Still Shopping at Whole Foods? - STOP



The CEO of Whole Foods Market said President Obama's healthcare law is more like "fascism" than "socialism," a parallel he drew in 2009, to some backlash.

“The union is like having herpes. It doesn’t kill you, but it’s unpleasant and inconvenient, and it stops a lot of people from becoming your lover.”

(That quote, to Mackey’s dismay, won’t go away, either.) His disdain for contemporary unionism is ideological, as well as self-serving. Like many who have come before, he says that it was only when he started a business—when he had to meet payroll and deal with government red tape—that his political and economic views, fed on readings of Friedman, Rand, and the Austrians, veered to the right


2009
He’s a union buster.
He believes that corporations should not be criminally prosecuted for their crimes.
He has just launched a campaign to defeat a single payer national health insurance system.
And he’s the CEO of Whole Foods.

Primo hangout of liberal Democratic yuppies.

“We are all responsible for our own lives and our own health,” Mackey wrote yesterday in the Wall Street Journal. “We should take that responsibility very seriously and use our freedom to make wise lifestyle choices that will protect our health. Doing so will enrich our lives and will help create a vibrant and sustainable American society.”

THEN THE NEXT DAY

And on Friday Mackey — a longtime denier of manmade climate change — told Mother Jones that warming temperatures is “not necessarily bad”:

    Contrary to what has been written about me I am not a “climate-change skeptic.” Climate change is clearly occurring, and based on what I have read global temperatures have increased about 1.5 degrees Celsius over the past 150 years.

    We’ve been in a gradual warming trend since the ending of the “Little Ice Age” in about 1870, and climate change is perfectly natural and not necessarily bad.




A Whole Foods on the Upper West Side is under fire after the supermarket placed a chicken advertisement featuring the face of President Barack Obama.

NBC reports the ad was originally placed outside the Columbus Avenue and 97th Street location to promote a sale of organic chicken.

A resident voiced his concerns over what he said was a racist display, and the store removed the advertisement.

A Whole Foods spokesman said the store chucked the drawing "once it was brought to our attention by a shopper that it may be perceived as offensive."
