We’re from New York, I swear!

AriZona Iced Tea goes out of its way to distance itself from its namesake state


 

Arizona’s controversial new immigration law is garnering a lot of negative attention for the state. There are calls for boycotts of everything from Arizona tourism, to concert tours, to Major League Baseball’s 2010 All-Star game in Phoenix. And that has some manufacturers getting nervous. AriZona Iced Tea is going out of its way to let people know that it actually based in New York. “In 1992, two hard working guys from Brooklyn with a dream created AriZona Iced Tea,” the company said in a statement released yesterday. “Since then … we have remained loyal to our family-run business based in New York. For the last 16 years, our headquarters have remained on Long Island.” It seems comedian George Lopez made a joke about the brand on his late night TV show, and that the company has been inundated with complaints.

  1. I find your use of CAPS less than CONVINCING.

    Nice TRY though.

    • *slow clap*

  2. The state of ARIZONA does NOT even have to enforce this law everyday

    Actually, you should read Section 2 (A,G,J).

    Please read the SB1070 word for word. You will discover how genius of a law this is

    In what sense? In the sense that it allows police to arbitrarily arrest anyone they have 'reasonable suspicion' about just because they aren't carrying their papers? I was not able to determine from the bill what 'reasonable suspicion' constitutes. Practically, it requires anyone in the State of Arizona to carry citizenship documentation at all times. And, it also requires law enforcement officers to detain anyone who cannot produce these documents.

    I'm not sure how this qualifies it as a 'genius' law.

  3. Do people READ and UNDERSTAND the SB1070 word for word? It is a solid law. It is carefully crafted and a GENIUS law. A lot of things that opposing people talk about in this law is FALSE, HYPE, BASELESS, PROPAGANDA, SMEAR and a BUNCH OF LIES. The state of ARIZONA does NOT even have to enforce this law everyday and it will work.

    Read the intent of the law carefully. Arizona has no intention of deporting all illegal aliens. READ THE INTENT and discover what GENIUS of a law this is. I swear that Arizona will only have to probably do their everyday work like they are doing now like if the person committing a crime cannot provide a valid ID or DL, they check for immigration papers, this LAW will work like a charm. It is the MOST GENIUS law I had ever seen.

    Please read the SB1070 word for word. You will discover how genius of a law this is—- This law is a MASTERPIECE.

  4. i wonder why us canadians worry about what laws they enact in the usa ..if we didn't find the usa scary and mexico scarier we could have a north american union set up like they have in europe

  5. DO NOT Buy anything from AriZona, the new redneck state.
