Numerous ways if you haven't realized walmart is a monopoly. Personally, I refuse to shop there. Have you ever seen a person loose weight eating walmart foods???? I didn't think so. They allow so much BS to be put into the foods that they sell so that people will continue to want to eat more and more and more. I am not saying that walmart is the only ones to blame for fat lazy americans and our loss of money, but like I said they didn't exactly play a small roll. For example, yesterday I pointed out to Aaron that when I was a little kid (I know not long ago, but still before walmart was SUPER popular) when I saw an over weight person I was like wow you know you didn't see those very often. Now, I go to the store and I see a skinny person and say wow. Tell me, isn't that terrible? Children that are raised these days see overweight people and think nothing of it what so ever. I used to weigh 125 pounds. I lost weight since I moved in with Aaron and started eating right. I am now down to 95 pounds, but I am still not all that thin and yet when people see me now they say oh wow you lost too much weight are you eating right? I went to see my doctor so that I could get my mother to stop asking me these questions and he told me I could stand to lose a bit more lol. I mean really people see you as if you have to be at least a little pudgy to be healthy which is wrong... Sorry I am ranting.

I just don't understand why everyone is always blasting them. They found a role in the economy and played to it. Are they too big? In my mind yes but so are a number of other businesses. Banking and telecommunications come to mind. I think Regan did the right thing by breaking up the phone companies and keeping competition in the market and I believe the same thing could be beneficial if applied to walmart. Do I shop there? Sometimes, but if I can buy it from a local shop I will.

I don't think Wal-mart is a "cause" of what has happened, there the "result".

It's way too much to explain.

It's something you have to look into to find.
