    The consumer?

    They both sell cheap but fundamentally sound stuff. At lower prices. Wouldnt want to eat there all the time or shop there but they serve a purpose.

    Walmart wins the fight.
    But McDonalds wins the war with heart disease and obesity.

    Mc Donalds is now inside Wal-Mart, is that a loss for Mc D's or Wally World?

    Wal-Mart has the "inner power" and even has a true form.

    Well, by South Park standards anyway.

    Well Wal-Mart is also called Wally World, and everyone loves it. I don't think there's even been any serious problems with Wal-Mart and I believe they put K-Mart out of buisiness in some areas. I think the real battle would be between Wal-Mart and Target.

    Wal-mart frowns upon unionized labor and doesn't provide adequate health care and benifits for their employees. They're exploitative. At least, Mcdonalds lets up indulge in our own gluttony, but Walmart leaves no room for competition at all. How can one store be allowed to sell EVERYTHING! That's nuts! But at the very least provide adaquate wages to the people who can not otherwise compete or have nowhere else to work. But noooo, exploitation rules the day. :rolleyes:

    no but seriously, I've personally boycotted WalMart and McDonalds for quite awhile. Lets hope they both destroy eachother and local businesses flourish.

    Ok, kind of an over-simplification. Fact is, a lot of "local businesses" don't provide health-care either. Unions are not always a good thing. Small businesses charge a lot more and often have poor service. Any why can't a store sell everything it wants? Their risk, not the consumer.

    Adequate wages? Says who? THose jobs wouldn't exist but for Wal-Mart. It's more complicated then you think. Exploitation? Heh, Walmart makes a very small profit given its size and here's the reality: people shop there because it is better and cheaper than the mom and pops.

    It's a kind of enemy fraternization, like Russia selling the US chromium during the Cold War.

    What kind of Spot Check do you have to roll to notice a parked Autobot?

    Yeah but McDonalds has a MUCH higher percentage of returns compared to their Revenue. I'd say that balances things.
