What I think it boils down to alot, is the economy. I myself am not for the building of the walmart. But what I would guess is alot of people are willing to take any kind of discounting or handouts they can get. Theyre are people who are wondering if they will have their house this time next year and hoping they will get their jobs back within that time. For those people who are struggling to that point, I highly doubt they could care about a snake or it's habitat. They are probably more concerned on the tax break and looking at it as a possibility of keeping a roof over their families heads. As far as people supporting Walmart as in shopping there, I still go back to the same point, any savings that people can get, they will just to have that extra dollar to go towards there mortagage or even worse, bankruptcy payment. Please don't take this as I'm supporting Walmart, I just tend to be a little more openminded and can relate were MOST of the pro walmart people are coming from.
They try to make like they're your friend, but really they're an evil empire.
