I have a friend who is a supervisor at a Walmart in a Southern State. She swears by the giant retailer and passionately defends and brags about employees career opps and benefits. Walmart runs through her veins.

Personally, I once had the dubious distinction of not entering a Walmart. That bragging right was erased about five years ago when I had no choice but to go to Walmart on a Sunday in Salt Lake City, Utah. As someone who fears Malls and even A&P Supermarkets, going into the giant retailer was shockingly a scary experience. GASPs gave way to WHYs for a while. It was so huge. But items bought were quite reasonable, I thought.

Now fast fwd a couple years later. I have gone to Walmart on occasions to pick up a few groceries at 3 - 4 a.m because I am simply afraid of shoppers' slow meandering habits and long lines. I mean you know what you want. Go straight to items, cash out and exit. In comparison to Publix and errrr -- say Winn Dixie (where a cell phone was stolen from car in parking lot), Walmart seems quite expensive also. I think shoppers are lured in Walmart's isles by sales displays at each ends of isles. Once inside isles, prices for items can get extremely high.

HEY YO! Walmart's cult-like customers I would think are regular people who shop the warehouse size stores for bargains to save. It is safe to say a good portion of these shoppers work in factories that produce American products. Now these shoppers shop Walmart and purchase similar foreign made products to what they manufacture because prices are supposedly cheaper. With the bad economy and layoffs, I would think buying foreign products would help prompt layoffs and closing of factories because money spent is going overseas. "Inverted Paradox" man (and woman)! The great Dennis Alcapone would say -- "they milked the cow and kicked over the bucket."

Overall it seems Walmart has succeeded in giving their logo and image a slick upscaled makeover. And it seems the store is attracting higher income customers. There might be claims they are stocking more "Made In America" brands also. Now should "they" let Walmart inside NYC? SURE. It would be sort of NYC-kool to lock Walmart out but why not. Smaller versions of the mega stores are kool especially if they build in suppressed urban blighted areas and give peeps jobs plus bargain prices!! But NYC should also save the neighborhood supermarkets that are on the chopping blocks. And, maybe closed supermarkets could be reopened by Walmart. Send capital for the capitol idea. Check this! Could allowing NYC Supermarkets to close be a plan to make room for Walmart?

THE FREAKS COME OUT AT NIGHT. If you want to be entertained go to Walmart at 3 a.m. and watch the variety show inside stores and parking lots. A good time to see these shows is on weekends when folks are going home from clubs and parties. Quite certain if out-takes are compiled from Walmart's security cameras, they would make a hi-ratings TV show. Please send royalties and give credit for this idea!! Don't really wanna go Charlie Sheen.

Exclusive Waffle House Record LabelMEET ME AT THE WAFFLE HOUSE. WAFFLE HOUSE ROCKS!! Speaking of After Parties... The place I hang out on the raod after a concert is the WAFFLE HOUSE. What a fine eating establishment. Definitely miles ahead of What-A-Burgers. To the bewilderment of a few people, I have WAFFLE HOUSE cups and plates next to the fine china. So y'all think Kid Rock was the first to hang at WAFFLE HOUSE? No Sir! Been doing that a very long time. WAFFLE HOUSEs across the USA are the after party spots in a lot of towns. You can barely get in on weekends after 2 a.m. After giving a gutter punk sitting at the entrance some change -- drop some quarters in the Juke Box and dial up some Toby Keith, "Grill Operator" song - parody of Sade "Smooth Operator." or Colt Ford's "Meet Me At The Waffle House." (No-joke -- ask Jack Ruby, Jr. or Lumpy Nick from Wilmington - NC). There is nothing like saddling up to a center stool in front of the grill and order an egg white hamlet with mushrooms. (I wonder how the waffles taste?) As someone who also does not like restaurants Prefer Waffle House Cup and Saucer over Fine China any time.because I conjure up bad images of strangers I can't see preparing my food -- it is comforting knowing I can sit on my stool and watch the Grill Operators prepare my food to order. Plus there are alwayz kool grizzly characters hanging out at a WAFFLE HOUSE. You can learn a lot about local customs and going-ons from talking to Waffle-Housers.

Hey Waffle House -- I was sitting on the stool across from the grill with associate Jason Browning one morning when I noticed a good amount of wasted waffle batter. I asked Jason, collectively how much batter he thinks is wasted in a year at all locations? We both decieded it's a tidy sum. Just a thought -- why not feed hungry kids and the eldery with all that wastage.

Now - CHRIS ROCK's mom and sister who enter a Cracker Barrel a few years back in the South got pissed because they were not served on time. Cracker Barrel's staff was serving whites who came in after them. Now if mom and sis felt they were being dissed and snobbed because of dark pigmentation -- they should have gotten up and exit the restaurant while flippin' off the staff. Chris -- couldn't you f#@kin' warn your mom and sis not to enter any restaurant named "Cracker" Barrel!! C'mon now! They should have known better and went to a WAFFLE HOUSE man!! WARNING!! First rule of eating in a restaurant is never dis or talk down to waiters. Never piss-off peeps who are preparing and serving your food. As There Is Enough Food For Everyone. No One Should Go Hungry.a matter of fact if your waiter brings the wrong order, graciously accept. Then cradle the plate with both hands above head like Feed The Children logo. Then ask for blessings like HR or a Catholic Priest praying for God to bless the Holy Communion. Never piss off waiters!

Hello Glenn Beck. Where are you getting ideas to produce your show these days. That's right. Now I remember. You are riding coattails of Tea Baggers. U pilfered ideas and lines when you interviewed Al Sharpton about Chris Rock's mom and sister's Cracker Barrel situation on ur Headline News/CNN show then. (D.I.A's lyrics man.) And what is the big deal with Al Sharpton wearing a 18K Oyster Rolex. Just a bit too paranoid man! You are not a Republican dude!!
