Walmart again. Walmart always.

Walmart runs this show and makes no bones about it. As Evan Derkacz reports on Alternet:

Always for sale, always
"Wal-Mart shows who owns our Government," writes David. "Maryland Gov. Bob Ehrlich (R) yesterday vetoed legislation aimed at forcing Wal-Mart to provide its workers with more adequate benefits. That wasn't a surprise...What is shocking, however, is how open he was about acknowledging that Big Business pulls all of the strings when it comes to public policy. As the LA Times notes, 'Eduardo Castro-Wright, chief operating officer of Wal-Mart stores USA division, stood at the Republican governor's side as he signed the official veto.'"

How shameless can these people get? Thought for the day: do not shop at Walmart. Or here is a better idea:

Take several pieces of clothing into a Walmart dressing room. Wait a few minutes and then yell at the top of your lungs: HEY, THERE'S NO TOILET PAPER IN HERE!!!!!!!!

That would be fun.
