    WASHINGTON -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton won't touch Wal-Mart's money -- but Jerry Springer's checks are money in the bank.

    Clinton, who served as a paid member of Arkansas-based Wal-Mart's board in the 1980s, last week blasted the company for failing to provide health benefits to workers. But Clinton's most recent federal campaign filings -- 3,000 pages worth -- show that she began distancing herself from the company months earlier, returning $5,000 in political action committee cash from the world's largest retailer Nov. 4.


    Hill is kissing some serious labor union butt here. The renowned socialist believes that the govt should decide and force private corporations how to spend their money.

    Forgotten in all this is the fact that hypocrite Hillary was once on the board of directors for Wallmart. Of course, she did absolutely NOTHING about supposed health care inadequacies while collecting the checks. Fortunately, Democrats, the liberal press and union members are too stupid to notice and infinitely forfiving of socialist leftist transgressions.










    The senator returned the money because of "serious differences with current company practices," Clinton campaign guru Ann Lewis said on Friday.

    Hillary Clinton is the bottom of the barrell, she is the biggest phony in politics today, I wouldn't trust her to empty my garbage.

    I hope they keep her on the front page from now until 2008, she is best thing that has ever happend for the Republicans.

    Whoever the Republican candidate turns out to be in 2008 if Hillary is his opponent the republican will win in the biggest landslide this country has ever seen.

    Hillary is the most untrustworthy person on this Planet, a power hungry animal.

    Actually, Pissah, the question is: Why are you butt-kissing Walmart? Do you own stock in it? Or do you simply favor a corporate oligarchy, and think that politicians should not stand up to corporations for the sake of the little guy? Greate values there, Pissah. You should be proud. Also, calling Hillary a socialist is preaching to the already converted. Most other people would look upon such a description as superficial politics. I suppose for you, a politician who is not in the pocket of big corporations, like the Republican Party is, is suspect. Do you have an Abramoff bumpersticker on your car?

    Maybe he simply enjoys exporting jobs to China for the cheap junk you buy at walmart?

    For sake of the little guy? What do you think poor people can afford Nordstrom? C'mon wal-mart keeps it prices low by keeping out organized labor who would push prices through the roof, and than screwing the little guy.

    Next time you are in walmart look at the labels and tell us what percentage is made in China. You will then know how they keep prices low. They are another sell out.

    Companies like Ikea and Costco also keep prices low.

    WalMart keeps its prices low in order to drive out competition and earn a regional "monopoly". Once they do that, the prices come up. WalMart is willing to have one of its stores operate at a loss for 20 years if necessary, knowing that the other stores will more than make up for it.

    WalMart keeps its prices low by bulk purchasing. Pure and Simple. WalMart dictates the price they are willing to pay manufacturers. Most foreign manufacturers are more than willing to comply. They get an effective sales agent, and don't have those pesky minimum wage or child labor laws.

    WalMart keeps its prices low by scrimping on health benefits of its employees.

    The question is, why aren't you taking up the cause? Why do you support a billion dollar corporation's screwing its employees?

    I am not associated with Walmart in any way and have never even been in one, nor have I been into effete shops like Starbucks or in PC ice cream stores like Ben & Jerries. My post was illustrating the hypocracy of well compensated former Walmart Board of Directors member Hillary Rodham and her ongoing socialist blueprint for America.

    Nice attempt at irrelevant ad-hominem misdirection when faced with facts.

    Don't blame Wal-Mart, blame the people, they flock to the Wal-Marts all across the country.

    Try telling your neighbor that is one jump ahead of "forclosure on his home" not to shop Wal-Mart.

    Wal-Mart is for the poor kids

    First of all, with anyone in politics you can find thypocrisy, because politicians socialize and engage with all sorts of people. The fact is, they might like some of the people they disagree with and they might want to be a position to effect change. Do you have any evidence that Hillary didn't try to change Walmart's policies while she was on the board? Then, post it. I WANT FACTS. DO YOU HAVE ANY? While, you're at it, try looking up what socialism is. You obviously are ignorant of it or just resorting the childish Republican practice of name calling, even when the name doesn't apply.

    I don't try to stop my neighbor from shopping at Walmart. In many communities, especially in the SouthEast, shopping at Walmart is options A-H.

    That doesn't mean they don't follow unethical business practices.

    If my neighbor, however, is a small business owner, though, he won't be around much longer.

    I'm not just picking on WalMart. I'm not a big fan of Home Depot either. I'm not a fan of any business that seeks to drive other independent businesses out of buisness.

    I hope you have never worn a pair of Nikes.

    It is funny when in Wal-Marts I always see the employees smiling, must be that I don't have my AFL-CIO glasses on to see their pain. I find it funny that wal-mart employees so many people and offer health insurance to full timers, but that is not good enough, now they need to be unionized? Pandering to the party will never stop with some of you people.

    Your right, the neighbor thing was just a figure of speech. Mom & Pop will soon be a thing of the past, then after we are all gone it won't even be remembered. Nothing is forever.

    I think that our country must do more to rescusitate small business and family farms. The solution is not cutting taxes so much as making sure that large businesses pay for the privilege of being large (which uses much more of our national infrastructure than a small business). I think that if small businesses flourished, prices wouldn't be that much higher, and at any rate there's a lot of stuff that people buy that they don't need. I think the Dems would be smart to emphasize small business to some degree at the expense of big business, but let's face it all the politicians are in the pocket of the big corporations.

    Hillary sucks, Wal-Mart is much worse. I don't believe in any kind of legal "solution", but I just refuse to support them.

    Ludicrous, as usual.
    She was on Walmart's board, well compensated for years. She said nothing. That is the record and that is the fact. You show ME where she railed against the machine when she was on the board. You just can't handle it when a liberal icon, one you might have to support in 2008 gets criticized.

    First of all, Pissah, Hillary is no liberal icon. Her only liberal initiative to the best of my knowledge was advocacy of a national health care plan for the uninsured. Otherwise, her views are Democratic mainstream, while her stands on the Iraq war, budget deficits, flag burning, and taxes are moderate at best. I have no idea what she did while on the Walmart board, but I would guess she presented her views, and health care is one of her main issues. Do you have any evidence she said nothing in the meetings she attended? The best you can say, I think, is that you are unaware if she said anything. At any rate, for a politician to turn down a contribution and to leave the board a major corporation shows a certain amount of courage.

    But, again, Hillary is no liberal, nor was her husband. Man, they're from Arkanasa and they are key players in the DLC, which is strictly moderate. What makes you think that she's a liberal or a socialist? I read recently, but I can't find where, she

    She's doing a fine job posing as a centrist.

    Why do you want to penalize a company for being successful? Isn't that the goal of all businesses?

    A business has but one mission - to provide jobs. That's it.
