I don't know if this is obvious to others, but here's my problem with this...

They pay their employees so little that they have to rely on welfare and donations.

Walmart's answer? To have their customers buy more of their products to then donate to underpaid employees...AND WALMART MAKES A PROFIT ON THOSE EXTRA SALES!!!

I want to effing vomit.

Only a liberal would see collecting food for people in need as evil. When the blue team collects food for people in need its good, but when those dastardly red team people do it, well... evil.

Instead of paying their employees more money, they ask their customers to buy more food to donate to employees so that Walmart PROFITS FROM THE EXTRA SALES.

How do you not see that as pure evil?

Really? Do you not think the 16 billion dollar per year monster couldn't just pay their employees decent salaries instead of scamming the customers out of buying even more of their products?

I see. If they were less profitable and helped people then it would be better. Being more profitable and helping people is evil. Profit = evil.

lol Pure evil. Really? Helping people and being profitable is on par with wanton murder. It is the sort of thing that Hitler would have done. The Joker would make this sort of plan. Not the cutesy TV show joker: The Heath Ledger(sp?) psychopath Joker. He would collect food for the needy, because that is evil.

They created the need that they are profiting from "fixing".

Imagine if a construction company built a house based on sub-standard material and design. Then took out an insurance policy on the house they built after they sold it to a family. They profit from selling the house and then profit when the house falls apart.

That's evil.

Sometimes there's a not-so-fine line between contrarian and doofus.

Seriously. I honestly don't know how anyone can seriously defend this.

That is not a reasonable analogy. Try this on for size. You run, say, a five and dime. People work for you for low wages. They do a job like stocking shelves. Stocking shelves is a job that goes for nine dollars an hour. You have a nine dollar an hour employee who needs help. So, you do something to help that nine dollar an hour employee. Not evil. Not even close. What do you recommend? Should we pay people $20/hr to stock shelves at WalMart?

Do something to help the employee...like donating food yourself or allowing the employee to buy the food at cost. You don't ask customers to buy more of your product to donate to that employee while you pocket the profits from the extra sales and not give your employee a raise.

I think Billy Ocean nailed it. You've gone from being a contrarian to being a doofus.
