My Love/Hate Relationship with Walmart

Walmart: Aisle after aisle with literally tons of good things of almost every variety… and most at a reasonable cost. Walmart has it all. Or, does it? I’ve completed my shopping. I’ve worked all day. I’m tired. I trudge with a wayward third-wheel shopping cart (I always seem to get the bad one) to the […]

First, permit me to clarify some important aspects as to why I have become known as “The Nite Ranter.”  As “The Nite Ranter,” I am simply what I consider to be a normal middle-class American… probably a lot like yourself… who decided to take his ranting(s) to the next level. Why? Tweet
