Penzeys Spices wants to 'loot' its Kenosha
store in support of protests

While the Penzeys Spices store in Kenosha was not damaged during violent protests in the city, its CEO wants to "loot" his own store. Bill Penzey wrote to customers of his Wauwatosa-based chain of spice shops that he supports the mission behind the protests in Kenosha in response to a police officer shooting Jacob Blake in the back seven times at close range. "Someone wrote to say that you would be singing a different tune if it was your store being looted," Penzey wrote in the email. "I'm by no means perfect but seriously no, I wouldn't. Human life means everything; stuff, not so much."


PR stunt...if Penzy was sincere he would bust all the windows and burn the store out. This is just more liberal virtue signaling. Hey, Bill, it's insured...right?

What a jackass. How does looting stuff prevent the loss of a Black man's or any life for that matter? If looting his store could have prevented Jacob Blake from being shot, this would make some sense. As it stands, this is just a stupid post by an ultra liberal loon.

Too bad he gave his game away. When the insurance company investigates the 'looting' they'll see he only wanted the money for a renovation.

I stopped buying from Penzey's several years ago, when each catalog came with a sermon from Bill Penzey about the latest SJW topic du jour. The last straw was during one of the past Obama era BLM forays and he essentially told his customers that we need to stop being racist. I wanted spices, not a SJW lecture from someone who knows zip about me. I've taken my business to The Spice House, which was the original spice company that the Penzey family started. Their outreach consists of sponsoring drives to send spices to our deployed troops. Much better.

FTA: "What if we took a snapshot of our Kenosha store’s inventory tonight and simply gave away exactly that amount of inventory in the coming weeks?," he wrote. Right, because a few jars of spices is just what the owner of the used car lot that went up in flames or the owner of the furniture store that went up in flames needs to help restore their lives.

Analyst: Neither Trump or Biden care about soaring federal debt, deficit 13 replies

The U.S. government is awash in debt and red ink — and neither President Donald Trump or his Democratic challenger appear bothered by the status quo, an analyst told Yahoo Finance on Wednesday. Last week, the Treasury released data showing how the COVID-19 pandemic helped push the U.S. federal budget deficit above $3 trillion for the first 11 months of fiscal 2020, a rate more than double the prior full-year record. In previous years, the federal deficit — and the mountain of IOUs to investors it signified — would figure prominently in a presidential campaign.

Earlier Tuesday, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe declassified documents revealing that then-CIA Director John Brennan briefed President Obama in 2016 on Hillary Clinton’s “plan” to stir up a scandal tying then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia and distracting from the controversy over her private email server.
