Who cares about the riches people in the U.S., and there are people who still go to bed hungry?

I agree with not shopping at Wal-mart.  Mr. Walton who started these stores did so with the buy american.  Everything he stocked was made in the USA and there was nothing not american in any of his stores.  You are right is all about the money now that daddy is gone.  What ever happened to carrying on your fathers legacy?  Its easy to see that his idea's and wishes died with him.  Thank you for trying with your Sam's clubs and Wal-marts while you were alive.  We will continue to miss you and your Idea's.

 Of course there has to be three Waltons on there. Walmart is one of the biggest rip off corporations in the US. PLEEEEEEEASE STOP shopping there. They are the ruination of the economy in the USA. They are becoming a monopoly. There are NO values in that company. They only see $$$ signs.
