Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

scrappile, the article that closely backs your claim is an article writtien by a wheaton college professor. it is vaguely quoted on another anti-walmart website. the use of the term "encourages" is dubious to say the least. your utopia of a single, mono-skilled and equal pay job should be unattainable. if i need to list the reasons why, then our conversation past this point will be futile and a waste of my time.....and yours. support your local wal-mart...they employ those that otherwise you would pay to sit on their ***es.

Question: Would anyone consider what the Walton family business model does, be considered wealth redistribution? Taking federal, state, tax deductions, abatements, and suggesting employees, use federal aid programs,while becoming members of the top earners in history, I say yes they are takers....

Instead of providing affordable health insurance, Wal-Mart encourages its employees to sign up for publicly funded programs, dodging its health care costs and passing them on to taxpayers. The company is the poster child for a problem outlined in a 2003 AFL-CIO report on Wal-Mart's role in the health care crisis: "federal, state and local governments" - American taxpayers - must pick up the multi-billion-dollar tab for employees and dependents, especially children, of large and profitable employers who are forced to rely on public hospitals and other public health programs for care and treatment they need but cannot obtain under their employers' health plans.".......source Dollars and Sense magazine, January/February 2005

I dont watch Tiger or golf and I darn sure do not listen to H.Stern. But I dont have much other choices other that go to WalMart since they ran Rinks, and others out of business and are now raising their prices since they have almost done in K-Mart and Sears and Pennys.

their single income fall within the federal guidelines of who qualifies then so be it. gm was at the top of their game in the mid-fifties, almost 60 years ago and i am certain that they were advised of "any" government program for which they would qualify.

scrappile, when i searched your claim on google it returned three links. one of which simply mimiced a few key words. the other two were motherjones and democraticunderground. the latter was a post in a forum. i would find it odd that your claim is not supported outside of that forum post. it is not to say that it isn't true, mind you, but you must admit the obscurity and source of your claim could lead one to question the validity. i would have hoped that you would have commended walmart for advising employees of any government program that is available to them. keep in mind that your tax dollars advise and direct working and non-working folks to a vast choice of government provided resources. heck, we even pay people to fill out the forms for them if that is too challenging of a task. i think you will agree that the single-earner household is not and has not been the norm for some time now. most jobs that walmart offers does not lend itself to fit the single provider role and should

I do not see folks trying to protect Sears workers, JCP, Foot Locker, Victoria Secrets, Value City, LOwes, Home Depot, Sam Club (even though Sam's is owned by the same company ad Wal Mart), Peebles, Kohls, etc.

Wal-Mart: whenever a store opens hundreds line up for job. When workers show up for work I have never seen a supervisor pushing them into the store at gunpoint. It is tough to find parking in a Walmart on Saturday. Shoppers do not wear masks going into Wal-Mart so they must not be ashamed of shopping there. Would people shop in the Walmart grocery section if they had to pay Giant Eagle pricing? Why are people worried about Wal-Mart employees health care since the AFHCA kicks in now and they can go out and buy affordable health care on their own? People don’t blink an eye when it is reported that Tiger Woods make a 100 million a year of Howard Stern makes a 95 million or baseball cheater makes 34 million but they freak out about what the WalMart CEO makes.

chose to switch to government supplied health options. there are many reasons for that decision which i neither have the time nor the inclination to discuss. also, corporations are really no different that groups of people that form political action committees. if you desire to blame anyone for their lack of voice, start and end with the politician. it is their ear and their decision which you need.

scrappile: fact...walmart does not receive food stamps as a benefit. they do however redeem them. in addition, with 2.1 million employees they have a relatively low rate of employees that receive public assitance in some form. i have read on an independent site that it was between 8-10%. considering that number, it could be argued that they are actually lower than our own government numbers for total public assistance without any real productivity. while i am not always a fan of some of their business practices, it should be noted that there are very few with advanced degrees that stock the aisles or buff the floors that would or should qualify for the wages that some seem that walmart (customers) should have to provide. in addition, walmart spends about $3500.00 per employeee for basic health coverage. the national average is about $4200.00 per employee. buying in bulk for the large number of employees would warrant a lower cost. it appeared after some research that many employees ch

So does corporate responsibility=personal responsibility?

Fact: wal~mart is the largest food stamp recipient......of course it is always easier to blame those without a voice, because supreme court injustices said money=free speech.....scotus also said corporation=personhood.....
