The Waltons' Family Fortune is $128.1 Billion and Climbing

Not the Made-For-TV Waltons:
Alice Walton is the youngest child of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton. With her two surviving siblings and the estate of her late brother, the Walton heirs control almost 49 percent of the world's largest retailer. Walton owns about 410 million shares. She gifted her collection of American art to her Arkansas museum, Crystal Bridges, which opened in 2011. Bloomberg Billionaires: Today’s ranking of the world’s richest people

Hillary Clinton was on the board of directors of Wal-Mart, the Waltons love the democrats.

And now you know why Walmart is a favorite hate target of the leftists. They are trying to capture the heirs and their money, by shaming them, making them feel guilty, and promising them indulgences if they would only contribute to noble progressive causes.

Notice how the Usurper's permanent organizaing shakedown organization so assiduously courts Walmart, invites them to all their pleas for money in exchange for "unprecedented access". Notice that they suggesting teaming with Walmart to get Walmart to support their firerams control proposals in exchange for shutting down Walmart's competitors.

The third generation of Waltons will be full-progressive trustafarians, dispensing their ill-gotten loot to every leftist cause that comes a-begging, to atone for their horrible sins of unearned wealth stolen from the people.

John, the Walton's do contribute to liberal causes. You don't understand, liberals don't hate the rich, they are the rich.

They want to make sure everyone else stays down where they belong. If they have to pay a little more to never see a poor person they don't mind.

Think about every liberal cause. Once someone reaches a certain income they are taxed more to keep them down. They are always willing to fund things as long as those things are kept away from them. They are willing to pay to move welfare rolls to other counties. If you think about every liberal plan it is designed to make sure the lower classes stay away from wealthy liberals.

Well, if the Waltons are such nice people, why don't they get rid of the cash registers and let everybody have the merchandise for free? That would only be fair.

And besides, it might save one child.
