To err is human but to really screw things up you need a fast food chain trying to make a political statement.
They did and boy did they screw up.
Who is it?
It is Arby’s.
Last week, in an effort to make a political statement, Arby’s announced it would no longer advertise on the Rush Limbaugh show.
Houston, we have a problem. Arby’s has never advertised on the Rush Limbaugh show.
There was a time when conservatives would simply endure slights like this but no more. Rush immediately tweeted back that Arby’s had never been an advertiser on his show.
There is nothing like someone stepping in it, and then tracking it all over the carpeting and that is exactly what Arby’s did.
Outraged conservatives went onto Arby’s Twitter feed and expressed their displeasure. Arby’s promptly blocked them.
During the weekend, Arby’s quietly unblocked them but the damage is done. Many conservatives have spent their last dime at Arby’s.
I certainly have.
I for one am tired of these corporations who are not only gutless but who spit on conservative Americans.
On Arby’s FaceBook page, conservatives continue to express their opinions and they are a costumer service nightmare.
Aww, isn’t that terrible? A liberal thought they would score points and instead end up with some really bad roast beef all over their face.
Here is a memo to idiot liberal managers at major corporations. Conservatives make up about 43% of the American population. Liberals only make up 21%. Let’s see, if you want to pander to a group do you want to pander to a larger group or a smaller group?
Perhaps a better way of putting it is do you want to offend a group that makes up almost half of America?
Arby’s is not the only dumb company. Coke folded like a cheap suit when the racist group the Color of Change complained that Coke was a corporate supporter the American Legislative Exchange Council.
ALEC is a great organization, which helps advance a conservative agenda.
That is why the radical left wing groups, like the racist group the Color of Change is so adamantly against ALEC.
Coke is another company that conservatives are now ignoring. I just discovered an excellent alternative to Coke. It is called Cheerwine. It is a southern soft drink, cherry flavored. The diet version of the drink is very attractive if you have high blood pressure since it has no sodium.
For both companies, there political adventures have been a disaster for both of them. Costumer service reps are taught to ask, “What will it take to make this right?” Here’s what it will take for Arby’s to make it right. First an apology and then they need to advertise on Rush Limbaugh’s show (assuming he will have them). Coke needs to restore its support to ALEC.
Until those things happen, I’m not going to buy Coke products and I don’t care how hungry I am, Arby’s is off the menu.
Yeah, the wife and I like those curly fries, too, and the bell to ring on the way out. Oh well.
We've taken to looking at the 'grown in' stamps on produce. I remember from reading a Rosicrucian book that produce not from your local area is of no use to your body. Something about the harmonics and magnetic fields, not agreeing with yours. Anyway, a fresh tomato out of your own garden can't be beat, with green onions you just pulled up. It's 3:53. Wonder what's for supper. O, I forgot, leftover ham and pasta salad, and american celery...
Whatever the ratio of, them vs us, the total isn't 100%. There's still the unconverted out there. When you come upon one remeind them they can vote by ABSENTEE BALLOT in NOV. No need to stand in line. Not registered? Anyone can request voter registration cards in bulk from your county office.

Wow. The exec's at Arby's took aim at their foot and shot both with one bullet! They give up a conservative cash-flow in their tills AND will still be considered (by the flaming idiots otherwise known as Occupy) in the 'one percenter' category. They also can count themselves in the category with Obama for ruining jobs in America. How many American jobs will be cut at Arby's in the long run when income drops off to a trickle?
Democrat crap being feed to us is really, really bad food for our souls.
Like the Obama Picture on the Flag in New Jersey.
Sent that one to DNC Chair and asked what in the hell are you trying to do, screw up Obama's election chances.
Make them think anyway.
I just read an article talking about the $1,000,000. fund raiser/pizza party being hosted by the family that owns "Little Caesar's Pizza" in behalf of Obama soon, in Detroit. Yet more billionaires for Obama, how "quaint."
I'm SICK of wealthy power brokers raising money to OUR LIMIT FREEDOM through investment in the Obama Socialist agenda.
I'm not against wealth, but I am against the hypocrisy of wealthy pigs who support liberal/Democrat/socialist policies.
The only way I can display my displeasure with these dupes is to withwold my $$$$ from them.
ARBY'S IS NOW ON THE LIST.
I love Arby's and will continue to eat their yummy food.
It's too bad about Arby's going out of business...actually this is my prediction...bankruptcy by this time next year!
I'm not a customer any more...
Oh, wait a minute! I quit going there a few years ago!
Where does this statistic come from? Maybe its PAYING customers?
