80. We don't have a fucking Wal-Mart in this area - there is one about 3 hours away....

Although I've never shopped at one....

Once while on the road wanting & needing to buy a certain new laptop - I went to a local computer store in this town I stayed in over night. However, the store didn't have the computer I wanted, the salesperson suggested going down the road to the local Wal-Mart and that I'd even get it a lot cheaper than what he could of sold it to me for, if had one to sell....

I looked at him and said dude, I'd never shop at a fucking Wal-Mart, I don't care how much money I can save....He got this big smile on his face and said he too would never shop at a Wal-Mart....

The reason we don't have a Wal-Mart in our area is because we the voters voted them down, three different times...they haven''t tried again and it's been years since the last time they were on the ballot...but there's always some asshole republican redneck cowboy developer mentioning how they want to build a shopping area and include a Wal-Mart in it.

We'll just vote them down again!

BTW- The area I live in also just passed a ban that no outside corporations can donate or contribute money to any of our local elections or ballot measures in the county...We don't want their bullshit corporate influence in our area.
