Good Week For Trader Joes

John Mackey, the CEO of Whole Foods is a full on climate denier. An issue that I assume that a large part of his customer base cares about.

It's not the first run towards libertarian paradise for Mackey, first it was labor practices and then his anti-health care screed in the Wall Street Journal.

I'm pretty sure that at this point the rest of Whole Foods would be pretty happy if John Mackey just went Galt.

Digby has a good post about Mackey this quote just to give you an idea of what he thinks about working people organizing:
In the early eighties, Mackey told a reporter, “The union is like having herpes. It doesn’t kill you, but it’s unpleasant and inconvenient, and it stops a lot of people from becoming your lover.”
