    Walmart is run by right wing nuts from Arkansas.

    And the stuff they sell is crap.

    The big guys, your employers and bosses, try to get you to do what they want - even to vote for the candidate that they want!?! :eek: Really? You don't say. No offence but this is one of those no-brainers. Of course it is illegal and unethical, but it happens. If you want to maintain employment, then go with the flow, don't rock the boat. If you see any mischief, just keep your mouth shut and you won't get into trouble. :eusa_shhh: That is just the way things work.

    70% of Walmart's products are made in China.

    If you were running a company that big, you wouldn't buy the cheapest products you could?

    I'm all for American made products, but until we start manufacturing products that can compete with China's on the global market, where else do you EXPECT companies to go?

    Well except for the whole "private" vote thing, No one can know how you voted. You can vote for the God of War and say you voted for McCain and No one will ever know.

    Interesting phraseology. I hope you achieved in your life what she has, but whatever.....

    As for the whole walmart thing, why wouldn't they support someone who will continue with an FTC that allows in cheap chinese products contaminated with lead?

    Shocking, eh?
