I also don't like that colour.

Even if you wanted one like that you'd most likely have to wait about six months with the current backlog.

And BO will probably outlaw them by then along with the ammo.

In this country, when bad guys do bad things, we always punish the good guys . 

Go figure.

      No, I will not shop at Walmart,

      1. I 'd like to see a better living wage and more full time employment for their workers.

      2. I'd like to see more women and minorities get the chance to move up in the company, and not just a photo op PR Stunt.

      3. More American made products.

      4. For them to be less diverse in the products they sell, We have 2 Walmarts in Livonia and they are choking small businesses, they want to corner the market in everything, a nice fat Monopoly with political power to boot.

      5. They only offer part time to most of it's workforce, they then help their employees to get welfare and food stamps, so while they shell out $112.00 in wages, their employees get 700 to 1500 in welfare benefits, guess where their employees are going to spend those benefits, tax payers are essentially funding their workforce.

                Sun SmileyWHEN YOU GO TO WALLY WORLD DO AS I DO,  I seek help from the "MINORITY HELP", TO HELP ME WITH WHAT I NEED  Believe me they      do take note of this, and say what good service you received from them..(.If you received good help.)....This helps the workers in the long run.

                If we all stop shopping at American Companies, we eventually can put American Companies out of business

                and some Japanese, or Chinese company  will buy them out,  and then the cure becomes worst than the illness!!!! 

                one Example is Your At&T telephone Co. who now  farms out a lot of their work over seas!!! and when you call to ask questions about your bill, someone from the Philippines or other place answers, I say "I need to

                speak with someone here in America" and they transfer me back!!

                At Walmart, they  still have many made in America products such as Dresses, slacks, bed sheets, bed spreads., towels, pots and pan, Electronics,  paint and other products of very good quality...

                Made in America is somethings we should seek to purchase not only at Walmart, 

                but any and all places we go to spend our made in America Dollars.....

                You are so right.

                I always ask, when calling for computer support for my personal computer...Where are you located? It's always Mumby India.

                My employer's computer support teams are located in Nebraska, Texas and, I believe, Minnesota, so I know the knowledge and capabilities are here.

                Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

                  Yeah we have the knowledge and capabilities.....but why do you think everyone want to make their stuff overseas??? Could it be it lowers the companies overheard and helps their bottom line?? Money is the movitator in the U.S. if it don't make you money why do it?

                    I only buy groceries at WInn Dixie and Publix.  I get other goods at Dollar General.  I wound't spend one thin dime at Walmart.  That would not change no matter how much or little money I have.

                        Unfortunately it would take millions more of you for Walmart to even care.....all they care about is profit.....and they're making it hand over fist....

                          Very true, much like they don't care about the negative impact their Super Center's have on small town businesses and "Mom & Pop" grocery stores. It would not be so bad if they would actually help get the local economy back up and running after they close down a non-profiting location. It's just ethical and would look very good on the corporate exec's.

                          I prefer to get my groceries from HEB, they're also affordable, they have a good quality store brand and they don't use pink slime in their ground beef. I do shop at Wal-mart but that would definitely change if I could afford it, I'd much rather my money go to local and small businesses.

                            I don't even shop there now. Can't stand the place.

                             

                            I'd still shop at my normal stores though... Whole Foods, Rite Aid, Trader Joes, CVS and 99 Cents Only. The only thing I'd change is I'd buy more of things I rarely get.

                              I'd probably still shop there. Face it, they are everywhere. We have Supercenters here and we have Wal Mart Neighborhood Market, a grocery store they operate. They've put a lot of stores out of business, including some of the chain grocery stores. We also shop at Target.

                              I try not to spend to much money, that's how I've always been. I just hate to spend money.
