Sam reason why Walmart was cheap in the first place. It fled from high ground rents. Think they didn't know how that worked at the factory?


The Effect of Wal-Mart on Small Towns | Maggie Wood - Academia.edu
About five years ago, Wal-Mart decided to grace the towns of Potsdam and Canton with its presence by putting a superstore between the two towns.

They are a real estate management company. Flee from the rentiers. Now they are the rentiers now that Walmart leases out its malls.

Republicans don't call them freeloaders?

Mitt Romney said "There are 47 percent of the (American) people who are dependent upon government,... who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that's an entitlement. And the government should give it to them...These are people who pay no income tax."
How The Right Wing Media Built Mitt Romney's 47 Percent Line | Research | Media Matters for America


What term does Mitt Romney use to describe those 47% of Americans ??

Rush Limbaugh calls them freeloaders.
Steve Doocy from Fox News says, "With 47 percent of Americans not paying taxes – 47 percent – should those who don’t pay be allowed to vote?"
Dave Ramsey from Fox News says, "These Americans don’t pay anything…that’s just morally wrong."


But you can't believe a single word Fox or Rush says, these Americans do pay certain taxes, and there's huge manipulation going on here. Most of these tax "freeloaders" that Fox news and Rush radio talk about, are full time American workers. They make min wage and get no health insurance at work. And many of these full time workers have children.

These full time workers only make around $16,000 a year, and its just not enough money for them to live on. How can someone afford a apartment, health insurance, and a car on $16,000 a year? Since these Americans are full time workers, democrats give them something called a earned income tax credit. Republicans hate these earned income tax credits, because they only believe in trickle down economics.

Republicans attack tax laws to help these poor American workers, while they fight for this,
Romney's Economic Plan Includes $6.6 Trillion Tax Cut For The Rich And Corporations | ThinkProgress


Or look at republicans this way,
Billionaires have a 17% federal tax rate (because of trickle down economics.)
And Americans who make $90,000 a year have a 30%+ federal tax rate.
And republicans want 0% tax rates on dividends, so billionaires will have a 0% federal tax rate.

Republicans fight against poor workers having 0% tax rates, while they (literally) fight for billionaires to have 0% tax rates.

Its just too stupid...


Page #2 of the following source, explains how these poor American workers do pay taxes.

Mitt Romney-- 47% of us Free-loaders ! - YouTube



The first (republican) response for the above video is "more than 46% of American's are freeloaders. Research it."

Your posting lies !!!

The EITC was started during the Ford Adminstration.
It was expaned under the first Bush Administration.
It was expanded again during the second Bush Administration.

But don't let facts bother you, you're emotions are made up.

Well I am not sure where you are getting your information about Sam Walton and his belief in selling only American made products. When he started out, most everything we used was American made. But regardless, Wal Mart serves a purpose and a particular group, mostly those who can only afford discounted products. Goods made in China are less expensive so they are more affordable for those who can not shop at the high end stores. I do not want to claim everyone who shops at WalMart is poor, but many poor people do depend on WalMart for their food and clothing.

Let me add one more thing: where in the H are you getting the idea the Walton family are not patriotic? They are strong partiots, donate millions to good causes, and help the community and the country so many ways we could not begin to list all of them or even a small portion. Are you familiar with Crystal Bridges for starters?
