Whoa There, PARDner!


Chinese Junk

You might want to reconsider saying that Wal-Mart only sells "cheap Chinese crap."

From Reuters:
A Chinese primary school teacher and a beautician have filed a suit against CNN in New York over remarks they say insulted the Chinese people and are seeking $1.3 billion in compensation -- $1 per person in China, a Hong Kong newspaper reported.

I bought a "made in China" grill from the SUPER WALMART (yeah, I've got one now) in College Place, WA (basically Walla Walla).

It had every part, down the the last washer, and all of the drill holes where properly placed.

Now, I think this lawsuit should die a flaming death, but it does underscore a funny point - the "progessives" have zero problem utilizing nationalism and/or racism when it suits their tiny agenda.

Just to make that clear: THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE ANTI-WALMART MOVEMENT IN PULLMAN ARE ELITISTS AND RACISTS.

They're morally ugly people, so it's fair to treat them in ugly ways. However, the truth is not ugly, even though it does frequently hurt.
