Mike Rowe & The Wal Mart Kerfluffle   Leave a comment

It’s rare that I ever agree with RedState on anything but on this occasion, I agree with RedState’s John Hayward on the current Mike Rowe/WalMart kerfuffleto wit the ‘controversy’ over Rowe’s recent voiceover of a WalMart ad where they announced their intent to spend $250 billion on American-made goods and services over the next 10 years.

Now, I’m not the sharpest tool in the proverbial toolshed but on this one occasion, I’d like to think WalMart is dead serious on this one; God knows they get enough flak from most of us on the Left yet, to borrow Alanis Morissette’s words, isn’t it ironic that they (Wal-Mart) are now catching flak for wanting to pump $250 freakin’ billion dollars into American manufacturing!

I mean, what the fuck is the Left’s problem on this? I have to ask, partly because this is one of those rare occasions where I actually like what they’re doing and partly because I’ve always thought it was important to build up American manufacturing…or is that only under certain freakin’ circumstances (like, when government spends it)? Tell me that, for crying out loud!

Consider this an open thread, readers.
