BlueOregon, the folks who hate black people (if I keep saying it then it must be true), have come up with the most compelling argument yet against Wal-Mart stores: people drive cars there.
This is in contradistincion to places like Fred Meyer, Wickes furniture and the local abortion clinic.
"The store is planned in a location zoned as "transit oriented retail commercial," intended to attract bus, bike, and other local non-automobile traffic. As we all know by now, Wal-Mart stores are very car/SUV/RV-focused. The company itself estimates that over 7,000 new car trips a day will occur if the store is built."
This is why it's laughable for any Democrat to say that they "own the economic issue." Their goal in life is to make things harder for bussiness to make money. Unionization, regulation, zoning, permits, taxes, fees, mandates AND ABOVE ALL ELSE YOUR CUSTOMERS CAN'T DRIVE CARS are things that make bussiness owners cringe.
Side note: Ben Westlund, that guy who used to be a Republican (waits for laughter to subside), has an ad on BlueOregon. I guess he is counting on his candidacy being supported by liberals and folks who hate black people. (If I keep saying it then it must be true)
