I'm going to upgrade my opinion of Walmart from "evil" to "mostly evil" - upgrade pending whether corporate takes action against the manager responsible.

Walker: They can survive in there for months, especially if it's a Super Walmart with a grocery store inside. In a zombie apocalypse make a run for the Super Walmart.


Bad idea.  Ground zero of the infection will probably be AT walmart.

Darwin's calling for a foul.  He can't believe the refs are allowing this.

Seriously, WTF were those people doing on the road?  If you know shiat like that is coming (I'm in the People's Republic of Best California and knew it was coming!), don't go to work the day it's supposed to hit.  If you must go to work, plan for the incredibly likely possibility that the storm will hit early and you'll be better off spending the night at work instead of trying to drive home in your front wheel drive mom-van with bald tires and no chains.

And people are actually complaining because Governor Patrick ordered all non-essential drivers off the road at 4PM yesterday in MA.  At least we have no scenes like this.

Hipster douche rhetoric against WalMart--bah.  Those Mom and Pop stores went out of business because they did not have a sufficient variety of merchandise and what they did have was overpriced.  Plus,  a customer had to deal with whatever shiatty mood they were in that day.  Not me, I hate those little entremanuers.
Love WalMart--good prices, nice employees, lots of merch.  Nice place to walk around if nothing else.  I love going there late at night.
I keep 'em in business.  All my stuff comes from there.

1st Amendment ring any bells?   Freedom of assembly.   Executive order = Martial Law.

MrHelpful: But...but...but Walmart is the root of all evil.  Obama told me so.


Walmart's ineptness at the most simple concepts of logistics has done more to keep me from shopping there than anything Obama could've done.

You know those bins with the cheap video games and 5 dollar dvds? Don't touch those. We call those "the sars bin". Every sick person coughs into it while mauling every dvd.

basemetal: Do they sell beer?  I could see making due for a few days there with a credit card on hand.


In New York, likely yes.

They got about a foot more out there around Middle Island than we did on this part of the island. Three hours from Commack to Middle Island is insane.

We never really had WalMarts on LI until about 10 or so years ago. Now there's a bunch.

Good for them.  Hopefully Corporate doesn't f*ck this up and punish the store...
