Wal-Mart vs. The 535 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 private employer, 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.

  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 groundwork 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 the 535 voting members of the Legislature

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

  • The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 244 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 84 years to get it right and it is broke
  • Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 81 years to get it right and it is broke.
  • 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.
  • Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.
  • Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 49 years to get it right and it is broke.

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.
AND 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 few months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey…And now Pakistan previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!! (And you can’t agree to a simple $5B for a wall to help keep us safe?!!!)

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?

99% of people won’t have the guts to

send this to their Clown in Office.

Once upon a time somewhere…

…in Central America.

Daily Insanity

Illinois,which touts it gun control laws, evidently doesn’t take them all that seriously. At least when issuing the Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Card.
Hey, what the hell! When another screw up happens, it lets the state and the media rant about guns and shootings.

BREAKING: Illinois Shooter Was Not Allowed To Own A Gun

Yesterday, Gary Montez Martin opened fire at a manufacturing facility in Aurora, Illinois. He murdered five people and wounded several police officers before he shot and killed by law enforcement. The latest update is that Martin shouldn’t have been allowed to own his firearm. He purchased a Smith and Wesson .40 caliber handgun in 2014 but was later discovered to have been convicted of an aggravated assault charge back in 1995 when he tried to apply for a concealed carry permit.  As a result, he should have turned his firearm over to authorities. He didn’t (via NBC News):

Gary Montez Martin, the man who opened fire inside a manufacturing company in Aurora, Illinois, legally should not have been in possession of a firearm, police said on Saturday.

On Friday, Martin, who had been an employee of the Henry Pratt Co. for 15 years, opened fire at a meeting during which he was being terminated from his job, according to Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman.


On Saturday, Ziman said that Martin, 45, purchased a handgun on March 6, 2014, after being issued an Illinois Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) Card in January of that year. The firearm, a Smith and Wesson .40 caliber, was in Martin’s possession as of March 11, 2014.

The FOID card application process includes a background check, but applicants are not fingerprinted, Ziman said

It was only when Martin applied for a concealed carry permit on March 16, 2014, that he was fingerprinted and it was revealed he had a 1995 felony conviction for aggravated assault in Mississippi.

Ziman said that upon the discovery of this conviction, Martin’s concealed carry permit was rejected and his FOID card was revoked

“Absolutely he was not supposed to be in possession of a firearm,” Ziman said.

Chief Ziman added that Martin was mailed a letter noting that his FOID card had been revoked due to the felony charge and that he was required to turn over his handgun to police. Was there a follow-up? That remains to be seen. So, once again we have another instance where the gun control laws already in place weren’t enforced.

This looks like this was a preventable shooting. We’ll keep you updated, but before the anti-gun Left clamors for new restrictions that chip away at our constitutional rights, just remember—the laws already on the books should have kept firearms away from this man. And once again law enforcement appeared to drop the ball. As they had when it came to shooter Dylann Roof in South Carolina and Devin Patrick Kelley in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Why didn’t the police go to his home and confiscate the weapon? In Florida, if someone who has a grudge against you, they can go to the police and say you’re a menace. The police will be at your door to confiscate any guns that you own. Anyone can say your a threat to safety and your rights are abridged.

Why didn’t Illinois do this? Or is it merely a means of riling up the State Owned Media so they can attack GUNS and GUN OWNERS.


Squealing Lefties

A note on the Mueller investigation…


Given all the noise about this government shutdown, do you think it would be nicer to try the next two years WITHOUT a government? Can’t hurt, might be helpful.
Think of all those Congressional salaries we’d save.

Shutdown-shmutdown. Meh! SFW!…from Rico

Democrats (C) and their captive MSM (C) LOVE to scream bloody murder and the end of the world over Government Shutdowns.

– Well, in fairness, it IS…to THEM. For the happy taxpaying slobs aka ‘deplorables’ it’s alternately “meh!” and/or “so fucking what?”

Seriously, when has a Government shutdown had any effect upon anything…or anyone not suckling on the taxpayer’s teat?

– Go ahead, give me one example. I’ll wait…

Look at the NPR* chart attached for a guide to recent Government shutdowns. Try to recall: Did a single one matter or have any consequencewhatsoever? …at least to Joe and Jane Deplorable (I’m not counting the ‘elites’ who always work contrary to the interests of their happy tax-donkeys in the best of cases).

