Morons running Congress.

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 8.5 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 groundwork for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the Government.

This should be read and understood by all American's Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

To the 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 244 years to get it right and it is broke.

b. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 84 years to get it right and it is broke.

c. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 81 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.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 49 years to get it right and it is broke.

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.


IF you 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 the HELL'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 few months, we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey And now Pakistan previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!! (And you can't agree to a simple $5B for a wall to help keep us safe?!!!)

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 - etc, etc.

And the CRAZIES in California want to give "free" medical care to illegal aliens.

My friends, nothing is "free". You and me, the working Americans will be taxed to pay for this giveaway!!

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

You got that right. The only bright spot for me personally is due to my health and age. I'm on borrowed time. But I feel sorry for the rest of you. My being a big tax payer and the government hasn't figured out how to tax the dead (YET), guess who will have to make up their loss. Sorry but it's not my decision. Think it's God's, or an illegal alien after my wallet. Wholly cow, I'm a sitting duck.

Eye opening: However; politicians care about getting re-elected and that is it. The left has done a good job of slowly eroding pride in one's country and a belief in a higher power so only self remains.

Walmart is already running the country. That is why they are all billionaires and we subsidize their workers with food stamps.

The GOP in an effort to destroy the post office in favor of fed ex and UPS, mandated that the post office fund their retirement plan so far in advance that they could never show a profit,

Social Security was robbed by the politicians, and they refuse to make a few simple changes like raising the threshold, that would fix the problem. But the GOP does not want it fixed.

Somehow liberals seem to forget their politicians are owned by someone. What about the contributions from tech? Those giants support Democrats almost exclusively.

Interesting math you have there. 36,000,000 ÷ 1440 (minutes in a day) = 25,000, you claim that 20,928 of that is pure profit. So, using your assumption, retailers mark up their wares by over 500%? You have never ran a retail outfit have you? I can assure you, the typical retail markup is NOT 500% over wholesale. Typical retail markup fluctuates greatly with many factors, but standard rule of thumb is typically around a ±100% markup. You don't become the largest discount retailer by jacking your prices up well beyond standard markup.

For the sake of making the math easier for everyone, let's assume that the result of 36m ÷ 1440 is 25k and that OP's assumed ppm was 20k not 20,928. The 25k figure is how much money comes into Walmart's possession every minute (Assuming the 36m per day figure is accurate) which breaks down to 25k per minute being acquired by Walmart every minute on the average, of that 25k per minute, the OP assumes that 20k of that is profit, which means that Walmart burned through 5k worth of merchandise (wholesale value). Assuming wholesale value of 5k and total sales of 25k making 20k profit, that would be a 500% markup or 80% of total sales is pure profit. Walmart would not be a discount retailer with that kind of markup would they?

Could you provide a source for you information mr. mr.? I would like to look over their figures.

It's called free enterprise! It's also called Good management! Unlike Sears or Pennys.
Your indoctrination of communism forbids making money, yes I know that.

Yes, Social Security was robbed and robbed by your hero Linden B Johnson, cool move, took all money
and spent in on his War on Poverty, which never did crap for any poor person. And you support them, lol.

Now if Walmart was running America we would not be in debt to the number that is hard to type, 21 Trillion. is that 20 zeros?
