    Exactly. This isn't about the workers- it's a deliberate effort to unfairly target Wal-Mart and keep it out of the District by angry unions and anti-Wally World leftists.

    Wal Mart may have a number of very flawed corporate practices, but the District, with its high unemployment rate and notorious food deserts, is in desperate need of both jobs and grocery stores. Bad move overall.

    You really don't understand the food desert, do you? Really. Wow.

    That's not what you said. You said "you guys" to me, and I'm "colored". So obviously you meant colored people are stupid. Shame on you.

    What else are you? Male? So I meant men are stupid? You're from DC Metro. So I meant you DC Metro people are stupid? If you're a father and husband, did I mean husbands and fathers are dumb? The irony is that your response makes it very clear who is dumber than a speedbump ... gotta go mac ... You need some fresh air ... get out of that basement, go for a walk ...

    Let us all hope he gets the 2016 GOP nomination for President. Maybe Cruz as the VP if Palin won't run.

    Our system is failing? Just think where we'd be had Bush and the GOP had another four years ... I don't blame you for not thinking about it, it's scary ... I trust you no longer pay taxes, lest you be supporting this system ... If you do, you should stop and thereby engage in an act of civil disobedience ... so, while you do the principled thing and not pay taxes, and then go to prison for tax evasion, I'll work on growing up ... Deal?

    I'm doing all that I can do to make that happen. But I don't think Palin should be VP ... she's a natural for Secretary of Education ... I have Ron, his daddy, as Secretary of State ... one of the Koch brothers for Secretary of Labor ... Santorum for Pope of the United States (a new cabinet position) ... Perry as our ambassador to Texas (Texas seceded, right?) ... Romney as our ambassador to France (I had him for England, but after his disastrous visit there during the Olympics, I changed my mind -- and in any event Mitt can finish his bike trip in France that he started during the War in Vietnam), Limbaugh for Press Secretary, and Bachmann and Beck to head a mental health task force that will begin by examining the two of them ...
