Onliners tend to be more choosy and better informed. Which is probably why WM has been doing the massive advertising push, trying to counter the negative image that's caused by the truth.

PR = Anti-Truth, after all. The Billionaire Benton-Heirs can buy everything, including the truth. Next week, they're buying God.

Next week, they're buying God.

At a discount, no doubt.

Fascinating. It's not for lack of trying. I checked out walmart.com after reading your post, and I thought it would be really cluttered and disorganized. (I found it to be so a long, long time ago when I was working for a comparison-shopping dot.com.) But, as far as e-commerce goes, the site isn't half bad. That goes to show that if Wal-Mart's business practices weren't so nefarious, then maybe they might be worth shopping. They're just shooting themselves in the foot.

They did really well over the Thanksgiving weekend with their etail sales. Amazon, eBay and WalMart topped the list.


the gang at walmart is a favorite target of a lot of folks (please pardon the pun) but, what is facinating is that they are trying to play on the "experience" field. This is turf that Target OWNS. Walmart.com is a good site. Their "best customers" aren't shopping for their stuff yet on it. It will be a battle between these two titans, as walmart looks to upscale its offerings... and target looks to drive more value out of its experience. We should know after the holidays where these two stand.

Note however that neither of these two are in the just out internet retailer best of the web for 2005

I read an article over Tgiving weekend (I'm driving the thanks out of Thanksgiving) that said that Amazon, eBay and WalMart were the top sites visited over the holiday. What continues to fascinate me is how Wall St. refuses to report on CostCo.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
