Dumping ice on people’s heads has little or nothing to do with raising money for charity, despite all the propaganda about this recent craze.

Wal-Mart Crime report July 2014



Do you think it would be a good campaign slogan to tell the voters that not only will the candidate stand up to Walmart and Sam's Club but he'll steal their beer, paper towels and cashews if he can get away with it?

The current debate on the death penalty has been arguing that they can’t be done in a manner that they consider humane and this is being used, in recent coverage as the leading reason why some people think that the death penalty should be abolished. Some of/…

Wal-Mart Crime report March 2014



Someone managed to get arrested for sucking a woman’s toe at Wal-Mart this month. Apparently he did this by pretending to be a podiatrist and making friends while she tried on shoes.

A new statistical study has come out indicating that there is a correlation between Wal-Mart and higher crime. Wal-Mart, of course, quickly came out with a statement refuting it, which seems to be how they handle all their problems; but a closer look often indicates that their critics/…
