There aren't any American made products, moron boy. The Unions priced their products out of the market. Plus the quality of their work was not good. Wal Mart make jobs for people in rural areas, and small towns. Lord the Democrats wouldn't any job creators in the little towns. Better we keep them all on welfare. God, Democrats are so stupid.

ALL American companies have to pay bribes to do any business in latin america or even US indian tribe dealings. So why on earth would US democrat congresscritters give a ratz asz about this mexican bribe business other than just butthurt looking for their cut ?

They're investigating because Walmart didn't offer them a bribe and they're pizzed.



They're also upset because they are Union Puppets and they were told to show mock outrage.

Jobs that have no retirement, no health plans and not 401K plans (bonuses is a curse). Salaries that you can support a family with!
.
The only as*hole around here is you! Endorsing "Made abroad" by pushing for an international distributor whose only goal is to force producers to move where Walmart dictates! 200 Walmarts in Mexico have basically destroyed Mexico internal distribution native markets! That displacement forced massive dislocation proned for illegal emigration!
.
Basically, money goes through Walmart and eventually Walmart will dictate policies, political and ecological, in Mexico! Too much power (financial, political or militarily) in one entity is monopoly! CAPICE?
.
I forgot you supported J. P. Morgan in the 1890's!

Walmart creates jobs, Democrats do not. It is that simple. Democrats have no business being involved other then to harrass Walmart. I have lived in small towns before Walmart came in, and the locals took advantage of everyone with their high prices for inferior products. They knew you didn't want to drive 30 miles to a bigger city. So Walmart came in, with practical prices, and a large selection of merchandise, and catered to the people. Hired locals, but that isn't good enough for the Democrats.

The Congress should know a lot about Bribery. Not only on a personal level, but in its dealings with foreign Countries. After all isn't foreign Aid just another form of Bribery...... albiet just a little bit more sophisticated.

It is a form of bribery. Especially when it is given on a consistent basis to countries that really don't need it. That's when it starts to become obvious.

Walmart is big enough to thumb their nose at the Congressmen. Don't they have something to do besides harrass Walmart? Like pass some legislation to increase American oil production? Or end those wars Obama needs to end before November?

Or clean up their own House and Senate? Or prepare a Budget?

You are right, Cat74. These "holier than thou" legislators sure do like that "busy work" as opposed to doing the jobs that they were elected to do. What about the corruption and bribe taking amongst their own? When does that get addressed?

You got me on that one...lol Good thing they wasted a Congressional Hearing on Trayvon Martin a couple of weeks ago. Since that issue is losing steam, I suppose that they will have to consider other trivial matters, although I'm not so sure about sports. After all, aren't most of those high paid athletes (and celebrities) also liberals?

I think most celebrities are libs, but athletes are conservatives, as they see how much of their money is stolen from them in taxes. Many of them (pro golfers for sure) move to Florida and other states with no state income tax, but you cant avoid the IRS. Neither rain nor snow nor dark of night prevents them from stealing.
