    We are all different. I was surprised when I heard Justice Scalia and Justice Ginsburg were friends. That seemed very broad minded for people so committed to their opposite ideologies.

    Then I realized, maybe they just enjoyed each other's company.

    My wife hates Walmart, because she doesn't like to be around the people who shop there. I feel somewhat the same, but I also enjoy see the weirdos from the trailer parks and ghettos who pack the place. They are more interesting than a zoo full of animals.

    Some day I mean to ask one of them why all Walmart shoppers talk on their phones as they shop by putting them on speaker and holding the phone 2 feet out, directly in front of their face, while they talk loud enough to still be heard.

    Like this, but imagine she weights 300 lbs. and is wearing yoga pants with cartoon characters and a snoop dogg T-shirt:

    I'm the same way. I don't see any reason to hang around people I don't like and I truly hate people who believe in socialism and the leftist ideology. No interest in being friends with people who I honestly believe should be hung just to make the world a better place.

    Looks to me like that's exactly what they're starting to do: https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/w...ts-responsible-firearms-retailer-partnership/

    No ammo? No big deal, more money for the mom and pop stores. No open carry? Their property, their rules. But I'll be damned if I'm gonna spend my hard earned money at a place I know is gonna funnel it to anything with Mayor Nanny State's fingerprints on it.

    There's Wal Mart's and then there's Wal Mart's. One near a tourist city is a real United Nation's with so many different languages spoken I don't know how the cashier's operate. Plenty of ghetto types that communicate by shouting at each other down the length of the aisles. We avoid this one from Memorial Day until after Labor Day. The other is quiet, never crowded and has a kind of class to it, if any Wal Mart can have "Class." Stock and Field just opened across the highway so I have an ammunition and gun store to go to after the 10 minutes we spend in Wal Mart.

    I like Walmart because: Nathan’s onion rings $2.32 a bag, Dr pepper $6.98 a cube, 20 lbs of rice $8.53 and 9mm ammo for .17 cents

    I am not "boycotting" them. I stopped shopping before they stopped selling their duddy ammo. Wal mart is partners with bloomberg and the every town for gun safety crowd, which translates into socialists trying to take away our rights.

    So you just stopped shopping there on ideological grounds, but it isn’t a boycott, ok.

    My wife needed a new wireless mouse last night for work, and that’s the only place that had one. Lol

    The fact of the matter is that there are probably thousands of products that folks use on a regular basis that simply are no longer made in the U.S. We can't buy it if someone isn't making it.

    Well, yeah, because they have the lowest prices so the EBT allotment buys more. This is the same reason most folks shop at Walmart - their dollar goes further regardless of whether you earn the dollar or it is given to you by the government. It isn't as if the amount of EBT dollars handed out would go down if WalMart quit taking EBT cards. The EBT recipients would just take the same dollars and go somewhere else. How is any of that Walmart's fault?

    Your correct most major stores like Walmart ,Target and Grocery stores would have to scale way back or close if legislation were to end deadbeatism , but that won't happen deadbeats are a large voting block and it's only taxpayers money buying more votes for Government ain't it great forcing those with a spine and pride to feed ,cloth ,house and indoctrinate the lazy and spinless !

    Yeah, they would certainly notice, but I'm not sure anyone would be closing or even having to "scale way back". Total food stamps is $102B. Spread that out over every grocery store and convenience store in the country, plus add in the fact that the folks on food stamps are still going to have to buy some groceries and I'm not sure it is going to be the economic disaster you're predicting. And just as trivia, Walmart's share of the food stamp pie is around 18%.

    This^^^^

    Walmart crossed the line and gave our constitution a big F.U. I have a real problem with that

    I appreciate you actually putting the price for 9mm ammo in your post. I buy mine from Academy ($.18) and am glad to know WM isn’t much cheaper. I was starting to think I should have been braving the crowds based on the reaction to them stopping sales.

    I have no allegiance to Walmart but I do to my bank account, the last boycott I was a believer in was save a tree eat a beaver.
