    I've heard and read where other people think the heirs of Sam Walton have made things worse for the company's workers and suppliers, as if he wasn't that bad.  That is not really true, extraordinary greed was there from the time Sam took control, he developed the way the company does business.  The willingness to do what ever it took, that is the difference for Wal-Mart, from taking advantage of the competition with the modern technology of the day, back when and now, to young single mothers working there and having to get food stamps and Medicaid for their children's healthcare at tax payer expense.  What ever it takes, and that includes the imagery of "Made in USA" tag back in the sixties and seventies for some items, which was a joke.  That company has been about pure unadulterated greed to the point that most other companies would not go.  

    I think if he is rolling over, it's because the people are beginning to accept that the company is what it is.
