NOT THAT MANY YEARS AGO – BEN & JERRY’S BOYCOTTED ISRAEL:
Yesterday, On July 4th . . . Ben & Jerry’s Decided to Go After the United States of America – On America’s 247th Birthday, on the Grounds that White (European) People Stole the Land from the Natives . . . And It’s Time For The Non-Indigenous People Of America To Give It Back.
FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE JEWS:
Jews & Non-Jews Throughout the World were Outraged & Disgusted with Ben & Jerry’s When they Decided to go the Full BDS (Boycott, Divest & Sanctions) Movement Against Israel, to the Point that Many Grocery Stores Took it Upon themselves to Either Boycott Ben & Jerry’s by No Longer Stocking-It on their Shelves . . . To Throwing Out The Inventory They Already Had.
But To Go Even Further . . . Many People Simply Stopped Buying Ben & Jerry’s.
In Our Case, Because I’m A Diabetic, Anne & I Don’t Eat Ice-Cream, which Didn’t Stop us from Boycotting all the Products we Could from Unilever, which is the Owner of Ben & Jerry’s, Even Though Ben & Jerry’s Seems to Have their Own Control Over Marketing & Sales.
Anne & I Weren’t The Only Ones Who Opted To Buy Whatever Competitor There Was To Unilever.
It Didn’t Happen Overnight, but it Did Happen, as Consumer Blowback Against Ben & Jerrys & Other Unilever Products, which Included Staples like their Mayonnaise, Ketchup, Mustard – Etc . . . Convinced Unilever to Make Whatever Deal they Had to Make with Ben & Jerry’s Management . . . To Fix What Ben & Jerry’s Broke.
THE SLAP-DOWN GIVEN TO BEN & JERRY’S WAS NOT A SECRET:
You Would Guess That Ben & Jerry’s Would Have Learned Their Lesson . . . But Stupid People Very Often Don’t Learn-Jack.
Equally . . . from the Mess Ben & Jerry’s Made of their Brand Over their Anti-Israel Boycott (BDS), you Might have Figured that this Type of a Response Against Ben & Jerry’s & Unilever – Would Have Been A Sufficient Warning For Other WOKE Corporations Like Budweiser, Disney, Target – Etc.
Here’s The Reality – They’re So Focused On Their Stupidity That They Can’t Help Themselves.
I’m Happy That Ben & Jerry’s Decided To Once Again Take A Walk Down Stupid-Street . . . Because I Want as Many Large Targets as Possible for us to Attack, and for us to Use as Examples for the People Who’ve Bought the BS from the LEFT, Simply because they’ve Bought the Lie from the Propagandized Media, that America is an Evil Country . . . In Need Of Fundamental Change As Was Campaigned By Barack Hussein Obama.
YESTERDAY – JULY 4, 2023 . . . ANNE & I CROSSED THE BORDER BACK TO CANADA:
Before We Crossed-Back Into Canada, We Crossed Into The United States Of America On June 30th, the Day Before Canada Day, and at the US Border we were Instructed to Veer a bit to the Right & Drive through a Long Building at a Precise Speed (8MPH), and then Follow the Instructions of the US Border Agent Inside.
It Turns Out that we Passed through a Low-Level X-Ray Machine that Thoroughly Scanned our Truck & RV for a Multitude of Illegal Substances.
And Here I Was Thinking . . . WOW, Isn’t This Great, as Two Canadian Citizens in their 70’s with Nexus Cards (Most Trusted Travelers), Pulling a Small RV (Travel Trailer) with a Late Model Pick-Up Truck are Scanned, While MILLIONS of Illegal Immigrants Flood (Invade) America with the Blessing of the LEFTIST American Government.
How Does That Make Sense? It Makes Sense Because The Government Makes No Sense.
