    Looks like stocking the shelves with organic wheat grass and twigs, and the whole granola head "going green" propaganda went over like a fart in church, with the retail chain's long-time core customer base....Let the sniffing and derision from the usual suspect hoity-toity leftist snobs commence!

    When you have to feed and cloth your kids, and have to count the coins in the jar to do so.

    You don't give a fig if Joe the Plumber helped make them or Jet Li's little brother did.

    there was nothing wrong with the food or cloths for kids at wal-mart.

    Just don't buy anything there you plan to keep for a few years.
