Is Pat the latest victim of Glenn’s “progressive” name-calling? While he’s no Mike Huckabee, Pat lost his temper during a discussion on the rising price of ice cream. While Glenn was having a serious discussion on the rising price of food, Pat said complained that ice cream companies are trying to rip him off.
Glenn explained, “As prices climb, many brands have changed with packaging design while holding prices steady and as a result, hidden price increase that has gone largely undetected by average shopper. The study highlighted ten products that have shrank as much as 20%, Kraft American cheese, Haagen-Dazs ice cream, Classic Pesto Sauce, Hebrew National Beef Franks, Lanicane First Aid Spray and Ivory Dish Detergent was reduced 24 ounces from 30 ounces.”
“They tried to pull this with the ice cream containers where they charge you the same for less,” Pat said.
”It's a scam, though, you can't pretend like you're selling the same thing,” Pat added.
While Glenn and Stu tried to explain that it wasn’t a scam, Pat became increasingly irritated.
“It's the last straw when you start raising the price of ice cream,” Pat said. “They always say 50% more for the same price. So if you are going to decrease the volume for the same price, let me know that, too.”
Glenn then joked that Pat was arguing with a progressive mindset, saying people are too stupid to figure out what is going on.
