“The question here is a living wage; it’s not whether Wal-Mart comes or stays,” said council member Vincent B. Orange (D-At Large), a lead backer of the legislation, who added that the city did not need to kowtow to threats. “We’re at a point where we don’t need retailers. Retailers need us.”
Spoken like a true criminal thug. Gangsters will go through a neighborhood forcing business to “pay for protection”, if you don’t pay then they will destroy your store or business. And maybe kill you for the trouble you put them through simply because you refused to give them your hard earned money.
Last year Wal-Mart reported $17 billion net profit on $470 billion in sales, that’s just under 4% profit. Government criminal thugs somehow think they are entitled to that. So they will fiddle with the laws until they come up with a way to get their greedy hands on it. And what will they do with it? Buy votes. It’s free money why not.
Wal-Mart gets protested a lot, a very large part of these protests are led, directly or indirectly, by unions which is just another thug arm of government. Wither criminal politician or criminal thug union member, it is all about getting their greedy hands on someone’s money. Money they did not earn or have a right to.
I am not a big fan of Wal-Mart and you may not be either, but we still need to pay attention because what government is doing to them today they will be doing to someone else tomorrow. Listen to Councilman Orange, “we’re at a point where we don’t need retailers, retailers need us”. Just who is “we” and “us” in Mr. Oranges statement? If you think it is We the People, you are wrong. Do you think Mr. Orange will retire to Social Security? Be on Medicare or Obamacare? Do you think he is depending on his 401k for retirement? The answer to all those questions is no. Government employees have set themselves up over We the People, they are not one of us. The “we” and “us” is government thugs. “Retailers” is a disposable word in this sentence, you can substitute it for any number of entities.
