  • Adrian Peterson Suspension Shows Vikings, NFL Care About One Thing: Cash

    The Bleacher Report ^ | 9/17/14 | Mike Freeman
    The announcement from the Vikings came at about 2 a.m. Gutless Standard Time. That means it took the team about 14 hours to cave from public pressure. "Cave" is the wrong word. Cower, run, scamper, bolt, run frantically and chickens--t might be better. In one moment, the Vikings were saying that Adrian Peterson deserved due process. In the next, he was effectively suspended. I'd have more respect for the team if it stuck by its wrongheaded stance. Instead, the Vikings basically said: We stand by Adrian Peterson and will let due process play out...ah hold on, sponsors are pulling out....

    Daily Caller ^ | 4/3/13 | Greg Campbell
    Colorado Rep. Diana DeGette, the lead Democratic sponsor of a federal bill to ban high-capacity magazines, is apparently unaware that such magazines can be reloaded and reused, according to a comment she made at a Denver Post-sponsored forum on gun control on Tuesday. When asked how limiting the number of bullets in magazines would help reduce violence, she replied: “I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now, they’re going to shoot them. So if you ban them in the future, the number of these high-capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over...

    NASHUA, NH (CBS) – A Nashua Chick-Fil-A restaurant will be sponsoring New Hampshire Pride Fest. Ryan Manseau, the senior director of Pride Fest, told WBZ-TV he was handing out fliers at the Pheasant Lane Mall recently to promote his event and noticed a man who appeared to be a Chick-Fil-A manager holding one. . . Manseau said he approached the man, bracing for a verbal confrontation. He turned out to be the franchise operator, Anthony Piccola, who agreed to help sponsor the event and to serve Chick-Fil-A sandwiches there.

    Terms of the five-year deal, announced in Shanghai on Thursday, were not disclosed. GM is hoping to piggyback on Manchester United's fan base of an estimated 659 million people to boost its Chevy brand, especially in such growing Asian car markets as China, where the soccer club has 108 million fans. "If our aspirations are to build global icon status for Chevrolet ... soccer far and away is the world's biggest sport," Paul Edwards, GM executive director of global marketing strategy, said in an interview. "Manchester United stands head and shoulders above the other teams in terms of scale, brand...
  • Limbaugh rocks

    As readers know, I have no pecuniary interest in the Rush Limbaugh show, which I seldom have the chance to listen to, although I do read his transcripts from time to time. About 20 million Americans do listen at least once a month and good for him. He earned it. This slut controversy is costing him some big bucks in the short term, but in the long term he will prevail. My prediction: On January 21, 2013, Barack Obama will be out of the White House and Rush Limbaugh will be on the radio.
  • Vitacost (dropped Limbaugh sponsor) backpedaling already?

    03/06/2012 3:32:38 PM PST · by NewJerseyJoe · 55 replies
    Vitacost dropped Rush Limbaugh as a sponsor yesterday. Seems that the company is already trying to backpedal after receiving tons of negative feedback. Yesterday's message: We’d like to address an issue with our radio ads -- one of which aired on the Rush Limbaugh radio show. To put it frankly, Mr. Limbaugh's recent comments have been unsettling, and many of our fans have voiced concern that Vitacost endorses these views. These comments are definitely not in line with our brand values, and in listening to our fans we've decided to remove our advertising from the program. And today's soft reinterpretation:...

    WASHINGTON (AP)—The House has voted to let the Pentagon continue using taxpayer dollars to sponsor NASCAR race teams. By a 281-148 vote, lawmakers rejected an effort by Minnesota Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum that would have ended the practice. McCollum aides said the Army is spending $7 million on a sponsorship this year, and the Air Force and National Guard are spending additional money. McCollum said the military spends the funds to place decals on race cars and for a few driver appearances. The armed forces hope the sponsorships will help them attract recruits.

    The Orange Bowl will no longer be sponsored by FedEx, ending the longest-running naming rights deal for a BCS game at 21 years. A report in the Sports Business Journal said that FedEx informed ESPN it is bowing out of its sponsorship because the company didn't want a larger season-long sponsorship platform in college football, which is being asked of all BCS sponsors. ESPN, which will begin broadcasting all of the BCS games in 2011, is currently working with Orange Bowl officials on a new sponsor. "We are in active discussions around the Orange Bowl, which is a premier property...

    Iran remains the "most active state sponsor of terrorism" in the world, a report by the US state department says. It says Iran's role in the planning and financing of terror-related activities in the Middle East and Afghanistan threatens efforts to promote peace. Al-Qaeda remains the biggest danger to the US and the West, the annual report states, noting that terror attacks are rising in Pakistan. Iran rejected the report, saying the US was guilty of double standards. Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said the US had no right to accuse others after in light of its actions at Abu Ghraib...

    National Review ^ | August 31, 2005 | Andrew C. McCarthy
    Why are the polls down? Is public support for the war crumbling? Well, no. But the explanation for plummeting numbers varies depending on which war you are talking about. If you mean what started out as the "war on terror," support remains high. You may recall that war. It was about the eradication of militant Islam and its state sponsors. To the extent there is public uneasiness, it is not over the fact of that war but rather the manner in which it is being prosecuted, with terrorists continuing to score successes and their facilitators in Iran and Syria making...

    What do Iran, Syria, Sudan, Libya, and Cuba have in common? Each country is on the United Nation's Oil-For-Food Humanitarian Goods vendor list, and the U.S. List of State Sponsors of Terrorism. The number of oil contracts awarded to countries under Oil-for-Food, totaling U.S. $64.2 billion, already told an alarming tale. Today, allegations of bribery persist, and as the oil purchase numbers revealed, most of the countries opposed to the U.S. and Coalition Force's ouster of Saddam Hussein, were shown to have benefited financially with Saddam at Iraq's helm. Yet, the numbers in the second chapter of this story--the United...

    While the State Department's Patterns of Global Terrorism—2003 report [1] labeled Iran "the most active state sponsor of terrorism in 2003," the Bush administration has yet to agree on a national security presidential directive to define U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic.[2] Meanwhile, Tehran continues to edge closer to nuclear capability.[3]The following are excerpts from the 9/11 Commission Report, an unclassified version of which was released to the public on July 22, 2004.[4] The commission interviewed more than 1,000 people in ten countries and conducted an unprecedented review of U.S. intelligence.

I had suggested that, if it's a company/product you like, give "customer outreach" a chance before initiating a boycott. (Of course, I acknowledge that there are circumstances in which an immediate boycott might be the preferred course of action.) If you'd like to contact L.L. Bean about this, the correct address is: Thank you for contacting L.L. Bean with your concerns. L.L. Bean did not specifically sponsor or purchase advertising time during the "CBS news with Dan Rather" or "60 Minutes". The...

"For the first time in an official report to the Security Council," said Olara Otunnu, Annan's special representative for children and armed conflict, "those who violate standards for the protection of war-affected children have been specifically named and listed." Despite this blanket statement, reports that amidst cited offenders such as Afghanistan, Colombia, the Philippines, Sudan, and many others, the...
