Reading some of the comments to my recent Wal-Mart entry is a real eye-opener. From where does such twisted logic, hate of the good, and envious destruction of major values come from?
To me, it’s got to be about the most evil thing ever. Someone like a Hitler comes along every now and then, but most everyone clearly recognizes their evil. But great values and great value producers–the true benefactors of all of mankind–are continually attacked and maligned, and not only does the average guy not protest, he jumps right on board.
It’s amazing. Some mornings I get up and I just hate anyone and everyone who’s never signed a paycheck–has no idea what’s it’s like to do that week in and week out–yet has the gall to vomit all manner of rotten runny bullshit about how some great company or great employer is a "blight to humanity" in one way or another.
Fuck. Off. Fuck you all.
Of course, you all know why the left and their hoards of useful-idiot chumps (Democrat Party) are attacking Wal-Mart, don’t you? No, it’s not because Wal-Mart is so sub-urban. If that were the standard, they’d have been after Costco and Home Depot a long time ago. Do-it-yourself home repair and improvement? Mayonnaise and shampoo by the quart? Egad. How gauche.
In reality, it would be a lot tougher to get even dumb-ass democrats to sign on to this exercise in biting the hand that feeds, if the real reason was known and understood. So instead, they spout crap such as I outlined in the foregoing, as well as diversions such as "employee benefits," "discrimination," "unfair business practices." (Like, they actually demand suppliers to sell them X quantity of Y at unit price Z, or take a hike. It’s soooo unfair.)
No, there’s one reason and one reason only that Wal-Mart is under attack. You can find the answer right here. And it’s for this reason that the attack can’t fail. It’s for this reason that this seed, planted by the left and its dumb-as-shit democrats, will eventually be cultivated by the right and its aw-shucks-stupids, the republicans. The government will eventually take the lead. The biggest and best always get taken out, eventually.
Biggest company. Most employees (over 1.2 million). Most paychecks. Biggest payroll, in dollars. Most purchases, adding up to nearly $200 billion (to thousands and thousands of vendors and suppliers, who, in-turn, have employees they pay). In short, they took the principle of the economies-of-scale of a department store and took it to its natural conclusion–and the did it better and bigger than anyone else. They won (well, so far, which is how big business works).
Save for the fact that the evil left, the evil right, and the evil government will eventually "knock them down to size" and this left-right-government trifecta will stand in the way of their growth and expansion, they would spread worldwide, would dramatically raise the standard of living everywhere–even the poorest places on earth, would eventually employ over a billion, and would be the first company worth in excess of a trillion dollars.
Never happen, though. Even people so stupid as to actually enter voting booths might eventually, and with some coaxing, see what Wal-Mart can do with only a trillion dollars–contrasted to what the world’s combined governments do stealing trillions a year from those who actually produce the values.
