Who does; boycott Wal-Mart?

From:  National Review Online

 

Who does boycott Wal-Mart … Really?  It may be, in small numbers, people duped by the educated that will never set foot in a Wal-Mart or similar retail establishment.  If you buy the unions’ tales and the professionally produced picket signs of others aligned with them, it is the poor and downtrodden, forced as slaves might be, to work their fingers to the bone with no hope of reasonable salaries or “upward-mobility.”

The truth is far from the stories told by those who favor closing Wal-Marts over seeing the middle-class and the poor have the opportunity to purchase food, clothing and other needs at prices they can afford.

We invite you to read the following and then chase the posted the link for the rest of the story:

Who Boycotts Wal-Mart?
Social-justice warriors who are too enlightened to let their poor neighbors pay lower prices.

(Gilles Mingasson/Getty)
Kevin D. Williamson

Columbia County, Ark. — There’s no sign of it here in Magnolia, Ark., but the boycott season is upon us, and graduates of Princeton and Bryn Mawr are demanding “justice” from Wal-Mart, which is not in the justice business but in the groceries, clothes, and car-batteries business. It is easy to scoff, but I am ready to start taking the social-justice warriors’ insipid rhetoric seriously — as soon as two things happen: First, I want to hear from the Wal-Mart-protesting riffraff a definition of “justice” that is something that does not boil down to “I Get What I Want, Irrespective of Other Concerns.”

Second, I want to turn on the radio and hear Jay-Z boasting about his new Timex.

It is remarkable that Wal-Mart, a company that makes a modest profit margin (typically between 3 percent and 3.5 percent) selling ordinary people ordinary goods at low prices, is the great hate totem for the well-heeled Left, whose best-known celebrity spokesclowns would not be caught so much as downwind from a Supercenter, while at the same time, nobody is out with placards and illiterate slogans and generally risible moral posturing in front of boutiques dealing in Rolex, Prada, Hermès, et al. It’s almost as if there is a motive at work here other than that which is stated by our big-box-bashing friends on the left and their A-list human bullhorns.

REPOST: 10th Annual Father’s Day Car Show In Edgewood, NM

Many of you have watched as Edgewood’s Father’s Day Car Show grew to a size which called for larger exhibit space.  This year Tony Jaramillo Jr and his crew will stage the event at Edgewood’s Wal-Mart.  This larger space developed after the  Wal-Mart’s manager and the parent organization stepped forward to offer a paved area for the show.

The proceeds for the event are to be donated to the Edgewood Mobile Food Pantry as has been the case for the last several years.  Volunteers from Valley View, along with other community volunteers will be working to make this year’s show the best ever. The food pantry will continue to be held at Valley View Christian Church.

The flyer found below, lists the major sponsors for the show, together with other information.  We would like to give special mention to Pastor Dewey Moede and his ministry FGGAM.org for their generous sponsorship donation.

Please call Tony Jaramillo Jr at 505-459-2358 for questions and please support the sponsors of this event.

Last, but not least, there is no entry fee for car exhibitors!
