I think this is a great idea, hogeye.

However, I'm not "out of the box" as much as joe2baba would like, so am unable to suggest the next step.

How do you get a Walmart to start doing something like that?

sam

the way to appeal to a corporation like walmart is the same ol same ol ..........show them how to make money or save money, which is the same thing. this is in direct opposition to government which looks for ways to spend money ...........our money.

corporations are somewhat responsible to shareholders. the government is no longer responsible to the people. anybody out there a shareholder in the federal reserve?

joe

i dont think i was too far out of the box sam

Thinking out of the box is fun, huh? Too bad it will never happen, just another example of mental gymnastics.

Hmmmmmmm, now I sound like you Joe!

On the surface, you're right. Now, the hard part. How do you get close enough to the Walmart power structure in order to convince them that this is a viable option for making money?

(maybe you'll have to crawl further out of the box, joe)
