Business, or thats how life is... Until it happens to you or your family.

You are wrong I love mega corporations that create a sustainable environment for the location that its conducting business in... Case in point We have Ikea here in sunrise FL which I can guarantee runs much more efficiently then Wal-mart, has no turnover, no product loss or very little compared to Wal-Mart and pays there employees much much better and they have full benefits and perks that come with the job. Shopping there is really like being at Disney land its really amazing you have high quality products, happy employees,and super super low prices... The point is WAL-MART does not bring any real jobs to the community... with wages below standard and no benefits... Who do you think ends up footing the bill when it comes to medical expenses, food stamps, etc that they cannot afford on a measly 7 dollars an hour... The answer is well... you the American taxpayer.. Next time you shop at Wal-mart and interact with an employee.. Just keep in mind you may have paid for his last nights dinner.

So, because WM has helped to locate 6,666 children (at the time the video was made) makes it the devil? Really? Helping find kids is evil?

That's low, even for some of the odd people that frequent these forums.

And a if anyone followed Mad Hatter's link to the Anti-WM post, and made their decision based solely on the points that he found from the union site, you need to do more research. Most of that stuff is made up or spun in a way that would make Pres. Bush proud.

Do more independant research for yourselves, because his linked "Facts" are almost all false.

6,666 recovered children is strange.. especially when its been there for over 1 year.. I have been waiting for them to update this number... But it hasn't.. And the main point of this post was how Wal-Mart is destroying America , not building it.... If you truly believe Mad hatters info is wrong Please post hard numbers\facts backing this up.. Please do not claim something is wrong without backing it.. So far mad hater's numbers have been verifiable from a variety of sources.. But please if you can show us otherwise we would love to see it.

1. You do realize this number is from children recovered company-wide and for the entire length of the program, not just at your store, right? When you say "its been there for over 1 year", do you mean the store?

2. Go to Wal-Mart's fact site and see what they say about all this. You seem to be taking what everyone else is saying, and the spin that goes with it, without going to see what WM has to say. Go look at their facts, which are just as verifiable. Then take the negative spin, and the positive spin, and figure out a middle ground for yourself.

Whos to say that Walmart isnt indirectly involved. Perhaps the abductors are ex walmart employees who were mad at the world because walmart never paid them much. Maybe the children were made to work in sweat shops that produced goods for walmart and somehow walmart conveniently found the kids working there. Or maybe its just kids who ran away from home because their stupid parents forced them to wear clothing from walmart and the kids at school laughed at them.
