The meaning of security

If we ever forgot, the 1,000-point plunge in the Dow Jones Industrial Average last Thursday should be a permanent reminder: We're all Greeks. Full Story

If my penny-pinching grandmother were here today, she would save money by shopping at Walmart.

Reality is nobody is safe from the government revenue agents who can nationalise farms, 401k's, IRA's and anything else they so please to.

The people in vermont could be able to take care of themselves, but there is no way they can protect themselves from the federal government and the federal wealth redistribution army so it's really pointless to even try.

I buy locally--at the local Walmart! I don't love Walmart but one has to save money somehow. I simply don't fit into the stuff that is mentioned here.

Rich or poor?
That has nothing to
do with class

But shop at Walmart?
Then you ARE just
white trash.

You make your neighbors and yourself poorer in the long run when you shop at a firm which buys everything from Communist China. You a commie? Even if it cost a few more buck in the short term, you make a lot more bucks in the long term by supporting local business.

You just sound like an angry clueless government-hating Teabagger.

But guess what - the government take-over of General Motors has resulted in that company finally turning a profit. Just like it did with Chrysler back in the 1980s. Yep, it actually took in more money than it spent in the 1st quarter of 2010. Next, GM is going to be re-privatized through an IPO. Unfortunately I wouldn't buy their stock any more than I'd buy their cars.

They stole billions owed to bond holders like public employee pension funds so they didn't turn a legal profit, they skipped out on their bills and shifted the cost of their debt to the taxpayers and also stiffed the 70,000 Delphi workers who used to be GM employee's out of their pension and dumped the cost on the taxpayers.
They stole the company from stock holders like public employee pension funds so the taxpayers will end up covering that loss also.

You are a koolaid drinker to the max.

How does shopping and buying locally save money in the long run? How does shopping at walmart make you white trash? Not everyone has the luxury of paying more for there items.

I am far from wealthy. But I want my neighbors, my locally owned businesses - the ones who employee local men and women, keep their children in clothes and more? I want them to thrive. Giving my $ to a company which sends ALL of its money out of state, and makes no attempt to buy from local sources ever? Stupid. The inability to think past instant gratification, to plan for the optimum future? The TV induced ADD story of America now (that and obesity).

The corporate trucks bring in the corporate goods and the only difference is manager or owner and the higher prices on the chicom junk.
