    Well isn't life grand in your ethically advanced world. The rest of us will have to stomach our cheap shopping excursions and hope for the moral courage to change our habits.

    No one is forced to go to Walmart.

    So retail is pretty efficient. We're supposed to advance our careers in other areas of the economy if retail is efficient, yes? Perhaps, I don't know, higher skilled jobs?

    Spend your money at walmart for cheap stuff, yes, so you can then spend the rest in some other area of the economy that is growing. What's so satanic about that?

    Looks like more government-only-solutions meme.

    He probably purposely doesn't buy fast food, thereby assuring that some lose their jobs, and starve. Oh wait.........sounds like the people he's bitching about.

    What exactly do employees do at Walmart that requires so much high priced skill, and thus higher pay?

    Stocking?
    Cash register?
    Sweeping?
    Forklift driver?


    Hmmm, I'm sure we'll come across the duties of most of their employees soon, perhaps some other folks can list them?

    Yea I dont give my money to companies who exploit the poor for extreme profits. I'm not ashamed of that. I support business who better their communities, better the lives of people.

    No I dont buy fast food. I thought that was pretty clear from before.

    I've never seen someone work so hard at being a laughable caricature.

    Perhaps you should look in the mirror.
