They don't do anything any other major retailer does so if blame is going to be passed it should be passed to the manafacturer,IMO.

If you actually look into Walmart.  You will find they do many horrible things, that other companies do not do.

We cant place all the blame on any one person or place. The manufacturers import from China, Walmart stocks their products and then we buy them...  I think it would really take a team effort to pull out of China..

I think it should be on the manufacturer. Although wal-mart is still evil, lol :)

I am a as long as we're not starving our kids let's agree to disagree with what we feed them, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, pro-life, bible believing follower of Christ, college graduate, stay at home, hot Momma of Kendal, a sweet, mellow baby girl and married to the love of my life :) Any other questions? ;)

Yes, because they could just as easily purchase from US companies as well. They are the largest distributor nation wide and can afford to add some US companies to the supply as an example to other stores.

Yes I do believe this too.  Then again he did raise his kids, and married his wife.  He must have had a hand in how greedy they all became.
