Character is what God and the angels know of us;
reputation is what men and women think of us.
--Horace Mann 

Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing:
 the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own

Viktor E. Frankl

  I Hate Wal-Mart by Dave Lippman walm.gif

I've always hated Blockbuster
Starbucks, not quite so much
If I'm not boycotting at least 3 oil companies
I start to feel out of touch
I wouldn't be seen near Nordstrom's or any such
And I hate Wal-Mart

I don't like whips, I don't like chains
I don't go choppin up my neighbors' brains
Don't really even like shopping
except at the Flea Mart
And I hate Wal-Mart

Now you may wonder, why all this fuss
If you don't like the plane, take the bus
Well I've found religion, and just between us
I hate Wal-Mart

If you didn't hear the story, here's how it is
Big company sells below cost
Drive mom and pop out of biz
Pretty soon all over the land
One big square store, identical brand
And that's why I hate Wal-Mart

Used to be you could drive around
Stop in at three or four towns
Encounter different sights and sounds
Different if not unique
Different accent, different smell
Different things to buy and sell
Now it's all Taco Bell
I hate Wal-Mart

Roads used to dip and wind
You drive slow, relax your mind
Never knew what you'd find
Round the next bend
Now the freeway goes so straight
It'd go right past the Pearly Gate
I don't feel human, I feel like freight
I hate Wal-Mart

I like to roam, I like to greet
Individuals on the street
You always know the one you meet is
One of a kind
But more and more they seem to be
Reflections of something on TV
When we're all alike, nobody's free
I hate Wal-Mart

I boycott Burger King
I boycott Newt Gingrich
I boycott everything which
I've seen advertised

I used to go out to dinner in a diner
Now they say fast food is finer
But it tastes like fell out of an airliner
It's enough to make you weep

I don't like board games
I don't like brand names
They make inflated claims
They're full of bleep
Everyone I meet is a high-tech dealer
Wants to sell me a digital potato peeler
And I don't like Garrison Keillor cause
He's so white

Turn on my radio dial
Like to hear something new once in a while
But it's the same old crap in a brand new style
It's audio rape
Still I try to pick and choose
Turn the dial but I always lose
They only play the worst rock and roll
And once in a while one little rhythm and blues
And that's why God made tape

Used to be we wore beads and bells
Sewed our own clothes in our own way
Now we all wear uniforms that say
Hard Rock Cafe
We're in a state of sartorial decay
That's why I hate Wal-Mart

If there's a pretty spot they'll pave it over
Put a cloverleaf over a four-leaf clover
Black paint on the White Cliffs of Dover
It never fails
Hope you like this song, thanks a bunch
I could go on, but I gotta go eat lunch
If you didn't like it, I've got a hunch
You work in sales

So grow your own, make your own
Be careful what you own
Develop non-shopping to an art
And whatever you do
Don't shop at Wal-Mart

About Me I do not suffer fools gladly! Ignorance is curable, stupidity is terminal. I don't sign virtual petitions and try not to engage in armchair activism. I hate sappy forwards, and I delete them automatically. I am a rabid tobacco hater, all kinds, hate the smell, taste and watching the longterm effects on people I love. I believe this right-wing police state theocracy we are living in, is temporary, and the pendulum will swing back the other way. I only hope some of the environment is not totally raped by that point. I think they should draft the SUV drivers first. I hate wars, especially senseless ones like this one. (yes I support our troops over there, but I think they are doomed to fail and should come back home!)I'm a deeply spiritual Episcopalian,duly elected Senior Warden and religious people scare the hell out of me! I am happily monogamous for 21 years. I love to have stimulating conversations with thoughtful, compassionate people. I'm allergic to Neocons and white trash. Contact with extreme caution :o)
Yes, I'm really an actress-bartender-child advocate-teacher-logotherapist hospice counselor, and don't ask me what I think unless you really want to know. Oh, and PLEASE SEND AN INTRO IF YOU WANT TO BE ADDED AS A FRIEND!

It is criminal to put our servicemen and women in harm's way and to put the lives of so many civilians on the line for the misguided frustrations of the Bush administration. Dave Mattthews
How well I have learned that there is no fence to sit on between heaven and hell. There is a deep, wide gulf, a chasm, and in that chasm is no place for any man.
Johnny Cash
The beast in me is caged by frail and fragile bars. Johnny Cash
A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.
Jim Morrison
I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong?
Willie Nelson
A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

    "I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." Charles Dickens    Wishes for a Happy Christmas and Happy Days in your life .
