    I'd rather just keep laughing at your caricature. If I give you details you might stop being a laughable caricature and then where would I get my humor? Bless your heart.

    Walmart workers cover a huge swath of different types of people, so it's entirely possible that the people who are not fixed-income elderly, or single mothers with 4 kids, would be willing to donate a little food to help those who need it.

    I swear - what is $5 or $10 in canned goods to help someone who is hungry?? Or even just a can of peas, or a box of instant potatoes? What is that, a dollar?

    I agree, and good post superfly.

    Yeah we are sure you never eat fast food, use the local car wash, get pizza delivered or a paper, get your oil changed at a Quick lube, buy anything at a convenience store or coffee shop. Nice selective memory.

    no such thing as wage slavery.

    wages are earned on a voluntary basis..no force is applied to people to take a set wage.

    slavery is not voluntary.

    Yes. Sooner or later Walmart will have to show people that they're ready to not only be financial leaders, but leaders in doing what is right as citizens of a community and quit acting like they're standing in a soup line while the chauffeur waits at the limousine.

    And I most certainly believe that this is going to happen in the near future after this report starts circulating in the media.

    By cracky I can't control how much they pay their workers but you watch me contact my local and state representatives and give them my

    Just as a side note, I can't read your posts without them being in Sheldon's voice in my head, which is awesome. It's my favorite show.
