lululemon part of a right wing plot to control your ass

lululemon, maker of $98 pajama pants worn in public by adult women around the world, portrays itself as more than just a money-making venture. It has always come across to me as vaguely lefty, possibly because yoga is kind of a lefty hippy thing as practiced on the West Coast, but also because its manifesto includes standard leftist anti-Western medicine babble ("Stress is related to 99% of all illness"--Uh, does that include, like, AIDS, and malaria?) and golden rule derived environmentalism ("What we do to the earth we do to ourselves"). (It also spells its name in lowercase.) However, I have recently uncovered a plot which leads me to believe that lulu may if fact be the burning spear point of a right-wing takeover of the world's asses.
