Another reason to hate Wal-Mart

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Another reason to hate Wal-Mart

Postby Henry Vilas » Sat Apr 21, 2012 9:26 pm

Wal-Mart hushed up bribe network in Mexico

It reads like a John Grisham novel. U.S. and Mexican laws violated. Lawyers and execs involved in a coverup. Media investigation by the New York Times exposes their mendacity.

Beyond that, there is the violation of U.S. law (enacted because of widespread bribery in Mexico and other nations) and the coverup (a conspiracy violation). Let's see if our laws will be enforced in this case.

Great.

Now Wal-Mart will have to settle all this with a large chunk of cash and I'll have to start paying $.02 more for my protein powder I buy there.

I was thinking more along the lines of prison time for some of their execs and legal eagles, even if it's just Club Fed. Probably just wishful thinking on my part.

Maybe we can combine this with the "fast and furious" trial of Eric Holder and Barry Obama. :lol:
