A New Fable Entitled Wal-Mart and the U.S. Government

July 15, 2010

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 employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most speak English.

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

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

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

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

8. 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.

MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.

To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature,

Compare Wal-Mart to the Federal Government’s Record:

a.. The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. BROKE

b.. Social Security was established in 1935. BROKE


c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938. 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”.  BROKE

e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. BROKE

f.. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. 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. BROKE

EVERY GOVERNMENT SERVICE THAT HAS BEEN SHOVED DOWN OUR THROATS WHILE PAYING FOR THE SERVICE WITH TAXPAYER DOLLARS HAS FAILED AND IS BROKE

MORAL OF THE STORY: YOUR AVERAGE CONGRESSMAN KNOWS LESS THAN YOUR AVERAGE WAL-MART WORKER.   UNTIL CONGRESS CAN UP THE PRODUCTIVITY OF THE SERVICES THEY PROVIDE, THEIR PAY SHOULD BE LINKED TO PERFORMANCE.
