All real Americans need to request one of their massive catalogs at cost to Udine, then promptly recycle them on arrival. Rinse repeat. Tell your friends. I get uline catalogs at work. As the supply-ordering person, I NEVER order from Uline. No sound is more satisfying than the “thud” I hear when their big, expensive, unopened catalog hits the bottom of the trash bin.

You know, I am strictly opposed to judging people on their looks. Strictly. Strictly, strictly, strictly.

Name and shame the DESTROYER of OUR CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY : Dick Uihlein founder of UlineShipping! Surprising no one ULine is now off my list We had a rep in to drop a catalog off where I work. The last page was a letter talking all kinds of right wing crazy. The catalog went right in the trash. My daddy calls him Penis Urine. Probably his most endearing quality is coming up with a good nickname.

But trickle down works… Shouldn't he be arrested for treason then? And his company NATIONALIZED? Is it possible the shipping issues worldwide might be him just trying to harm Biden? Kind of amazing that we’ve reached the point in our political discourse that “journalists” (aka - liberal activists) think that it’s “news” when someone makes financial contributions to conservative causes.

Hey, Uline, I’ve been buying shipping boxes, padded mailers, bubble wrap, tissue paper, acid free tissue paper and craft paper from you for my small business for years. I’m done now. U-line, a packing products giant, must be loving Amazon. They also love funding insurrectionists, apparently.

New Apple Leak Reveals Long Wait For New MacBook AirFans of Apple’s MacBook Air laptop may have to wait longer for an update sporting Apple's new design and faster chips.

Seems like more and more of the elite favor the right Funny that Is anyone aware of a good alternative to buy small boxes and bubble mailers in bulk from? Going to have to find a new source for my business unfortunately. *(ethnic heads in the nation’s shipping rooms spinning like Linda Blair’s in THE EXORCIST)*

What are the consequences for funding an organized attempt to overthrow the govt? The people who poured money into the BigLie are a disgrace, and completely undeserving of the success this country afforded them. Figured his company would allow pickups then if he’s in that camp. Had to take my business elsewhere bc they require you to ship even if you’re down the street.

Also placing his money on Wisconsin Sen Ron Johnson’s re-election campaign. I'm told private company's can do what they want... JJohnsonLaw Okeedokee. F Uline. Their catalogs will now go in the trash. Uline has made no bones about how Trumpy they are. (Their unwanted catalog gets crammed in my mailbox at least 2x/yr, & includes right-wing/MAGA screeds from the owners.) But they’re right-wing loyalists in good part because it benefits them financially.

Uline is the best!!!!

I won’t be doing any more business with this company. KeithOlbermann Wow, what a missed opportunity. If I had known this I could have sent Dick Uihlein a letter claiming I had evidence of dead people voting & made millions. 🤣🤣 Sad to see governmental institutions are contracting with seditionist Uihlein’s company. Northwestern University has been outed. Uline is in nearly every shipping room / warehouse THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE‼️

BanksResearcher Boycott Uline. I do. Yes, that is why my organization stopped purchasing from uline 10 years ago. F them. Dang it! I have to cancel my services with them. I really liked them

He clearly was named Dick for a reason.🤬 traitor. CC uline SaudiaPaige Lol. Yeah, I get the catalogues all the time, and they go straight into the recycling bin. Uhline makes boxes and containers for shipping and many other products for warehouse operations. Uline Dick is also an heir to the Schlitz brewing fortune.

who bankrolled the effort is a familiar name in GOP fundraising circles: Dick Uihlein, founder of the multinational Uline shipping company. According to previously unreported tax disclosures , Uihlein’s nonprofit—the Ed Uihlein Family Foundation—poured millions of dollars in 2020 into a sprawling number of groups connected to efforts to challenge Joe Biden’s victory and reimagine election law, as well as other right-wing extremist organizations, including ones designated as hate groups. And the money is pure Uihlein—the foundation’s $16.8 million in 2020 donations came exclusively from Dick Uihlein himself. And over the course of that pivotal year, the organization gave it all away. Kyle Herrig, president of left-leaning watchdog group Accountable.US, told The Daily Beast that money from Uihlein and his wife, Elizabeth, has “promoted hate and sedition.” “In 2020, as workers and families struggled to get by, Dick and Liz Uihlein’s company cashed in on pandemic aid —then turned around and funded hate groups pushing COVID conspiracy theories, bigotry, and efforts to undermine democracy,” Herrig said. “By signing away more than $1 million to groups that have promoted hate and sedition, Dick and Liz Uihlein have made it clear where their company’s values truly lie.” The full scope of the Uihlein’s anti-election and extremist funding is actually far more sweeping. According to the foundation’s latest tax filing, the supply chain mogul contributed more than $4 million to groups affiliated with efforts to overturn the election and other acts of far-right extremism. For instance, between January and May 2020, Uihlein contributed $1.25 million to the Conservative Partnership Institute, a right-wing think tank founded by former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) where Trump campaign attorney Cleta Mitchell was serving as senior legal fellow . Mitchell, a veteran GOP operative, helped construct the campaign’s post-election legal strategy mostly behind the scenes. But she drew national attention in early January 2021 after she featured heavily in a taped phone call between then-President Donald Trump, his Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and Georgia’s top election officials. Trump pressured the election officials in that now to “find” enough votes for him to win Georgia. (Meadows joined Mitchell at CPI after he left the White House in January.) This year, Uihlein dipped into his pockets again, this time for Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA), a Freedom Caucus member who is challenging Georgia’s Brad Raffensperger—the Republican official who resisted Trump’s pressure on that phone call—to oversee the state’s elections as secretary of state. But CPI was not the only legal architect to benefit from Uihlein money. The Federalist Society, arguably the country’s most powerful collective of conservative legal scholars and activists, saw its already ample bank account increase by $200,000. Scads of Federalist Society members pitched in to help corrode public trust in the election results—including John Eastman, who reportedly gamed out the White House’s constitutional putsch on Jan. 6. He also pushed $50,000 to the Texas Public Policy Forum, which in October 2020 collaborated with radical conservative think-tank the Claremont Institute on research into the constitutional viability of an election challenge road map that ran all the way through Inauguration Day. Another group to benefit from Uihlein’s largesse: the Center for Security Policy, which the Southern Poverty Law Center an anti-Muslim hate group, collected $750,000 from Uihlein’s foundation. The CSP was founded by
