Michael Snyder:  Should the federal government be spending billions of dollars to pump up Wal-Mart’s profits?  I know that question sounds really bizarre, but unfortunately this is essentially what is happening.  Because Wal-Mart does not pay them enough money, hundreds of thousands of Wal-Mart employees enroll in Medicaid, food stamps and other social welfare programs.  Even though Wal-Mart makes enormous profits, they refuse to properly take care of their employees so the federal government has to do it.  And of course this is not just a Wal-Mart problem.  There are hundreds of other major corporations doing exactly the same thing.  And they will keep on doing it as long as they can because relying on the federal government to take care of their employees allows them to make much larger profits.  This gives these companies an enormous competitive advantage and it distorts the marketplace.  If you love the free enterprise system, you should be aghast at this.  Our big corporations have become the biggest “welfare queens” of all, and Wal-Mart is near the top of that list.   Continue reading “The US Government Spends 2.6 Billion To Pump Up Wal-Marts Profits”

The dramatic drop comes as Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio plan to hold an emergency summit on Tuesday with the heads of the five police unions to try to close the widening rift between cops and the administration.   Continue reading “Arrests plummet 66% with NYPD in virtual work stoppage”

But what were the biggest health-related censored news stories of the year? That’s what this Natural News article is all about. Consider it a short list of things the establishment doesn’t want you to remember actually happened.   Continue reading “The most censored health news stories of 2014 – here’s what the establishment doesn’t want you to remember”
