In reading all the hoopla about the “Occupy Wall Street” crowd, I started to wonder,” What is the left saying about this craziness.” So in a fit of nosiness, I started to read this gem.

To those that occupy: We stand with you. From your favorite producer of overpriced ice cream Ben and Jerry’s.

They have been leaning to the left for a long time so you say. But, guess what. Ol’ Ben and Jerry are not as squeaky clean as you would think!

Guess who sells Ben and Jerry’s?  WAL-MART!

So Ben and Jerry’s board of directors is spitting in the eye of the corporation that sells their products. A bit of hypocrisy here? Maybe a perfect example of pandering?

Everyone should be ticked. Either Ben and Jerry’s board are pretentious Socialists OR they are posturing to the poor to sell more goop!  And yes, the local news has already heard from me.

Schweddy balls anyone?
