That corporation everyone loves to hate is at it again

Yep, I'm referring to WalMart. And yes, I've had a habit in the past of leaving out the hypen in their name. I guess that's how it's supposed to be, although I wasn't really aware of that, and I really don't give a rat's arse.

Anywhoo, the following should be common knowledge by now for those who have followed some of the criticism hurled at the corporate giant:

* WalMart has no qualms whatsoever with colluding with various governments to promote their interests.
* WalMart has no qualms whatsoever with holding others' property rights in contempt.

Their latest target: land that is sacred in the eyes of the aboriginal S'Amuna people of Canada, land that should be rightfully theirs.

Thanks to Eugene Plawiuk for drawing my attention to the matter with this post and the sidebar button visible below and in my sidebar. Thanks also to Meaghan Walker for her extensive writing on the subject.

Like with John Bolton, this is one issue that I am torn on.

The socialist/statist Left's crusade against Wal-Mart makes me want to like it.

The traditionalist conservative concerns, regarding its practices, and its effect on the social structure of communities, makes we worried.

I don't know what to do about this one.

For now, the 24-hour and low-price thing is just what I need, for those emergency situations that keep arising...
