Why I like Walmart...

Lots of intellectuals think Walmart is evil, in that it invades towns, eradicates small business, and pays its workers paltry sums. On the other hand, it is one of the biggest employers in the US and it provides for many people goods that they would not be able to afford elsewhere. Small businesses are neat until you are looking for odd items or cheap prices. Do I enjoy shopping at Walmart? No. But I admire what they have achieved and how, for many, they have improved their quality of life.

True Walmart story. . . So there is this commerical where the mom and dad sit and watch the son and daughter play a video game and the little girl wins. "Walmart. Family memories for less." Later on during the same film, the same commerical aired. . . only this time, the mom, the dad, and the kids were black instead of white. Oh my god(s), I laughed good at that. Then I laughed harder after the slogan played "Family memories for less," and then returned me to the documentry film about a crack whore (Cracked, not Broken). LOL! GOOD STUFF WALMART!

Oh yeah. . . and this is one reason I hate Walmart. Does that mean I'm an intellectual now?
