Environmental groups had argued that the store...would erode the local way of life.
Yeah, by raising their standard of living, and by exposing them to new products, new ideas, and new expectations in life. But then we can't have that, can we?
Old crumbling buildings and animals are more important to the liberals than people. Ask the South Africans about that, the Sudanese,etc.etc.etc.

They've been there 2000 years.
I love WalMart, but will that franchise exist in 100 years?
The crumbling ruins will persist.
BTW, when I was 14 I bought some beautiful raw jelly opals and half an ounce of ditch weed on the the top of the Pyramid of the Sun.
I've still got the opals.

Environmental groups had argued that the store was too close to the ruins and would erode the local way of life.
People should be free to live in destitute poverty, but not free to shop at Wal-Mart? I don't get it. The environmentalist offer another telling peek into their disgusting souls on this one. Their argument is against progress, not saving the environment.

Isn't it a little late to be beotchin' about it NOW? The Wally World is open, for cryin' out loud!
Environmentalists????? For God's sake! The original contruction/environmental distruction occurred thousands of years ago. If the eco-wackos had been there then, they would have been sacrificed to the Aztec Gods.
