You don't live near one of the 4000 Wal*Mart's? :strokebeard:




Fuck Walmart, I won't shop there, plus I live in the mountains  and our very little town voted against ruining the local economy with another god damn wallyworld competing against mom and pop shops. Walmart has turned so many small towns into ghost towns.

Ruining the local economy means not having the goods you want to purchase available to you? :shrug:

If Walmart creates ghost towns, where do all those fat ladies come from?

Actually they are statistically proven to hurt economies in small towns, and it was published in our local paper and is the exact reason we don't have a walmart. Not to mention their laughable ethics behind the whole shebang. Check out the movie 'Walmart the High Cost of Low Prices'

Yes, I live in a town of under 10,000 people and probably 50% are retired and the others commute very far to go to work. If a walmart enters and these Mom and Pop stores which make up my town can't compete, which they obviously can't, that means that when they go out of business the people who work there have no job and the only place in town is Wal-mart. I'm not working at walmart or going to get excited about them 'always lowering prices' because its convenient. I love how people act like Walmart is doing a great service to the American people, cheap plastic crap is available pretty much everywhere else. Our economy here locally is shit as of lately with the way the whole economy is going and it took me 3 months to get a job, if a walmart was here it would be the biggest attraction and our town voted against it because of the statistics printed in the local paper and because we chose to live in the mountains to not be near walmarts and all the bullshit that comes along with american consumer culture. We just want to chill in the mountains. 

I'de rather order my carbon on the internet and never see a supercenter in the beautiful california mountains.


Oh yeah and hanky the good plus size ladies come from casino and roller rink duh. bingo room chain smokers.

But anyway didn't want to derail this topic I was just trying to let people know there was cheap carbon on the internet if they happen to live in a town without a wally world.

There is nothing wrong with preferring that one's local commerce stays with smaller, locally-owned stores, or with preferring that a big-box store and that which comes along with it remains out of one's town for aesthetic or any other reason, but the idea that a Wal*Mart or any other large, commercially-owned store is bad for local economy is false. One opening up might change the dynamics of the local economy, such that smaller businesses unable to compete go out of business, but that doesn't mean it is negative for the local economy itself. Once again, whether or not those kinds of changes to the dynamics and nature of the local economy is preferable is an entirely different manner, but the idea that it wouldn't be good for the local economy itself is false. These stores hire people as well and pay a lot of local taxes.

I'll move this section into its own thread in the off-topic forum so as to not interrupt the on-topicness any longer. :wink:

They hire people, but Walmart strives to have as few people as possible and pay them as little as possible. The shops that Walmart puts out of business often do the opposite.

The small shops, also, take the money they make and since the owners live locally, all of the money goes back into the local economy. However with Walmart, a lot of the profit leaves the local economy and goes elsewhere to the owners.

Walmart does pay a lot of tax. However, if there was no Walmart, people still have to buy stuff and they would buy from the small shops. Combined, they pay a lot of taxes too.

damn, it's just wallmart, what's the deal with that. I hate to think of a big corporate business putting small business out of work. But in all reality, I'd buy what they have, because why not.

shit, but thousands of companies do that. I worked with construction for 7 months, that shit put people the fuck out of business.

I mean, yeah, you got lots of people with jobs. So no ones LOOSING a job. But it's another example of a corporate shit screw. You make 12.50 doing all the work, the people who own and design and sell the buildings and construction companies are billionaires.

if it were up to me, I'd fuckin tear down every business, where the owner makes more than 100 times more than the person working at the ground level.

I mean face it, if business was fair, the person working ground level would make at least 5% of what the owner made, equal parts work labor, equal parts work business and such. I mean, it sounds ridiculous.

but damn, maybe the world would be far, and no one would be too rich or poor if everyone had to share.

My town has survived on small businesses for over 75 years if all the small businesses go out of business how is that not bad for the local economy. everything else would close down and walmart would be left standing. The new dynamic would be walmart in the mountains with a bunch of poor fools.
