Two things I did not know about Costco

by on July 8, 2014

Two things I did not know about Costco:

1. They are second in size only to Wal-Mart. As of July 2012[update], it is the second largest retailer in the United States, the seventh largest retailer in the world and the largest membership warehouse club chain in the United States

2. The founder and retired CEO, Jim Sinegal, is a [MAJOR IDIOT]. Read below for details-

Sinegal spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 2012, which nominated President Obama for a second term. [CLEARLY A RED FLAG]

Sinegal, who retired as Costco CEO in January 2013, said Obama’s re-election would be better for businesses than a country led by Mitt Romney. [WHAT!!!!????]

American companies, he said, need “a president who takes the long view and makes the tough decisions,” said Sinegal. [NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!]

“That’s why I am here tonight supporting President Obama, a president making an economy built to last,” he said. Fuller said that in the 2012 campaign, Costco played “an important role in countering Walmart’s support of Republican candidates and issues while also proving an easy way for Obama to mention income inequality and smart job creation on the campaign trail.” [GUESS I’LL BE SPENDING MORE TIME SHOPPING AT WAL-MART]

In total, Costco has given $100,000 to Obama and another $100,000 to Priorities USA, the pro-Obama super PAC. [WHAT A COLOSSAL WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!!!!!!]

Sinegal was the author of an email blast sent out by the Obama campaign in July 2012. Obama also held a fundraiser at Sinegal’s house in Seattle, during which the incumbent president said “the story of Costco and everything that you guys have done I think is representative of what America is all about.” [MIGHT AS WELL HAVE BEEN A FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE CHOOM GANG]

Concerned individuals may contact Costco President and CEO W. Craig Jelinek by email or by calling (425) 313-8100 and/or Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President Richard A. Galanti <a href="mailto:rgalanti or by calling (425) 313-8100. [BETTER YET, DON'T SHOP AT COSTCO]
