These Broads Are Crazy!!!!

When I was in college, my roommates and I staged a mini boycott of a place called Cluck-U.  They sold these steroid infused addictive chicken wings that most students loved.  There was a period of time when we were having Cluck-U delivered every week.  I don’t remember the details of the boycott, but I believe it had to do with excessive waits for delivery (over an hour on a weekend), cold food (who wants cold soggy wings) and maybe an over inflated delivery charge.  At the end of the day the boycott probably meant nothing to Cluck-U, but we felt good about ourselves (and yes we eventually started eating Cluck-U again, but we stopped getting it delivered).

 

Since then I’ve boycotted several businesses: Wal-Mart( they can NOT get my money), South West Airlines (I wouldn’t take a South West flight if Jesus was the pilot), Nine West, DSW on Camp Creek, and Spondivits just to name a few.  I could go on and on, but the point is when I feel like I am getting bad service, or I feel like I’m being taken advantage of, (I will boycott doing my work too if I feel so moved) I cease and desist with my support.   I’ve stopped subscriptions to magazines because I didn’t like their subject matter.  I’ve stopped watching certain television stations because I found their programming offensive.  At the end of the day we are all empowered to make these decisions and should feel free to do so when the situation warrants it.

 

While I am a definite proponent of ones “Right to Boycott”…..I was more than disgusted when I heard about the latest antics of the McShame/Sara Who Cult (yes they have officially been labeled a “cult” by me)!  A GOP women’s group has now decided to launch a national boycott of Oprah Winfrey because she refused to book Sara Who on her show.  Where shall I begin…

 

First of all, it’s her show!  She can book whomever she wants, nevertheless Oprah came out months ago and said she would not have any candidates on her show because she was an active Obama supporter and it would be unfair to only have him and not other candidates. (Obama’s appearances on her show were before he announced his candidacy).  Secondly who is Sara Who to think she MUST get Oprah’s ear?  These Sara Who Culteers are crazy. (In case you are wondering, yes “culteer” is a word I made up and it means “member of a cult”….kind of like a Musketeer or a Mouseketeer).  In the article I read they actually  refer to Sara Who as an “Icon”.  Really?  Cher is an icon, Tina Turner is an icon.  Sara Who is a smoke and mirrors act put together by the Republicans to steal the votes of the Pantsuit Posse. 

 

What makes her iconic?  Is it the fact that she preached “abstinence only” in her state all the while she couldn’t even enforce it in her own house?  While these nut jobs are busy boycotting Oprah, they need to be trying to get the Palin’s on Maury or Jerry Springer.  The rumor on YouTube is that the REAL baby daddy is a wanna be rapper from Los Angeles that met the Fertile Myrtle seventeen year old while visiting his uncle Alaska.  Oh yeah, did I mention he’s BLACK.  While it is probably untrue….that story has Maury, not Oprah, written all over it!!!!!!

  1. I am with you. That is why we have the Bill of Rights. However, they are only useful when they are not being used against you. So I exercise my freedoms to boycott and refuse to be walked over. That is why I am exercising my right to walk my “big a**” to the polls in November and tell them fools “eight is enough”!

    By the way, I feel the same way about walmart! My biggest complaint is Cold Stone in Atlantic Station. They never have any good service.

  2. Actually, I wish Oprah WOULD put her on her show. I think by the time Oprah got finished with her the world would know the real truth about all the lies and misrepresentations Palin is shoveling. But on the other hand, Oprah has the right to ask for interviews or refuse to interview whomever she wishes. It’s her show. Apparently, Oprah has enough viewership among republican women that they think an interview with her is THAT important to their candidate. Another reason why I wish Oprah WOULD interview Palin and expose Palin to her supporters.

  4. Palin’s own state is against her. This was just sent to me via email, just thought I’d share. (pictures are also in the email) of people protesting Palin, those who once voted for her.

    [The] Alaska Women Reject Palin rally was to be held outside on the lawn in front of the Loussac Library in midtown Anchorage . Homemade signs were encouraged, and the idea was to make a statement that Sarah Palin does not speak for all Alaska women, or men. I had no idea what to expect.
    The rally was organized by a small group of women, talking over coffee. It made me wonder what other things have started with small groups of women talking over coffee. It’s probably an impressive list. These women hatched the plan, printed up flyers, posted them around town, and sent notices to local media outlets. One of those media outlets was KBYR radio, home of Eddie Burke, a long-time uber-conservative Anchorage talk show host. Turns out that Eddie Burke not only announced the rally, but called the people who planned to attend the rally “a bunch of socialist baby-killing maggots,” and read the home phone numbers of the organizers aloud over the air, urging listeners to call and tell them what they thought. The women, of course, received some nasty, harassing and threatening messages.
    I felt a bit apprehensive. I’d been disappointed before by the turnout at other rallies. Basically, in Anchorage , if you can get 25 people to show up at an event, it’s a success. So, I thought to myself, if we can actually get 100 people there that aren’t sent by Eddie Burke, we’ll be doing good. A real statement will have been made. I confess, I still had a mental image of 15 demonstrators surrounded by hundreds of menacing “socialist baby-killing maggot” haters.
    It’s a good thing I wasn’t tailgating when I saw the crowd in front of the library or I would have ended up in somebody’s trunk. When I got there, about 20 minutes early, the line of sign wavers stretched the full length of the library grounds, along the edge of the road, 6 or 7 people deep! I could hardly find a place to park. I nabbed one of the last spots in the library lot, and as I got out of the car and started walking, people seemed to join in from every direction, carrying signs.
    Never, have I seen anything like it in my 17 and a half years living in Anchorage . The organizers had someone walk the rally with a counter, and they clicked off well over 1400 people (not including the 90 counter-demonstrators). This was the biggest political rally ever, in the history of the state. I was absolutely stunned. The second most amazing thing is how many people honked and gave the thumbs up as they drove by. And even those that didn’t honk looked wide-eyed and awe-struck at the huge crowd that was growing by the minute. This just doesn’t happen here.
    Then, the infamous Eddie Burke showed up. He tried to talk to the media, and was instantly surrounded by a group of 20 people who started shouting O-BA-MA so loud he couldn’t be heard. Then passing cars started honking in a rhythmic pattern of 3, like the Obama chant, while the crowd cheered, hooted and waved their signs high.
    So, if you’ve been doing the math, yes, the Alaska Women Reject Palin Rally was significantly bigger than Palin’s rally that got all the national media coverage! So take heart, sit back, and enjoy the photo gallery. Feel free to spread the pictures around to anyone who needs to know that Sarah Palin most definitely does not speak for all Alaskans. The citizens of Alaska , who know her best, have things to say.
