” Guido Barilla sparked international outrage when he said he’d never feature a gay couple in ads for his firm’s foodstuffs — adding that if homosexuals don’t like it, they can buy another brand.
“I would never do [a commercial] with a homosexual family, not for lack of respect, but because we don’t agree with them,” the company chairman told Italian radio Wednesday evening.
“Ours is a classic family where the woman plays a fundamental role,” Barilla, 55, said, adding that if gays “like our pasta and our advertising, they’ll eat our pasta. If they don’t like it, then they will not eat it and they will eat another brand.” “
Good for Barilla , a man that refuses to compromise his beliefs for the almighty dollar .
” An election-related billboard in Cleveland’s Ward 5 has caused a stir, prompting some complaints that it discriminates against minority groups and felons. “
We would like to know two things , why does pointing out the fact that something is illegal constitutes racism ?
And number two , if someone is not capable enough to be able to procure a valid form of identification for themselves why should we consider them capable enough to play a role in determining our future ?
” The advertisement, posted at the intersection of Community College Avenue and East 35th Street, warns that “voting fraud is a felony” in bold lettering. It also states that the penalty is punishable by up to three and a half years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
The ad also shows a gavel and sound block and lists that it was paid for by a private family foundation. The billboard is operated by Clear Channel Outdoor.”
” Less than 100 days before the election, a string of public opinion polls consistently show that the
public views both presidential contenders as strong, honest leaders.
The editors find it deeply troubling that after four years a majority of the public still views Obama as a ” strong , honest leader(s)” .
Therein lies the value to the democratic party of a compliant , lapdog media . That is a service that no amount of campaign advertising could ever hope to equal .
All we libertarian/conservative types can say is ” thank God Al Gore invented the internet” .
The truth will out … But not without cost
Such a snapshot is particularly troubling for Obama, given that his campaign has dumped more than $100 million into television
advertisements in battleground states — roughly three-quarters of it on attack ads against Romney.”
” A 2011 Gallup poll found that 40% of Americans consider themselves conservative and only 21% consider themselves liberal. So why does the advertising community — a.k.a Madison Avenue — and their clients continue to hire outspoken
liberals for their advertising campaigns?
I recently lost two very big advertising campaigns (add those to the many others) because I am a conservative. The advertisers
actually stated this. Ironically, the more I speak out about the non-partisan values of our United States Constitution and the necessities of
a free-market system to keep businesses thriving, the more ad campaigns (whose goal it is to promote their businesses) I lose.”
Also from Gateway Pundit we see that in addition to paying his bundlers for raising re-election funds with taxpayer money , the One can also purchase campaign advertising on the public dime .
“The Obama Administration will blow $20million on ads to promote Obamacare before the election. And you get to pay for the ads.
The contract was awarded to the same company, Porter Novelli, that produced the taxpayer-funded Andy Griffith Obamacare ads”
