Walmart didn't discriminate against Paula having diabetes. The entire Walmart stores are made up of obese black women with attitudes.

Yes, corporations are owned by people. The MAJOR stockholders in corporations like Exxon , GE, etc. are usually rich. They pay lobbyist to pay congressmen to pass laws giving the corporations laws that stifle competition, excuse taxes, award no bid government contracts , award US government owned natural resources and mining, drilling, fracking, etc rights for a paupers penance and even give cash incentives and tax rebates for not even paying taxes in the first place,. Example: USA owned cedar timber in Alaska is being sold for $1.18 (yes, ONE dollar eighteen cents) per thousand board feet.( I was paying over $1800 per thousand board feet of cedar 20 years ago). While the rich and well connected rob us totally blind, the public's attention is focused on the expense of disabled veterans , granny's social security and yes baby mommas. We cannot get control of our finances without being honest about what is really happening to our money.

I like Paula Deen. Called someone a racial name thirty years ago? Oh my. Gee.I called someone a racial name ten minutes ago. That old free speech thing. What was the racial name I used? Redneck.I get it! It's ok to use racial names for southern white people.

I expect that the next elections in 2014 will be marked by dissension and controversy. This country is going to experience a lot of change in the next several years, there will be blood.

Yea, but I get scared when they roll there eyes at me when my Visa is upside down and it doesn't read right. I get scared when they snatch my money from my hand, while smacking their gum.

Well, I don't understand why you people always rolling your eyes at me, just because I slide my Visa and its upside down. Sometimes people make mistakes and you people make me nervous with the smacking of your gum at me. I mean, I only come in to buy coffee, body wash, Legos for my 11 yo, super soakers, video games, yogurt, diet Sierra Mist Cranberry, cleaning supplies, pens, pencils, taco crap for Tuesday taco night, steak for steak burritos, etc etc. I give a lot to the store and I don't appreciate having to do everything on my own and to come in line with you people smacking your gum at me and rolling your eyes. I really don't appreciate it!

People DO NOT snatch MY money out of my hand. That will be a "call the po-po, we're gonna rumble" situation:). You are correct on the attitude thing though, I've seen amazing things there. Frankly, I do most of my food shopping at Aldi's.

You know, the thing is employee's, more and more, don't even KNOW what is expected. I've seen employee's sitting under a rack in Belk talking on a cell phone, at Walmart a employee stopped ringing a man up to read HIS newspaper, it's a pulse behind the register.
