TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE ON THE FIGHT AGAINST THE WALDO WAL★OCAUST!!!
Of course we always want to show our love toward Kansas City Grassroots political movements against corporations and that's why we put news about "Waldonians Against Wallmart" on blast.
Really, it doesn't take much to convince TKC of dirty discount deeds using cheap Chinese labor and busting American humps with dead end jobs . . . All without even the decency to provide the level of cool that lets Apple get away with pretty much the same thing without as many complaints.
Anyhoo . . .
THANKS TO A KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS WE HAVE A BIT OF INSIGHT AND ALTERNATIVE PERSPECTIVE REGARDING THE HOT MESS AND FEAR OF A WALDO WAL★OCAUST!!!
Here's the news:
"The real story why some don't want Wal-Mart in Waldo is that certain groups and schools use the empty grounds for their practice soccer fields. Example: St. Elizabeth's, their are others. The real goal is all green space . . . Hen House changed their mind about the location too, they probably had more behind the scenes info about problems with this clandestine effort to hold on to green space which could become a dog park or worse."
And so . . . It's important to understand that community activism isn't always what it seems in Kansas City and even corporate fighters might have an agenda other than making sure that discount shopping (and minorities) don't set up shop in one of this town's last remaining enclaves.
