    We're forced to subsidize Walmart so you might want to find a different example.

    I see no link showing that Wal-Mart is subsidized. However if it is you're free to make sure those subsidies are stopped. I'm sure the poor who are subsidized and demand those low low prices will appreciate your efforts...

    What do you think will happen to the prices at Wal-Mart when that happens?

    Will Wal-Mart be cheaper or the local retailer that Wal-Mart most likely is driving out of business if it hasn't already?

    Because you're not clicking fast enough on the "cute puppy" or "where are they now" or "Russian bride" Ads..

    Seems like USMB types aren't viewing the "wardrobe malfunction" sites as much as normal folks do..

    If you're that damn sophisticated and appreciate the intellectual stimulation and information pumping of this site -- cough up $10 ONCE. You don't have to do it every cycle.

    It's all those Meme pics that folks are posting. They gotta be stored somewhere...

    We need a 'Cute Puppy' button added to how we can rate postings.

    I fear this would require an even more powerful server.

    Walmart benefits from billions in government subsidies: Study

    The report estimates that Walmart and the Walton family—which co-founded the company and still owns a majority share—collectively profit from nearly $7.8 billion per year in federal subsidies and tax breaks.

    I have an Idea. Make a proper app that can be used to donate. The one you already have is neither popular nor useful.

    Did I just get promoted to administrator, or even the lesser position of moderator, without being told?

    Where's my rights!!!!! I didn't ask and nobody asked me if I wanted one of those jobs.
