You see Ron, the problem here is that I said starting a flame war about
Walmart vs Target would be fun. Flame wars do not involve logic or
using specific examples to back up your ideas, they involve crass
generalizations and making comments about your opponents hygine and
other personnal things.

Please Ron, don't you see that dressing your children up in Walmart
clothes is just condemming them to a life of living in trailer parks and
speaking with a drawl. Do you really want your kids watching stock car
racing and the Nashville Network when they grow up. Think what you are
doing to your children!

And your mother dresses you funny too.
