WAL-MART Calls Police On Christmas Carol Singers
It is for reasons such as what is pointed out in the article below; along with the rest of Wal-Mart's predatory capitalism, abuse of their employees through willful violation of national labor laws (including the widespread use of illegal aliens), outsourcing, and placing MADE IN USA labels on clothing items actually made in the third-world --- that I REFUSE to shop at this store.
Furthermore, it is very worrisome to me that this is one more example of the De-Christmasizing of America. As long as we keep things to conspicious consumption, Happy Holidays, and the avoidance of anything that might refer to Christianity at this time of year, things are okay. But, just try to ask your town council to put up a manger scene in front of town hall, and then there are all kinds of problems --- threats are made --- and lawsuits begin to fly.
The way to fight these globalists is to vote with your dollars, the only language they understand. In my own case, I know about all the BAD THINGS that Wal-Mart has done, and I simply boycott them. Additionally, once I had taken the time to explain to people in my life what Wal-Mart is truly all about, I was successful in changing the shopping habits of several people I know, including my best-friend Robert and his family. If we ALL did this, this store chain would get hurt in their BOTTOM LINE.
The demoralization of religion is all a part of the agenda to destroy the USA from within. When global empires fall, they fall because of a demoralized citizenry, corrupt government, an overextended economy and runaway debt. Before the inevitable final collapse, the empire needs to engage in war in a last-ditch attempt to prop up the flagging economy.
Does any of this sound like the AmeriKa of today?
HOW WAL-MART IS DESTROYING AMERICA AND THE WORLD
The paperback book with the above title was written by a man named Bill Quinn. A short read at 172 pages, it wastes no time at all getting down to the business of showing what it is exactly that Wal-Mart has been doing to get themselves in the position of the most suded corporation on the planet.
In a concise seven chapters, Mr. Quinn tells the tale of how Wal-Mart behaves which has earned them them their highly negative reputation. For example, Wal-Mart claims they have the lowest prices around. This is only true when they first come into a new area. Once they have successfully lowered their prices to the point of bankrupting local small businesses, they INCREASE their prices, which harms the consumer.

A SOUR NOTE FOR CHOIR AT WAL-MART
by CHRISTINE ARMARIO
NEWSDAY STAFF WRITER
December 16, 2005
A festive group of high school choir students from Central Islip singing at an Islandia shopping center discovered over the weekend that some people were not in the holiday spirit.
After entering a Wal-Mart store, the choir was quickly asked to leave before even starting to sing its first song.
The Central Islip High School concert choir had just finished a performance at the United Methodist Church off Veterans Memorial Highway, when the students proposed to go caroling in the shopping center across the street.
Their director, John Anthony, approved the move and the group of about 30 students found warm welcomes at the Stop & Shop grocery store and other shops in the center. That is, until they entered Wal-Mart.
Right away, a store manager approached the award-winning group, announcing that they did not have an appointment and that the sheer size of the group posed a fire hazard, Anthony said.
The teens then sang one song - "Guide Me," a classic Welsh tune - to the delight of the customers.
"Sing more!" Anthony said the shoppers were screaming. But Wal-Mart was adamant and even called police. The students left peacefully before police arrived and no arrests were made.
The choir's merriment quickly disintegrated, the director said. "The kids were just 'Bah humbug!'" he added.
Wal-Mart officials released a statement this week saying the choir's appearance was unscheduled and created a fire code violation. "For their safety and the safety of our customers, we asked them to move," the statement read.
Wal-Mart has offered the school an opportunity for the choir to return at a scheduled time. The store also made an undisclosed donation toward the choir's trip next summer to Austria, where they will be one of three student choirs from the United States to perform at a celebration of the 250th anniversary of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's birth.
