I'm from the government and I'm here to help you! Yeah!!!!

Wal-Mart

1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world's largest private employer, and most speak English.

6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.

8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth's population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.

You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

This should be read and understood by all Americans Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,

It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:

a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.

b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke. c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.

d.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more.

e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.

f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.

g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM ??

Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our "duly elected' (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.

They forgot that ridiculous War on Drugs that was started in the 80’s is a complete failure! Thanks Nancy and her “Say no to drugs” nonsense.

It’s well known that government cannot run an enterprise. You need business people to run a business.

Well, at least try to get the facts right.

Nixon started the WO(S)D in 1971 and exactly what part of “Say no to drugs” is nonsense? Really, telling kids not to use drugs is far different than the core tenants of the misguided WO(S)D and is, if nothing else, the appropriate thing to tell children.

You can blame the WO(S)D on Nancy Reagan if you want, but you sound retarded when doing so.

Excuse you. First of all if you had any sense at all than you would know that I grew up in the 80’s and if you think the reason I did not try drugs is because of Nancy Reagan than I have wonder about your so called brilliance. My parents are the ones who influenced me not some politician’s wife. A Republican who got fired from his job is the one who started a big government program? And your trying to impress me?????? ROTFLMAO! I find that sad that you are bragging about Dick Nixon who did not finish due to Watergate is the one who started a huge government program. I am not impressed!!!!!!!!!!!

Chicago Labor wins! ....UPDATE: Union shift opens door for Walmart’s expansion
By Jonathan Birchall in New York

Published: June 28 2010 20:30 | Last updated: June 28 2010 20:30

In 1982, Mr Walton personally campaigned against the first attempt to organise Walmart warehouse workers and truck drivers by the Teamsters union. After winning the dispute, he told employees: “We will never need a union if we work with and for one another and keep listening to each other.

The union switched to its current broader political campaign against Walmart, and since 2008 has been lobbying Congress and the Obama administration for labour law reform....the company embraced a new role as a leader in environmental sustainability efforts, a position that has also broken up the informal anti-Walmart alliance between “green” activists and the unions. It further divided its opponents by joining an alliance with the SEIU union on healthcare reform. Remember all those Stern visits to the White House?

Former Chief Lee Scott has also attempted to reposition Walmart’s corporate reputation, bringing in Leslie Dach, a public relations executive with close ties to the Democrats. Mr Dach now sits on the company’s executive committee, led by Mike Duke, its current chief executive.

Only time..

Tag: Andy Stern

... left his job running the Service Employees International Union with a mess of financial troubles that will end up costing taxpayers dearly. Andy Stern left his former employer saddled with nearly $85 million in debt,pensions underfunded by 68 percent. Those numbers said pale in comparison to this one: $60.7 million. That’s how much the SEIU spent electing Barack Obama. Stern was then appointed to the prestigious debt commission, no one in Washington was surprised...more

Does this mean that they are going to start unions?

Well, the obvious solution here is that they need to tax Wal-Mart more to pay for all those failed government programs listed. < / sarcasm >

As a manager (unpaid of course) of our condo complex, I had to deal first hand with a federal government process. In this case, a survey of a sample of residents. The purpose is to verify residency so as to help qualify the region for more federal funds (that the government does not have).

So riding around in the elevator with I ask: Do you ever knock on a door and say “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” As a joke.

She looked at me puzzled. Never heard the expression before. Did not get it.

Sheds a little light on the disconnect between the taking class and providing class.

LOL.
A retarded statement followed by a paragraph of gibberish?

I can take that nonsenese apart, statement by statement, and find nothing either true or sensible. Nobody cares why you did or didn’t do drugs, but Nancy Reagan’s approach was perfectly sensible.

Whether you like Nixon or not, HE started the “War On Drugs”. If you found that singular bit of FACT to be “bragging”, then your comprehension is as lacking as your logic.

Please, do your research before you start slamming on the keyboard.

A better solution would be to put all the Wal-Mart greeters in charge of the failed government programs and retrain all the incumbents currently in charge of the failed programs to be Wal-Mart greeters.

toe is in the door..look at the upper management now of the company-supports the Democrats..starts in Chicago (of course)..San Diego next? In San Diego, a group of pro-union councilors has called for tighter planning limits on any new store over 90,000 sq ft that sells groceries. In New York, growing speculation that Walmart has a site for a store near JFK airport..same strategy as in Chicago.

Backing by Labor..says something to me.

Walmart claims it it non union but only have to read the new "shift" within the company in 'thinking'.

Walmart was making visits to the White House during the Obamacare reform onset with Stern right there in attendance.

No one gets along unless benefited in some way or paid to do so. Perhaps the kindness of Labor's hearts for the poor living in depressed target areas.. ;)

Then always wonder who owns the "dirt" underneath.

1. "Brilliance" is not defined as knowing what your birthday is.

2. I didn't see any "bragging about Dick Nixon" in the post you attacked.

3. If "some politician's wife" coined a phrase that agreed with your parent's teachings - why should that draw your animosity?

4/a. More to the point, for someone who professes to share Republican views - what's your beef with President, or missus, Reagan?

4/b. Nixon I'll give you part credit, there was a lot not to like and we got Jimmy Carter as punishment.

I don’t like WalMart. Any more it is ‘dictator shopping’ of the very limited products offered. Cheep prices = cheep crap from China and Mexico. I find any more the frustration of fighting the small parking spots and grubby customers to less and less choices on the shelves is not worth my time. The other two stores in my area now get more and more of my because they have choices and brands I want to buy.

You said it!

Say NO was a very simple and effective answer and far preferable to no knock raids on the wrong house, shooting the family pet in front of the 6 year old child, and tasering Grandma to death.
