You bit the hand that fed the corporate bottom line.
What comes around, goes around; eat shit you corporate swine!
Food stamps have been cut and no jobs are to be found,
with none to feed your greed, your stock will hit the ground.
You need a human shopper that no robot can replace,
a two-way street it is and you thought you held the ace.
Get ready for a fall, motherfuckers that you are.
And when you bottom out, that fall will leave a scar!

…and the corporations think that they hold all the trump cards. Well…when people have no money to spend, just what the hell did they think would happen? Exactly what IS happening!
fourth-quarter earnings worse than expected
Battered big-box stores
Target has been suffering (I wonder why, like hell I do!)
Macy’s (M -1.32%) saw sales grow by low single digits in 2014 and in 2014, for instance. And don’t even get me started on Sears (SHLD -0.36%) or JC Penney (JCP +2.60%).
Best Buy had another rough quarter after an ugly holiday sales report.
…and the writer of this article thinks that this ‘bad’ news for stores has everything to do with online shopping as opposed to ‘brick and mortar’ shopping. Somehow, I don’t think that’s it. The simple fact is that people are not shopping because they are broke and the safety net has been gutted. The unemployed have given up and the homeless certainly ain’t shopping. So, they can fool themselves until hell freezes over, but the reality is that between the corporate owned asses called politicians and Wall Street, they’ve managed to cause their own downward spiral. And far as I am concerned, they can just eat shit!
