    SourceA western Massachusetts business owner claims he was misinformed about the purpose of his trip to the White House this week.  Dave Ratner, owner of Dave’s Soda and Pet City was there when President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday to develop policies that would increase health care competition and choice.  Ratner said he was invited by the National Retail Federation and professes he would have never went if he had known the President’s intentions that day. He noted that the meeting was supposed to be about reversing a rule that would offer group insurance rates to members of the N.R.F. Ratner apologized to his customers in a written statement on Facebook the following day which said in part: 

    I did not go for Trump. I and the 20 other small business owners went to support the millions of small businesses that are in a complete disadvantage to the chains when it comes to buying health insurance for their employees.

    Since Thursday, Dave’s business has received a large number of negative reviews posted on social media. 

    Oh for fuck’s sake. Can someone PLEASE get this dude a PR guy? I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone blow a situation worse than this guy just did.

    First of all, I have no problem with his page getting flooded with one star reviews. I disagree with the reasoning behind it, but Turtleboy would be the biggest hypocrite on earth if we criticized the tactics they’re using. After all, turtle riders literally just destroyed a coffee shop in Lynn over politics the other day. Welcome to the Internet. This is how the world works now.

    Secondly, how do you not see something like this coming? You sell dog food in Western Massachusetts. Do you understand the kind of people that live in Western Massachusetts? There’s like 3 or 4 places out there that are redeemable – Agawam, Ludlow, and the Longmeadows. Other than that it’s Charlemont trailer parks, hoodrats, and rabid granola eating SJWs. You voluntarily took a picture with a President who sparks the most insane triggering butthurt since Millard Filmore, while he was signing a document that gets rid of a lot of the things their cult leader (#44) enacted, and yet you didn’t think anyone would have a problem with this? What planet is this dude living on? Has he ever been on social media before? Kind of hard to miss.

    Thirdly, if you’re gonna do something like this, then just own it man. Whatever you do, DO NOT do what you just did. DO NOT try kissing these people’s asses. Trust me, they don’t want to get along with you. They hate you forever now. This was completely gutless:

    “If someone says to you, this is what I’m going to do, you go there because you think that’s what they’re going to do, right? (Trump) just basically dismantled all of Obamacare, but he didn’t let that out until we were standing there,” he said in an interview. “People think that I went and I’m in favor of dismantling Obamacare, I’m certainly not in favor of all the other stuff — it’s stupid — and neither is the association. I wasn’t duped, I just never would have gone had I known what the true intention was.”

    “I apologize, I’m embarrassed and I never in a million, gazillion years would have gone had I known what he was going to announce, because I think it’s stupid and I agree with them completely — it’s mean,” he added. 

    This can’t be real. Ummmm….after the wall, there’s nothing Trump talked more about than dismantling Obamacare. If you didn’t know that Trump’s intention was to dismantle Obamacare then, yea, you’re just lying. And it’s a really, really bad look for you.

    Just own it man. Just come out and say, “I don’t always agree with the President, but this particular bill is good for small businesses like mine which pay taxes and employ people in the community, because it’s impossible for us to compete with Wal-Mart if we have to pay for our employee’s health insurance.” That’s it. Instead he chose to kiss the asses of a bunch of people giving him one star reviews in the hopes they’d change their minds. And it failed miserably:

    Look, the fact of the matter is that these people don’t shave their muffs. They’re miserable, horrible people. And they LIVE for moments like this. They don’t want to get along with you. They will never, ever get over this. Why you’d even give them that opportunity is beyond me. Never mix politics with business, especially when you live in Western Massachusetts.

    Fourthly, it’s insane that this type of reaction happens over politics. I thought it was sad and pathetic when right wingers started boycotting the NFL and burning jerseys because some players took a knee during the National Anthem. If this same guy took a picture with Obama signing a bill the people screaming right now wouldn’t have a problem with it. But it is what it is, and Dave’s gotta know his audience.

