Food for thought

Walmart takes in around 43 million dollars per hour in sales.

If Walmart donated all 43 million per hour to pay for the 800 billion dollar stimulus package it would take a little over 2 years to pay for it, without interest.

That thought helped me put it in perspective. I'm not looking foward to getting taxed to pay for it.

Last time I went to Walmart, I took my son to buy the latest Sonic game. I think it came from Japan. Also picked up Milk, roast beef and ham for sandwiches, and a bag of carrots. I don't think any of it came from China.

over 50% of things sold by walmart are made in china. less than 5% in the usa.

walmart alone is 10% of our trade deficit with china.

Do you guys remember in the early 90's, Wal-Mart had their "Made in the USA" marketing campaign running. The message was "if you buy something in Wal-Mart, it was made in the USA." :lol: Talk about your change of heart.

:D You've got to wonder about a product whose orange residue is harder to get off your fingers that oil based paint.

Sam Walton is rolling in his grave. After he died his kids decided to drop the "bringin' it home to the USA" campaign.

I'm guilty of sending a large portion of my businesses' money to China and to everyone's surprise it's not a personal choice. My customers demand it, not by saying "I want Chinese products" but due to the fact that domestically-made plumbing supplies cost two to three times what a Chinese-made import does. The contractors and homeowners are just not willing to pay the domestic price and therefore, in an effort to keep cash flowing, I am forced to funnel import products into my inventory.

It's cheaper for a company in the US to manufacture a product in China and ship it halfway around the world to distribute within the US than it is for that company to get a local manufacturer to create the product. It's ridiculous.

    • This is why mock drafts are stupid (and why the serious analysts like Mayock only do them to appease viewers) because it's almost impossible to guess what each GM is going to do and to pick out all the trades. 

      How a rational human being should judge these analysts is were they right about the studs and the duds three years from now. This is why I am indifferent about Christian. I didn't waste my time watching hours of tape, but I trust that DG did. If he's Christian ends up being the player we want him to be, then that's success. If mayock and others saw him having success in the next level then that's success. If analysts don't think Trubisky will have success and he does, then that's failure on part of the analysts.
    • Kareem Hunt from Toledo runs in a similar manner to Cook and will be available in the 3rd and maybe 4th. If they value someone higher than Cook, it's possible they pass and take a back later.
