The presentation is fascinating and infuriating at the same time. PARD has been following Norman's playbook to the letter. I won't get into the "7 Step Plan" yet, as I am saving that for a post-mortem of PARD showing how they failed
A few other things mentioned in the presentation do, however, give some valuable insight into PARD's tactics:
Wal-Mart is never a “done deal.”I hope this further disabuses anyone of the notion that PARD is waging a "grassroots" struggle. It is being scripted, choreographed, and funded by forces outside of Pullman.
Gosh,that sounds familiar.
Time is on your side. The longer the delay, the better chance Wal-Mart will leave.
Now you know why PARD is dragging things out and why their attorneys were pushing for a September hearing date.
If you don’t fight, you have a 0% chance of winning.
And that sums up PARD's motivation for continuing this pointless battle that is costing Pullman taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars.
