Wal-Mart Gives Back - Walton Family Foundation

In 2004 the Walton Family Foundation handed out $117,020,891.68 in grants. Lots and lots of money to places in Arkansas of course, but who else got money?

American Enterprise Institute - the people who brought us Iraq War 2 and most of the GW Bush administration foreign policy.
Peel House Foundation - striving to make us more conservative.
Cato Institute - libertarians at odds with Repubs and Dems.
Conservative International Foundation - God only knows what they do.
Heritage Foundation - key architect and advocate of the Reagan Doctrine, I wonder if that included selling weapons to Iran?
Hoover Institute - an institute with well known antipathy to federal social welfare policies .
Hudson Institute - had Richard Pearle as a member, this was one of the strongest advocates for invading Iraq. And, indicted 'Scooter' Libby also a member and neocon Donald Kagan.
National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation - a foundation any anti-union person would love.
