With two, crack your chest, open heart surgeries and 9 bypasses; with an implanted defibrillator because of a wiring "short" in my heart and a stent - seeing God's Hands at work never surprise me.

He's Loving and Thoughtful and He's given us a list to tell us how to ask Him for help.

He is Perfect and I pray one day that my spirit will be in His Light and be an extension of His Will.

Based on my personal experience with Walmart, I think you all are naieve if you think ANYTHING happened to the clerk.

That cheeky clerk deserved whatever punishment was meted out.

Most of our local clerks are just clueless, but fortunately very quiet. Some of the others, if you can get them to relax and act human, are just regular folks, and they have basically the same complaints and problems as the rest of us. By the way, most folks around here are very conservative in their thoughts and beliefs.

Now, IF we can just get them to VOTE that way this November!

What I would tell your friend is don't forget a call to 1800-Walmart. things that managers would normally ignore (ie customer complaints) get taken care of when you follow up with a call to home office! Believe me it works :-)

We can't be helping Haiti for oil. Bush isn't President any more and he was the only one worried about oil emoticon

Very cool! I had the cable man out a few weeks back and I had the radio on and was listening to Glenn Beck. This dude proceeded to launch into this whole thing about how health care is the right thing to do, Beck and Rush hate the poor and Rush is racist. I said I disagreed but was a little apprehensive about debating seeing how much we conservatives have been vilified lately. The last thing I needed was this dude complaining that I was racist. I felt better though after he explained that on 9/11 when Bush found out that a plane had hit the Pentagon and one had gone down in PN, he and Cheney decided to send military cargo planes into the WTC Towers. I did not bother to tell him the towers were attacked first, he was so sure about it and passionate, I just figured you can't debate someone that thinks like that.

P.S. Apparently the only reason the US is helping Haiti is so oil companies can get the oil under the island.

The entire attitude of Walmart employees toward customers is horrible. But that starts at the top.

WalMart takes it VERY seriously if a customer is upset, conservative or liberal.

I would bet dollars to doughnut holes she learned that lesson VERY thoroughly. Even if she did get a "free" break, she didn't think of it as "free".

As a District, then Regional manager for their portrait studios for nine years, I know that ANYTHING that may negatively impact their bottom line is a big deal, and if a Manager checked someone out . . . well, I wouldn't want to be in that employee's shoes.

I have NO faith in Walmart, whatsoever. I can tell you first-hand, personal stories about Walmart.

She probably just got a free, extra break in her shift.

Wouldn't you have loved to set her down and compare some statistics???? Then she'd find out it was SHE who was one of THOSE people...ignorant!

emoticon We do need to start standing up to this kind of abuse, because that is what it really is called, Abuse or better Verbal Abuse. I hope that I can think that quick on my feet and do something like that. I saw to night on Greta a group protesting in Washington D.C. the sign they had a huge sign saying they were the Real 95%, Who are they Kidding, when did the less than 25% become the true 85%?

Just HAD to post this!!

A friend of mine just told me that her husband went to Wal-Mart and bought Sean Hannity's newest book. As he was checking out, the cashier picked up the book and said, "Oh you're one of THOSE people! I wish YOUR kind would just leave him alone! He's doing good things!"

Well, my friend said her husband was stunned at first and then recovered enough to ask the cashier if she had a manager on duty. The cashier called the manager up and after my friend's husband asked if it was Wal-Mart's policy to encourage their staff to critique the purchases of their customers (and explained what the cashier had done), the cashier was sent to the break room and the manager finished checking him out.

How COOL is THAT?! I told my friend to tell her hubby that he's a GREAT American!! We just need more people who won't take the abuse that's being heaped on us by the liberal idiots!

Have a wonderful weekend, all!

GOD BLESS AMERICA!! emoticon

I can do this, with God's help!!!

With God, ALL things are possible!!

Now all glory to GOD, who is able, through HIS might power at work within us, to accomplish INFINITELY more than we might ask or think!
-- Ephesians 3:20
