I didn't get the exact numbers, but on the car radio today I heard that Wal Mart had made something like four hundred and fifty billion dollars, and I'm thinking, this is a family owned business in which the children of the guy who started it have combined incomes that could wipe our the national debt or solve poverty in the USA and other places as well, etc. but can't give their employees health care or pay them enough to afford a decent place to live or support a family without another breadwinner etc.
And then I thought, the Waltons are like some Middle Ages feudal lords who own everything and the poor peasants barely get by. This is what happens when Republicans are controlled by their right wing which serves the interests of greed and they control the government and courts enough to dismantle all the safeguards created as a result of the Great Depression to prevent this kind of return to feudalism.
The new Dark Ages. Who's got the pitchforks?
