Obamaconomy Update: Walmart To Close 269 Stores, 154 In U.S.

Wal-Mart To Shutter 269 Stores, 154 Of Them In The US – CNS

.
…………….

.
Wal-Mart is closing 269 stores, more than half of them in the U.S. and another big chunk in its challenging Brazilian market.

The stores being shuttered account for a fraction of the company’s 11,000 stores worldwide and less than 1 percent of its global revenue.

More than 95 percent of the stores set to be closed in the U.S. are within 10 miles of another Wal-Mart. The Bentonville, Arkansas, company said it is working to ensure that workers are placed in nearby locations.

The store closures will start at the end of the month.

The announcement comes three months after Wal-Mart Stores Inc. CEO Doug McMillon told investors that the world’s largest retailer would review its fleet of stores with the goal of becoming more nimble in the face of increased competition from all fronts, including from online rival Amazon.com.

“Actively managing our portfolio of assets is essential to maintaining a healthy business,” McMillon said in a statement. “Closing stores is never an easy decision. But it is necessary to keep the company strong and positioned for the future.”

Wal-Mart operates 4,500 in the U.S. Its global workforce is 2.2 million, 1.4 million in the U.S. alone.

Wal-Mart has warned that its earnings for the fiscal year starting next month will be down as much as 12 percent as it invests further in online operations and pours money into improving customers’ experience.

Of the closures announced Friday, 154 locations will be in the U.S., including the company’s 102 smallest-format stores called Wal-Mart Express, which were opened as a test in 2011.

Wal-Mart Express marked the retailer’s first entry into the convenience store arena. The stores are about 12,000 square feet and sell essentials like toothpaste. But the concept never caught on as the stores served the same purpose as Wal-Mart’s larger Neighborhood Markets: fill-in trips and prescription pickups.

Also covered in the closures are 23 Neighborhood Markets, 12 supercenters, seven stores in Puerto Rico, six discount stores and four Sam’s Clubs.

Wal-Mart will now focus in the U.S. on supercenters, Neighborhood Markets, the e-commerce business and pickup services for shoppers.

The retailer is closing 60 loss-making locations in Brazil, which account for 5 percent of sales in that market. Wal-Mart, which operated 558 stores in Brazil before the closures, has struggled as the economy there has soured. Its Every Day Low price strategy has also not been able to break against heavy promotions from key rivals.

The remaining 55 stores are spread elsewhere in Latin America.

Wal-Mart said that it’s still sticking to its plan announced last year to open 50 to 60 supercenters, 85 to 95 Neighborhood Markets and 7 to 10 Sam’s Clubs in the U.S. during the fiscal year that begins Feb. 1. Outside the U.S., Wal-Mart plans to open 200 to 240 stores.

The financial impact of the closures is expected to be 20 cents to 22 cents per diluted earnings per share from continuing operations with about 19 cents to 20 cents expected to affect the current fourth quarter. The company is expected to release fourth quarter and full year results on Feb. 18.

Shares of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. fell $1.12, or 1.7 percent, to 61.94 in morning trading.

Homeless Couple Caught With 2 Pounds Of Meth Living In Lap Of Luxury Above Tennessee Walmart

Homeless Couple Found Living In Walmart… You’ll Never Guess What They Were Doing – Buzzpo

.

.
Police and store employees are baffled by this couple who were “living the lap of luxury” above a Tennessee Walmart store.

48-year-old Wilbert Thomas, who is ‘homeless though he admitted to police that he and his girlfriend, 54-year-old Ingrid Malone, had been living above the store for over two years.

What they were doing up in the attic is what puts the icing on the cake.

“I don’t mean to laugh, but these people really got one over on Walmart,” said Lieut. Marshall Weiss.
.

“In the attic, we recovered 2 pounds of meth they had somehow produced on a hot plate. They also managed to get food, drinks, mini refrigerator, a big screen TV, surround sound system, bedroom set, hangers, clothes… I mean, if Walmart sells it they had it. These people were living good. They even managed to splice into the satellite TV wire and ordered NFL Sunday ticket!”

.
Police reportedly found them when someone heard odd noises coming from the attic. Apparently they were engaging in intercourse to test out their new queen size bed from Walmart, of course.

