    The Lockheed Martin Corp. is cutting ties with the Boy Scouts of America because the group does not allow gay Scout leaders, officials told the MDJ on Wednesday. “While we applaud the mission of the Boy Scouts and the good things they do in our communities, their policies that discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and religious affiliation conflict with Lockheed Martin policies,” said Lockheed spokesman Gordon Johndroe. The reference to “religious affiliation” has to do with the Boy Scouts’ ban on atheist members.

    Yes, that would be the US Department of Agriculture, which is supposed to promote agriculture. Agriculture includes cattle ranching as well as farming (and dairies!). One of the most significant duties of the USDA is to rate the quality of meat so that consumers can be sure they’re eating healthy food. So why did the USDA send out a message to its employees discouraging the consumption of meat, using United Nations material? Senator Jerry Moran, a Republican who represents cattle-ranch-heavy Kansas, asked that question on the floor of the Senate yesterday:

None of the states requires notifying the workers, whose withholdings are treated as taxes they paid. General Electric, Goldman Sachs, Procter & Gamble, Chrysler, Ford, General...

Hoenig, one of the Fed’s most outspoken internal critics, warned monetary policy should be tailored “so you don’t overshoot and cause the next crisis.” The maverick Fed official was also sharply critical of the regulatory overhaul passed last July, saying the risks to the U.S. economy from the largest financial institutions are even worse following the approval of the Dodd-Frank law.

    Officials with the National Football League's Licensing Department removed jerseys from the Laurel Mall store where an autograph session involving four Philadelphia Eagles players was abruptly canceled Saturday, according to the store owner's wife. "The licensing department came in and took some jerseys," Eva Argo said Monday. "They took jerseys that people had sent to us - vendors and customers. No charges have been filed, as far as I know." However, there is "an ongoing, joint investigation under way" by Pennsylvania State Police and Immigration and Customs Enforcement into The Sports Scene, according to Frank Medvesky, a spokesman for the...

    Via Red State, I find disturbing audio of California Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina, speaking in glowing terms about Jesse Jackson, who she did work with while at Hewlett Packard. Here's what she had to say: "And I thought about something that the Reverend Jesse Jackson said to me several years ago. He very graciously came to the offices of Hewlett Packard to visit me, because we were doing some work together for his Rainbow Coalition. And he said to me, 'You know, Carly, every game is better when everybody gets to play.' And I thought it was such a...

    The ex-gay movement is gaining momentum. Last week Greg Quinlan, a former homosexual and one of the leaders of PFOX (Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays), gave a powerful speech before the PepsiCo Board of Directors at the at the Pepsi's shareholders meeting. Greg told PepsiCo to stop funding homosexual activists groups that promote hate against people like him and organizations like PFOX. PepsiCo is one of the nation's major funders of the radical homosexual movement. In particular, they fund PFLAG, which is a hardcore group that organizes across the country in liberal churches and also targets children in...

    With about 1,700 stores spread across 49 states, the talent-acquisition team at Target might say it's difficult to recruit underrepresented groups in regions where whites are the majority—especially at its headquarters in Minneapolis. They don't. In fact, women, Blacks, Latinos and associates from other underrepresented groups made up 22 percent of Target's nearly 28,000 salaried positions in the United States last year. That's because Alicia Petross, diversity team talent manager at Target (No. 40 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity® list), and her staff take a methodical approach to talent acquisition that ensures the company attracts the best...

    President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats are promising a climactic clash with Wall Street, but there’s a complication in their battle plan: The Democratic Party is closer to corporate America — and to Wall Street in particular — than many Democrats would care to admit. Former White House counsel Greg Craig has just signed on as an institutional Sherpa for Goldman Sachs, the iconic financial firm facing fraud charges from the Securities and Exchange Commission. Former House Democratic leader Dick Gephardt lobbies for Goldman Sachs, Visa and the coal industry. Former Senate Democratic leader Tom Daschle — Obama’s first choice...

    Hi folks, I’m sure some of you can help me out with this problem: My jerk boss has appointed me to help collect donations for the United Way, and there’s really not a way out of it. I was hoping to collect information related to the wonderful things they do, like misuse of charitable funds, black listing the Boy Scouts because they wouldn’t allow homosexual men to take boys on overnight camping trips, etc. Does anyone have more info that might be helpful in me driving my unit’s pledge total to $0 this year?

    Money from pharmaceutical firms and health care companies is dirty, evil, and corrupting – except when key members of Team Obama are pocketing it. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs derides grass-roots opponents of socialized health care as industry-funded lackeys with questionable motives and conflicts of interest. But what about the corporate shills at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? Two weeks ago, the White House embraced $150 million in drug industry ads supporting Obamacare. This week, Bloomberg News reported that White House senior adviser and chief campaign strategist David Axelrod’s former public relations firm, AKPD Message and Media, has raked in some $24...
