from Townhall. Guy Benson offers a very interesting item… My view on this story, confirms people in DC are nuts, though I did not need further verification of that fact, this is just additional confirmation.
What is the horror they are protesting about (now)? An intrusion that might offer jobs and affordable products.. a Wal-Mart. How do they intend to handle it? By intruding on the privacy of the developer, at his own personal residence!
Note the flier… has a target on a happy face (Wal-Mart uses to highlight low prices & happy customers).. basically this could be viewed as a threat, and these protestors should be arrested!
Their issues? They think Wal-Mart will increase their high unemployment, quick someone get them to a math class! They think Wal-Mart will eliminate retail jobs? How would they manage that, by hiring those people? So how is that increasing unemployment? This sounds like there would be more job openings. The are fighting against low wages & poor benefits.. hum with around 10% unemployment in DC, I guess that means these people would have to give up unemployment benefits and work?.. see that is the real issue! They fear Wal-Mart will kill small businesses, of course because they will be held by gun-point to shop at Wal-Mart.
(In my head, I am now flashing to the South Park Wal-Mart episode, the kids explained to the parents they can kill Wal-Mart by not shopping there, the parents in a zombie-like state explain they are drawn to the low prices.. and near the end the one kid’s father ends up working there, for the discounts!).
Now the REAL reason? It is on the flier, see if you can find it.. Wal-Mart supports “right-wing” candidates.. oh no! What will become of DC? Might they get their heads out of their asses for a change, and see the light of day? Will they suffer the horror of listening to non-Liberal viewpoints? Is this the fall of Liberal society?
and just for fun Guy Benson included an unemployment graph at the bottom of his page.. I am including it too. This truly illustrates the problem.. Note 2008, what even happened at the end of 2008? Yes unemployment was on a rise before he entered the white-house, but you can see it peaked a year later! It went down, but DC has seen the highest unemployment since Obama became president. And yet these idiots in DC resist the Right? They resist a chance to have jobs, vs welfare? Can someone sift the logic out of that pile of poo for me!?
