Most Americans would balk at soccer as a conversation piece, but Spain has proven to be one of the greatest teams to play the sport after two Euro wins and a World Cup. They spanked Italy with their “tiki taki” style of small passes that may influence how the sport is played in Europe and Africa. Brazil and all of South America play the style as well as Asian countries. The US team has shown signs of using the small pass, build up game and is the only team to beat Spain in a long time.
250,000,000 watched the Euro final, were you one of them?
Wal-Mart opened its first store 50 years ago on July 2nd. Sam Walton soon had over 20 stores in Arkansas with a goal to provide the cheapest prices for consumers. He paid his employees little, hired as few as possible, and fired anyone with just a whiff of union talk. See, some things never change. Wal-Mart is now the world’s largest corporation and is responsible for selling out American goods and jobs to China or anywhere else cheap stuff can be purchased in bulk and sold to Americans who have never met a business owner.
Do you shop at Wal-Mart? Do you believe their reputation for destroying main street America is deserved?
Occupy Protesters have returned to Philadelphia and have been filling up Franklin Square. The National Gathering is calling attention to banking greed, as well as the 26 members arrested on Sunday night. Some citizens have blamed the Occupy for defacing the Frank Rizzo mural with the word “facsista”. Frank Rizzo was a rough and tough mayor who used the police to keep political and civil power. A recent article about the Inquirer’s home told a story of how every page of an article in Hustler about Rizzo’s corrupt power in the 70s was torn out in Philadelphia. Our city is heating up for the 4th.
Are you happy that Occupy is back?
