The worst kind of capitalism? Good god, you hippy. Wal Mart (and Target) will sell you WHAT EVER YOU WANT. American's say they don't want cheap crap from China. Don't want slave made products (except when it's Apple of course, and who doesn't love Apple :-)) I don't shop at Wal Mart, but I'm not so silly to realize these companies won't bend to however our pocketbooks push them. They even tried placing American made products next to foreign made, people simply would not pay extra for the domestic product.
Wal Mart does abuse it's suppliers. And who wins? The low income folks who shop there. God forbid we put Wal Mart in charge of healthcare. It'd be nearly free and widely accessible.
So why exactly do we need a train that goes from King Center to Centennial Park? How about from Piedmont Park to Downtown? Or from where people LIVE to where people WORK. I just drove by the King Center on my way to Rolling Bones. Didn't seem to be any traffic troubles.
