I knew the stuff in #24 was happening. It was just a matter of time.

Pfft, you know those low prices don't come from nowhere. Even without story being published people know about it. Of course the majority of people walking around don't know, but some do.

But unless one of these affects someone personally, people don't seem to care.

I read it on the Internet. I formed no opinion. I took it to heart and looked at supporting views and disproving views where and when I could.

I think most people here are smart enough to read and make their own opinions without being told what their opinions should be.

People want stuff cheaply. Walmart provides it. They do it by remaining lean.

If people are willing to work for them for minimum wage, then Walmart has employees. If not, they don't. When those employees leave, they will have valuable work experience to take to their next jobs, which are likely to pay more than Walmart did, or have a better environment, making it more-attractive to the employee in a non-monetary way.

I know 24 is true I've heard bit and snips for the last couple years and I looked up the bills yep they are there. And yes the us and canada just(2001 or '02) signed a treaty that would require exit visas (just like the former ussr and a small number of other spiffy countries) during a draft. I beleive they called it Pre-clearence but a duck by any other name is still a duck.

On the up side, women will be drafted now too, so they are one big step closer to equality.
