Is Obama going to step in and bail them out like he did the car companies?


I heard Dennis Miller say last night, and Im paraphrasing, obama wont jump in to save Twinkies because Michele is too busy trying to ban the hamburger.

I love Dennis Miller.

Now Wal-Mart workers are threatening to walk off the job on Black Friday due to low pay and inadequate health benefits. Here's a suggestion: Don't work at Wal-Mart. I hope WM fires them all and replaces them with returning veterans.

I don't see any reason to insult returning veterans that way. Retail is the pits. Why would they want to work at Wal-Mart?

A returning veteran might snap in Wal Mart, bad idea to have them working there. Every time I go into Wal Mart I wanna get out fast! It reminds me that alot of Americans can be as nasty as Iraqi or Afgahni national's. Sad but true.

It wasn't meant to be an insult. Veterans are having a hard time finding jobs when they return. I'm not saying they have to work there forever, it's more of a stepping stone. Replace the lazy bums working there (no, not all of them are that way) with good people that do want to work. When I got out of the Army, the job market was really bad. I had to take a job at Macy's working in the women's shoe department. The position itself wasn't that bad, but the pay/benefits sucked. But I did what I had to do. But I loved my job, getting to rub women's legs all day. But my point is that it was just a stepping stone while I went to college and I think it would be good for vets.
