Hmm. I suspect that's because Wal-Mart takes care of Sams Clubbers on a day to day basis, whereas Target doesn't perform that function as well for Costco goers.

Store locations and demographics are way different as well. But mostly I think this shows that Costco shoppers aren't as frugal as Scams Clubbers. If they were, they wouldn't need to make that extra half trip a month to buy bulk toilet paper and raisins by the case.

You may be right but I don't want to underestimate the role of bad publicity, shoddy products, and employee dissatisfaction. Remember, their labor pool is also their customer base and word gets around. Given an option a lot of people would go somewhere else. That's why WM woks so hard eliminating competition in the area of its stores.

God but I hope you're right. Lately a lot of blogs are doing "who's the worst president ever" posts and the comments from wingnuts are all Jimmy Carter all the time.

It's hard for me to credit Reagan Demcrats with having a brain when they keep thinking all this economic meltdown still has its roots in four years of Carternomics.

  • "[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."


  • "True religion will not let us fall asleep in the comfort of our freedom. Love thy neighbor is not a piece of advice, it's a command. ...

    God, my friends, is with the poor and God is with us, if we are with them. This is not a burden, this is an adventure."

  • Ray wasn't singing about what he knew, 'cause Ray had been blind since he was a child. He hadn't seen many purple mountains. He hadn't seen many fruited plains. He was singing about what he believed to be.

    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.


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. 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.''
