En as jy wil 'n idee van wat die Amerikaanse konserwatiewe
in gedagte het vir die armes te spaar van hulself,
kliek op die bogenoemde te begin.


20h45 UTC; MONDAY, 25 NOVEMBER 2013: For those of you who need a reason to actually boycott Walmart over the Thanksgiving Long Weekend (as if expecting certain employees to work on Thanksgiving Day proper wasn't disgusting enough), you'll want to watch this brief video carefully. Which shows beyond reasonable doubt the outright doublethink and tu quoque the world's largest retailer enjoys displaying by, on the one hand, insisting that the Lower Classes need to look for work all the more ... and yet, on the other hand, compelling its rank-and-file Associates to go on welfare to compensate for the low wages forced upon them "for competitive reasons," or so the canard would have it.

And it turns out that Walmart's mindset towards the Lower Classes is rooted all the deeper in doublethink, what with, on the one hand, their insisting, in common with conservative thought generally, that the defence of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe is essential to AmeriKKKan National Character and Identity as a Sovereign Peculiar Among the Nations ... but, on the other hand, failing to accept that their business practices, and reinforcing trick and deception, have essentially undermined small business and the "REAL AmeriKKKa" Walmart and Corporate AmeriKKKa insist on being seen as the True Guardians and Defenders of, especially where conservative prolefeed is used in reinforcement therefor.

Meanwhile, think of the following as Another Walmart Commercial Your Correspondent Would Love to See (with fullest Appy Polly Loggies to Mad Magazine in its zenith there): With its corporate image campaign, "The Real Walmart," now seeking to tell the Unwashed Masses that its Associates "never had it so good," as it were, maybe it was time for another Obviously Rooted in Reality commercial showing a more realistic model of Walmart Associate.

One, it turns out, dependent on the same welfare its prolefeed troubadors want the shame the poor into leaving by the simple expedient of finding work as just isn't out there, for the most part (and for which blame can be laid upon the GOP for policies as essentially prevent stateside jobs creation while insisting all along that the private sector is "perfectly capable" of making jobs available "if only they made the effort to make jobs available for once" solely out of the goodness of its collective heart and mind). And who, it turns out, is letting slip all manner of Inconvenient Truths Walmart Doesn't Want You Knowing About its Associates, especially at entry level:
  • Associates being required to participate in weekly lectures reeking of Soviet-model "political instruction," only this time grounded in neo-cnservative "Tea Party," "9/12," "Christian Patriot" and suchlike ideologies and their jingoistically xenophobic articles of faith. Including at least one such "discussion group"-stylee session insisting that Walmart's business model is essentially one with the "natural evolutionary processes" of ekonomesie vryheid, &c., relative to AmeriKKKan National Character and Identity, and their wanting to stop at nothing, As God is Our Witness, to achieve Total World Domination By Any Means Necessary.
  • Use of extreme mind-control techniques of the Scientologist model (including the "Fair Game" doctrine), not to mention old-school fear and mind games aimed at keeping Associates hard-wired to the official line under pain of Dire Consequences as may adversely affect later chances at advancement.
  • Their "401(k) plans" actually being no better than disguised High-Yield Investment Plans (HYIP's) making investments inapproriate for more mainstream retirement savings schemes, especially where low-skilled or unskilled employees make up most of the workforce (and, hence, can't be expected to challenge such schemes in the first place).
  • Tales of Drunkenness and Cruelty (as may or may not be anecdotal) revealing just how psychotic Walmart hath become as a workplace, in its turn explaining such abnormally high employee turnover levels they have among "big box" retailers (as well as anecdotal stories of employees being driven insane by the demands of supervisors winding up in psychiatric institutions or, in extremis, taking The Other Way Out).
No wonder, then, that Real America ought boycott Walmart this Festive Season--especially so on Thanksgiving night, which, in and of itself, should be spent in rest after a rather large and yet traditional dinner emblematic of family unity and cohesion (in theory, at least).