    Fifthly, fuck these assholes doing this. Like it or not Trump is the President. If you want to repeal Obamacare that doesn’t make you evil. If you want Obamacare it likewise doesn’t make you evil. Healthcare is a right. It’s something you have the right to purchase. But you don’t have a right to free healthcare. You DO have the right to free speech and to boycott this guy’s business, just as we have the right to publicly humiliate you for being losers. Like Stevie Converse:

    “We know where you loyalty lies and it ain’t with me or anyone else I know.”

    Translation – “I’ve insulated myself in progressive, all white social circles with my earth crunchy adjunct professor friends, so that none of us ever disagrees with another person in a social situation. Because we cannot tolerate being around people who disagree with us.”

    Shocking that a chick named Stevie would be this butthurt over dog food.

    Then there’s Lisa Hagar:

    She’s a real winner:

    Oh look, a rabid white woman from Western Mass using the power of her keyboard to save the world. Never seen anything like that before!! Funny, because she’s got a shitload of black lives matter stuff on her Facebook page, but there aren’t any black people in any of the pictures. It’s almost as if people like her just pretend to like black people because they think it sounds good, but then they intentionally segregate themselves in communities to stay far, far away from minorities.

    Oh yea, and you know that whole “#metoo” thing all the SJWs are lining up to share today so they can compete to find out who the biggest victim is? Yea, Lisa Hagar doesn’t like that, but it’s not why you think:

    Wait…..what?? So this hashtag is supposed to be for women who have been sexually harassed, and she’s not happy about it because men who used to be women can’t use this as an opportunity to victimize themselves? That is so Western Mass it hurts.

    Finally there was Dale West:

    And Dale is everything you would imagine she would be:

    Scissor me timbers!!

    By the sounds of it this guy does great business. He’s been around for a billion years and has thrived despite Petco and Walmart likely being able to undercut his prices. So the dude doesn’t wanna be forced to pay healthcare if it’s gonna threaten his livelihood and those of his employees. That seems perfectly reasonable. He wasn’t endorsing pussy grabbing or the wall or anything else associated with Trump. Just this one particular issue, and these Nazis wanna ruin him because of that. Yes, it was gutless to cave to them, but that’s because he’s naive and has no idea what he’s doing when it comes to PR. So if your dog is hungry, head on down to Dave’s Soda and Pet City and let him know that you support freedom and locally owned businesses.

     

    We urge you to support the following local businesses. They provide terrific services for the community!

      I always try to give to small businesses in my town regardless of someone’s politics.
      I may not agree with this guy but I’ll make sure to give him some business next
      time I’m out that way. The same people complaining about this guy will be
      the first to protest a new Wal-Mart. Give it a break granola eaters.

      1. Fake Rant Queen


        I’m guessing Dave is one of the few remaining liberals who still– naively– believed in old-fashioned “bipartisanship”. And who innocently mistook Western Mass moonbats, SJWs and militant vegans for “nice people”.

        Dave, you know what we say: “a conservative is a liberal who got mugged.” Fortunately the deplorables have your 6 on this one. And we don’t care what you think, but we L♡VE small business. Next time I visit my Polish relatives, I’ll be sure to swing by!

    2. BobnMic


      For the record it is President Trump. Not just Trump. Give that office of the Presidency some respect for fuck sake.

      1. Tired of Ponch's Snatch


        sure..

      2. You suck at life


        Thanks for the lecture, old man… Now… go yell at a cloud or something…

      3. Murricah413


        suck dick. this is america not communist China. If you want to call him Dickhead Trump (or Dickhead Obama for my conservative peeps) go ahead

    3. Woot


      Dave sells on the internet. I’m buying my dog stuff from his website from now on just BECAUSE of the dumb boycott.

    4. bigdaddy


      Thats the reason I stay away from western MA to avoid SJW assholes like that

    5. They call me Ponch


      This response was expected. Red meat for the Granola Nazis.

      Take the heat, ride the wave and give no fucks.

      ( * should’ve)

    6. Fisting Lesbians


      You got pics of some good looking ladies on this blog, makes me wanna break out the pogo stick. Anyways our dogs eat at the Y if you know what I mean. Peace Y’all.

