Here she is, our favorite SS wanna-be, Big Sis, brainwashing the moos into doing the government’s bidding while hurting the poorest among us and building China’s fiscal reserves.
Janet Napolitano and the Wal-Mart ‘Public Service’ Announcement
It’s that time folks; the time when we, as Americans, finally tell Wal-Mart to go **** themselves, to take DHS with them, and to stop building other countries’ economies by speaking to their bottom line. Television screens blasting DHS’s Orwellian propaganda at the checkouts has GOT TO BE the final straw added to the rest of Wal-mart’s sins.
America, unfortunately, is still defined by its consumerism . . . and the average American is still defined by their lack of discernment in what they purchase. Nothing represents the American consumer so well as the mega-corporation Wal-Mart. It is here, then, that the average American can display their power. If you don’t care about slave labor in far-off lands working ’till they drop so that you can buy clothes and electronics at pennies on the real value; if you don’t care about Wal-Mart’s discrimination against women; if you don’t care about slave wages and healthcare waivers, then at least care about the foundation of freedom itself.
I know many people have read ‘Janet Napolitano Enlists Wal-Mart To Watch You‘ with the entire DHS press release asking us to ‘report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.” It is Brazil, 1984, and 1939 Nazi Germany all rolled into one blase package for unsuspecting moos. The establishment has had ten years to condition the public into believing that an attack on American soil is a daily threat so that the moos will just go along with anything including tattle-tail propaganda messages in the biggest retailer in the country.
After the porno-scanners and sexual assaults by TSA, this new invasion into our lives is completely unwarranted and yet, we still have a choice to BOYCOTT Wal-Mart; letting them know that if they play ball with DHS, we won’t spend what little money we have left in their box stores. I know that during this economic depression, (DO NOT let them brainwash you into believing otherwise), Wal-Mart’s low prices achieved through slave labor are very appealing. In the small town in which I live, Wal-Mart is one of only three stores where one can purchase basic items, and they have the lowest prices by a longshot. I always felt like I needed to take a shower after every outing to the big box store, but now after their false advertising during Black Friday weekend, their senior citizen ‘gestapo’ at the door checking every bag like we are all criminals, and Americans as a whole making China filthy rich, I finally had to say “we’ll suffer through” and go without basic necessities until I can afford to purchase them elsewhere.
It’s time to start the boycottsof any and all retailers that are not acting in the best interest of this country, starting with Wal-Mart and the big banks. If you still have bank accounts or credit cards with the big boys, why not make the change now to a local community bank or credit union?
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty. – Ben Franklin
When the Secretary of DHS furthers the development of the tattle-tail program, (with our money, of course), in order to “report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.””, one knows that the continued existence of ‘the state‘ is of the utmost importance and you frakkin’ moos can just go somewhere and die (preferably quickly and cheaply).
Welcome to 1939 Nazi Germany 2.0, with the added twist of America always going the extra mile with style on any project (though Janet has none personally).

BIG SIS INVADES WAL-MART: ‘IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING’
WASHINGTON — Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano today announced the expansion of the Department’s national “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign to hundreds of Walmart stores across the country—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.
“Homeland security starts with hometown security, and each of us plays a critical role in keeping our country and communities safe,” said Secretary Napolitano. “I applaud Walmart for joining the ‘If You See Something, Say Something’ campaign. This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities.”
The “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign—originally implemented by New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority and funded, in part, by $13 million from DHS’ Transit Security Grant Program—is a simple and effective program to engage the public and key frontline employees to identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to the proper transportation and law enforcement authorities.
More than 230 Walmart stores nationwide launched the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign today, with a total of 588 Walmart stores in 27 states joining in the coming weeks. A short video message, available here, will play at select checkout locations to remind shoppers to contact local law enforcement to report suspicious activity.
Over the past five months, DHS has worked with its federal, state, local and private sector partners, as well as the Department of Justice, to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign and Nationwide SAR Initiative to communities throughout the country—including the recent state-wide expansions of the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign across Minnesota and New Jersey. Partners include the Mall of America, the American Hotel & Lodging Association, Amtrak, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, sports and general aviation industries, and state and local fusion centers across the country.
In the coming months, the Department will continue to expand the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign nationally with public education materials and outreach tools designed to help America’s businesses, communities and citizens remain vigilant and play an active role in keeping the county safe.
My family started boycotting Wal-Mart two weeks ago (that’s another story), but this is definitely the last straw. Americans needs to send a message to companies that rollover for the fascists in our federal government and peacefully withdraw monetary compensation. This includes the big banks, big IT like Google and Facebook, and corporate monsters like Wal-Mart. Americans acting in unison can force companies and even the federal government to ‘straighten up and fly right’. Starving the beasts is the only way to turn this ship of state away from the icebergs.
NEW YORK—Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, announced on Sunday that it would eliminate 11,000 jobs, or 10 percent of its total workforce, at its Sam’s Club warehouse stores.
The positions would be lost because the company has decided to outsource in-store demonstrations and product sampling to an outside firm. Previously, Sam’s Club employees had performed those duties. The announcement comes just after recent U.S. unemployment figures have started to decline modestly.
The company announced the cuts at a meeting on Sunday, according to AP. Sam’s Club CEO Brian Cornell reportedly said in a memo that it hired Shopper Events to take over demonstrating products in its store locations.
The job cuts totaling 11,200 include 10,000 jobs related to product demonstrations and 1,200 positions related to membership recruiting.
