June Pride Month

Original Article

Posted By: Beardo, 6/6/2022 12:24:03 AM

Oreo Cookies joined the woke corporate trend this week by celebrating Pride Month with special packaging. Partnering with the organization PFLAG, Oreo created its own limited edition “Pride Pack,” which comes “covered with words of love and support from real allies of the LGBTQ+ community.” (snip) Oreo has been pushing corporate wokeism since 2012 when the company released a gay pride Oreo cookie ad. “We are excited to illustrate what is making history today in a fun and playful way,” Basil Maglaris, a spokeswoman for Kraft Foods wrote at the time.

I guess they are going with the morbidly obese, self hating, binge eaters that show up at every lbgtxyz rally. Normal people should not be eating sugared lard anyway. Make your own cookies. Not that hard.

Sorry Nabisco, was my favorite cookie since I was a kid. No more. It seems the corporate world in this country are really a bunch of morons. They just keep on shooting them selves in the foot time after time. You would think after they did it once they would notice it hurts. But no, they really are stupid enough to keep it up.

“We are excited to illustrate what is making history today in a fun and playful way,” Sorry, Oreo. Gay meant fun ant playful, once upon a time, until it was stolen for use as the name of a culture based on sodomy. This is pandering to perversion for politics and profit. Get lost.

No. 13 has a nice, but unfortunately incomplete list. Also, remember this reality: Corporations pander to the Democrat Party. They do this because they know, in the long run, that Democrats will ruin their businesses if they don't. Democrats have used Lawfare on businesses since long before "Lawfare" was a thing. They also force companies to hire their sycophants, who act as imbedded agents, telling the company what the Democrats expect, and, over time, moving up the corporate ladder gaining more power (and money). Eventually, they squeeze out the competent 'old guard' and replace them with their own people. My family came to America in the 1870s. The father put together a successful drygoods business on the Allegheny River. It thrived. The family had like 11 kids and the business was locally popular. Then the Father died. His eldest sons were out of state, the younger to young to take over the business. Women were mot trained to do business back then. He had been sick a while and the local government had pushed an accountant on him to protect his family's interests and protect their tax revenue. Thus individual forged a document giving him the business, and with the help of the local mayor (Democrat) and judge (Democrat) they stole the business he was hired to manage and turned my great grandmother and the younger children out in the street, penniless. By today's standards, they were defrauded of a business worth millions. The family had to break up and depend on extended family to survive. This is Democrat Politics, my friends. They've been at it a very long time.

Please report how their sales of these cookies went. Did anyone buy them, did they sell because they were reduced in price? Was it a limited stock? Percentage of sales versus the other Oreo choices? They can tout their product but what really matters is how much sold and how they were sold.

Ok. So everyone grab a 4-5 packages and then when you get to check out, tell them you changed your mind and don’t want them anymore. Don’t reference the lame corporate virtue signaling as the reason for your decision. They will have to put it back on the shelf and it will send a silent, but obvious message to the retailers.

'Pro-Choice' Has Always Been a Fraud 12 replies
Posted by Beardo 6/10/2022 3:50:06 PM Post Reply
Euphemisms are always meant to sound true, not be true. In fact, they intentionally try to prevent people from knowing the truth. Reproductive Freedom. Women’s Healthcare. Reproductive Justice. Women’s Right to Choose. Abortion Care. It’s all just clever but cunning branding. But it has fatal consequences. “Right to life is short, catchy, composed of monosyllabic words — an important consideration in English. We need something comparable. Right to choose would seem to do the job.” These are the words in a 1972 memorandum from the late Episcopal priest, Jimmye Kimmey, who is credited with coining the deceptive phrase “pro-choice”.

Starbucks is considering an end to the “open bathroom” policy at its stores due to mounting concerns about public safety, CEO Howard Schultz said. Schultz said Starbucks was exploring whether to alter the policy, which allows non-customers to use store bathrooms, due to a nationwide “mental health” problem that was posing difficulties for the coffeehouse chains’ employees. “There is an issue of, just, safety in our stores, in terms of people coming in who use our stores as a public bathroom,” Schultz said during a New York Times DealBook event Thursday. “We have to provide a safe environment for our people and our customers."

