Still shopping at Walmart buying 80% imports and "not made in America stuff”? If yes, thank yourself for putting all the small businesses out of business along with all the small mom and pop stores in the small towns that are just a hop skip and jump via car to the nearest walmart...
The Walton family of six people have more wealth than 40% of all Americans... Thank the Big Bangsters for lending them so much money to expand their monopoly to over 3,000 wal-mart stores and growing... they want all the business... they get all the financing to obtain it and who can compete with that?