    7. Loyal Turtlerider


      Looks like he’s getting a ton of support on there too, many people giving 5 star ratings and calling out the snowflakes.

    8. ChrisInShrewsbury


      Please! This guy is a marketing genius!

      ANY INK IS GOOD INK. I anticipate sales up 20% this week.

    9. JoeMomma


      Looks like I’ll have to drive to western Mass for all my dog supplies now.

    10. Steven Stover


      SJW’s hate.

    11. SRR


      I have shopped at Dave’s since he opened his store in the town I live in, at least twice a week and on average I easily spend $60.00 per week there. I will continue to shop at Dave’s even though I voted for president Trump. I suppose you I could feign some indignation about Dave’s rejection of the president and go spend my money else where but I don’t have time for that I would have to go to at least three other stores and waste my time when I can get everything I need at Dave’s. But for future reference Dave should take a page out of president Trump’s book – Say what you believe and stand by it! No apology! I voted for Trump for That very reason He says what he thinks, No pc crap or pandering,No apologizes , I don’t agree with all of the President’s plans but I appreciate his honesty and unwillingness to censor himself just to placate others in the political arena.

    12. Barry


      Ignore the SJWs Dave, they aren’t the ones buying your pet food, they have their dogs and cats on vegan diets. Unless you carry a line of pet food that certifies that only male animals are slaughtered in production

    13. Keri


      Agawam is redeemable!! YES!!

      1. johnnyb


        Umm.no…

    14. The Wall


      “Rabid ganola eating SJWs,” LMAO.

    15. Rethuglycon


      Bringing back junk plans and taking away subsidies is “creating choice?” And what’s inaccurate about calling your messiah a white nationalist misogynist thug? Just “own up to what you’re about,” man!

      1. bigdaddy


        Can you translate that from assshole to english

    16. User00


      He lives in Longmeadow and owns a Rolls-Royce.

      1. Sloppy


        …and he started his business by himself 40+ years ago in an abandoned gas station.
        I think he’s earned the Rolls.

        BTW, “scissor me timbers”; fookin’ hell mate, that was a good laugh I got TB

    17. Scottie


      never get between the lezzies and their furry child substitutes…

    18. Samiam


      I like this guy to be honest he’s pretty awesome. Before this his customers loved him and I’m sure will remain loyal the him. Pet food is stupid expensive now a days, you can’t just buy a $10 bag of gravy train which my dogs still prefer. You have to get the grain free, smallest ingredient list possible organic nonsense. His guy also offers his own pet food brand that I’m sure most pets wouldn’t be too happy being replaced. Read his website, it’s adorable and I really think he is just all for small businesses and didn’t think the political aspect of his White House visit through.

    19. bleh


      “A western Massachusetts business owner claims he was misinformed about the purpose of his trip to the White House this week.”

      Wait, what?

    20. Jack Grady


      OFCS, Dave!
      You can’t have your kibble and eat it, too. You made a choice to go to D.C. and don’t don’t piss down my neck and tell me it’s rainin’ when you say you didn’t know why.
      Man up, take the heat AND the kudos and soldier on.
      The few peeps out there that are bad mouthing you (anonymously) will be in to get their weasel food and those who don’t, FUCK ‘EM! You’ve got a big enough footprint in Western MA you ain’t gonna suffer.
      Don’t be a puss!

    21. Just some guy


      They’ll be running right back when their dogs get sick from that garbage big box stores call food. Happened the other week to my friends dogs with a supposedly reputable brand

    22. Sterling Turtle Rider


      While reading the third comment down in the first grouping of them, I totally didn’t buy her schtick until I read the last sentence that said “I am a black lesbian, and I am very offended”, which automatically multiplies her outrage by 300x and means she always wins.
      Losers crying about stupid things, speaking in buzzwords and cliches, and perpetuating their own miserable existence… it’s sad.

    23. Squar


      Systematically killing my people? Really?
