Planet Washington Home Version For Snowbound!

There’s One-Stop Shopping — with a Smily Face.
Sam Walton started a variety store in 1945 with $5,000 savings and a $20,000 loan from his father in law. His children are now among the richest Americans listed each year by Forbes. Wal Mart stores stock everything, are everywhere, and are open 24/7. As the largest US private sector employer, a major buyer of everything, & major competitor, they are not without controversy. But one thing is for certain, all around Tom Friedman’s Flat World, American capitalism now has a little yellow smiley face on it.

United States of Wal-Mart

When I need a shovel or a brand new suit of clothes,
There is one-stop shopping in a place that everybody knows.
I shop at Wal-mart, to buy my teddys, tools, or tires.
At the snack bar with my baby that’s where I’ll be.
I go to Wal-Mart, for shoes and socks,
I go to Wal-mart, for watches and clocks,
I go to Wal-mart, for crackers and cheese,
I go to Wal-Mart, for my BVDs,
I go to Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart.

When the plant shut down, they moved production overseas,
I got a job in sales, I sell imported clothes and cheap TVs.
I work at Wal-Mart, where I sell cameras and DVDs,
If it ain’t made in China well that’s news to me.
I go to Wal-Mart, to buy a phone,
I go to Wal-Mart, for a sub-prime loan,
I go to Wal-Mart, for a new backpack,
I go to Wal-Mart, for my Prozac,
I go to Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart.

When I fell behind they took my credit cards and house away,
I searched in vain for a decent place for me my dog and wife to stay.
Now I live at Wal-Mart, between the housewares and sporting goods,
Cookin’ breakfast on the Coleman, is where I’ll be.
I live at Wal-Mart, seven twenty-four,
I live at Wal-Mart, park right by the door,
I live at Wal-Mart, got a photo place,
I live at Wal-Mart, I wear a smiley face,
I live at Wal-Mart, Wal-mart!

WalMart Opens in DC? Shop There. Work There. What Next?

BREAKING NEWS: (Washington, DC) — With much fanfare it was announced that Wal Mart will donate $3 Million to train DC residents to fill 2,000 JOBS in its yet-to-be-built stores in the District of Columbia.  Mom & Pop  local merchants are not that impressed  BUT this will make Wal Mart, already the nation’s largest private employer, the largest employer in DC (non-government, non-lobbyist, non-bartender employer in DC) !!!

So don a smily face and grab a cart!!!

Welcome WalMart !  We shop there!  We work there!  What next?
