Given Walmart's history and dealings with their employees I would have thought that cockroaches would have been more appropriate.

I'm sure that Wal Mart has cheaper bedbugs than anyone else does!

Maybe they can re-package and spin the entire thing to their advantage - "you thought our formaldehyde-coated bedding (and pet food and children's clothing) were something? how does NOW COMES WITH FREE BEDBUGS! sound to you?!?!?".

It's capitalism. Anything can happen. :lol:

Yea, except they have Chinese bedbugs. Quit selling domestic ones in the '80's.

Yeah the police!!! Thats who you call when felonies are being committed. It can cost thousands of dollars to get rid of a bedbug infestation. That makes it a felony. Plus all the thousands if not hundreds of thousands that the store loses while it is shut down to get rid of the bedbugs. How many poor people that shop at Wallmart brought bedbugs to their homes? Poor people who cannot afford the high cost of removing a bedbug infestation. So yeah someone intentionally causing a bedbug infestation IS a bad guy. A VERY BAD GUY!!! MUCH, MUCH more so than someone smoking a plant, growing a plant, selling a plant, possessing a plant, possessing paraphernalia to smoke a plant, sticking powder up their nose, drinking in public, gambling, etc., etc.

None of those victimless crimes is taking any money out of YOUR checkbook. Yet those are the ones that law enforcement spend the most time on as it leads to the most money for them in asset forfeiture. Someone next door to you smoking a joint, snorting some blow, or betting on next weeks football games is not bothering you at all. Someone affecting your health through disease ridden bugs drinking you and your families blood on a nightly basis, and affecting your finances through outrageous extermination fees IS bothering you.

You are always stating that you get it. Well do you?

It should have been obvious when he claimed the Earth is flat, that he doesn't. Probably never will.

You hire three cockroaches. Two to hold the bedbug down and one to tattoo the bar code on.

You're welcome. :wink:

+5 inbound. Minor jokes aside this is not a victimless crime.

True. It is actually a very serious problem that can have far-reaching affects.
