I have worn Levis since I was a kid. I will never buy another pair. Wrangler from now on.

Ben & Jerry and their ice cream can go to hell. Maybe they'll enjoy it there.

Just bear in mind that Ben & Jerry's is no longer the small, quaint, cool, little hippy-dippy company that it used to be. It was purchased by the mega multinational Unilever Group a few years ago (think Hellman's mayo, Wishbone salad dressings, Lipton soups and tea, Ragu, etc.). Messrs. Ben and Jerry may still like to talk the leftist talk but they obviously had no problem being swallowed-up in the thoroughly capitalist takover process to the tune of many millions of $.

So, in this case Unilever is your real target and you may, or may not, want to think about expanding your boycott list

Best Foods is the only mayo that I'll eat. I don't care where my $2/jar goes, as all else is garbage.

...oh yeah, and remember that Anheuser-Busch is no longer American owned. Its purchase by Belgian giant InBev was final this summer.

Damn! Things are so complicated these days!

Belgium is a gun friendly country after what they went through in WWII.

I thought Unilever was on the anti-vivisectionist list. They carve up animals for testing.

So Mssrs Benjamin and Gerald support the killing of small animals?

How does that fit into the scheme of their proud proclamation of hormone free dairy products and world peace?

I'm seriously pi$$ed about this.

all i was allowed to get when i was a kid was wranglers and rustlers. but i hated rustlers so it was only wranglers in my dresser. when i got a job i started buying my own clothes and wrangler was not on the list and it was jnco's and dickies. but i went into a store in the local mall and went looking for some good pair of work type cargo pants and ended up comin out with some wrangler ruffs for 60 bucks. never knew they could be that much, but they are just as good as mu dickies made of the same fabric.
