6 If only you had not transgressed My commandment and had kept My law, and had not eaten of the fruit of the tree which I told you not to come near! And there were fruit trees in the garden better than that one. What are you doing here' I said, 'I'm shopping. What areyou doing' And he said, 'Oh, this is just partof the educational process. That's all.' Of course, he's still doing the same thing today, except he uses hislittle tape recorder."I guess everybody who knew I was going ahead with the discounting idea on my own really did think I'dcompletely lost my mind. I laugh now when I look back on Wal-Mart's beginning. In 1962, the discountindustry was fairly young and full of high-living, big-spending promoters driving around in Cadillacsguyslike Herb Gibsonwho had the world by the tail. But it had very few of what you'd call goodoperatorsuntil 1962, the year which turned out to be the big one for discounting. In that year, fourcompanies that I know of started discount chains. S. S. Kresge, a big, 800-store variety chain, opened adiscount store in Garden City, Michigan, and called it Kmart. F. W. Woolworth, the granddaddy of themall, started its Woolco chain. Dayton-Hudson out of Minneapolis opened its first Target store. And someindependent down in Rogers, Arkansas, opened something called a Wal-Mart. At the time, and for quitea while after that, I can guarantee you that hardly anybody noticed that last guy. Heck, within five years,Kmart had 250 stores to our 19, and sales of more than $800 million to our $9 million. Here's whatmakes me laugh today: it would have been absolutely impossible to convince anybody back then that inthirty years most all of the early discounters would be gone, that three of these four new chains would bethe biggest, best-run operators in the business, that the one to fold up would be Woolco, and that thebiggest, most profitable one would be the one down in Arkansas. Sometimes even I have troublebelieving it. 6 Then the angels commanded Adam and Eve to get up and pray forty days and forty nights; when that was done, then Adam was to have sexual intercourse with his wife; for then this would be an act pure and undefiled; so that he would have children who would multiply, and replenish the face of the earth. "Anyway, today we're making about two and a half million Wal-Mart shirts, and we've gone from 90employees the week Mr. Sam called to 320 today. And we know where it comes from. EveryChristmas, we give our employees Wal-Mart gift certificates."There's no charity at all involved in this program, and, in fact, I'm proud to say that it benefits us atWal-Mart in a very direct way. Every job we save creates another potential Wal-Mart customer who'snot worrying about where his or her next dollar's coming from. They have a job, and we have acustomer. So we all come out ahead. Farris was one of our early success stories, and since then we'veworked out all kinds of Buy American deals with small and large manufacturers, including FieldcrestCannon, 3M, Sunbeam, Mirro Foley, U.S. Electronics, Kentogs, Capital-Mercury, Mr. Coffee, Lasko,and Huffy. 色婷亚洲五月,视频黄页,一及e片全过 This morning, at Peshawur, down come the police on my houseboat鈥攖hree of them鈥攁nd their leader explains matters.
