Walmart - My new Enemy

Of course the fact that the philosophy that underlies this "shared responsibility" creates contradictory requirements and that demands that no one follow it explicitly, indeed that no one can follow it explicitly which would out of necessity lead to Kelly being imprisoned for being non-contradictory. :)

Well, I just switched to Costco. I *just* renewed my Sam's membership not a week ago and I'd be greatly surprised if they will refund my money if I tell them I want to cancel it.

Walmart is the closest grocery store to where I live, in fact it is the *two* closest stores to where I live, other than a Safeway which is so damned expensive (to say nothing of their asinine "card" program, which only adds to the costs--wow, I get to pay them to collect data on everything I buy so they can target advertising at me!) I am better off driving ten more miles. Nevertheless, I am going to look into SuperTarget.

Obviously Kelly is not going to get satisfaction complaining to WalMart; they've made their policy and all of the drones at headquarters are going to stick with it.

A boycott of Walmart could work. The problem is to gather enough people. I'd suggest emailing several of the more influential conservative blogs and try to rally them. This is the kind of thing Michelle Malkin should jump on with both feet. If anyone has the time and inclination to such a thing, that is. I lack the time.

The only reason Wally World is doing this is so that we will pick up the cost of healthcare benefits for them. It will be cheaper on their bottom line, short term. Of course, after the free-market, such as is left, is destroyed, they will rue their compliancy in this Marxist-Socialist debacle. Too late, naturally.

Here's just a suggestion for you:

Ha ha! I love it! I'm hoping to have time over the weekend to pen an open letter to Walmart and submit it to my local newspaper. Perhaps I'll incorporate some of this. :)

...and I'd be greatly surprised if they will refund my money if I tell them I want to cancel it.

Well, did they?

I like D'kian's idea. Maybe I'll submit my open letter to Walmart to her as well as my local newspaper.

Go for it. Malkin's been posting almost daily against healthcare "reform." She's also quite an effective propagandist with a popular blog and a syndicated column. BTW she's blogged about it:

Is that what you are, a monster who is holding a gun to the head of the hard working father who is trying to find the cure for his child, taking away his job and driving his employer out of the country? That little girl is dying, and you are responsible Jill, look at your hands holding that gun to the father's head, your friends putting handcuffs on his hands, as he is struggling to save his suffering child. How does it feel to kill a child, Jill?

As hilariously over-the-top as this scenario is, it's not too far off the mark from what drones like Jill actually want deep down: association with (or becoming) an amorphous, omnipotent entity unbound by the limitations of reality that decides who lives or dies through the power of wish-fulfillment.

They would just rationalize that the father is a selfish, anti-social misfit unjustly hoarding medicine that belongs to the whole of the tribe but to none of its members.
