Are you going to still shop at WalMart ?

Walmart said late Wednesday it is suspending membership in the American Legislative Council (ALEC), which the retailer joined in 1993.

ALEC sparked controversy recently because of its involvement in voting laws and in "stand your ground" gun laws, including the one under scrutiny in the Florida killing of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in February.

It looks to me like the big retailer caved in to the liberal side. Are you still going to support them by buying WWB ammo there ?

When the number of people in institutions reaches 51%, we change sides.

I'd buy from Obama himself if I can get a good price.

No, I generally avoid that place, so this will have no impact.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

If you are going to require that every place you purchase anything supports politically conservative causes (not just keeping out of politics, not just not supporting liberal causes, but actively giving funds to conservative groups), you're going to have a very difficult time buying anything.

As long as they continue to have the best prices in my area I will still buy there. If my local Wal-Mart carried 9x18 I wouldn't go to gun shops aside from to look at guns. Their prices are always quite a bit higher than Wal-Mart.

This is more politics than not and this is both the wrong forum and the wrong board for that. Closed.
