  • Drivers claim Pennsylvania Turnpike toll hikes are 'highway robbery'

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | March 30, 2018 | Debra Erdley
    Elizabeth Zemba of Mt. Pleasant, a daily Pennsylvania Turnpike traveler, turned to art and creativity to express frustration with the highway's ever-rising tolls. She created an Internet meme. A photo of a turnpike tollbooth is overlaid with the logo: "Pennsylvania Turnpike re-inventing highway robbery since 2009." For many, annual turnpike toll increases simply have become too much to bear. Two weeks ago, a coalition of truckers and motorists advocates filed a class action suit against the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, PennDOT and Gov. Tom Wolf, seeking to recoup "excessive fees" that went to underwrite projects other than the operation of the...

    Drunk on his media-infused power, Parkland, Fla., high school student David Hogg has taken to targeting individual companies for advertising on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” setting his sights on Arby’s. I hope they’ve stocked up on beef. A number of companies have pulled advertising from Ingraham’s show in response to a tweet Wednesday from the Fox News host about how Hogg “whines” online over being rejected by four colleges. The 17-year-old high school student, working in tandem with George Soros-backed Media Matters, called for a boycott after Ingraham’s tweet, sharing a list of her main advertisers online. (With...
  • Boycotts Against NRA Have Backfire Effect, Galvanize Conservatives

    The liberal campaign against the NRA has successfully pressured some companies to sever their partnerships with the gun rights group but it’s having another, unintended effect: galvanizing conservatives who feel the NRA has been unfairly attacked. Liberal activist groups turned the NRA into a scapegoat for the Florida school shooting that left 17 people dead and immediately launched a pressure campaign meant to weaken the NRA, which touts itself as the nation’s longest-standing civil rights organization. Liberals have threatened boycott campaigns against companies like FedEx, for having discount partnerships with NRA members. On that front, the activists have had some...

    Michael Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action is urging Amazon, Apple, and YouTube to cut ties with NRATV. DirectTV, AT&T, Google, and Roku are also being pressured to make the break. According to Huff Post, Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts released a statement saying, “NRATV is home to the NRA’s most dangerous and violence-inciting propaganda. It’s time for tech leaders to acknowledge their role in helping the NRA spread this dangerous content and cut it out.” She added, “We demand that Apple, Amazon, AT&T’s DIRECTV, Google and Roku all dump NRATV once and for all.” Brad Chase is friends with the...

    Is fame giving delusions of grandeur to David Hogg, the Parkland student who’s become a media celebrity as an advocate of more gun control? During a long interview with Joy Reid on her MSNBC show today, Hogg at one point looked directly into the camera and said that in contrast with several other companies that had offered discounts to NRA members: “FedEx still has not dropped their deal with the NRA. The CEO is one of the biggest donors to the NRA. And we have to take care of them. And as a result, if they aren’t going to, we’re...

    In general, you arrive in an open conflict situation in one of three ways. Someone unexpectedly comes after you, someone you were expecting to come after you does so or you decide to to go after someone yourself. The term conflict situation as used here covers all the sins; interpersonal strife, business rivalry, trade wars and plain old war, but the essential rules of them all are the same. In the first case, it’s a failure of perception on your part as to the aggressor’s true intentions and all that can be done is something along the lines of the...

    On February 2, retail chain Nordstrom announced that they would drop Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, which sparked major controversy to whether the decision was political, based on her father’s presidency. Nordstrom said the choice was based on the performance of the brand. Actor Scott Baio, a supporter of President Trump, and his family have more than $30,000 last year at Nordstrom, but since the store decided to drop Ms. Trump’s brand, he says he is no longer willing to shop at the retailer. Baio also fired back at liberals who are boycotting stores that sell Trump merchandise.

    Six weeks ago, Ivanka Trump was sitting with her husband and their three young children aboard a commercial JetBlue flight departing from JFK airport. Another passenger, Brooklyn employment attorney Daniel Goldstein, approached her and began screaming taunts. ‘Your father is ruining the country!’ he bellowed, as he held his own baby in his owns. Then he screamed at JetBlue staff. ‘Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private!’ Goldstein’s husband, a Hunter College professor named Matthew Lasner, tweeted gleefully from the plane seconds before the incident: ‘Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing...

    L.L. Bean likes to stay out of politics, but a donation by a member of the Bean family is putting the retailer on the defensive. The Maine-based company issued a statement late Sunday after being targeted for boycott for alleged ties to Republican President-elect Donald Trump. The founders of the hashtag #GrabYourWallet included Bean on the list after The Associated Press reported that L.L. Bean’s granddaughter, Linda Bean, contributed $60,000 to a political action committee supporting Trump. The donation exceeded the PAC’s contribution limit...

    Inauguration performances use to be an honor, a celebration of America’s unique electoral system. But the media has reduced this year’s to a B-list side gig that only desperate artists would dare to play at. When news broke that popular blind tenor Andrea Bocelli would be singing at Trump’s inauguration, people took to social media and started a push to punish him for showing any support for the President-elect. Now, one month before the event, Bocelli has decided the performance isn’t worth the backlash. Twitter users adopted the #boycottbocelli hashtag to show their horror that a well-respected artist would dare...

    BDS Flounders Amid String of Humiliating Defeats How anti-BDS legislation has neutered the group and hampered its ability to function. May 31, 2016 Ari Lieberman    It’s been a really bad month for the anti-Semitic BDS movement, a strange alliance of radical leftists and Islamists who advocate the destruction of Israel through economic and cultural boycotts.  The hate group suffered a number of major setbacks in recent weeks. Some of these reversals represent mere moral victories but others have far reaching consequences that may well spell doom for BDS’s future operations and ability to function.  In May, the Strasbourg-based...

    Advocates of traditional family values are calling for a boycott of Target in response to the retail giant's announcement that they allow transgender people to use the restroom and dressing room that aligns with their preferred gender identity. The other way of saying this is that grown men have unrestricted and no-questions-asked access to bathrooms designated for women and girls. Via their website, Target announced, "[W]e welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity. …Everyone deserves to feel like they belong." Critics allege that this move is less...

Yes and NoBottom line: There are no aborted embryonic or fetal cells in any of PepsiCo’s final products.But: Aborted cells are used in the development of artificial flavor enhancers by biotech company Senomyx, with which PepsiCo signed a four-year, $30 million agreement in 2010 for research and development.
