Most people who shop at Whole Foods are liberal yuppies.A libertarian with right-wing tendencies? Ayn Rand?
They have enough money to spend $9 on a pound of cherries.
They believe that shopping for groceries at Whole Foods instead of Safeway or Food Lion or Giant or Wal-Mart is the politically correct thing to do.
They probably believe that the President and CEO of Whole Foods is a liberal like themselves.
They of course would be wrong.
John Mackey is instead a libertarian with right-wing tendencies.
Mackey says that Milton Friedman is his hero.
He’s a devotee of Ayn Rand.
He’s opposed to national health insurance.
He’s a union buster.
Quick, Muffy, ask our undocumented Guatemalan nanny to fetch my smelling salts! (Por favor traerme el amoníaco...)
The man is making the right enemies, that's for sure.
Time for a trip to Whole Foods. I wonder if the heirloom tomatoes have arrived yet? Made the nicest salad with those last year...
