A pasty faced loser with an Internet connection is protecting us all from the crusading hordes of brown skinned people who wish to run rampant over our superior society.

Don’t be fooled by the rhetorical crap spewing forth from orificial Wal-Mart sources.

Bemoaning the low Florida unemployment rate, the proudly conservative Tampa Tribune offers some unsolicited advice to those poor business owners who just can’t seem to find anyone to fill their underpaid, overworked, benefit-free positions. Not surprisingly, neither fair wages nor finding someplace other than the newspaper’s classified section in which to advertise are mentioned as [...]

Ybor Wal-Mart deal collapses

I don’t like Wal-Mart . They’re union-busting peddlers of cheap, plastic shit manufactured in third world sweat shops.

The headline implies that Wal-Mart is giving $5 million to a local hospital, but its worth reading the article to find some interesting details.
