HOW BIG WAS WAL-MART in 2009?

1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart every hour of every  day. 
2. This results in $20,928 profit  every minute!
3. Wal-Mart will sell more from  January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all  year.
4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home  Depot + Kroger + Target + Sears + Costco + K-Mart  combined.
5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million  people and is the largest private employer.  And most speak  English
6. Wal-Mart is the largest company  in the history of the World.
7. Wal-Mart now sells more food  than Kroger & Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in  only 15 yrs.
8. During this same period, 31  Supermarket chains sought bankruptcy (including  Winn-Dixie)
9. Wal-Mart now sells more food  than any other store in the world..
10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900  stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers;          this is 1,000 more than it had 5 years  ago. 
11. This year 7.2 billion different  purchasing experiences will occur at a Wal-Mart  store. (Earth’s  population is approximately 6.5 billion.) 
12. 90% of all Americans live  within 15 miles of a Wal-Mart

 You may think that I am complaining, but I’m  not. I’m laying the ground  work for suggesting that Wal-Mart should have been the one that  bailed out Wall Street, GM, the Housing fiasco,  etc.  Then, let them  run the  government.  Obviously someone there knows what they’re doing.
