Then just say that when you are making aggressive argumentative posts claiming that you have more information about the inner workings of Walmart, and that everyone else is misinformed.
Clearly you have an opinion, just like everyone else.
To get all shrill and claim other's ignorance about your opinion on Walmart based on your personal experience shopping there is not based in definitive facts about big box retailers and all the problems that go with it.
There are plenty of us who do live in rural and small towns that are posting here, it's not simply a urban vs. rural thing, and don't act like it is.
And why do you suppose your town offers nothing...Did it ever?
Shrill? You must be projecting. I think you have been quite aggressive in your posts, this post is an example of that aggression
My opinion is just as valuable as yours. There is quite a bit of misinformation posted about Wal-Mart. I don't just watch the movie or media exposes on Wal-Mart, I just don't read the articles and book. I go further. I check out the statistics and how they compare to other retailers. I ask why did the author write this, why did the moviemaker focus only on Wal-Mart, and not on K-Mart, Sears and Target as well. I follow the money. Who's distributing this material, and how do they stand to profit by it?
I have said repeatedly, I don't just shop at Wal-Mart. I don't agree with all of Wal-Mart's policies. If someone chooses not to shop at Wal-Mart because as a consumer they find Wal-Mart lacking, I support that choice 100%. If someone boycotts Wal-Mart because of political reasons, and the union campaign against Wal-Mart is political, then I will challenge those reasons. Because Wal-Mart is a business. It's not an arm of the government. It's not some evil super-power.
