Walmart should run the country?
I recently received an email that wasnt meant for me. It suggested Wal-Mart should run the country, and wanted to cut US foreign aid. I wasn’t too sure this was the best solution.
I hope you don’t mind me replying.
I don’t think you meant to send the email to me.
My name is Neil. I live in the UK, so sorry if I get some of this a bit wrong.
I know it’s a lot more complicated, I can’t even bend my
mind around the national debt. I don’t know the system too well but the figures should be not too far off, easy for you to check though.
The US isnt my country but you said EVERYONE should read this.
It’s really nice that you are concerned about providing healthcare and social welfare. Good for you, I know it’s not popular with everyone in the US.
The US spends less than, or about 1% of the federal budget on foreign aid. Isnt there somewhere else you could make a saving. I mean the US has some responsibility for the global financial crisis, it’s contributed to creating some of this poverty. Giving a small amount would be nice and hey some of it actually provides returns to the US budget.
Also you guys get some awful press internationally, 1% is less than other nations commit cutting it wouldn’t be the best press for you.
Maybe look at cutting 4% off of the 54% of military spending. That’d give you 44 Billion to allocate I think.
Hmm, just saw this, the Government does seem to give that same support and more to the US.
Housing and Community 6%
Veterans Benefits 6%
Medicare and Health 6%
Social Security, Unemployment and Labour 3%
Not too bad, but I know your worried about :
perhaps they could do with a small share of the militaries 54% of the budget
Wal-Mart to fix the economy. Walmart encouraged it’s employees to claim for welfare. Surely if Wal-Mart are trying to get your tax money to pay for things they should pay for, then they aren’t the best peoples hands to put your money into.
The Original Email
WALMART VS. THE MORONS (NOT A JOKE)
I know lots of folks don’t like Wal-Mart, but this is fascinating.
This is spot-on.
PLEASE, READ THIS TO THE END. IT IS VERY INTERESTING!!!
Wal-Mart vs. The Morons
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 privatevemployer, and most speak English.
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 240 years to get it right and it is broke.
b. Social Security was established in 1935.
You have had 80 years to get it right and it is broke.
c. Fannie Mae was established in 1938.
You have had 77years to get it right and it is broke.
d. War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 51 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 50 years to get it right and they are broke.
f. Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 45 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 38 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.
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM??
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 is wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!
We’re “broke” and can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc. and the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey and now
Pakistan ( the 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 medicines, and mentally ill without treatment, etc.
Imagine if the GOVERNMENT gave the U.S. the same support they give to other countries. Sad isn’t it?
