Sal, I guess with the new Walmart being a done deal you need something else - anything else - to complain about.

Come on Sal, one need look no further than government; Illinois governors for example: Kerner (D), Walker (D), Ryan (R), Blagojevich (D), Smith (R), Stratton (R). The first four were convicted, the last two acquitted. Crooks come in all stripes.

Everyone fudges a little bit on their tax returns. Golly sakes. The prosecution of this job creating hero is probably just an attempt to distract us from the bigger issues like getting rid of teachers' unions and Planned Parenthood. If we had capitalism the way it's supposed to be, there'd be less needless state regulation of harmless activity such as this. Gee whiz! Just another indication that Obama is in way over his head!

Mittens, No one is defending this person or his actions. Just one of many bad players.

I think you may have taken my words out of context. I wouldn't dream of defending this person, persecuted job creating hero that he is.

Thanks can't! I knew it was Gollum (my name for this person of many names). I try to counter his/her nonsense.

Oh, Kathleen, we are so lucky to have you and Stacey on this forum. I, for one, appreciate how no topic is to small for you two two run out on stage and say, "Here I am, everybody! It's ME! Here, have some wisdom!" You ladies are true Pleasantonian treasures!

Well, Shark, if someone asks a question and no one else responds, I will IF I have something helpful to add. As most people post anonymously (and often using different names depending on the topic), how would we know how often other individuals post? I don't comment on everything; when I post, if it's factual, I'll provide a link; if it's my opinion, I make that clear. I doubt I'm any wiser than you. Don't know why you would choose to berate either us over say Steve or Sam or Cholo or hoops . . . I actually appreciate those who use one name, given or assumed, so I can follow their posts and thinking. I find much of what is posted can be educational, whether I agree or not.

Sal,

Your liberal agenda has done irrepribral harm to this country..republicans say no more! if you want to continue to live like a liberal may I suggest moving to London England where you can enjoy road taxes, huge fuel taxes, mandated health care taxes, luxury car taxes etc..etc. [Portion removed due to disrespectful comment or offensive language]

I like Kathleen and Stacey's comments because they speak for the community. Unlike so many of the poseurs who only speak for outsiders. I embrace their community inclusiveness ideals. Sal is probably a socialist troll who lives in San Francisco. I wish PW could find a way to prohibit him and others from disrupting our discourse.

I *do* speak for the community. And I mean that sincerely. Because everyone knows that any over-the-top and absurd statement is absolutely true, no matter how petty.
