Organic mangoes 99cents each …. but at what price?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Aravinda @ 2:09 pm

Yesterday as Amy Goodman was reporting the call for Boycott of Whole Foods, the camera was pointing to a pile of mangoes with a sign above them “Organic Mangoes 99 cents each.”   What a sale!

Why the boycott?  Because CEO John Mackey has come out strongly against government-funded health care, starting his Wall Street Journal Article with a quote from OF ALL PEOPLE Mrs. Thatcher, ridiculing socialism.

So in short, No right to health, says Whole Foods CEO: “Health care is a service that we all need, but just like food and shelter it is best provided through voluntary and mutually beneficial market exchanges. A careful reading of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution will not reveal any intrinsic right to health care, food or shelter. That’s because there isn’t any. This “right” has never existed in America.” – John Mackey, Wall Street Journal, 11 Aug 2009
