While many people complain about the corporate behemoth of exploitation that Wal-Mart has become to American communities, a friend of David has come up with this own solution to fighting the corporation: using their products for free.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Woulda been better without the gratuitous dig at (4+ / 0-)

    WalMart employees as drooling idiots.

      we accurate portrayed the job itself, with its demoralizing work conditions and low pay, as the reason for the zombie like behavior at Wal-Mart return lines. Any sane person would react with zombie attitude at the Wal-Mart return line.

      If that wasn't accurately portrayed, then I sincerely apologize for offending anyone's sensibilities.

    summer.
    He went to Wallyworld and bought a little window unit, used it for their upstairs until the repair was complete, and returned it, for his money, with the receipt.
    My mother loves sending us gifts for which we often have no use. if walmart stocks it, walmart will take it no receipt, for store credit.
    Look around for items you may have purchased for a project and never used- go get something you can use.

    It is a confused, unenlightened business model, so let's make it work for us.
