Okay, Rico... I'm going to put my personal feelings aside for a moment and give you a wake up call.
49% of the people in the U.S. do not pay income taxes, and they aren't the rich ones.
Where do you think they shop?
Where do you think the welfare recipients shop?
Where do you think the 12 million unemployed in the U.S. shop?
And. last, but not least, where do you think most of the retirees that have seen their pension dollars shrink every year shop?
Some of these people shop at Wal-Mart because they like it. A lot of them shop at Wal-Mart because they can't afford to shop any where else. Asking them to skip meals & medicines to shop elsewhere is like asking Obama to follow the Constitution.
It's not going to happen.
OH Please, cry me a river!

It's very obvious by your reply that you are not looking for a solution, after having endured you assaults as have many others it's for sure that you are part of the problem, your not a 'Fixer, but a "Bitcher', you love the conflict...

All of us who shop in Wal-Marts are able to function on a daily basis, reason/select what to purchase, we all know that buying something from China, Guatemala, Poland and Germany means that we are supporting those countries industries and not our own, making excuses for our purchases is unrealistic if we are ever going to get a 'Manufacturing-Base' back in our country, as long as we accept the status quo and not use our buying-power to re-energize our nation we will only sink deeper into debt...

Forcing the corporations to re-locate back into the U.S., hiring a workforce from the populace, and closing the 'Loop-holes' in the tax code are the only solutions left to us...
Corporations(Wal-Mart) represents a way to 'Touch' these corporations in a fashion that is safe, profitable and available to the general-public...

Wal-Mart is the 'Key', they deal with and represent every corporation on the planet, from steel to textiles, from telephones to trucks, Wal-Marts touches everyone and everything!
They own every major grocery store here in Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and the list goes on...

Touch them, and you touch the world, who cares who runs the world, we are the one s that keep the case flowing, we are the ones they will listen to, we are the ones that can make a difference, we just need to start...

You want to divide-up the wealth of the rich and pass it around, then what, when its re-distributed in just flows back to the rich, what have you accomplished?

You always are blowing your own horn as to having all the answers, BUT, when a workable solution is offered, and this Wal-Mart solution is workable at all levels of society you disregard it because you don't want to put-out the effort it will take, your comfort-zone is threatened, time to get back down to earth, grab this tiger by the tail...
It's time to lead, you've followed long enough!

Poor ignorant teabagger, just because you can't understand simple sentences, doesn't mean everyone is brain damaged, such as yourself. Have your paperboy explain this to you, you might grasp it then: "A McDermott amendment to attach the assistance program to the Panama agreement was defeated 22-15 on a party-line vote.

Similarly in the Senate the majority Democrats rejected an amendment by Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., that would have required the three trade agreements to go into force before the expanded benefits under the assistance program could be affected.

All three trade agreements were signed during the George W. Bush administration, but never advanced in the then-Democrat controlled Congress".

Hate to inform you but LBJ took away your social security money in 1966.

He took the TRUST money and dumped it into the Fed. general fund so there has been nothing to privatise since 1966.

LBJ needed the money to finance his War on Poverty and the VN WAr so he took it.

Those of you who claim "GOOD it wasn't privatized " are totally in the dark pertaining to Social Security.

Now you're sending a message, non-violent and financially in their face message...
Grass-roots is the only way to go, attacking the top is a struggle in futility, but pressuring the local import-pusher will get the job done...
So we should picket the white house, it seems they imported Obama.........but hey he does do a good photo shop.

Boehner: Debt Deal Not Imminent...It don't have to be, we take in 200 billion a month, just take out the first 20 billion to service the bond debt, and shabooooooooom, no default. This is just more smoke and mirrors from Obama and Washington.

Obama:'We are turning the corner'...jeeebeeebus, right after 9.2% unemployment was announced. What a clueless dolt.

Proposed new rule for daycare centers:'Dolls shall represent 3 races'... Oh goody, affirmitive day care.

I actually returned a bag of frozen salmon to the grocery store a while back. When I'd gotten it home I read that it was a "product of China". Like hell. China doesn't have salmon. So it was shipped from a country that does fish salmon, packaged in China and shipped back to the US. I took it back to the grocery store (not Walmart, btw) and asked for my money back.

It's very difficult these days to buy products that are solely made in the U.S., but as far as food goes I do everything I can to make sure it's from the U.S. If it isn't I won't buy it.

From Mexico we get:

- Fish, fowl, meats.
Encode the bar codes on products and you'll discover hardly ANYTHING is MADE or GROWN in the USA.
IF A PRODUCT SAYS:
Packaged in the USA
Distributed in the USA
Shipped from the USA
Prepared in the USA
Assembled in the USA.
.....then is has not been manufactured or grown in the USA!
Since the Clinto Admnistration, 75% of all businesses have been relocated to China, Mexico, etc.
Hussein Obama wants to make it 95% by the end of 2012.
This is all according to the plan of "the powers that be" in other words the people who control the money in the world. All the money !!! Ducats, pesos, francs, euros, dinars, kroons, dollars, yen, etc.

The banksters who control the world's Central Banks are telling us what they want to have happen. China will soon be the manufacturing center of the world.

There is more to the story but you already know most of it.

PALIN: The Sugar Daddy Has Run Out of Sugar...PALIN NAILS IT DOWN. OBAMA STILL TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT.

Senate Democrats have drafted a sweeping debt-reduction plan that would slice $4 trillion from projected borrowing over the next decade without touching the expensive health and retirement programs targeted by President Obama. SHOWING OBAMA IS THE ONE TRYING TO CUT HEALTH BENEFITS AND SOCIAL SECURITY.

Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota seized on the issue and used the first television commercial of her campaign to highlight her opposition to raising the debt ceiling. She drew enthusiastic applause on Saturday as she amplified her position.

Its time for tough love, Mrs. Bachmann told supporters at a rally.Dont let them scare you by telling you that the countrys going to fall apart.

At a rally on Saturday afternoon, the crowd cheered when Mrs. Bachmann declared her intention to vote against any compromise. She referred to Congress as a dysfunctional family.

We need a new day in Washington, she said.We need a new sheriff.

Poor teabagger. STILL denying the truth? Then deflect to another B.S. wing-nut talking points that has NOTHING to do with subject you were responding to, like a red headed step child holding his breath. Poor teabagger: US President George W. Bush declared today that he had signed a rare Presidential Decree canceling any further expenditure of Federal funds on the US Space Shuttle program.

"We cannot find any justification to continue the deficit funding of a program that has no application other that proving that with enough money America can do anything," said Bush.

"The whole world knows that already, so why keep spending money on it," he added. www.spacedaily.com/news/rocketscience-05o.htm... - Cached
