Usually, when a large organization outsources a type of work it used to do in house, most of the people who did it in-house get hired by the outsource company. A lot of the time, they don't even switch desks.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.

"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
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.
WalMart and Sam's club are going to have to streamline and have more efficient demos so that they can roll back their prices.
They've been steadily raising their prices around here. Somewhere along those lines they must have crossed a particular one. Kroger is opening new stores around here that carry all of the items that WalMart carries, and Kroger has dropped their food prices at all of their stores to never before seen new lows.
I expect WalMart to end up closing Sam's stores in the near future as an attempt to stay competitive.
It appears that China will sell to anybody.

HELPING HILLARY PICK OUT HER INAUGURAL GOWN!The jokes write themselves!
I shop at Krogers, Wal-Mart, and Sams all the time. Kroger can't touch Wal-Mart's prices. For everyday grocery shopping, I go to Wal-Mart. To buy items in bulk like paper towels, coffee, etc., I go to Sams. For unusual food items, I go to Kroger. For meat, I go to the small grocery store in the town I live in. None of the others can touch their meat prices or quality.
The ladies doing demos at Sams are usually older ladies and they are only there a couple of hours a day. Some are good and tell you about the food, others don't even say a word to you. I do like going to Sams for lunch and tasting all the goodies. Time it right, and you can have an appetizer, entree, a dessert, and a drink.
