The United States Of Wally World

1 .
At Wal-Mart,
Americans spend $36,000,000 every hour
Of every day.

2 .
This works out to $20,928 profit
Every minute!

3.
Wal-Mart will sell more
From January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th)
Than Target sells all year.

4.
Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot +
Kroger + Target + Sears + Costco +
K-Mart combined.

5.
Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people
And is the largest private employer. And most can't speak English

6.
Wal-Mart is the largest company
In the history of the World.

7.
Wal-Mart now sells more food
Than Kroger & Safeway combined,
And keep in mind they did this
In only 15 years.

8.
During this same period,
31 Supermarket chains sought bankruptcy
(including Winn-Dixie).

9.
Wal-Mart now sells more food
Than any other store in the world.

10.
Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores
In the USA of which 1,906 are SuperCenters;
This is 1,000 more than it had 5 years ago.

11.
This year, 7.2 billion different
Purchasing experiences will occur
At a Wal-Mart store.
(Earth's population is approximately 6.5 billion.)

12.
90% of all Americans live
Within 15 miles of a Wal-Mart

13
Let Wal-Mart bail out Wall Street

I've set foot in Walmart exactly once, while down in Louisiana. They'd already killed off all the small businesses, so there was no where else to go

I hate wal-mart. I can never find any quality pork ribs there. The meat department there sucks.

So we are suppose to hate Walmart because they are so successful? This is not a compelling argument.
