Yet, I don't hear anyone complaining about Meijer's



Meijer's doesn't work the same way Wal-Mart does to get its
prices low... there is no comparison between the two.

And its not about the Chinese products... I love the Chinese.
Its about Walmart's business ethics. Guess you missed that part
of the discussion Bulldog.

Wal-mart is a merchant, just like K-mart, or any other store. They sell all different things, made by lots of different manufacturers. There's a difference in buying a VCR made by some cheap Korean manufacturer, and one by an upscale manufacturer. Both can be purchased at Wal-mart, it depends on how you want to spend your money. I take all the "I support the little guys" speech with a grain of salt. Why? Because who is going to spend $10 on gas to go to 10 different stores, just to get gouged on prices? I don't buy it. I think the people who cry the loudest against Wal-mart probably shop there the most often.

Lol. I guess it MUST be true because you said so! Wow. That's real good debate there.


I love the Chinese.


Then why don't you marry them? :P

Yes, because we all know it's impossible to lie over the internet. Btw, look up the definition of "prove" (you still seem to have no idea what it means.)

I think people who cry the loudest against people that complain about people that don't shop at walmart are just complaining for the sake of complaining.

Oh please, if I'm going to lie its going to be about much
more deviant things than lying about shopping at Wal-Mart.

I know. It's pathetic, isn't it? But I'm selective about what I pay attention to.



No kidding... I wish I could do that. Not knowing certain types of
people exist would make my life a lot more pleasant.

If you really want to know.... http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0446532681/102-7161671-1254508

Its a very funny book, provided you don't limit your sense of humor to staunch party-lines. ;)



Sweetie.... don't be so grouchy. Patience is a virtue everyone should have. :P

John Stewart co-starred with Adam Sandler in "Big Daddy". He's also a source of political "satire" on an American TV show. He could be considered the "brightest star" of the liberals. Isn't that sad?

Trying finding inexpensive items that are NOT made in a foreign country. If it's not China, it's Taiwan. If not Taiwan, India. Or Pakistan. Or Mexico, etc. It's certainly not unique to Wal-Mart. On the other hand, Wal-Mart is clearly inferior as a store, in my opinion, to Meijer because they sell shoddy merchandise. The price is irrelevant if you're forever driving back to the store to return defective products.


True. We should not be doing business with those countries that are dictatorships or have horrendous human rights records( Isn't it funny how I'm now arguing a libertarian stance vs. the neocons ? :P ). I'm not agianst trade per se, and if there is a good chance of democratization through trade, even with hardline states. I see it as a way to lift the rest of world up a bit. That kind of 'honest' trade is not an issue for me.

Where I do have issues are dishonest trades. China in particular has aggregious human rights abuses, and they also manipulate thier markets in order to facilitate a false economy. The Yaun dosn't float and they've resisted all attempts to get it to. If it did, does anyone think it would be cheaper to do business in China still? No! The yaun would be through the roof. Yet we allow this fallacy to continue, even though it though it is against free-market principals, and will hurt the majority here in the end.

The company I work for does extensive research into the factories that
make our product and how they treat their employees. In fact, while I
was there last week we checked on a new factory to make sure it was
ok. Mind you, no Chinese factory would be legal here in the States...
but we don't bottom feed to get cheap prices.

Though I personally wish we could make stuff in America, I know Americans won't
pay the prices needed to support each other. Thats a fact. We want to pay a little,
but get paid a lot. I'm not going to depend on them to keep my job designing products
made with high wage American workers. Nobody will buy it... its hard enough to sell
quality products now with Chinese labor thanks to places like Wal-Mart.

As for manipulating the Yuan... you are so right on about that. I think its wrong.
But China knows if they don't, American companies will go to even cheaper places
and they will lose their business... Yay Capitalism.

Sweetie... I know. I was teasing you. Hence the " :P "...


The products are designed in the US and are brought to their manufacturing facilities that they own in China, then they are shipped back to the states. It is still cheaper to do this than to manufacture here in North America.



This I know. Thats my job... the Designer.

Simply defining the fact that wal-mart invest locally as well as abroad. The name of the company is Hays, I'm sure they have a website if you would like to look. In fact, I used to drive a fork lift at that factory, that is why I recognized the label. And that company is a family owned company started right here in Wichita.
