Censorship and Wal-Mart

There are many things I dislike about Wal-Mart. Here is a brief list:

  1. The long lines.
  2. Out of 40 registers, only 10 are ever open at one time.
  3. The general stupidity of many Wal-Mart employee's
  4. Censorship of their music CD's.
Why does Wal-Mart feel the need to edit an artists work before making it available to their customers? If they don't agree with the content, than they shouldn't sell it in their stores! When I was a teenager I bought the Spider-Man soundtrack, a cd which was not deemed explicit by the RIAA. The most profane word found in the entire cd is "shit," which Wal-Mart found the need to edit out before selling it to me. I can't stress enough, how ripped off I felt. If I wanted the radio version of songs, I would have made a fucking mixed tape while listening to the radio.

I hate censorship... If you don't like a few foul words in a song, don't buy the cd. There are many people who are capable of realizing there are worse things in the world than a few naughty words.

Here is the best form of censorship, don't buy what you don't want, and on top of that, monitor what the hell your children are listening to. If there weren't so many shitty parents, there wouldn't be a need for censorship. Monitor what your children are doing, rather than allowing a corporation like Wal-Mart to do it for you. If people weren't buying the crap, Wal-Mart would stop butchering music. Unfortunately people are idiots, hence, Wal-Mart feels obliged to watch out for everyone's moral integrity.

That is totally true. I don't get what is so great about wal-mart. All you get there is the long lines, the unhelpful workers, and people who don't speak english.

And don't forget the inconvenient parking. Have you noticed how any spot within 100 yards of the door is handicap? I have never seen so many handicap spots in my life, nor have I seen so many open...
