Captain Walmart to the rescue!

In a stunning announcement today, Janet Napolitano has announced a new partner to bolster our national security:

WALMART!!!!!
Shocked

Oh my God! You can't make this up! Here is the actual quote from the Deptartment of Homeland Security:

Quote:
launching a new partnership between DHS and Walmart to help the American public play an active role in ensuring the safety and security of our nation.

Let's get this straight: North Korea is threatening to attack South Korea at any moment, Iran has proclaimed its ability to process nuclear fuel without outside assistance, Wikileaks is spilling the beans on all of our hidden skeletons, and NAPOLITANO MAKES WALMART A SECURITY PARTNER! Rolling Eyes
News Flash: I think the Obama adminsitration needs to get their heads out of their @sses and take the job of running our country seriously.

So if Walmart is to make any money out of this, will the people of the United States get a percentage of this? I see plenty of opportunities for bribery and corruption. Also, how unfair is that to the other businesses? Or did other businesses get the opportunity to compete for this in a fair competition for tendering for a contract?

Agreed. This boggles the mind.

This makes you wonder if anyone in the Administration has ever read Orwell's 1984. They sure seem to be basing their playbook on it.

It's more pay-to-play. Wal-mart recently submitted a report saying that they cannot continue to provide health care insurance to their employees unless they get a health care bill exemption (like over 100 other companies have received). It shouldn't be too surprising that Wal-mart is doing the government a favor when the government is probably doing one for them.

The criteria you have to meet to get employer coverage from Walmart is absurd. Walmart could never provide health insurance to their lowest employees. What's new?

No, not to law enforcement but to the "greeter" by the door. "Hey, Bin Laden is looking at cell phones." laugh

To serious for a moment: What is Janet smokin'? May be Walmart is hoping that this will get the government off it's back in other things.
