We've shopped at Walmart's since they showed up around here...probably in the late seventies. I've never been a big supporter, but they were the only place to shop for a lot of stuff for a long time. I haven't ran them down like a lot of people. I think lately, especially during the COVID, that they've really shown their ass.

Even before the COVID, around here they were "rolling back" their store hours. Two local stores went from being open 24-7 to closing from about 1 am to 5 am or so. No really big deal, but I like the secure feeling of knowing I can go to one and get a lot of stuff any time of the day. Then the nationwide thing of only being open from 6 am to 8:30 pm. Supposedly they were going to disinfect their stores. Fooking stores don't look ANY cleaner to me. I think it's another one of their f u c king scams. Plus, if anything, this made it more dangerous to shop there as many people were funneled in at the same time that would have been more spread out with longer store hours.

Then the tremendous price increase on beef. They are not the only guilty ones, but Walmart HAS to be the biggest grocer in Kansas now and I'm sure many other states...probably the whole country. As such, they drive many trends.

Add in shortages that made little sense and now guns. I was in one of the local Walmarts the other day and there was nothing. I'm sure this wasn't a case of being sold out. Once again, a moralizing corporation knows what's best for common folks. Walmart has to be one of the top gun sellers in the nation...just like grocers and other stuff, they've driven out the competition. Then when folks NEED weapons, they pull them off the shelves because somebody might shoot some thief that was threatening their life or that of their loved ones.

F u c k Walmart.

If everyone would flush a couple of XXL T-shirt's down the toilets across the country at the same time, it will get their attention

I'm flaunting their rules- - - - -walking in the "out" doors, and ignoring the "shop this direction" arrows on the floor. Fun and games!

Why can't any of these f u c k's be satisfied with becoming tremendously wealthy on the backs of average Americans and not have to start manipulating and moralizing. Just sell shixt and be done with it.

You just now done figured out that Walmart does not have your well being first in mind?

I figured that out in 1988, when I bought a pair of loppers that snapped cutting the second branch. But it was CHEAP!

Like a dumb s#it, went to buy a set of Michelin tires for the one ton, at Sam’ club. Found out that Walmart has its own spec’s on many items, including such great ideas as winter tires without the siping. That lesson was at 2 am in Calgary and 30 something below. It kinda made an impression.

I’ll still go to Walmart when it suits me (they are the only tire shop open on Sunday, for example) but I just keep in mind that they are actively trying to deceive me.

How much do you think WalMart makes directly from the Govt (in the form of welfare/EBT cards)???

I bet 10-20% of their business.

Every time a small business burns down in the ‘hood, or goes bankrupt from Covid or the inability to compete (in a small town), WalMart gets more business.

I thought everyone had relaxed on that BS. But as I was walking up to the entrance the other day another lady was walking in the exit. I guess they had their bulldog at the door counting people run her ass out of there. Made her walk all the way around the barricade and back into the entrance. The look on the womans face. She was fuming.

Have any Walmarts been looted?

We have them counting(Errr sort of) at some of the stores, but it’s just a slug there with a clicker.

It’s just for looks

He didn’t try to let anyone in as someone came out, he just let everyone in. No comms with anyone at the other door, no person at the other door.

Those people have a tendency not to bother an old geezer who walks with a cane, particularly if his untucked shirt tail has managed to get flipped up to expose his CCW.

I went to one at 0500 only to be turned away.... Went a few more miles and got 90 percent of my list. Fuggers.

If you don't like Walmart.....don't go there.....seems fairly simple to me.

Here's a Movie/documentary about China Mart.
It's down loaded to YouTube so I'm surprised that it's not been censored and banned yet. When you click on, if it's low resolution, you can kick it up to 720p.

I won't go into it now, but the movie is actually mild compared to the rest of the story. But it's well worth watching.
Keep in mind that lots of folks are being paid by the socialists to stand all day on main Street America, so we can't open the few mom and pop businesses that are left. At the same time the owners of Wally world has commi slave labor factories all over a country that's enslaved their population.. Under Chairman Mao's " experiment" they murdered over 100 million of their own people!

Enjoy
☕😐👍
And let me know what you think of it after you watch it.
