    Re: Wal-Mart: Our shoppers are 'running out of money'

    Does anyone else find it funny that people are complaining so much about rising gas prices? How can you expect the price of a FINITE resource to remain the same forever? The answer? You can't. I thought conservatives were free market types, understanding of supply and demand. When supply goes down and demand remains the same the price will go up. We might be able to fenagle our way through a few more years with prices remaining artificially low because of deals cut by the government, or by taking over oil rich countries, but it's not gonna last forever.

    Where there's a demand there's a supplier/entrepreneur.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Psst, it's not about gas prices. It's about the "FACT" that everything Obama does is evil. Because he wasn't born here (even though he was, and it's been proven).

    Really? You didn't vote for him so quit telling me why I elected him. Go hang out with McCain and Palin and talk about who is more maverick, rogue, and outsiderish.

    Re: Wal-Mart: Our shoppers are 'running out of money'

    Walmart has two reasons to pay attention.

    One years ago Walmart started doing massive amounts of business with China to give us cheap goods to buy, and in the process over the years put a great number of businesses out of business.

    Now we have fewer good paying jobs for for people to earn a living and buy things from Walmart because they are on public assistance or just have a lower paying job.

    So it's been a tow edge sword.

    In order to make things affordable they killed their own business,and didn't even know it.

    I saw it coming years ago but like so many times no one was listening.
