    So, as Walmart leverages the free market, acts competitively, you deride them for doing so.

    Look, you are free to spend youur Saturday mornings browsing some dusty small neighborhood store, pay $20 for a bulb that cost less that $10 at Walmart, if you want. Heck, I do that sometimes, because the local people are usually more knowledgeable and helpful.  But that is a choice, a free market choice.

    But to constantly deride Walmart as having an "exploitive business model" is to ignore a glaring fact right in front  of you:

    Walmart is more successful at delivering green energy solutions than all of Obama's green energy programs combined.

    The free market:  Try it, you'll like it.

    Slave labor now ok as long as it is for the planet. Maybe if they charged $20 for the bulb they could afford to pay their peole more. Oh, if they charged $20 would they pay more than they are worth? No, it would go to the bottom line. 

    THe problem with WalMart is not WalMart it is that people want to buy stuff cheap and don't care what conditions employees must work. Maybe they are thinking that if the stiffs that work there don't like it they can try and find a job somewhere else.

    That's a fair point.

    Will WalMart have windmills and solar panels on sale for $20 soon?

    That would seemingly beat the Obama/Solynda price of $535 million.

    No.  The "problem" is...........people can`t afford to live under the reign of terror the incompetent and the Democrat enablers have created.


    Jan 20, 2009-Median Family income = $55,871

    Aug 15,2013-Median Family income = $52,236

     

    So why do we think people shop at Wal-Mart and will continue to?  We have a disastrous economy folks.  Gas, food, milk, housing, unemployment, and now freakin healthcare.....ALL killing people`s finances.

    Wal Mart is a freakin God send.  If I can buy for $10 bucks at Wal Mart, why would I spend $20 bucks for the same thing somewhere else?  Why would anyone? 

    [/QUOTE]

    Another fair point.

    But, we should listen to the ideology that brought us Obamacare, and captiulate to the idea that government knows best.

    Wal-mart is pure evil....not.

    Think about it....they employee huge numbers of people and before Obamacare, gave many of them healthcare.

    THEY EMPLOY MANY UNEMPLOYABLE PEOPLE!!!!  Yes they do...  people who would otherwise have no job and be using MY tax money to survive.  Bless Wal-Mart for employing the unemployable.

    They provide low cost items to people...this is good considering the state of the economy.  (49 million in poverty, quite an accomplishment by Obama..all still voting for Dems in large numbers!!!!)

    Yes the wages may be low but wait for this...here it comes....this is going to be good so don't stop reading.....If people don't like the pay, they don't have to work there!!!!!  That was profound and insightful wasnt it??? 

    Wal-Mart isn't a charity they operate in the semi-free market to make money....they add value in many ways and are efficient so they flourish...imagine if Wal-Mart ran Obamacare????  I bet it would be successful..

    Walmart provides great value to people who could not otherwise afford the niceties of life.  If Walmart wasn't doing this a vast majority of our population would lose out as well as those with the low paying manuafacturing jobs would not have any job.

    They don't make what I buy there. I'm grateful to the fine people of the US for making the products I use. I'll assume they're also grateful

    The Walmarts and all the other Big Box stores are nothing new.

    We had Woolworths and Grossmans and Builders Square before we had Walmart, Home depot and Lowe's. They are just bigger versions of what we used to have, retailers with low prices because they have inexperienced employees who have limited knowledge.

    Don't let them fool you. They are not always cheaper, they don't always have what you need, and they are not the first store to sell LED bulbs at a low price. These already are and will continue to be available at higher quality retailers like Ace and True Value hardware stores. Shop for light bulbs where you actually have a chance of meeting an associate that speaks English well, understands about what makes LED better than CFL or incandescent bulbs. Stay away from Walmart, they are no better than any other retailer except at the quality of their advertising which ( like McDonalds) is what they do best.

    Wal-Mart is also leading the way is green-building practices, the majority of their new stores all over the world are LEED certified.

    Trade magazines are always touting their efficiencies and friendly building practices, I hate it when pin-head-elites trash Wal-mart.  Ignorance is a liberal's best friend!

    Right...Your fellow lefty loons who protest as "Occupy Wall Street" against evil corporations running sweatshops in Asia often wear the so-called "Guy Fawkes" masks.....

    Two ironies about the mask exist, however, and each demonstrates that even protests against human rights-abusers and profit-takers can have strings attached. For one thing, it appears the masks themselves are made in factories that may not have the best working conditions. On Nov. 5, photos of the masks being made in what appeared to be Asian sweatshops started circulating around the Internet. In addition, it turns out that Time Warner, arguably one of the massive corporations targeted by the protesters, actually owns the rights to the Guy Fawkes image (thanks to the 2006 film) and as a result receives a licensing fee when each mask is purchased.

    Re: Here is where Walmrart brings added value to the US economy.

    Liberals think government can deliver the value that Walmart does, yet it never has, and like we are finding out with Obamacare, everything the right said about Obamacare is turning out to be true:

    * It is more expensive that the free market

    * it is being run less efficiently than the post office

    * it is massively over budget and continuing to grow

    * it is having a profound negative impact on health, from which we will never recover.

    I am waiting for the typical progressive shoe to drop, the one that brings us to single payer, because, the problem with government programs is that they only work when total control and domination is exerted on an issue.

    At this point, I would prefer to get my health care through Walmart.

    The free market includes the choices people make based on moral and ethical issues as well as financial ones. That the poster finds fault is both their perpogative as well as spreading the information on which they based their opinions. And so it is fair game for others as well.

    Free market and free speach. 

    What we are lacking is the full scope of democracy in this country. From Tea Party conservatives to Occupy liberals there is a large segment of voters who recognize how our government, Rs and Ds, sell out to money. We should be uniting to restore democracy. Then we can get back to trying to persuade each other on social issues.

    A few years ago Sam's Club was thinking about opening health clinics in their store.

    Two items I bought at Wally's yesterday  were  down sized Frozen egg plant parm 32OZ to 30OZ.

    minumium wage up >prices up and size down.

    I would go to a private/Walmart/Sam's Club clinic for some routine things, like flu, etc.  Probably a better product delivered at a lower cost.  Save the more established medical system for more seriosu concerns.
