While retailers like Walmart and other big box stores decry employee unionization movements as socialist, they have no qualms with the gov't subsidizing their employees pay. They could easily pay their workers more, they choose not to do so. However they are more than willing to accept "help" from taxpayers, but employees attempting to improve their wages directly through the employer can hit the bricks. I am not advocating for unionization, just a unified front with regards to what is "socialist.
Do you think I control Yahoo also? If I am so liberal why am I the only one that is speaking out against a welfare society and you are supporting it. Funny isn't it.
So your are all hat and no cattle. Once again you prove your words.
You welfare Queens are all the same you like junkies still willing do or say anything to defend your welfare handouts. I pay all my own bills it is time you stood on your own do feet and did the same.
You are full of it . Your constant name calling and weak attempts at trying to belittle people that actually run businesses is a rather constant theme of your postings. I support companies that pay their own labor costs without using welfare as a subsidiy. If they wish to use the taxpayers welfare services let them but charge them a premium. Sooner or later the cost and hopefully bad press will convince them it is cheaper and more profitable to pay their workers enough not to be on welfare.
I pay all my labor costs with revenue generated by business not from welfare, imagine that if you can.
No I say let walmart use welfare to pay it workers, all it wants, but taxpayers should charge wmt and other corporations a premium for the use of this service. Then the markets would adjust and companies would pay their workers enough not to receive welfare. No company store needed, no welfare state like you are defending.
These walmarter welfare queens will do and say anything for their handouts.

Does anyone else think wmt's reputation for being a sleazy welfare Queen expanding?
Wal-Mart has finally thrown off the veil and revealed itself to the small city of Versailles, Kentucky, population 8,900--and many residents are up in arms.
According to an April 8th article in the Herald-Leader in Lexington, Kentucky, a 118,096 s.f. Wal-Mart superstore, plus a gas station, has been "finally publicly confirmed" ending months of rumors. Plans for the big box have now become public record, submitted to the Versailles-Midway-Woodford County Planning and Zoning Commission office in Versailles.
The superstore building, which is almost 3 acres in size, will sit on a 57 acre parcel along state Route 33, known as the Troy Pike. This parcel was only brought into Versailles in 2012 through annexation, and was rezoned at the time to permit commercial use. Local residents realize now that if they had know the rezoning of this parcel was meant to pave the way for a superstore, they would have seized the moment to speak out against rezoning land.
I think this is fantastic. I have ALWAYS said if you must shop a big box store Costco is the best one and this proves it. Plus Costco doesn't use welfare to subsidize it labor costs like walmart and it still has better prices.
Remember when they were selling poisonous cadmium laced jewelry to children even after they were told to pull it off the shelves. There is nothing they will not do just to make money. Really sleazy company.
Well I am glad to see America is hopefully moving to a superior preventative healthcare model rather than the old wait until I'm sick to see a doctor model. I just hope people will learn more personal responsibility in helping themselves get and stay healthy, by visiting the doctor more often.
Glad to see our new healthcare policies trickling down to to help more and more Americans. Looks like this Democratic trickle down policy is working better than the previous GOP trickle down failure.
If Walmart cannot cover their payroll costs without government assistance, then its clear that Walmart is not a sustainable business. Our supposed free market advocates should be rooting for Walmart to go under in favor of companies who don't need "hand outs", in accordance with their ostensible principles. Instead they tend to play cheerleader. Quite curious.
The whole Monsanto GMO #$%$ is a total scam on America. Europe is smart enough to outlaw GMO, hope America smartens up and stop this #$%$ food from reaching our tables.
Make you wonder what slight of hand they are try on poor wmt shopper today. Here is a news article from that last organic scam;
The Cornucopia Institute, the nation’s most aggressive organic farming watchdog, has filed a formal legal complaint with the USDA asking them to investigate allegations of illegal “organic” food distribution by Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Cornucopia has documented cases of nonorganic food products being sold as organic in Wal-Mart’s grocery departments.
“We first noticed that Wal-Mart was using in-store signage to misidentify conventional, nonorganic food as organic in their upscale-market test store in Plano, Texas,” said Mark Kastel of The Cornucopia Institute. Subsequently, Cornucopia staff visited a number of other Wal-Mart stores in the Midwest and documented similar improprieties in both produce and dairy sections.
Cornucopia notified Wal-Mart’s CEO Lee Scott in a letter on September 13, 2006 alerting the company to the problem and asking that it address and correct the situation on an immediate basis. But the same product misrepresentations were again observed weeks later, throughout October, at separate Wal-Mart stores in other states.
Actually my money manager says I have done very, very well with President Obama and business has never been better. Sorry you try to blame Obama for your own personal failures, but I'm not surprised. Try looking in a mirror you see the real problem. Time for you to take some personal responsibility for once in your life bird.
You can bet this organic gamble will quietly die the same death as walmart's high end fashion fiasco. This company is good at two things, living off taxpayer funded welfare and selling poor quality merchandise that is only a cash register's ring away from the landfill.
