A Shiny New Conspiracy Theory

A new nut job conspiracy theory has hatched recently. Apparently the handful of Walmart stores that were closed unexpectedly are supposedly tied to a military operation called Jade Helm. The operation has something to do with declairing martial law by summer. Or the stores have plumbing issues that require closing up to make proper repairs. You know, one or the other.

If they were flying the Stars & Bars I'd go along with martial law by July 4th. The feds are already butting into each and every case they can & throwing the local cops under the bus.

For a second there, I thought I was reading "The Onion".

In some ways this story sounded familiar to what I was told many years ago by my best friend's father. Father was a West Coast regional manager for Sears-Roebuck and told us of a store where the employees tried to form a union. The company shut down the store, cleaned house and reopened with all new personnel.

For this WalMart story, I poked around and found a few analyses, mainly from the union's point of view, but they did emphasize that the employees had tried to form employee unions at these locations.

Usually, the simplest explanation is the correct one.

Whatever else, I'm not buying the plumbing problem story.

Can 't you all see it?! They are talking about secret tunnels and an invasion force of Chinese here to disarm Americans. It's not a US government conspiracy, it's those wily Chinese and they beat us to the punch in digging a hole all the way through the Earth! It's all so clear now. Digging a hole to China was the American invasion plan but the economic downturn slowed us down and they turned the whole thing around on us!

You don't have to look hard to see that Pico Rivera, California store was almost certainly targeted for union activity. I figure they have been watching things since the Black Friday protests and strikes and this is their way of putting some fear into the workers at stores form coast to coast.

So Expat, did the Greek government let you keep your slaves when you moved over there? Or did you have to buy new ones?

The people who come up with these conspiracy theories must have stumbled on a cold war stash of LSD (acid) the CIA was going to put in the Russians drinking water. They are very creative, first the red under ever bed conspiracy, thank you Senator Joe McCarthy, then UFOs and body probes, black helicopters, Russian and/or Chinese military bases in the US, now secret military camps in Wal-Mart's. Next it will be the Taliban in the Afghan navy submarine force launching suicide Muslim frogmen and women at Hoover Dam. On a side note I hear that the busiest Wal-Mart is located in Laredo Texas. I have been there and clerks are hard pressed to keep items on shelves. It's purchased, loaded in vans and goes directly into Mexico with a donation to the Mexican custom officers welfare fund upon crossing the bridge.

The ammunition shortage is a government conspiracy as they are buying it all up. Arm yourselves with weapons etc and be prepared. They will come against us and Walmart too eventually 😉

@Frank: Kept about ½ the old ones (they were already trained up) then bought about 30 new ones just for the grunt work.

Finding out its just Walmart union busting again. Not a surprise really. The company treats unionizing efforts like flesh eating bacteria, anywhere it appears it is quickly amputated from the corporate body to avoid its spread.
