More Crazy From The Whole Foods CEO

We already know that Whole Foods CEO John Mackey thinks that global warming is a hoax and that Americans have no inherent right to health care. The latest bit of crazy from crazy Mackey’s crazy mind is a new employee discount policy. If you have lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and a lower BMI (Body Mass Index), you get a bigger discount. Aside from the fact that those three factors, while important, are not necessarily predictive of good health, there’s Mackey’s “fatties shouldn’t work here” message. The planned in-house screenings should be a riot. Participation is voluntary, just in case you don’t want corporate all up in your business. But then you don’t get the steeper discount on that $2 banana.
