Wal-Mart vs. Government 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 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 filed for bankruptcy.

9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 U.S. stores, 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 our Congress -- It is now official you are ALL corrupt morons:

a.. The U.S. Postal 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.

WikiLeaks Outrage Misdirected and Intentionally Misdirecting

The powers that be are using the full range of their propaganda tools in an all out campaign to gin up a public lynch mob mindset against WikiLeaks and its founding leader, Julian Assange, for having made public an enormous trove of sordid information they were trying to keep from ever seeing the light of day.

The campaign is a diversion. Its purpose is to get people to focus on the supposed sins of WikiLeaks and Mr. Assange and thus to divert their attention from the corrupt, deceitful, brutal, and criminal conduct that has been shown to have become our government's standard operating procedure.

All of this is spelled out in -- surprisingly, of all places --  Salon, in this detailed account.

It's a must to read and think about.

Also not to be missed is the second part of the article, in which the author goes on to point out how our government, in keeping with the normal practice of authoritarian regimes, is increasingly keeping its activities secret from the nation's citizens and, at the same time, gathering hordes of information about each and every one of us for whatever uses and purposes it may decide to use the collected data against any of us in the future.

An additional point that needs to be noted is the financial stress that has been brought to bear against WikiLeaks and Mr. Assange by the big -- and incidentally government beholden -- bank credit card payment processors. They all have decided, supposedly independently, to stop processing payments to WikiLeaks and Mr. Assange. Another surprise is that The New York Times, in this editorial, has noted the dangers to our freedoms that this action portends as any publication, any enterprise, any group, or any individual disfavored by our rulers could be similarly cut off at the financial knees.

A Day With The Times

After a pleasant hiatus of a fair number of years, I on Sunday read through the day's edition of The New York Times . . . , and boy, was it ever a hoot. By the time I was done my head was spinning with the amazing knowledge and ideas that I had acquired.

The most important thing I gleaned from my renewed exposure to what once was the nation's great newspaper of record is that we have, and are suffering from a surfeit of people who have been educated beyond their respective capacities. They staff and have seized control of most of our governmental, academic, and media institutions. When not engaged in their usually pursuits in those institutions -- most of which inflict various kinds and degrees of harm on our society -- they spend inordinate amounts of time and effort claiming and celebrating their status as superior beings and congratulating and honoring themselves and one another.

Explicit reports in the paper informed me that:

*  The record breaking cold, blizzards, and snow and ice storms that the North American and European continents are experiencing all are due to global warming.

*  It is going to be necessary for the federal government to bail out the nation's biggest (and biggest spending) states because they have squandered their way into bankruptcy. No mention is made of the fact that this means that  tax paying residents of states that have managed their financial affairs relatively prudently now are supposed to chip in and pay for the goodies that they have done without but that the profligate states have provided for their residents.

Screw the Nervy Islamic Hypocrites

Here is a Christmas Eve news report:

Imam to tour nation promoting NYC Islamic center

From Associated Press
December 24, 2010 6:52 PM EST

NEW YORK (AP) — The Muslim cleric who hopes to build an Islamic center near the World Trade Center site said Friday that he'll tour the country in an effort "to inspire interfaith understanding" for a project that has ignited explosive faceoffs between supporters and opponents.

"The major purpose is to make people aware of what America means as a country that protects the right to freedom of religion," Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf told The Associated Press.
American Muslims like himself, he said, "can play an important role as interlocutors between the United States and the Muslim world."

If the imam really wants to "inspire interfaith understanding" he would better spend his time touring the Islamic world and suggest that his coreligionists there permit Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, etc., to practice their faiths and establish their places of worship  there. While he is at it, he might even suggest that non Muslims foolish enough to wish to do so be permitted to visit Mecca and that the faithful in Iraq stop killing Christians and other non Muslims there.  

Absent such changes in the Islamic world,  interfaith understanding is and will remain a fraud . . . a one way scam.

Unless and until the supposedly moderate imam is prepared to, and does promote such changes among his fellow Muslims in their homelands he and his proposed 9/11 ground zero Islamic center can just pound sand. And as the Middle East hellholes in which the Islamic crazies and craziness originated have sand in abundance, wouldn't it be a wonderful blessing if they would just go back and pound it there?

Government Killing Its Own?

Our Border Patrol, Janet Incompetano, the Obama administration and their policy dictates facilitated and therefore are complicit in the shooting death of a border patrol agent if there is anything to this account of how the agent died. Furthermore, according to the apparently credible report, the authorities (our rulers) are trying to cover up how they rendered the agent helpless to be murdered. It appears that his 'superiors' restricted the agent to firing only beanbags against the killers who were shooting real bullets at him.

An Impertinent But Important Question

Having school cafeterias serve healthy food, eschewing junk goodies and serving only nonfattening and health enhancing stuff, might be a good idea. Perhaps its even a great one. 

But where in the the Constitution, pray tell, is there anything that gives the federal government the power to mandate schools throughout the nation to do any such thing? Can't we trust the citizens on local school boards to decide what is best for students in their communities?

Doesn't anyone care about such questions anymore? 

President Obama clearly does not. He just signed another nanny state piece of legislation. This one empowers the federal government to dictate what can and what cannot be served in school cafeterias everywhere in the U.S.

Sad But True

Government's Latest Shamefully Dishonest Scam

If you have any illusions that there is or ever was any substance behind Obama's proclamation of a freeze on pay increases for already overpaid employees of the federal government, take a look at this report, which exposes and provides details of that public relations ploy as a total political sham.
