Whole Foods CEO: Obamacare Is 'Like Fascism'

Whole Foods CEO: Obamacare Is 'Like Fascism'

Commented Jan 16, 2013 at 22:08:32 in Business

“Go to Trader Joe's instead - they actually pay their employees rather well. I like their food and prices better anyway.”

CarloFernando on Jan 16, 2013 at 22:18:07

“I agree. I am not going back to WholeFoods until dinosaurs like their current CEO are out!.
I can not support a business that is against the well being of our society.”

“I agree, Whole Foods is over-rated and overpriced.”

“Trader Joe's already treats their employees very well. I'm sure Obamacare won't require anything more of TJ's - they already go up and beyond.”

“I feel like the majority of haters haven't even listened to the albums of these talented artists. Sure, T Swift kind of dilutes the talent, but the albums by fun., Frank Ocean, and the Black Keys are quality music - definitely different from anything in the past. They have a deeper and original sound that makes them worthy to be nominated. I would suggest to listen to the whole albums instead of just basing your opinion on the overplayed singles that the radio bashes us with.”

“Can we make another group, I Stand by Papa Johns Employees?”

floodmfx on Nov 16, 2012 at 12:23:19

“If Papa John had started an add campaign saying:

Our employees are our family. We are going to stand by them, and provide them with health-care. The cost of each pizza will go up $0.25. I hope you as our customer understand, and help us to help our employees.

Then, I would have become a loyal Papa John's customer. And Papa John could have pocketed $0.11 of the increase, because the healthcare only costs $0.14 per pizza.

But Papa John is the typical American business leader - heartless and greedy.”

“Well, many of them are generally liberal, which means that they would be ok being taxed more for the common good.”

“It's not Brangelina you have to worry about. Why are people so extreme when discussing issues? All people ever talk about is the uber rich or the pitifully poor. Your neighbors that make slightly over $250,000.00 are the ones you have to worry about. They will look at their lives and make a personal family decision that the sunshine and a beach are not worth getting fleeced.”

“On reddit the other day we found that Portman's page had been edited quite frequently, most significant of all were the edits that removed the "controversies" section, as well as other unfavorable facts about him. It seems like the GOP does not want the American people to know the full story behind its candidates.”

“You must know that the constitution prohibits the government from making laws that respect any established religion. Since being gay is seen as a normal variety of sexuality by all of the major scientific secular organizations, and it is only treated as a perversion in religion, you cannot make your argument as it pertains to civil law.

Numerous well put together studies also show that a gay couple heading a family are no more likely to be hindering to children than straight couples heading a family.

As for intimidation and prohibition of businesses, its has been going on for a long time. Cities actively put restrictions on strip clubs, prostitution, and other business practices that the majority of the community agree should be put in place in certain locations. It is definitely not illegal.”

“"You can't take away something that's never existed in the first place."

Blacks and women never had the right to own property or vote, or in your words their rights "never existed in the first place." But those rights were given to them in the name of equal rights for all.

However, I should rephrase my first comment to include "actively trying to prevent equal rights." And there are religious right groups actively trying every day to take away already state granted rights for gays to marry, adopt, etc.

Get out of your bubble and do some research.”

Daniel Bryant on Aug 6, 2012 at 11:22:58

“Right and Whites, in America never had the 'right' not to be overtaxed by the crown.

I'm in no bubble than you can define and two of us can burst together. Being gay is NOT a civil right. It is a sexual perversion. Let's talk like adults.

Perhaps you're unaware of the black ministers who have deftly characterized the president as Judas for selling out civil right's cause to gay marriage crowd?

What was actively engaged in, so you dis-remember recent history, is the intimidation and prohibition of a legitimate business from operating due to the political viewpoints of the owners.

That's illegal, anti-American behavior on the part of Boston D.C. Chicago and San Fransicko's mayors. The intolerance of gays and their enablers in the lib bastions above is what brought about Appreciation Day.

Blacks live all over the globe. Women too. You're the bubble-confined one, sir.”

“Making fun of something/someone you dont like and actively trying to take away rights from people you dont like are two different things, my friend.”

Daniel Bryant on Aug 6, 2012 at 10:58:03

“Has someone taken away your right to marry a tree?

You can't take away something that's never existed in the first place.

Gays, some, want to marry because they want to marry. That's intellectually honest. There are no 'rights' involved. No need to tax the limits or rationality with hollow arguments about 'equality.'

Gay and straight are 'different.' Stop insisting on false-equivalencies with respect to marriage.”
