A group of people trying to make a family tree of all humankind. No small feat, but it's sort of fun. Give it a try. You can add your own info or that of your family members to see your own family tree.
For the love of GAWD....
please stop shopping at Wal-mart!!!
From the article...
"It's the world's largest company--bigger than ExxonMobil, General Motors, and General Electric."
"It sells in three months what number-two retailer Home Depot sells in a year."
"To survive in the face of its pricing demands, makers of everything from bras to bicycles to blue jeans have had to lay off employees and close U.S. plants in favor of outsourcing products from overseas."
"...dozens of companies contacted declined to talk about even the basics of their business with Wal-Mart... Why in the world would we talk about Wal-Mart? Ask me about anything else, we'll talk. But not Wal-Mart." (what are they, the mob??)
So the moral of this story is, support your local businesses. Stop lining the pockets of Sam Walton's heirs.
