WalMart take two

I have a second theory about WalMart. One's political viewpoint can be more or less placed by one's opinion of WalMart.

Left: Wal-Mart evil, exploits workers as can easily be determined by their making less than $10/hour, kills local businesses. You see them mounting the anti-big-box legislation, which I can't quite believe is not a put-up job by Wal-Mart's competitors.

Right: Wal-Mart good, creates jobs, productivity king, sells guns but not that naughty Maxim. Needs to start buying American again.

Apathetic Center: "A gallon of pickles for $2.97? Get me in on that."

Libertarians ought to like it since it managed to grow its way up without any government handouts and has refrained from lobbying after it got big. Pretty rare. It does lay a heavy hand on local governments though.

Frontline has an interesting program on Walmart that can be watched online. It says that Walmart is basically evil, but they do have a couple quotations that say Walmart has improved the buying power of the dollar.
