Why is Walmart Evil?

As stated in my last post, my wife and I are starting over from scratch. We literally have -  a couple of beds, some kids furniture and a crib, and old TV, two computers, our wedding bands, our clothes, a van with over 100,000 miles and a 23 year old truck with over 240,000 miles on it. Everything else we had we sold we went broke. That is our starting point. That is not stated to garner any pity about our situation, it is simply to demonstrate where we are.

Over the last week, we have been feverishly shopping to find items for our new home. We have been pricing dishes, cookware, bedding, towels and washcloths, and paint. We have been to Kohl's, JC Penney, Sears, Macy's, Elder Beerman, Hobby Lobby, Marshall's, Sam's, Kmart, and Walmart. NO ONE has been able to match Walmart on price and selection. Frankly, the bedding that we found at the department stores was ugly and it was 3-4 times more expensive than Walmart.

We work too hard for the money that we have to waste it. We shop at Walmart because we can, and if we are going to be good stewards of the money we are blessed with, then we go to Walmart because we have to - better selection, better price. Why WOULDN'T we go there? And based off of Walmart's continued growth, a lot of other people go there as well.

Someone please explain to me, WITH FACTS, why Walmart is evil. I don't want to hear your whining about what you HEARD, or what you THINK maybe happened somewhere to someone in some situation. Tell me YOUR PERSONAL STORY as to why Walmart is evil.

Ready, set...GO!!!!
