ProFlowers just announced on Facebook that it is dropping its advertising on Rush. DailyKos and others had been organizing a boycott of ProFlowers, which had held out until now. For full article here is the link:

Rush already has advertisers lining up around the block just to get a spot on his show.
He has nothing to lose except the losers.
Citrix Systems Inc.
ProFlowers other brands are
Cherry Moon Farms
Yeah, now that Breitbart conveniently died, Rush is next on their hit list.
Pro Flowers will not be sending any flowers for me. Especially to Barbra!
They feel the power now, and they will use it for this election. Stupid republicans got pulled into their trap, the same one they pull out every election year, SEX and woman's reproductive rights, it's her body and all that nonsense.
The Democrats live in the gutter, and don't understand why we don't,but the gutter rats are growing and there is almost no poison that will kill them, they have developed a taste for our disgust with them.
When will we learn? I can guarantee you that after this election it will all quiet down, but regurgitate once more in the next one. GUARANTEED and we fall for it.
Did AutoZone join the boycott?
I’ve heard conflicting answers.
As other have said, those liberals or 99%er's don't buy these products anyway.
Now to Limbaugh. By his apology he is showing that he doesnot pledge his life, his fortune or his sacred honor.
Amazing these crap places make profit enough to afford advertising.
Just goes to show the power of the Limbaugh show.
There will be plenty of companies to take their place.
Lucky you, I have 8 more months to fulfill my cable contract, then its cut.
ProFlowers is operated by Provide Commerce, which in turn is part of Liberty Interactive (which also operates Buy Seasons, Evite, gifts.com, and QVC), which is part of Liberty Media. Liberty Media owns about 16% of Barnes & Noble, and Provide Commerce is behind the online entities known as Cherry Moon Farms, Secret Spoon, Sharis Berries, Florist Express and RedEnvelope. Liberty Media, with the majority of voting shares owned by John C. Malone, made almost $11 billion bucks in 2010, with net earnings of almost $1.9 billiion.
Liberty Media also owns limited portions of over a dozen other entities. Liberty Capital, a division of Liberty Media, has financial interests in the Atlanta Braves, Overture Films, MacNeil/Lehrer Productions, Starz Media, TruePosition, Time Warner, Viacom and, Sirius XM Radio. Liberty also has financials interests in backcountry.com, bodybuilding.com, Expedia, Lockerz and Open TV.
Wish I had read your email, before I sent mine.
I think this t-shirt company will be a great replacement for advertising on Rush’s show.
Hey Jim, what you think? I believe you could find a lot of good employees right here, and may work cheap, just to show them. I like it, and people need jobs.
So ProFlowers has terminated their advertising on the Rush Limbaugh Show, millions of conservatives who can now boycotting ProFlowers!!
What do you FReepers say we start helping out Jim McCann of 1-800-FLOWERS dot COM? Wouldn’t it be a tribute to our efforts if we could show an appreciable ascent in their sales numbers, due to the metrosexual, limp wristed decision by ProFlowers!

