LOL @ Walmart

Excerpts from this article:

My favorite detail, though, is this Washington Times report by data hound Luke Rosiak: Wal-Mart heir Sam Walton has apparently given big to Obama’s SuperPAC.

This is at first surprising for a couple of reasons. First, the Waltons tend to be Republican. Second, the conventional wisdom is that megacorps like Wal-Mart are a Republican thing.

But Sam Walton gave the maximum $30,800 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2008, and $40,000 to the OVF this election.

Policy-wise, there’s plenty of reason for the Waltons to like Barack Obama:
  1. Wal-Mart endorsed the employer mandate in ObamaCare, which gives Wal-Mart an advantage by crushing smaller competitors.
  2. Wal-Mart has profited from Dodd-Frank, which fixes the price Wal-Mart has to pay banks for processing debit cards.
  3. Wal-Mart has lobbied for and profits from higher minimum wage.
  4. Wal-Mart is a top beneficiary of eminent domain takings, a government power protected by the types of judges Obama appoints.
  5. Big Business generally benefits from Big Government.
Yes, by all means, let's involve the government in every little decision possible.  The more paperwork and rules and lawyers involved, the better for the average Joe, right?

Walmart backs big government, jeesh, how principled.  I certainly hope they get what they deserve ... and very soon.  I mean, all this guy is doing is giving money to the liberals so he can make more money easier ... never mind asking himself "what is the right thing to do," no, the hell with that.  Thanks a lot, Sam Walton, you braying jackass.

Oh, the shame.
