I bought a big bottle of Hunt's last night. Don't believe in boycotts but I won't buy Heinz anymore!

For those in New York and New England, the excellent Hannaford Bros. Supermarkets has a house brand that tastes like Heinz ketchup. Cheaper, too.

Although I still think boycotting Heintz because of Kerry is silly. What happens when you find out Barbra Streisand owns, say, Ford stock?

Thank you for the whiff of common sense. What indeed, will people do? Are they going to investigate every single product they buy and what any person or family who owns over 4% of the stock does with their money?

Of course not. They're just going to kneejerk because of the name here and feel satisfied. Teresa Heinz Kerry is extremely wealthy. Nothing you do is going to affect that. So relax.

You do realize you're contradicting yourself, don't you?

Who owns Hunt's and Del Monte and what do they do with their money?

Already done. I've been carrying a list of all Heinz products for a few weeks now. Not buying them in stores or using them in restaurants.

Perfect. I know the Heinz company gave a donation to Bush Cheny. Do you know the Hunts did?

John F-ing Kerry is the one running around the country, blaming President Bush for offshoring of jobs and calling owners of companies that move jobs overseas, while his most Heinz plants ARE overseas.

As for American retailers...simple : stock fewer Heinz products. There are far too many alternative products out there to worry about retailers anyway. It's called free market capitalism. Supply/demand. My family hasn't used a Heinz product in years.

Consider Hormel foods also, Rampa Hormel, the wife of the Hormel owner is on that League of Conservation Voters (LCV)listed above that endorsed the Beacon Hill boy.

Why punish the employees? Same reason you punish the employees of Planned Parenthood when you get a clinic shut down. That's life. A few casualties along the way.

Heinz nor French

LOL Do I have to throw away my French's mustard too?

I don't buy Heinz because I hate the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It's still Tereza Heinz that's married to John F'in Kerry. That's enough for me. Now, if her husband that passed away were still around, I wouldn't have to boycott Heinz.

Anything named Heinz has started to disgust me.

I've been boycotting them for awhile. Don't give me all the reasons not to, the one reason I chose to is that great big dividend checks go to "Fuzzy Wuzzy Nurse" and her gigalo spouse.

her family only own 4% of Heinz stock. Which means that the company is independent from her.

Poor things Nobody said she was poor.

This action is grossly unfair to almost everybody: trying to punish someone with 4% holdings while punishing 96% of the remaining owners --- widows and orphans that have Heinz stock in their portfolios. And also punishing thousands men and women working for the company. And those working for the suppliers of that company. And their families as well.

This is nothing but a mob action. It is very saddening to see that so-called conservatives take sides and spit at basic American values.

"If we don't vote for Kerry, all of his staff will lose their jobs. Why punish them?

You really do not see the difference? These are political employees; they are Kerry's companions.

People at Heinz do work that has nothing to do with politics. Inquire after the products they make -- it's not political posters.
