It's Time To Nuke Wal-Mart

They are at it again.  Lowering prices and destroying people's lives.  It's tme to nuke Wal-Mart.

New "research" shows that when a Wal-Mart Supercenter moves into an area, the people of that region start gaining weight, contributing, of course, to the American obesity problem.  "Women, low-income families and people living in less densely populated areas" (the study tells us) are especially victims.  And then we have this horrifying piece of news:  "'It's not just about Wal-Mart underselling the competitor. It's about the competitors cutting their prices in response to competition from Wal-Mart,' University of North Carolina economist Charles Courtemanche, a co-author of the study [said]. "Someone might never step foot in a Wal-Mart, but they still might pay less for their food.'"  (Wal-Mart also sells video games and this contributes to the problem, too, because people are playing those games and not getting any exercise.)

This is terrible.  People are actually paying less for their food--everywhere--when a Wal-Mart moves in, and they are getting fat because of it.  I'm especially concerned about those "low-income families."  Poor people are buying too much food!  Can't have that, can we.

But, wait a minute.  What about all this hunger we hear about in America?  Sounds to me like the best way to combat hunger would be to move a Wal-Mart Supercenter into town so people can afford to buy stuff.  But that's not the way it's supposed to work, not in the liberal mindset.

The problem here, of course, is that capitalism is working (it always does), and that's the main reason these liberal eggheads hate Wal-Mart.  If people shop at Wal-Mart, they save money.  That means they have more money to spend on other things.  That means they have more freedom, which is the one thing a liberal canNOT stand, because if people have freedom, then they don't need leftist elites to tell them how to live.  It's all about power and control to liberals, folks.  It's why the family and the church are their most two hated institutions--they can't control either one.  And they can't control people shopping at Wal-Mart and saving money, either.  Well, they are trying to, doing everything they can to find a dark lining around a wonderfully shining cloud--lower prices everywhere because of Wal-Mart.  So, Wal-Mart moves in, people can buy more, they get fat, and the world is coming to an end.  You almost have to laugh at the utter arrogance of the left.  But always remember, reader, to a liberal, it's about control--they want to control your lives because they think you are too stupid to do it yourself.  And they want the power, through government, to have that control.  It's the most frightening thing on earth, the 20th century being solid, irrefutable testimony to that fact.

Of course, according to my dearly beloved and departed father, folks who shop at Wal-Mart are stupid anyway because the store rips everybody off.  People haven't got sense enough to shop somewhere else and spend more money for the same things they can get at Wal-Mart.  Morons...

If you agree with that study about Wal-Mart, if it makes any sense to you at all, then you are a classic example of a modern liberal elitist because attacking capitalism and destroying people's freedom to choose is a fundamental precept of post-19th century liberalism.  But you'd better stay out of MY life because I like to save to money and enjoy my freedom.  And if I want to eat junk, get fat, and die young, it's none of your business!
