Many PBA (Police Benevolant Associations) and FOP (Fraternal Order of Police) have been boycotting Ben& Jerrys for years due to them financially backing a convicted murder in Philly Pa.

As was stated in another post, many of these same individuals earn BIG money from violent films. These are usually bleeding heart liberals that attempt to further their own agenda using the misfortunes of others.

Too Old, I respectfully take issue with your point about her voicing her opinion. I agree she has a right to do so. However, she is taking a stand against the land that has given her everything she has. She is not doing what is in the best interest of anyone other than attempting to increase her own popularity. It is akin to burning the flag in my eyes. If you want to be anti-american, move out the country and do not come back and bash all you want.

Shane, send her to Iraq, let her exhibit the same disrespectful, uneduacted verbiage towards Saddam she does towards President Bush. How long will she be a factor in any equation then. Not long. Respect goes a long way. While we may not always agree, we should still show respect for our President and our Nation. In times like these, our Country needs it's citizens of all races, religions, beliefs to stand United. Like our Anthem says, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, not numerous displaced factions. With our heritage of strength and right, we will prevail. I am off my soapbox now.

Buy an ice cream maker and get to work

#1 -- It IS her right to make such statements, and anyone who tries to squelch her is doing this country a BIG disservice. Freedom of speech is the life blood of democracy. Boycotting Ben & Jerry's is your right, too. (I have boycotted them for the last 2 years, although I prefer to call it a diet.)

#2 -- Not everyone that loves this country thinks going to war in Iraq is appropriate at this point. I do not, and I am a registered Republican, and have always been.

#3 -- Catman: try the Blue Bell.

You can leave Ben and Jerry's a comment here: http://www.benandjerrys.com/ca/

Here's what I left them:

Quote:
Ben & Jerry's gets a big THANK YOU! for making my grocery shopping easier. By sponsoring Susan Sarandon's recent commercial in support of Saddam Hussein, the mass-murderer dictator of Iraq, you've demonstrated the values of your company. I now can pass over the entire Ben & Jerry's section in the local supermarket, making it that much easier to do my shopping.

In fact, I think I'll speak to the management at our local store about removing your products completely. Thank you again!

Wasn't Ben and Jerry's sold to a large Company? If so, too bad because the boycott won't hurt Ben and Jerry!

That means those two commies (ben & jerry) are sitting around their New Hampshire (or wherever) farms, probably decked out in their tie dyed jogging suits, smoking some stuff, and just laughing their asses off, about how they "screwed the establishment". I hope susan saranwrap shows up at their place for a love in and gives them all the youknowwhat!

What I want to know is why we even give the celeb crowd an audience?

They haven't lived in the real world for a long time and I could give a rats fart what their uninformed opinion is on these matters.

They need to stick to making movies instead of trying to extend their fantasy lives into my world.


There freaken actors for goodness sakes...no one cares what they think...at least they shouldn't...
