Wal-Mart Continues Left

Sam Walton: Mad enough yet to hop out of that grave and kick some serious butt at his former company?
****************************************
The state media did not really cover it here, probably because they realized that it would not play well in Arkansas, but Wal-Mart is moving to "green labeling". The New York Times explains:

"The idea is to create a universal rating system that scores products based on how environmentally and socially sustainable they are over the course of their lives. Consider it the green equivalent to nutrition labels."

Hear is my take on it: It sounds like a way to give even more power to lefties to destroy any company who does not give money to lefty causes. The group who does the rating goes to a company and says "The overall environmental effect of your products is really bad and we are going to have to rate them as such, UNLESS YOU OFFSET that damage by writing fat checks to the following groups......"

That high-pitched whine that you hear is Sam Walton spinning in his grave at an amazing number of RPMs.

I pledge to find the worst products and buy them. Not because I want to destroy the planet, but because I think this is just stupid.
