I recently bought a bottle of Oakridge Organic Orchards Apple Cider at the Food Front Co-op store in NW Portland and it tasted like ass...which is bad because normally it tastes great AND is made just across the river in White Salmon, WA. Then I hear on the radio some commercial spots from Zupan's Grocery Store (that neo-capitalist yuppie dive of the elite and wannabe elite alike) that advertise that 'not shopping at Zupans could be a risk because "quality may vary"'.
Now, I just may be paranoid, but is this a coordinated campaign by the "invisible yuppie drove" to drive the Co-op out of business? Is the fix in? And why does the Co-op now have a display case advertising bee products (when bee production is horrendously cruel)?
The battle for 24th street may be done (there are TWO Starbucks Coffee stores there plus a Gap plus Zupans plus enough "ubber-yuppie" corporations to make you retch till Bush leaves office). Will they take our food supplies as well? Wish I knew.
