Revised: Our Government Vs. Walmart….Why is Anger So Misplaced?

 I resurrected this old email from one of  my two  friends named Tom B. I am not computer literate enough to fully convert it. Oh well.
It strikes me that our anger as a nation is truly misplaced. WalMart does well but you can get protesters out to complain about it almost at the drop of a hat. Yet the real waste and incompetence is in Washington, but too many millions feel we “need” Washington. Don’t even start on California, which has lots of folks who hate WalMart AND want to tax carbon, unionize baby sitters, found new departments, raise taxes and lower productivity.
We once lionized the type of people who founded businesses like WalMart, Penney’s and Sears. Now we carp about their wages, scorn their recycling programs and complain about the quality of the product.
Meanwhile, we are approaching the latest debt ceiling, running a deficit,  and facing at least three bubbles. In the face of this we are continuing to make employment difficult, inflate the currency, raise taxes increase spending and open the borders. The email was written in the run-up to the health care “reform” bill which we still haven’t had sense enough to kill.
Here is Tom’s comment on the original mail, followed by the missive:
Running a government is not the same as running a “for profit” business, but the “skill sets”, like basic common sense and intelligence, are the same…I still enjoy analogies like this!  If it makes you mad, you might want to ask yourself why.

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 you are ALL corrupt morons:
a. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.b.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 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.f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 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 32 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.

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM   ?? MAYBE WE OUGHT TO KICK  YOUR EGG-HEAD BUDDY BUMS OUT OF OFFICE AND HIRE WAL MART TO RUN THE GOVERNMENT ???WAL MART SEEMS TO KNOW HOW TO RUN A BUSINESS…….

    Um, I leave this post wanting to give Wal-Mart a job application instead of starting my own business.
