Thanks for the heads up. I don't know if we have Sprouts around here, but I'll check.

I saw a Subaru in front of me today in traffic. I just BET it was one of those damn liberals. Know how I know? They got it from a place called "Fairway" Subaru. Fair way. Obviously socialist and obviously an agenda by the left to subconsciously spread the socialist agenda!

Please, you people should stop picking on the OP.

The only thing he said wrong is "all left". Other than that, he made a valid point.

There are SOME People take politics way too personally and seriously, and some people like to lecture others without looking themselves in the mirror first. This has nothing to do with politics.

OP has no reasons to make up a story. Some of the posters here act like bullies. Gee.

And I can't believe you guys think this is a real story. Don't you guys ever notice posting histories?

Assuming it isn't, when someone is rude to you, do you immediately ask their political affiliation? And if not, how do you know? The same is true of your encounters in Bass Pro Shops. Do you ask the typical polite shopper who they voted for in the last election? Or do you follow them out to their car to read their bumper stickers?

This is all very puzzling.
The first in the pile of lies he stated was that he was moderate democrat. That post was everything wrong with today's political discourse. Your ideology determines your level of happiness.

Trying to be nice, I pointed her to the empty lane next to me by saying "I think she's open," as the cashier was a woman.

The customer wearing the Obama sticker looked at me with great indignation and said, "How date you assume somebody's gender without asking. You're so typical of white male privilege!" She then stormed off to another lane.

Folks, that's what the entire Left wants.
We can't even feel comfortable having a normal conversation and trying to my nice. I'm lucky I got off with merely a warning, and didn't get accused of sexual harassment.

Actually, it's what you imagine the entire left wants despite there being absolutely no basis in reality.

There are plenty of high-end groceries other than Whole Foods. Where I live now, I'd go to Tony's. Where I lived before I'd have headed to Santa Rosa Market, Oliver's, or one of many other specialty groceries. In southwest Ohio, I'd shop at Jungle Jim's or Dorothy Lane Market, which is probably closer to a Whole Foods-type store than JJ's.

You can get in and out of Sprouts in 10 minutes. We go for the bread and produce. Their prices are very competitive in Houston. Trader Joe's is here, but too far away. Lucky for us a great wine store just went in next to Sprouts.

Costco covers the rest.

I find it amusing that even our grocery stores have become partisan.

The entire left? No, absolutely not. I have friends who lean quite left that don't agree with the be super sensitive of potential transgenders. Hell I know transgenders who are infuriated with the unwanted attention.

That said we can't deny that there is a segment of the left that absolutely takes it over the top. Usually self haters or those consumed by an over developed sense of societal guilt.
