I guess all of the apologists for fascism on this thread applaud Walmart's underhanded taking of a taxpayer subsidy that pads their bottom line. They see a corporate welfare hobo like Walmart as the model employer. They've been conditioned by the Fox News folks who mold their oh so malleable world view so that they feel very comfortable lying prostrate with their face in the mud and a foot on the back of their neck, just as long as it's a fascist foot.
Another thing these aspirants to mediocrity must love about Walmart is their low prices. Of course, it's not like Walmart is adding a modest profit to the low, low production costs and shipping that they enjoy from their Asian suppliers. They are pricing those goods just below what it would cost for American made goods that would no doubt be of higher quality, and pocketing a huge chunk of that sales price. That is to say that rather than basing their profit on their costs, they are simply undercutting American production. Some, like the those who massage the corporatists here, would say that it is just what the market will bear. I say that it is how they can both rip off the consumer and destroy the American manufacturing base, while growing fabulously wealthy at the expense of both.
How wealthy? They are one family that controls as much wealth as the bottom forty percent of Americans. Is anyone up for a new definition of obscenity?
I don't understand your point. Are you angry because you live in the new america? This is the model for it. Low paying jobs with no future. All the while corporate fat cats get all the money. Meanwhile you pay the freight for all the people out of work. Wait until Zero springs the new rates on the middle class! Much wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Here's the plan. CONgress and Zero have no intention of fixing the financial cliff. They will blame each other for it as we go over. Meanwhile everyone's taxes go up, spending goes up, and they pretend it's the other sides fault playing to their respective base. They don't have to come up with any plan that will get them thrown out of office. It's genius, and you heard it here first.
