<quoted text>Baby boomers Flacko!
The glut of retiring baby boomers hitting the economy and the "statistics" has been known for decades.
These folks are retiring (and going on the gubmint teat) at a rate of 10,000 per day.
Scary eh?
In spite of that "fact" the economy continues to improve under the expert guidance of DaBammy.
Bet you still believe in Santa Clause too. The recovery, if any (which I doubt), is in spite of Obama. Not because of him.

<quoted text> That is a flat out liberal lie!!! Every Walmart built around here has improved the existing roads and even built roads and parking lots not only for them but for all the other stores and restaurants.
From Vermont to Florida, South Carolina to California, Idaho to Iowa, 86 communities across America have stopped big box retailers – Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and the like – from locating in their towns.
But why ever would anyone want to do that? In his autobiography, Wal-Mart CEO Sam Walton says that Wal-Mart would never go to a town that didn't want it. He says there are plenty of places just pining for the low-priced mountains of stuff that Wal-Mart offers. Who could object to getting in a small town the one-stop convenience and deep discounts city folks get to enjoy?
In Gig Harbor, Washington, the answer is: the 14,000 people who signed an anti-Wal-Mart petition, that's who. If you ask small town folks like those in Gig Harbor (which the big box guys never seem to do), lots of them don't think an enormous concrete cube surrounded by acres of asphalt is much of an aesthetic addition.
But, you say, that's a small price to pay. You only suffer the aesthetic affront as you drive in and out of town. True enough, except, once Wal-Mart has been in town for a few years, you'll suffer the aesthetic affront of driving through a downtown that's filled with empty buildings where the pharmacy, dry-goods, variety, and hardware stores that it drove out of business used to be. Because Wal-Mart, according to the late Mr. Walton, comes to town to compete. Walton talks about Wal-Mart's policy of saturating regions, and in areas where it's achieved saturation, it's now taking the next step – opening regional “Superstores,” which offer groceries, auto repair, and other services, and closing their smaller stores in surrounding towns.
So, once Wal-Mart has changed you to a one-store town, you may get lucky and become the location of the new Superstore for your area. Or you may be like a growing number of little towns, which, after loyally pumping their retail dollars into Wal-Mart, discover that the town 30 miles down the road got the Superstore, and they get an empty big box on the edge of town to go with all the empty stores where downtown used to be. According to Sprawl-Busters, an anti-big-box organization run by Al Norman, there are now nearly 200 dead Wal-Mart discount stores. But, hey, Wal-Mart makes your retail dollar go further, and Wal-Mart brings jobs to town. Or does it?

All those jobs Wal-Mart creates? For one thing, most of them aren't anyone's idea of prosperity. And they aren't new jobs. Wal-Mart doesn't bring anything to a community that wasn't already there; it takes its business from the existing retailers. There may be a moment when there are more jobs in town, but that lasts only until the small stores begin to close. Since Wal-Mart is replacing full-service stores with its self-service model, the net result to a community is a loss of jobs, about 1.5 for every Wal-Mart employee, according to Sprawl-Busters.

Oh please
I did watch that part of the sermon in question in its entirety. Even though Rev. Wright's "GD America" sermon was taken out of context to a certain degree and America has definitey made some very aggregious mistakes in the past, no one can be blamed but the leadership during those times.

It was a Democrat president responsible for the Trail of Tears and the horrific treatment of the Indians.

It was a Democrat president who ordered the A-bombs be dropped in Japan and the same Democrat who ordered the fire bombs be dropped on Germany innocents.

Democrats in the south kept slavery an institution for over 100 years and it was the same Democrats who did everything within their power to deny them their civil rights close to another 100 years.

It was a Democrat president who escalated our presence in Vietnam an another Democrat president who escalated the war.

So while Rev. Wright is busy blaming all of America for all the ills of the world and having brought 9/11 on ourselves, he should try and remember which party he belongs to and which party the above president's belonged to as well.

I was thinking the same thing! I wouldn't go to any of those places! My town hasn't allowed for any of those big box stores in the east part of town and I hope it stays that way, they're all 10 miles out west. Delray has allowed one, right on the border of my town and so has Lighthouse Pte. What a shame.

Sherwin-Williams is also in the export business bud.

Many wall coverings, adhesives etc. are made in France.

The point was that the company sells a lot of American made stuff in it's retail stores__that's true and so does Benjamin Moore.

"Obama doesn't fit the mold. He ain't white, he ain't rich, he ain't priveleged."
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =vdJB-qkfUHcXX
Obama is half white and raised by a white mother and white grandparents when his black father abandoned him.
Obama is considerably wealthy from his books and his short stents as both a lawyer and a senator.
Obama has led a more priveleged life than most whites.
As a matter of fact, Rev. Wright is considerably wealthy himself.
What say you?

Yeah, man, he is. It's pretty much red state blue state stuff again. About 25 years ago Prince Charles and Diana came to DC and Reagan or somebody took them on a tour of Fairfax County Virginia. Charles fuckin' flipped out, man! There he was in the car with these "dignitaries" who were, like, proud of this shit and he was tryin' to claw his way out of the limousine. No really, Virginia, flack's Virginia, is in large part ex-military, ex-Fed and they got no clue, man. The more shit you can cram into a mile of highway the better! Fuck trees, man, go to Massachusetts if you want trees. You never saw anything like it. You got no GPS? forget drivin' in ex-military Virginia cause everything there looks exactly like everything else: grey or brown.

Sometimes I'll get totally stoned and drive out 123 past the CIA (George Bush Center for Intelligence - tee-hee) and just motor on down through Tyson's and Vienna trying to figure out what they see in all this? Walmart? Screw that, man. Another shitbox American company sellin' cheap chinee shit to retired sojurs an' farmers, eager to grab aholt the good life. Now get your ass out there, man, and start drowning some of these people before they eat your brains.

Here, I repeat myself... what "good" has ever come out of the south? When you think of "problem solving" do you think, "I need to find me some redneck assholes!" When choosing a brain surgeon do you interview ex-military personnel? C'mon, man, get busy.

Carol says she went to U of Illinois, but I think it was really Texas. They make their own history books there. They even removed Thomas Jefferson from them.
