Democrats Want to Destroy the American Retail Industry

Author: Rory B. Bellows

There is going to be a new “Big” industry that anti-capitalist Democrats seek to demonize and destroy. We had Big Pharmaceutical, Big Tobacco, Big Oil and soon we will see Big Retail. Wal-Mart has been a model of American business ingenuity and capitalism, yet they are going to face the wrath of the radical socialist left. Wal-Mart is heroically opposing collectivist Democrat-sponsored legislation to eliminate secret balloting for unionization of workers.

Democrats support this bill because unions provide them oodles of campaign cash and foot soldiers for elections. The socialists also support this bill because it is anti-free enterprise. If there is one thing collectivists cannot stand, it is a successful American business. If something is too successful, Democrats wish to burden it. They can burden it with confiscatory tax rates, and in the case of Wal-Mart, unionization.

Unions are parasitic organizations. They infect and destoy from the inside by “bargaining” for outrageous raises, pay scales, hiring and firing practices and healthcare and retirement packages that ruin the host business. If you don’t believe me, check out what has happened to the Auto Industry in Michigan. Unions are second only to FDR in terms of inflicting incurable damage on our country and putting us on the path to second rate status while countries like China and India zoom past us as they concentrate on progress and growing the pie as opposed to redistributing it.

    Talk about Kool-Aid drinkers!

    DO you enjoy a five day workweek? An 8 hour day? Vacation days? Paid holidays? Pensions? Safe working conditions? If you do, thank a union.

    Don’t blame unions for jobs scurrying pout the door to China and India.That the corporations who figured out that they could get coolie labor, for pennies on the dollar. China doesn’t care how corporations treat their workers, so off they go!

    Wal-Mart’s innovative as hell. They hire tons of workers, but most are “part-time” workers. They work as many hours as they possibly can without going over the threshold of becoming “full-time” workers, because if they were full-time, WalMart would have to provide them with benefits. If they’re only part-time,no benefits. Very innovative, and why on earth would any WalMart employee object to that, right?

    Unions are not all grand and glorious, by any means; anything built by men is imperfect. But they’re not the “parasites” you make them out to be, either. The world isn’t black and white; it’svarying shades of gray.
