WALMART I HATE YOU

After spending a billion dollars for my home theater system now walmart is almost giving them away as cheap as toasters. It used to be that snobs like me were the elite few now walefare folks are getting them for xmas. But thinking back when you saw someone with a 200 lb cell phone they would be the coolest person on the planet now they are just anoying even babies own one. then there are car alarms back when they came out you only saw them on custom pricy cars now you hear them going of on $300 clunkers I HATE PROGRESS. but I have seen those $300 cheapes on display and some of you praise the picture quality. I hate to say it but I would go blind trying to watch it in closing Picking up my new blue ray tomorrow must be ahead of the game but I know next year they will be selling for $29.95 happy shopping walmart folks rub my nose in it ha ha hasteweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Ah, come on Stewee, WallyWorld is your home away from home

In reply to: WALMART I HATE YOU

Besides, don't worry about all the cheap crap they sell passing for home theater.

A close friend made home visits a few years ago to establish needs of people "on the dole" for a charity organization she belonged to. It opened her eyes. Their homes had to be marginal to keep on assistance & cars not allowed to be too valuable either.

However when she saw these folks' homes warm as toast when the middle class kept those thermostats down to save heating bills & then the biggie, they all had big screen rear projection TVs way before those who watched the budget considered splurging for them - that was it. She told the club to take it easy, don't sweat it - the needs were largely misplaced. Those folks spent freely for alcohol & tobacco, so just let it go.

Yes, there is always some real, extreme & desparate need. Give to the organizations ready to deal with that. Often church-related, they need your help; not institutional takers.

Why not drop a 20 in the pot on the way past?

Why not Wal-mart???

In reply to: WALMART I HATE YOU

After dropping 3grr. on my new 46" LCD. My wife and I decided to purchase another HDTV for another room in the house. I really don't need all the bells and whistles this time around nor do I need that big a display. The first place I looked was Wal-mart. Good prices for the very basic seconday set.

Annoying

In reply to: Why not Wal-mart???

Here is something annoying..... Stewart Norrie putting "Steweeeeee" at the end of all his posts. Not sure if it's a Family Guy thing, which by the way, is a ridiculously hilarious show if you get most of the references. Sorry STEWART!! Just post and end it. Have a great day!

Stewee, chill out....

In reply to: ANOTHER FUNNY STORY FROM STEWART IAM CURED.

Do yourself a favor and quit going to Walmart. It will keep your blood pressure in check. Look at it this way: You look down at those people who shop at Walmart for HT systems, but keep in mind that there are people who buy extremely high-end HT components and who look down at those people who shop at Magnolia and the other places that you go to. It's all relative my friend. Just enjoy what you have and be thankful that Walmart isn't "high-end" for you. Go out and buy some funny holiday movies. What's your favorite. I've always like "A Christmas Story", but lately I've got a new traditional X-Mas movie: "Jingle All The Way" starring Arnold and Sinbad. It's stupid but it's funny too.

ITS ALL XMAS FUN

In reply to: Stewee, chill out....

Iam a wannbe rich guy. Live on a little social security and thats it , I spent my small savings on a 97 Cadillac Eldorado , doggie and home theater that I prize And yes I put a bag over my head when I shop at wal-mart ha ha not really But as Jonny Carson said I shop at wal-mart because I feel Iam the best looking guy that goes there. besides it feels great to be a phony In closing you should see my piece of crap 30 year old mobil home its a mess but when you go into my home theater room you would think you were in a movie palace. The only reason I make fun of folks that buy there hi-def sets at walmart is that for a few bucks more they could buy a brand name set with good factory service and picture quality that would blow those off brand set away

Surprisingly found http://www.opentip.com/christmas_holiday/holiday.html

I bought some wristbands and yoga kit a few days ago, which seems quite good and reasonable.
