Currently the No's are 69%. Let's see if we can break 90%.
Here's an easy to click on link.
So, if the purpose of a company is to make money; how much money is generated when the company takes a political side?
Well the boycott seems to have backfired.
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
Now @ 85% no.
75% no, but ya can’t fix stupid:
“In case you missed it, Whole Foods CEO John Mackey wrote a ridiculous editorial in the Wall Street Journal against Obamas health care reform effort. Mackey basically says health care and even food and shelter are commodities people shouldnt feel they have a right to”
“Let’s see if we can break 90%.”
Getting close, 87% NO when I voted
Fox News Sunday reported this morning that the Tea Party groups are organizing the boycott of Whole Foods!
I never shopped there anyway
I don’t know 1%
Who are these don’t know?
89% just now, 11:27 AM Mountain time!
No, they're organizing buycotts.
Nah, don’t think it backfired so much as amounted to free advertizing for Whole Earth Foods. I think the store got some Conservative shoppers going there, just to check it out.
Liberals are cowards, typically uninformed and without a will. To ask them to give up a whole-food breakfast cereal to defend a liberal cause is asking too much. They have no problem demanding you give up meat ... but to ask them to shop elsewhere - that is just too much effort.
The liberals I know, are so self-centered, that the mere idea of self-sacrifice in order to help someone else is as alien to them as asking them to respect the country that enables them to enjoy the freedoms they so love to abuse. Liberals have no problem using the law, or courts to order you to give money to those who are too lazy to work; but are ‘above’ giving to charity, be it a church, or other fundraiser.
That’s why the boycott didn’t work. IMHO.
It’s a BUYcott Fox ~ get it right!
Thanks La Lydia ~ I can’t believe they’d get it so wrong.
I wish these poll answers would be phrased like “will you be shopping more at Whole Foods” or “will you be shopping less at Whole Foods” my answer would definitely be MORE!!! Anybody else notice how Whole Foods Stock price has been going UP?
This is great! Thanks.. have already reposted. Looks like she’s going to be awfully disappointed in the results now isn’t she.
I LOVE Whole Foods for my fruits and veggies. They are a bit more expensive but they are worth it! Go Whole Foods!
You got your wish. 91% right now.
72% now. Remember, vote early and often.
