Anti-Wal-Mart warriors fueling class warfare
Concord Monitor ^ | 9/16/06 | George Will

Liberal campaign hurts people who need bargains

Evergreen Park, Ill., a suburb contiguous with Chicago's western edge, is 88 percent white. A large majority of the customers of the Wal-Mart that sits here, less than a block outside Chicago, are from the city, and more than 90 percent of the store's customers are African-American. One of whom, a woman pushing a shopping cart with a stoical 3-year-old along for the ride, has a chip on her shoulder about the size of this 141,000 square-foot Wal-Mart. She applied for a job when the store opened in January and was turned down because, she said, the person doing the hiring "had an attitude."

So why is the woman shopping here anyway? She looks at the questioner as though he is dimwitted and directs his attention to the low prices of the DVDs on the rack next to her.

Sensibly, she compartmentalizes her moods and her money. Besides, she should not brood. She had lots of company in not being hired: More than 25,000 people applied for the 325 openings.

Which vexes liberals like John Kerry. (He and his helpmeet last shopped at Wal-Mart when?) In 2004 he tested what has become one of the Democrats' 2006 themes: Wal-Mart is, he said, "disgraceful"and symbolic of "what's wrong with America."

By now, Democrats have succeeded, to their embarrassment (if they are susceptible to that), in making the basic numbers familiar: The median household income of Wal-Mart shoppers is under $40,000. Wal-Mart, the most prodigious job-creator in the history of the private sector in this galaxy, has almost as many employees (1.3 million) as the U.S. military has uniformed personnel.

A McKinsey company study concluded that Wal-Mart accounted for 13 percent of the nation's productivity gains in the second half of the 1990s, ...

Low prices, but always to packed to grocery shop. We grocery shop at Kroger or Schnucks instead.

Kerry: Voters now more receptive to his message

Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry said at the outset of a trip to Iowa today that the nation’s voters are more open now than two years ago to the message he campaigned on as the 2004 Democratic nominee for president.

Although a decision about whether he will mount a second bid for the White House is “down the road,” conditions in the country have worsened since his narrow loss to President Bush, he said in a telephone interview.

“I think the American people can understand I lost to a lie about Iraq and lie about me personally,” Kerry said while en route to Iowa. “I think people will say, Kerry was right about the war, he was right about health care, he was right about energy policy.

“I think people wouldn’t mind having a president who knows how to get it right,” he added.

Kerry planned to headline a state legislative fundraiser in Indianola this evening before attending events Saturday in Iowa City, Waterloo and Cedar Rapids.

The trip is his fifth since the 2004 election to Iowa, which is scheduled to kick off the 2008 presidential nominating campaign.

Since the 2004 election, Kerry has remained a vocal critic of the Bush administration, especially regarding its handling of the war in Iraq. In July, he co-sponsored a bill with Democrat Russ Feingold of Wisconsin that called for U.S. troops to be out of Iraq by next summer. The bill was soundly defeated.

Last week, Kerry gave a speech in Boston laying out a plan for U.S. security. It centered on pulling troops out of Iraq and redeploying some to Afghanistan where, he says, the threat posed by terrorists is greater.

“Iraq is not the center of the war on terror,” he said Friday. “Afghanistan is in greater trouble today and we ought to be redeploying our forces in a way that helps us properly fight this war.”

Republicans in Iowa, where Kerry lost in 2004, characterized the criticisms as “inaccurate.”

“Iowans re-elected President Bush because they have confidence that he will do what is necessary to maintain the safety and security of our country,” said Sarah Sauber, spokeswoman for the Republican Party of Iowa.

'Mason City Democrat John Stone said Kerry would have won, but for attacks by a group of veterans who ran ads attacking his record as a Naval officer in Vietnam and his criticism of the war afterward.

Class warfare as every warfare requires two sides. The pressure to lower wages or "cost of labor" in order to increase profits is also a form of class warfare.

Wal-Mart's marketing is based on the public perception that it's prices are less than other retail stores. Quality is not pushed by Wally World as a marketing concept. The truth is that WM's food prices are higher in many cases than other local merchants. Bargain shoppers, if they are astute, will soon learn other merchants offer a more pleasant shopping experience with lower prices. For example, Target stores, often have lower prices and a better environment. Wal-Mart is getting a lot of bad publicity today because of very low wages. But people are more incensed by the company's attitude about health benefits. About 70% of WM employees (and their children) are dependent upon upon government for Medicare or Medicaid.

Can Wal-Mart and our trade-deficit with China be traced to the Ozark Caligula administration's decision to allow our satellites to head up in space via China rockets(Lorel)? As an adolescent in the 70's and 80's, I never heard of Wal-Mart until the 90's. It was always K-Mart, etc. I personally don't shop at Wal-Mart.

Not speaking for the DUmmies but where I live we have a fine alternative to stuff from off-Island. Capitalism, as it is practiced in these United States, panders to DUmmies their market. Capitalism, to be a force for good, must include the intelligently greedy in its market, otherwise it is mere commercialism (q. v., W7NCD not some post-modern version dictionary).

Yes, I am. You heard it here first. There are some very good DVDs out there telling the truth. In one of them the CEO is bragging about low wages and putting health care costs on the government.

