FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Explosive outrage is being unleashed on a popular supermarket chain after it published a 2010 calendar marking the date of Dec. 7 with the Islamic New Year, while eliminating any mention of Pearl Harbor Day, commemorating the 1941 attack on the U.S. by Japan.

Does that mean we can run about madly bombing everyone and everything on that day? What a happy coincidence!

Another generation or two and Pearl Harbor will merely be a vacation spot.

Publix runs a tight ship, is conservative, and this is probably unintentional.

They have like 24 hours to fix this.

I got to be honest, I really can't get excited about this, I shop at a Publix about half the time for my groceries, I like the stores in my area, middle Tennessee. As far as how the stores are run in other areas of the country I do not know. My gut feelings is this calendar probably was contracted out and no one in the Publix management in charge of what ever department didn't notice it. I would rather shop from a store whose headquarters is in a red state or broader line red state then to shop at a store that is headquarter in a blue state. I'm not hard core on this principle, as I have many exceptions to it but I think you get the point. Not only do I not want my money going to those liberal states, but I find that some shopping chains that come from the hard core democratic controlled states/cities are poorly run and out of touch with the concept you get more sales with just having the cheapest price and moving inventory then just having gimmicks to get you in the store.

This is what happens when a Muslim becomes President of the United States.

9/11 is just another day to 80% of Americans.

No Islamic holiday is on any calendar that I own but Pearl Harbor AND VJ Day are. Kudos to Rhode Island for still celebrating it..at least they did the last time I checked.

I've never seen "Pearl Harbor Day" on a calendar. I don't think I've even heard of it. Is there a statutory basis for it, or a Presidential proclamation? (Other than the one issued on December 8, 1941.)

If we do have a Pearl Harbor Day, I want a Boston Massacre Day, a Maine Day, a Lusitania Day, and a 9/11 Day. Preferably all on Fridays. Maybe also a Bay of Pigs Day and an Iranian Embassy Day, just so we can remember and grieve over every defeat and disaster in our past. And of course every one of these must be printed on every calendar in America; failure to do so may result in the rage of local talk radio hosts.

Publix? LOL! I am sooo looking forward to Aldi of Germany who is coming into FL in a big way and will kicking overpiced Publix a*s hard.

I refuse to shop at Publix cause they employ surly third world immigrants like Haitians who goof off. I stopped shopping there when I lived near West Palm. I will shop at Target super center that employs American whites, blacks and some hispanics and they are usually very helpful. The new Aldi is even better.

Aldi is already here in Central Florida and opening locations in Southern Florida and other areas. Publix is way over priced.

Aldi sent Wal Mart packing in Germany because WM could not compete. Publix used to be a Baptist family operation but they have s**ked for years.

I will take German Aldi and their sister stores Trader Joes any day. Aldi is owned by the elderly Albrecht brothers who started it with their mom after WW2. They are Catholics and among the wealthiest people in Germany.

The muslim loving Publix execs in Lakeland, FL will be waking up in a cold sweat as more Aldi stores spread in Florida and I cannot wait. Aldi is just about unbeatable. Good luck Islamic Publix. Aldi will beat Publix like a red headed step child.

Publix is an outstanding grocery chain with courteous, motivated employees and conservative, responsible management. Publix is also non-union, and doesn't require me to register for a "spy card" in order to receive a fair price. Publix even closes for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter so its people can be with their families on those holidays -- and proudly advertises the fact.

I suspect that omitting "days of remembrance" from its calendars was quickly seen as a mistake by Publix -- as reflected in its lightning-fast decision to pull all of the calendars from its stores. Everybody makes mistakes, but the good ones correct theirs and learn from them. Publix is one of the very good guys.

I shop at Walmart mostly because of the cost, but my roommate does most of his shopping at Publix because he can't drive and rides his bike there. He goes shopping with me when I goto Walmart and I make the extra time to take him to Publix during the winter here and in doing so have been doing about a 1/3 of my grocery shopping. Out of the Publixes in this area I would say most if not all the employees are white Americans, because that is the majority population in this area and also those are the people who shop there. We have a Aldi in town but it is on the other side of town so I rarely have shop there.

well, I am offended by this, this makes my blood boil, and I really don’t care how much ‘Publix’ seems to be conservative.

It is little things like this that start down a road I don’t want to go down.

my grandmothers brother was at Pearl Harbor, the only reason he oulived his ship mates on the Arizona was because he got back to base late from shore leave.

Please, don’t excite yourself...we wouldn’t want you to hurt yourself by fretting over the remeberance of such an unimportant matter such as all those American deaths.

I thought Aldi sucked. Nothing I wanted to buy and the prices weren’t all that special.

Though I did shop at one in Germany frequently several years ago.

My only Aldi’s in town is a 1,000 sq.ft. building with 4 aisles. The only thing they sell is off-brand frozen turkeys, some sort of ham paste shaped in an oval to resemble a whole ham, frozen unknown brand ‘meals’ $5 for 10, lots of milk and stale 2 loaves of cheapo white bread for $1.

There is absolutely nothing else in this ‘store’. Gee, wonder why it’s void of customers.

Store in Westland, MI
No # available

Screw the Qur'an and the radical followers. May they wander in the desert of their domain and drink the sands of their origin instead of the gamblings casinos, buying of slaves in Africa and their sexual deviance.

I really desopise the way people and our newly elected president apologize and kow tow like he's one of them, if he IS one of them and doesn't call treason on Code Pink aiding and abetting, ACORN, the cronies at CAIR, stomping on the constitution and endeavoring to enslave WE THE PEOPLE into a taxed to death country

If he contiues to believe the alleged "lone wolfs" are not directed by the words of the Qur'an, the sheiks, mullahs , Imam's emir's etc then he better wake up because the Qur'an ain't the answer, and they ARE the enemy that started a religious war. I will NOT forget the 90's, the USS Cole, the African embassies blown, will not forget all thefallen in Iraq and Afghnistan( NOT by Christians, Hindus or Buddists, will NOT forget the train bombings in Spain, the terror in England the irrational assauly on a comic in the Netherlands, the riots in france, the endless wars in Sudan, israel, the full on attack of INNOCENT BLOOD all over especially and including 9/11! Screw the Qur'an and their radical followers. They don't like this country, go back to mecca and worship your black rock.

*whew* Now to go out to the range and exercise my second amendment right. Wonder if I could get a few of them there calendars or something else for paper targets.

I can’t see that picture without getting nauseous. What a disgusting, disgraceful, despicable, and degrading display.
