    They are better at almost every aspect of everyday retail than any other company, period.

    The Wall of China crowd ignore that more than 50% of every dollar of revenue comes from US sourced products. I think it is funny, these same people are posting from a phone made in either South Korea or China (or both).

    I have never heard any of these same people speak of the China content from Apple, I guess Apple is just too thin, too cool, to take a swipe at them, oh, and they make my phone!

    The truth is, people who don’t have a life outside their persona on some backwater internet forum are the biggest detractors. Everyone else is either shopping there or too vain to shop there.

    That too is the truth.

    If Sam Walton was still alive, this CEO that stopped selling the handgun ammo would be unemployed.There use to be pictures of Sam Walton shooting quail in my local walmart up until a few years ago.When I use to visit Bentonville I never heard a bad word said about him.

    To me the issue with Wal Mart is that they have partnered witn Michael Bloomberg to disarm America. They are using their might to suggest that the 2nd is about hunting snd target shooting and finally, I don’t care for Doug McMillon lecturing to me about what type of firearms I need to own. I am not saying I will never shop at Wal Mart again. I am saying I will avoid Wal Mart as much as I can.

    I think giving Walmart employees a bad time gives the shopper a sense of power they get nowhere else in life. They get to make some (imagined) clever remark or snide comment. For a short time they are not the normal bottom feeder.

    I think I was asked for the receipt twice. I smiled and handed it over. I was thanked and I smiled and said your welcome. They're doing they're job. Would you like to be hassled doing yours? To whoever said "No, thank you." Did that make you feel big? Did that put them their place? What a loser!

    Yeah. At least their CEO didn't say some crazy BS, like "men that choose to wear dresses deserve the same civil rights protections as a race of people".

    That looks more like a Costco.

    I will use the self checkout and be out of there. They are adding more. Sometimes will order online and pu in store, could be cheaper this way.

    Is that a theory or is there something to it?

    After seeing this pic seven times, I'm guessing that whatever store that is accused him of something like CC, when posted or shop lifting and this was his "see I am not" reaction.

    I would guess that many of those stores stopped firearm sales, due to not wanting to keep up with changing regulations.
    Openly supporting knee jerk gun control is different.

    Oh stop, you haven’t the faintest idea what you are talking about. Over 50% of what Walmart sells today is US sourced. If you want to beat up a company about their China content, protest Apple, President Trump’s best friend in American business is Tim Cook, the Gay buyer turned super CEO, managing a company whose product content is over 50% China sourced and couldn’t build a million iPhones in the US if somebody put a gun to his head.

    Humans are such simians.

    I did, but you got me!
    I re-thought my post and changed it, but not fast enough.
    I concede.

    I know we're good, though, because your avatar is still smiling at me.

    Did you miss the part where they went to the govt and asked for the AWB to be brought back?
    Sorry my friend, i will NEVER support anti-gun businesses.
