Here are the facts about WalMart ...
----------
Wal-Mart's low wages cost taxpayers plenty
Because of the chain's low wages, its workers are often pushed to accept public aid, including food stamps and subsidized housing, according to a report from congressional Democrats.
That means a single Wal-Mart Supercenter store in Wisconsin may require taxpayers to shell out as much as $1.7 million per year -- or nearly $6,000 per employee -- in aid, according to one estimate in the report. A second estimate pegged the cost to taxpayers at a lower $904,542 per Supercenter. The study examined Wal-Mart stores in Wisconsin because of the availability of Medicaid enrollment data for the fourth quarter of 2012.

WalMart has ALWAYS shifted expenses for it's employees healthcare onto the public sector. It's what they've done for years. It has absolutely nothing to do with Obamacare.
Blaming the President for WalMart's outrageous and immoral employment practices is not just blindly partisan, it's fundamentally dishonest. Only a mindless wingnut dupe would swallow that tripe.
Danny, only a mindless idiot would believe what you just posted.

Walmart’s “low-road” competitive practices hurt not only the company’s 1.3 million employees - who suffer from lost income, poor working conditions and economic insecurity - but it also hurt all American taxpayers. The nation’s largest private-sector employer is also the largest employer of workers - who according to a Bloomberg study earn an average of $8.81 an hour - dependent on food stamps, subsidized housing and child care, government health insurance for low-income individuals, and other forms of public assistance. The Democratic staff of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce recently released a report stating that the poverty wages and poor benefits at a single Walmart store might cost taxpayers as much $1 million per year in higher usage of public-assistance programs by both Walmart employees and their dependents.

Higher wages, better benefits and more full-time jobs at Walmart’s 4,000 stores across the nation, in contrast, would also have a broad-based beneficial economic impact. They would make Walmart workers less reliant on public assistance, help to end the enormous taxpayer subsidy of the world’s largest retailer, which is owned the country’s richest family, and give a much-needed boost to the economy of urban America.

I'm surpised Mitt Romney hasnt bought out the Waltons, it's his kind of business. Reap BIG money while the workers make peanuts. The Waltons and Romneys of the world are destroying this country .
But most people already knew that.

NSA spying flap extends to contents of U.S. phone calls
National Security Agency discloses in secret Capitol Hill briefing that thousands of analysts can listen to domestic phone calls. That authorization appears to extend to e-mail and text messages too.
The National Security Agency has acknowledged in a new classified briefing that it does not need court authorization to listen to domestic phone calls, a participant said....
Not only does this disclosure shed more light on how the NSA's formidable eavesdropping apparatus works domestically, it also suggests the Justice Department has secretly interpreted federal surveillance law to permit thousands of low-ranking analysts to eavesdrop on phone calls.

Of course this nonsense has already been debunked.

Great Moments in Journalism

In case you missed it, there was a big ‘scoop’ on Saturday evening from CNET, purporting to report that Rep. Jerry Nadler revealed that he’d been told in a classified briefing that NSA analysts could choose to listen to domestic phone calls simply on the basis of their decision that they were worth listening to - no warrant, no national security letter.

It caused a minor explosion Saturday evening but pretty quickly people noticed that it was based on a highly ambiguous exchange between Nadler and FBI Director Robert Mueller and that the reporter hadn’t even talked to Nadler to confirm what he meant. But late Saturday evening, the story seemed increasingly shaky and Sunday morning Nadler released a statement appearing to invalidate the whole thing. Yet, CNET tried to brazen it out with a small change to the headline and an update at the end of the article basically pretending that the article still held up.

If you were enjoying your Father’s Day weekend and missed the whole thing, good for you. Another example of how sloppy journalism can misinform, especially when reporters refuse to own up to their mistakes.

A new CNN/ORC International poll gives Obama an approval rating of 45%, a drop of 8 percentage points over the past month.

Isn't it great! Our numbers are growing - people are catching on: Da Bammy is a failure. LOL But we're not surprised.

"The drop in Obama's support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition," says CNN polling director Keating Holland.

Oops!

The Supreme Court struck down an Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship before voter registration. However, it did so because federal law trumps state law. If the federal law was changed, requiring proof of citizenship first would be acceptable. Seventy-one percent (71%) of voters favor such a requirement.

Take back America! LOL

!LOL!

This is at least your second "traitor" accusation of a Topix poster this week, Lil danny BOY.

A convicted traitor faces a possible death penalty yet, just this week, you've accused 'America needs to fail' AND 'Dave Rogers' of being traitors!

Your habit of calling someone a traitor merely because you disagree with them is a lying child's tactic, Lil danny. Grow up.

Little wonder you are mocked and derided on Topix. You're wildly dishonest, BOY.

You should apologize to 'America needs to fail' AND 'Dave Rogers.'

Still the same Lil danny BOY: occasional plagiarist, proven racist, pathological liar.

P.S. Did your Lil danny BOY cartoon avatar finally embarrass even you? LOL

Just goes to show you - a coordinated attack by lying propagandists can swing the opinions of low information voters.

Celebrate while you can, traitor. Because the fact is that America is stronger than the rightwing liars, so as the truth is revealed, this single poll will ultimately mean nothing.

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground co-founder who once knew Barack Obama in Chicago, now thinks the president should be put on trial for war crimes.

Ayers made the comments during an interview with Real Clear Politics. The former leader of a domestic terror group ripped the sitting president over his continuation of the U.S. drone program.