There is a Wal-Mart Supercenter around 15 miles from us. The prices are so much lower than the local grocery stores and a wider variety! Their produce and meat departments are excellent too. The folks who work there are friendly and very helpful.Just my experience, of course. I refuse to buy at Target any more than necessary. Their lack of community values and higher prices irk me. :)

I manage to do coupons and specials and rob the local grocery store every week, so traveling to the nearest Wal-Mart for groceries isn't something I do...but in my experience, grocery stores in inner cities are way over-priced and if people can travel to a Wal-Mart and find lower prices, good for them.

That 70 percent is a complete and total fabrication.

They included in the 70 percent uninsured by Wal Mart young people who still were insured by their parents, people who work there as a 2nd job and are insured at their FT job and people who are married and covered by their spouses which covers a high percentage of those uninsured by Wal mart. Also PTers who are ineligible to be insured as they would at 90 percent of companies.

Union stoolie you probably are.

What gets me is the morons who actually think unions want to help Wal Mart workers. NO THEY WANT THEIR DUES!

Around here, the lowest prices for food are found at WinCo. Prices are about 25% cheaper than WM. WinCo is 100% employee owned. The best prices for drugs and general sundries are offered by Bi-Mart (another employee owned store). CostCo and WM are about the same price. Target stores in Oregon are much cleaner and offer a better shopping experience than WM.

But why let a good lie get in the way of bashing a large company right?

I guess you would be happy when the unions come in and take over walmart huh?

Got proof for that one too?

WM sells 20% of the groceries sold in the country. The average grocery shopper at WM saves 17% over shopping elsewhere.

OK, that's fair enough, we all have to adjust our lives to our local conditions.

What threw me off was you quoting what I assumed to be nation average assertions about the number of WM EEs who needed welfare etc.

Are those numbers unique to your local area, or are they national numbers?

WinCo 25% cheaper than WM? They'll be bankrupt soon. That's impossible. There is a razor-thin profit margin on groceries.
Are you sure you don't mean that, for instance a house brand can of vegetables is 25% cheaper than a name brand at WM?
I enjoy reading your housing bubble threads, but now you've cast a lot of doubt on their veracity.
Respectfully yours,
Frank

That lady who didn't get hired is an idiot...

I remember reading about the many applicants at the ev park store, and if they hired only 325 out of 25,000, I would guess many of them would be ticked standing in line without any chance of getting hired.

I used to work on 95th Street near Western on the Chicago Side. The mall there was a cesspool of gang bangers, crime, etc.....

That is what the south side, excluding Mt. Greenwood, brought you.

The attitude was probably from the applicant in this case. Of course she then goes to wal-mart to shop anyway.

And the walmart near me has no shortage of BMW's, Merecedes, and big fat SUV's on any day of the week, IMHO.

Oh well, I guess the communist unions have to continue their rants while the rest of the USA contuines supporting our economy.

BTW - No one is forced to ever work at WalMart. They volunteer to apply, get it, they made a choice.

And if it is so bad to work there, why do they stay.

Why don't they apply somewhere else like target, or Costco after they have some experience then?

Why can't walmart employees share that responsibility of making a choice of applying and working there, as well as choosing which benefits to accept ro use?

I'll tell you why, becuase it dilutes the rants and raves of communists and unions who would rather drag the workforce down with them, IMHO.

My mother is a Democrat in OK. She USED to be a very conservative Democrat. Okies used to be all conservative Dems. Now they are a red state. Most of the conservative Dems switched parties. Now she talks bad about Christians and religion. And she still goes to church every Sunday. The Dem party has her so screwed up that it is hard to talk to her. She believes every LIE they tell. She believes there is a Social Security Lock Box, etc.

Yep, first hand knowledge of that. My mother (in OK) is appalled at the idea of abortion. She is very conservative and Christian, but she grew up believing the democrats are the party of the little people.

In fact, they are the party of keeping the people little. The dems never pose any solutions to helping people out of poverty, just throwing them a few crumbs whilst keeping them in poverty.

Yes, more or less. Most Wal-mart/Sam's Club employees are part-timers, not eligible for benefits. Like me, they took the job knowing what the score was. If they really wanted benefits, they could have kept looking for a job that provided them.

I just got back from a trip to Bentonville, Arkansas, home of Wal-Mart, where I met with a number of folks from that company. I was inspired not so much by the people I met as by the story of Wal-Mart itself, so I bought Sam Walton's autobiography, Made in America, published way back in 1992 as he lay dying of cancer.

If that tale is to be believed, and it DOES come across as pretty credible, then Sam Walton built Wal-Mart on some very basic, even simplistic principles: buy your goods at the cheapest possible price, cut your margins, and sell your products cheaper than your competitors. "The less you charge, the more you make."

Wal-Mart is the perfect example of a better mousetrap.

What the Dems hate about it is that its philosophy is quintessentially capitalistic, and many of its donations go to conservative causes.

Then she's a typical Democrat. They tend to be uninformed, to put it mildly. The media relies on Democrats to buy their totally left-biased "news" papers, and watch their completely biased TV "news", and pay to see movies which are nothing but left-lunatic propaganda.

The Democrat/Jackass Party continually spreads deliberate lies to fuel class warfare, to undermine capitalism and freedom. The Democrats are anti-American neo-Stalinists.
