Make sure to shop at Whole Foods

The left is trying to bocot them because the CEO spoke out againg heath care. Lets make sure the sales increase during the boycot.

I shop there about once a week, mostly just for the produce and meats, but its a real hippie hang out, hybrids in the parking lot, people bring their own bags, lot of tie-dyed shirts.

The liberals are stupid. If they look at what he has done for employees and charity, they should be happy to have someone like him on their side. Militant communists get involved and now the guy is the devil. Facts don't matter to American communists, socialists, democrats, liberals, or progressives (all the same).

That gives you an idea of how well Whole Foods is doing with their target demographic of hippies, tree huggers and earth nazis. Horrible. Generally those people are broke and bitter anyway so I am not suprised. I have never shopped there and don't really plan on it.

They really do have good food and hard to find items. Kind of like Trader Joes in California, except three times as expensive. I support the message but I'm too cheap to buy there.

Seriously, try Sprouts. They don't have everything that a Whole Foods has, but they've got a lot, and they are a ton cheaper. There is a Sprouts on MacArthur in Valley Ranch/Coppell. Not too far out of the way if you hit it up when you leve work. Market Street is good as well.


This is just what we've found, since going the whole organic and natural food route. I agree that WF is outrageous, but we only buy a few things there that can't be had elsewhere.

Don't kid yourself; all of these conservatives spouting their fear-mongering bologna about ObamaCare are just the same. I'm as against the health care movement as the next redneck, but doing it with fabrications and ignorance of the facts is just as bad as supporting it.

I'll second this. Sprouts has a lot of great stuff at decent prices.

The Whole Foods CEO is a liberal, too! I think it's quite amusing to sit back and watch the Democratic party completely fold, with nobody's help but their own!

He criticized Obama's plan, but offered some suggestions of his own, and just for disagreeing with the Messiah, he is ostracized by the left. Fucking amazing.