PC-Nazism Update: Walmart To Melt Down Graduation Rings Because Of Confederate Symbol (Video)

Walmart Will Melt Down Graduation Rings Ordered By Customer Because They Have Confederate Symbol – Right Scoop

.
..

.
We were told that those opposed to the Confederate flag simply wanted it to be taken down from public spaces, but now we’re seeing more and more that we’re heading towards a totalitarian banning of the symbol. Walmart already looked like fools when they made an ISIS cake but not a confederate cake, and now they’re making things even worse:

.

.
More from Fox News:

An Arkansas woman who went to pick up the class ring she ordered from Walmart left disappointed, after store officials told her the retailer’s new policy barred them from turning the item over – because it bore an image of the Confederate flag.

Elaine Glidewell told KFSM someone from the store in Fort Smith called her to pick up the ring she’d ordered for her nephew, but when she arrived on Tuesday, a clerk told her she couldn’t have it. The ring had been ordered before Walmart stopped selling items bearing images of the flag, in the wake of controversy that stemmed from a racially-charged shooting in South Carolina.

“I wanted to cry,” Glidewell told KFSM, adding that the store clerk said the ring would be “melted.”

Glidewell said she paid $320 for the ring and was going to present it to her nephew, who recently graduated. He had expressed interest in a design that bore a Rebel mascot that incorporates the Confederate battle flag. She got her money back, but no ring.

“They wouldn’t let me have the ring. It had a note on it, was in a plastic bag, it said do not sell. It was signed by the store manager,” Glidewell said.

Earlier we posted the story about some guy who called the cops because he was “offended” by a flea market vendor selling confederate and Nazi items. Thanks Obama!!

Anti-Gun Assclown Taken Away In Handcuffs After Attacking Lawful Gun Owner In Walmart Parking Lot

Anti-Gun Nut Goes Full Retard And Attacks Conceal Carry Holder… Doesn’t End Well – Universal Free Press

The paranoid delusions of yet another anti-gun nut was put on full display at a Florida Walmart on Tuesday, when a man legally carrying his firearm was attacked as he was in the parking lot of the store.

.

.
Michael Foster apparently caught a glimpse of 62-year-old Clarence Daniels’ holstered firearm that was under his coat and felt the need to take matters into his own hands. Coming up behind Daniels, Foster put him into a choke-hold and wrestled him to the ground, while yelling out, “THIS MAN HAS A GUN!”

While the two men struggled, Daniels yelled back that he had a permit to legally carry his gun. After police arrived on the scene, they quickly learned that Foster didn’t call 911 or alert store security over his concern before he decided to attack the man. Realizing that Daniels posed no threat and was legally carrying his weapon, the officers arrested Foster at the scene, charging him with battery for attacking a law-abiding gun owner.

Obviously, if you’re going to conceal carry you should make sure that your weapon is fully concealed; however, it’s absolutely absurd that a man would tackle someone after seeing someone’s holstered firearm without first assessing the situation or notifying the authorities. Unfortunately, the liberal media is brainwashing people like Foster on a daily basis into believing someone with a firearm is a threat. With an abundance of misinformed idiots out there like Foster, it is better for everyone if these types of situations can be avoided all together.

14-Year-Old Boy Caught Living In Texas Walmart (Video)

Teenager Made Corsicana Walmart His Home – KTVT

His age 14. His address Walmart.

.

.
Employees of a Corsicana Walmart were shocked to find a teenage boy secretly living inside the store for several days.

.

.
The teen wasn’t just hiding in the store. He built a secret hidden compound and was able to call the 24-hour store home for four days before being discovered.

.

.
CBS 11 News obtained exclusive photos of two campsites at the Walmart in Corsicana. One of them was on the aisle carrying baby products behind boxes of strollers. The other was behind stacks of paper towels and toilet paper.

“You never expect that you’re at Walmart and someone has been living there for four days. That’s crazy,” said Myrna Aguilar, a Walmart customer.

Customers who walked down the aisles where the teen was living never noticed two hidden compounds where the boy was able to store necessities, sleep in a makeshift bed and and eat items taken from inside the store.

.

.
He created a crack in the back wall of the drink aisle to grab juice and even collected a fish from the pet department.

