We poor

We poor, downtrodden Middle Class Troglodytes might have an advocate, in our frustration with Big Oil, after all: Wal-Mart! Seems they’re a little disappointed with their earnings from the fiscal quarter that just ended, January 31st…Earth to Fat Cats: when fuel prices have jumped fifty cents a gallon over one month, plus the employee social security contribution having been restored to 6.2%, it kinda cuts into consumer discretionary spending. In other words, just groceries that are labeled Sam’s Choice or Great Value…no jeans, DVDs or CDs. Work It Out, Big Boys… can’t have your cake and eat it too.
