-Obama adviser Jason Furman has estimated the welfare boost of Walmart’s low food prices alone is about $50b a year.

- Erase the Walmart CEO’s entire salary, and you can raise average hourly wages by just a penny or so.

- Erase the entire Walton family fortune and you get an average $1/hour boost to Walmart workers.

-As for Walmart workers getting health benefits thru Medicaid, that’s due in part to a policy liberals argued for: wapo.st/axXXNE

    I don’t argue with them, as soon as I hear what they are about I simply say “GO FUCK YOURSELF!”

    End of conversation.

    Funny how these edumacated dumbshits are against the upper 1% but support them with gubment funded EBT cards.

    I guess they erase their guilt by using taxpayers money to support the 1%.

    Ever watch Conan The Barbarian when the question is posed “Conan, what are the best things in life”? He answers the defeat of your enemies the lamentation of their women yada yada yada. That’s not true. Whats best in life is when your enemy finally shows his face uncamouflaged right before you and you throw a right that makes contact and you can feel the solid thud vibration all the way back to your elbow and through to your shoulder. You know you just fucked him up. That’s what these ass hats deserve, and thats whats best in life. Retract twice as fast as you throw.

    More people are buying online. It’s down to the big two: Amazon and Walmart with all the deals, cheap prices, and free delivery–not to mention the ease of returns and credits for damage and whatnot.

    I usually don’t go to Walmart, but it has nothing to do with how Walmart runs its business. I normally hate shopping, Walmart is now too big for me, and I am willing to pay a few extra bucks at stores where I know where things are and I know they carry the things I like.

    But, having said that, do I care how Walmart runs its business? No, not at all, and many people like Walmart. People can bitch and moan about Walmart all they like, but consumers vote with dollars, and Walmart is winning in a landslide.

    I haven’t shopped at Walmart, or Target, or K-Mart, etc., for years because I don’t buy anything made in China that I don’t have to, especially food.

    Massive trade imbalances, and loss of manufacturing, are every bit as economically damaging in the long run as huge budget deficits.

    Lately I’ve been leaning towards giving up on it though.
    America is pretty much on an unrecoverable downhill slide.
    I don’t have any kids, and my family history says it is extremely unlikely I’ll still be around in 20 years.
    So I’ve been asking myself why I should still give a damn about the long term when it is obvious so few others do.

    @”That Guy”–

    Don’t give up on it. I believe there are plenty who still give a damn about the long term. At least I do, and it is good to know of others who feel that way, no matter how near or far away they may live.

    Knowing that I am not alone in feeling this way is a powerful motivator; perhaps it can be for you, too.

    @That Guy,

    I’m 60 years old and feel pretty much the same way you do. I have no kids, either. And, if I have another 15 to 20 years left in the tank, it’ll come as a big surprise to me. All of my friends tell me that their kids pretty much voted for Obama as well. So, if they don’t give a flying flip about their future, why should I? From here on out, I’m going to do what I want when I want. And, the only people I’m going to help are those that I know who feel the same way I do. As for everybody else, let their “Messiah” take care of them. I’ve had enough.

    I’ve got two close friends who work at WalMart; one has a HS education and the other has a college degree in BuAd. Both are making good money and are happy with their jobs. [Well as happy as you can be about going to work every day]

    If you don’t like working at WalMart, or at whatever job you have, go find something else to do. You have free will and WalMart is a free enterprise, at least until they’re nationalized. Now STFU.

    The Penn & Teller Bullshit series said Wal*Mart saves the average family about $2000/year.

    I believe it! I actually go to Wal*Mart daily.

    I don’t ‘shop’ Wal*Mart daily, but they do have a Dunkin Donuts and a large cup of coffee is $1.49. Less than a half mile away at a ‘stand alone’ DD the same cup of coffee is $2.34, so I have an incentive to go into Wal*Mart for DD coffee!

    Next, just the other day I was changing the oil in my Jeep. I had to stop by O’Really Auto for a Wix filter (don’t ever use Fram!) and I figured I might save some time buying oil there instead of Wal*Mart… Well the oil at O’Really Auto had a 5 quart jug of Castrol GTX 5w30 for $26.98! I instead went to Wal*Mart and bought the same 5 quart jug of oil for $13.98!

    Then there’s ammo… The local sporting goods outlets like Mega Sports and Gander Mountain want $40+ for a 100 round box of FMJ S&W .40… I get the same exact box at Wal*Mart for $29.98.

    Then there’s things like canned food… Same Del Monte or Green Giant can of green beans is $0.50 to $0.60 cheaper at Wal*Mart than Dominicks or Jewel.

    On items such as those described above, I’ll shop Wal*Mart first every time. For anything fresh or butchered, I go elsewhere and fill in the stuff I couldn’t find at Wal*Mart.

    Saving money!

    @old_oaks. Perfect example why Walmart as business is such a success. And people, stop that quasi-patriotic, pro union horseshit “buy American”. It never made a sense to me, really it comes to the choice of being dumb,overspending “patriot” or smart, informed shopper.

    Stop looking at the shiny penny. Government at all levels with its regulations, taxation, and spending is the blame.
