John Galt, "If Walmart paid significantly higher wages and benefits, the current workers would be replaced by more qualified people.

When wages are low, uncertainty dogs the marketplace and growth is weak. But when pay is high and steady, Ford asserted, business is more secure because workers earn enough to become good customers.'
Who are the typical Wal-Mart employees? Unless you're into corporate upward mobility (you can find that at Wal-Mart, as well), Wal-Mart is all about employing lower to middle-class people. Why would you want them "replaced", to do what, get a job that YOU deem appropriate?
You know-it-all liberal a**holes are so wrapped up in your presumptuousness, you can't imagine someone working a job they enjoy, at a wage they seem happy with. If they want a more ostentatious lifestyle, they can try and find a better job.

The idea that all Walmart shoppers are poor is ridiculous.
Financially secure people do not reach that status by overpaying for brand-name goods that they can buy cheaper at Walmart.
Damn right. That's a lesson one learns through experience and good sense. Most Walmart detractors have neither.

Guess what the countries noted above are basically all poor countries, and guess what else all those products were purchased, not at Wal-Mart but at retailers like JC Pennys, Nordstrom, Kohls, Macys, Fred Meyer.
Why do you not blame the well known American companies that use the services of the poor in these countries to produce their goods. Why do you not attack the Penny's, the Sears, the Nordstroms, the Macy's, the Fred Meyers, that get their products from these poor countries? The answer you are a phoneyfucking hypocrite.

The demographics of Germany are far superior to those of the US, making comparisons difficult.

Keep in mind that East Germany was isolated until the 1980's.

So, Germany is primarily a white, well educated nation of what? Eighty million who rely on unions to bolster their wages and government to keep German manufactured products competitive on the world stage.

If you poke around in German demographics you'll also find that there are far fewer men past age 65 than women and that German males diks are "on average" 1.6 inches shorter and 1/3 smaller in circumference that those of the planets other males.

A: A viral email making this claim is off base.

BMW is not General Motors.

Since you are so good with statistics, how does the German labor force participation rate compare with the United States?

Horseshit.

Maximized benefit means the most you can get, not what you want.

"Social contract" my ass!

44.7 million Americans now on food stamps, compared to 28.2 million in 2008.

If you think food stamps (something for nothing) are not welfare, then you are kidding yourself.

How do people this stupid ever get elected? NH Republican Rep. Stella Tremblay Questions Legitimacy Of Boston Bombing Victim’s Loss Of Both Legs "In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing last month, New Hampshire Republican state Rep. Stella Tremblay pushed a crazy conspiracy theory alleging that the federal government orchestrated the horrific attack that left three people dead and dozens injured. She made the claim in a post on Glenn Beck’s Facebook page.

That lunacy wasn’t enough for Tremblay, however. Despite being condemned by her own party and being called upon to resign by constituents, Tremblay appeared on a right-wing radio show this week and dared to question the legitimacy of a reaction to injuries suffered by a victim of the bombing. The Union Leader reports that Tremblay attacked Jeff Bauman, a victim who lost both of his legs in the tragic terrorist attack and heroically made an effort to talk to the FBI about the suspects despite his devastating injury.

“My first gut reaction seeing the horror of that person that has their legs blown off,” Tremblay’s crazy theory began.“You know, the bone sticking out? He was not in shock. I looked and I thought, there’s something.… I don’t know what’s wrong, but it seems surreal to me. I talked to my sister, who’s not into politics at all, and she said,‘Yes, I saw the same thing.’ He was not in shock. He was not in pain. If I had had those type of injuries, I’d be screaming in agony.” Of course, no active Republican has yet to call for Tremblay to resign,...Check this out: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/05/04/nh-re...

FrontPorchMonkey is just a chimp that does monkey see, monkey do. He simply repeats the propaganda he reads and hears with no ability to discern what is silly from what is valid.

American cars have foreign made parts and Obama is in bed with GM so the Porch Monkey won't mention that.

Can't do that comparison pal__you should already know that the US has much different circumstances than your homeland.

Native Americans

Military veterans

Illegal aliens

To name three__I could easily name more.

BMW makes good cars in Germany as well as in the US and they aren't exactly in competition with Detroit three built cars are they? Should mention that US BMW sales are well off the mark at present. It's not the cost for the cars but the cost for the post warranty maintenance and repairs.

John Galt, "44.7 million Americans now on food stamps, compared to 28.2 million in 2008." The old 'food stamp ' controversy canard that Newt Gingrich pulled out of his ass during the 2012 republican primaries and panic-strickened Mitt Romney grabbed on to just before he lost to Obama in the Presidential election. "Mitt Romney claims President Barack Obama caused a doubling of able-bodied persons on food stamps by taking “work out of the food stamps requirement.” That’s an exaggeration. All but four states had already received waivers from specific work requirements for some or all of their residents before Obama became president." Check this out: http://www.factcheck.org/2012/09/romneys-food... It still stinks and there is no wonder why you smell shitty too for handling it once again.:-D
