Talking Way to go WalMart!!!

Well, in some unnamed location, there is a WalMart that has a back to school advertising campaign going in the Sporting Goods Department!! Some of the good shoppers say that they are "outraged" at the placement of back to school signage in let's say a less than desirable location!

If your kid goes to school on the lower side of Chicago, it just might be the only way to make it to the end of the school year alive. Toss in a bullet proof back pack and your kid is ready attend class in Thug Prep School, a.k.a. Tupac Shakur Memorial High School. And that's high as in stoned!!

Rush down to your local Wally World and just look for this sign!!

Obviously, Wally World is expecting to get Albert Einstein to work for them for $7.00 an hour, part time. Instead, they got exactly what they paid for......A MENTAL MIDGET!!! I don't care who you are, this is funny!!

Let's be honest. Who should be offended? US older generations. In our day, who wouldn't have loved a new squirrel/deer/bird gun for back-to-school. They were in every catalog that came to the house, hardware store....

And now we are supposed to be offended.

I am, just not for the reason they would like.

I think that's hysterical and I'm not going to fake being appalled. It's yet another indictment of our educational system!

I couldn't have said it better myself.....

The "Pussyfication of America" is growing and all I can say is "God bless our children & grandchildren" because they will be the one's living here when we're all gone.

With campus carry allowed for state 4 year colleges as of Aug 1 last year, and also for state 2 year colleges as of Aug 1 this year, maybe that Wally World Store is somewhere here in Texas and someone strategically placed the signage accordingly

There are people out there whose job is looking to be offended.

If we do not get serious about restoring our democracy and living closer adherence to the constitution our grandchildren will be growing up under a different flag!