The photos show the clothing that employees say the boy would change in and out of every few hours to avoid detection.

.

.

.
Sources said the 14-year-old was so concerned about being caught he wore diapers instead of using the store restroom.

Eventually, a trash trail led to the teen’s discovery.

.

.

.
Police were called and released the boy to the custody of relatives.

“I’m wondering what his parents think, and how come he didn’t come home, and why aren’t they worried about him,” said customer Megan Nicholson.

The boy lives with relatives, but was visiting other relatives when he disappeared.

Sources said the teen tried to run out of the store when he was discovered.

CPS said they are usually called in to investigate cases like this but were not called this time.

There’s no indication Walmart plans to file criminal charges at this point.

Illegal Aliens Arrive On Bus To Shop At North Carolina Walmart With Taxpayer-Funded Debit Cards (Video)

Obama’s Illegal Alien ‘Youth’ Arrive In Bus And Shop At Walmart With Federal Debit Cards… Money Taken Out Of Your Paycheck – Pat Dollard

.

.
Excerpted from Mad World News: If we were to listen only to the mainstream media and the talking points from the White House, they would have us believe that not only is the government doing everything possible in order to stop the invasion of our Southern border, but those who are crossing are refugee children who can’t be turned away. However, a video that was recorded on Sunday by a North Carolina woman places serious doubts on whether or not either of those things are true, as it allegedly shows busloads of adult illegal immigrants getting dropped off at a local Walmart to shop for supplies for their shelter.

Sylvia Locklear was on her lunch break Sunday afternoon around 1:30 p.m. when she noticed something strange happening in the parking lot of Walmart in Concord, NC – there was busloads of what appeared to be adult illegal immigrants being dropped off to shop for everything from food to pillows and blankets.

We all know that this has been happening, however, the sheriff of her town had said that they weren’t allowing any illegals to be shipped in, so it would appear as if the Obama regime is once again placing undue burdens on the states and not even letting them know what’s going on. What’s worse is that in the comments under the video she posted to Facebook, Sylvia said that when she was in line behind them that they were using government-issued EBT cards to pay for their purchases.

Your Range Report for a Christmas Eve

What to do on Christmas Eve?  Well, like millions of others I had to do some final shopping, so I did hit Wal Mart, which was not as crowded as I thought it might be, except for the toy department, which, or course, is where I needed to shop. Anyway, before the shopping, I decided to take an opportunity to visit the gun range, and I am glad I did. I decided to shoot the usual 100 rounds with my Sig p250, and shot further than the last time, when I went between 7-11 yards. I spread my shots from 9-15 yards, with over half from 12 yards or beyond, except for my last magazine, which I just fired as rapidly as I could from about 6 yards. Anyway, like last week, I went for as much speed as possible, gun up, on target, fire. I am really used to the double action trigger now, I have the reset point down, and it showed in my shooting. 

Out of 100 rounds, I had 96 in the 8-10, not quite as good as my 98 out of 100 last time, but I put 87 of those in the 9-10 rings, better than last trip’s 75, and I had about 40 of those in the 10 circle, it is hard to tell exactly since a good portion of the 10 ring was gone. So, overall my best day of shooting. I was darned proud of myself. Then I came home and watched this guy, Max Michel  who captains the Sig Sauer shooting team

At age 31, Max Michel is a legend within the world of competitive shooting. A three-time World Speed Shooting Champion, six-time USPSA National Champion, and three-time US National Steel Champion, Max is a dominant force in pistol shooting sports. Born and raised in New Orleans, LA Max began shooting when he was just 5 years old. In 1999 Max joined the famed USAMU’s Action Pistol Team and served in the U.S. Army for 10 years as an Army shooter and trainer. Max is also the current captain of the Team SIG SAUER shooting team. Today, Max is recognized worldwide as a top tier athlete and instructor.

18 shots, and two reloads in under 5 seconds? DAMN! 

Here is the best advice for a new shooter

 

Obama’s National Labor Relations Board OKs Union Paying Workers To Protest Walmart

Labor Relations Board OKs Union Paying Workers To Protest Walmart – Washington Examiner

National Labor Relations Board lawyers OKed a major union’s practice of paying people to protest against Walmart in a legal memorandum earlier this month. The federal labor law enforcement agency said the practice of paying workers $50 apiece to join protests “did not constitute unlawful… coercion of employees.”

