    Ben & Jerry’s said Monday it was going to stop selling its ice cream in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and contested east Jerusalem, saying the sales in the territories sought by the Palestinians are “inconsistent with our values.”

    You would have to kill me to get any of their Communist sympathizing ice cream down my throat.

    Don't recall having ever eaten Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Now I feel all the better for it. May the Bird of Paradise fly up their nose.

    I feel you... now if you like a good draft stout, similar to Guinness, then Murphy’s and/or Beamish stout. I can do this (enjoy a glass)cause I’m not an alcoholic unlike many in my family who make a career out of it. I like the taste of the stuff. One or two glasses and I nurse it all night. That’s my vaccine!

    If you want a good beer, Drink some Coors Original, at the Coors brewery in Colorado. It tastes totally different there. The taps pull it straight off the cold filters. It's great beer. My problem with the sell out to Molson is not quality, that was not harmed. The Coors family are huge Republicans and huge donors. Molson, kind of the other way.

    Being a huge Republican or a huge Democrat doesn’t sit well with me. To me your announcing your political and I’m not into that. The Jews at one time had the opportunity to proclaim The Lord as their leader and they muffed it. My Leadership rest with God alone, In Christ alone. Not any human being, not any party.

    Now on to beverages... most of the time I drink seltzer with lime, tea and bottled water (today). In years gone by Coors ( personally endorsed by Paul Newman to my FIL when he worked for him on his home in Connecticut. He flew it in by the case from Colorado and allowed his work crews to drink it).

    But things change. Where I did drink beer, I’ve moved to Stout and I measure my intake by the pint. Rare occasions a brandy or a single malt scotch. Funny but Americans just don’t make quality liquors any more... both funny and sad.

    What if Ben & Jerry did not sell in Israel? Would folks in the USA still buy it.
    Do they sell in Cuba? China?

    I like lox (and Norwegian cold-smoked salmon) but that flavor seems to clash with that of sweetened frozen dairy. Tastes differ.

    I made my own political statement years ago.

    I won’t buy, or eat if offered for free, anything they sell.

    peace to you

    Here told you can get a glass of beer with a shot. Then you will be dosed and drunk.

    But for me there ain’t no forgetting. They killed my family and counted them collateral damage. They will kill yours too if you let them. I’m glad to see you have self-esteem. Tolerance and tolerant people are not to be trusted...you are tolerant of only those that can injure you, and so you placate them. Never do that. My mother refused to put my sister away... they could not cajole her, threaten her, ignore her, starve her, break her and they tried. Do you know what sustained her, it was the Lord and it was the gift of a loving family. And what taught me is to put your trust in the Father and that is what sustains me. God bless.

    peace to you

    I perfer it with an onion bagel & veggie cream cheese. That’s how all the Elite in NY eat it. BTW Ben and Jerry’s isn’t bad ice cream and they keep Vermont dart farmers working. And my son can’t get a good bagel or a pizza since he moved to Florida and there ain’t no Christmas Trees there either. You can find lots of snakes there though. :Cautious
