    DB and Matthew, Most of the time I don’t read usa8888 posts. But once in awhile my eye catches an extremely stupid statement and I have to proof usa wrong.

    Was there a new federal gas tax that started Jan 1st? Gas went up 10 cent on the 1st. Maybe it’s a state tax. Anyone know, I’m to lazy to look it up.

  • 1966

    @cathy
    gas here dropped to 2.90 a gallon.

  • usa8888

    Cathy–Kroger is deathly afraid of Costco and will be surpassed in sales by Costco shortly. Costco has great buys and qualtiy and if you are buying in a little quantity and want excellent quality, you go Costco, not Kroger. Walmart pays their people terribly and their prices/quality are no where near Costco. Costco is a real powerhouse and is growing rapidly. And, Cathy, if you are a true value shopper, you do NOT shop at Kroger over Costco, unless you can’t count…..

    @usa
    I have been a member of costco for 3 years now they are a good value.

    @coffee steve
    congrats. on louisviile winning the sugar bowl!!!!

    @Mark, Your statement about Walmart shows that you don’t know how the company started. Like Microsoft most employee that started with the company when Mr. Walton was running it are now millionaires. The people who helped build this company have been rewarded.

    Walmart has great stock options for their employees. If you use Walmart as a part-time job, like one of my aunt’s did and use your paycheck to buy the stock you can make a lot of money.

    I keep hearing how bad Walmart is to their employees from people on the internet. But guess what, I have never had a Walmart employee belittle the company like you and other internet posters do.

    My niece has worked for Wal-mart for six years. She started at the customer service desk and become a department manager in one year. She left her job at Kmart to make the move. She had been at Kmart for seven years and never moved up. Her Wal-mart pays 10% more than other retailers in the area. She believes Walmart is the best retailer to work for. My niece only has a GED and she has been told that Walmart would pay most of her tuition if she wanted to go to college. They want to move her up but she needs a two year degree to get the next job. But my niece is happy with her job and doesn’t like school.

    So, who do you know that worked at Walmart? Or is your information from word of mouth.

    Most retail jobs are part time work, so it wouldn’t surprise me if people working for Walmart are on food stamps.
    You said you didn’t shop at Walmart because of the low pay. Do you know how much the people get paid at all the retail stores that you shop in? If you don’t shop at Walmart because of what you believe their practices don’t you think you should be the same to every store you use?

  • cathy

    @1966,, thanks for the info. It gives me hope.

  • cathy

    I can’t stop laughing. usa LOL you are a funny people. Stop all the penny pinching blogs, forget about checking sells ad. Just go to Costco.

  • RedBarSoup

    Don’t know what world you live in but I have 2 cousins that work at Walmart and they make DARN sure that they get under 30 hours so they don’t have to give them any benefits. They even make them just 30 minutes shy of the threshold, pretty sad.

  • Hillbilly

    Maybe they will subscribe to Nielsen. I see d.d. beat me to it. Her and Ratboy are out to get me. :mad:

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Al-Jazeera, the Pan-Arab news channel that struggled to win space on American cable television, has acquired Current TV, boosting its reach in the U.S. nearly ninefold to about 40 million homes. With a focus on U.S. news, it plans to rebrand the left-leaning news network that cofounder Al Gore couldn’t make relevant.

    Akbar crushed Maddow, he’s on fire. ;)

  • Hillbilly

    Words are plentiful. Now let’s see some action.

    The President likes to say that most Americans support tax hikes on the rich. What he conveniently leaves out is that even more Americans support cuts. That’s the debate the American people really want. It’s a debate Republicans are ready to have. And it’s the debate that starts today, whether the President wants it or not.

  • Hillbilly

    Then college educated wacky liberals just don’t get it. :lol: Maddow and her minions need to come up with a new talking point.

    This week’s budget compromise “doesn’t affect our view of the country’s credit outlook, given that we believe yesterday’s agreement does little to place the U.S.’s medium-term public finances on a more sustainable footing,” S&P said in a statement on Wednesday.

    Cut spending or be down graded. The choice is yours.

  • Hillbilly

    Matthew – As for the rest, it really depends on a number of things. Obviously, that will increase their expenses, but will they still be making a profit? If so, then if they decide to raise prices (in pursuit of larger profit margins), yet McDonalds maintains the same prices, won’t they just price themselves out of the market? Could they cut costs elsewhere to offset the new costs?

    —————————–

    It would depend on each business i reckon. I don’t know what McDonald’s pays an employee vs what Burger King pays. If I’m making a 3 cent profit per burger why would i want to reduce that? Large companies might be able to absorb the cost, smaller companies not so much.

    First of all, I’m not sure I’d set the benchmark quite that high, since that would be increasing the federal minimum wage by 100%.

    If you want federal minimum wage to be the “decent living wage” its gotta increase to something close to $15. I’m basing that on a family of 3 with one wage earner. That also depends on where they live & the subjective definition of a decent living mean.

    We can’t assume by default that better pay for workers must necessarily be passed on to the consumer; of course, that’s what they’d want to do IF they can get away with it, but if it hurts demand, then it’s clearly going to be to their detriment in the long term.

    It’s also a detriment to the employer to eat the cost. Less money to expand or higher more workers. You think Robert & Bill are gonna take less per page view to give Sara & Amanda a raise? Probably a bad example. Robert & Bill already own half the internet. ;)

  • Hillbilly

    If we’re using the fed minimum wage then i don’t see how the cost can’t be passed on to the consumer by all companies.

    The new hourly rates will range between $7.35 in Missouri and $9.19 in Washington state, which has the highest minimum wage in the nation.

    Source.

    Federal minimum wage is $7.25 according to the source above. You say $15 is to high. Lets go with **$13. That’s a $5.75 hourly increase. What company is gonna eat that? Washington state would be a $3.81 hourly increase. That’s just the wage, not including the extra SS tax.

    **NELP considers $13.83 a low wage job.

    Wanna-be Dictator Obama Uses Executive Order to Grant Backdoor Amnesty to 1 Million Illegal Immigrants

    Just another executive order that ignores US laws and usurps Congress. The dictatorship is slowly taking root.

    By Brian Bennett

    January 2, 2013, 9:28 a.m.
    WASHINGTON — The Obama administration eased the way Wednesday for illegal immigrants who are immediate relatives of American citizens to apply for permanent residency, a change that could affect as many as 1 million of the estimated 11 million immigrants unlawfully in the U.S.

    A new rule issued by the Department of Homeland Security aims to reduce the time illegal immigrants are separated from their American families while seeking legal status, immigration officials said.

    Beginning March 4, when the changes go into effect, illegal immigrants who can demonstrate that time apart from an American spouse, child or parent would create “extreme hardship,” can start the application process for a legal visa without leaving the U.S.

    Once approved, applicants would be required to leave the U.S. briefly in order to return to their native country and pick up their visa.
