Why walmart is wealthy and powerful?? First, who don't want to make their hard earned money last. Which folks who are living paycheck to paycheck and on a fixed income. Only see the price is cheap not the merchandise. Hopefully, with the recent made in china and else where products will wake up americans. Products that are made elsewhere is hurting us all, we are losing are jobs and health. China is friends with North Korea, which North Korea will love to see us all die. Walmart new slogan save money live better,... well don't you think we all should fill in between those words??? Save money....only for a short moment because this product will fall apart or break then we walmart CEOs will live better after misleading the consumer.
They are powerful because Big corporations run the government..... If you remember each polictian has their hands in some big corporation payroll. If you was a business man and don't like the rules what do you do?? You run for public office to have laws change to suit you or you pay someone who would go batting for you.
Remember you get what you paid for. I guess for now read labels and or take up sewing for clothes, crafts for toys, and get back doing what good old fashion americans do best it is called self reliance.
