    My wife made me get NETFLIX
    But just came from one of many Wal-Mart's in my area. Got a box of 380 for my son in laws birthday tomorrow. Handgun ammo at this location is almost all gone. Which was usually a slow seller at this location. I remember all those Shortage Crisis growing up in the 70s. Fuel, Beef, Chicken. In the 90s it was AK receivers, 9mm and 22 ammo and reloading primers. So I'm not worried about the current trend. If they don't sell what I'm looking for I will buy it elsewhere.

    Other than that I’ve never seen any of these notorious freak “people of Walmart” you hear about.

    True story.
    LOL that reminds me of the time I saw this crazy old guy in a batman costume at the akard station and he was yelling about how hispanics and cops were ruining the city, and then sat down and shut up when a hispanic cop turned the corner from field street..............some crazy times downtown

    1. Netflix. None.

    2. Not into sports. Will kinda watch if I'm at a bar or a friend's house who happens to be watching. Otherwise none.

    3. Have a Nike shirt but bought it years ago.

    4. NFL Jerseys. See #2

    5. NASCAR definitely not. If you ever catch me watching cars doing circles for hours while lined up behind each other I give you permission to shoot me.

    I do not have NetFlix and do not like sports. I belong to the NRA for now. I have not owned anything Nike in years.

    I don't think it is possible to find a large corporation that is not run by leftists, large stores anyway. You might as well be Amish and make your own stuff.

    I've only ever used my parent's netflix, but haven't for a long time. They haven't had anything worth watching for years now. I don't follow any sports really. Other than going to someone's house to watch the super bowl that's it.

    I get all my clothes, and most groceries, from Costco. For anything I don't get there, I usually get it from a grocery store. But that's maybe once a month I'll buy a couple small items.

    I rarely go there for anything, but now I will try and make that less.
    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    I will never be a Wal-mart supporter. When the local Wal-mart opened here I needed employment so to the job of working nights unloading many, many trucks and stocking shelves. Since people were wondering what Wal-mart was all about, they gave us the shpeal about "only 20% of our products are from foreign countries". After handling just about everything in the store I was unable to come across ANYTHING made in America. The vast majority of products were/are from China. When I brought this up to management they became outright beligerant with me.
    So, has anyone else ever thought to look at what you buy and at least try to buy American when you can? Or do you only worry about saving pennies? So much for defending American workers. Instead give your money to the Chinese Government.
    Notice that I didn't say ... give your money to the Chinese people. You are not helping the Chinese people as much as you are feeding the Chinese government.
    Consider that China is now doing their best to control communications world wide. Google "The Claws of The Red Dragon". That movie comes out in the fall.
    Think of how your years of shopping at Wal-mart has put Americans at risk. Don't start whining now that they have decided to stop selling ammo and guns. You have been funding the left all along. But refuse to see it. In a previous post it was stated the Hilary was on the Board at Wal-mart. Why am I not surprised?!
    China already has their own shipping ports in CA. What's next?

    AWW, hell. Just go about your business.

    Haven't been in one for a long time and don't plan too. Cheap ammo was the only draw before. As far as buying American, I do try but it isn't always easy

    It is not just China.
    Many countries in the world today are exporters of goods.
    Competition for the US and other countries.
    Vietnam, South Korea, Thailand, South America, Indobesia etc
    , etc.

    We are not the only big dog on the planet.

    Buying US goods is a good idea when quality, cost and availability.

    Good luck finding anything 100% American made. A lot of things made by American companies are made in whole or in part in another country. Some things made by foreign companies in America are more American made than products made by American companies. Everyone wants to blame Walmart for Chinese items sold here. Walmart is not the only ones who sell Chinese products. If you want to blame anyone for the large amount of Chinese products in America, why don't you blame those who are responsible - politicians? Government is the one that gave us high taxes and lots of regulations. That is why so much is made in other countries. If anyone thinks these jobs that went to China are coming back, you are fooling yourself. Not only high taxes and lots of regulations keep them from coming back, no one wants to work in factories anymore. Many skilled jobs are going unfilled because no one wants to work anymore. Kids get out of high school and go to college for something they can't get hired for and they have very high student debt. Usually the cost is more than just pennies between American and Chinese. If it was only pennies, companies would not spend millions of dollars to build in China and then have the high cost of shipping to America and then the high cost of shipping, warehousing, and distribution throughout America. Since I do not have unlimited amounts of money, I try to save where I can. But depending on what I buy (car, lawn equipment, high priced items) I buy the highest or very high quality that I can afford or willing to spend regardless of country of origin with very limited exceptions. There are a very select few countries I will not buy products from. I never bought into buy American just to buy American. I believe in free market economy and capitalism. If people are not buying American products, maybe American companies need to build better products. Just because something is made in America does not automatically make it the best or even good. I know of a lot of American made products that are junk.

    Back when everyone's Dad had a giant gun cabinet with all glass doors, usually a couple of shotguns a deer rifle or two a Garand, a 1911 and some Military memorabilia.
    If someone would have professed some anti-gun opinion, they likely would have been asked to take their commie ass out to the backyard for a beating.

    We are the ones that need to try our best to keep those days alive. Although that is now quite a daunting task, please don’t give up. This is how I grew up and can not remember when there wasn’t a 1911 in my dads bottom drawer, loaded. We are all that’s left of what made this country great and kept it that way for a long time. Technology seems to have made mankind lazy and dumb, just look back and think about it. You better know how to hunt, build shelter, skin animals for clothing, climb a tree, make safe drinking water, etc. These are very basic skills that man has lost, mostly. I live in a hole and stay close to my kind. Almost forgot, F#&K Wally World and all alike. I never did like that place.
