Maybe if they'd be able to keep ammo in stock, they'd see more of my business. :idk:
People's cash is being sapped right now due to the mark up in GAS.
Gas is reaching almost $4 and some places around the country are past that mark. Prices have somewhat retreated in the last few days on the market but that wont filter down to the pumps anytime soon. It might slightly halt the rise, for now though.
For those that think (non talk radio listeners), it was pretty easy to see the issue...:lol:Quote:
"February sales got a slow start, “due in large part to the delay in income tax refunds,” said Wal-Mart U.S. Chief Executive Bill Simon in a statement. As a result, the division expects same store sales for the quarter ending on April 26 “to be around flat.”"
And even when income taxes do come in they still expect sales “to be around flat” for the first quarter ending in April 26. Pretty crazy considering all the money Wal-Mart makes from ebt and income taxes. Let's not forget the economy shrunk the last quarter and unemployment still continues to be high. Factor in high gas prices and inflation and it's quite possible we might see 2 quarters of negative gdp. All is not hunky dory with this economy. FAR from it.
CEO's are just the face the company wants to show you. He's responsible for damage control so shareholders dont get nervous. Its like believing everything the POTUS tells you.....you'd be naive to think there isnt more to the story
FACT: You can easily get advances on tax returns. FYI most Wal-Marts have specific areas in their stores to do this very thing!
I'm amazed at the things some ppl are willing to eat just so their guy won't look bad. How long does Obama have to be President before it's his fault/economy?
