Capitalism and Wal-Mart

by Jason Pye

One of the first episodes in the new season of Bullsh*t! was on the left’s hatred of Wal-Mart and capitalism in general. You can watch it below, but as always there are some things in the episode that could be considered offensive.

The screen shot is enough to piss the left off.

  1. I am sure the buyers at WalMart make more that $10.I5 an hour. So what is your point in the screen shot? I t sort of says that you will make twice as much there than working for the FEDS. That is is the picture is worth a thousand words.

  2. It wasn’t Jason’s point, that’s the opening of the show he linked. What is says is that you are making twice as much as minimum wage if you work for WalMart. It’s not saying you make twice as much as if you work for the Feds. In fact, Federal employees are significantly over compensated compared to their private sector counterparts. And have ridiculously rich benefits packages. Want to know one reason why the government can’t keep its spending under control? Look at how they compensate employees. End of government employee compensation rant.

  3. Oh god. Please run this on CNN, FOXNews, and in every city and town in america. I’m so tired of all of the left-wind, anti-Wal-Mart, liberal garbage.

    Awesome.

  5. His comment was that it would upset a leftist. But, the shot itself, what statement does it make about how “horrible” WalMart is?

  6. This is a great video and I too think that it should be shown in every home in America. I also liked that they profiled an ordinary Wal-Mart employee that said that she would eb on Welfare if it wasn’t for Wal-Mart.

    I also liked that they highlighted the 2 lawsuits that Wal-Mart was involved in and how much money they had to pay out. It seemed like a “fair and balanced” video to me with a capitalist slant.

    The left loves to go after Wal-Mart because it’s a prime example of capitalism and its success. Sure Wal-Mart doesn’t give health care to every employee. Last time I checked there were no laws requiring them to. Sure Wal-Mart isn’t unionized. That’s how they keep those low prices. Sure Wal-Mart busy things from overseas. There’s nothing wrong with that.

    Wal-Mart has a place in the market. Now a lot of their associates aren’t the most knowledgeable. If you are looking for an item that you may not know a lot about you are better off going to the mom and pop store and pay a little more to ensure that you get the right thing. If you want to pick up some ammo and know the difference between a HP and a FMJ, Wal-Mart is the place to go to get some cheap ammo.
