    New Propoganda Offesive By WalMart. CEO Claims Company is Defender of Poor

    [...]
    Scott was answering a question from an audience member who wanted to know if Wal-Mart would buy more U.S.-made products to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of global transport and to bring manufacturing jobs back from places like China.
    [...]
    "Lest anybody forget, 20 percent of Wal-Mart's customers don't have a checking account and they do not have the economic luxury of making a broader social statement," he told a conference of the Center for Retailing Excellence, part of the University of Arkansas' Sam M. Walton Business College.

    Wal-Mart Stores Inc., which imported $18 billion in goods from China in 2004, has been a lightening rod for critics who say overseas buying by retailers has cost U.S. manufacturing jobs. Wal-Mart has said it finds the lowest prices for its customers and creates jobs at its stores.
    [...]

    Yes, due to the economy created by right wing trolls like the parasites who run walmart, fewer and fewer Americans have any kind of economic viability.

    Mr Scott almost certainly understands, though he'd never publicly admit it, that the so called global economy benefits only a small group of wealthy people, like the Walton family and the CEO of Walmart and Dick the jackal Cheney, and has already systematically destroyed the American middle class and the political freedom that goes with a large, thriving middle class.


    If products were manufactured here, profit would manifest here.

    If the corporatists were forced to play by some sort of federal rules, like the ones they had to play by prior to the Union Busting, cright wing lass warrior "Reagan revolution", they'd be paying fair wages to people .. who could then have checking accounts, among other things.
