45. There are SO many reasons not to shop at Wal-Mart.
1. Their labor practices; a friend who works in the local welfare office states that Wal-Mart workers are so poor they qualify for California's Healthy Families program; Wal-Mart does not provide health insurance.

2. They censor their customers' reading material, refusing to stock progressive books, such as "America the Book" (Jon Stewart's effort).

3. They refuse to stock the Morning After Pill, and this is a corporate-wide policy.

4. America's city's are going bankrupt catering to Wal-Mart.

5. Their OVERSEAS labor practices are unconscionable; one of their contractors locked workers inside, and compelled women to take constant pregnancy tests (they were fired immediately upon knowledge of a pregnancy).

So many reasons, so little time.
