Historical Factoids; …

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., branded as Walmart, is an American multinational retail corporation that operates chains of large discount department stores and warehouse stores.

Walmart was founded by Samuel Walton in 1962, and the company is the world’s largest public corporation and the largest private employer in the world, with over two million employees, and the largest retailer in the world.

Walmart remains a family-owned business, as the company is controlled by the Walton family, who own over 50 percent of the stock.

Currently Walmart has over 11,000 stores in 27 countries, under 55 different names. The company operates under the Walmart name in the United States, including the 50 states and Puerto Rico.

What the hell is wrong with shopping in Aladdin, and/or, at Mc Donough’s General Store.

The Aladdin store is owned by a hell of a nice lady named Judy and her staff is equally as agreeable, as I’m sure the folks at Mc Donough’s are as well.

Not everyone lives in Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York City, – lots of us live in rural America and support our local businesses. Not that we don’t journey to Walmart once or twice a month. I’m a patriot, but I’m not stupid nor does my Social Security spanned the thirty days between deposits if we don’t pay attention prices.

With the tycoon mentality in America and around the world today there isn’t much room for a working man to get ahead and even less wiggle room for those of us in our…

When I was five years old a bottle of Coca-Cola was five cents…

Lucy - five cents 1a

..and Lucy was in her Glory!

Today a bottle of Coca-Cola is a dollar and a quarter or more and not many of us “ordinary people ” are happy with that.

Not so much because a bottle of Coca-Cola is a dollar and a quarter, but rather because Coca-Cola won’t start the engine in our cars.

Question: How many of you remember when gasoline was a dollar and a quarter a gallon?

A better Question: How many remember when gasoline was $.17 a gallon or $.23 a gallon or $.55 a gallon?
