It’s A Dirty Job…

And Mike Rowe got to do it. Again.

Tell us: If somebody, some huge corporation, say, were to promise to purchase $250,000,000,000, that’s $250 BILLION, worth of goods manufactured in America, would you call that a remarkable investment in our moribund ObamaConomy, a substantial shot in the arm to an economy that Ear Leader and his Socialist Progressive Party have done everything to destroy?

Most would. Heck, even your average Progressive Socialist ‘tard would say as much, provided that the $250 billion went into Ear Leader’s friends’ pockets, ahem, “green energy investments.”

Mike Rowe certainly couldn’t see anything wrong in putting Americans to work manufacturing a quarter trillion dollars (that’s almost as much money as goes into Moochelle Obama’s makeup and vacation budget) worth of goods, so he agreed to say so in an ad.

“Problem” here?

The corporation is Wal*Mart (cue shrieking Progressive Socialists clutching their pearls), and Wal*Mart is EVUL! Because… Because WAL*MART and The Party told us so in their memo!

Mike responded as only he can, with style, dignity and a wholesome helping of snark.

Yeah, working America, those of us left after 5 years of your messiah’s attempts at eradicating you, that’s Ear Leader and his Progressive Socialist Party for you. “Caring” for you all the way. If they bloody well have to KILL you to show how much they care.

But don’t let that stop you from marching out like obedient little lemmings to vote for Teh Party the next time. And the next, and the next… You miserable, worthless, imbecilic, retarded cunts.

Thatisall.

    Hell, the left don’t want us bible-and-gun-clinging people to work.

    Unless it is to spy on our neighbors…

    Hell, I work at Wal*Mart and I can’t say that they are so bad in their treatment of associates. The managers at my store are mostly friendly and somewhat helpful to the regular associates. They have handed me a lot of hats to wear, but I don’t see that as much different than most companies. They all hand you work that really isn’t in your actual job description. You do most of it when asked if you want to continue working.

    I’m personally not too big a fan of Walmart but things like this should be encouraged no matter who the company is. And Mr. Rowe is being far too kind to his complainers.

    For anyone who has noticed, Mike has to be one of the hardest working guys in television. Besides his own show he has narrated about a gazillion other shows, among them is “The Deadliest Catch”. By all appearances his involvement in that show is way beyond merely narrating the episodes. By any measure Mike is the hardest working guy on TV and a fine rep for others to see the value of actually working for their living. Kudos to Mike………bravo Sir !!!!

    Just where do the liberals want the lower- and middle-classes to shop? This economy has all but destroyed mom-and-pop stores. Super Target (in this area anyway) is more expensive. Baker’s (same as Kroger and Dillon) is more expensive than Target. Not a lot of people can afford to drive the 15 miles from Bellevue into Omaha to shop at “Whole Paycheck.”

    Wal*Mart has made products affordable for the average person. And, as a bonus, ours offers a limited amount of organic, for those who want organic. My daughter shops there, regularly. She even price matches produce with Aldi.Yes, there are inconveniences, like TONS OF PEOPLE, so I pay the extra and shop at Baker’s (but that’s cause I hate crowds).

    I always laugh at folks who hate WalMart. These are often the same people who will complement the shirt, sweater, or dress I’m wearing. The one I bought at WalMart, and which is their house label.

    As Mike says, basic retail (I’m not talking management stuff) isn’t supposed to be a lifetime job. It’s supposed to be entry level to get you some experience in the work force so you can go on to something bigger and better. At least where I live, for retail to be a real living wage, it would have to pay something closer to $15/h, but as Mike also says, these are the jobs which are becoming obsolete. And even if they weren’t Øcare is making sure that they will never be full time jobs again anyway.

    Our local WalMart is supposed to be expanding to a SuperWalMart in the near future. I’m rather looking forward to that as the one a few towns over often has better prices on food than the commissary, and certainly a much wider selection.

    I know a number of people who say they are Walmart haters, dutifully toeing the party line. I look forward to the day that I encounter one of them shopping there, as I have no doubt many of them do.

    I have often considered this irrational response to the Walmart phenomenon a clear indicator of ignorance of the workings of free enterprise and the consequences of government interference in the economy. It reminds me of that old Yogi Berra saying: “No one goes to that restaurant any more because it’s too crowded.”

    It’s all a matter of perspective:

    My sister and her husband were both employed by the largest construction firm in California and were making money hand-over-fist. Both were kool-aid drinking unionistas who wouldn’t be caught dead within a mile of a Wal-Mart because they “mistreated their workers” (read: weren’t unionized).

    Then they both got laid off within three weeks of each other.

    Three guesses as to where they do the bulk of their shopping now (and the first two don’t count).

    Yeah, the unionized grocery stores in CA are doing *so* well right now…

    Why … places that provide a “living wage”, of course. Yes … as you hand your EBT card to the cashier and they ring up your $12/gal milk and $10 dozen of eggs, after waiting in line for 45 minutes because the store can only afford to hire one cashier instead of 3, you can take great pride in the fact that the cashier is making $20/hour.

    I swear … this country is going full retard.

    My point about Walmart is this.

    They wouldn’t have to spend $250Billion if they had not left the founding principles of Sam Walton. In chasing a dollar they made deals with communist China, something Sam would have never done. There is capitalism, and there is soulless capitalism.

    Capitalism is like the American Republic, it works best when the leaders are Christian.

    AMEN to that.

    Seriously, folks, we haven’t yet figured out how to deal with this new thing, the global competition for jobs. We might actually have to put up some tariffs. Even if you’re the smartest workforce on the planet, how can you compete financially with people who can live on ONE DOLLAR A DAY?

    I mean, really.
