In a socialist system, a socialist government will woo the proletarians with goodies such as free healthcare, free housing, and free education in order to consolidate all the wealth, only to cut the proles’ free goodies once all the wealth is consolidated.
Tue truth is; crony capitalist corporations such as Kroger do the same through various programs such as discount loyalty cards and senior discounts in order to sway customer away from other competing stores.
Now that Kroger – along with a select few – have contracted th supermarket business to only a few corporate conglomerates, the time has come for the crony capitalists at Kroger to do away with the customer goodies.
Sure they say that they’ve lowered the prices on over a thousand items, but what they don’t tell you is they raised the prices on a thousand other items.
Yeah they lowered the prices on GMO potato chips, but they raised the prices on organic fruits/vegetables and organic meat/dairy/poultry.
Oh, and $5.00 for a 24 pack of Simple Truth bottled water? Gimme a fucking break. You can buy a 24 pack of regular Kroger water for $2.50.
Lower prices my ass. Kroger is just a bunch of socialist crony capitalist fuckwits.
