Kraft abandons conservative group
politico ^ | April 5 2012

Posted on 04/05/2012 8:04:19 PM PDT by NoLibZone

Kraft Foods, Inc. has become the third corporate titan to abandon a conservative group that supports the type of “Stand Your Ground” gun law at the center of the Trayvon Martin controversy in Florida.

Kraft — one of many corporation members of the American Legislative Exchange Council — won’t renew its membership when it expires this spring, Kraft Corporate Affairs Director Susan Davison told POLITICO.

Do these companies know that when they come under Obamas control they’ll have to give their products away for free

It sounds like Kraft believes that normal Americans should not resist and just allow thugs like Martin to beat their @$$ without throwing up any kind of a response.

What is American Corporatism?
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1036236/posts

I would add that Corporatism destroys Traditional Values, destroys Western Culture, enforces Political Correctness and hates Christians.

I prefer Tillamok cheese anyway.
Somebody needs to tell these companies that they will either hang together or hang separately. They are bending over for people who don't buy their products.

They make salad dressings as well. Matter of fact I ran out of my kraft Italian dressing and will be buying another brand this time around maybe Newmans.

Gubmint cheese. Except the real gubmint cheese of ago was real cheese.

I’m ashamed I just bought some Kraft the other day with ‘a little Philly’ - never again. Either one.

I resist that notion and will buy only local cheeses now. That's mostly what I've been doing anyway, they are both better tasting and cheaper.

Kraft, I 100% support your right to make your choices. I am similarly making mine.

Alienating the people who BUY their products for those who STEAL their products? Brilliant move, Kraft. Are they afraid of getting audited by 0bama’s IRS this year or something?

Ditto. I stopped buying Kraft cheese when I discovered it began adding Natamycin to its cheese in order to extend shelf life and appearance. A search of the drug name Natamycin revealed it is an antifungal used in the treatment of specific eye diseases. And I’m supposed to want to eat cheese laced with this drug? This company has been shameless in its use of additives in all its products, and continues to rely heavily upon high fructose corn syrup as well. My wife purchases Kraft products but I will not eat any of it any longer. Yes Cabot makes a fine cheese. I even purchase the Publix store brand and it is quite good yet contains no antifungal eye medications.

we need to stop buying brand name products that support liberal / progressive messages. then call those companies and express your displeasure with their one-sided political propaganda

start a list ... if they don’t support conservatives... they obviously don’t want our business

MAKE IT HURT

You’ve all missed the point, which is, these major corporations caved into the new Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson extortionist, marxist Van Jones and his new front group, Color of Change.

This is where conservative journalism needs to focus their attention and expose both Van Jones/COC and the cowardice of these “Big Businesses”.

It is hard to bring about a boycott of these major corporations, but a stockholders’ protest by conservative stock holders would be a nice tactic.

The problem is.. The list is sooooooooo long we have little choice.

I’ll admit, my cars are insured by progressive. I wanted to leave them but the top teir insurers where 2-4 times MORE per year, the only one lower was esurance, but they won’t cover cargo vans.

When Krap mac and cheese went over 60 cents a box (it’s in the 1.50 range now) we switched to making our own. Much better taste anyways.

No more Kraft for me!

We tried generic instead of the usual Miracle Whip and found it quite good. When Coke went to 20-pack/cases rather than the customary 24-pack, we dumped them too. We quit Proctor & Gamble in entirety years ago. There are suitable, and in many cases more than suitable substitutes for brand names that let activists decide their policies.

When we replaced our carpet, we got measurements and a quote from the big box stores that was significantly beaten by a local (no agenda support for activist causes) store for Karastan carpet. Alternatives are there, we just need to locate and use them.

Coke and Kraft have both cast their lot with the thugs. Their products aren't particularly healthy anyway. No problem leaving it on the shelf.

Why do the media outlets continue to say that the Trayvon death is linked to the FL law of Stand Your Ground?

Zimmerman’s attorney publically stated over a week ago that the SYG law is not applicable. Instead, this was simply a matter of Self Defense.

btw, I can’t recall the last time I bought any of the fake cheese made by Kraft and I use Great Value salad dressings from W-M that are identical to Kraft’s in taste and much cheaper.

Bummer! I love Philadelphia Cream Cheese and Kraft Real Mayonnaise. Gah! My mater sammich won’t be the same without it. :(

I have found that some Wal-Mart mayonnaises are cheaper,
tastier, and without *-mycin stuff. One of them has contents
by decreasing weight per cent:

soybean oil
water
egg yolks
vinegar
high fructose corn syrup (hard to evade these days)

contains less than 2% of:
salt
whole eggs
natural flavor (??)
Calcium disodium EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetate)

Calories per gram: Fat 9, Carbohydrate 4, protein 4

(As a PhD physical chemist, I have no problem with ingesting small amounts of food-grade EDTA used as a preservative to stabilize color and shear-thinning rheology. Hope this is not too chemical-sounding. Look it up in Wiki.)

It's called "State Fair Real Mayonnaise" -- probably like homemade stuff. (Distributed by The Carriage House Companies, Inc, Fredonia, NY, 14053, USA).

You might want to try that. I like it better than H*llman's, which is more bland and expensive, to my taste.

... Kraft Foods Board of Directors, Kraft Foods Inc., Three Lakes Drive, Northfield, IL 60093, USA, ...

Well, the thought-patterns of their executives will be tainted and soiled by the gun-hating Illinois average mind-set.

I'm sure they do not have to deal with any issues of their employees keeping firearms in their cars in the parking lot. Nobody will have a CCDW license, for sure.

I guess they want to inculcate the Illinois no-joy into the rest of the country.
