I guess I am a moron in many ways and I like it that way. I got a new email that compares WalMart to morons until you get to the bottom. At least I am not a corrupt moron!

There are some very interesting comparisons but I would rather be a moron. I detest everything about WalMart. The way they do business, the way they ruined many, many, many successful businesses who were not corrupt and not run by morons.

Can you imagine living like WalMart does business? It is their way or the highway although that trip is short until you come upon another WalMart. It's like they have mastered the socialist scheme being shoved down our throats but the books look great!

The best part of New Zealand was no big box stores to speak of. Mom and pop stores and cafes flourish. What a beautiful way of life and their answer to almost every problem was "no worries." They live a very serene, peaceful existence if we gauged them right.

They suspect corruption at every turn and think they have crime. It was more like when I was a child in the 50's and boy do I long for that way of living. We had it made and gave it away to people who want to put everything in a box.

So I am passing this on and passing it back with a twist.

Do you really want to live the WalMart way?


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 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 ??

Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated. Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our "duly elected' (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.

See what happens when you forward me email?



  1. I guess I'm not quite as down on Walmart as you are Ed, since they mostly got where they are by using the same system everybody else does. Still, I wish I'd never heard of it, even though I'm forced to shop there for far too many things. I feel that the real culprit is the American consumer, who'll buy anything foreign made if it's ten cents cheaper than the same thing made in this country. That sort of selfishness is now biting us ALL in the backside, whether we contributed to the problem or not. (I may take you up on emailing your post to some other folks.)

  2. You are probably right Gorges. Our freedom has been interpretated into license to do what I think is wrong. Most consumers fall into this group. It is good we can have this dicussion here and decide on our buying habits which reflect on all our habits.
