Yesterday, a news story came out -- the U.S. Census Bureau has found nearly half of Americans to be "poor"... This is shameful, as the United States deteriorates into becoming a third-world country.
Yesterday there was also a report listing the Forbes magazine wealthiest Americans. Six members of the Walton family, the family that originally owned Walmart (descendents of Sam Walton, the founder), have a combined net worth equaling the total net worth of the least affluent 30% of the whole country. A company that produces huge profits by stomping on its employees, its vendors, its country, and its communities deserves destruction, not this kind of obscene wealth.
Last night on the Evening News, Brian Williams gave the story about half of Americans being poor, but there was no mention of the Walton/30% thing. Toward the end of the newscast, there was a Walmart commercial. Big surprise.