.

In a Nov. 15 memorandum from the NLRB’s general counsel office regarding the so-called “Black Friday” protests staged by United Food and Commercial Workers against the nonunion retailer last year, the NLRB lawyers determined that the UFCW’s offer of $50 gift cards to the first 700 Walmart employees who showed up to protest “was a non-excessive strike benefit.”

The lawyers said there was “no evidence to indicate that the gift card was meant to buy support for OUR Walmart.” (CORRECTION: See below.)

OUR Walmart, which presents itself as a group of disaffected Walmart workers, is identified as a subsidiary of UFCW in the memorandum. Along with another UFCW-backed group, Making Change at Walmart, UFCW has been orchestrating a series of public relations attacks against the retailer.

Peter Schaumber, a former NLRB chairman who now works with pro-business groups, agreed the practice would not be illegal, “but really, what it says is that those people are out there protesting because they are getting paid.”

UFCW’s members mostly work for Walmart’s rivals. The union has tried for years to organize Walmart’s 1.3 million-member U.S. workforce with no success.

The groups are planning another wave of anti-Walmart strikes this week, highlighting the low pay of some employees. They claim they will have events at as many as 1,500 store locations across the country.

What the protests seem to be largely lacking, though, are actual Walmart employees. At events across the country last year, local media struggled to find anyone on the picket lines who also worked at the store. Some events had none at all.

A second NLRB advice memorandum released on Nov. 15 highlighted this problem for the protesters. It found that Walmart management’s forcing picketers to leave at two different Nov. 22, 2012, protests in Texas was not illegal because one group of protesters had only one Walmart employee. The other protest had none at all. Only when the protests involve employees does the law allow them on company property.

An NLRB spokesman declined to comment on the memos. A spokesman for UFCW or OUR Walmart could not be reached.

The gift-card advice memo is not the first time an action from the NLRB’s general counsel has helped the anti-Walmart crusade. On Nov. 19, the counsel’s office revealed it was investigating complaints of alleged retaliation by Walmart against employees for participating in last year’s Black Friday strikes.

The announcement was made not by the NLRB, but by OUR Walmart during a media call to announce its Walmart protests. Also present at the media call was AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and UFCW President Joe Hansen.

The NLRB’s lawyers had apparently alerted OUR Walmart just before its media call. The NLRB itself did not publicly confirm the news until hours later.

The agency’s general counsel is Richard Griffin, a former NLRB boardmember and, before that, a top lawyer for the AFL-CIO-affiliated International Union of Operating Engineers. Labor officials had campaigned hard for both his board nomination and his appointment as counsel.

News releases from the union-backed activist groups include the unusual disclaimer: “UFCW and OUR Walmart have the purpose of helping Walmart employees as individuals or groups in their dealings with Walmart over labor rights and standards and their efforts to have Walmart publically [sic] commit to adhering to labor rights and standards. UFCW and OUR Walmart have no intent to have Walmart recognize or bargain with UFCW or OUR Walmart as the representative of Walmart employees.”

The disclaimer serves to protect OUR Walmart from charges that it is engaged in illegal union organizing activities. Under labor law, groups cannot protest a company for more than 30 days without filing notice that they seek to organize its workers. After that, the protests must end. The disclaimer allows OUR Walmart to stage continual protests despite the fact that it is an arm of UFCW.

CORRECTION: The article incorrectly stated that OUR Walmart’s $50 gift cards were available “to anyone who showed up to protest” implying that non-Walmart employees could get them. The NLRB memorandum states that the cards were only offered to Walmart employees. The article’s headline has been amended.

Gov. Jindal Moves To Strip Food Stamp Benefits From Welfare Leeches Who Stripped Walmart Shelves Clean

Awesome: GOP Gov. Bobby Jindal Moves To Strip Food Stamp Benefits From Welfare Leeches Who Stripped Walmart Shelves Clean – Weasel Zippers

Feel good story of the day.

.

Via Baton Rouge Advocate:

The Jindal administration announced late Wednesday that it is moving to strip food stamps from recipients who took advantage of a technical glitch last month to stock up on free groceries.

