Michelle Obama is just like you

First lady Michelle Obama, wearing a hat and sunglasses, made a quick dash to her neighborhood Target to pick up a few common household items. Of course there’s nothing common about Michelle Obama, who was shadowed by a Secret Service agent pretending to be a shopper (the man standing behind her). Mrs. Obama was accompanied by her personal assistant (the LSLH chick) who carried her bags and checked messages on both of Mrs. Obama’s cell phones.

First Lady communications director Kristina Schake explained, “It is not uncommon for the First Lady to slip out to run an errand, eat at a local restaurant or otherwise enjoy the city outside the White House gates.”

    ************************

    I know right!!! I LOVE Target and was walking though one and there was the Missoni pump (black suede with a stripe of the design) sitting there in my size!! I tried it on and it fit like a glove. The entire collection is not for me, but I do like some of it. BTW if you use your Target credit card you get an extra 5% off of all purchases, which adds up if you go there a lot :yes:

    IF I go to Walmart its always the ones out in the burbs…never the ones in the city. My lil sister used to work at Walmart in Dallas and she always would call me about the stories of people stealing, fighting, some lady giving birth. Too much going on.

    But Walmart has a soft spot in my heart. Sometimes Target can be a bit expensive. And we dont have any other choice but to make a trip to WallyWorld!!!!

    If you watch Capitalism and The High Cost of Low Prices, it will really open your eyes about Wal-Mart. They take insurance policies on their employees so when they die they still don’t loose money. This one lady died and they gave the family member the finger while they collected 19K. Good watch, but I love watching docs about how shiesty businesses are.

    It hurts me to read the posts here complaining about other black people when the real enemy is Wal Mart itself. There are a lot of reasons not to shop there but the fact that other poor people shop there is not one of them.

    I don’t shop at walmart not because i’m trying to avoid my people because they don’t abide by my standard of dress and/or decorum. I don’t shop at wal mart because this corporation treats it’s employees and supplier like dirt.

    Did you know wal mart is the company with the most employees STILL on some form of government assistance ie healthcare, foodstamps, housing assistance etc due to low wages? That’s just Corporate Welfare they profit by not paying their employees a living wage and taxpayers like ourselves pick up the difference.

    Only a company of their size can buy direct from manufacturers, cutting out the distributor. They buy so cheaply they can resell to other stores at cheaper than wholesale. Thus they can ruin the competition through PREDATORY PRICING.

    Wal-Mart tells the record industry what they don’t like, and the industry produces special “clean” versions for sale by Wal-Mart – versions which are then resold to other retailers. Not to defend obscenity, but look who’s deciding what’s obscene? Is Wal-Mart your daddy? They are the biggest music retailer in the country – in many places, the only music retailer. Wal-Mart has become the W-chip, blocking or altering album covers and lyrics – not on your home television, but at the global level. Such power is never restricted to obscenity – it always leads to wider controls. They cause musicians to censor themselves in advance. Get Wal-Mart out of the censorship business!

    Let not forget Dukes vs. Wal-Mart the infamous pay disparity lawsuit. They bought and paid for the supreme court so they ruled against the plaintiffs.

    I agree with everybody about Walmart. What’s the difference between a strip mall in the hood and Walmart? NOTHING. It’s just a glorified strip mall: check cashing, nail shop, alcohol & guns, and better signage. They will soon add a pawn center, mark my words, lol.
