Walmart might not want you to see this news story.

ORIGINALLY POSTED Tuesday, April 25, 2006

***NOTE: Comment below changed 06/08/06 - come to find out, Lee was telling the truth - he DIDN'T post it. (I believe people should pay for stuff they DID do, not for stuff they didn't).

Yeah, you're really frightening. In the way an old lady waving her cane is frightening. Hey, why don't you get a real job and stop badmouthing and threatening people on here? Loser...

Damariscotta, Maine, Rejects Wal-Mart and Endorses Size Cap

On Tuesday, voters in the small town of Damariscotta, Maine, overwhelming approved a local law barring stores over 35,000 square feet (about the size of a medium grocery store).
The vote puts an end to Wal-Mart's plans to build a 187,000-square-foot supercenter in this village of just 2,000 people.
The measure was approved by a 62 to 38 percent margin in what officials say may be the largest election turnout in the town's history. More than 1,200 ballots were cast, representing about 80 percent of voters.
Damariscotta has a lively downtown and numerous locally owned businesses, including an 85-year-old grocery store, a pharmacy, bookstore, hardware store, and department store.
There are already three Wal-Mart stores to the north, west, and south of town, each about thirty minutes away. Last year, Wal-Mart announced its intention to further saturate the region by opening a supercenter on the outskirts of Damariscotta.

Walmart & their supporters LOVE playing dirty

So, during a routine check of this blog, I noticed someone had left a comment for one of my recent posts.

DrBear said...

Are you threatening them? I think Homeland Security would be interested.

The person is responding to the following:

"CITY HALL IS GOING TO BECOME A FRICKEN WARZONE!!!!! lol And the agrivate people better leave town in a hurry."

Let's review, shall we? "LOOKS LIKE A WARZONE" Is commonly heard in regards to dizaster areas, or kids rooms (lol). The term "BECOME A WARZONE" is used to denote a scene of chaos or wild behavior (such as a big party).

NOW, the term "LEAVE TOWN IN A HURRY" generally refers to a person or group who are in trouble for wrongdoing or who were caught in the act.

THEREFORE, DRBEAR's comments of "I think Homeland Security would be interested." Could be taken, and in fact very likely IS, an attempt at intimidation in an effort to silence a critic of his crooked friends - be they GANNETT, the city government, or WALMART. Then you also have the deliberate "mountain out of a mole hill" attempt, Claiming I am threatening others to try and cause me needless problems.

Just so everyone will know and be forewarned - Trying to intimidate someone like me is a stupid thing to do. Instead of scaring me, it pisses me off to the point of wanting to kick your a** up into orbit. In other words, if you're thinking of trying it against me....


DrBear has already been warned NOT to do it again, if he does he becomes a direct threat to me - and I attack threats headon, LITERALLY.

Is he REALLY that stupid???

Since he didn't want to hear anything contrary to his brainwashed beliefs, I'll post it here and draw his attention.

MICHAEL FELHOFER, are you brain dead or what??? How exactly do you figure that walmart is not as bad as people say??? Do you REALIZE that YOUR job in banking is ALSO THREATENED by them???? Yes, they are attempting to start their own banking division. And if you believe them when they say "It's for in house credit card transactions only" then you should NOT be on the planning commision! All you need to do is look at their past actions to understand that have the habit of LYING to get what they want! They do not give any thought whatsoever to contaminating the environment, lying, using dishonest tactics(such as dropping their prices below retail to drive all other businesses out), and anything else they dream up - just so long as they squeaze a few more dollars into their corporate pockets!

Consider yourself LUCKY! I don't know about others there last night, but I would have liked nothing better than to jump over that desk and back you into a corner - not only for your attitude but your ignorance as well!

You WILL be getting a CD of information - if you refuse it you will be declared "CITIZEN ENEMY #1" which means your name, address, photo, and more will be posted on wanted posters all around town! I'm not playing your damned yuppie games anymore - we're going to play by working stiff rules. I've HAD IT with people like you who are willing to sell all of us out. Either open your eyes & see what they (walmart) are up to, or prepare to fight.

And if your think WEBER is bad, wait till you face ME!!!

A VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!!

MAN, you should have seen it! 100+ people Marched 2 blocks down the main street towards city hall on both sides of the street! Once they arrived, they began marching around & around the block containing city hall, being led by a guy using a washtub as a drum, pounding in time with chanting such as "This is what democracy looks like", "Just say no!" and "What do we want - SMART GROWTH. When do we want it - NOW!"

Cars going past were honking horns and giving thumbsup signs in support! A camera crew arrived from WFRV channel 5, the local CBS affiliate from green bay, followed by one of their remote "live broadcast" vans(pictures from their footage below)!

The end result??? The city council voted 7-0 to reject walmart's request for anexation! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now there is a planning commision meeting tomorrow night at 7pm, where a big box size cap will be reviewed.

Advocate suppressing info!

Remember when I went down & talked to Knappen about not printing anti walmart letters to the editor? WELL, it seems that I was RIGHT! As the scan of a printout shows, the advocate REFUSED to print an ad showing what is going on.

CITY HALL IS GOING TO BECOME A FRICKEN WARZONE!!!!! lol And the agrivate people better leave town in a hurry.

It is #12 on the agenda. We need to STOP this! McIntosh cares NOTHING about the working class of this city - Are you going to let him and Walmart put you on the unemployment line????
