    Got this in an email today, it is the first time I have seen it.

    Here it is just as I received it.


    Regardless of your political affiliation, this is something to give you some thoughts. I am not trying to persuade you either way, just giving some facts.
    Please note that this does not pick on any one political party but is an indictment against all our duly elected officials.

    I know lots of folks don’t like Wal-Mart, but this is fascinating.
    This is spot-on.


    1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

    2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

    3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

    4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

    5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world's largest private employer, and most speak

    6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

    7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they
    Did this in only fifteen years.

    8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

    9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

    10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers;
    This is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

    11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth's
    Population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

    12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.

    You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for
    Suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

    This should be read and understood by all Americans… Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!

    To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature

    It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons:

    A.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years
    To get it right and it is broke.

    B.. Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it
    Right and it is broke.

    c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right
    And it is broke.

    D.. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right;
    $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the
    Poor" and they only want more.

    E.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years
    To get it right and they are broke.

    F.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right
    And it is broke.

    G.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence
    On foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion

    A year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right
    And it is an abysmal failure.

    You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.


    Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated

    Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of

    Some of our "duly elected' (they never read anything) and their staff will clue them in on

    How Americans feel.


    I know what's wrong. We have lost our minds to "Political Correctness" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone please tell me what the HELL's wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!

    We're "broke" & can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????

    In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , and Turkey..And now Pakistan .......

    Previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

    Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks…

    AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry,

    Elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc,etc.

    Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.

    Sad isn't it?

    I would vote for Dollar General folks to take charge. There are more Dollar General stores than any other retailer in the US. They are much smaller than WalMart, but are able to serve the needs of very small communitites.
