NATIONAL: WalMart plays “politics”

Friday, July 03, 2009
It’s the economy (of scale), stupid!

*** begin quote ***

Wal-Mart is playing this masterfully: Cutting the legs from beneath its existing competitors, aborting its would-be competitors in the womb … and getting cookies and milk for “corporate social responsibility” in the process!

Nothing new under the sun, of course — from anti-trust to utilities to you name it, “big business” has always been the moving force behind the “progressive” initiatives supposedly intended to bring it to its knees. Big Government and Big Business are symbiotes.

Another form of “regulatory capture”?

Arresting Jerzee politicians; that’s news?

It’s old news and a function of government. Feather your own nest, reward your friends, and punish your enemies!

When the people want to change the system, they can!

Bring out the tar and feathers. Ostracize the “bad guys”.

Change the system to eliminate the ability to profit from “service”.

Eliminate government pensions and salaries. Term limits strictly enforced.

LONG prison terms for corruption! Stripping the families of ill-gotten gains.
