Interesting... I've always hated Walmart for what they have done to local small businesses.

Roger Walmart is a wonderful example of what is wrong with this country on so many levels, where do you start?  

The Walmarts of the world, are the death of Mom and Pop businesses all over America. In Walmarts case, they came into small communities and set up shop, with the buying power nobody would compete with, selling everything under the sun, so specialty stores didn't have a chance.  Forced out of business, now the only job in many towns was working at Walmart, for minimum wages.

It didn't start there, I remember when a community was built, nearby shopping centers would sprout up. The use to have a grocery, sometimes a liquor store, a drug store, a Bakery, hareware store, and they used to have a butcher shop, maybe a deli.  The grocery stores all started forming huge chains, like Ralphs, Vons, etc.  Where kids use to get high school jobs as baggers, they all became unions, and jobs disappeared for kids. (like gas station jobs, paper routes, you name it) The chains got bigger, and they got greedy. Instead of a shopping center, all supporting each other, the grocery chains started their own meat markets, internal bakery, and even starting selling, everything all the other supporting stores sold.  Now you rarely see a shoping center like the old days.  Now they have offices, gyms, Subways, fast foods, etc. 

Mom and Pops places are almost extinct, when you have giants like this importing crap from 3rd world nations, also killing industries in the USA like the clothing, electronics, appliances, etc.  I have no idea why they are not considered monopolies, they have corparate attorneys that have that figured out, and they have armys of attorneys.  

We all shoot ourselves in the foot, buying foriegn cars, clothing, and electronics that we could care less isn't made in the USA, if we save 10 cents.  I buy all my shirts from 2 places that sound USA made, The Bass Pro Shop and Deluth trading Company, becasue they sell larger sizes.  When I look at the labels, they proudly say India, Bangeldesh, etc.  Corparate greed and profit, instead of supporting American jobs, they import from places where labor is cheap.  Sad, but Walmarts are just full of products from all over the world, they are giant, and nobody small can compete with that kind of buying power.  Not only that, they are so big, they get shipping rates nobody else can get, so that makes mail orders difficult for the small business.  

Good subject Roger, we should all care about this, but people just want things cheaper, and could care less what it has done to people.

I know Walmart is one piece of the puzzle of the infamous issues across many countries and may be in fact to tied to the whole "plan" and Cabal... I don't really want to get into it right now.

I'm just feeling what Corey Goode and Cobra have been talking about is real and really happening. Certain aspects of their "I can't tell you exactly what, but yes it's linked" theories and information is simply fact. I really hope so... I mean, a new start to the economic system and "ways" of life may be essential. Perhaps we can live by the Micheal Tellinger theory "Ubuntu". I'm friends with Micheal and helping him find piece in Africa. True Story.

May be Walmart will start selling Sand, as it's the "new" fuel for our future (so they say).

Time will time.
