Never seen anything like that at any walmarts near me. Only thing I do see is canning supply. Lots of gardeners here though.

I just do not understand all the Wal-Mart bashing. I wish my local Wal-Mart carried more in the "prepper/survival" line.
Since Wal-Mart is still growing and making a profit, maybe we need their execs to run the country!

Thanks Dan and a Welcome Home to you too sir! You know, it took 28 years after I came home from Vietnam for me to hear "Welcome Home"! I was in a near by town and some guy in a black pickup pulled up next to me at a light, rolled down his window and said "Welcome Home". He had no doubt seen my USMC / Vietnam sticker on my rear window. People just don't understand how much that means to me, but I know you do.........Welcome Home brother!

A lot of my bad blood with Walmart came about when my youngest daughter started working there.

I dont hold it against anyone if they choose to shop there(dont even criticize them), I have even been known to pass through their doors on rare occasions. In todays consumer society that seems to have the mindset of "throw it away and buy a new one", the Walmart executives have capitalized on that and have done quite well.

I dont often publicly bash them though unless some one point blank, directly asks me my openion. Sometimes the Asker gets kinda Irate when I give them the openion they asked for. I do seem to be in the minority.

As long as they are there and if they have something I cant get anywere else, I'll go there.

100% understand what you mean or even worse when on a social media board like this when you just share your OWN personal opinion on a subject that is counter to others and then get hated for it or called a troll. I mean being called a troll for having your own different opinion... LOL

I know I have opinions that are not very popular and when the haters get all worked up over my opinions it only goes to reinforce them even more.

CharlindaBob, My husband served in Vietnam, Air Force communications base always being targeted. He has struggled over the years, and when he started working where he is now, there were a lot of Vietnamese who had escaped Vietnam, working with him. One his first Veterans Day there, several of them came over, asked where he was stationed at, then shook his hand and said "thank you". That was something special to him, knowing being over there was important to these people who wanted American GI help over there (although the outcome was not what both wanted).

He was treated badly when he first came home, being targeted at the airport by protestors...his own fellow citizens. So having these people thank him, was a healing moment.

probably happened when they widened the aisles a while back and cut back on how much stuff they carry. At least my WM did when they remodeled. They have lots and lots of unused aisle space now.

"I" have never been bashed or called a troll for my opinions "HERE". I am of the frame of mind that everyone has a right to their own opinions and I respect that.

Opinions are formed by ones own experiences and since we all obviously have been down different roads, it would be strange indeed if we all had the feelings about all things. Prepping? we all sought out this site for the pretty much the same reason. "Preparing" For The Unknown", so most of us share a common thought on that.

I have found that their is much to be learned even from those whose opinions differ dramatically from mine so I accept them in that light. Name calling and ridicule, not a good thing(even though I have recently been guilty of that myself).

I'm never too proud to learn something new.