– Apart from providing for the National Defense, the balance of Government should be shutdown permanently, for all it does is intrude itself into the lives of citizens who have been so dumbed-and-beaten down that they have stopped asking the Government “why is that any business of yours?”

*NPR: Taxpayer-funded Leftist-Statist propaganda organ used as a media Judas-goat to lead the sheeple.poi


In 1913, a Progressive President, Woodrow Wilson, created from whole cloth, the Federal Reserve. Despite it’s name, this entity isn’t a Governmental body, it isn’t part of the National Treasury, and furthermore, it doesn’t have your interests in the forefront.

Not very different from the Rothschild’s of France, a dynasty, accomplished by endogamy. The Fed and the bankers here practice something similar akin to a public bathhouse rodeo.

Can or should we rid the Country of the Fed?

Fire the Fed

In one of the most remarkable Abbott and Costello routines in modern times, the economic wizards at the Fed again raised interest rates on Tuesday. Their crackerjack logic for doing so is to steer America on a course toward recession so they have the tools in hand to end the recession that they themselves created. Can anyone tell us who’s on first?

Worse, this Fed move doubles down on its blunderous interest rate rise in September. President Donald Trump turned out to be exactly right: The central bank pullback on money would slow growth and crush the stock market in order to combat nonexistent inflation.

The Fed had already reduced the monetary thrust that it provides to the economy eight times since Dec. 15, 2015, by raising its federal funds interest rate from 0.25 percent to 2.25 percent. Each time, the Fed claimed that it needed to guard our economic airliner from inflationary “overheating” — as if its job is to prevent too many people from working and to make sure that paychecks aren’t rising too quickly.

Unfortunately, if you cut engine power too far on a jetliner, it will stall and drop out of the sky. [snip]

This Federal Reserve committee makes key decisions about interest rates and the growth of the U.S. money supply. FOMC voted to raise the funds rate to 2.50 percent. This sucks more dollars out of the economy at a time when the world is demanding more dollars — thanks to Trump’s tax-cutting and deregulation policies.

Powell has been entirely tone-deaf to the financial markets he seeks to protect. The Dow Jones Industrial average, which had risen by 382 points on hopes that the Fed would listen to Trump and stop cutting power, plunged by 895 points after the 2 p.m. announcement, and closed the day down 352 points (1.49 percent). Poof. Trillions of dollars of wealth vanished.

Since its peak on Oct. 3, which, not coincidentally, was right after Powell gave a speech suggesting that the Fed might be through tightening money, the Dow has fallen by more than 3,500 points. Market fears about his bad judgment have cut the value of all U.S. stocks by about $4.5 trillion, which is enough to buy 16,000 Boeing 787 Dreamliners. [snip]

With this move by the Fed, everything will cost more: Revolving credit, mortgages, car loans, school loans.

The Fed took care of the bankers and the bank/stock house. They collect the interest. You can bet they had stop loses on their stock holdings. They knew in advance; YOU didn’t.


This simple explanation of how we are getting screwed by the Senate should dispel any ideas of your participation in Vox Populi..

Writing ‘Laws’ Explained for the 97%….from Rico

It usually seems like CONgress suffers from a permanent state of cranial-rectal inversion to their electorate [read: voters].
– This is not the case, but rather it is their constituency [read: paymasters] that does. Contrary to popular opinion, this is NOT the voters.

– POTUS does not write laws. Period. (This is Civics 101.)
– CONgress does not write laws (not any more).
– $pecial Interests via their Lobbyists write laws…and they own both the legislators and the legislative process. Since they fund both wings of the Uniparty [R & D], and they do NOT want ‘border security’…guess what? It’ll happen over their dead bodies and/or empty wallets. Meanwhile, the US gets not the best government their tax dollars can buy, but the best government $pecial Interest money can buy.

Right now you are watching McConnell, in open daylight, protecting HIS constituency [read: paymasters]. MItch won’t call the House’s ‘border security’ bill (which includes $5bn for a wall) because:
– He’s doing his job for his paymasters by stalling/stifling a vote.
– The paymasters cannot afford for their bought-and-paid-for Senators to be seen voting against 97%* of the voters wishes.

