 1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart every hour of every day.
 2.  This works out to $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, is the world's 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 and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only 15 years.
 8.  During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

  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 2,906 are Super Centers; this is  1,000 more than it had five years ago.
 11.  This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will    occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth's population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)
 12.  90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.
 13.  Wal-Mart has gross sales that total more than the total revenue of all the countries in the world, except 6.
You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the ground work for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy.
