Walmart to invest $250 billions in American manufacturing

At least that's what I think their Daytona 500 commercials were telling me...

Oh, maybe that's not quite the same as "sourcing" $250 billions of their purchases from American manufacturers, which may be what they actually promised.

The reason I'm not 100% clear on what that Walmart commercial promised was  because I was totally taken aback by the soundtrack.

Yes, that was Rush. Quintessential hard-rock nerd band.

Walmart has bought the rights to "Working Man."

Buying the rights is probably a lot easier than hiring an American working man and paying him a decent wage.

All cynicism aside, at least working people and making stuff in America are on the radar again.
