Wal-Mart Executives Sweat Slow
February Start in E-Mails

Bloomberg News, by Renee Dudley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/15/2013 3:05:34 PM

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. had the worst sales start to a month in seven years as payroll-tax increases hit shoppers already battling a slow economy, according to internal e-mails obtained by Bloomberg News. “In case you haven’t seen a sales report these days, February MTD sales are a total disaster,” Jerry Murray, Wal- Mart’s vice president of finance and logistics, said in a Feb. 12 e-mail to other executives, referring to month-to-date sales.[Snip] Wal-Mart and discounters such as Family Dollar Stores Inc. are bracing for a rise in the payroll tax to take a bigger bite from the paychecks

For those who haven´t yet noticed, when WalMart [IIRC, they dropped the hyphen] runs those TV ads touting their low prices, it means you´ll find higher prices in the stores.

They also have phony "roll-back" labels on their shelves. For example, I´ve seen them raise an item´s price from $1.25 to $1.78 for a week or two [no doubt knowing they´ll have much lower sales for a while], then "cut" it to $1.48 and put out big "Rollback!" signage.

And higher prices per package aren´t the whole story. You may also find the package contents count reduced and the price raised. One example, 200-count house-brand tissues cut to 182-count [9 percent], plus the box price went up. 25% overall price hikes aren´t uncommon. Keep an eye out for these tricks. Speak up.

If WalMart is hurting, things are getting bad.

I walked through a JC Penney the other day, and the place was almost empty. The stock was skimpy, too.

Walmart has really been raising prices recently. On many, many items they are higher than our local Kroger stores. In some cases, Food Lion is lower too. As with all stores, the shopper cannot assume that Walmart is the lower price option because in many cases that is not true.

WalMart is an avoid at all costs store for our family. My wife finds the stores depressing. I find the stuff on the selves to be Chinese junk. Also, never buy meat or veggies there...they are sourced from suspect countries. And their prices for everything else are not that good. Rather go to Target.

Regardless of one´s opinion of WalMart, we need to focus on the real story here, that WalMart and the dollar stores "are bracing for a rise in the payroll tax to take a bigger bite from the paychecks of shoppers already dealing with elevated unemployment." (FTA) 0bama is destroying our economy and this country.

WalMart does feel like a cheap junk store. Their employees so often look miserable. #1, me too. I think people would be surprised to know how many technically well-off people have cut WAY back on a lot of expenses. I am truly following a proper budget for the first time.

I wonder why, in stories dealing with this issue, writers almost never never refer to the Social Security "tax" but instead always call it the payroll tax???

To be quite accurate, the payroll tax really refers to the part of the contribution that the employer makes to the employee´s total contribution. It is if you will, a tax on the employer´s payroll, hence the payroll tax.

Writers should want readers to understand that at retirement, this contribution they are making today to Social Security will provide a large part of their income. Indeed, some folks live almost entirely on this entitlement and they should be proud that they are helping to provide for their future security.... and calling their contribution a tax misses the point and misleads.

One of the reasons this country has been allowed to go into the financial hole so deeply is that we have so many financially illiterate citizens and calling contributions to Social Security, that will be returned with interest (and likely much more), continues to perpetuate this untruth and does nothing to educate readers.

This is not a political issue and not one of semantics, but one of dollars and cents and common sense. People need to understand what is a tax and what is not otherwise Barack Obama can have them believing anything.

Why is it called a payroll tax INCREASE when it was suspended for a time, to be re-instated at a later date. The later date is here. Are they trying to get something going with calling it a tax?

I notice when we´re out on Friday evening to eat and go grocery shopping, the parking lots of restaurants like Olive Garden, Outback - the ones you always find in a row together - are packed. Of course this is season which may account for a lot of it.

300ft-long ´airship´ unveiled in
Britain is the world´s longest aircraft

At 302ft, it is the world’s longest aircraft. That’s longer than the Airbus A380 airliner and almost as long as Big Ben is high. But that is not the HAV304’s main claim to fame. It is a hybrid aircraft – part plane and part airship. It is also almost 30ft (8m) longer than the airlift cargo aircraft Antonov An-225, which was until now the longest aircraft ever built. The giant aircraft is being displayed at Cardington in Bedfordshire in the only hangar big enough to accommodate the 113ft (34m) wide and 85ft (26m) high beast.

