Carol Platt Liebau: Don't Run Against Wal-Mart

Don't Run Against Wal-Mart

That's the message here based on polls that actually oversampled populations who would be expected to be hostile to Wal-Mart.

And it's all to the good. There's something unsavory about people seeking elected office attacking a legal, legitimate business enterprise that actually does a superb job in serving consumers of modest means just in order to win votes.

If the "public" didn't want them, then the "public" wouldn't shop there and Wal-Mart would have to close. Don't see that happening - do you?

And why should it unless it becomes a trend showing an overall decline in Wal-Mart as a business venture?

Businesses expand into new markets. That's what they do - the ones that want to grow and prosper, anyway.

Sometimes a new market doesn't pan out so that branch or franchise is closed.

Happens all the time. Why would it be news?

Yep. It's much more savory to engage in race-baiting, gay-bashing, and immigrant-trashing to pander to racists, homophobes, and xenophobes. Unfortunately, progressives can't play those cards, because the Republican right has patented the use of hate as a wedge issue.

JillMartin,

At our current state of knowledge and technology it is impossible for a woman to get another woman pregnant through sexual activity. So your imaginary fetus cannot be Carol's get.