Let’s also do this in memory of our conservative “Beacon of Light”, Andrew Breitbart!! Who’s with me?
www.livedrive.com instead of carbonite.
I emailed Pro Flowers:
You rejected both Rush’s 1st amendment rights and then his apology.
I shall no longer support your products and services.
Isn’t that the truth!
How many of us really need choc covered strawberries, sorry flowers, expensive air mattresses, etc., tc. But because we heard ads on Rush and ordered them?!
I, for one, am glad I never bought anything from Proflowers. I made the mistake of buying Sherrie’s Berries ONCE. Under the lovely decorative coatings the berries were green and unripe. Strawberries are NOT supposed to CRUNCH when you bite into them!
I bought Rush’s tea last night, canceled my Carbonite subscription today, and sent Rush an e-mail of support. And I will vote for Newt on Tuesday.
So DU finds out if one of Rush’s sponsers sell on Amazon and get them there too. http://www.amazon.com/LifeLock-Identity-Theft-Protection-Starter/product-reviews/B004KKSUS0/ref=cm_cr_dp_all_helpful?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending
Neo-fascism/neo-totalitarianism at it’s finest, using a staged socialist event as a pretext.
DEFUND socialist collectives, foreign and domestic (especially their enablers in corporate America), or we will all be enslaved by BIG GOVERNMENT/BIG MEDIA/BIG FINANCE/BIG CORP.
1984 on steroids. Why is this totalitarian template overshadowing the most “free” country in the history of civilization?
“Fundamental transformation” moments we are living in. A coup is taking place in the republic.
DEPOPULATE socialists/totalitarians from the body politic.
I can’t wait until tomorrow to give these companies a piece of my mind! I have already emailed them but I am so po’d I need to tell them in person what I think of them.
My Carbonite subscription is up in 29 days and I will not be renewing. I plan on writing them a note telling them if they would censor free speech then they can’t be trusted with my data.
Good all over you. I’ll be sure not to use or by any of those goods and services also.
I agree!!! I was surprised to see that ProFlowers (a Hannity sponsor too) dropped him.
I would like a running list of Rush sponsors that drop him so I can NEVER buy from them again.
Check out what they did to proflowers on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Dozen-Rainbow-Roses-FREE-Chocolates/product-reviews/B004K68LCO/ref=cm_rdphist_1?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&filterBy=addOneStar
Are you sure Sherries Berries cut advertising from Rush? We need a master list.
Neo-fascism/neo-totalitarianism at its finest, using a staged socialist event as a pretext. Mini-Reichstag moment. Watch for many more to come. OWS anyone?
Good on you. I don’t use any of these products, but guess I could email them anyway and voice my disgust.
that site for Pro Flowers will not accept emails...must be getting a lot....so here is an additional address...
I own a florist and 2 other businesses and I advertise all 3 during Rush’s local radio show. By the way order flowers locally not thru the 800 #’s.
Citrix Systems Inc.
ProFlowers other brands are
Cherry Moon Farms

Used Proflowers several years ago, bought flowers for my grandmother’s funeral. Don’t plan to use Proflowers in the future. They were the only company among this list I ever did business with. I don’t use Carbonite. I have my own file backup system in place. Most people don’t bother, but I do. External drives are relatively inexpensive, and backing up is relatively easy these days. There’s no reason more people could be doing it themselves.
They opted in exactly because his listeners could afford to purchase their products. In fact, I am sure they were on a waiting list of sponsors.
I hope they recognize and pay what they have done to themselves by their actions.
The Rush Limbaugh show has made a fortune for these companies, even the very small ones just starting out. Can't remember now what the name of that drink, but Rush sold that product and the company did very well.
Shari’s Berries IS Proflowers.
We are all saying pretty much what the Catholic bishops have finally said: “We will not submit.”
We order all of our flowers locally. A way to keep business local and help the town survive. These conglomerates don’t care about any of us only the $ and bow to political pressure at the drop of a hat (by freaking CHEAP liberals, no less).
At least I can tell a local business to go to hell face to face...lol.
Another alternative: You could get an external terabyte drive and just do it yourself.
Ironically, I will now boycott ProFlowers.
Funny how this works.
I have a nephew in college using Sugar Sync. Works great...you are continually being backed up if you are internet connected. Works with Mac too. They also have a free version that backs up 5 gigabytes
Alternative to Carbonite:
2 can play this game. DEFUND Obamerica. Collapse this POS totalitarian punk’s ecomony. It takes money to fund this socialist bs. Our money. We who work/spend. Stop spending for everything, except the absolutely essentials. These progressive parasites cannot survive without we the productive.
From now, right now until election...STOP SPENDING (I’ve got more money than I’ve had in several years because of cutting back spending during Barry’s tenure). Join the fight against socialists. Go mini-galt. The “useful idiots” will spend no matter who is in charge. We can affect the change we need with our checkbooks/debit cards. It’s war by other means.
Wake up FReedom lovers. Now to November. (It’s easy)
DEFUND socialism. It dies.
Lucky for you that you also didn’t find half a worm.
