One Battle Won in the Long War

East Orange County residents fend off Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart has abandoned plans for a, are you sitting down?, 130,000 square foot superstore in East Orange County.

The initial objection was that the stores are ugly so Wal-Mart said they'd pretty up the exterior but residents still objected.

"I'm glad they listened to the citizens in this instance, but I still don't trust them, and I still won't shop in any of their stores," said Joey Jackson, a resident of Royal Manor Estates on Curry Ford Road.

But not every area has been successful in repelling the corporate raider that is Wal-Mart. We need to stand together, remain vigilant and fight this evil empire whereever it decides to try and settle its monopolostic backside. Where Wal-Mart goes, we must beat them there and send them away again. Let's force Wal-Mart to wander the desert for 40 years and see if they find a more enlightened path.

There's still more work to be done though so let's keep some soldiers on the ramparts just in case they try to slink away only to come rushing back in a surprise attack (it has happened before and they are not the most honorable of warriors). Vigilance is our ally, information is our weapon and communication is the way we can beat them.
