    It is so funny, our own government, the people we elect trying to keep us from buying drugs cheaper from outside the US, so American Companies can make a LARGER profit nothing else.

      Didn't you hear how much the drug companies donate to the politicians?

      It's called not biting the hand that feeds you.

        And they wonder why Kerry called them crooks.

          well...democrats are just as guilty....but the reality is, we're the only industrialized country that doesn't have price controls, and the pharmacutical industry is the only one that our government can't negotiate prices with.

              and the figures were telling....they spend less on R&D than they do on advertising....so...if they take a hit on their artificial profits...it's not going to stop the next cure for cancer

                there is a great article in the St. Louis Business Journal about how the fucked up republican perscription drug bill is going to cripple cancer care....have fun reading that. They quote SLU doctors and john dipersio and bob Barczewski from wash u, who are on the forefront of the research and financing of cancer treatment, respectively.

                  Oh it's NEVER going to stop a cure for ANYTHING, they would make money off of that too.
                  It's a joke.

                    A key point made was that most of these drugs--they mentioned Lipitor, as an example-- are manufactured in foreign countries, anyway! Wouldn't it be reasonable to assume that the tablets shipped to Canada would be of the same quality as those shipped to the US?

                    What a crock!
                    Norman Chad, syndicated columnist: “Sports radio, reflecting our sinking culture, spends entire days advising managers and coaches, berating managers and coaches, firing managers and coaches and searching the countryside for better middle relievers. If they just redirected their energy toward, say, crosswalk-signal maintenance, America would be 2 percent more livable.”

                    "The best argument against democracy," someone (Churchill?) said, "is a five minute conversation with the average voter."

                        3 out of 4 is not bad...

                        I have no beef with Wal-Mart...great stock performance over the mid and long-term...I would highly recommend it...but, the P/E is a little high now...let it cool off and pick it up..

                          Walmart's just thirsting to tap the Chinese market, you can be sure of that. Any Wally World's yet in Shanghai, Wangster?

                            Wal-mart has procurement offices all over China...actually, I think that China must be the largest source of procured products in the Wal-Mart portfolio..

                            and if you buy a stuffed animal from Wal-mart..and it was made in China... because that came right out of my factory.

                            I, for one, think Wal-Mart is a god send...but, I dont like paying high prices for commodities...but, that's just me.

                            As to Wal-Marts in China...they are on an agressive growth campaign...adding about 10-15 stores/year..with some being Sam's Clubs and some being Wal-Mart Super Centres...

                            The people here love it...who does not like paying low prices??

                            Wal-Mart stock...buy!buy!buy!
