My Take on the Whole Foods Boycott

So many on the Left have screamed back at protestors that they just want to have a reasonable debate and that the protestors and Republicans have no plan. John Mackey the co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods - the Left's favorite high-end grocery store - wrote an eminently reasonable op-ed in the WSJ challenging ObamaCare and laying out a list of perfectly sensible alternatives to the amorphous plan being floated for the transformation of healthcare. None of Mackey's suggestions involve any sort of bizarre right-wing thuggery or whatever else the Left tends to believe the Right, libertarian or otherwise, supports with fervor. So, in response to the argument (those still tend to have more than one side right?), the Left has decided that they cannot tolerate disagreenment with his Highness, and has launched a boycott of the food retailer.

Never let it be said that they are a tolerant bunch.
