    and I addressed that Paul ... in fact, if you're going to single out a company, Wal-Mart is the one you'd pick ... that's a no brainer -- they're the company leading the race to the bottom, in effect "forcing" companies to take production overseas, if they want Wal-Mart's business -- where the cheap labor is, where they don't have to worry about safety issues, where the environment be damned -- I find it curious how many conservatives don't have more of a problem with this and still constantly wrap themselves in the flag ...

    and please Paul, you're one of the smartest guys on these threads when it comes to the economy, so please don't insult me with the simplistic "supply-demand" response ... you and I know that it is more complicated than that and that the free enterprise system is not as free as that suggests ... but that conversation will have to wait ... gotta head home to make dinner for my son and me ... take care ...

    EBT cardholders; lower income folks; middle incomers in more rural areas with less consumer choice; some upper middle types, albeit not many. None of the Walton family types, with Billions, I'd speculate.

    in fact, Wal-Mart creates many of its own customers by paying their workers next to nothing so that they have to shop at Wal-Mart because they can keep prices down by paying them next to nothing... cute trick, no?

    Have a good night Sisyphus ...
