    This will have far reaching implications as the two of you have pointed out.

    We stopped shopping at Walmart a long time ago. The only reason I even go near Walmart is that they have a Chick Fil A in the parking lot and a Tractor Supply across the highway.

    I've threatened the same, due to poor service. But, alas, I'm weak. It's just been too convenient.:BangHead:

    I understand. I don't judge anybody who does. I just don't do it, myself.

    Believe me, I know what a drag it is to have to drive halfway around the world to buy something from a local seller when you can get it down the street for less.

    Took us a long time to break that habit, too.

    Another quaffs the PC koolaid, and just sets the stage for a more aggressive attack once the left determines "the next offensive thought/product/fact/ ----- to condemn; and rest assured there WILL be something else in the not so distant future!!

    Just like Haley's decision to lower the stars & bars one last time in SC, I didn't like that decision either.

    My REAL problem with both cases though,is not what they did, BUT the reason and timing for the action. Had either of these decisions occurred absent any "racial crisis", I still would not agree, but I could accept it as a reasoned decision - as it is now, it is nothing more than a "bargaining with terrorists" situation. Considering that the flag is plentiful in the Charleston area, and considering the response of the community to the church, victims & families, IT SHOULD BE EXTREMELY OBVIOUS to all that the flag basically holds NO racial denigration; well, except to those who are the left's lemmings and the race baiters.
    But then again, common sense is all but dead today.

    As a nation, thanks to liberal policies (R & D), we are one great big humongous wuss!!!!!!!!!!

    Jesus, please hurry back; I'm ready to go home!!

    Or maybe the confederate flags weren't selling up to expectations.
