Wal-Mart lifestyles

[ #11207 ]
This is just scary:

Wal-Mart Opens First 'All You Can Live' Township

My favourite sentence is "It's a 21st century horn-of-plenty, all for one no-fuss monthly fee", which sounds like a curious blend of marketing talk and methamphetamines. Not to mention the somewhat ghoulish possibility of RFID tags in everything in your house, and the Big Brother-sounding allocation of "friend and family minutes". You thought paying by the minute for a cellphone was bad, imagine having to bundle Granddad out of your suburb because you're out of Wal-Mart life minutes?

I don't want to live in a town run by Wal-Mart. I want to live in a town run by Fry's, where you can eat all the electronics you want for a flat monthly fee!
