Apparently you have no conscience, my good Sir! You don't mind supporting the epitome of evil? And that link doesn't list the "little" cheesy things Wal-Mart does, like open stores just outside of city limits to avoid taxes while still having the negative impact on everything else (mentioned in the documentary listed on the Wikipedia link), its other tax evasion schemes, or falsely putting "Made in USA" logos on items when nearly everything in the store is Made in China, or their countless NPDES violations...

The list goes on, and quite frankly, saying "Wal-Mart owns" is like saying "I like getting daily colonoscopies without sedatives!"

And you fail to note that they offer cheap products to people in places where other retailers won't even touch. They offer a cheap product to those in rural America at a cheaper price than it would normal. Have you ever been out to the country? In many cases it is the closest store to people where other stores aren't even withing 50 miles. They do a great thing, and you can keep bashing it. There are countless other businesses that do worse things than Wal-Mart, but it seems to be a victim of it's success. Because it is so large, it gets most of the attention.

I failed to note nothing. People get by just fine in those towns without Wal-Mart, or those towns wouldn't exist. It's that simple. And there are plenty of stores, such as Dollar General, that are in towns with a Wal-Mart nowhere to be seen. You really should watch that documentary listed on the Wikipedia page, as it goes through all those "benefits" that you think are "provided" to the small towns when a Wal-Mart rears its ugly head.

And Wal-Mart's size does not give them the right to break laws and commit ethics violations, which they do on a regular basis as you can clearly see. If you want to defend them then be my guest, but don't act like they are goody-goody when clearly they are not. They do those things to themselves. Their size has nothing to do with the what they've done.

Very well put. I for one work for WalMart. I am trying to go management ATM. I don't agree with all of what WalMart does, but I agree with most of it. What is so different about what Walmart does compared to Target or Meijer or any other large retailer? These comments are for the closed minded person that does not think about the big picture. I as a consumer, am going to go where the price is the cheapest, even it is the competitor.

OK, you go find everything I linked to with Wal-Mart's competitors. Oh, wait, you can't.

It's quite sad how many people are blind to Wal-Mart. It's like Stockholm Syndrome.
