Walmart Discontinues Auto Part Sales To Prevent Car Accidents

BENTONVILLE, AR—In a bold move intended to curb the thousands of deaths from vehicles each and every day, Walmart has decided to stop selling auto parts, sources confirmed Tuesday.

According to shocking reports, people have purchased car parts at Walmart and then those cars have been involved in accidents, proving a direct correlation between selling auto parts and causing deaths.

"We can no longer be complicit in an industry that kills over 3,000 people a day," said a spokesperson for Walmart. "Every time we sell a muffler, steering wheel cover, or flame decal, we are potentially causing the death of a person, and we cannot support that any longer."

"It's clear that bad drivers and poor road conditions don't cause vehicular deaths---cars do."

Walmart executives said they are beating themselves with a stick to atone for the deaths they've already caused.

"Our consciences will only be clean when we've been mercilessly beaten once for each of the millions of deaths that have been caused by automobiles since Walmart began selling auto parts," said one executive before solemnly beginning to beat himself with a baseball bat.


A little satire making fun of Walmart for stopping ammo sales and asking people not to open carry in their stores. They claim it was because some nut job shot up their El Paso store. The irony is that store happens to be connected to a major mall there which prohibits any carrying; concealed or not so what law-abiding people do is leave their firearms in their car to shop in both at the same time.

Most of these shootings happen in gun-free zones. The problem isn't too many guns; it's lack of them in the hands of the good guys. I think any shooting that happens in a posted No-Guns Allowed business should be solid grounds for all family members hurt or killed to sue that business into oblivion. That business is claiming they can protect their customers from all crazies and criminals so when they don't and also don't allow their customers to protect themselves; they should be fully liable for all damages. Say $200M per person hurt or killed.

Hint: It's the left's plan to change our economic system from capitalism to socialism. A system that has never worked anywhere in the long run but did enrich the so-called elites at the top of that political system and made life miserable for most others. When it comes to leftist ideas and plans; just say no. Not now; not ever.

At the risk of coming across as a total Trump fanboy... I post this factual article. Author unknown.



IMF (International Monetary Fund) and Trump
This is not only excellent, it is an eye opener.

The IMF is warning that “global economies” will contract by $455 billion next year due to the ongoing trade conflict between the U.S., China, the EU and to a lesser extent, Japan.

President Trump will cost the “Global Economy” $455 billion, because that money will be transferred back to the America First economy. That’s what happens as MAGAnomics reverses the IMF trade (wealth distribution) model.

China and the EU have devalued their currency in an effort to block the impacts from President Trump and the ‘America First’ trade policy. Because those currencies are pegged against the dollar, the resulting effect is a rising dollar value. In essence, the globalist IMF is now blaming President Trump for having a strong economy that forces international competition to devalue their currency.

In the bigger picture is why President Trump is the most transformative economic President in the last 75 years. The post-WWII Marshall Plan was set up to allow Europe and Asia to place tariffs on exported American industrial products.

Those tariffs were used by the EU and Japan to rebuild their infrastructure after a devastating war. However, there was never a built in mechanism to end the tariffs…. until President Trump came along and said: “it’s over”!

After about 20 years (+/-), say 1970 to be fair, the EU and Japan received enough money to rebuild. But instead of ending the one-way payment system, Asia and the EU sought to keep going and build their economies larger than the U.S. Additionally, the U.S. was carrying the cost of protecting the EU (via NATO) and Japan with our military.

The EU and Japan didn’t need to spend a dime on defense because the U.S. essentially took over that role. But that military role, just like the tariffs, never ended. Again, until Trump.

The U.S. economy was the host for around 50 years of parasitic wealth exfiltration, or as most would say “distribution”. The term “exfiltration” better highlights that American citizens paid higher prices for stuff, and paid higher taxes within the overall economic scheme, than was needed.

President Trump is the first and only president who said: “enough”, and prior politicians who didn’t stop the process were “stupid” etc. etc. Obviously, he is 100% correct.

For the past 30 years the U.S. was a sucker to keep letting the process remain in place while we lost our manufacturing base to overseas incentives. The investment process from Wall Street (removal of Glass-Stegal) only made the process much more severe and faster. Wall Street was now investing in companies whose best bet (higher profit return) was to pour money overseas. This process created the “Rust Belt”, and damn near destroyed the aggregate manufacturing industry.

Unfortunately, putting ‘America First’ is now also against the interests of the multinationals on Wall Street; so President Trump has to fight adverse economic opponents on multiple fronts - and – their purchased mercenary army we know as DC politicians.

No-one, ever, could take on all these interests. Think about it. The EU, Asia, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, China, Russia, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Iran, U.S. Congress, Democrats, U.S. Senate, Wall Street, the Big Club, Lobbyists, Hollywood, Corporate Media (foreign and domestic), and the ankle-biters in Never Trump. All of these financial interests are aligned against Main Street USA and against President Trump.

Name one individual who could take them on simultaneously and still be winning, big.
They say he’s one man. They say they have him outnumbered. Yet somehow, as unreal as it seems, he’s the one who appears to have them surrounded!

Dems are threatening the US Supreme Court now because they don't have a clear one-sided corrupt leftist SCOTUS. What we have now is about as middle of the road as it can be with 4 dem Justices who always, without fail practically, vote down party lines. Then we have 3 fairly right wing pro-constitution Justices and then Roberts who goes both ways (remember the obamacare debacle where he threaded a bunch of needle to swing it to the left). And lastly; Kavanaugh. The newest Justice who is a Constitutionalist. In a perfect world all 9 would be just like him. Verdicts based on our constitution; not ideology. If anything; the court is slightly left.

Democrats warn Supreme Court it's too unhealthy to hear gun case

So there you are sitting on your front porch with a cold longneck when the local PD rolls up in your yard. Then another parks out by the street. Three officers approach you on your front porch and inform you that there has been a report you are drinking. "Well sure I am!" You say "it's Friday night and I plan to have another.

"We need your car keys sir" the young officer says.
"What for?" You inquire.
His reply shocks you..."We have to take your car to keep you from hurting someone!"
"How am I going to hurt someone sitting on my porch with a beer?"
"Well your neighbor says you were threatening a trip to the beach this weekend and you've been accused of drinking, so we have to take your car!"
"But I'm not driving now!"
"Sir it remains that you have threatened to drive and you are drinking, so we must take possession of your vehicle. You may come to the courthouse Monday for a hearing to determine when and if you may get your car back!"

This is the same as a red flag gun law!

Having your property (no matter what it is) seized because someone says you MIGHT POSSIBLY do something; is a violation of the 4th amendment!

No "due process"
No facing your accuser
You're gonna miss those freedoms when they're gone!
Fight for them before they are!

I seen this clip yesterday and she is correct in what she said. Your post about the red flag laws, I'm afraid that people will abuse them just to get someone they don't like. All of these mass shootings are horrific and I have several theories of what is causing them. when I was in High School most of the guys had a long gun in their car/truck in the school parking lot. Some on a easyrider riffle rack in the back window. No one ever shot anyone, guys would have a fight but no one ever pulled a gun out of their truck. Now that was small town USA in a Christian town and 50 years ago.

The gun hasn't changed. The gun owners haven't changed. What has changed is our society. Parents, schools, courts are more permissive. No one is brought up learning there are consequences. Everyone is brought up given a sense of self-importance. Abhorrent behaviors are tolerated, so no one reports it to responsible authorities. Bang! Bang! Bang!
