In regards to opebo:

He was banned?

That's unfortunate. He was a terrible human being but that shouldn't be grounds for banning.

Also I don't know who in Madison is mooching. It is a very prosperous, well-educated, and wealthy city.

Basically, to him, most any Democratic consitituency is to be labeled "freeloaders" or "moochers." 'Very trite, really. Krazen reminds me a lot of David Duke in this regard.

People would take him much more seriously if he did without the unnecesarry and hateful epithets.

I strongly doubt the world will end in the next ten years. But if it did, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the turning point was the day a bunch of dinguses on an Internet message board pushed a man who can cannot successfully run his own life into a position running one of the largest companies in America

There is basically no reason at all to support the US in this war unless you're a brainless jingoistic moron who supports the US in every single conflict regardless of morality.

Everyone here thinks having Bushie in a management position would be a good idea. Huh.

I'm kind of torn. On the one hand, it's Wal-Mart, so yeah they deserve him. On the other hand I'd feel for the minimum wage working stiffs under him.

It wouldn't surprise me if politicians started holding campaign rallies in Wal-Mart parking lots.

This would be great because it would inevitably cause a hilarious calamity

Walmart vigorously prohibits anything from ever happening in their parking lots except for A) parking and B) things that are specifically and explicitly approved by the store manager in advance. This strict rule lets them shoo away union stuff at the first hint of trouble and keeps potential picket lines on the far side of those giantass parking lots, except with enough vagueness that they can't claim it's specifically to target unions.

There's a 24/7 "labor relations" hotline that a store is supposed to call when anything union related happens (my computer training told me it should be called like literally any time I ever heard someone say the word "union" on the premises).

If a campaign event was happening but the shift manager forgot it had been scheduled, then saw the campaign placards from a distance and mistook them for picket signs, then it's entirely plausible State Senator whats-his-face would find his campaign event being forcibly broken up by modern-day Pinkertons

What would happen if I showed up and paraded around the store waving red banners and singing "The Internationale" at the top of my lungs?

A couple months ago I saw a band play in Moorhead. During the set they announced that one of their goals as a band is to play all 50 states, or at least the continuous 48 at some point. But unfortunately the show in Fargo fell through, and though they were able to reschedule on the same date here, it's technically not North Dakota. So to get ND checked off the list, they were going to meet in a Wal-Mart parking lot across the river around midnight and play a couple acoustic songs.

Unfortunately because of time constraints I couldn't make it, but I wonder what exactly happened and if anyone at Wal-Mart cared. I should ask BK what would happen if a bunch of people who look like the people who go to the same shows as me ever congregated in a Wal-Mart parking lot after midnight.

Hearing this stuff makes me happy to live in a Wal-Mart blackhole. I used to make a big deal out of boycotting Wal-Mart, but that's kind of pointless now, since it's not convenient for me to shop there anyway: http://www.walmart.com/store/finder?location=55404

Note not just the lack in Minneapolis, but that area to the west of it too. That area is full of people who 1-don't shop at Wal-Mart and 2-probably consider shopping at Wal-Mart beneath them, even if Republicans. This is especially noticable in the immediate SW suburbs, most notably Edina and St. Louis Park, which have a very rich feel to them, but not in trashy giant McMansion way. Think tons of luxury apartments and expensive jewelry and fashion stores. Rich Democrat land basically, probably the people most likely to find Wal-Mart repulsive.

Rich Democrats, despite being rich, tend to have many very good qualities. 

And congrats on living no where near a Wal-Mart.  I often am forced to drive by them and notice the packed parking lots out of my peripheral.  It's like watching a puppy burn to death.  Very unpleasant. 

Not even necessarily rich which might be why they end up look more classy than a different type of trashy, think of a DINK couple where each one makes ~$40k. Unquestionably middle class, but lots of money to throw around regardless. The real rich Democrat land is in certain parts of SW Minneapolis which is fully century-old real mansions, not gaudy McMansions.

Yeah the only one I ever see is the one in St. Paul, and that one doesn't get lots of business. The parking lot is never packed. I even heard it almost closed a couple years ago but narrowly survived, the one in St. Anthony (immediate suburb just NE of Minneapolis) didn't though.

What's even more funny about that is that's it's in a location that's commercial but mostly independent small businesses (but not the types that get killed by Wal-Mart, think bookstores and esoteric arts and crafts places), making the Wal-Mart all the more an eyesore and out of place.

The Equalizer

Not what I expected at all, and I mean that in a very good way. Antoine Fuqua has proven himself to be a very capable action director many times and that's what I was expecting here. But this is not along the lines of Olympus Has Fallen or any other film he's done, it's a very slow moving and artsy type of action movie, think Drive. FYI it's just as graphically violent as well. For a movie based on a cult 80s show, though with virtually nothing in common aside from the protagonist's name, it was a big surprise.

Here's an example: http://www.prismresearchinc.com/about-us/studies/#/?study=study1415

It requires basically to be locked in on site for over a week, but after that just 9 1-2 hour visits, and it pays almost $3000!

But of course Bushie wouldn't meet the BMI requirements. Didn't consider that. Of course I'm sure there's plenty of studies requiring obese subjects.
