You might not verbally agree with these things but you endorse all of them if you are part of the group of millions of Americans

known as Wal-Mart shoppers and Sam’s Club members.

  From 1986 to 1992 Hillary Clinton served as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors. During those years she remained silent as Wal-Mart busted all union attempts to unionize Wal-Mart workers. At a June 1990 stockholders meeting Hillary said, “I’m always proud of Wal-Mart and what we do and the way we do it better than anyone else.” Hillary Clinton held nearly $100,000 in Wal-Mart stock before she and her husband moved from Arkansas to DC. Hillary now tries to distance herself from Wal-Mart policies and says now she knows better than she knew then. Many unions were dumb enough to believe that and endorsed her for president in 2008. I’m sure these same unions will back her in 2016. The unions might believe she has cut ties with Wal-Mart, but I don’t. I say that because the Wal-Mart Foundation has been a major funder of the Clinton Foundation, donating between $1 and $5 million through 2013.  One of the Walton’s who own Wal-Mart, Alice Walton worth $35 billion—donated the max $25,000 to Ready for Hillary (the Super PAC urging Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016). Hillary might have started her recent book tour at Costco but she showed up at a book signing at a Wal-Mart in Little Rock, Arkansas.

  Hillary by still taking money from Wal-Mart is an apologist for Wal-Mart’s immoral behavior on every social justice issue. When you walk through their doors, or join a Sam’s Club you are also an apologist for their immorality. The Supreme Court considers corporations to be a person. These corporations are not people because they lack a heart and soul. The heart and soul of a corporation is profit. The only way to change a corporation like Wal-Mart is to boycott it until it has a coronary profit attack. Wouldn’t you rather be part of the solution, instead of the problem for our children’s sake?

Wal-Mart: Supply Chain

Confessions of a Wal-Mart Hit Man

“At the end of the day, we supported globalization because we wanted to be able to buy cheaper computers, cheaper vehicles, cheaper clothes and cheaper furniture. Wal-Mart parking lots were jammed with North American workers buying bargain-basement-priced goods made in China even if in the process they were shopping themselves right out of their own jobs.”

  1. + Hillary is guilty by association of all Bill’s crimes, from genocide in E. Timor, NAFTA, deregulation of banks, tossing millions off welfare, the “1 strike and you’re out” laws – the list goes on and on..

    Great points Benjamin. If Hillary is elected it will just be more of the same corporate controlled government. People I talk with keep expressing the need for a strong third party. Then they say we have to keep voting for a Democrat for president, so we don’t get more conservative justices on the Supreme Court. We are in a serious pickle and I don’t know what to think about the future for you young people.

    Well, unless you like Elizabeth Warren(claims she doesn’t want to run for president), Hillary will be my choice for 2016, She may not be perfect, but much better than most Republicans. jj