The announcement came after U.S. Sen. David Vitter, R-La., pressured state officials to take action by taking away food stamp benefits and forming a task force with local prosecutors to bring criminal charges. Retailers lost money when they allowed food stamp recipients to leave their stores with groceries even though they could not check spending limits. When the transactions were processed later, thousands bounced back because recipients exceeded their food stamp balances.

Smartphone images of empty store shelves and bulging grocery carts at Wal-Marts in Springhill and Mansfield made national news.

The state Department of Children and Family Services said Wednesday that retailers across the state got 12,000 nonsufficient funds messages when the food stamp system came back online. The agency’s spokeswoman, Lindsey deBlieux, said investigations are ongoing to determine how many people took advantage. Retailers could have tried to process transactions multiple times. Recipients also could have made multiple purchases.

Video double feature time

Twice the Blogging role Model, Twice the fun,

First Michelle destroys a Leftist gun control zealot.

I do wish Michelle had told this nitwit that it is ALREADY illegal for anyone under 21 to buy a handgun. But, it is hard when he would not shut his mouth for fear of facts being brought up. My question is this guy that stupid, or is he just preaching what has been programmed into his brain?

Next Michelle points out the racist motive of the Oklahoma murder, and the typical Leftist double standard

 

 

Why do Leftists lie?

Several reasons, first it is critical to the perpetuation of Leftism. Since Leftist theory does not translate well to the real world, Leftists must lie to perpetuate the great lie, that Marxism works. Bob Owens exposes another reason leftists lie. That reason being they can portray Conservatives as hateful, and backwards, until Bloggers like Bob Owens but them

….when I heard about Katie Vyktoriah’s “pink headband” story I jumped on it with both feet.

It was so self-evidently fake, with such poorly-fabricated stereotypical dialogue, that it simply wasn’t plausible for anyone that grasps language and human interaction… which, I suppose is why it was so credulously echoed by the not-so-swift folks on the political left, who were eager to promote the “vicious intolerant Walmart Bubba” meme.

Sadly, Vyktoriah’s fiction writing experiment got away from her, and she is now on suicide watch.

A mommy blogger whose post ‘What happened when my son wore a pink headband to Walmart’ went viral on the Internet last weekend was Baker Acted after making suicidal comments to deputies Monday, according to a Lake County Sheriff’s Office report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.

On Aug. 2, the blog post, written under the byline Katie Vyktoriah, was published on the Huffington Post website and quickly went viral.

The Sheriff’s Office report identified the blogger as Kathleen Carpenter. In the blog, the author wrote that her two-year-old son had worn a pink headband in a Central Florida Walmart store, and a man approached her and yelled out, “That’s a boy?!” according to the post. Here’s what the author wrote next:

“With no notice, the man stepped forward, grabbed the headband off of Dexter’s head and threw it to the bottom of our shopping cart. He then cuffed Dexter around the side of his head (not hard, but that is not the point) and said with a big laugh, ‘You’ll thank me later, little man!’”

Then according to the post, the man hurled a homophobic epithet at her toddler.

The post was picked up by media all over the Internet, and soon, people posted outraged comments of support for the mother. But there were also comments questioning the validity of her story.

In the post, she wrote that she did not notify the store management or the police about the incident when it occurred.

According to Polk County Sheriff’s Office documents, at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, the Sheriff’s Office received a call from Carpenter’s home reporting that Carpenter and her son were harassed at Wal-Mart the week before and that after she blogged about the incident, “now they are receiving threats.”

The report on the “harassing/obscene phone calls” was written up by a deputy on Monday. In it, the deputy notes that patrols have been requested in the area for the next two weeks in response to the threats.

In an update on her Facebook page, “A Mother Thing” late Saturday, the woman wrote “The Polk County Sheriff’s Deputy has just left our home, and all information about the original Wal Mart incident and the ongoing harassment has been documented and is being dealt with. I have been advised NOT to say any more about the situation, as the investigation is ongoing, so thank you all for your support, but I am going to be offline for the next while until all of this is resolved.”

No further posts have been written and her “A Mother Thing” blog has been taken down.

According to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office report, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office became aware of Carpenter’s blog post detailing the alleged incident at a Wal-Mart in Clermont. SincePolk County was eventually mentioned specifically in the blog as being the responding agency, a Sheriff’s Office lieutenant requested a deputy go meet with Carpenter.

