TommyymmoT: Ivandrago: My local Whole Foods stopped selling bulk semolina so they can suck it.

You know who else used to eat semolina?


Why do I want to say Santorum?

This is how Mommy parks when taking Parker and Emma to pick up Annie's Organic Mac and Cheese.

jdoncbus2: It's pretty pathetic when the elitist, white liberal will choose his or her's market place based on the owner's political views. Seriously, you will gladly destroy our environment by driving your Prius an extra 15 miles so you can buy your "organic wares" at Trader Joe's instead of Whole Foods?

...Atlas may be shrugging but Mother Earth is balling her freaking eyes out. Jerks.


What if Trader Joe's is closer to home than Whole Foods?

/bet you didn't think of that

Wook: "Third law: When a first body exerts a force F1 on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force F2 = −F1 on the first body. This means that F1 and F2 are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction."

Election do in fact have consequences. Enjoy it, you asked for it.


We know, the consequences of listening to Republicans cry for another 4 years.

The ideal of capitalism as it has been embraced by money/power in this country is the incarnation of capitalism that brings them more money/power while wearing a mask of social and economic altruism.

Appearances matter if the status quo is to be maintained.

He lost sight of that briefly and now worries that the status quo for his slice of the pie may be endangered by letting his mask slip.

Some of us were never fooled by the mask, and gleefully watch him squirm.

nexxus: urbangirl: WhoopAssWayne: Obamacare and stripping our gun rights are both pretty much Fascism 101. All power to the state, none to the individual. And for his supporters out there, do you really think you're going to benefit from this system? Do you really think the idiots who end up in government are going to take care of all your needs while you sit around doing nothing, waiting for your government dole? To bad you can't ask the government slaves in North Korea or China how that's working out for them. A life of forced military conscription or factory work in exchange for a starving, hopeless, spartan existence doesn't sound like much of a deal to me. Yet you idiots gleefully cheer Obama when he strips rights and freedoms.

Aww, honey, you're not even entertaining. Bless your heart.

I guess I don't see what was wrong with what he said.

Let's break it down:
* 'Obamacare and stripping gunrights = Fascism.' Clear there's a debate here, so it's a reasonable statement relating his point of view.
* 'All power to the state, none to the individual.' The state is taking more power and you're left with less. QED.
* 'And for his supporters out there, do you really think you're going to benefit from this system?' Legitimate question.
* 'Do you really think the idiots who end up in government are going to take care of all your needs while you sit around doing nothing, waiting for your government dole?' I can't imagine anyone thinks the people who work in government aren't, by and large, idiots. Obamacare does increase 'dole'.
* 'To bad you can't ask the government slaves in North Korea or China how that's working out for them.' You can't, and it is a shame.
* 'A life of forced military conscription or factory work in exchange for a starving, hopeless, spartan existence doesn't sound like much of a deal to me.' This does happen, and it is too bad you can't talk to them.
* 'Yet you idiots gleefully cheer Obama when he strips rights and freedoms.' Maybe ...


Again, I don't see the problem. Care to respond point-by-point, hon?


no thanks. waaayyyy too much spittle in that little screed.
btw, i work in government. i'm intelligent and conscientious and i make a positive difference in people's lives. so i'm going back to work now. have fun, y'all.

Carn: nexxus: That his "cave" serves his long term interests. So you really shouldn't think it's a shame, he's being a good capitalist by your own terms.

Maybe his job/position was threatened. We all know you liberal pansies can't handle alternate viewpoints or have a rational discussion, despite your professions of openness and tolerance. We don't really know why he caved - can only speculate.

He certainly believes what he said originally.

Ad-hominem man, Ad-hominem man
Ad-hominem man meets Straw man
They don't fight
They are good friends
Ad-hominem man


Ad-hominem hominem hominem hominem hominem hominem pow right in the kisser

*not intended to be a factual statement

Idiots like this guy just randomly pick a country name and cite it, usually because they forget there's a thing called the internet that people can use to fact check them. Also because no reporter has the balls to challenge them and prove them wrong. Might hurt their feelings or something.

Carn: fuhfuhfuh: You would think that all of these stalwarts of capitalism would have learned by now that your personal views can have a negative impact on your bottom line if said views are derogatory to large portions of your customer base.

Kind of amusing that they all have to be reminded the hard way that they are not the only game in town, and that their services, while convenient, aren't exactly required.

It doesn't matter how large of your customer base it is. A good capitalist wouldn't say anything that could lose him even one customer. You might lose a customer or two across all stores, or more likely, you've probably got some stores in more liberal areas which will be much harder hit than others, possibly leading to layoffs or in extreme cases, store closures. Any way you slice it this proves his man isn't capable of leading a company and should be fired immediately.


A good capitalist will express himself if he feels that his long term interests are best served by doing so. In this case, he's right: 'your' wacko, liberal, bias toward government control (and yes, that *is* what it is..even if only 'partial' through 'a few' regulations - it *is* control) will eventually put him out of business or so far under the thumb of government that he might as well be out of business. Speaking out is the only rational thing to do and shows that he's a man of courage and integrity, unlike most of you liberal farkwits who blow whichever way the wind does. Shame he caved.

You clearly have no idea what capitalism is, or what you're doing to the world. God help us all.

I actually had a dentist tell me that Obamacare was full control of healthcare because "If government is involved even a little they are fully involved". So I asked him if he was then against government licensing of medical professionals. Yeah he really didn't have an answer for that.

Yeah... backpedal all you want, John Mackey. Perhaps in the future you will refrain from expressing your ridiculous opinions in public. I don't believe for a second that he didn't mean it. Bottom line is... he doesn't want to provide healthcare to his employees and thus may eat a bowl of dicks.

For several decades after Henry Ford, businessmen knew well enough not to spout off about politics (or religion) that might offend their customers.

It is amusing to watch them re-learn this lesson.
