You think if you steal from them they won't use the courts? Ideology is until the wallet is affected.
thats the thing, their wallet isnt affected since they pass it on to the consumer

Point 1 and 2 are my personal opinions, of which you are allowed to think differently. Point 3 and 4 are facts. Point 4, Platinum guy was already duking out with you. So that left me with my advice to read point 3 over again.

Huh? What friend? Who's him? ???

actually they might have started with a fact but then you offered an opinion, a pretty bad one imo

And we've regressed in this discussion...

On a side note. Are there any sodas which are kosher around the world?

I once asked the OU about Coca Cola (for a stopover in Italy) and they said not to use it.

Interesting. When was this? When I went a year and a half ago it was on the list.

There are certain countries I've heard that you aren't supposed to drink their Cola but I don't believe that Italy was one of them.

Orthodox Jews in Italy drink the coke (not that that's necessarily a rayah)

Around five years ago. OU is not saying its not kosher just they can't recommend it.

Coke isn't naturally kosher. They used to have two problematic ingredients in the US version. They changed that recipe a long time ago, but it doesn't surprise me if they had kashrus problems overseas.

it would be strange since coke uses the same flavor concentrate everywhere. the local bottler adds the sweetener and water i believe

But that's only available in the top first class lounges world-wide. I'm asking about s/t that a simple man can pick up in a supermarket.
