In Memoriam Senator Edward Kennedy

August 26, 2009

On this very sad day in the history of America, we witness the death of a great Senator, fine husband, father and friend to blue collar Americans.

You may disagree with his politics, but you cannot diminish his leadership and actions to help those less fortunate than himself.  In this world that speaks loudly of courage and conviction…qualities many men in America do not have.

Now God has you near his right hand, sir.  May you rest in peace. Amen.

CLOROX Corporation Pulls Away from Glenn Beck

August 20, 2009

Clorox Corporation (Brita’s parent company), pulls Glenn Beck’s advertisements.

August 20, 2009

This is in response to your recent communication regarding Clorox Company advertising. Thank you for contacting us, we very much appreciate hearing from consumers as The Clorox Company remains committed to quality broadcasting. We pride ourselves in being a responsible advertiser and have established long-standing and strict standards for the selection of television programming. Per our standards, we do not advertise in programs that display exploitive sex or violence; treat ethnic, religious or political groups in a disparaging manner; present facts inaccurately or distort them to blatantly partisan advantage; and treat individuals or groups in a demeaning manner.

Clorox holds true to our advertising standards and we hold true to our nation’s heritage of free expression of political opinions. However, consistent with our standards, we do not want to be associated with inflammatory speech used by either liberal or conservative talk show hosts. After a comprehensive review of political talks shows across the spectrum, at this time we have made a decision not to advertise on political talk shows.

Today’s television programming environment is extremely challenging for responsible advertisers. However, The Clorox Company will continue to exercise special care in all program and station selection. We do not want to support programming that is in conflict with our programming standards.

Thank you again for taking the time to contact us.

Sincerely, Tracy Wise Consumer Response Representative Consumer Services

Success in BOYCOTTING GLENN BECK’S Sponsors

August 20, 2009

Yee Haw! Talk about free enterprise in motion!! Just take a look at the sponsors who have withdrawn their advertisements from Glenn Beck’s show.  I give credit to the patriotic Americans who believe that evil MUST obliterated and that any whack-job that incites violence against our beloved President should see consequences. Members of my family have not given their lives in military service to our Country to have crazies provoke marginal, pathetic people to act violently against the highest officer of our Country.

I commend these fine American companies who refuse to be drawn into the gutter of hatred and violence!  I give credit to these patriotic Americans who wrote emails, letters and made phone calls to encourage these companies not to encourage hatred, venom and violence.   KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Chickenshit “sarah_hcopterwife@yahoo.com”

August 11, 2009

A true chickenshit is someone who posts a comment on a site when they disagree, but they’re too cowardly and embarrassed to allow feedback or a response.

There fore, Mrs. “Sarah_hcopterwife@yahoo.com” I am not posting your comment.  Normally, I would.  But since your are a coward (and I am presuming your patriot husband IS NOT), I hope someone who knows you Googles your email address and lets you know your true character has emerged online as a CHICKENSHIT.

Are PALIN’S TROUBLES just beginning??

August 5, 2009

Aw, Sarah…you only THOUGHT that resigning as Governor of Alaska would end your troubles with ethics violations and investigations.  HA, HA!  Fooled you!  Somehow, those rotten fish guts just keep following you around (the violations of ethics, I mean).

In yesterday’s Anchorage Daily News we learn that the truth about the discounts afforded to Todd Palin’s Arctic Cat business for sponsorships will NOT remain secret with the Alaska Public Offices Commission. Darn it! Sarah thought she could keep those perks a  secret, eh?  Not so.

In one lingering issue, the Alaska Public Offices Commission has refused Palin’s request to keep secret the discounts that come from her husband’s Arctic Cat sponsorship. APOC also said Palin needs to disclose all the gifts she received last year, rejecting her interpretation that she doesn’t need to until after she gets around to actually opening the gifts.

Palin has told APOC “there are boxes of unopened mail at this point, even mail that was delivered in 2008.” http://www.adn.com/palin/story/888057.html

Well, hell, now that she’s not the  Gov anymore, who will be the lackey to actually OPEN her mail and READ it!?!

This woman, Sarah Palin, is a joke.  She continues to make me laugh. More to come, I’m sure.  She can’t ever keep her mouth shut so she’ll have some sort of Twitter or nonsense to spout. And I’ll keep on laughing when they lock her up for the violations that will finally surface.
