Leftwing Obsessions

The far left has some other rather odd obsessions. The far left is obsessed with Mc Donalds and KFC. They seem to forget that people choose to eat there. Both are businesses and employ local people. They were never meant to be careers and most are staffed by the young and sometimes senior citizens.

The far left has a Walmart fixation. I like Walmart and went to the local one yesterday. I like the store so much I bought shares in the company. The fact is that Costco operates on a similar model and gets little or no criticism mostly because they line the pockets of the DNC. I have seen the same model at BJ Wholesale club as well.

The far left by definition does not have a clue how markets work. They feel it is their divine right as overlord to tell you where to eat or shop. Well this Visine American has spent his currency in Walmart and I will eat lunch in KFC later. For the record I also own shares of KFC called Tricon Global.

Notice the far left does not seem to get worked up about Hollywood unless it is The Last Temptation of Christ.

My hatred of Wal-Mart was complete Beak when I read a rather convincing article in The Progressive concerning Wal-Mart activity which actually lowered the standard of living in Bangladesh. That takes some doing.

Not that you and your right wing thug brethren can understand that actions have consequences but I am here to instruct.

I own COSTCO stock. They have been a much better performer than Wal-Mart and their business model is pretty decent. Wal-Mart is having trouble finding enough communities to rip-off.

As far as being obsessed with KFC and McDonald's .... don't think so. I just fon't eat that shit. I have been active in the movement to keep that crap out of the local High School cafeteria but that's been it.

i have no clue what KFC you go to, because the few i've gone to here have a staff of maybe 2 legal citizens and the rest illegals. maybe because no illegal would want to go to VT.

walmart, good company, overrated stock. i've monitored this for about 4 years, and it has declined substantially. the holiday season doesn't spike it up either, it actually brought it down.

Good to hear from you. The Duck has been promoted to official Troll. He worked hard for the title.

I went to Walmart yesterday and I love the place. The Duck as usual gets his news from such unbiased sources as the Progressive. For those of you in Union Square Communists call themselves Progressive or Greens in order to hide their true colors.

Duck the American people do not agree with you. Plenty of people world wide enjoy Mc Donalds and KFC. We do not need a Nanny state least of all with any imput from Commies like yourself. Who appointed you to be mother Duck ?
Let the people have freedom of choice. Wait the far left only uses that term for abortion.

The only problems I have with Wal-Mart is that they censor the music CDs they sell, fill their book sections with all kinds of pseudo-Christian literature, but are decidedly anti-Christian when it comes to promoting Christmas.

Sam Walton's kids are wringing every cent out of their inheritance as they take the corporation straight into the toilet. And now they're getting the shakedown by just about every pet leftist anti-business cause in America.

No love for those who embrace their own demise.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

And screw KFC too. Ever since Pepsi-Cola bought them (and Pizza Hut and Taco Bell) they've shortened their menus and become a monopoly of cholesterol dealers.

Ah, never mind. I'm just mad that they only sell fried chicken livers on Wednesdays.

beamish:

why would you go to wal-mart for CDs? J&R, best buy, circuit city, or iTunes are the only spots to go.

what is the deal about 'holiday' trees. why not call it what it is- a Christmas tree. i still can't figure it out.

Wal-Mart to me is an example of what I call the "down side" of freedom. That is: in a free society, people can actually do things you don't like! In this case, shop at Wal-Mart. The pro-freedom contrarian me would like to support Wal-Mart simply because the most unthinking segments of the Left (check the comments for an example, and I think we all know who I mean) have attacked it. However, my own experiences with Wal-Mart have been almost uniformly negative. Maybe there are better Wal-Marts elsewhere, but the ones I've been in "'round hyar" (the Greater Atlanta region) have all been depressing, poorly-run and stress-inducing. Not only is the help either (a) moronic or (b) just off the boat and unable to communicate clearly in English, but the clientele makes the guest roster of the Jerry Springer Show look upscale and sophisticated by comparison. I much prefer Target, which not only attracts a better quality employee but a less depressing clientele. (The one Target I go to most for some reason attracts a number of smartly-dressed, attractive, young Eastern European women, which is nice.) Still, it's good to have the freedom to shop at Wal-Mart or at Target, as one's tastes dictate. Imagine a world in which there was only one distributor of goods and services: the State. Then all sotores would probably be like Wal-Mart, only worse.

Beamish, I don't believe PEPSICO owns KFC, they's YUM Brands. You might want to check in with your investment advisor.

It has been a while since I have commented on your blog but I read it daily and often am just too much in shock to say anything. Sometimes, I am not sure where you draw the line between satire and reality but today, I think I can distinguish between the two.

I agree with you in your post. I don't know if its just the far left but many politicians are in the habit of singling out one company when they know (or at least I hope they know), that one company does not define and often cannot erradicate the problem.

I don't shop at Walmart, eat at KFC, or condone the meat production practices of McDonalds but I agree with you these companies should not be singled out for practices that occur industry wide.

By the way - when will you make it official that visine is the word of the month!!!

samwich said...

Lowered the Standard of Living in Bangladesh?????

I thought the only way that could happen is if they scraped the top 50 feet of topsoil off and pushed it into the ocean.

What a goddamned robber baron.

KillsFoolsChicken and McHeartDisease: Abdicate responsibility for your own well being and health to an ad agency at your own peril. If you worry about cholesterol quit eating SHIT that stimulates your liver to produce the crap.

I prefer the "Sugarbusters" type diets.

Having started my working life in an expensive supper club did give me the advantage in nutritional training. Continuing on to a MS in Biology was the healthiest education I could get.

I shop Costco, the quality of New York and Tenderloin strips, lobster tail, crab, produce and olive oil get me. I cook with wine and the selection and prices are terrific.
A good drinking Chardonnay goes for about $6 for a 1.5l bottle and as a cooking wine, the best gourmets going can't tell it was cheap. Same for the Burgundy, Port, Sherry, Marsalla and Chianti. And I don't need several extra bottles of different quality wines if a drinking guest is present. Costco's cheap wines ride the quality goods coattails.

I catch my own salmon, various whitefish and trout. AND ONE OF THESE DAYS I'LL GET A KEEPER STEELHEAD, I SWEAR TO GOD!!!!

I also shop at wholesale grocers who supply the restaraunt trade for better quality foods.

Beamish, you ain't pissed at me for the "spit it out" comment???

What did Rapeublican say???

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Samwich,

Every dog gets a free bite before they're considered feral and have to be put down. ;)

Rapeublican made homoerotic advances towards me even more disgusting than Ducky usually does.

Kyle said...

I got to agree with BILLWICK, I am a righty free-trader, but I loath Wally World. They sell only cheap crap, are always crowded with fat people wearing spandex, and I never shop there.
I also dont like KFC, because Popeyes spicy is where its at baby!
I do like taco bell though, Only place left I can get filled on under $5.00

beakerkin said...

Kyle

I do like Popeyes but it is unavailable in VT. I like Walmart and the folks that shop in them here are regular folk.

The Duck and Co can have Benetton but I like Walmart.

samwich said...

Beamish, some days I'm a slave to temptation.
Homoerotic advances huh, maybe you shouldn'ta bragged about your equipment! Ya temptress!!!!!

Mr. Ducky said...

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...
