Someone sent me this via email and I thought
it was very thought provoking and something
that all entrepreneurs should consider.
Wal-Mart, love them or hate them, it’s hard to argue
with success…. This is not what you think. Please
read it and think about the message and feel free
to share it with anyone!
NO COMMENTS NECESSARY; THIS SIMPLE POST PLACES
EVERYTHING EXACTLY WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE!
Wal-Mart vs. The Swamp
1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart
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, is the
world’s largest private employer, and most speak
6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the
history of the world.
7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than
Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep
in mind they did this in only fifteen years.
8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket
chains sought bankruptcy.
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 Super Centers;
this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.
11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing
experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores.
(Earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)
12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen
miles of a Wal-Mart.
You may think that I am complaining,
but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting
that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart
to fix the economy.
This should be read and understood by all Americans
Democrats, Republicans, EVERYONE!!
To the President and all 535 voting
members of the Legislature, it is now official you
need to look at this:
A. The U.S. Postal Service was established
in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right
and it is broke.
B. Social Security was established in 1935.
You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.
C. Fannie Mae was established in 1938.
You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.
D. War on Poverty started in 1964.
You have had 45 years to get it right;
$1 trillion of our money is confiscated
each year and transferred to “the poor”
and they only want more.
E.. Medicare and Medicaid were established
in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right
and they are broke.
F. Freddie Mac was established in 1970.
You have had 39 years to get it right
and it is broke.
G. The Department of Energy was created in
1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil.
It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with
a budget of $24 billion a year and we import
more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to
get it right and it is an abysmal failure..
You have FAILED in every
“government service” you have shoved
down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.
VA hospitals and care leave lots to be desired!
AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN
BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH
Folks, if we keep this circulating.
Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our
“duly elected’ (they never read anything)
and their staff will clue them in on how Americans
If this speaks to you, pass it on!