As Reagan learned (the hard way), the Uniparty does not ‘make’ deals…or ‘keep’…deals.

Now you KNOW how laws are made.

*The 97%: Badly paraphrasing George Orwell here “…football, beer, and above all TV, filled up the horizons of their minds. To get them to vote [Uniparty] was not difficult.”


GM’s problems aren’t new. If one thinks back to the Obama interference in the GM troubles the meddling in the bankruptcy proceedings. Remember how he unlawfully forced out bondholders, stockholders and wanted to give control of the company to the union. They knew if they took ownership, they would be responsible for profits.
What you are seeing is the result of government meddling in private business.

GM to halt production at several plants, cut more than 14,000 jobs

General Motors said Monday it plans to effectively halt production at a number of plants in the U.S. and Canada next year and cut more than 14,000 jobs in a massive restructuring that will cost up to $3.8 billion.

In response, the United Auto Workers vowed to use “every legal, contractual and collective bargaining avenue” to fight the changes.
U.S. President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also criticized the automaker’s decision.

“I am not happy,” Trump told reporters on the White House lawn Monday afternoon, speaking of CEO Mary Barra. “You know, the United States saved General Motors. For her to take that company out of Ohio is not good. I think she is going to put something back in soon.” [snip]

The Detroit automaker said plants in Ohio, Michigan, Maryland, and Ontario will be “unallocated” in 2019 and it will cease operations at two additional plants outside of North America by the end of next year. It will also wind down operations at propulsion plants in White Marsh, Maryland, and Warren, Michigan.

Although the decision effectively shuts down those plants, the company wouldn’t say outright that they are closing. Shuttering a plant is a matter of negotiation with the UAW, GM spokeswoman Stephanie Rice said in an email. [snip]

I defy any individual to show where ANY government meddling in business, operations, physical running of the same has been successful.

Now GM will close plants, layoff workers and finally get rid of the UAW in most of it’s operations.

Of course a Progressives will promise anything to make idiots happy.

Watch: Six Years Ago Obama Promised to Buy a Chevy Volt. Now It Is Dead

Six years ago, President Barack Obama promised to buy a Chevy Volt after his presidency.

“I got to get inside a brand-new Chevy Volt fresh off the line,” Obama announced to a cheering crowd of United Auto Workers activists. “Even though Secret Service wouldn’t let me drive it. But I liked sitting in it. It was nice. I’ll bet it drives real good. And five years from now when I’m not president anymore, I’ll buy one and drive it myself.”

Now it looks like Obama will not get his chance to make good on the promise. General Motors announced Monday that it would cease production of the hybrid electric plug-in Volt and its gas-powered sister car the Cruze. The announcement came as part of a larger restructuring by the car company as it seeks to focus production around the bigger vehicles in favor with U.S. consumers.

The Volt and the Cruze were two of the signature achievements of the partnership between the Obama administration and General Motors following the auto-industry bailout. Although the Volt was long-planned by GM executives, it received a lot of support from the administration. Obama described the Cruze as “the car of the future.”

Both cars reflected the policies of the Obama administration but never really caught on with the car-buying public. They initially enjoyed a brief bout of enthusiasm from consumers but this was short-lived. Particularly after the price of oil fell dramatically, American consumers moved on to larger vehicles such as SUVs.

The failure of both the Volt and the Cruze is instructive. The Volt was a very high-priced car that was heavily subsidized by government policies, both federal and state, favoring electric vehicles. Many thought its high-price tag doomed it, especially since the gas-powered Cruze was a very similar car at a lower price point. But neither achieved the expected sales. These were cars Americans did not want.

Obama, who once described the manufacture of these cars as “jobs of the future,” could not be reached for comment.

So much for a socialist future.


The warm caresses of the socialist political bent once more shows that socialism requires a totalitarian form of governance.
Believe as we do or die.

Don’t expect to see any of this on the Nutworks or the cable news.

Venezuela: Maduro Regimes Continues Military Purge as Arrests Reach Record High

Politically motivated arrests of soldiers and military personnel in Venezuela reached an all-time high in 2018, according to a report from grassroots Venezuelan site Crónica Uno published Monday.

