    1. If you’re age 60 and up or at high-risk for coronavirus (COVID-19), we offer new services to help you get the medication you need.

      This is hideous formatting. Walmart web techs need to make this much larger and more legible since we older folk can't always read so well.

    1. "First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." - Martin Luther King Jr.


    2. Wipe that smug ass look off your face, Hilary Rosen. This WiPiPo crap has got to stop.

    1. For decades, Sanders has had the luxury of railing about the need for big changes without ever having the power, or responsibility, to achieve them. American socialists are to the left what libertarians are to the right, gadflies and Jiminy Crickets trying to play the role of conscience for the two dominant parties.

      And which of the ludicrous slew of now former candidates HAS had the "luxury" of "railing about" (whatever that is) "or responsibility, to achieve them." ?? Does Biden even count? What VP has ever been more than the White House version of a whip.

    2. What value is literacy if you're told what you can and cannot read?

      There is ALWAYS value in literacy. What did Kasparov learn in the USSR? Did the "State" educate him? Is he literate because of the USSR? Did that allow him to become a World Chess Champion? Does the fact that he was educated in the USSR detract from ANYTHING he's ever done since?

      Of course not. To suggest such a thing would be crass.

    3. You do not praise the commanders of a concentration camp if a prisoner sculpts a masterpiece from mud.

      This whole argument is gaslighting on steroids. Kasparov, and many others who have taken the same tack, are deliberately ignoring the humanity of Bernie's statements and recasting them as praise for dictatorships.

      He even explains what Bernie was talking about in the form of a rebuke:

      "The people of Cuba and China survive, and sometimes thrive, despite their socialism and despite their brutal regimes, not because of them."

      Yes, Garry, it's about the PEOPLE. You DO praise the prisoner of a concentration camp for their amazing art, because you praise the human being creating the art, not the filthy scum imprisoning them.

    1. Leg.

      Just kidding. This is an AWESOME video! Very funny and wonderfully simple animation :)

    1. The idea that Bernie is some kind of grouchy ogre is an old and ugly snipe. Nobody ever spends time talking about his smiles or immediate concern for people's physical safety or intensely deep sense of empathy for the blue collar working populace. He's not our friend. He won't call to wish us a happy birthday. He won't make us chuckle with a well-timed joke.

      That's not his job.

      His job is to, hopefully, become president and start working to change America into the land our Constitution promised. It's nowhere near impossible, but it won't be easy wresting control from the corporate establishment (AKA; The DNC). They are engineering the nomination process as we speak to keep Bernie from taking the nomination.
