    I disagree with the timing of the decrease is small businesses.
    I just watch the documentary 'The cost of Walmart'( not sure on the title.
    But is proved that Walmart ran out of business small or family owened stores before the other things you mentioned.

    Add in all the tax breaks they get too.
    It also mentioned that not onlly the tax breaks they get, but also the huge costs on State budgets cuz so many people are on social programs like health care and food stamps vuz of their low wages.

    I rec people watching the show.
    They are a burden on most States.
    Just how much more money do they need?

    Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?
