In response to skeeter20's comment:
So, as Walmart leverages the free market, acts competitively, you deride them for doing so.
Look, you are free to spend youur Saturday mornings browsing some dusty small neighborhood store, pay $20 for a bulb that cost less that $10 at Walmart, if you want. Heck, I do that sometimes, because the local people are usually more knowledgeable and helpful. But that is a choice, a free market choice.
But to constantly deride Walmart as having an "exploitive business model" is to ignore a glaring fact right in front of you:
Walmart is more successful at delivering green energy solutions than all of Obama's green energy programs combined.
The free market: Try it, you'll like it.
The free market includes the choices people make based on moral and ethical issues as well as financial ones. That the poster finds fault is both their perpogative as well as spreading the information on which they based their opinions. And so it is fair game for others as well.
Free market and free speach.
What we are lacking is the full scope of democracy in this country. From Tea Party conservatives to Occupy liberals there is a large segment of voters who recognize how our government, Rs and Ds, sell out to money. We should be uniting to restore democracy. Then we can get back to trying to persuade each other on social issues.
