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.
The free exercise of consumer choice in the marketplace is a mob action? Unfair? Spitting at basic American values?
Are you saying the American consumer owes his dollar to Heinz and is responsible for ensuring the prosperity of any particular company's investors and employees? If so, that's news to me also.
Every time you buy product X and pass up product Y, you're "punishing" the employees and shareholders of company Y. How unfair! How unjust! How heartless! Don't you realize the "Y people" have a right to your dollar? </ sarcasm >
