Wal-Mart Persona Non Grata in L.A.

So Los Angeles has passed an anti Wal-Mart ordinance, I'm shocked, NOT. They say if they let Wal-Mart into L.A. to open more stores that it would cost the city & state something like 86 million dollars in welfare & health care benefits because Wal-Mart is not unionized, but they don't mind shelling out 5 billion a year for illegal alien services. What am I missing here? Nothing except blatant hypocracy by Los Angeles, but I am not surprised. They don't mind paying for all the illegal alien services, that's okay by them, but absorbing a little cost for Wal-Mart is bad. As former congressman Jim Traficant of Ohio used to say, "beam me up Mr Speaker!"
