Equal Rights For Some

Last week, PaddyMac had a quick hit regarding the proposal to build a Walmart Supercenter in Cudahy. His post reads:

Is Wal-Mart really that bad?

Some 100 Cudahyans complained the other night that the rusting hulk of an abandoned ice arena might be replaced with . . . what, a toxic dump? A giant strip club? No, worse: a Wal-Mart Supercenter, the kind that sells groceries. Heaven forfend. "We do not need another outlet for cheap Chinese crap," said one guy who's apparently holding out for expensive Chinese crap. If you don't like Wal-Mart, don't shop there. If your neighbors do like it, who are you to get in the way, pal?

Apparently, to PaddyMac, people only have the right to an opinion if it matches his and/or his corporate buddies. Sorry, Paddy, but this is still America, not Amerika, and everyone can have their own opinion and the right to express it. And why should people that don't want WallyWorld moving into their neighborhood have it shoved down their throats, pal?
