Just Say "No" To Lower Prices !

From Moonbattery, on a recent effort in Washington D.C. to open a Wal-Mart:

Moonbats will never forgive Walmart for proving how effective capitalism is at providing people the goods they need at a price they can afford while creating needed jobs and avoiding unionization. The intimidation tactics are exactly what you would expect of a nascent socialist police state. Obama's SEIU/ACORN friends have made targeting private homes a specialty.

Here's the flyer used to publicize the protest....

Full Disclosure: I work for a Wal-Mart supplier. 

More Disclosure: We supply all the other major grocery chains.

Disclosure Of The Obvious: If the developer purchased the land and wants to lease some of it to Wal-Mart, it is nobody's business except the developer's and Wal-Mart's.  If you don't like Wal-Mart, don't shop there.  That's the difference between the U.S. and a Worker's Paradise like Cuba or North Korea. 

Disclosure Of An Inspired Idea: Libertarians and economic conservatives should spend more time marching and protesting at the homes of, say, lobbyists, politicians, and regulators. 

Disclosure Of The Rejection Of This Idea:  Dammit, we're not in unions.  So we can't get paid to protest.  We gotta work. 

Disclosure Of Laziness On My Part:  I don't have time to list all the occasions where unions have been busted for hiring substitute protesters and paying them the absolute minimum wage.  (That link'll take you to a Great Jon Stewart/Daily Show piece, BTW.)   In the meantime, enjoy this:

Disclosure Of My Priorities For The Rest Of The Day: Gonna go ship some produce displays to Wal-Mart, and I hope they're headed to Washington D.C.

Wait long enough and a Barneys New York will spontaneously erect itself on the lot.
