    Did you even think before you commented.

    Here are some reasons NYC might not want a Wal-Mart:

    1. Wal-Mart CAUSES sprawl
    1. Wal-Mart directly causes the closing of competing, local businesses
    1. Wal-Mart does not pay a living wage, and actively encourages its employees to apply for forms of public assistance.  This is a huge drain on communities

    Now WF, yes, they are being asses in their lobbying, but their impact to local communities is noting like WM.  Think before you try to be clever

    All this wasted time learning and acquiring skills... And all along I should have just squinted to see Russia
