    But not really...
    I know, huh? Seems pretty foolish to want to keep chipping away at rights.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    I know. That's why I didn't vote for Romney, or Bush before that.



    Or Obama for that matter.

    It's good to know DC has enough of a glut of available jobs that they can afford to lose the Walmart jobs, not to mention the jobs at other stores that always crop up around Walmart.

    D.C. Council approves ‘living wage’ bill over Wal-Mart ultimatum

    “The question here is a living wage; it’s not whether Wal-Mart comes or stays,” said council member Vincent B. Orange (D-At Large), a lead backer of the legislation, who added that the city did not need to kowtow to threats. “We’re at a point where we don’t need retailers. Retailers need us.”
    “We’re at a point where we don’t need retailers. Retailers need us." This is a statement by a government official talking about the private sector. Quite alarming, spoken like a true dictator. Not much else you need to know about Washington and the mindset there.

    If you are working for walmart then you are still standing by the mailbox.


    Well then, don't work for Walmart. Or, like others who don't stand around in life wondering what happened, work for two Walmarts until something better can come along.

    Life isn't really that difficult for those who can think.

    if i was Walmart i would say the hell with DC and go places where people appreciate the jobs and the low prices
    Low prices, low wage employees, and replaceable jobs - this is what the Founders thought of when they argued in favor of free enterprise.

    That is reality. We don't need more retail. There is more than enough. Retail needs us we don't need them.
