Walmart’s “Sam’s Club” is similar to Costco in terms of how and what they sell. The stark differences between the two business models are below. Sam’s Club follows the Wall Street business model of redistributing income from the 99 to the 1 percent, and Costco management has rejected that Wall Street business model.

There was a reason why Apple Inc. builds their stuff in China and Taiwan and elsewhere; some of it has to do with money, but there are other reasons, as well. An example is provided below.
“The chemical n-hexane used in the Taiwanese-owned Wintek factory caused dozens to faint, fall ill and complain of headaches and other mild symptoms. But many workers were hit harder, suffering nerve damage in their hands and feet from exposure to the chemical, the use of which is regulated in China. The lasting impact of their exposure to the toxin remains unknown, and Apple has repeatedly ignored requests for comment on the situation. They did mention the case in their 2010 corporate supplier report, but said the matter had been solved.”

Last Summer, I was sitting next to Dante at the Southwest Community Center of Portland, Oregon as we waited for the basketball game to end. We were going to play in the following game. Dante is a medical doctor.
I explained to Dante my ailments and all the times the doctors at Kaiser Permanente had told me I was hurting and nothing could be done about it.
“I got hit with a basketball right on the ear,” I said, “and I got a ringing in my ear and went to Kaiser for relief. The doctor looked in my ear and twenty seconds after he entered the room he said, “You got Tinnitus.”
“Ringing of the Ears.”
I scratched my ear and said, “I know that. Now what can we do about it?”
“If you can’t do anything, why don’t you send me to a specialist?”
“Sorry,” he said, “There’s nothing they can do.”
He turned and walked out the door.
It turns out it was all a lie. There were cures for Tinnitus and I found them.
Dante turned to me, smiled and said, “The US health care system is broken. That’s why they treat you like that.”

Okay, Senator Useful Idiot Ron Wyden thinks that more competition will stifle the rise in health care costs. Some of the medical companies that benefit from those price increases probably paid the useful idiot a ton of money to utter such nonsense. Competition hasn’t worked to stifle price increases, or hasn’t anyone noticed? The story is below, but check out the video first. It begins as a comedy, but then moves into how broken the US medical system is.
