Wal-Mart is appreciated by those on a tight budget

I am sure that both Jesus and MLK would have enjoyed a good bargain. Perhaps Jeffrey Starkweather is a millionaire Republican and can afford over priced items in a store. I am a person who lives on Social Security and a small pension who has to watch every penny I spend. After all a can of Campbell soup is the same can regardless of where you buy it, as are most other name brand items in Wal-Mart.

As to Wal-Mart's disability practice Jeffrey should go to the Silver City store and be greeted by the two handicapped door greeters who always have a smile on their faces and ask how I am doing as I wheel my scooter in the door.