Three-week wait to see your doctor:
Millions of patients are denied a

Millions of patients wait as long as three weeks to see their GP, a Daily Mail survey reveals today. Only one in three manages to secure a same-day appointment, despite Government promises to make such slots routinely available. One in five cannot get a consultation within seven days. The survey suggests that two million adults wait between two and three weeks to see a doctor and half a million suffer a delay of three or four weeks. Leading GPs say the figures reflect their struggle to meet the demands of a growing population with ever larger numbers of pensioners.

Britain is threatened by the "largest migratory wave in its history"--and its three main parties are doing nothing about it--warned UKIP leader Nigel Farage, as he put immigration at the heart of his party´s campaign strategy for the May European elections. In a characteristically rousing speech at the party´s Spring conference at the south Devon seaside resort Torbay, received with a standing ovation by the party faithful, Farage said: "It is not extremist to talk about immigration: it is the responsible and right thing to do." Since 2004, he noted, there has been a "doubling of youth unemployment," and a

Ukraine: Putin´s Crimea aim

If you want to invade a country, it’s important to call it a liberation. Over the coming weeks and months, that’s what we’re going to see in Ukraine. In fact it has started already. Just look at the Crimea. Troops in unmarked uniforms have started guarding the region’s main airport. They’re being assisted by some local people. After all, they’re just there to help. Ukraine’s President Yanukovych, who was ousted only a week ago, is defining himself as a leader deposed in a coup, and the regional government of Crimea, home of a majority ethnic Russian population, is rejecting the new government in Kiev as illegitimate.

Three days before the 1994 State of the Union Address, President Bill Clinton´s advisers fretted about including a line promising that participants in the still-viable Hillarycare insurance overhaul would be allowed to keep their favored doctors and health care plans, a concern that would come back years later when President Barack Obama promised the same thing. The line, which made it into the final speech in a slightly different form--Clinton told Americans they would have ´the freedom to choose a plan and the right to choose your own doctor´--was the subject of controversy because his aides knew it was untrue.

Mass immigration has left Britain an "unrecognisable" country that many people would not want to leave to their children and grandchildren, Nigel Farage has said. In one of his strongest attacks on immigration policy, he said the arrival of migrants has some British people feeling that parts of the country are now alien to them. The UK Independence Party leader said parts of the country had been "taken over" by foreigners and told how he caught a recent commuter train from London to Kent and had to wait for several stops before he heard English being spoken.

The US economy grew at a much slower rate from October to December than originally predicted, the US Commerce Department said. US gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an annualised rate of 2.4% in the fourth quarter of 2013, down from an initial estimate of 3.2%. The revision is down to weaker than expected consumer spending. Severe winter weather in the US is expected to slow growth further in the current quarter. The Commerce Department initially predicted consumer spending had expanded by 3.3%, but spending is now estimated to have grown at a 2.6% annual rate.

Carousing around a village harbour holding aloft dozens of flaming torches and bellowing tales of Norse folklore, one might expect to attract a few curious glances. Yet, marching a couple of feet behind a Viking longboat as we process through the streets of Scalloway, I soon realise the raised eyebrows and bemused expressions of onlookers are directed not at the raucous chaps with the unkempt beards and crimson cloaks, but towards me. In Scalloway, you see, everyone is a Viking. Once the capital of the Shetland Islands, the village may now have lost that crown to Lerwick, but it still holds

But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids.

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama´s re-election. The administration´s tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify. The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it.

SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine — Heightened Russian military activity in Crimea on Friday prompted a stern warning from President Obama and a deepening sense of crisis among the leaders of the new Ukrainian government in Kiev. U.S. officials said Russian troops had entered Crimea, and Obama told reporters Friday evening that he was “deeply concerned by reports of military movements” and that there “will be costs for any military intervention.” Earlier in the day, the new Ukrainian government said that hundreds of soldiers in green camouflage, without insignia but carrying military-style automatic rifles, had taken over two airports in Crimea.
