    So your justifying exploiting the poor and vulnerable in other countries to keep your pricing down?

If you dont like google yahoo has a search engine too.
    Fair is a subjective term, you can't tease out what is fair, by simply saying, "it's not fair."

    So effing what, businesses fail all the time, for a variety of reasons.
    Why should local businesses be favored anymore than any other business?

    Walmart pays a decent wage, for the work being done.
    It's not rocket surgery, Walmart jobs just aren't that demanding in physical or mental effort.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It works for me. I am open minded about many things. Walmart being scum and the reason for the worlds economic problems is not something I am open to suggestion on.

    Crazy thought, isn't it? You'd think that everyone who read the Cost of a Twinkie essay or anything like it would be horrified and want to radically change course, huh?

    It's textbook behavior. What shoudl they do, simply let competitors eat their market share? What kind of business person are you?
    So shop on Amazon or Target, I do, wtf.
    Well they could stop funding anti-environmental, anti-fair trade and anti-union politicians to make sure they can exploit people and resources. That'd be a good start. Then they could play on a level field with their competitors rather than using their political muscle and money muscle to thwart competition.

    Right.
    Why is it exploitation?

    Is someone not being a child prostitute an improvement or a detriment?
    Do you know that emerging economies can't just jump from mass poverty, to American standards of wealth and living?

    Not the case so much in smaller towns where they become nearly the only game in town after they killed off your former job.
