"These stores are not worthy to carry my high quality product owned by a person with conviction to take a stand against a tyrannical Governor who does things that are UNCONSTITUTIONAL and then you have his very 'confused' sidekick who was born a man and made a man by God himself (that would be Richard) and this guy is making decisions about the health of PA residents lol, who's the one that's actually "out there"???!!," Mangano writes.

Time for this asshole to get wrecked financially.

There's a Mangina joke in here somewhere.

Douchebag gonna douche.

So, here's my question: how did this douchebag get to this point in the first place? It's not like he suddenly became a douchebag, right?

Is there some "acceptable" level of hate that, once crossed, flips a marketing bit or something? I'm fuzzy on this kind of thing - I don't know how this Boolean got to be a floating-point number with complex windowing rules.

Been to both giant and karns never seem his brand on the shelf. Surprised it took this long to pull his product after the bs he pulled back in the spring.

/Side note I would definitely recommend karns due to the large meat selection they have.almost like going to a butcher shop.
/ and sells cider that can be used for making hard cider
/I'm done plugging karns

He's probably angry at himself for the sick unrelenting boner he gets watching RuPaul's Drag Race.

CSB: I used to work with three generations of "stereotypical Italian guys" - Beij, Williams, and Zito, in Hartford, CT. Generations of Italian stonecutters and artisans. In the very late '80s, I helped them digitize some of their original art & fonts - they were still hand-cutting letters, using font layouts & templates that they had - for use with a Gerber vinyl cutter. (They were doing more sand & bead blasting, so vinyl templates over prepped stone made for quick work when it came to grave markers.)

Nice, respectful, tough, and honest folks, to the point where I still remember the gig fondly, over 30 years later. They treated me not just well, but kindly, despite being some of the most masculine folks I'd worked with outside of my own family - they weren't sexist assholes, or at least I never saw it.

tl;dr: the stereotype is bullshiat.

I find it bizarre - it's as though his masculinity is somehow challenged, even though Rachael's gender identity has nothing to do with him at all. I doubt Rachael spends a second thinking, "I wonder if my choices will somehow bother this asshole?"

Mangano needs to go full-on Stuart Smalley in a mirror, and say to himself over & over again, "I am not somehow a failure at my own gender identity, somehow less of a man, because someone else has a different gender identity. I am still burly and swole, even if Richard is now Rachel and wears that flowing, comfortable shift over a sweet, supple ass as she walks up the stairs to the podi...ah, damn it, DAMN IT!"

It's descriptive of the quality of pasta sauce one can expect from white people in East Clodhop Pennsyltucky.

You all can be forgiven for not understanding the brilliant capitalist prowess demonstrated by Mr. MANgano.  This mastermind is just playing a marketing long game.

See, to socialist, soy-sipping latte breathers such as yourselves, the gasps of outrage you hear after shiatting all over someone because of their sexual orientation may sound like the dying breaths of your business.  To Mr. MunGUYno, they are a fetid zephyr of new opportunities, as your clientele becomes more loyal.

They mostly live hundreds of miles away and just clicked "like" on Facebook before navigating off to some other distraction, and they cant really afford to eat out anyway. Let alone travel to central PA to do it.  Isnt it, like, all Amish out there anyway?  What do they eat, horse? Yuck. I'm not eating horse.

Eh, forget it. Why bother. You fools will never understand.

This guy sounds like an asshole who I wouldn't want to do business with period.

You can completely disagree with the governor and the health officer and how they are handling the pandemic, but resorting to low-brow insults makes you an asshole.

FYI, freedom of speech doesn't protect you from the social consequences of your speech.

What some Italian American families call tomato sauce (whether marinara, Bolognese, etc).

It really depends on the family. Some Italian America families insist on Ragu (this is the reason why there is a branch called "Ragu", not the other way around).

\Grew up with a lot of Italian American families in Philly
\\Add this to the pile of "Odd Italian American Things", like saying Mozzerella "Moos-za-rel" even though there isn't an Italian dialect that says it like that
