    you go. People in the elderly and disabled subsized private housing where I live are upset. A bus trip has not been scheduled to Walmart for some time.

    When I went on the trips, I bought canned foods that were cheaper than the stores I can get to. (Without using taxis or hiring someone.)

    I'm a diabetic. My last HA1c was 7.0. Yes, I carry some extra weight. Not much, enough that I am trying to lose it. Some days, though, it hurts so much the F**g oxycontin is needed to help with the pain. Don't do much of anything on those days.

    You posted a comment knowing it was mean? How nice of you. You have peeked in at "People of Walmart" on occasion.

    Four recs for a deliberately mean post, putting down poor people.

    How many people at Walmart are using food stamps? How many people are on SSDI? How many are mothers trying to get support from fathers gone AWOL?

    Many of the Walmart shoppers cannot pay for exercise clubs, nor have any way to get to them. Or afford any equipment in their home. Or cannot even walk down the street without being in danger.

    Often a relative is shopping for members of an extended family. The other members of the family may be working two jobs. Each under the limit of health insurance, etc.

    I appland your decision to go back to lurking.

    I hope that you, or anyone you know, becomes disabled, or out of work.
