Wal-Mart is the job creator and government (federal and state) is the income generator. Government dollars now provide the equivalent of $17,000 of income to every household in the USA or two trillion dollars anually. This is from USA Today, 5 June 2009.

The government of Michigan can solve it's current unemployment problems by being part of the New Iron Triangle: China, Wal-Mart and U.S. government. Wal-Mart buys from China, U.S. Government borrows money from China and government vouchers provide income for families to work and shop at Wal-Mart.

No wonder the students at Peking University laughed AT the U.S. Treasury Secretary the other day.

No wonder the students at Peking University laughed AT the U.S. Treasury Secretary the other day.

Ask them about Tiananmen Square. Ask them about their slave labor policies. Ask them about the growing anti-China sentiment in the First World. Ask them about their lack of attention to quality compared to their enemy, Japan and their First World counterpart, the United States of America. Then laugh heartily at their scripted and memorized CPC responses(or lack of response).

If they bring up any current Middle Eastern conflict, ask them about Article 54 of their Constitution(and if it has been used on a foreign entity).

The government of Michigan can solve it's current unemployment problems by being part of the New Iron Triangle:

Citizens, Business, Government.

US citizens, responsible businesss, accountable government.

> accountable government.

This is the part of it that's a pipe dream in the current socio-political climate.

Gone are the days of Grover Cleveland:

In 1887, Cleveland issued his most well-known veto, that of the Texas Seed Bill.[92] After a drought had ruined crops in several Texas counties, Congress appropriated $10,000 to purchase seed grain for farmers there.[92] Cleveland vetoed the expenditure. In his veto message, he espoused a theory of limited government: "I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and duty of the general government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit. A prevalent tendency to disregard the limited mission of this power and duty should, I think, be steadfastly resisted, to the end that the lesson should be constantly enforced that, though the people support the government, the government should not support the people. The friendliness and charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their fellow-citizens in misfortune. This has been repeatedly and quite lately demonstrated. Federal aid in such cases encourages the expectation of paternal care on the part of the government and weakens the sturdiness of our national character, while it prevents the indulgence among our people of that kindly sentiment and conduct which strengthens the bonds of a common brotherhood."

From the Rasmussen Reports site:

Americans Still Like Wal-Mart, Say It’s Good for the Community

Wal-Mart’s still number one, and Costco has a way to go to catch up.

Sixty-four percent (64%) of Americans have at least a somewhat favorable view of Wal-Mart, including 24% who are very favorable toward the merchandising giant. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 33% view Wal-Mart unfavorably including 15% a very unfavorable view.

These numbers are largely unchanged in surveys going back to 2006. (there's a bit more)

The neatly dressed worker was solicitous--"don't take one of these, I've got a brand new box right here." He ripped open a box of asparagus--packed in Paw Paw, Michigan-- and showed me the full purplish buds compared to the dried up versions that he was removing. I took a bunch -- it would go with the antibiotic-free vegetarian-fed chicken I was having for dinner that night. Where did I get such good service and selection today? The Farmer's Market--nope that li'l ole store on Corunna Road--WalMART!!!
