Walmart: Watch what you say, watch what you do
Another fine example of corporatism:
Selina Jarvis is the chair of the social studies department at Currituck County High School in North Carolina, and she is not used to having the Secret Service question her or one of her students.
But thatâ€™s what happened on September 20.
Jarvis had assigned her senior civics and economics class â€œto take photographs to illustrate their rights in the Bill of Rights,â€ she says. One student â€œhad taken a photo of George Bush out of a magazine and tacked the picture to a wall with a red thumb tack through his head. Then he made a thumbâ€™s down sign with his own hand next to the Presidentâ€™s picture, and he had a photo taken of that, and he pasted it on a poster.â€
According to Jarvis, the student, who remains anonymous, was just doing his assignment, illustrating the right to dissent.
But over at the Kitty Hawk Wal-Mart, where the student took his film to be developed, this right is evidently suspect.
An employee in that Wal-Mart photo department called the Kitty Hawk police on the student. And the Kitty Hawk police turned the matter over to the Secret Service.Progressive
So, is it WalMart's corporate policy that all its employees are stoolies for Bush, or just those in the photo department?
