Amen. I will never set foot in Wal-Mart again. They're f*cking up grocery workers lives in So Cal. And WE, the taxpayers, pay for Wal-Mart's employee health insurance, because they don't give any. :P

*sigh*

1. Animal posted a link to the this pic on the High Energy Magic forum at the Zoo.

2. Here in the backwards south, its a bit of a bragging right how many of the damn things a town has. Its like the measure of the town is how many Super Wal-Marts.

I had a roommate from Arizonia who was amazed when another guy and I were comparing our Wal-Marts and acting as if it meant something.

...I really need to move.
