My WalMart revelationSubmitted by wd4freedom on Mon, 09/07/2009 - 09:05
During my morning walk it occurred to me what WalMart stands for and how its influence over the last thirty plus years has affected our nation. (I grew up in the age of Walmart)
For me WalMart is the:
Common Denominated Solution of Cheap Crap : CDSOCC
I have decided to call it the CDSOCC (pronounced 'sidsock') phenomena
It has turned our nation into a throw away culture and it has permeated every aspect of our lives. I do not know however if Wal Mart started the culture or if Wal Mart is just reflecting back to us what our culture has become.
But during my lifetime I have seen almost every aspect of our society becoming CDSOCC 'like'. It has affected our auto industry, our housing and construction industry, our roads, our schools, our children, our marriages and now our government.
We live with an attitude where we buy on the cheap, knowing the crap won't last, and then we throw it away when it breaks. Our society and Wal Mart have become the CDSOCC of our time.
