    Business models aren't meant to be "respectable". They're meant to be profitable. This is the hyperbole I'm talking about. I'm talking economic principle and policy, and you're trying to make things "fair".

    Hell with Wal-mart - nothing in life operates with how the lowest common denominator think it "should" be. If it did, we'd all be a welfare case.
    Ironic, Walmart's model is contributing to the welfare cases.

    So is the US military. Want to shut them down, too?

    What? They's no correlation between the military and Walmart. One works for the government for protection and the other is a private business that uses government resources to allow larger profit.

    What contributes more to the welfare cases are the people who thought a D+ on the algebra final so they could go to homecoming was worth settling into a minimum wage existence later in life.

    Liberals are notorious for shirking responsibility. People who survive on their wages are products of their own design. You can shed a tear for them if you want, but I won't.

    It's also the reason why I can bring legitimate theory, principle, and terminology in the description process, and not just rely on emotional appeal and sympathetic whimpers.

    The grocery stores in my area pay their employees decent wages and benefits. It can be done. The reason those people get paid decent wages and benefits are because of the public that made sure they kept Walmart out of their communities.

    Wait, though. You complained that Walmart is contributing to welfare cases. So is the US military. The comment was not about what they do for our country. The comment was about their people being on welfare.

    Now would you be up for the military increasing the base pay for it's newly enlisted? Be forewarned, your tax dollars will have to go up to do this.

    Meh, if Walmart wants to come in, they'll come in. As far as your grocery stores, I'd bet you a nickel that your prices are far and away higher than Walmart's prices. That's how they can afford to pay their people more. I think I said this a few pages back.

    As a tax payer, I don't have a problem paying for resources for military personnel. That is not at all the same as paying for a private businesses. As an aside, I think our military deserve better.

    I think government should close down Wal-Mart. Put all those people out of a job. That'll show them bastards.

    Nope, they stay highly competitive AND pay their workers well. And, no Walmart comes across some deep opposition in some of our most conservative towns.
