Penzey's Spices, the Milwaukee-based company that held "Republicans are Racist Weekend" sale on Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend earlier this month, is now dealing with a massive loss of customers and is now all but begging for new business. "After starting the year with All Republicans are Republicans and following up with Republicans are Racists we’ve set a nice little Boycott Penzeys! surge in motion," Penzey's CEO Bill Penzey said in an email to customers Friday. "It certainly wasn’t unexpected, but if it’s within your means, you picking up a small stack of Gift Cards would help."

I quit buying from Penzey's after Trump was elected and Bill Penzey sent out an APB denouncing Republicans as horrible people, and I had my name taken off the mailing list, and I imagine a lot of other people did the same. The boy doesn't seem to have learned much. Has he really lost only 3% of his customer base? Why would he care? Or is the real number a lot bigger than that?

I used to buy all my spices from Penzy’s but when I found out what a colossal jerk he is I stopped. Now I buy my spices from Spice House. It’s mail order but I don’t care.

Back in the day - back when Salzburg was the OPEC equivalent salt purveyor, well, thats when spices carried heft and power. The New World was discovered due to spices. Not so much anymore. Now spices are simply, for the most part a commodity, but not worth the trade effort of pork bellies and unleaded gas. People simply lose their minds when it comes to politics - don't they?

#3 makes an excellent point. This guy wouldn't be so desperate if he had only lost a small amount of his customer base. He claims 10,000 signed up for his email, but that doesn't mean they buy anything. And people could stop ordering without unsubscribing; it's faster just to mark a message as spam. He's losing a lot of money.

Webster’s definition of racist: “a : having, reflecting, or fostering the belief that race is a fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.” Leftist tyrant’s definition of racist: “Anyone, anywhere, at anytime who does not agree with me on ANY subject; regardless of whether it is related to race in any way”. So, by the current definition, most of us who read Lucianne are most certainly “racists”. Makes me proud.

FWIW if you throw away a gift card it becomes 100% profit to the issuing company. They have the money and don't have to provide a product for it in return. I'm open to ideas of how to convert that gift card to cash at the expense of the issuer, but at least make them provide something for the gift card. Throw it away once you have it if you like. I suppose if you bought close out products and discounted stuff you would narrow their profit margin.

It seems to me (that) saying Republicans are racist is the most racist thing you can say in today’s America. That includes calling someone Ni****. Because the reason for saying something so dishonest and poisonous is to sustain and increase racial divisiveness in society to make political profit from it. Pure evil.

And they say there isn't any good news anymore. But don't trash the gift card. In some states, the issuing business can pocket the money on unused gift cards. Some require it to be turned over to the state. Buy some spices and send them to a homeless shelter, battered womens shelter, or home for unwed mothers, or a convent.

If you are unfortunate enough to be gifted a card, consider buying 1 unit of the cheapest thing they sell and get it shipped to you and repeat with a separate shipment for each unit. That should drive their overhead costs up.

Although I don't necessarily consider myself a Republican, I have been boycotting Penzeys spices since the O'Bama years when I discovered what a lefty Penzey himself is. I took the Penzey spices I had received as Christmas gifts and dumped them on the counter of the store in Maplewood. Phone lines run both ways and so does cancel culture if you believe there is any cultural dimension to barbaric leftism.

Libertards always do the same thing. After basking in the warmth and wealth provided by conservative American producers, they turn their backs on what brought them there, thinking they can destroy the underlying culture, substituting "Progressivism" in its place. Of course their Orwellian word goulash is just more, "Forward, to the past!" So, this braindead moron, enjoying the success in the "evil" Capitalist Free Market, he finds out that people vote with their pocketbooks and is now butthurt begging for mercy after egging on a war. I've got a song for you: "Imagine there's no profits, it's easy if you try, No Leftist Spices, Only the MyPillow Guy Imagine all pro-Trumpers, Snorting pure Cayene! Woo-hoo-oooohh"

NY Doctor Proved Everyone Wrong About Hydroxychloroquine 8 replies
Posted by GustoGrabber 2/5/2022 2:19:57 PM Post Reply
Many doctors around the world started using the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) early on in the COVID-19 pandemic. Among them is Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, a practicing physician in a Jewish community in Monroe, New York. He garnered national attention in March 2020 when he told radio host Sean Hannity that he’d had a near-100% success rate treating COVID-19 patients with HCQ, azithromycin and zinc sulfate for five days. “I’ve seen remarkable results; it really prevents progression of disease, and patients get better,” he said at the time

Did Hillary Clinton or the Democratic National Committee ever pay Michael Avenatti? The question isn’t exactly new. It was at least hinted at as early as May 10, 2018. That day, Mark Penn, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton, published an op-ed in The Hill newspaper. At the time, the news was filled with the rantings of Avenatti, who gained his fame and notoriety representing former porn star Stormy Daniels. Daniels was claiming she was paid to cover up an affair with Donald Trump before he was elected president. Penn’s column raised several good questions.

Although taken for granted by millions of Americans, the choice to obtain a college degree mystifies economists. Teenagers making the first significant financial decision of their lives are paraded through prospective student tours—essentially timeshare presentations for minors—and finally make an arbitrary pick where they will spend around a quarter-million dollars of borrowed or parental money. For some, the degree results in open doors and respectable careers. For others, it’s a scam that wastes their time and money. Across the nation, colleges are losing customers because young people are wising up to the risks of credentialism-based debt.

For the first nine months of the COVID-19 pandemic, there were no officially approved outpatient treatments for combating the disease. The medical establishment expressed extreme caution regarding such treatments, and these warnings were amplified by major media hostile to President Trump, as when he touted the anti-malaria medicine hydroxychloroquine. Although an estimated 12 percent to 38 percent of prescriptions are written for FDA-approved drugs used “off-label” (including Botox and Viagra), Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, declared early on that providers should dispense only medicines proven to be safe and effective for COVID patients through “randomized, placebo-controlled trials.”

What do we mean by the Revolution? The war? That was no part of the revolution; it was only an effect and consequence of it. The revolution was in the minds of the people.” What did John Adams mean when he wrote this to Thomas Jefferson in 1815, after both had served as president? Adams was saying that America, the country that took up arms and fought for its independence from the British, was already a nation — before 1775. America preexisted the Constitution, Adams is saying. America had been conceived and born before he and Jefferson began to write its Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia in 1776.

Americans want an autonomous Ukraine to survive. They hope the West can stop Russian President Vladimir Putin’s strangulation of both Ukraine and NATO. Yet Americans do not want their troops to venture across the world to Europe’s backyard to fight nuclear Russia to ensure that Ukraine stays independent. Most Americans oppose the notion that Russia can simply dictate the future of Ukraine. Yet Americans also grudgingly accept that Ukraine was often historically part of Russia. During World War II, it was the bloody scene of joint Russian-Ukrainian sacrifices—more than 5 million killed—to defeat the Nazi German invasion.

A new super-mutant HIV strain that makes infected individuals ill twice as fast as current versions of the virus has been detected in the Netherlands. The new mutant—called the VB variant—has infected at least 109 people, according to a study by Oxford University. The strain damages the immune system and weakens a person's ability to fight everyday infections and disease faster than previous versions of the virus. It means those who catch this strain could develop AIDS more quickly. The VB variant also has a viral load between 3.5 and 5.5 times higher than the current strain, meaning infected people are more likely to transmit the virus