Another Polk Sheriff’s report states that on Monday at about 9 p.m., a deputy went to Carpenter’s home to “assist” the Lake Sheriff’s office with the battery case, since it had allegedly taken place in Lake County. While deputies were there, Carpenter explained that her two-year-old had been battered at the Wal-Mart. Then, according to the report, she “made statements that met the criteria for a Law Enforcement Baker Act.”

Carpenter told deputies, according to the report, “that the attention obtained by her story and the negative comments and communications to her had become too much stress and she could not handle the situation…anymore,” and was thinking of killing herself.

At that time, she was taken into custody by the Polk deputy under Florida’s Baker Act, which allows law-enforcement to hospitalize people for mental-health evaluation.

If I’m reading this correctly, it appears Vyktoriah lied about the deputies coming to her home Saturday; she had merely called them (so she lied about the events there, too). They came out Monday after hearing her claim they had been there on Saturday, and that’s when she said things that caused the men in the white coats to come out and haul her off to the loony bin.

I pity Vyktoriah. She’s a sad and fragile creature that has to fabricate realities because her reality-based community is just that: reality-based (“-based” concedes it is not actually reality, but a poor facsimile thereof). She’s just the latest Jayson Blair, Stephen Glass, Scott Beauchamp, etc, who has authored a fantasy world when the progressive fantasyland doesn’t match up with what they think it should resemble.

See, like I said, when the facts do not match their feelings, Leftists retreat to their “special place” where feelings trump reality. The trouble with lying, of course, is that one lie usually requires future lies, and well, that does not end well. Once the police became involved, this woman had to either fess up, or keep lying, and well, she went with the let me just keep lying approach. I wonder if that strategy led her to play the “I am thinking of killing myself” card, thinking it would garner more sympathy. That is never a good one to play around police. When that card is played, they have to play the “OK your ass is going to be Baker Acted” card. See Libs, see where relying on lies gets you? Sure Huffington Post jumped all over this, because it fits their agenda, so the strategy of making up stories about evil Conservatives worked initially, but the truth eventually came out, as it always does.

 

Paula Deen and the war on freedom of speech

Paula Deen is being absolutely ravaged by the Political Correctors of America because she admitted to using that dreaded word that starts with the letter “n” 27 years ago. Food Network fired her, Target and Wal-Mart have stopped carrying her products, and now Sears has booted her as well. In addition Deen is being trashed by Leftists at every turn. This despite her repeated apologies. Is this the future of America? A future were everyone has the freedom to speak, but is deathly afraid of using it? The Left, of course, is free to go Alec Baldwin all the time, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson have quite the history of saying racist, or Homophobic things, yet no outrage ensues. Tune into MSNBS any night and you can hear vile things said. Racism, check, Sexism, check, character assassinations left and right? Double  Check!  So this is not just about hypersensitivity is it?

Only certain people are targeted, usually Liberals are free to rant like lunatics, trashing White people, men, Southerners, and any minority that dares vote Republican. But Deen supported Obama in 2008. But she is a Southern woman, with a great accent, so maybe that is part of it. Southerners are all RAAAAACISTS according to Leftist doctrine, and it is always open season on Southerners, so maybe the Left just assumed Deen is a Conservative and jumped on her for the crime of being Southern.

Whatever it is, it is deeply troubling. This is the byproduct of PC, this is the natural evolution of Left’s obsession with “equality” and tolerance. The Left claims the moral high ground of sensitivity and tolerance, but anyone who dares challenge the guidelines of that tolerance is subject to having their  life destroyed. Paula Deen is the latest example, but she will not be the last. Her case might be the most absurd example, but more absurd examples will soon follow. Ultimately, this is a campaign by the Left to completely control the dialogue in America. They wish to tell us all what to think, and what to say. This is about Totalitarianism. That is what PC has evolved into isn’t it?

