Does the name...Sam Walton ring a bell with you?

Hi, I see that this place, this water cooler, has hardly any drinkers...so I thought I'd take a sip and try it out. Ok, Sam Walton brought to the people a wonderful and great service. That is, Sam bought stuff really cheap in great volume and offered lower prices which evolved into Wal Mart, the largest single operation in the world,so at least that is what we are told.

Sam just might turn over in his grave, if he has one, knowing that his company has pressured governments, maybe everywhere, but for sure here in Maine, to start charging sales tax on items bought on the Internet, and by the way, Wal Mart does a giant business on line.

That's it! Wal Mart is pressuring governments, perhaps all over the world where they do business, to place sales tax on items bought on line.

This, in my not so humble opinion, IS that this could be the little germ that kills off this humungous snake-like cancer which preys upon citizens of the world.

Oh how much I would like to cuss big time, but I gave it up...the point is that it's not a way to do business. Well, Sam Walton...what the heck are we going to do about this thing? Ought we go ahead and do nothing and let Wal Mart crumble? What say you...Sam?

We took a stand today. We did not shop at Walmart. Normally at the first of the month when we get money we run off to Walmart and spend at least $100 for paper products, soaps, and some food items, but not this month. Nope,
we did our main shopping at our Bell's IGA and also our local Shop and Save.

In other words we are done with Walmart...not only for the Tax on the Internet which they are pushing to have the Federal GOvernment tax us even more, but on other dissatisfactions with Walmart and their pushing cheap goods made in other countries on Americans.

American are like sitting ducks.

Gee, I can't believe what happened today,
August 6, 2012. My wife took me into
Wal Mart today after returning from Machais.
I followed her around like a little boy while
she spent about $60 dollars at Wal Mart.

However, I did get the chance to speak to
one of the cashiers who was red lining at the time,
and I told her about Wal Mart working day and night,
my words, that the giant wants governments to
start charging sales tax on items bought on line.

She didn't say a thing as another customer came
along and I moved along just as my wife
caught up with me.

Such a joy to be a part of something big!
