Posted on 08/22/2009 2:23:21 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing
An online backlash is building against Whole Foods Market Inc. chief executive John Mackey, thanks to his op-ed column in The Wall Street Journal knocking President Barack Obama's proposed health care bill.

In the liberal media, barack obama is too big to fail.
Show Whole Foods your support by doing all of your shopping on one of their fine stores.
Though barely black, he is also too black to fail.
I will now begin shopping at our two brand new Whole Foods locations.
with feet of clay.
Why can’t leftists wake the F up and realize that they’re going to get screwed along with the evil conservatives if Obamacare becomes law. If they think Obama will give them a special exemption just because they supported and volunteered for him, they’re smoking crack.
Whole Foods Rocks!
Bread, cheeses, snacks, bakery, deli, seafood, flowers, fruits, veggies, super neat greeting cards, candies oh and did I mention the BREADS???? :)
Vote Obama’s healtcare bill and be sorry.
Shope Whole Foods and be content!!!
I have been shopping at Whole Foods since they had one little store.
The same reason they can’t figure out that Muslim terrorists disapprove of their lifestyle even more than that of Middle America.
How DARE anyone refuse to agree with Hussein!
I will make more of an effort to shop at Whole Foods now. :)
I’ll be at the East Liberty Whole Foods tomorrow in response.
I do like that store- always something interesting to eat there.
THe owner provides 100% of the cost of healthcare for 50,000 of his employees and this is the thanks he gets from the socialist communits left in this country. Like you said, we need to support Whole Foods to the hilt and let the owner know that Americans who care about America, appreciate him and the stand he is taking regarding Obama Deathcare.
Made a trip earlier today. Store was packed. I met a lady who said it was her first trip to the store. Reverse boycott?
I believe I am alive today because of my naturopath's suggested supplements and not the “rat poison” my doctor wanted me to take for the rest of my life.
Why does a little part of me think that The Goode Family’s One World market jokes had a little bit to do with him writing that article?

Although I have a (very lame) Super Stop & Shop less than 4 miles from where I live, I drove over 30 miles today to shop at Whole Foods (for the first time). I loved it, and while I can’t make that trip every week, I’ll certainly go back again. Aside from a great selection of cool stuff, the folks working there were a real treat. Happy and helpful.
I guess maybe it is because 45,000,000 have NO healthcare. This is a sizeable minority to be deeply worried about their future health. The important thing is that whatever system might finally be voted really be voluntary. FReepers and others are making this point loud and clear.
I’ve been taking supplements and using natural healing methods for 35 years, and haven’t really needed a doctor for 20 years. I am now a lively, healthy 71 year old.
What I don’t understand is why Whole Foods would not benefit from a plan which, if I understand part of it correctly, will encourage healthy life style (including diet) counseling and education. This should make them more money, not less. I too would like to know more about provisions in the plans that would include use of supplements and non AMA healers. It is really important that whatever we end up with health plan wise, doctors be compensated for educating their patients regarding nutrition, exercise, and aging issues. Of course this could be done by their employees for more time given at the same cost.
No, 45,000,000 have health care. They don’t have insurance. That’s what’s so dishonest about the debate. We have universal access to health care in this country, it’s the law. Even an illegal alien has health care.
