Wal-Mart vs The Morons of Washington


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.

The MORONS of Washington:

To all 535 voting members of the Legislature: It’s now official, you are all MORONS:

A. The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775. You have had 235 years to get it right and it is broke.

B. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 75 years to get it right and it is broke.

C. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 72 years to get it right and it is broke.

D. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 46 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 45 years to get it right and they are broke.

F. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 40 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 33 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.


Folks, all I ask is that you REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER. Vote ‘em ALL out, and come 2012, we take out the rest of the garbage and set this nation back on an even keel!

    Wal-Mart is a great example of what capitalism can do if it is left pretty much alone by government.

    Bureaucratic arrogance was kept at bay until 1930, at which time the feds thought they knew better than the private sector how to fix a recession. The Great Depression was the result.

    God help us, we’re making those same mistakes all over again.

    If Wal-Mart doesn’t have it, you don’t need it. Well, there is an exception as they don’t sell handguns yet but they do have long guns and the cheapest handgun ammo around.

    If I need it and Wal-Mart doesn’t have it, I’m screwed!

    1. And what’s that definition of insanity, again — ?

    2. Perhaps — d’ya think — it’s time to TRY something ELSE?

    3. How about MINIMIZING or ELIMINATING welfare so that people are actually COMPELLED to WORK? There should only be welfare for the gravely physically/mentally disabled. I don’t mind paying to assist the blind, the retarded, those with physical infirmities.

    Everyone else: there are lots of jobs. CHOOSE one.

    And finally: if you want my money, I expect some WORK from you. My highways look like crap. Clean them. My communities need graffiti removed. Remove it. My neighborhoods need fields cleared. Clear them. My outlying areas’ farmers need crops picked. Pick them. And so on.

    I love the way BZ thinks!!!!!!!

    if the welfare bums were made to work for their checks,
    there would be far less need for illegal aliens from mexico.
