The People of Wal-Mart
There are many reasons I don't shop at Wal-Mart: They destroy Mom & Pop stores, they treat their employees like shit, they contribute to right-wingers, and more ...The only time I'll go there is if it's the only store within 10 miles, and sometimes, in small towns, it truly is the only store within 10 miles.
The people that shop at Wal-Mart are another, uh, breed, entirely. Check out this website ("The Peopleof Wal-Mart") to give yourself yet another reason to avoid Wal-Mart. Or, hey, you might find your long-lost cuzzin there.
The only true shield standing between women and the bible, that handbook for the subjugation of women, is a secular government. U.S. citizens must wake up to the threat of an encroaching theocracy, and shore up Thomas Jefferson's 'wall of separation between church and state.'
If some good evidence for life after death were announced, I'd be eager to examine it; but it would have to be real scientific data, not mere anecdote. As with the face on Mars and alien abductions, better the hard truth, I say, than the comforting fantasy. And in the final tolling it often turns out that the facts are more comforting than the fantasy.
