Wal Mart Begging

NYTimes (you need a free account to view)

With Wal-Mart Stores under mounting pressure to spend more on employee health insurance, the company's chief executive on Sunday urged the nation's governors not to pass legislation that would burden the giant retailer, and pledged to work with the governors to move workers off state Medicaid rolls.

The executive, H. Lee Scott Jr., said that state bills aimed at improving Wal-Mart's benefits "may score short-term political points, but they won't solve America's health care challenges."

Mr. Scott said that Wal-Mart's health plans were "not perfect" but that the company was committed to improving the health care system by expanding its benefits and by opening low-cost medical clinics for workers and the public in its stores.

Trying to broaden a debate over employer health care plans that has focused heavily on Wal-Mart, Mr. Scott said: "At the end of the day, this is not about me. It is not about Wal-Mart. And it is not about you. It is about all of us and what we can do to keep this country great."

I found this yesterday and have been discussing on another blog. Discussing might not be the best word, I'm getting blasted along with Wal Mart, America and anyone else that doesn't agree the blog owner. Check it out here: The News Blog. Just to clearify things I found that blog while checking on the Wal Mart story, I've just visited it the last 2 days.

The short version of my views is this- legistration to force WM to provide healthcare is bad. Medicaid is bad. Big government is bad. Socialized healthcare is bad. LBJ did a bad thing with his Great Society junk. Subsidizing anything with tax money is bad. Fairtax is good.

You may not think socialized medicine is bad if you ever get sick, hurt, can't work, become "uninsurable", etc, etc.

Our current system is inhumane, pure and simple.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Two days ago I found this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Xbox tournaments for money[/url]
They say you can play online FIFA Soccer game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

Hails folks! I have a budget tattoo salon in Los Angeles. Previously I bought all tattoo equipment at really low prices but my supplier got jailed (yeah, hard to believe) so I'm trying to find a low cost tattoo supplies firm (online or offline) to buy tattoo supplies from. Here is an example of what I am looking for: Tattoo Equipment. Thank you very much in advance for all tips folks! PM me or drop me some lines at: triple6tattoo@hotmail.com
