The Need For Some Balance

If you, unlike me, shop at Wal-Mart because of the low prices and you have to make each dollar go as far as it can, that's cool and understandable but please so so with the knowledge that, while necessary, it is a dance with the devil. Know that each one of your hard earned dollars is feeding a beast that is successful, in large part, because taxpayers are subsidizing there operations since most employees can't survive on Wal-Mart wages without public assistance in various forms.

Also keep in mind the following:

The six human beings who are heir to the Wal-Mmart fortune have as much wealth as the bottom 40% of all Americans combined. That’s six people on one side of the scale and approximately 125,600,000 on the other. Read the second number carefully and say it aloud. "One Hundred Twenty Five Million Six Hundred Thousand".

Never forget that each dollar you spend is a vote for the kind of world you want to live in.

So, if you have to buy stuff at Wal-Mart for whatever reason just do so with an open mind and don't let the resident evil that you can sense when you walk through the doors overwhelm you while you are there.
