So it goes, it would seem, with Wal*Mart:
As we documented in our Special Report titled Wal-Mart Embraces Controversial Causes: Bid to Appease Liberal Interest Groups Will Likely Fail, Hurt Business, the company’s management has steered the company to the political Left under the guidance of Edelman public relations firm. With the public now turning against the very ideas that Edelman counseled Wal-Mart to embrace, it is no surprise that the company would seek to limit our ability to communicate with other shareholders.
I supported Wal*Mart when they set a goal, before it was popular to do so, to sell a certain huge number of fluorescent light bulbs. I haven't been with them on this push to stop using plastic grocery bags, nor have I been with the company on "cap and trade" and health care legislation.
Wal*Mart should get out of politics and leftism and should stick to what it does best, which used to be to deliver convenience and low costs to its customers.
