The head of one of the nation´s largest fish conservation groups says Fiat Chrysler Super Bowl ads "glorified" the destruction of aquatic habitat in an apparent attempt to appeal to off-road thrill seekers. It´s the second time ads by the automaker have drawn complaints since the Feb. 4 game. Trout Unlimited President and CEO Chris Wood said Wednesday one ad gave the impression that a Jeep Cherokee was splashing down the middle of a wild stream bed. Fiat Chrysler is defending the ads but says there are no plans to run them again. It says one spot was shot on

Trout Unlimited is not what the name implies. They are not a bunch of fishermen that just want to fish and have a good time. Trout Unlimited is one of the most radical eco nazi organizations, they rank right up the with the Sierra Club and The Wilderness Society.

All those Westerns with horses and cattle drives through rivers! All those WWII movies like The Bridge at Remagen and A Bridge Too Far! Even The Adventures of Robin Hood with Errol Flynn! Oh, the horror!

I´m all for conservation. I´m for protecting freshwater streams and rivers. I don´t see how publicly attacking an automaker helps. That ad isn´t going to cause someone to act like a yahoo. I don´t get the mindset of these groups.

fIAT is not led by geniuses. They have stupid ads.
The dumbest one was where their wretched little fiat 500s were splashing into the ocean, driving across the bottom of the Atlantic, and driving up on American shores.. Dumb.
Not even Dead Ted Kennedy would like that.
How well has fiat advertising worked? You can still find leftover 2016s at some dealers.

Step up to the plate, Trout Unlimited, and start buildng bridges to protect the precious fish. It looked on the ad like the vehicles were crossing where there was an already established wilderness road. They didn´t just spalsh through any old part of a river. Build a bridge or two to protect your fish. Oh wait, that cost money and the object it to vilify someone or something to make money.

Just one more PC move by the left to silence all discourse. They keep snipping here, cutting there, typing off this, stifling that and next thing you know, no one can talk about anything, show anything, produce anything. And sooner than you would know it, everyone is totally silenced. That is what PCV is all about. The enemy controls you speech and your thoughts.

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights.

The millennial generation, those ages 18 to 37, are cheap when it comes to tipping restaurant servers, according to a new surveyed released by CreditCards.com of 1,000 participants. When dining out, 10% of millennials said they typically leave no tip for their server, compared to just 3% of respondents who are older. “People have jobs, but they’re not getting raises, and life is just expensive, especially when you’re carrying student loan debt or other types of debt,” Matt Schulz, a senior industry analyst for CreditCards.com, said to Yahoo Finance. “The other side of it is that we’ve seen a lot

The mayor of Puerto Rico who shot to international fame after criticizing President Trump for not doing enough to help Hurricane Maria victims is being investigated by the FBI on corruption charges, according to multiple news outlets. San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and her administration are under fire for allegedly obstructing critical supplies from reaching victims of the category-4 hurricane that leveled much of the tiny U.S. territory nearly nine months ago. The FBI reportedly launched the investigation following a February lawsuit filed by Yadira Molina, the former director of procurement. Molina claims she was retaliated

Fifa is investigating alleged homophobic chants by Mexico fans during the 1-0 World Cup win over defending champions Germany on Sunday. Sunday´s chants seemed to be directed at Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) was fined nine times for supporters´ homophobic chanting during the qualifying campaign. It has repeatedly asked fans to refrain from using the slurs. Javier Ruiz Galindo, head of the National House of Mexico for fans in Moscow, said the chant could be perceived in "many ways". "It´s not necessarily meant to insult somebody," he said.

Conservative political newcomer Ivan Duque has been elected president of Colombia. With nearly all votes counted. Mr Duque has 54% with his rival Gustavo Petro on 41.8%. The result raises questions about the future of a historic but controversial peace deal with Farc rebels. Mr Duque, who is supported by former President Alvaro Uribe, has said he will overhaul the 2016 agreement which gave the rebels places in Congress. The orthodox economist also says he will revisit crimes allegedly committed by the rebels during the brutal five-decade conflict with the government. Mr Duque is viewed as the business-friendly

Maybe you think of yourself as a person who really, really loves candy. Maybe there is even a particular kind or brand of candy that stimulates your dopamine receptors most of all, throwing you into sheer sugared bliss and delight. But is there a candy you love so much that you would name your child after it? Eric and Renee Cupp of Elizabethtown, North Carolina, said that yes, in fact, there is. With the last name "Cupp," Eric and Renee deliberately chose their daughter´s name, Reese Eve, after their favorite peanut butter and chocolate treat. And now, the family has won $10,000 in the Reese's Outrageous Fan contest in tribute to that

It comes as the administration of President Donald Trump has proposed revamping the SNAP program and cutting costs dramatically by, among other things,

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email