According to the latest figures, 197 members of the military are facing charges on crimes such as incitement to rebellion, treason to the fatherland, and breach of military etiquette, charges meant to target any dissent within the ranks of dictator Nicolás Maduro’s military. The number now surpasses that arrested former Venezuelan dictators Hugo Chávez and Marcos Pérez Jiménez.

As part of their effort to guarantee loyalty, the regime recently began purging high-rankings members of the military who they suspect of disloyalty. In March, Maduro issued a presidential decree announcing that 24 soldiers had been demoted or dismissed from the military over their supposed attempts “to damage the Republic by violent means.”

Some of the individuals dismissed from their military positions included the exiled General Antonio Rivero of the Voluntad Popular party, Hugo Chávez’s former defense minister and imprisoned government critic General Raúl Isaías Badue, and Captain Juan Caguaripano, who last year stormed a barracks and called on the military to overthrow the regime.

Yet there is growing evidence of widespread discontent among lower military ranks, as thousands of soldiers choose to jump ship amid devastatingly low morale caused in large part by a drastic fall in wages that has left many of them unable to access enough food or living essentials.

There have also been various rebellions designed to overthrow the regime, including an alleged assassination attempt against Maduro himself, although none have had any measurable success. Tensions reached a head back in January, following the assassination of the rebel militia leader Óscar Pérez, himself a former police officer. [snip]

Once Maduro gets rid of the untrustworthy, he’ll be free to unleash the military of any and all opposition.
Understand that Maduro’s brand of political BS cannot be wrong. Therefore failure is blamed on those resisting the warm fuzzy caress of Socialism at it’s finest.Or the claw for the unbelievers.

Idiot’s Corner

For those of you who believe Socialism is just a warm and fuzzy governmental friendship, and not Communism, take a gander at Venezuela’s new national ID card.

Venezuela is rolling out a new ID card manufactured in China that can track, reward, and punish citizens

Venezuela is rolling out a new, smart-card ID known as the “carnet de la patria,” or “fatherland card,” manufactured by Chinese telecom giant ZTE Corp.

The ID transmits data about cardholders to government computer servers, and is increasingly linked to subsidized food, health, and other social programs most Venezuelans rely on to survive.

The fatherland card, critics argue, illustrates how China, through state-linked companies like ZTE, exports technological know-how that can help like-minded governments track, reward, and punish citizens.

In April 2008, former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez dispatched Justice Ministry officials to visit counterparts in the Chinese technology hub of Shenzhen.
Their mission, according to a member of the Venezuela delegation, was to learn the workings of China’s national identity card program.

Chavez, a decade into his self-styled socialist revolution, wanted help to provide ID credentials to the millions of Venezuelans who still lacked basic documentation needed for tasks like voting or opening a bank account.

Once in Shenzhen, though, the Venezuelans realized a card could do far more than just identify the recipient.

There, at the headquarters of Chinese telecom giant ZTE Corp, they learned how China, using smart cards, was developing a system that would help Beijing track social, political, and economic behavior.

Using vast databases to store information gathered with the card’s use, a government could monitor everything from a citizen’s personal finances to medical history and voting activity.

“What we saw in China changed everything,” said the member of the Venezuelan delegation, technical advisor Anthony Daquin. His initial amazement, he said, gradually turned to fear that such a system could lead to abuses of privacy by Venezuela’s government. “They were looking to have citizen control.”

The following year, when he raised concerns with Venezuelan officials, Daquin told Reuters, he was detained, beaten and extorted by intelligence agents. They knocked several teeth out with a handgun and accused him of treasonous behavior, Daquin said, prompting him to flee the country.[snip]

But 10 years after the Shenzhen trip, Venezuela is rolling out a new, smart-card ID known as the “carnet de la patria,” or “fatherland card.”

The ID transmits data about cardholders to computer servers. The card is increasingly linked by the government to subsidized food, health, and other social programs most Venezuelans rely on to survive. [snip]

An economic meltdown in Venezuela is causing hyperinflation, widespread shortages of food and medicines, and a growing exodus of desperate citizens. Maduro has been sanctioned by the United States and is criticized by governments from France to Canada as increasingly autocratic. [snip]
