Walmart hater karma

August 20, 2008

This makes me so happy:

Walt Neidlinger spent years trying to keep a Wal-Mart-anchored shopping complex from being built near his Wind Gap home.

The traffic would have been suffocating for their little community, neighbors argued, so when the massive retailer and its partners packed up their plans and left Plainfield Township last year, Neidlinger was ecstatic. He figured he’d wait for the next plan to come along and remembers thinking, ”What could be worse than Wal-Mart?”

Over the past year, Neidlinger says, he’s gotten an answer: RPM Recycling — the metal-shredding plant on the same land — causes daily noise that sounds like a freight train rumbling down the street, and frequent explosions that shake his walls.

Sweet justice.

    I finally figured out why you’re such a Wal-Mart cheerleader, John: old age security. Once you hit 70, you’ve got a Greeter gig in the bag!

    It’s not so much my love of Walmart as it is my disgust with people who try to stop me from shopping there. To them I say a big “fuck you and the horse you rode in on”.

    Horses, John (my question mark and apostrophe keys are apparently not working, but Id put a question mark there if I could).

    That’s sort of what I assumed. I dislike WalMart stores very much, but I don’t think I’m making a political statement by not shopping there. That would be dumb.

    That’s it, Patrick. It’s all about freedom of choice. Something that many (modern) liberals throw out the window after the abortion issue.
