Pretzels for the Prez

Chimpy will be inaugurated in January and I'm sure you'll all want to send him a gift with a message, so let's make it a good one. Click here and send him a bag of pretzels.

Let's also send a message to his biggest contributors by boycotting Walmart and Dell Computers. Buy blue.

Walmart's support of the Chimpy presnitcy, is only one reason to boycott their stores and web site. Other reasons are:

They don't pay their employees a decent wage.

Most of their workers don't have health care.

Many of their goods are from China and so few are made in the US.

Women and minorities don't get promotions.

They wreck small towns and small businesses.

They have entire divisions of their legal department dedicated to keeping unions out of their stores.

They decided to shut down butcher shops in a group of stores and truck in pre-packaged meat from a couple of states away, because the butchers in those stores unionized.

They are excessively moralist and have banned books like Jon Stewart's America.

P.S. In case you didn't know, Sam's Club is owned by Walmart.

Costco, on the other hand, is a big-box store that contributes to Democrats and they treat their employees well. Let's reward good behavior and punish bad.
