Wal Mart

Wal Mart, uploaded by Wearn.

So, it's finally happened. I went to Wal Mart. I bought things. I felt dirty afterwards, like I'd pissed all over the flag. I needed to take a shower. It felt yucky.

I really do believe that Wal Mart represents everything bad about America. It is the dominance of corporations and the homogenizing of the country, and reducing pay scales to "greeter" or "stocker" or "cashier."

But where else can you find notebooks for 10 cents and Spam for $1.50? What a cruel world.

well I disagree with you there. I think that Vegas represents everything that's wrong about America. Dripping with greed, consumption,and companies taking advantage of people who can't afford to be taken advantage of. Walmart is maybe second.
