Biden Hates Wal Mart, Hillary Conflicted

Wal Mart has become one of the rallying cries of the left. Wal Mart refuses to unionize and since the moonbats are in bed with the unions and owe them for donations they are out to get the retail store. Maryland passed laws that were designed to hurt Wal Mart (they were ruled illegal) and the cry has been going for a long time. Wal Mart does not pay enough blah blah, they do not provide adequate health care, blah, blah. I think Larry the Cable Guy said it best when he said if you don’t like what they pay and their benefits then don’t work there.

Joe Biden was recently in Iowa and he was bashing Wal Mart. The first problem is that Joe Biden is from Delaware. His sorry ass does not belong in Iowa unless he is running for a national office. But anyway, here is what he said:

“My problem with Wal-Mart is that I don’t see any indication that they care about the fate of middle-class people,” Mr. Biden said, standing on the sweltering rooftop of the State Historical Society building here. “They talk about paying them $10 an hour. That’s true. How can you live a middle-class life on that?”

Wal Mart is basically a company that offers jobs that do not require a great deal of skill. They are entry level jobs and to pay people $10 for that is ridiculous. In addition, if you are not entry level, in other words you are trying to support a family, and Wal Mart is the only job you can get then your problems are deeper than $10 and hour or health benefits. The donks do not see this because they want to socialize this country so that everyone makes the same amount of money regardless of education of skill. Even moonbats who thought Wal Mart was great are now on the anti Wal Mart bandwagon. Wal Mart used to be real good for Hillary:

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, who was a member of Wal-Mart’s board when she lived in Arkansas, the corporation’s home state, returned a $5,000 campaign contribution from the company last year. Mrs. Clinton said she did so to protest Wal-Mart’s health care benefits, and she has continued to distance herself from the policies of a company she was close to when she was the first lady of Arkansas.

So Hill baby was OK being on their board but now that she has tasted the moonbat kool-aid she needs to return money to protest health care benefits? Why didn’t she do something about health care when she was on the board? I guess Wal Mart’s health care was not important when she worked for them but now that she wants to be president she needs to sing the moonbat’s song. Hillary is just another example of what is wrong with the Democrats.

    If WalMart is so bad, why do they seem to always have triple the people needed when their are job openings? WalMart doesn’t have a union because the people that work for WalMart DO NOT WANT one, or they would organize to have one. I believe (and hope) that continuing to attack a southern founded company that has helped so many will open eyes of those that are blind.

    I agree with you, and consequently you should not earn anything to write this blog!

    EuroYank,
    I do not earn anything to write this blog.

    I imagine that you are referring to the ads in the sidebar.

    When you consider the money I paid for my computers, the networking, my monthly access bill and hosting as well as the time I put in it, I actually lose money, and quite a bit, though I do not consider it a loss because I enjoy this. But the hundreds of dollars I spend a year for this hobby is in no way offset by the 5 or 6 dollars I make from the ads each month, which consequently I usually use to make donations to folks who write software I use.

    However, If I wanted to make money I should be able to do so and if people wanted to work for me doing it they would have to take what I paid and would get the benefits package that I decided on (which would be none by the way).
