Up is down, black is white...

...Wal-Mart is the new Whole Foods:

They are even talking about a boycott. And who knows? Maybe some will have to rethink shopping at Wal-Mart. Unions once attacked the retailer's labor and benefits policies, but Wal-Mart has become the nation's largest purveyor of organic products and recently espoused a position on health-care reform that is widely considered progressive.

What's wrong with this picture?

"A lot of people have been paying a premium for the Whole Foods brand for years," said Mark Rosenthal, a playwright living in Massachusetts who founded the Boycott Whole Foods group a few days ago. It has nearly 14,000 members. "A lot of people are sad to look at this corporation and see that it is just like any other, if not worse."

Um, pardon me, but what do you think the goal of a corporation actually is?

Here's a clue, you hippie dumbass: making money. I don't give a shit if the corporation also has goals about "sustainable" or "organic" this or that, they're in business to make *DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUHN* money. You know, so they can continue to open stores that have "sustainable" goals and sell "organic" crap to you and your hippie friends. Who, also, might get jobs in their stores, I might add.

Oh, who am I kidding? It's not like hippies want jobs.
