A year without Fred Meyer

It was a little over a year ago that I stopped shopping at Fred Meyer. It was when I saw that Kroger, the parent company of that grocery store chain, had put that hideous Elaine Chao, wife of that even more hideous Kentucky slime ball, Mitch McConnell, on its board of directors. That was the end for me.

I shop at Safeway now. I'm sure they have their problems, too, but at least I'm not sending any money that couple's way. Kroger's annual revenue is about $137.9 billion. The average member of their board gets $300,000 a year. That works out to 0.000218 percent of the revenue stream.

And so for every $4,600 you don't spend at Fred Meyer, Chao and McConnell lose a penny.

Well worth the drive to a different store.


  1. It's actually closer for me to drive to Safeway. I'm with you all the way on this one. I even piss all over all the Fred Meyer ads on my FB feed. I make a point of asking whether they've dismissed Chao from their board, yet. I remind them that those who hire the corrupt will be deemed to be corrupt, and urge them to rid themselves of the Chaos!

  2. Whoa! This just in: Donny the Dumbshit agrees with you. Well, sorta. He at least knows that Chao is involved in corruption and outright calls her out on it! https://www.nationalreview.com/news/trump-calls-mcconnell-a-broken-down-hack-over-midterm-prediction/

    Then, there's Beau and his insights, where I picked up on this nugget: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bU8djnLlx_M

  3. Shop at Winco. It's employee owned and much cheaper than $$$afeway.
