The company said it "never lobbied on" possible changes to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the law that makes it a crime for U.S. companies to pay bribes overseas.

Wal-Mart played down its presence on the boards of lobbying organizations that are critical of how the anti-bribery law is enforced. Businesses have increasingly agitated against the law in recent years, saying it is vague.

"Simply because Wal-Mart is a member of an organization does not mean we agree with every position they take," spokesman David Tovar said.

Obama's college was paid for by Billy Ayers Mommie, and Daddie, and later when he attended law school that was paid for by a Middle Eastern Sheik. He had no loans. He got everything in his life the same way, Affirmative action.
