protest at whole foods

I was dissapointed when the CEO of Whole Foods wrote that piece in the WSJ against the public option of Obama's health plan. Many people have been boycotting shopping at Whole Foods since then.

Here's a video of a group in Oakland who protested with a song and dance routine. Regardless of where you stand on the issue, there is something so positive and uplifting by protesting with song and dance. Much better than yelling and fighting!

Could you imagine using this tactic to solve large global conflicts?

Awesome! I say you can protest whatever you want, as long as you do it with music and dancing!!

It's a shame that people are so infatuated with Obama being a savior to all with his health plan that they feel a need to protest against someone who provided intelligent and constructive critism of his plan. If people had actually read his article instead of reacting emotionally, they would have seen that the CEO of Whole Foods was providing useful suggestions to solve the health care issue and he also clearly states that he wants health care reform.
Music and dancing is always good though.
