If you are offended by the Home Depot flyer, go to Lowes. Feel that Ronald McDonald is a twitt, go across the street to Burger King. This could go on for page after page. Point is there are choices in life, just make one based on your preferences. But don't wish away the jobs of the McDonalds folks or the Home Depot crew just because it's not your choice.
I would not consider myself a Formula buyer, my choice! But I feel that it was unfortunate that so many have been laid off there as well. Nor am I sitting here hoping that the entire Porter family ends up in a soup kitchen in rags. But I do own a bisuness and have taken jobs over the years at very low or no profit to myself just to provide the work for my subcontractors. Too many of those deals would put me under as well, I've just been lucky enough to come back into better times and move on. I get a kick out of some of those on here that are so quick to judge decisions made by a business owner when they have no clue what is involved in walking in those shoes.
