    Is this really Tom Friedman's mansion, or is this pic another Net hoax?

    I would never set foot into a Wal Mart. They are a horrible employer and they sell mostly imitation, cheaply made, foreign crap from the third world. Their always low prices are definitely not all what they are cracked up to be. That is one major retailer that I would love to see go out of business.

    As American taxpayers, we are forced to subsidize the lavish lifestyle of the super-rich Walton family. Instead of paying their workers a living wage with decent benefits, the Waltons enrich themselves and rely on taxpayers to pick up all the welfare, medicaid, food stamps, etc. that their struggling employees require to stay alive.
    The billionaire Waltons laugh all the way to the bank, as they buy multiple mansions and private jets to amuse themselves with.
    There are so many CEOs getting rich off "corporate welfare," it's really sickening.

    Exactly like the National Football League (NFL) where both the owners, coaching staff, and players are filthy rich for playing a kids game living a lavish lifestyle while expecting the taxpayers to fully fund the design and construction of their elaborate football stadiums and practice facilities.
