Default WalMart Haters

This may be a dupe or you may have already seen this:

READ TO THE END... Interesting set of facts.

Quote:
Wal-Mart vs. Morons:

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 and is the 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 & Safeway
combined, and keep in mind they did this
in only 15 years.

8. During this same period, 31 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 5 Years ago.

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

12. 90% of all Americans live within 15 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:

a.. The U.S. Post 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.

Army,Navy,Air Force,Police,FBI....yeah those are all government failures,too.[sarcasm] I wonder how many people would be dead without Medicare, Medicaid & Social Security. millions? probably. I guess that doesn't matter though when it comes to bashing the government. WalMart treats it's workers like second class citizens.

It seems many of these institutions have been failing for years. So the 'failure' should be addressed to every politician and Gov't official since Carter or Regan; maybe even further back, not just the current administration.

I was at Wal-Mart on Saturday, Their deli is sort of like the DMV in that the employees move slower than molasses and treat you like you wizzed in their corn flakes.

That is the extent of my relevant opinions on this thread.

Sucks for you. Walmart is awesome. But coming from a town with no stop lights going to Walmart was a big deal, like a 30minute ride back in the day haha.
