Daily breaking news and news the liberal media doesn't want you to know, won't report, or just daily news issues.

Americans for many years have had to rely on left leaning biased news reporting from liberal media such as NBC, ABC, and CBS and the New York Times. As most of these outlets struggle to remain on the air and in print, the new media is flourishing and people are hearing both sides of the issues. This forum will provide people with a place to discuss daily news issues of any kind or discuss articles not printed or aired by the liberal news outlets.

chose to switch to government supplied health options. there are many reasons for that decision which i neither have the time nor the inclination to discuss. also, corporations are really no different that groups of people that form political action committees. if you desire to blame anyone for their lack of voice, start and end with the politician. it is their ear and their decision which you need.

scrappile: fact...walmart does not receive food stamps as a benefit. they do however redeem them. in addition, with 2.1 million employees they have a relatively low rate of employees that receive public assitance in some form. i have read on an independent site that it was between 8-10%. considering that number, it could be argued that they are actually lower than our own government numbers for total public assistance without any real productivity. while i am not always a fan of some of their business practices, it should be noted that there are very few with advanced degrees that stock the aisles or buff the floors that would or should qualify for the wages that some seem that walmart (customers) should have to provide. in addition, walmart spends about $3500.00 per employeee for basic health coverage. the national average is about $4200.00 per employee. buying in bulk for the large number of employees would warrant a lower cost. it appeared after some research that many employees ch

Fact: wal~mart is the largest food stamp recipient......of course it is always easier to blame those without a voice, because supreme court injustices said money=free speech.....scotus also said corporation=personhood.....

the exception. if the guilt ever really weighs on aperson, they can always slip the unfortunate Walmart employee a few bucks to compensate them for the injustice one may perceive.

thegreek, i looked into walmart salaries. you will find that they are all above minimum wage and offer some benefits to even the part-time folks. it was noted that 75% of their employees work full-time. they also employ those that society sometimes deems "unemployable" and without skill. the notion that companies are somehow created to become a "nanny corporation" is insane. i do not understand when it became sacrilegious for a person to work more than one job to cover their "chosen and imposed" living expenses. as much as anyone is "pushed" into government programs or tax deductions based on earnings, the same energy could have been put into aquiring another job. no, most choose to take the easier way out. but then again it is legal. maybe we should complain less about the employer and focus more on the employee and their lack of motivation, education or ingenuity. the severely handicapped, mentally challenged and the infirmed elderly would be

I know it is legal Moderation. I was simply trying to answer Berights previously asked question. I saw this on the direct tv special about WalMart. The rising cost of walmart I think was the name of it. It is legal but appears to place some of the burden of WalMarts success on the public for which they are in business for. If they paid their employees a decent wage (can be said for a lot of corporations) and employed them full time instead of part time, they would be less dependent on the system.

Good point, greek.Keep in mind, that it is all legal.

BeRight. WalMart employees pay is below the level so they can all qualify for the Family Earned Income Credit on their taxes which I think is about $3300 per dependent. I think !! Not sure that is what they are talking about but the rest of us taxpayers are subsidizing their low pay with our income taxes. While their CEO's and VP's all make a slight amount above the average low wage (sarcasm intended). Plus bonuses of course.
