Walmart vs the Morons

This came across my Email box... IMO worth thinking about:

READ THIS TO THE END. IT IS VERY INTERESTING !!!

Wal-Mart vs. The 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, 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.

AND I know what's wrong. We have lost our minds to "Political
Correctness" !!!!!!!!!!!!

Someone please tell me what's wrong with all the people that run this
country!!!!!!
We're "broke" & can't help our own seniors, veterans, orphans,
homeless etc.,?????
In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile , and Turkey..
And now Pakistan ........previous home of bin Laden. Literally,
BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do
they get any breaks...

AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children
going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally
ill without treatment.

Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to
other countries. Sad isn't it?

Interesting how inefficient the US govwrnmwnt has become.

It's not as if the government is not trying its hand at private industry.

We have Solyndra, and Fiskar, and GM, and more. Probably will only cost 100 billion before they are through. Now if we could only get the rich to pay their fair share we could make more of these dandy investments.

I'm old enough to remember when something real simular happened except on a smaller scale, too bad we didn't learn anything from that-or did we? I think there was even a Bush or two involved & it costs the tax payer a good bit. http://useconomy.about.com/od/grossdome ... Crisis.htm

The government was investing in Savings and loans? I thought they were letting them go bankrupt, not bailing them out, but they did bail out depositors.

Yes there were similarities to the Democrat inspired bank debacle in housing that we just had. good thing we have a Fed keeping watch to see prudent bank practices are followed.

Sam you're like a jack in the box toy. You only do one thing and as children grow they quickly tire of you.

Last week you went all the way back to the Civil War to try and blame republicans :D

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garn_-_St_ ... utions_Act

"The bill is named after its sponsors, Congressman Fernand St. Germain, Democrat of Rhode Island, and Senator Jake Garn, Republican of Utah. The bill had broad support in Congress, with co-sponsors including Charles Schumer and Steny Hoyer.[3] The bill passed overwhelmingly, by a margin of 272-91 in the House.[4]"

Ya see Dann, you just pointed out the biggest problem we face today, broad support of Congress. Sorry for having to go back in time but at an early age I learned to learn from history instead of making the same mistakes. Your fingers must be pretty well scarred by now, quit touching the hot stove. One would think that with sooooo many lawyers in Congress they wouldn't make that mistake, maybe that's why they all got into politics.

Didn't want another credit card war the first time, no mistake but I'm fairly sure we are going to jump right into another or more if Romney gets in, most likely already promises been made. Let's try something different & have those making over $250k a year send their sons & daughters to the next one since they make the profits from it. The economy was already toast no matter who got in, I don't think anyone knew just how bad the recession would be. Been affected by a more localized recession before (rust belt) there were other parts of the country going strong & hiring, not so this time around, the Pittsburgh still hasn't recovered from the 80s, it always takes longer to climb out than fall in. From what I see of the GOP I'll stick with Obama for 4 more at least I know what I have & I won't be paying more of the wealthys taxes for them.

x2 on this....... Obama really had done nothing for this country .....BUT when Romney picked Ryan i was out..... Ryan is just another Rick Santorum in my book... all we need is a couple of people with common sense in the white house and Romney and Ryan don't have enuf to fill a pickle jar between the 2 of them
