Just got done watching "Wal-Mart; The high cost of low prices" yesterday. Good documentary. A must-see. From exploiting workers here and abroad, to groundwater contamination, to undeserved federal subsidies, you name it, they're doing it. They've taken daddy Walton's dream and turned it into one of the biggest POS corporations on the planet.

From the doc: cost to manufacture product in China (didn't catch what it was): 81 cents. Cost to American consumer: $14.98.

Never spent a penny there, never will.
