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.

Is Walmart trying to position itself to run the United States of America?

    Just some small corrections to the numbers. Wal-Mart's Hourly sales in the US is $34.8 million and worldwide $46 million. Wal-Mart became an international company in 1991, only 19 years ago, when it opened a Sam's Club near Mexico City (oh yeah, we have more in common with Mexico than just Arizona's illegals). Today, Walmart International is a fast-growing part of Walmart's overall operations, with 4,112 stores and more than 680,000 associates in 14 countries outside the continental U.S. and a total sales volume of $100.1 billion in 2010.

    Even though I do understand the economic and social dangers of a monolithic giant like Walmart whose annual sales volume ranks number 22 on the world's list of GDP's right between Poland and Sweden, I have enormous admiration for the way Wal-Mart has embraced and expanded on the capitalistic principles. I wrote about two years ago that Bentonville, Arkansas would be a better capitol than Washington DC and in a Febr. 6 article I warned that Wal-Mart is not a charity. You may want to read it again so you clearly understand that Walmart will go where the profits are. http://www.searchamelia.com/wake-up-
