Why Wally*World goes after small towns, not cities...

Putting aside you just told us the mom & pop paid minimum wage...
They do mostly pay minimum wage. Wal Mart's products are not inferior and I save thousands of dollars a year. Wal Marts are in large cities. Nashville, Louisville, Indianapolis, and Cincinnati are just a few.

And yet, they always seem to have a lot of employees on hand everyday.... People willing to work for the wages that are paid...
Sounds like a free market to me.

Yes: you are wrong.

But even when I posted the Kentucky law that clearly states photo ID is not needed to vote, you continued to insist they required photo ID.

And the US taxpayers pick up the tab whenever the typical Wally*world employee gets sick.

Along with the millions of dollars many of the communities paid when Wally*world settled in.

Anyone who has healthcare shopping at Wally*world is morally bankrupt.

Military spending is created by wars started by war criminals like George Bush, and that will never change because Republicans will always see their elected leaders as a combination of God and daddy, and will always give them mindless obedience.
But who told Bush to start those wars? We all know he couldn't come up with any idea on his own.
If you don't know, you aren't qualified to vote, so stay home and watch tv on every election day.

"The conservative practice of cutting taxes while spending millions on wars has led to the largest debt in half a century, and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is proposing exactly the same policies. An analysis by the Center for American Progress found that if McCain’s economic plan was in place for eight years, it would leave a debt of $12.7 trillion, besting Bush’s record."

Good points.
People:
FOCUS on the cause of ALL our problems The people who are destroying our economy aren’t STUPID and it goes far beyond greed. They know exactly what they’re doing, yet most Americans are still living in the past, and they think Congress is just misguided, and all they have to do is write a letter, etc.

PEOPLE, WAKE UP! The Rothschilds liberally OWN US. Their private corporation, the ‘Federal Reserve’, has more power than any president and Congress put together.
The Federal Reserve stockholders profit greatly from all these horrible wars we start.
Haven’t you noticed Bernanke THREATENING congress? The ‘Fed’ is breaking federal laws, but nobody dares to touch them. The ‘Fed’ banks deliberately created the banking scam that caused this worldwide recession, but nobody at the top will ever be prosecuted.
WE ARE IN MORTAL DANGER.
That could all be changed in an instant if Republicans morons would stop being idiots, would stop ATTACKING the rest of us, and would join us in fighting the treason that will enslave us all.
More about what they’re doing and why at:
