Penn & Teller on Wal-Mart Hatred -video


Language Warning: If the title of their show, "Bullsh*t" doesn't give you your first clue, let me tell you, if you are offended by the "f-bomb", or crude remarks, please don't watch the video.

Additional *NSFW Warning* -Some full frontal female nudity

For the rest of you, it's a pretty good Fisking of Wal-Mart hatred.

  1. This afternoon I posted "Quit picking on Walmart." While doing my research, I discovered that ShopKo and Target pay their employees less, while their prices have skyrocketed.

    When Walmart came to our small town, one tiny little hardware store closed up. The other one, a locally owned Ace, has added a large addition. Walmart didn't hurt them. Want to know why? They knew the only thing they had that was different was service - and it is beyond outstanding. Many times I'll buy at Ace for just that reason.

    Those T-shirt makers were despicably ignorant.

    BTW - I'll be 67 next month and I just secured a job doing food demo's at local grocery store for 4 hours three days per week. I have two college degrees (science and business) and I like my job just fine. It adds $500.00 per month to our medical tourism account which I think we may need in the near future.

    1. It's funny, but many liberals who despise Wal-Mart love Costco...another "big box store"! And many of them despise Wal-Mart and "Big Oil", and want to tax "the rich", are economically more illiterate than the "rubes" they think shop at Wal-Mart!

      Every time I saw the t-shirt makers, the word "bigot" was the only thing that came to mind.

      Poor Target gets picked on from both sides. Conservatives used to boycott them for their pro-abortion bias, but recently, some on the left were upset because Target had contributed to some anti-gay candidate!

    2. And Adrienne, feel free to post a link to your website whenever it adds to the conversation. It ain't "blog whoring" if it's relevant, IMHO.

    3. Okay.

      BTW - I'm a HUGE Costco fan. I worked for them for eight years. Great employer - high, high wages, and great bennies.

  2. Thanks for the vid. I'm going to post it on my blog. It deserves the exposure.
    I live in a very small town, run by the "good ol' boys" who all decided that the proposed Wal-Mart would be detrimental to the small business owners in town. Wal-Mart went to another town. We now drive 75 miles round trip to go to W-M. Oh, and the small businesses? Well, one of their own sold some very valuable land for mega bucks so they could have a by-pass for the snow traffic. The by-pass is right across from the hated Starbucks and Round Table Pizza. Downtown, is loaded with empty stores, and a thriving bar.
    I will drive however far I have to to shop at W-M because I know how our pension was earned!!!!

    1. Wal-Mart often gets a bad rap. P&T did a good job of fisking the haters.
