I contest that the long series of Walmart closings are preparing for civil unrest and it's insult to my intelligence to conceive all closed locations are due to plumbing repairs.

Plumbing problems are a subset of civil unrest. Therefore they aren't mutually exclusive they are symbiotic.

Before anything can really be debated, it must be made clear where both parties stand on the issue. Your implying the plumbing problems are the effect of civil unrest. We've done nothing to Walmarts' bathrooms? You sound excited and enthused to reside at your local concentration camp. Civil unrest hasn't taken affect yet but they are in fact preparing for it obviously. Elaborate further ...... or at all, otherwise I'm arguing with the wall.

Actually I would describe myself as a mirror in regards to this debate, not a wall. But self flattery aside it will suffice to say that those who argue with walls are currently fostering civil unrest. It isn't an insult to your intelligence that Walmart closed stores due to plumbing problems. It is an insult to walls that you argue with them,unless they are walls you are considering buying at WALLmart......now to the point.

The above link might be considered just another brick in the wall, or just another nail in the proverbial coughing or coffin. Of course I am more than willing to entertain your argument of civil unrest if you provide me with 5000 signed statements by civilians that they are organizing because of civil unrest and not because they couldn't use the bathrooms at a closed Wal-Mart and I will concede.
Btw, here's the Pentagon's assessment of current possible locations of civil unrest. Wal-Mart bathrooms weren't closed because of the unrest in these particular "hot seat" locations.

Again I'm contesting the recent closings could no way correlate to faulty pipes on a nationwide scale. All the books you've read in that lonely library don't seem to reflect your intellect in the slightest and hiding behind your corny wall joke makes it all the more apparent. Civil unrest on a mass scale has yet to take place, but Wal-Mart's elite are aware its on the horizon hence the mysterious closings. The wall provided a more stimulating debate as I watched its paint dry. Was hoping for a well rounded discussion, instead caught the receiving end of a 40 year virgins hostility.

Thank you con for being so in touch with civil unrest you offered not one written statement from a civilian that feels unrest building amongst them and their circle of friends. I also noticed you refused to confront the actual CNN announcement that Wal-Mart is currently hiring because closed stores are in the process of being reopened.(plumbing problems fixed) Good news for you as now your job prospects are expanding. You should also be aware that Wal-Mart's employee application process will have a test that might require you to use a 3x5 card for cheating in order to pass the exam. Good luck and remember, civil unrest is an ambiguous claim so no rational person would consider your argument as being provable until there is a particular issue you attributed "civil unrest" to. Protest of young black men being shot by a police officer could be considered civil unrest. That seems to occur frequently here in New Zealand. I also noticed you didn't specify which country is experiencing this unrest and since Wal-Mart is worldwide this left the door open for you claiming any country as being the subject of your contention that civil unrest has been acknowledged as slowly building.

Was referring to the birthplace of Walmart, America! New Zealand only has like 5 of them so the corpoartion is half of the country's economy. Some 60 years ago, New Zealand was the envy of the world.
We had a booming economy, and a happy people with hardly a worry in the world.
What has happened since then? NZs economy has collapsed to the point where it is only Agriculture keeping us afloat. Even this may change as our largest company, Fonterra, is suggesting that it goes public and allows overseas investors to buy into it. The entire public infrastructure that was built up over the life of New Zealand was sold off at bargain prices to the International asset strippers. Now we are in a position where the infrastructure is (has) collapsed and now the NZ Government is required to rebuild it, almost from scratch. NZ Rail, Telecom, Air NZ, etc, etc. The social services sector has suffered very badly over the years. Hospitals have been shut almost everywhere except for the larger cities. We are unable to attract and keep competent doctors and nurses, as we do not have the resources or money to keep them in the county. The educated youth of the country are leaving in droves, and probably will never come back because of the enormous debts that the Government causes students to attach to themselves to get an education. The tax system is such that you are required to hire accountants and tax lawyers just to keep your affairs in order. The compounding interest and draconian attitudes taken by the IRD towards mistakes generated by the small businesses ensures that NZ has one of the highest failure rates for small businesses in the world. In 2006 40,000 Kiwi"s voted with their feet and moved permanently to Australia, and the Government wonders why. In the last 2 decades all the large successful companies have either moved offshore totally or at least a major part of their operations have, and most of our multi-millionaires have departed for greener pastures.

It's an insult to anyone's intelligence to assume that this is because they are preparing for 'civil unrest'...
