Wal-Mart vs Federal Government

Walmart-Congress1. 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 and ineffective:

a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 237 years to get it right and it is broke.

b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 77 years to get it right and it is broke.

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

d. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 48 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 47 years to get it right and   they are broke.

f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 42 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 35 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??

    Walmart is a predatory crony “captitalist” fraud. The amount of $$ they get from my household ( emergency) would not buy a minute of their electricity.

    They counsel all new employees on how to apply for food stamps, and every possible government assistance, rather than pay people a living wage.

    They “invented” the 28 hour work week so as not to pay fulltime benefits whenever possible…to an overwhelming majority of their feudal serf employees.

    Their cash registers are connected to CHINESE production facilities so the CHINESE can replinish inventories based on recorded sales. They should wave a flag of China in front of every store.

    And here is a very personally experienced anecdote – I have been associated with the transportation business for many years. One company in which I served in management capacity experienced this – We agreed upon a trailerload price to deliver commodities, conditional to be paid in 15 days with WM. The first few months, they paid on time. Then it would slip to 20 days……….then 25……then 30, and on and on.

    Our per-trailer price was based on WM agreement to keep our cash flow fluid, not tied up in pending accounts receivables. We would call and inquire, and began to get a B-S runaraound they they had not received certain paperwork, or a signature etc which was delaying payment. Total stall tactics. We confirmed with fellow trucking companies who were being “screwed” the same way.

    It got so bad we just brought all the in-transit loads of merchandise to our yard and parked them. When WM called screaming for their products, we told them when we were paid for every outstanding penny, and paid on delivery for what we had on hand, we would deliver.

    They coughed up very quick $$, and we terminated any and all future business with those predatory thieves and unscrupulous business people. ( All this happened after old man Sam was buried – the kids and descendants are trash with a capital T )

    As a side note,be advised they sell no true honey – only HFCS fake honey, and most meats, produce etc are loaded with GMOs, which they approve. They sold most of the tainted Chinese pet food products which killed hundreds of family pets a few years back. The list is endless.

    You can search for numerous anti- Walmart websites for other ugly details.

    Please do NOT consider them a successful business model – their “success” is based on predatory abuse of the free enterprise system, and they finance more politicians than you can count.

    They sell food not fit for pigs, and treat their employees like feudal serfs on the plantation.

    Go ahead and shop there and continue to finance your own destruction.

  2. Can’t disagree with anything Senator_Blutarsky had to say in his critique of Walmart, but it doesn’t take away any of the importance of what was said in comparing Walmart to Uncle Sam. Uncle is so bad that Walmart looks like an Angel in comparison. This should point out that power based in single groups; governments with little attachment to its people or business with no concerns except keeping the share holders happy, is not what America use to stand for. Today none of us can say that it wouldn’t be nice to have a President like Reagan and a Sam Walton back in charge.
