    Who said I don't mind? That is your assumption. Once again thank you for pointing out where American laws permit Tom Cruise to get his millions and I would consider his salary outrageous.

    What do people like Tom Cruise do from being millionaires? They marry 5 times, they abuse drugs, and they say stupid things while people for no particular reason pay attention to what they say.

    Big, you go right ahead, but I think it's pointless to argue with a troll. They aren't interested in the argument per se, except to the extent they think they can use it to provoke you. I mean, if you say A, he's going to say B. If you say B, he's going to say A. That's the nature of the troll.

    Wait a second if I say A and you say B then, well, can I call you a troll? Isn't that all you are doing, matclone? Call a spade a spade. Look yourself in the mirror.

    I am a troll because I disagree with your liberal worldview. That is a juvenile way to have discussions/debates. wah-wah, you're a troll. Namecalling or unsubstantitive responses like yours usual mean someone has been defeated in an argument.

    Just my opinion. I respect your voice, I just don't think it makes sense.

    From what I've seen here, it's out of line to call Iggy a troll.

    He says that people enjoy working at WalMart - I agree
    He implies that WalMart is a great company - I agree
    He says that corporations provide far more good than bad - I agree
    He says that a growing company is better than a stagnant company - I agree

    Big, you seem to have something against WalMart. Low prices, convenience, jobs for all skill levels, etc... I guess I'm missing the point here. Do you only go to gas stations where the station attendants are given benefits. Do you only eat at restaurants where the wait staff gets benefits? If so, you must not get out much.

    I guess if Iggy is at the front of the troll line, then I'm right there with him.

    There was a huge discussion on the old board about Walmart's treatment of employees and the consensus was that the treatment is terrible. I think our poster fanforlife even worked at Walmart. You must have missed it Flop.

    Where I shop has nothing to do with how that place treats its employees. For necessities, I go where I get the best deal for my interests no matter how unethical that deal was acquired.

    "consensus was that the treatment is terrible"

    A "consensus" reached on a chat board isn't worth much. Just because most of the posters on this site are anti-Wal Mart (and I'm only going by your synopsis), that doesn't mean that it's a correct or logical point of view.

    "Where I shop has nothing to do with how that place treats its employees. For necessities, I go where I get the best deal for my interests no matter how unethical that deal was acquired"

    I agree with that point of view. The ironic thing is that many people who bash away on chat boards at Wal Mart and other big boxes don't mind actually spending money there on the weekends.

    Still doesn't mean that place is ethically run. People need to live, so they shop. If you have a tight budget, you will get the goods at the place that provides the best deal.

    The system sucks when the best places are those that do unethical things.

    Oh please. Then you evidently don't understand what a troll does, or looks like. This is not about politics, Flop. Also, in case you're think "Iggy" is a new person, he's not, nor is my calling him out based only on this thread. He's Donkey on the other forum, and has used a thousand other names before that. And he's a troll in every sense of the word.
