corporate dominance | no new sprawlmarts

New Walmart Alert.

Walmart is setting there sights on property just north of Vancouver,WA.
There are already three Walmarts in Vancouver. In my opinion, that's three to many. The sight is located off of 134th street just east of I-205. That's just 3 miles or so north of an existing walmart that is located off of Highway 99. It seems that the nieghborhood isn't in favor of a walmart being built here but the corporations money may trump the desire of people who live here. Hopefully it doesn't get built. Boycott Walmart and let them know they are not welcome here. I'm trying to do a paper on this but without a bias. If anyone has any leads or suggestions, I would like to hear them.
Thanks. nanenonen

The merchandise of gold and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and of fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet and all rare woods and all manner of vessels of ivory, and all manners of vessels of most precious wood, and of brass and iron, and marble and cinnamon, and odors and ointments, and frankinscense, and wine and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and the souls of men.

I hadn't heard anything about a Wal-Mart in Sandy, but folks out here even fought the big new Fred Meyer a few years back. Do you know where the Wal-Mart is proposed, and how far along in the process?
