GoodyearPimp: How much energy can you create by backpedaling so furiously?
sigdiamond2000: Is "everyone who shops at Whole Foods is a liberal" the new "everyone who has a hobby is a hipster?"
JohnnyC: 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.
Bladel: 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.
Ivandrago: My local Whole Foods stopped selling bulk semolina so they can suck it.
urbangirl: This is twice now he's made a similar comment. I believe he used the word "socialism" the first time. So yes, he is serious.
Rihlsul: It's interesting, too, because reading the whole quote, he's not wrong that it's a fascist policy...
Magorn: sigdiamond2000: Is "everyone who shops at Whole Foods is a liberal" the new "everyone who has a hobby is a hipster?"Given that as far as I've been aware of it, Whole Food's nickname has always been "whole paycheck" I think it's target demographic is less liberal hippies and more "self-righteous narcissists who drive BMWS and bored trophy wife soccer moms in Lincoln Navigators", you know the folks who nodded thier heads and muttered "so true" when they heard Romney's infamous 47% remarksREAL hippies know where the local farmer's market is or have a subscription to a CSA
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.
TommyymmoT: Ivandrago: My local Whole Foods stopped selling bulk semolina so they can suck it.You know who else used to eat semolina?
ha-ha-guy: What a farking moron, a large portion of his customers shop there and pay higher prices for two reasons:1. The food selection, especially meat and seafood.2. The belief the workers aren't treated like subhuman serfs al al Walmart(3. The high prices keep the riffraff out.)
Corvus: He said he was trying to describe "government-controlled health care," or "the opposite of free-enterprise capitalism."That's a lie. It's not "government controlled". Having some regulations is not "government controlled" does he believe doctors need to be licensed is "fascism" too? Because according to him that's "government control" also. I wish some reporter would actually grow a pair and call people out how make these retarded statements.
Rihlsul: GoodyearPimp: How much energy can you create by backpedaling so furiously?It's interesting, too, because reading the whole quote, he's not wrong that it's a fascist policy, which is vastly different from spouting off about "Obongos gonna takes mah monies, that's facisms!". Sad when you can't use the right terms to discuss governance without invoking a shiatstorm.
Voiceofreason01: Rihlsul: It's interesting, too, because reading the whole quote, he's not wrong that it's a fascist policy...It's a big stretch./he's wrong that it's "fascism"
Guuberre: Well, bless his heart. This tree-hugging liberal shops at Trader Joe's, so he can bite my butt anyway.
Rapmaster2000: This is how Mommy parks when taking Parker and Emma to pick up Annie's Organic Mac and Cheese.Typical lib. Right next to the lib with the Jesus fish.
