    "Wal-Mart won't sell Ronda Rousey's new book because she's too violent."

    "Walk into any Wal-Mart in the United States and you can easily purchase any combination of high-caliber rifle with accompanying ammunition. However, if you’re looking to purchase a book by a former Olympic medalist and current undefeated world champion, you will have to look somewhere else.

    The superstore giant announced earlier this week that it would not be carrying UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey’s upcoming book — scheduled for release on May 12 — in stores due to the fact that she’s too violent."


    “I’m shocked, shocked to discover that censorship is going on in America!” said publisher Judith Regan of Regan Arts to Page Six.

    Do they sell the Bible? I hear there's a little bit of violence in it, little bit.

    I wonder if their new philosophy will also stop them from selling video games and violent DVDs

    I made the poor decision of buying some fish at Walmart once. The diarrhea it gave me was pretty violent..

    Oh that's weird. Why did it autolink Walmart?

    Will it do the same with Target? Kmart? Hustler?

    Another obviously leftist 'journalist' who is anti 2nd amendment. An apples and oranges comparison meant to demonize firearms. The point could have been made by comparing the book to other media that WalMart sells. Where can a person find 'just the facts' news? I don't have anything witty to say. End rant.

    Wal Mart has the same right to make this decision as the bakery has to make about the gay cake.

    Judith Regan had her colon irrigated by Dr. Roni at Robin's house.

    I'd like to irrigate Rhonda Rousey's colon, with my semen and urine, in a Days Inn.
