Forum Post: Thank God for Walmart, without which we would be really broke...

Without wal-mart, we would be forced to buy our goods at places like strip malls where the lease rates for small businesses have to pay outrageous monthy lease rates, driving up the cost of goods, thanks to greedy real estate developers, and greedy overtaxing governments. If I had my way, id have all the people shop at wall mart, and let all the outrageous malls go out of business.

Here in Utah, there are several strip mall type retail places that have large, and i mean very large lands for parking areas, so much so that the value of the land raised the tax value so high, that most of the stores are constantly changing occupancy, or remain empty, because no one can afford to lease there. the land owner's solution is to keep building more retail buildings thruout the parking lot now in hopes to keep up with the taxation, for shame, for shame!

As long as you are happy buying goods that 8-year-olds are making pennies per hour to produce, displacing your neighbors from jobs that they used to feed their families on...

Need to get rid of the stinkin unions to get the cost of US products to come down

Well with union membership down to less than 10% of the work force, which is to say actually lower than at any time since the 1920s, which is to say lower than at any time since the Wagner Act legitimized union membership and union activity, the labor movement is already about as dead as it ever has been since the consolidation of the industrial revolution in the wake of the Civil War.
