Once upon a time, people were permitted and encouraged to hold opinions. I honestly don’t think GLAAD speaks for the right or the left in this country, but the left are far more fearful of the attack dogs. This action was disrespecting Christians or the right, but was disrespectful of Phil Robertson and all of America.
The Dixie who?
Had a troll show up expressly to defend them.
Handle was “horsewhisper”.
When called on his bs, he lied.
Finally got the zot after awhile.
I do recall that their remake of Landslide was being played quite a bit on the radio. After those stupid comments, I never heard their version of Landslide again. I only hear the Fleetwood Mac version (which I love).
I haven’t watched Duck Dynasty. I do not know if anyone in our household watches any A&E shows. So it will be hard to boycott them.
I love the headline....
Remember the online backup service Carbonite? The one that used to advertise on the Rush Limbaugh show? The one that cancelled their sponsorship of Rush when he called Sandra Fluke a “slut” when she demanded to get birth control for free (paid for by other people)?
Ever wonder how that worked out?
From Wikipedia[Carbonite(online backup)]
...On 4 Feb 2013, Carbonite announced that its net loss for the full year 2012 was ($18.9) million, compared to ($23.5) million in 2011. Since its inception in 2005, NASDAQ:CARB has lost in excess of ($120,000,000) of public and private investment. The company’s SEC financial reports state: “We do not expect to be profitable for the foreseeable future.”
