Low prices until all their competition is out of business -- then raise them.
Um Jack the website you link to shows you are incorrect. first of all the purchase was for 90% of the store not 80% and in now way whatsoever does it reference underselling the competition to push granny and grampy retailer out of business. I live in the area now and while a large portion of people I talk with go to NFM many do not because there is only one store and the prices arent that much different than the other retailers in my rather swank Overland Park (better than Missouri) part of town.
Now could you provide some proof NFM pushes the smaller operations out of the market?
Seems to me your just pissy because they built in Kansas. Of course it is quite odd for a free wheel, no or low tax republican to bitch about business ownership.
Were Cheney and people with shares in defense and oil industries the only people who accrued debt from the Iraq War? No? Then it works both ways and stop complaining about it. You're inventing a fictional "us and them" mindset where only one side gets some type of benefit they aren't paying for. It goes both ways.
Regardless on Jan 1st two million families will be taken off of unemployment benefits. Which will put all of those folks on the dole once again. Additionally their spending which is dollar for dollar of what they receive ... so if the average weekly amount to a claimant is 295 then 2.4 Billion leaves our economy immediately...
Add to that the failure of the House to pass a farm bill and consider milk and dairy prices doubling.....
Hope all of you have saved up for your republican driven recession.
In your small mindedness, I would expect you to think that it's because the store is in Kansas. Wrong. You live in the white only section of Kansas -- the NFM store is in the segregated white section of the black county you joco folks like to make fun of.
Since Obama just increased the deficit by about $1 billion/year with his executive order on raises for executives -- can anyone really say that Obama is serious about curbing spending or controlling the deficit?
I don't think Obama really gives a fuck about the financial security of the USA.
You don't? The shock!
That we are capable only of being what we are, remains our unforgivable sin.

No worries ........ Pres. Obama is making the Sunday Talk Show rounds today ........ all is saved
I hear his basic premise is to blame Boehner/McConnell/Repubs
but by all means watch for yourself
this is a guy who didn't show up for months - while campaigning
and he's still campaigning it seems
blame game bullshit
accountability for all but ME
Happy New Year american public
Four more years Chance.
Four more years.
He is not willing to reduce spending enough to make progress toward eliminating the defecit. The tax raise is the only bargaining chip the Republicans have, and if they give it up without solving the deficit problem, it is only a matter of time until we bankrupt the country.
Ahhh .. you can always tell when the argument fails = the cutesy cute names come out...
That said we do need to cut DHS.... just consider that EVERY police department in the nation gets money from DHS.... Arguably it should be a Presidential appointee directed department that enforces laws as that is one of his constitutional duties. However after 9/11 it has exploded way out of control... when DHS is funding drones for departments we have slipped through the looking glass.
Still ALL of this is the result of a do nothing congress rooted in a hapless and inefficient House that has no form of leadership to speak of in any terms other than pathetic.
Consider that besides taxes we get unemployment cuts, 1.2 trillion in across the board cuts and no farm bill so the Dairy Cliff...lol.. that title dairy cliff would be amusing if it wasn't such a sad reminder of ineffective dolts in the House.
Obama has come more than halfway and Boehner couldn't get a majority of the majority just to send it to the floor. THAT is the bottom line.
I predict they will now pass a continued tax break for those under 400k and in return unemployment benefits will not lapse for two million. That and the Senate passed bill that has been floundering in the house since well before the election will be passed at the last possible moment... disgraceful.
Congress voted themselves a raise last week for their ineptitude. I say we go over the cliff and make them pay more.
To be fair Congress voted a wage increase that EVERYONE on the public dime gets. And the President instituted a freeze on those raises across the board claiming not to allow another raise until the private sector recovers.... or rather by stating that the government should not get raises while the public who pays their check are not getting raises.
Well Obama lifted that or it would not have occurred. I will bet you that is some of the closed door decisions made by those vultures.
Senator Bob Corker (R) Tennessee says a deal will be struck and predicts it at $500K
which means the faux $250K = rich will be kaboshed
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...old/?hpt=po_c2"We're going to deal with this tax issue," he continued. "We're going to deal with it either before midnight tomorrow or in the next couple of weeks, but nobody in the country - 99%, 98% of the people in the country should not be worried about revenues. But what they should be worried about is we still haven't tackled the issue of fiscal solvency."
BTW before you spin it out of control that is just a question not aligning the current issues with Bush so please don't get confused.
Had republicans came to the table willingly we would have decreased the deficit much more so over the last four years but it took years of legislative losses and maneuvering to bend them over a barrel and get them to actually come up with solutions.
Finally, what does Chance suggest would be the proper course for recovering from a massive recession? NO spending and allowing the country to careen into a deep depression?
It is simply a moniker devoid of reality. But that is on par with your republican lackies. They have been devoid of reality for going on 15 years now.
hence President Deficit
even now he's not concerned about the budget deficit - only about tax rates ...... cause HE PROMISED
"we'll deal with the deficit later"
we'll deal with the deficit after he leaves office is my guess
stimulus money should be used to RETRAIN people from skills/jobs that are no longer required into those that fit our new economy
and it shouldn't be shepherded by the likes of reid and pelosi who put the president on mute
he's too busy for the details
as for republicans coming to the table ........... be serious - the house has submitted proposals - for a long time now - just not the kind that democrats want - they'd rather demagogue them
Obama is paying Bush's tab.
Bush started two costly wars with no plan to ever pay for them. He was a financial moron. If Obama has balanced the budget on Day 1, you would be living through a bottomless Depression right now instead of a tough recession.
Show me the republican plan to balance the deficit with tax revenue included and I will agree they offered a viable plan. Conservatives and liberals got together and offered a bi-partisan approach that was not taken up for a vote because it failed a super-majority based off of ALL the republicans voting against it.
face it chance republicans wanna be in the wilderness out of power and still protect the rich, corporation and the defense industry. nothing else has importance. it is pure ignorance.
Even if we get a deal it will still be only a drop in the bucket for the national debt overall. It still will grow, it's still a ticking time bomb. If we can't even do a partial solution without all the crap, how are we going to deal with permanent structural reform?
^ what is "absolute" agreement ?
I agree we should pass what we can to minimize any damage from not coming to an overall agreement. I still think 1 million should be the benchmark, not $250,000 or even $500,000. Revenue fairness isn't going to bring in such a big gusher of money to make much of a difference on the debt or deficit. Republicans have to accept though bringing in more revenue through tax loophole closures and even marginal rate changes. Defense also has to be substantially reformed...not gutted but serious savings have to come from the budget. Same goes for Democratic pet programs... we have to slow growth and prioritize and truly reform how our services are delivered. Nobody on the right or left will be thrilled but we cannot allow ideologues to harm our future any more.
i fear that what worries us now about lack of consensus/inertia could be far worse
democratic stated unwillingness to deal with entitlements - democratic blind support of unions - democrat willingness to use tax rates as a means of revenue generation in lieu of economic growth
scares the shit out of me
and the reality is the dems have just done a better sales job on their incompetence than the repubs
The greatest inequity between classes since just prior to the great depression. WHAT is possibly confusing about that?
Entitlements should not altered to remove capability which is all republicans appear to offer. The best method would be doing what the 70's congress had the foresight to do and adjust it to meet the need. It is not the problem. Doubling our defense budget for two barely useful wars IS the problem.
You cannot say the wars were wasted. Without them the terrotist would have had a free rein to bomb us at will. Both parties agreed about the necessity of the for the Afghan war and Obama is apparently not going to withdraw in2014.