Morale is at an all-time low at the beleaguered Mouse House after Disney CEO Bob Chapek dumped TV content boss Peter Rice. Rice, who joined Disney after the media giant acquired 21st Century Fox in 2019, was replaced on Thursday by his number two, Dana Walden, in what many have described as a “shocking” shakeup. “It’s not good for the company. Morale is terrible,” a Disney insider told The Hollywood Reporter. No reason was given by Disney as to why Rice was let go, but sources buzzed Thursday that Chapek sharpened the axe before it fell on him after he butted heads with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Dejong said at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, she routinely participated in classroom discussions on contentious issues such as race relations and religion, often expressing a conservative viewpoint.

The conventional wisdom on abortion polling is that the Supreme Court is walking into a gale-force political wind if it overturns Roe v. Wade. (snip) The Journal’s poll last week says 68% of people hope the Supreme Court doesn’t completely overturn Roe. Movement in such topline figures is meaningful, but it obscures as much as it reveals. What do people mean when they identify as pro-choice? In the Gallup survey, 67% of Americans say abortion should be “generally legal” in the first three months of pregnancy. But it falls precipitously to 36% in the second trimester and 20% in the final trimester.

It wasn’t that long ago when the left’s narrative on ‘gay rights’ was simple, straightforward, and easy to support: Let’s all be tolerant of one another, live and let live, and don’t discriminate. Tolerance is, after all, one of the fundamental tenets of the philosophy which drove America’s founding. But as the saying goes, “give someone an inch and they’ll take a mile,” which is the situation in which we find ourselves today. The message of ‘tolerance’ eventually morphed into ‘acceptance.’ At some point late in the Obama Administration, our culture decided that it was inadequate to merely tolerate the shenanigans of the LGBTQ community, we needed to welcome them.

As the liberal media obsesses over President Trump for so-called "inciting" the peaceful crowds to enter the Capitol on January 6 to protest, Republicans are standing up and defending their party. While meeting with conservative activists at a Phoenix IHOP, Senate candidate Blake Masters (R-AZ.) questioned whether Jan. 6 was just one big set up by the FBI. According to audio of the meeting obtained by CNN, the Trump-endorsed candidate was asked if he would support an investigation into the U.S. Intelligence operations to reveal the government’s motives in the protests, to which he replied “absolutely.”

Speculation is rife concerning the possible presidential candidates representing the two major parties as the nation approaches the 2024 elections. Everyone has an opinion, and the pundits are competing in the expertise sweepstakes. What can we say with some degree of plausibility? The Democrat roster is, by all accounts, dramatically uninspiring. Biden, who speaks in tongues, is plainly beyond redeeming; the question is whether he will manage to survive the year, let alone stumble, lollop, and whiffle to the end of his first term. Kamala Harris belongs in vaudeville or farce, given her talent for provoking laughter. Both will have to be retired in favor of an electable candidate. But who?

It is no surprise that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) dislikes President Donald Trump. After all, no man has done more to denigrate the Iraq/Afghan War strategy that her father crusaded for than Trump. He not only opposed Cheney’s approach to war, but he also mocked it mercilessly. As the former Vice President’s oldest daughter, with her own dose of less charm and less savvy, Liz Cheney has now entered on her own crusade. She stands athwart the House floor denouncing Trump, all his pomps, and all his evil works. Instead of Holy Water, she will sprinkle the tears of fellow Republican failure Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) on the TV cameras.

President Joe Biden has scrapped Donald Trump's red, white and dark blue color scheme for the new Air Force One planes, citing the additional costs it would require.

That means the Biden administration is keeping the light blue and white scheme that goes back to the Kennedy era. The new Boeing 747-8s, which are being modified into flying White Houses, aren’t expected to fly until 2026. The Air Force revealed earlier this week there's a design flaw in Trump's color plan
