    Not a smear at all, reality, something you refuse to recognize. Video has been shown of the union thugs intimidating others yet still no condemnation. Says a lot about you. Quite frankly you don't have much credibility at all and apparently will be happy to retire as a union employee. It really is a shame since you think you are so smart. Smart people don't work for unions their entire life as unions hold people down, never reward innovation and creativity, provide the same raises to everyone, and do everything they can to keep people dependent. Congratulations!

    Walmart saves the average poor family thousands of dollars in a given year. you may have had thousands of dollars on the margin to blow on aesthetics, but we didn't. Wal Mart made it easier for me to feed my family, get medicines, spend time with my children...

    yeah, i'll take that over needlessly impoverishing a community in order to walk into a store that feels homey and pretty but has high prices.

    i'd rather support the local economy than the economy of china...the cheap stuff wally world sells comes with a hidden cost.
    you'd rather keep the local economy poorer?

    A fair wage to you is what the unions want you to have, not what you are capable of earning although in your case a union wage may be all you are able to achieve.

    you'd rather keep the local economy poorer?
    i'd rather spend my money and have it stay in my community, my state, and keep my neighbors employed. i'd rather not support some company that sends its profits out of my community, out of my state. i'd rather shop at local establishments that have ties to the community, shop at mom and pop stores...yeah, it is worth a few extra dollars to me to keep that money in the area.

    Profits go out of your community? No wonder you work for a union? You continue to show that you don't understand how business works. Taxes are paid on profits, people are hired on profits, dividends are paid on profits. Try running any business without profits. You think none of those benefits your community and state?

    you'd rather they be poorer? i don't know about the Walmart where your from, but in our home town it didn't exactly import workers from the next state over. Walmart is, in fact, the largest employer in the United States.

    good for you. I applaud your ability and willingness to make choices in the market. however, measured by Walmarts' success rate, it seems clear that the majority of middle and low income Americans would rather have a higher standard of living.
