True. However, what other retailer can you name that sends such a staggering amount of business to China?

None. 'Kay.

You should try reading a post not reading INTO a post. I never suggested that we not purchase Chinese goods, that would be virtually impossible, I simply suggested avoiding Walmart. Walmart purchases nearly 10% of China's exports... that is staggering. "Feeding the Walmart monster" is far from the end of the world, the collapse of the American Dollar is far from the end of the world, the vacuum of outsourced goods leading to American job cuts is far from the end of the world... but they are going to have a devastating impact. They are inherently tied together and the sooner you, claiming to be world-wise, realize that the better. Consider yourself counted among the people who put us in this recession. Too cowardly to think about your actions, too cheap to spend extra and take your business elsewhere.

I've accepted that China is a world power despite your stupid assumptions to the contrary, I have not accepted that I will have any hand in bringing about a deeper recession as American jobs are shipped overseas to feed cheaper labor to support Walmart, I will not shop at a store that pays their employees sub-standard wages with no benefits.

Get over your assumptions and actually read someone's post junior.
