  • New Washington Redskins ad: Some Native Americans like our name, you know

    A palate cleanser via Time, which notes that the “Redskins Facts” site is behind this and that the team itself is apparently behind “Redskins Facts.” (The anti-Redskins ad that inspired this rebuttal is also embedded below for context.) This is really just a taste of what they’ve got cooking; go to their YouTube account and you’ll find interviews with individual Native Americans defending the name. It’s an understandable counterattack — if your critics claim you’re victimizing a group, the natural response is to find members of the group who don’t feel victimized — but realistically we’re past the point...

    Sometimes, you just have to be honest enough to admit when you need help. I am finally willing to admit defeat in my war against the on-going squirrel/mouse/vole/gopher apocalypse, and start a search for highly qualified, experienced SEAL/Green Beret/Ranger/ Pararescue barn cats. My front yard looks like the post Shock and Awe postcards from Baghdad, and there are more tunnels than the Viet Cong dug. The sound of rodent laughter keeps me awake at night.

    This new ad by Newt's Super PAC is a very powerful reminder of the disaster that is Obama. I think it's well worth watching and circulating "liberally". It would be nice if it could be effectively distilled into a 30 second version for TV, but it would likely be difficult to maintain the impact. The American Decline

    When Media Matters helped organize the Stop Rush boycott pressuring corporations to pull advertisements from Rush Limbaughs show, the online file storage company Carbonite was one of the first big names to give in. Now, as William Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog noted, Carbonites CEO David Friend conceded on a conference call that dropping Limbaugh deeply hurt the companys earnings. It turned out to be a bigger hole in our revenue than we had thought when we initially did this, Friend said on a conference call on August 1. In fact, as Jacobson wrote, Carbonites 2nd Quarter 2012 results...

Washington-based United Coalition of Reason filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Arkansas group in June after the transit authority and its advertising agency rejected The transit...

    A new Kia ad is raising eyebrows-with some even saying that it promotes pedophilia. The ad, which promotes a dual-zone climate control feature in one of Kia's cars, took home the Silver Press Lion at the prestigious Cannes Lion Awards. But it is controversial, to say the least. The ad features a teacher lusting after his elementary school-aged student. On one side of the page, she appears as a young girl. On the other side, though, she becomes a scantily clad, buxom teen, seemingly as a product of the teacher's imagination.

    Some people who need medical care but can't afford it go to the emergency room. Others just hope they'll get better. James Richard Verone robbed a bank. Earlier this month, Verone (pictured), a 59-year-old convenience store clerk, walked into a Gaston, N.C., bank and handed the cashier a note demanding $1 and medical attention. Then he waited calmly for police to show up. He's now in jail and has an appointment with a doctor this week. Verone's problems started when he lost the job he'd held for 17 years as a Coca Cola deliveryman, amid the economic downturn. He found...

The bills announced by Senate Republicans also took a far broader approach than the House proposals and included a grab bag of initiatives. The Senate bills would open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska for drilling and direct royalty monies on those lands to "renewable energy development," according to a summary of the legislation distributed by...

    CNBC "Squawk Box" co-hosts Joe Kernen and Becky Quick get it. Unfortunately, their CNBC colleague that covers Washington, D.C. for the network doesn't. On the Jan. 22 broadcast, Harwood appeared on the program to give a status report on the current version of health care reform being negotiated in Congress and what it means in the aftermath of Scott Brown's filibuster-proof busting election victory in Massachusetts on Jan. 20. Kernen suggested that the health care bill might have been forced through if not Brown's election and the public fervor it revealed. "I think it's unbelievable that it would have gone...

    BLOWING smoke rings as she lies back in bed with seven semi-naked dwarves tucked alongside, it's Snow White like you've never seen before. Now this risque version of the fairytale favourite, renamed "Ho White" to promote a local beer, has drawn the wrath of Disney. The Jamieson's Raspberry Ale campaign, launched by brewers The Foundry online this week, features an adults-only take on the fairytale character, with dwarves named Filthy, Smarmy and Randy replacing Sleepy, Happy and Doc.
  • Getting rid of expanding advertisements on web sites

    Bill Ingram (Me) (Myself) & (I)
    I spend much of my time trying to read news articles and visit various web sites that have these new (expanding) advertisements. Some have click out boxes others do not. I spend a lot of time trying various techniques to get rid of those ads so that I can read the articles I am researching. Is there some technique to make them disappear? Better yet - Is there someone who one can complain to to get rid of that style of ad? Many are subscription only and I see no reason to subscribe just to complain that I can't read...

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) Fast food giant Burger King apologized Tuesday for an advertisement featuring a squat Mexican draped in his country's flag next to a tall American cowboy and said it would change the campaign. Mexico's ambassador to Spain said posters released in Europe for Burger King's new Tex-Mex style "Texican whopper," a cheeseburger with chile and spicy mayonnaise, inappropriately displayed the Mexican flag, whose image is protected under national law. The ambassador wrote a letter complaining to Burger King and requested the ad campaign be discontinued. Burger King said the ads were meant to show a mixture of...

    Back in '86, W.R. Grace, a multi-national chemical and everything else company, paid Oscar-winning director Ridley Scott to direct a commercial about Grace's concern for rising deficits. The commercial was made, but when WR Grace tried to buy airtime on the networks, they were refused. Isn't it interesting that no one brings up this commercial in the Age of Obama and it's only been seen 3,000 or so times on YouTube?

    There's a new front in the conflict between Jew and Muslim: Broward County Click here for restaurant inspection reports buses. Fifty of the county's 290-bus fleet have been chugging around area streets for the past several weeks with a message that might seem more oblique than inflammatory. Black letters on a white backdrop proclaim, "ISLAM: The Way of Life of Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad." The $60,000 ad was paid for by the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "We owe it to our fellow Americans to let them know that Islam stands for peace," said Altaf Ali, director of CAIR's South...

    I recall reading that a Union soldier, observing his comrades fleeing in wide-eyed panic from the "rebel yell" at Chancellorsville said his former unit resembled "close-packed ranks rushing like legions of the damned."
