I am happy to hear from a successful retail owner. I miss the quaint stores and local crafts.

I know it has to be hard in these times.

I wondered about the walmart relevance in that post myself. LOL

Congrats to you for your successful business! The key is creating a need in the community, and you obviously are doing that well! I tip my hat to you kind sir...

What I want to know is when U.S. workers all make $5,000 a year, who will be able to afford WalMart - or any other place for that matter?

Funny but that's what they need to be to compete in the NEW global economy. Except of course if you are a banker, or broker because they ad value(?)

Bachler, same here...their lot is for a quicky stop and sleep..PERIOD

Has Walmart killed America? NO.....They are a business in search of goods to resale. They buy their goods from usually the cheapest source possible. If those goods had to correct amount of import taxes applied, as they should...they would most likely NOT be buying from those sources...I don't really see how 1 can blame Walmart, if Walmart didn't make the loophole that creates such a way to purchase at a super low cost.

Walmart also offers camping, which the mom and pop stores don't offer.

Walmart is not killing America. Nothing is killing America. America is still the greatest country on earth and will remain so. Why? Because Americans can adapt. I also miss the mom and pop cornor store. But that was then and this is now. Our kids and grand children will adapt just like we did. Instead of AT&T,and all the baby bells, they will work for Verizon, or Sprint, or Dish or Direct TV. Etc. Their are areas of this country begging for labor to fill jobs. Future generations might have to move to find them. Well paying jobs. They are there. Search the internet.

As long as so many countries exclude major portions of thier population, women, gays, wrong religion, wrong color, immigrants, etc they will remain underproductive. America keeps getting more productive all the time. We aren't perfect, and have a long way to go, but we progress faster than any other country. That doesn't mean we can't use ideas from other countries. We can and should if they are successful. America is and will remain great.

But yes, I miss the good old days. One TV channel, a two party phone line, stores closed on Sunday, no internet, no cell phone, no iPad. Wait, no I don't.

If I posted on "what was killing America" it'd be removed for being too political!

The "Death Tax" is one of many things "killing America." Lets say Dad built up the corner hardware store into a million dollar business. When Dad dies the kids get the business with an inheritance tax of about 45% which must be paid within six months. Sell the house? Try to borrow 500,000? Or just sell or close the business. The town says things like "Dad was such a great business man, but the kids just couldn't make things go when he died." Really!!! They just couldn't cover the taxes, basiclly re-purchasing the business from the government.
Enough of my rant....it's not Walmart.
JMHO

Just to set the record straight, the estate tax exemption is 5 million not 1 million. A pretty tidy sum I think. So the tax on the 5 million inheritance is 0. A pretty low rate don't you think?

The $5 million limit is about to expire and go back to $1 million unless Congress renews it - no guarantee there with "all pay fair share. . ."
