As far as the elderly, most are retired, or drawing social security. Walmart isn't saving their lives. As far as the ones just above the mentally retarded level, restaurants used to serve that role, they still do to some point. Those people either don't need jobs, or could find other ones for the most part. Walmart isn't anyone's savior. And no, I'm not saying you said that they were.

I didn't say Wal Mart was saving their lives. I said Wal Mart employs some people that would have a hard time finding employment elsewhere. Some would be unemployable at most other places.

I really don't think my initial statement was nonsense. Seems like you just kind of had hurt feelings.

LMAO I was ****ing with you. I had no idea this whole conversation revolved around that silly post. Now I'm sorry I even indulged you, but hey, you win.

Capitalism! Yeah!

That's capitalism, baby!

Ok.

Hey, you know. That kind of works. I can feel the personal responsibility melting away.

I shop at walmart sometimes, should I feel guilty?

I am not sure. I think you should feel guilty for supporting an evil empire but feel good for helping the less fortunate keep their employment.

Maybe they cancel one another out?

Disregarding your employability detector powers for a minute... Why do you think Walmart would choose to employ those types of people?

I don't know. Maybe they get some sort of tax credit.

If you have a point go ahead and make it yourself. It's generally quicker that way.

No. Do business that fail to meet your needs (thus driving you to go to walmart) feel guilty?

For example?

WTF do you mean "for example"? Do you want me to go do a writeup on the guy in sporting goods that can't speak proper English?
