    The High Price of Walmart last night.
    It starts with showing a hardware store that had been in business for a long time.
    Then shows it shutting down and the owner trying to sell his store to someone else.
    Every time Walmart moves in to an area, dwelling properties go down in value since the City knows they will be closing.
    Brave New World put this vid out.
    Walmart costs the States over 1.3 billion in food aid, and welfare.
    Yet Walmart gets subsidies to build there.
    Since so many cities are having trouble with revenue, I don't know why they won't quit paying Walmart to move in.
    I know they are powerful with Lobbyist.
    I knew a person her worked with Sam Walton and she said he was a very kind and decent man and would be ashamed of what the heirs are doing.
    NNBook's comment is spot on.
    Something has to be done or the US only export will be blood and murder and guns.

    Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?

      My dad worked with Sam Walton in 1929 at a Sterling (five-and-dime) store in eastern Arkansas. They were both stock boys and each ended up owning their own five-and-dime. My dad's store survived Wal-Mart #10 after Sam married gas money from Oklahoma.

      There's the rub, I think. Oddly, BigMoney can never have enough.

      When she began to contribute massively to the 500-student Presbyterian college I went to, she insisted it sell its historic name and adopt "University."

      Disgusting.
