    I Don't Hate It As Much As...

    I don't hate it as much as I think it is bad for the country.  Importing all that cheap Chinese junk instead of selling American made products (which it use to make an effort to do when Sam Walton was alive) sends jobs overseas and weakens the dollar.

    WalMart always makes me feel like a zombie when I come out.  I only go there if I have tried every other option and don't have time to wait for whatever it is I need.  Otherwise, it's internet shopping for me.  The new "feel good" WalMart commercials make...
