I usually steer clear of Wal-Mart
However, my mother's car is in the shop this weekend waiting for a part and she made me drive her there to do shopping last night. I've told her several times what I think of that place...but she wants to save some money so what can you do :shrug: and she kind of raised me and has been a good Mother. So if I'm going I throw on my Obama Sweat Shirt.

Wal-Mart is selling Obama posters and Obama books :rofl:

Gotta love Capitalism

1. I never judge people who shop at Walmart.....I can't begin
and don't even try to understand their personal financial situations.

It's none of my business as far as I'm concerned.

But I'll always recommend wearing an Obama sweatshirt inside. :thumbsup:

I went in there last week at instruction of my employer. Needed some craft supplies ( they didnt have them). I had a feeling of disgust while in there. Could not wait to leave.

3. My Dad, age 95, says
'I NEVER shop at Wal-Mart!'

He IS a very smart man; I've ALWAYS known that!

4. She can do her Christmas shopping and food shopping in one place
That was her main justification.

Seeing that I was her chauffer since she hates my car and is afraid to drive it because its too small (Beat up Mazda Protege, my Mustang went on blocks when gas hit 3.00 a gallon) it wasn't bad for me either seeing I only had to go to one place as well.

5. I absolutely understand; glad she has you to help!
I do what he asks, with few questions! I was just surprised to hear such from him! His vision and hearing are quite depleted, but he's still able to fashion opinions!

6. We shop at Walmart and have for many years. I got an Obama
button from Moveon, and wear it there a lot.
The employees are not slaves, you know, and can even have opinions just like regular US citizens.

7. I don't know, Wal-Mart's not so bad.
(As a shopping place, not necessarily as an employer.) For shopping, it seems like just another big, crowded department store to me. At least the one near where I live.
