January Jones – Missing News with Bill Deane!

Ala-Mart Green Light Program

It looked like a wonderful idea. Many vets, for example those without obvious war injuries, are not identifiable and with green light bulbs in our windows or on our lawns can show we know they are there—they haven’t been forgotten.

But behind this is Walmart which is advertising it is committed to giving veterans groups 20 million nationwide. That sounds worthy, but how many more millions will Walmart make selling its green light bulbs starting today. they are not giving them away.

More publicity for Walmart: Promising to hire a quarter of a million vets by 2020, by 5 years from now…that’s just ONE NINTH of Walmart’s present workforce. Doesn’t seem anymore a sacrifice than the 20 million dollar openended gift to vets groups and Walmart can drag out that promise over the next hundred years, if it wants to.

With about 320 Million Americans now and Walmart collecting 36.5 Million a day in the US alone, doesn’t seem Walmart’s pockets will notice the difference. What is sickening to me is Walmart is making millions selling green light bulbs. {We are told to buy 3.} while it fools us that Walmart is sacrificing, NOT Profiting as truly it is, while it ostensibly is making a patriotic gift to our vets–me included.
