Whole Foods CEO looking forward to being called "crazy John" after years of having right-wing opinions "muzzled"

Exactly. Capitalist whining about The Invisible Hand™ while it’s slapping him upside the head.


Something something frozen peaches at Whole Foods


Now that it belongs to Amazon.com, Whole Foods will be a lot more sensitive to the real needs of American consumers./s


Oh oh, I know!

Good frozen peaches are cheaper just about anywhere besides Whole Foods.

Or to be less literal,

This guy’s complaining about his peach getting frozen at. . . Whole Foods!?


And his Supply Side economics.


This guy’s been a known asshat for ages now, he must not have been muzzled very tightly.

You know, I’m a capitalist at heart, and I believe in liberty and capitalism," he said. "Those are my twin values. And I feel like, you know, with the way freedom of speech is today, the movement on gun control, a lot of the liberties that I’ve taken for granted most of my life, I think, are under threat.

Also, quotes like these convince me that their philosophic and political positions were chosen by virtue of requiring the least reading.


He is correct, young people do not want to work. Why would they? If people wanted to work it wouldn’t be necessary to pay them.

(When people say that, i often wonder, Hmm, would you still do it if you didn’t HAVE to work?)


“They’re taking over everything. It looks like they’ve taken over a lot of the corporations.”

Now explain how “They” can do that without capitalism and “The Market”?

It would seem to me that the invisible hand of the market is working it’s “magic” to work out better for people who are less shitty individuals than John and his ilk.


Right? This dude is a self proclaimed lover of capitalism, but also hates that young people influence capitalism with their so called “wokeness”. He’s not a capitalist at all, he really just wants to be an oligarch in a fascist state.


Maybe he and Elon can commiserate about building a successful product and selling it to people they hate.


But the main market for Elon’s shitty cars are rich, dumb, entitled white dudes like him?


Is ‘Crazy John’ aware of how much experience the ‘woke’ kids these days have with just waiting for reactionary old people to age out?

He sounds like he expects some sort of thrilling validation when The Man is no longer keeping him from saying his piece, rather than the collective indifference of everyone who already knows how to tune out some fox-addled irritant.


I’m not even young and I don’t want to work.


Out here in the Bay area also; folks often refer to it just as Whole Paycheck.

Also not a store I give my dollars to; for that and many other good reasons.

Out here in my neck o’ thee woods too. :wink:


At least he has the clarity to recognize that despite the vocal rabid and increasingly radicalized minority he identifies with, people like him are on the way out.

Rich old white man worries about his rights being taken away.

From one old white guy to another, fuck right off my man.


Woah, that puts your avatar in a new light! :smile:


As a Canadian used to animal welfare standards north of the border, the one thing WF has going for it is it happens to be one of the few stores here that sells meat and seafood that adheres to some sort of animal treatment guidelines (GAP) for 100% of the meat sold in their stores. While it’s one thing to track down local butchers for raw meat products, it’s one of the few stores that stand by their standards for everything they sell in the store. None of the other big stores here in Orlando - Publix, Winn-Dixie, Kroger, TJ - do that. So we end up having to shop in two different places - WF for meat, the others for everything else.

It seems like such a missed opportunity to me. I doubt I’m not only one who would choose to shop at a store that puts a focus on animal welfare, but of course, taking shelf space for that from a traditional store while also making sure there are products that people with limited means can afford seems to be a non-starter.
