Well, it turns out things haven't gone so good for wokester company, Penzey's Spices, which ran a 'Republicans are racist' campaign for .. I am not sure what purpose, it wasn't business. According to Fox News: A Wisconsin-based spice company that made headlines earlier this month when its CEO sent an email to customers accusing Republicans of racism is now asking people to buy gift cards after hemorrhaging tens of thousands of customers. Earlier this month, Penzeys Spices CEO Bill Penzey renamed the extended Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend to be "Republicans are racist weekend" in a newsletter to customers.


Lost customers, lost profit.

The ceo / owner / jerk will use this as an opportunity to hunt down and purge any insufficiently idea logically "impure" staffers. Like his hero, Stalin. Never let a crisis go to waste.

I've quit drinking Coke products because I'm too White, I order from the Spice House or King Arthur Flour Co., haven't watched even 5 minutes of NFL or the NBA, don't shop at Target and refuse to drink Starbucks. So far, I've survived in surprisingly good health, both mentally and physically! This article made me laugh, and laughter is good for you. Liberals are always calling for boycotts, so this karma is great.I will never understand a business that will denigrate a majority of its customers, and then cry when it loses their business. Virtue signaling liberals are a poor customer base to depend on for your livelihood.

I saw a report this morning that he's closing his retail store in Cincinnati, IIRC. The story made no mention of his stupidity, of course, or it's impact on his sales. It's Business 101 - it takes work to attract customers, and it's almost impossible to lure back customers who have left. He can tout his email gains all he wants; that's virtue signalling unless they buy enough to make up the difference. He lost 40,000 that he can verify, but that doesn't include all the people who didn't bother to unsubscribe. As this article mentions, there are far too many places to buy spices from nowadays. He doesn't have the niche market he did when he started. Personally, I buy from the Amish. They buy in bulk and repackage it. I can get an 8oz glass jar of spices cheaper than the tiny McCormick stuff in the grocery store, and far less than his prices.

Never mind the politics. Penzey's is so called quality spices going stale in little jars just like Kroger's. Find a well stocked bulk seller and get to know the owners and staff. I deal with a Mexican owned outfit at my local farmer's market. I get spices, herbs and a good deal of education. If I need a little bit of something unusual they will happily provide a teaspoon "free sample".

I grow and dry a lot of herbs during the summer months. I grow some in the vegetable garden (dill and borage) which bring in the beneficial insects to the garden. Grow other herbs in the herb garden -- they grow better in the ground and in an area that you don't fertilize too much. If you fertilize them, they grow too fast and bolt and are too willowy. They like good drainage and plain soil - they are not too picky. Some you might want to grow in pots if to keep them contained and not taking over (the mints). I don't buy too many spices.

Re #17....I had to chuckle a bit over the "the mints" comment. mother planted peppermint and spearmint many years ago in the garden in rural Virginia. Holy cow! They grow like crazy. I love grabbing a couple of leaves and rolling them in your hands to get the smell, ore chewing for flavor burst and they are fine for cooking....but how much mint do you really need? Mints can take over a whole area very quickly. But, pretty green plants, at least. I started eating fresh terragon with goat cheese in Georgia (country) and Armenia, and it was delicious. A few green sprigs wrapped around a half thumb sized piece of cheese kinda like feta, as an appetizer, is common in these countries, and excellent. And they make a bright green Tarkhuna carbonated drink which is flavored with terragon (they call it tarkhun). I know it sounds really wierd, but I found it to be like no other drink and excellent. Since I don't like liquor or wine, I often had that with dinner when there on business. And always a 'greens' platter as appetizer, fresh terragon, 'feta-ish' cheese and spring onions was the usual mix, in season. I'm no herb expert, but it can be an interesting topic, and how they are used in other countries is interesting.

I would love to boycott this jerk, but my wife's cooking has never needed much spicing up. Salt & pepper are her mainstays, and when she's feeling kinda sexy she might give it a few shakes of some garlic powder. I'm amazed to hear there are whole stores devoted to selling commodities that came into existence to cover the taste of rancid meat.

I'll bet my SS check this jerk didn't gain favor from the black community on the special Martin King Day. I don't see the purpose except Penzey has some deep pent-up rage against Republicans in general to say this. Maybe he didn't breast feed enough when he was born who can figure this stupidity out. The spice business is very active and competitive this buffoon accomplished something with his statement to satisfy himself, but he shouldn't complain about it now.

Re #23. The left, that loving and oh-so- tolerant group, seethes with hatred for anyone who disagrees with them. They have segued into a genuine hate group that not only feels that they are the wise and good but will not listen to any opinion other than theirs. It really appears psychotic in a lot of ways. Look at their comments and posts...they openly espouse locking up or killing anyone who disagrees with their vax narrative. Look at the screaming women who go ballistic if they see a sign or person displaying a different opinion. Frightening in many ways. These people have become lethally dangerous.

After Joe Biden, Tony Blinken and other Biden administration officials blithely assured that the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan after the chaotic U.S. pullout was miniscule, just a minor rounding error, Congress has come up with a more accurate figure. According to the Daily Caller: As many as 9,000 American citizens were left in Afghanistan when the U.S. military withdrew from the country Aug. 31, according to a report released Thursday by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. In public statements, Biden administration officials, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, claimed that only 100-150 Americans remained in Afghanistan and had contacted the U.S. government with a desire to leave.

It's not huge news that the Biden administration was a colossal failure on Afghanistan, or that Joe Biden still thinks there's nothing to apologize for. What's news now is the colossal incompetence that went on inside that administration as Afghanistan was collapsing, according to a leaked memo that Axios got hold of: Leaked notes from a White House Situation Room meeting the day before Kabul fell shed new light on just how unprepared the Biden administration was to evacuate Afghan nationals who'd helped the United States in its 20-year war against the Taliban.

“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it.” — George Orwell ×× As a psychologist, I was invariably sympathetic with individuals who had gender dysphoria and/or became transgender, even though the latter was distasteful to me. However, in recent years I have become deeply antagonistic towards such persons, principally because they have targeted children for chemical and physical mutilation. I now consider myself — proudly — to be transphobic. And I have no problems in saying so publicly. And you should, too. As a rule, when someone gets accused of something that liberals don’t like the automatic reaction is to deny the accusation.

Adults in the study performed "significantly" less well on tests designed to assess their driving abilities, including reaction times 30 minutes and 90 minutes after smoking marijuana, the data showed. They also had "borderline" declines in driving performance 3 1/2 hours after using the drug. By 4 1/2 hours after use, driving performance returned to normal levels, the researchers said.

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
