Liberals Eat Here.
Conservatives Eat There.

Wall Street Journal, by Reid J. Epstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/2/2014 3:29:51 PM

Can you tell a person’s politics based on where they buy their groceries or hamburger? In the their front page story Thursday about how demographic shifts in suburbs are changing the politics of America, the Journal’s Elizabeth Williamson and Dante Chinni write about how the arrival of restaurants like P.F. Chang’s and Chipotle are telltale signs that conservative exurbs are turning liberal. Experian Marketing Services does a rolling survey of thousands of people who patronize restaurants and retail establishments to determine, among other things, the politics of stores’ customers. The survey assigns liberal and conservative scores to different establishments based

I don´t see a whole lot of difference really except liberals flock to whatever restaurant chain is "hot" at the time. Places like P.F. Changs will eventually lose a lot of their appeal and the lofos will flock to the next popular place where they think they are eating "above" what the rest of the country eats. I am waiting for some place called Sriracha Grill to open. That seems to be the condiment of the day like chipotle once was.

This would only be meaningful if a firm´s management made known their political bias and then we, as intelligent consumers, could act on that knowledge. Otherwise, what´s the point?

A very general theme is in the data:
Liberals will spend a lot more money because something is trendy.
Conservatives want something that as a good value.
A nickname for Whole Foods around here is "Whole Paycheck".

What absolute rubbish!

First of all, they admit:

There are clearly regional biases here. The supermarket chain Harris Teeter scores 113 on the conservative index, probably because its stores are predominately located in the Southeast. Oregon-based supermarket Fred Meyer, which is owned by Kroger and has stores in the Pacific Northwest, scores 154 on the liberal index.

Duh.

And then there is the business of polling the political preferences of the customers.

Huh?

The WSJ just joined USA Today and the other junque media.

Does ideology dictate what we eat? For some liberals I know, diet is akin to virtue. To eat healthy is to be morally superior to those who do not. I don´t know of any conservatives who think this way. However, I do know of conservatives who relish eating food that is not considered healthy and mock those who have a more healthy diet. That said, not all conservatives nor all liberals think in these terms. Yet it is an interesting topic. Conservatives are more libertarian in terms of their eating habits - live and let live. Liberals are more interventionist and want to control how others eat. This is more of how I see the ideological eating spectrum.

Liberals live in urban areas where incomes are higher and they can afford to waste their money on overpriced vegetables etc. I like to shop at Trader Joes, and Wegmans, they just aren´t available where I live. Many of the "liberal" grocery stores are only in the north and not available except in major cities in the south like Atlanta. It doesn´t mean conservatives wouldn´t shop there if they were available.
My hometown has mostly Kroger, a few Food Lions and one Fresh Market. Not MY choice.

Wonder why they didn´t rate "farm towns", probably totally different than what their survey shows.

It may be nice to favor a business owned by a Liberal or a Conservative, but sometimes you don´t get a choice in small towns. On the Conservative side we do have a Papa Johns and a Chic-Fil-A. I have no idea about the ownership of other places.

The restaurants here are few and not on this list. We do have many of the fast food stores. As for grocery it is Walmart, Kroger and one local owned independent store, which competition helps to keep prices reasonable. But then our population is 25,000 (give or take() for the whole county.

I shop at Whole Foods quite often - the things I buy are better quality there generally than anything else around here, though Trader Joe´s is less expensive and I shop there too. But I´m one of those people who tends to shop the store´s perimeter and I try (not always successfully) to eat healthily as I get older. But I always have an urge to stand in the aisle and shout "I voted Republican the last election and I´m going to do it again" so that when I get kicked out for my politics I can record the whole thing and send it to the news.

But I tend to shop there when it opens at 8AM when it´s empty because the other shoppers and their political stickers often freak me out too much.

The Bay State is being asked by President Obama to shelter some of the tens of thousands of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children spilling over the nation’s southern borders, Gov. Deval Patrick revealed today. “We have been asked by the administration ... to consider whether we can shelter some number of unaccompanied minors and we’re trying to sort out what that number is,” Patrick told reporters. “We’re trying to sort out about what our capacities are, what the circumstances would be in the case of unaccompanied minors at the border it would be in some sort of secure facility,” Patrick added. “It’s

Via the Daily Caller, an elegant opening statement from today’s House Rules Committee hearing on Boehner’s separation-of-powers lawsuit. You’ve heard him make this argument before but he’s getting more apocalyptic with each appearance before Congress — and who can blame him? The last time he testified, Obama wasn’t babbling to activists about amnestizing five million illegals with a stroke of his pen. Today Turley calls O’s rhetoric about unilateral action “extreme” and warns the committee that Congress will effectively self-destruct if the executive is allowed to do what he wants whenever there’s gridlock.

It’s one thing to take care of illegal immigrants who come to America and are under the age of 18 (before sending them back), and it’s another to burn through taxpayer money rolling out the red carpet. From the Gateway Pundit: The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens. That resort hotel? The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites in Weslaco, Texas – a generously acommodated resort with such amenities as an outdoor swimming pool (pictured above).

Pentagon Loses Many Cars

Car theft is a major problem in America, but most people would agree that it’s hard to lose a car. As an investigation by the Daily Beast has learned, however, the Pentagon has somehow lost multiple cars belonging to American servicemen and women. Here’s how it happens: The Pentagon often reassigns their soldiers to different stations throughout the world, and helps their families defray the financial costs of moving — including the cost of shipping their cars. For decades, the Pentagon contracted this service out to American Auto Logistics (AAL), but replaced them this summer with a company called International

In 2012, I alerted the federal government to the growing problem of unaccompanied minors making the treacherous journey across Mexico to reach the United States. At that point the minors could annually be numbered in the hundreds or thousands. In recent months, tens of thousands of children have come across the border and are now housed in federal facilities across the U.S., the result of failed federal policies and Washington´s indifference to securing the border. I visited one of these facilities in June and saw these children, frightened and alone, who left their homes and families, survived a harrowing trip, and

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
