Clemens Food Group/ Hatfield Meats: “Integrity, Ethics, and Stewardship”.
Glory to God Automotive.
That was the most annoying website.
Any eighth grader knows infamous is reserved for heinous crime perpetrators.
HEB is a very good company.
That, and the Gaystapo.
Haven’t bought a Tyson product since the revelation of its ties with Clinton. Religious? I think not.
“Infamous” is one of the most annoyingly mis-used words. It seems to happen more and more frequently. Most Americans are borderline illiterate.
A private company that closes on Sunday is now labeled in Business Insider as "infamous"... according to antiChristian hatemongers, Kim Bhasin and Melanie Hicken.
