Oh, really? How about just accepting the idea the Wal-Mart's customers are under financial pressure and this "recovery" is only being reflected in juiced financial markets?The largest U.S. consumer electronics chain, which posted its third straight quarter of same-store sales declines on Thursday, also forecast a fall in same-store sales in the current quarter.

Want to pay $2. a gallon, and use $1. of that towards American health care? National Oil would benefit all Americans and make corporations competitive in global trading.
