  • Cashless Society Alert: Visa Will Be Giving Up To $500,000 To Restaurants That Go ‘100% Cashless’

    The push toward a cashless society is becoming more of a shove. Before today I had never heard of “The Visa Cashless Challenge”, but after reading about it I have to say that I am quite alarmed. Visa is trying to “encourage” businesses to go cashless, and one of the ways that they will be doing this is by “awarding up to $500,000 to 50 eligible US-based small business food service owners who commit to joining the 100% cashless quest”. The food industry is still one of the last bastions where cash is used very heavily, and so it makes...

    It must stop NOW! The only way to fight these people is by hurting them where it counts. They must be punished. Please, call all the sponsors who have dropped the Rush Limbaugh Show as an advertising vehicle. BE BREITBART Please CALLL THEM AND TELL THEM HOW YOU FEEL. This does two things. 1) It gives them valuable feed back about how their customers and potential customers feel about their disrespect of free speach rights. 2) It clogs up their phone and E-Mail causing them to lose serious income in the process.

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Portland man is urging people to boycott the Boy Scout Christmas tree recycling program to challenge the organization's position on gay rights. Richard Kuhns posted flyers throughout the Laurelhurst neighborhood where he lives, complaining of the Boy Scouts’ national stance against gays. Local Boy Scout leaders said the tree recycling program has traditionally been one of their biggest yearly fund-raisers. Boy Scouts of America issued a statement Thursday that said in part, "The BSA recognizes that some do not agree with its position on this single issue, but values the freedom of everyone to express their...

    Many a fake doctor has brought about the death of a patient. But one does not have to be a member of the medical profession to fraudulently pretend to have a remedy for one or another shortcoming in a particular body. The body politic has always had, and will have, false messiahs, men, and lately also women, who profess to have the answer to a nation's, or even the world's, ills. In the United Kingdom, such incidents are not rare. We even find them in our Trades Union, where a few misguided left-wing activists are trying to poison and brainwash...

    UPDATE: Snickers parent company Mars has pulled the anti-homosexual ads it was hosting on its website—expressing regret and saying it will never air them again. # Earlier: Snickers aired an ad during the Super Bowl that featured two men reacting in violent disgust after accidentally kissing while eating a candy bar. While the ad may be a satirical dig at homophobes, the candy company appeared to affirm an anti-gay message on its website—where there were, until a few hours ago, videos of NFL players grimacing in similar disgust at the kiss. (Message to viewers: Manly men should be disgusted by...

  • Pro-family groups claim boycott success

    Claiming success, pro-family groups called off a boycott on Procter & Gamble that was prompted by the Cincinnati-based corporation's "support for the homosexual agenda." The American Family Association, with backing from Focus on the Family and others, garnered nearly 400,000 signatures on a pledge to stop buying some of the corporation's signature products, including Crest toothpaste. "Judging by all we found in our research, it appears that our concerns have been addressed," said Donald Wildmon, AFA's chairman. Based on AFA's monitoring, Wildmon said P&G has stopped sponsoring homosexual Internet sites and TV programs such as "Will and Grace." According to...

    Stand firm against the United States? Try—not too hard—to make friends again? France's leaders are divided, and debating THE further the Americans and British have got mired in Iraq, the harder it has become for the French to conceal their sense that their opposition to the war has been vindicated. So far, despite lingering bitterness at their treatment by George Bush's team, Jacques Chirac's have put on an air of studied non-triumphalism, and a public tone of reconciliation. Franco-American difficulties “have been essentially superficial,” said the president in his usual July 14th television interview, saying the media had exaggerated them....

    BORDEAUX Something was missing from the country's largest wine fair here last week, and it was not just the air conditioning in one of the exhibition halls (where temperatures rose so high, corks popped). The usual contingent of American wine merchants were mostly absent, confirming to many in the trade fair's bottle-filled booths that American ill will over France's opposition to the war in Iraq has bruised more than egos. French wine exports to the United States, which was once French winemakers' most promising market and is now one of their greatest competitors, are going down the drain. "It's clear...

    French wine producers feel squeeze of U.S. boycott By Claude Cannellas BORDEAUX, France, June 25 — Calls to boycott French products during the transatlantic spat over Iraq contributed to a slump in U.S. sales of French wines, which were down by about a quarter from last year, wine merchants said. With the weak dollar also weighing, flagging sales to the United States left an air of gloom over the Vinexpo wine fair in Bordeaux, which a warm handshake between French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin and U.S. Ambassador Howard Leach could not lift.

    Belgian foreign minister Louis Michel said Sunday the European Union (EU) should reconsider its trade relations with Israel after Prime Minister Ariel Sharon barred an EU delegation from meeting with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. "Naturally this was an affront. The EU should give a diplomatic and political answer," Michel told the VRT network on Sunday, according to AP. He said the 15 EU foreign ministers should review at their next meeting on April 15th the possibility of suspending the association council, which regulates economic relations between the EU and Israel or recalling their ambassadors for consultations. Last Thursday, an EU...
