Wal-Mart, Target, Giant Eagle, Shop-n-Save etc.

It's all the same stuff, and it all comes from the same places...

Re: Walmart suffers first US sales decline
When Sam walton opened WalMart he stocked the store shelves with mainly items made in the USA.

When he died his greedy children took over WalMart and tossed all stuff made in the USA off the shelves and replaced it with Made in China junk.

I wish that WalMart would lose Billions this year.


Somewhere in a thread on GLP someone listed Sam Waltons childrens Net worth and every one of them was over $2 Billion.

Yes you have you just didn't realize it..
If you bought food it probably came from Walmart logistics
If you bought stuff it probably was shipped on the same cargo ship as Walmart.

Not walking into a store doesn't mean you haven't shopped at Walmart.

Other stores rebrand what they have made all the time.

You don't see the big picture.

Let's chant: Death to Wally World, Death to Wally World...
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

Re: Walmart suffers first US sales decline
This will be spun to reflect the so called rebounding economy. The headline will read, "People no longer have to cut back anymore, they have resumed shopping at the higher end stores again. Therefore there has been a decrease in sales at Wal-Mart." GO DOW GO!!!!!!
