What’s going on at Walmart?

I like Walmart.  On my birthday last November, they were running a $399 special on Compaq laptops.  Some of y’all asked me how long I thought a $399 laptop would last.  I got the answer today when it fizzled out.  But, it’s not what you might think.  You see, I had this 7:00 am conference call, and I was still a little groggy when I accidentally poured my 2nd cup of coffee on the keyboard.  But it got me to thinking, a lot has been happening at Wally World lately.   For example:

1) A year ago, Walmart announced that they would stop selling guns in a third of its stores

2) Last Fall, Walmart got out ahead of the pack by announcing sales goals of 100 million compact fluorescent light bulbs. The twisted curly replacements for incandescent bulbs promise energy savings, yada yada yada, and are loved by the environmental left.

3) Last Winter, Walmart announced $4 prescriptions.  Over 300 generic drugs for $4 a month.  Quite a deal for low income and seniors, yada, yada, yada.

4) A couple of months ago, Walmart joined with the Service Employees Int’l Union to call for universal health care by 2012, achieving quality, affordable, yada, yada, yada, for all Americans.

5) Today, Walmart announced that it will partner with hospitals and other organizations to open clinics in 400 of its stores. “The clinics are going to provide something our customers and communities desperately need — affordable access at the local level to quality health care, yada, yada, yada,” said Walmart CEO Lee Scott.

You would think that with these developments that the political left might cut Walmart a break.  You would be wrong.

Trying to satisfy the pampered political left is a lot like trying to make my ex-wife happy.  It’s hopeless, a total lost cause.  Give it up, Wally.  Tell ’em to fvck off before you invest a lot of time and money and finally realize that you could have saved both.  But, keep the $4 prescriptions.  And, how’s about running another $399 Compaq special?

Who would let a kid…..? Beggers belief.
