Practice what you preach, BOY COTT GASOLINE and the new high prices on your healt care, don't forget, Obamacare is just around the corner Let's see how far that will get you Time American's stood up to the fact Arabs and gas companies are robbing them
8. prepare for new containers and labels
Ethan Schwartz ,   Eilat   (06.17.11)
The "new improved" product in the different sized container will cost more and the producers think the consumer will be too stupid of notice. I hope Israel has entered the age of consumerism.
9. I remember the time I went to by Lox
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (06.18.11)
When the clerk weighed the lox, she inluded the container in the weight, the scale should have been adjusted for Mishkal Naki, instead it was on "Bruto" When I asked her why, she told me her boss had to pay for the container I wouldn't have minded paying for the container, however the costs of containers isn't the same cost of the lox Paper containers cost less than lox
10. Food Boycotts
Mark Schwartz ,   Tel Aviv   (06.21.11)
This is the most expensive place in the Middle East. If FB and Twitter could bring down Mubarek in Egypt, then we can bring the dairy cartels (and others to their knees). Fortunately milk is price controlled. I can't think of any other product those cartels market that is essential to life. Hmm, let's see what we can FB and Twitter next. We are up to 93,000 and soon to be 100,000. I think the only reason why they are lowering the prices is because they don't want to dump after the expiration dates lapse...that is all they care about!
