So it is a Win-win situation for small business. Big boxes either collapse or attempt to shield their immorality through directly benefitting them. What more could they ask for?
So you are actually admitting that what big business does is wrong and immoral..It's a short jump from there to being downright illegal..
You admitted that earlier when we were talking of Wal-Marts hiring policies on benefits and also the employment of illegal immigrants..
So where exactly does the glowing reference of big business come into play?
I know we may have agreed slightly on a more level playing field; and of big business helping small; but not on the particulars, I think..
Does Satan really promote true belief in God?
It's almost the same topic without religion,of course..
Fear and condescension may bring in a few dollars here and there; but by no means does it build a solid foundation for small business success..That only comes from the big boys in Washington relinquishing thier love of subsidy checks and lobbying dollars in favor of the betterment of the general economy...
Frankly; in the course of this debate, you've not brought a single point to bear that could contradict that thought; nor do I even expect you to find one..
Simply because it isn't possible. To do so would be putting the welfare of the many above the one, and most politicians are unable to do so..
I'm sorry to burst a bubble of positivity; I really am; but Wal-Mart has all of those things..Really..
I'm not being a jerk here. Just shop in one..You'll see them all..So much for the unique market..
First of all, Subways are seldom in big box retailers.
Really? Because there's one in each of the Wal-Marts in my town alone..Tells you something about the larger picture..And yes; there are more; not just in Lafayette, Indiana..
Pottery Barn is also a chain franchise; in case you missed it; and Big Al is more than likely loading his food up with MSG just to compete with the Texas Road House just down the block..
That's the sad state we've come to..
...And nowhere in that sentence does it imply that the times are changing for the better..
Necessities are a gauranteed trip to whatever store you choose..As to quality; that's relative and subjective..What you consider quality may be absolute crap to me..Is McHeartProblems really quality?
Nor do I know what your true passion is..
If it's smothering entrepeneurship; you're well on your way with your argument so far..
In addition; is Wal-Marts' example the only one you have to use in a sea of monopolies?
If so; it's pretty weak; but so far it's all you've had to offer not only myself; but also our judges..
One huge company cannot convince us of the merits of all of them..
