What can we learn from WalMart
Posted in the Utica Forum
#1 Jan 3, 2013
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 that the majority of you are corrupt morons:
A. The U.S.Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 238 years to get it right and it is broke.
B. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 78 years to get it right and it is broke.
C. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 75 years to get it right and it is broke.
D. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 49 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've had 48 years to get it right and they are broke.
F. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 43 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.
The DOE has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You've had 36 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 emails of some of our "duly elected'(they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.
I know what's wrong. We have lost our minds to "Political Correctness".
Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that run this country!
We're "broke" and can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless, etc.?
In the last months, we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile, and Turkey and now Pakistan...previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS.
Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks...
AMERICA - a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn't it?
99% of people won't have the guts to forward this.
I'm one of the 1%-- I Just Did

So many websites show how to rob walmart blind and never get caught.

Bring it on, they can't screw it up any more than it already is.
#4 Jan 3, 2013
........maybe, Walmart should run the country!
#5 Jan 3, 2013
they pretty much do, we should just move their offices. The people we elect have no idea what money is, its probably semi accurate to say at least one person in walmarts corporate office has had to live on a budget before...none of these idiots that we elect have.

How come Wal-Mart has never supported a political candidate? Their employees alone can control an election. They could create their own party overnight.
#7 Jan 3, 2013
We COULD take care of our seniors, homeless...etc...if we quit taking care of every other damn person on the planet and putting our people last. Our taxpayers are going without so we can send food and meds to other countries? Bullshit.

walmarts greedy, not stupid lol. If they publiclly lean one way or another politically there goes half of their customers.

What happens if Walmart suddenly falls apart and fails? Thats 1.6 million more unemployed not counting another half million due to all the suppliers having to layoff to survive. Where will America be then? Already Walmart is also #1 in terminating employess as well. Walmart benefits more when America does bad because its like a welfare shoppers heaven,hence the 15 year super growth they've had.
What happens when all their competitors close down around them and you are now forced to pay Walmarts price? No more "Low Price Guarantee" and now we're screwed. The story of Walmart is not over. Be careful praising a company whose number one motive is to conquer.

Look at it this way, if they fire them, or they quit they are not able to collect unmployment. Thus saving us more money.

Whens the last time you saw a "falling price" at walmart? More like out of the way for the forklift thats raising the damn prices! Its really not saving money to shop there anymore, its just convenience. Get the oil changed and get groceries at the same time.
