    with people who believe that "low price" is the ONLY thing that matters.

    Walmart's customers refuse to hear, refuse to accept that the low prices of the products they purchase result from the mistreatment, humiliation, and poverty of hundreds of thousands of their fellow Americans and millions more of their fellow human beings.

    ALL that matters to them is that they can get whatever toy the last advertisement they saw convinced them they absolutely cannot live without, for the lowest possible price.

    I believe that the only way Walmart customers are able to continue to see themselves as decent, moral human beings, is to not allow themselves to know and understand that it is only the ongoing misery and poverty of hundreds of thousands and probably millions of their fellow human beings that makes those "bargains" possible; that IF only they would give up the pursuit of the lowest possible price and decide to buy only from companies that they know for a fact, treat employees as the buyers themselves would like to be treated.

    "For the love of money is the root of all evil..." and between the Walton's love of money and Walmart customers' love of money they are doing a whole lot of evil.
