Black Friday-Boycott Walmart-Occupy Walmart!

Of all the blasphemies I can possibly think of, the idea of Black Friday and Walmart stands highest and at the top of the list! A little Child is born in Bethlehem, homeless of an unwed mother, poor, cold, and destined to die for the poor and those left out in the cold. Walmart opens early for a shopping frenzy of expensive foreign made trinkets for our children. Americans stand unemployed, homes lost, and left out in the cold. And the rich count their billions and roll around in their greed snorting satisfaction.
Blasphemy!
For many of us who are unemployed, without health insurance, and having lost our homes, a boycott of Walmart will be an easy thing. Millions of us already stay away.
But what if we Occupy Walmart on Black Friday? What if we block the doorways? Pepper sprayed victims from across the country cry out for justice. The Machine is grinding us and moves against our cry for jobs at decent wages.
We'll never get good jobs from Walmart. We will never get decent wages at Walmart. We will never get health insurance from Walmart.
Boycott Walmart this Black Friday. Send a message they will feel in their pocket books. Millions more are beginning to hear your cries for justice.
Boycott Walmart! Occupy Walmart!
This is the Peace that passes understanding...Justice!

Walmart has been good too and for many people who like and need their jobs. You, would like convince people that they do not have the opportunity to succeed. You must keep people wanting and in hate, for your own reasons I guess. I feel very sorry for you, may God forgive you..

WalMart is hardly what I consider "success". Minimum wages, part-time work, no health care. Better than no job, I'll grant you, but a far cry from those days when we had those kinds of jobs that could support a family, and provide health care, vacations, and a reasonably comfortable retirement. I apologize if my words sound hateful. I meant them only to be angry. I will not be in any store tomorrow to buy anything. I shall be with my family to treasure the human heart. Oh yes, God forgive me...and you too!

What you all seem to forget is that, in what ever small town Wal-Mart has arrived, all the small businesses that USED to be there, and USED to pay a fair wage were driven out of business. Are your memories that darn short? Watch the documentary "Wal-Mart; the hight cost of low Price" THEN have an opinion once you know the facts . . . .

Walmart India is a known corporate terrorist that has reached to the top by kicking, and hurting all the people connected to their warped system. However, we should realise the fact that the people behind this corporate beast have been manipulating humanity for a long time.
