    Rush has many unscrupulous companies pushing his poisonous venom.  This one takes the cake.

      Andy Tobias (DNC treasurer, best selling author of money management books, and all around nice guy) touts Soda Stream from time to time on his blog. According to Andy, the company employs Palestinians at above average wages, provides decent benefits to Palestinians, and works toward a peaceful and respectful resolution of the issues in that neck of the woods.

      All I know is that it is soda, and we don't buy soda of any type.

        the CEO's statement explicitly references the occupation and refers to the land as occupied territory. That's about as strong a statement as I'd expect from any capitalist, especially one who is wholly dependent on the occupier for access to ports, roads, and international markets.

        I guess I'd have been happier if he referred to the land as "occupied Palestine," but it's still not a bad statement.

        And, yes, I drink soda water rarely enough that I wouldn't even dream of buying their- quite overpriced- product. I make my own whenever I need it, using a CO2 cartridge made in Hungary and a dispenser made in Austria, with filtered water from my local coop.
