    Speaking of walmart, the president of my company told me the other day that about 10 years ago, Walmart offered to buy our warehouse, cause it has like 5 loading docks and nice setup. He said no. He said, had he taken the deal, he could have retired. I asked him if he could do it over, would he have sold, he said, in a heartbeat. The Walmart is like a mile from us. Not sure where they ended up building their warehouse, but they were going to pay primo dinero.

    Ohh, and that Miami sh** would never happen here. In order to cut down ANY tree on this island, you need approval from a specific town council member. I am talking EVERY tree. Private or public property. I want to cut down this old busted tree in the middle of my back yard, and I have to wait on a list for her to come look at it. I could probably just go back there and hack the thing down, but I don't want the neighbors to dime me out. Miami needs to tighten up their local government if they want to prevent this crap. Like I said, if they wanted to protect the land, they should have put a bid on it, or simply state that there could be no further development or removal of trees without approval.... If you don't have the laws in place to protect it, they can't really complain.

The mom and pops faught this nation wide back in the 90s, and the precedent was set. Little guy loses. People will sacrifice their own beliefs for convenience and money. For cheap toilet paper, ground beef and bulk soda, people say, who gives a fu** about a bald eagle?

    And with UM and them, if there were no restrictions on the sale or use of this land, maybe the federal or state government should have put a bid in for it for conservation purposes. But you can hardly fault a public company for trying to flip land for profit. That article never stats how much Walmart paid for the land. A few hundred Mill I would think? They also didn't cite anything in the article that indicates the impact. This is 88 acres or so, of how many? Is it a few thousands of acres? Did walmart already perform due diligence and see results say that trimming down that portion would simply move a few animals down. It was very vague. I would just assume there are two sides to a story. Even though Walmart is a corporate juggernaut, they still deal with public relations and I find it hard to believe that they just said fu** it. It's not like they are known for building on top of Indian Burial grounds and stuff. I am sure they have gone after numerous properties and either been denied, or realized that their impact would be too great.

    I have never worked for a company like them, but I have worked for a lot of companies, including financial firms, and a lot of people think everyone is so irresponsible and I have found that not to be true. People at the big boy table talk about these things. A lot of people involved in this probably had to analyse the environmental impact. Since they problems about 8 years ago, Walmart has become a lot more transparent about their business, employees and ethics. When money is on the table, it trumps ethics a lot of the time. But I dunno.

    Sad story, but not surprising. With land dwindling and over population a serious concern, it's only a matter of time before we start looking at places differently. State reserves, farm land. All of it.
    Zach, you post some interesting stuff from time to time. But this ain't it.

    These fugging people at Walmart, and other industrialists, are thinly veiled evil. Why are they evil? Because they do shiiite like this, just like this, frequently. Thus putting on display their callous disregard for the others in the human race as well as other creatures who inhabit this planet.

    This, Zach, this is the problem. Want to know why the human race is the scourge of the planet? This, Zach, this right here. Walmart is just like Goldman Sachs in the sense that they are a "vampire squid upon the face of humanity" as so well put by Matt Taibbi.

    I'm not going to tell you to grow a set & get a clue as to where you spend your money. Nor would it be my place to say to you that your reasons for shopping at Walmart are mere window-dressing for a lack of ethics. And I certainly would never say to a person with your value system that you lack backbone and thus are part of the problem for the dwindling remainder of the people who still want ethics, who want accountability & who want to end this scurrilous behavior by industrialists like Walmart.

    No, I'll leave it up to someone else to make that judgment.

    I haven't bought gasoline at Exxon since those pricks pulled their Valdez spill. Haven't bought BP since they destroyed our Gulf. I won't buy McDonalds, not only because it's poison, but because McD's are backers of Sea World aka Torture World. It ain't hard, you make your decisions, there are options & choices.

    And here's another example: Gates along with uncle Warren and the rest of the “industrialists” lying all the way down the road. Like the article says, time to take away their free pass.

    Ehhhhhhh?!?!

    Man, wtf is wrong with you buddy. What we need are ethical people in charge of companies. What we don't need are more & more & more laws. Haven't you been watching the movie the past 20 years, Zach? These people who run the proles want two things: more govt and more ability to plunder the planet.

    Because it all adds up to fugg everybody in the name of $$$$.
