20. The Waltons, WalMart, and other Global Corporations are doing...

...exactly what our politicians (Democrats & Republicans) have given them permission to do.

It is unbelievably naive to expect Corporations to have a conscience or morals.
They are paper creations designed for One Purpose and One Purpose ONLY,
and that purpose is to return the maximum profit possible to the investors,
and THAT is not a bad thing.

The Bad Thing happens when our politicians, elected to represent US, sell out to the Corporations,
and decide to remove "regulations" that our fathers and grandfathers fought and died for.

At one time, not so long ago, there were Unfair Competition "regulations" that prevented stores like WalMart
from moving into an area and undercutting locally owned businesses that paid living wages and benefits.

You can Hate-On The Waltons if that makes you feel good,
but if you want to correct this problem,
turn that anger on the people who are responsible for this problem,
the ones WE elect,
and DEMAND Accountability & Representation.



Sorry, Virginia,
but there is NO Invisible Hand,
and no such thing as "Free Trade" or "Free Markets".
Like other religions with invisible deities,
this new religion is a SCAM invented by The RICH to get more money for themselves,
and sold to gullible Americans by Smooth Talking Con Men.

The Graven Image on the altar

of the new Church of the Invisible Hand.


If YOU Work for a Living,
do NOT trust ANY politician who expresses a belief in "Free Trade", "Free Markets"
or an "Invisible Hand".
NONE of those things exist,
and that politician is NOT your friend.

You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their rhetoric, promises, or excuses.
