As Wal-Mart racks up profits which go to the top as well as overseas, America continues economic decline and very possibly the onslaught of a Major Depression.

As Wal-Mart prospers, Sears suffers and is now considered a company at risk of going under...yet Sears has supported our Military through making up differences in pay, ensuring jobs, on return from service....Wal-Mart has not!

Things do come 'round ... eventually.  Though you may disagree -which is your right while we still have a Democracy which permits free speech - my prayer is that all who shop Wal-Mart have family members encounter layoffs and income reduction similar to the many Americans who have lost jobs or lower pay and no or lower benefits due to the business practices of Wal-Mart. Maybe then we can correct the abuses. 
                            
This, imo, EVIL Company has undermined America, forced companies out of business, forced jobs to China and set the pattern where other companies followed. Yes, when you shop Wal-Mart you may save some money but this is at the expense of our country, of our citizens, of companies closing ... do you really support the practices of Wal-Mart?  If not, STOP shopping there and shop REAL American companies ... or help more come into being.  What you save at Wal-Mart is pennies versus the harm done to our country, citizens, armed forces, and quite possibly, in the end, our democracy itself.
 
If you want to support the growing economic crisis, continue shopping Wal-Mart.

If you want to put more Americans out of work, continue to shop Wal-Mart.

If you want to lower living wage for many Americans, continue to shop Wal-Mart.

If you want many Americans to lose health care or have lower benefits, continue to shop Wal-Mart.

If you want our health care possibly undermined (Wal-Mart supposedly wants to get into running health care clinics), continue to shop Wal-Mart.
 
Just remember, if your family loses jobs while China gains, you may have supported it through shopping Wal-Mart.

It's time instead to support companies who support American ideals. Support American goods produced by Americans. 

It's your choice,, Is it really savings when America and Americans suffer?

Will your family be next ... shopping Wal-Mart may make it so!

Send this to others while you think priorities for our future.
