Many of you have an idea in your mind that Wal-Mart’s closures, along with the Jade Helm military operations are part of some grand scheme to take over the United States through Martial Law and through FEMA death-camps. While I will not totally disagree with the idea of our government wanting to pull the wool over our eyes and do something fanatical to get us to become obedient, I’m going to have to shed some light on why this simply is not the case with regard to the Wal-Mart closures.
About 30 or 40 years ago, when Wal-Mart first started taking off, the military knew they had something useful. They had a business that required large buildings and that would build them all across the United States. The US military also begin realizing how utterly important logistics were for military efficiency, especially within the confines of the US border. So they sat down with Sam Walton and worked out some kind of deal – strategic placement of Wal-Marts.
I’m not going to say that every single Wal-Mart was strategically placed by the US government, because this would be false — what I am saying is that MANY of them were created for this purpose. If you go into any town of half-way decent size, you’re going to see a Wal-Mart. They’re everywhere. And how does a company as big as Wal-Mart fill all of those stores without having a lot of overstock? Logistics technology.
Captain Vernon L. Beatty Jr. is a Quartermaster in the military and he has written at length of the benefits of Wal-Mart’s logistics program being a central theme to our military. To those of you not familiar with military titles, a Quartermaster is a corp in the military that focuses on equipment – both functionality and availability. Cpt. Beatty was actually trained in a Wal-Mart Distribution Center, and wrote an article about its importance. That article is titled “You Gonna be a Greeter?”
Check out this document, published by the military in 1995. If you go to page 18 of the actual document (page 20 of the PDF file), you will read about the understanding our military has of the importance of logistics, when they came to realize the need for such things, and how important it will be in the future to mimic Wal-Mart’s logistical abilities. Thus the reason our military sends its Quartermaster trainees to Wal-Mart distribution centers for training.
So here we have clear and undeniable evidence of the link between Wal-Mart and the logistical needs of our military men and women. For the record, I do not agree with the military conducting a drill like Jade Helm, and I do believe the drill has other purposes than what has been described. But, to be fair to the parties involved, I think we must acknowledge that Wal-Mart will be used for nothing more than supply-trains for our military personnel. In fact, I fully applaud this ingenious idea for logistics in the event of an invasion of our country. Now, we should be able to put the Wal-Mart closures to rest and focus on the real threat – martial law.
