- Christy Harris If Sam Walton were seeing this, he would be rolling over in his grave.... I am finding it difficult to believe it has gotten this bad within the company.... When I worked for Sams back in 1991, the pay was 10.00/hr and that was when the minimum wage was below 7 something, it was more like 5 something.Sam Walton always said if he took care of his people, they would take care of his company.... It was true! He offered benefits at a low price to help employees back then... It seems they have forgotten about what his wishes were and I feel horrible that so many hundreds of thousands of people are being slaved out it seems!This is a shame and I hope the uppers are seeing the result of the BAIN mentality within ALL of their stores!
Mitt, Tagg and Ann Romney
Employees of Romney Family's Secret Bank Tied to Fraud, Money Laundering and Drug CartelsAs previously reported in by the Columbus Free Press, the Romney family, namely Mitt, Ann, G Scott and Tagg Romney, along with Mitt's "6th son" and campaign finance chair have a secretive private equity firm called Solamere Capital Partners. This firms ties to Romney's campaign and bundlers is already well documented, along with its connection to the manufacture and distribution of voting machines. What is not as well documented is a subsidiary of that private equity firm hiring employees of a failed firm tied to a Ponzi scheme that has a long history of money laundering for Latin American drug cartels and to the Iran-Contra scandal.As reported by ThinkProgress, Solamere Capital Partner's subsidiary Solamere Advisors is a investment advisory group, providing advice to Solamere clients and boosting sales. Would-be corporate pugilist Tagg Romney is a director. According to the New York Times, all but one of its 11 employees came from the Charlotte office of the Stanford Financial Group, the US investment arm of convicted felon R. Allen Stanford's offshore banking and fraud network that comprised a host of companies including the Stanford International Bank, Stanford Capital Management, The Bank of Antigua, Stanford Trust and Stanford Gold and Bullion. Three of these employees, Tim Bambauer, Deems May, and Brandon Phillips, received incentive compensation related to their direct sales of securities linked to a fraud that brought down this banking network.Sunday, 21 October 2012 09:48 By Gerry Bello and Bob Fitrakis, The Free Press | News Analysis
Tagg Denies...apparently trying to shield Daddy MittDuring his keynote speech at an election law symposium at University of Toledo on Friday, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted (R) claimed two recent court decisions restoring early voting on the last three days before the election was “un-American.”More recent stuff on Mitt & Tagg Romney Shady Dealings with a Ponzi Scheme......
Despite previous assertions to the contrary, SEC documents link Mitt Romney and his son Tagg Romney to a firm involved in the Allen Stanford $7 billion Ponzi scheme.
Tagg, who recently threatened to “take a swing” at the President, has previously denied the links but legal filings say otherwise.

Despite voter thinking, it's about the legal tricks of Voter Supression. Denying the democrats.
Ohio Secretary of State Says Restoring Early Voting Is ‘Un-American’Ohio Sec of State Husted (R) has sought to restrict early voting, even openly defying a court order to lift the ban on voting on the last three days before Election Day. Once the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear his appeal, Husted immediately capped voting hours at just 16 hours for the entire three day period, down from 24 hours in 2008.

The Murdoch media group (Fox, NY Post, WSJ, Wash Times (korean) and certain other right leaning radio, TV, web mogels have a pretty firm hold on conservative American thinking. They have only one point of view for their readers, viewers.
Not sure whether the so-called INDEPENDENTS read/watch partisan media of the right (already mentioned) or the left (MSNBC, sometimes CNN, Huff Post, NYT, Alternet).
NO telling FOR WHOM the independents vote...depends probably on mainstream breaking news or the debates. Or those who happen to vote on their personal economic interests....or bigotries/loyalties about Romney or Obama.
SADLY, and what UPSETS ME MOST, the most important thing....is the FIX already in, in the Republican held states where voter suppression has already dictated a winner by excluding their states' minority votes through new state laws?
Things could get pretty dicey if a lot of Americans think another election was stolen like the one in Florida a few years back.
Who knows? Would they get away with it, or would Americans rebel, slowly and hungrily at first? And how?
It could become The American Spring! We haven't had that in quite a while as the country wants its traditional "everyone votes" democracy back. Would this new "Homeland Security" try to defend the current government's establishment? Would the cops protest too, and stay home or become soldiers of the government?
Maybe we should not be so arrogant as to lecture the Arab, Russian and Chinese how to do democracies correctly. after all....lets THINK about this!
We have our own problems about that...having to do with the money influence of acquired wealth on our fragile, media-dominated democracy and who we should vote for!
Maybe the pro-business Supreme Court went too far! Wouldn't it be horrible if that spelled the downfall of American democracy?
