I can see how paying people $9 an hour to work is just like trying to eradicate Jews and Gypsies in slave labor camps /sarcasm

Wal-Mart will probably lose. Trademark infringement only if peole would reasonably confuse the two...man is entitled to his stupid, leftist driven satire.

I have no love for Wal-Mart, but this goes a little too far.

Of course, who is Wal-Mart to complain, after their book-burning ads?

This is sheer DEPRAVITY. Anyone who can make, wear, or defend such imbecilic t-shirts belongs in a home for the mentally incompetent (OK, that would apply to much of the Demagogic Party). Many comparisons to the Holocaust are ludicrous and offensive, but this one is so far beyond the bounds of reason that the loony left should finally be shamed into silence. This is like the guy in Florida awhile back who was protesting something trivial and declared to the press, "we won't go silently like the Jews to the gas chambers" or some such nonsense.

"He said if the court sides with him, he will use any profits to pay his legal fees and for continued production of the products. "

He won't need to spend a dime.

ACLU lawyers will be lining up for a chance to be in the Socialists' limelight.

Some folks are just evil. Just what part of the Wal*Mart phenomenon compares to the Holocaust?

Oh, BUMP. What the heck. Their Sam's stores do make you feel like you are in the Gulag. First you check out. Then some idiot at the exit checks your buggy to make sure you aren't stealing anything. On top of that, you have to pay a fee to join the darn thing. I stopped shopping there a few years ago. I felt demeaned.

parsy, who has a teeny bit of pride.

I don't think Wal-Mart has a leg to stand on. Whatever one thinks of the shirts' message, they look to be well within the bounds of legally-protected parody and satire.

I don't think the Smiley Face can be trademarked.

I like the family values line, though...especially the line about firearms as I believe boys bond well with fathers who take them shooting.

The company said Smith is engaging in trademark infringement.

That, and being a jerk.

WalMart may not be perfect (who or what is) but I think this is really a bit over the top.

This so trivializes a real horrific event... I'm almost speechless. Almost.

I'm really glad on reflection, that the other side is so sophmoric.

I'll bet that this modern Don Coyote will take the first cash offer Wally makes.

" ... compare the retailer's business practices to the Holocaust."

Now THAT is offensive. Oh yes it is.

Walmart is just trying to put american companies out of business with Chinese products. This is the Bush/Clinton/Bush America.

I have one word for WalMart "Antitrust".