GOING BACK TO CANADA:
There Was Very Little Border Traffic From America To Canada . . . But Nonetheless, even Before I Handed the Canadian Border Agent our Nexus Cards, he was Busy Filling-Out a Yellow Card (Form), which Meant that Anne, Tavor & I Were Going to be Pulled-Over for Special Treatment . . . And As Sure As The Sun Rises In The East & Sets In The West, Anne, Tavor & I Were Pulled-Over.
As Mentioned Previously, we were Hauling a Small RV (20-Foot) which we Use for Short Get-A-Ways, which Became the Focus for what Could Have been Described as a Strip-Search if the RV was Human.
WE VALUE OUR NEXUS CARDS & DON’T WANT TO VIOLATE OUR NEXUS AGREEMENT:
If We’re Caught Violating Our Oath To Nexus – The Penalty Is Forfeiture – Plus.
Anne & I Do Not Smuggle. And to the Very Best of our Knowledge, we Never Bring Into the United States of America or Canada, Anything that is Restricted in Grocery-Goods (Fruits, Vegetables, Chicken, Eggs – Etc), Excess Liquor, Cigarettes, Marijuana . . . Etcetera.
We Had Zero Concerns.
We Don’t Really Drink. Anne has some Wine every-now-and-then, and I Have the Occasional Beer with a Meal. We Don’t Smoke & Neither of us use Non-Prescription Drugs. And if we are Going to Import Anything Into Canada from the USA, which is Valued at More than $800 Canadian For Each Of Us, We will Declare What we Have & Pay Whatever Taxes and/or Duty that is Deemed Necessary by the Federal Government.
There Are No Taxes Charged On Legal Groceries Coming Into Canada . . . And Besides $100 Or So Dollars we Spent on American Groceries, our Biggest Imported Items were Two 24-Bottle Cases Of Yuengling Beer (As Long As It Isn’t Bud Or Any Other Anheuser Bush Product).
FORGIVE ME FOR USING THE FOLLOWING TO VENT A BIT . . .
According To Canada Customs . . . Each Adult Canadian Can Import 24-Cans Or Bottles Of Beer, Or so Many Liters of Wine, or so Many Liters of Hard Liquor. We Were Dancing On The Side Of The Angels . . . . And Then It Happened.
One of the Canadian Customs Agents Walked Up to us Holding a Pocket-Knife he Found in the Open-Door-Handle-Well of the Truck, which I Had (The Knife) for Much Longer than a Dozen Years, Which I Used For Cutting Hay Bale Strings, Opening Packages & For Other Mundane Uses.
The Agent Said . . . Explain This.
Explain What? . . . . It Was A Pocket Knife With A 3-Inch Blade; But Not To Him It Wasn’t. To the Customs Guy, it was a Knife with a Spring Assisted Release, which Made it a Restricted Weapon in Canada. To me, it was a Pocket Knife which Opened like all Pocket Knives . . . And Here Is Where It Got Serious.
I Could Legally Cross Into Canada With a Dagger Sheathed or Not – Worn or Not. I Can Cross Into Canada with a “Regular” Pocket Knife of Indeterminant Size in my Pocket or Exposed on the Seat, As Long As It Isn’t For Criminal Use. Who’s To Determine That?
So Here Was The Deal . . .
1 – I Could Surrender the Pocket Knife To Customs.
2 – I Could be Charged with Attempting to Smuggle a Dangerous Weapon Into Canada.
3 – They Could Seize My Truck & Trailer & Fine Me $1,000.
4 – I Could Face Up -To 5-Years in Prison for the Felony of Having a Dangerous Weapon.
With A Smile – I Surrendered The Knife. And In My Mind I Sarcastically Thanked Them For Saving Canada.
Before Leaving . . . I Asked the Two Customs Agents who went through our Truck & Trailer with a Fine-Tooth Comb . . . Why’d You Pull Us Over?
The Response . . . We Have a Quota to Fulfill of RV’s Searched, and you were the Next RV on the List. Nothing More Nothing Less.
AND NOW THAT I FINISHED VENTING:
If Our Governments Were Corporations . . . The Employees Would All Be Looking For Jobs.
