A view of the world from a hillbilly perspective.

I was born and went to school in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, in southern West Virginia. After graduating from college, I got married, and began working in Bristol, TN. I have have various jobs from Tennessee to up state New York and a few points between. Now I work in West Virginia. Some day, I want to live in Alaska.

Wal Mart Haters

Why do people hate Wal Mart? In this story we are told all about it

"We're told Wal-Mart doesn't pay its employees enough. It doesn't offer generous enough benefits. It puts small mom-and-pop stores out of business. Wal-Mart isn't environment-friendly. And the company uses government to help it expand."

If there are better jobs available, why not go to those jobs? Maybe Wal Mart did create some jobs.

If Wal Mart is evil...

"These wizards should start their own companies and pay entry-level retail workers as much as they think is "enough," and of course offer a generous package of health care and other benefits to both full and part-time employees. Problem solved!"

People have the right to shop and work anywhere they want. If you do not like Wal Mart, do not shop there.

Did you know that Wal Mart contributed to the greenhouse gases according to Illinois Student Environmental Network and Students for Environmental Concerns:

"Wal-Mart and other "big box" retailers gobble up prime farmland and other natural habitat every day. While we worry about feeding the more than six billion people on this planet, our cities and counties allow the destruction of lush farmland that could provide sustenance for more people. The problem, generally referred to as "urban sprawl," continues to grow. . . . Sprawl also increases car-dependency for a community, raising the amount of greenhouse gases emitted and causing consumers to use more gas."

Just goes to show, when you are number one, everyone is out to get you. As for me, I think I'll keep going there.
