Arby's Is Messing with the Wrong Slice of America
The Atlantic Wire ^ | April 6, 2012 | John Hudson

On Wednesday, Arby's inflamed the conservative blogosphere with the announcement on Twitter that it will no longer advertise on Rush Limbaugh's show. Big mistake. The statement probably would've blown over, like all the rest of them, but Arby's moves following the announcement have awakened a sleeping giant. Shortly after its statement, the Arby's Twitter account went on a rampage blocking users who disagreed with the franchise, as Twitchy reported:

Their big mistake was even publicizing this whole dumb decision, S. Buying time *around Rush* wouldn’t be any big deal - I’m sure others do it, too - but using a “social website” crutch to publicize it, was definitely a bad PR move. No sympathy from me on that blunder.

"Alas, I gave up all "fast food" and alcohol/mixers over 1½ years ago"

Good for you. If that is what is best for you that is great.

72 here, 8 beers a day, little fast food and lots of frozen fish.
Weight no problem.
I do understand that fast food is not good for you so I try and watch it. Throw away half the bun garbage.

Your point is made, we all have to adjust to our specific bodies. Now give me a beer, liquid food.

My hubby told me that they also pulled their ads from Dana Loesch's radio show.

Even though ARby’s is acting very “stupidly”, the TSA is still Too Stupid for Arby’s. So long, suckers. No Arby’s for me, you are easily replaced.

Roark is a francise operator. They don’t own any of those companies.
