    Healthy? Have you taken a look at the amount of fat, i.e. oil, that is in these “healthy” chips?

    It’s very simple. All those dozens of different foods are just mayonnaise with different flavorings. So it’s just a matter of deciding how you want your mayo flavored. Dill, mushroom, olive,etc…. Basically all the same thing.
    Shabbos dips are the biggest scam. Charging $4-$5 for a little tub of flavored mayo which cost 35 cents to produce is ridiculous.

    I wouldn’t encourage anyone to waste their time listening to politics rather than making more constructive use of their time.
    That aside, something to keep in mind is that unfortunately, Ben Shapiro quite often uses not-quite-proper language on his show.

    Unlike the rest of you, I am glad for GadolHadorah’s comment. She is exposing herself for what she really is.
    The only other explanation is that she is trying to rile people up. If that’s the case then she is just as sick.

    CTLAWYER:
    Point taken. However I am not saying Amazon doesn’t have its place in online commerce. Many Yidden used to, and still do make living selling on eBay, but people aren’t generally ordering items on eBay they would otherwise have bought at a local and/or Jewish-owned store.
    I am getting out of the habit of ordering items that I would buy at my local store but often would order on Amazon for the convenience. It’s too easy to pop open the Amazon app and order that jar of coffee or can of cocoa which will show up at my door the next day or so, but instead I can make sure to buy it locally and do my small part to help support my fellow Jew.

    Aside from not wanting to support Amazon, I have started cutting down on my Amazon purchases when possible for a different reason: Shopping local.
    The lockdowns which badly affected many Jewish businesses have reminded me of what my priorities as a Yid should be. It is a mitzvah to support another Yid, Even if it costs a bit more and it is less convenient. Why should I give my money to a mega corporation, especially one whos’ politics I don’t support, when I can get a mitzvah every time I make a purchase?
    This is aside from the fact that communities should really patronize their local businesses at any rate.
