Love America? Boycott Whole Foods

Why does the owner of Whole Foods use his money and influence to try and defeat healthcare? Is it because he's.....EVIL? Or is it because he thinks if people can afford his store then Blue Cross is a cakewalk. This video demonstrates how utterly awesome is this generation of young folks. I adore them as much as I loathe Whole Paycheck.

Amazing. Like the Yippees -- Abbie Hoffman lives. That guy reading a flyer at the end looks like Allen Taylor!

This is inspirational, this generation does have a future with people like this. Keep on!! I never really liked Whole Foods anyways, what a hypocrite!! Thanks, your blog is an interesting, informative, honest and humourous source.

They recently got into some trouble up here for Job discrimination. I always hated that place, and now they're giving me reasons. Thanks for the vid, girlfriend
