I remember when actors were just actors, artists were just artists, business owners just business owners. When they didn’t annoy or harass the American people with their politics. When they didn’t make me not want to do business with them or turn the other channel. They are killing their own success / business by buying into this communist socialist collective groupthink bull$hip that no one wants to hear and joining into the fray. I say lets stop buying their products and kill their cash ows and see how much they want to flap their gums without any money in heir bank accounts.
These socialists, sure didn’t mind the benefits of being Capitalists.
Old hippies protesting.
Ben & Jerrys employees can take three pints of ice cream home with them each day.
I will stick with my home made ice cream from REAL milk, unpasteurized.
Are you suggesting B&J doesn’t use *real* milk in their ice cream?
They changed the name of “Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to I Dough, I Dough in honor of the Supreme courts upholding of same-sex marriage”
I'm guessing their Obamacare health plans are rated up a bit...
I can take home three cases of beer, and get six more at an extreme discount every month.
I work at Coors.
I like to pan B&J, but I have to give them credit.
They *still* have PINTS of IC ....as compared to Daagen at 14 0z....priced about the same in my locale.
I believe B&J employees’ pay starts at double the min wage.
They were generous contributors to OWS, if you’re in the mood to hate them even more.
Explains why their ice cream costs so much for so little. It does taste good though. They just need to stick to ice cream and stay out of politics. I mean if they want to be smart businessmen and still keep turning a good profit because people are awfully fickle if the next best thing comes along and they have any reason at all to drop your business.
I suppose, that’s great, if you like beer. :)
I am seeing a poster of Michael Moore belly bulging in a Che shirt eating from a two gallon tub of Ben and Jerry’s with the Cuban flag flapping in the background over a run down medical clinic. Flavor suggestions ?
They sold out to Unilever in 2000, IIRC.
Who cares. Just trying to sell a few more pints of ice cream to the whiners
Wealthy progressive publicity hounds.
It would be hilarious if the judge threw them in jail for a month instead of charging fines.
