I am Locutus of WalMart. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

If you think coverage of Hillary Clinton is bad now, just wait till she actually announces her candidacy for President.

Oh, and you’d better get your Hillary Clinton-related domain while you still can.

“Looks to me like the fast food workers would benefit if their bosses could form a union, and the bosses would benefit if the whole industry (including themselves) were unionized.”
