Wal-Mart Vs The Morons

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 236 years to get it right and it is broke.
b. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 76 years to get it right and it is broke.

c. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 73 years to get it right and it is broke.
d. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 47 years to get it right; Still a big problem.
e. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 46 years to get it right and they are broke.
f. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 41 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 34 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.

By the way; since the Eisenhower era there have been over 200 taxes added to our taxpaying citizens so during the times of government run agency’s failures they had more tax money income that ever.

And you took over the Mustang Ranch in Nevada because they didn't pay their taxes, and now it is closed. You could not even run a house of prostitution.



  1. You've got some good points here, Odie!

  2. Amen!

    We actually have a 2nd Walmart Super store being built right now in our town, yay!

  3. Nothing to argue with here, Odie. Well said!

  4. I buy packaged stuff from Walmart, but their produce, bakery and meats are horrible. I go elsewhere for that. I think big business, Wall Street and corporations have been running Washington for many years and have screwed everyone so they can get richer.

    I'd like to see some people in Washington who can't be bribed by political donations but that isn't likely to happen.

  5. As to the Post Office. The electronic age is what ruined them. If they could find a way to make us pay for those bill's we pay online, I'm sure it would have been done by now.
    Some real good questions here.

  6. I agree with you Odie, but I'm troubled by Wal Mart because nearly everything there has been manufactured in China where human rights are not honored. It also means that Americans work less because everything that could be made here is already being made there. So it's not necessarily a celebratory thing that Wal Mart is currently dominating our economy. Wal Mart's success also has a seriously negative impact on our environment. Saving money does not always equal living better.

    But I appreciate the comparison to our government. It's true that politicians are not business people. Their intentions are focused on popularity and we know how shallow that pond is. Our government is a machine bigger than anyone knows how to control.

    Very thought provoking post!
