    It definitely has a tinfoil hat ring to it, but found the whole series of articles kinda interesting never the less.

    That's the problem with the really good conspiracies. They have a grain of truth and when presented right lead you down a really, REALLY twisted rabbit hole. On their own each is either ridiculous, fantastic or utterly ordinary. You get to the end though and wham, you are putting everything you own in a faraday cage, renting a u-haul you have no intention of returning and maxing out your credit card at wal-mart/costco/sam's club.

    I would put a lot more Credit, in the Story, that Wall-Mart was closing the Stores, where the Employees were organizing Union Votes... than anything else...

    Here is the more plausible reason for Wally World shut downs.......
    Walmart denies claims it targeted wage protestors with store closings - Yahoo Finance

    And if you believe that, then you believe Uncle Billy Clinton, when he testified Under Oath, while he was Mr Pres.....

    I really doubt it has anything to do with Jade Helm, too. Interesting topic, nonetheless. The wage protests and threat of a union rings more likely.

    This caught my attention too, The Locations were slightly suspicious.
    When Katrina hit us, Wal-Mart parking lot was the dist. center for MRE's and Water.

    Probably because the Walmart was a well known destination with ample parking.

    As for the closings, my thinking is it's because of the Union activity at those stores. Close the stores for six months, and those union sympathizing employees will have to find work somewhere else. Then reopen with fresh people.

    I laughed my butt off when Twinkie shut the doors on those fricken' Extortionist Union guys. I told my wife that's what they should do and couldn't believe it when they did.
    Some of those truck drivers were making $100,000 a year with their benefits, How many Twinkies can you sell?
    All those people were looking for a job without all that fluff a day later![LMAO]

    I thought the plumbing problems in different stores/ different states was fishy. Now this union thing is making news. Makes sense, always seems to boil down to money.

    Well, take this from personal experience with the Super center that was shut down in Brandon Fl. When I lived in Tampa, of all the Walmart's that I went to, this one had to have the least amount of customers. Which is why I chose the Brandon location to shop at. I never spent any time in a line at all. I was in and out of this particular Walmart at the minimum of 15 minutes.

    The faster I can get away from the Walmartians the better.

    I like Walmart. I go to a nice one like @RouteClearence When you find a clean and decent super center it is worth the trip. As for the Jade Helm/ Wal Mart/storage containers. I can't see business forfeiting profits to help gov't training.

    People in the Livingston, TX. area said there are about 15 cars in the walmart parking lot and it looked like showers were being installed in the building.

    That would make sense, weather or not it was truly needed. It IS what they claimed was needed, it gives their stated motive credence, and would still be much cheaper than the unpaid workforce that was in place. In addition. It would be tax deductable as a business investment, or building expense.
    From a construction point of view, it is much easier to work without other people underfoot and at risk, so ALL repairs needed SHOULD be done while the store is closed.

    Interesting development, but I still don't think it's a Jade Helm related issue...