 

Are you a Democrat Slut? Do you have problems with basic math? The Other McCain can help

 

RS McCain is offering to help Democrat sluts with math problems, and the tuition? Stacy is not charging, but At $15,ooo it would still be less than the cost of that birth control you ladies want the government to pay for

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The image above is one of the “e-Cards” available at BarackObama.comthat offers a phony statistical argument for ObamaCare:

Dear Mom,
Mitt Romney says he would repeal the Affordable Care Act.
So here’s a quick question:
Can I borrow $18,000 to help pay for my birth control?
Thanks!

Whoa! $18,000 for birth control? If that number sounds strangely large to you, join the club. Conservative college student Christine Rousselle does the math, based on the simple fact that there are 14,600 days between the ages of 12 and 52:

Because our letter-writer has been reduced to asking her mom for money, we’re going to assume that she’s not very well off and she’s a bargain hunter. On Amazon.com, one can purchase a fishbowl filled with a variety pack of 144 Durex brand condoms for $25.89. Assuming she’d use one condom per day every single day between the ages of 12 and 52, that only equals $2,624.96 for 14,600 Durex condoms. For those of you who aren’t great at math, $2,624.96 is far less than $18,000. She’d have to be using around four or five condoms a day for 40 years for that number to even approach $18,000.
Suppose our cash-strapped friend prefers to use the birth control pill instead of condoms. In 41 states, she can get the pill for $9 a month at a Target or Walmart. That totals $108 per year, and $108 multiplied by 40 is $4,320, which still winds up less than $18,000. In the nine other states, the cost per month is around $30, which reaches around $14,400 over 40 years. These figures assume that our letter-writer plans on using birth control pills over the full length of time that she is able to get pregnant.

Using birth control every single day for 40 years, a slut’s total cost is still not $18,000 in a lifetime. So even if she’s putting out like a Pez dispenser — and, after all, she’s a Democrat, IYKWIMAITYD — she’ll have plenty of cash left over for vodka and Newports.

Man , that McCain guy is a giving man!

 

Beware those Wal Mart specials

Via The Blaze

LEWISTON, Idaho (The Blaze/AP) — A man says he reached down to pick up a stick lying in the outdoor gardening aisle of a Walmart in eastern Washington state, only to discover that it was a rattlesnake that then bit his hand.

Mica Craig says he was shopping in the outdoor garden department of a Clarkston store when he was bitten Saturday. The 47-year-old man says it latched onto his hand and that he screamed, shook loose the snake and stomped it to death. More specifically, according to the Lewiston Tribune, he said he “did a tap dance on it and got it killed.”

The Tribune in Idaho reports a bystander drove Craig to an emergency room in nearby Lewiston. The Boise Weekly reports he was sent home at first without treatment as it was believed no venom was injected, but when he got home his arm had swelled to the “size of a cantaloupe.” This time at the hospital, he said he received six bags of anti-venom and was told his hand would be permanently disfigured.

 

Man Dressed As Cow Steals 26 Gallons Of Milk From Walmart

Man Dressed As Cow Steals 26 Gallons Of Milk From Walmart – Potomac Local

Perhaps he was thirsty, or it was because he never got enough calcium as a child, or maybe he had a thing for dressing like a farm animal.

Whatever the reason Stafford sheriff’s authorities say a man donned a cow costume and crawled into a Walmart store on Garrisonville Road (Va. 610) in North Stafford at 10:35 p.m. Tuesday.

Authorities say he found a shopping cart and then pushed it to the milk isle.

Now on two feet, security guards inside the store say the upright cow was caught on video tape placing 26 gallons of milk – about $92 worth – into a the shopping cart, and then rolled it out of the store.

A manager called 911 to report the larceny that was caught on video tape.

At one point someone reported a man in a cow suit was trying to give away the milk to customers, said Stafford sheriff’s spokesman Bill Kennedy.

A sheriff’s deputy took a police report, and shortly thereafter was then called to a disturbance at a McDonald’s restaurant across the street.

Three cars awaited the deputy in the parking lot of the fast food joint, and when he began asking questions he noticed one man looked similar to a person he had just seen on video wearing a cow costume, liberating the milk, said Kennedy.

The deputy brought the man back to the Walmart store where he was identified as the cow culprit, said Kennedy.

Jonathan Payton, 18, of North Stafford was issued a summons for shoplifting, and was released on his own recognizance.

As for the milk: a store manager found it sitting in a shopping cart outside the store. The cow costume was also recovered.
