    Wal-Mart vs. The Morons


    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2609116/posts



    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 16 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.


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

    To all government leaders, past and present...

    But after the ChiComm "Piano Man" incident at the White House, I've decided to never shop at WalMart again.

    My wife and I go to multiple local businesses that sell the same things "Wally World" does. In fact, there's an Amish run store only 20 minutes further where about 90% of what they sell is cheaper than Wally World. Thankfully, we live here in the middle of Pennsylvania "Cow Country" so we can get fresh produce too.

    I'm doing more and more shopping on line as well.

    The US postal service has a 96%+ funded pension system few companies and no other govt agancy can say this.

    And SS in fine for a few more decades. The only problem is that our current govt does not want to pay back the money they "borrowed" from SS.

    Medicare has lower administrative costs than most commercial insurers.

    Seems they had plenty of money before Bush and the Republicans took total control of the government.

    I do as little shopping at wal mart as possible myself. I think it's shameful the way that 90% of everything you'll find on their shelves is "made in china." But, you still can't take away credit for how profitable they are. Compared to our government, they're a shooting star, and our government is a old, dried cow pie.

    There's an Amish store about twenty miles from me too, and they have some excellent things for sale, and the produce. But, I have a huge garden in the summer and rarely need to buy store produce from anywhere, and I NEVER buy groceries at wal mart, ever.

    I attempted to send you a private message Pale Ride, in an effort to save you from public humiliation. However, as the coward you are, you will not accept PM's. I'm not surprised.
    You suggested in a post to me that you have three times more education than I do; I explained I've earned a BA from CAL and an MA from SF St. University. I pointed out that your use of language, grammar and syntax and over use of profanity and personal attacks suggest an educational level of the no more than the 8th grade.
    I also suggested that my experience leads me to believe you are less intelligent and more cowardly than the usual punk cuffed and caged in the back of a Crown Victoria.
    Thought you might like to know.
