  •  Walmart is bleeding working Americans (8+ / 0-)

    for every last nickle they can squeeze out of them,
    and yes, taxpayers pick up the bill for it.
    They are the largest employer in the U.S. and are subsidized by the Federal Government, or at the very least their employees are.
    They also ran hundreds of family businesses out of business and destroyed American jobs by outsourcing to China and bleeding every last nickle out of their suppliers.
    All done so that the Walton family can accumulate more billions than 10 generations of their descendants could ever possibly need or spend.

    They are about as un-American as you can get.
    In any sane society, the Walton family would be acknowledged as the twisted, sociopathic, insanely greedy freaks that they are and called out for it.

    But the dumbasses who thought exchanging the American middle class for cheap prices on teevees and other cheap crap was a good idea are also to blame.

    Yeah dumbass, you can afford that big flat screen now, but you can't find a job with living wage.....
    because you know unions were thugs and socialists and all that.
    And how do we know unions are thugs and socialists?
    Because the people on our our cheap teevee tell us so.

      They may be all of those things, but they have been allowed and encouraged to follow their instincts by greedy, corrupt and craven politicians.

      It is very easy to regulate these matters, you just have to want to.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.
