FIRST UP: Mozilla. Which runs a search engine called Firefox. It seems, the company’s owners found out too late, that it’s appointed CEO, Brendan Eich, had committed an unspeakable crime:
He helped set up an Al-Qaeda training camp in California—no wait. That was a California Senator.
No, Brenda did something evidently much worse…he donated money to outlaw same-sex marriage, which in California is a crime far exceeding setting up Al-Qaeda training camps.
Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich is stepping down as CEO following protests over his support of a gay marriage ban in California. At issue was Eich’s $1,000 donation in 2008 to the campaign to pass California’s Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that outlawed same-sex marriages.
HIS boss, who happens to be a woman, said this when she found out:
“We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better,” Baker wrote.
She said that Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech and that “figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.”
Yes, MS Baker just can’t seem to get the concept of free speech, which is why I’m immensely proud of the fact that I never downloaded Firefox, even though Kim Komando (I really like her) suggested it. I went with my gut: Google and Microsoft do enough damage to a computer, why add a third?
A safety watchdog group has released a study that shows General Motors (GM) airbag failures resulted in the death of some 300 people, eight times the number that GM stated.
GM said there had been 12 deaths in 34 cars; the study shows 303 in 1.6 million vehicles from the vehicles GM recalled last month. GM did not recall the cars until February, despite learning of problems with the ignition switch in 2001 and issuing related service bulletins to dealers with suggested remedies in 2005.
So what did GM do? They immediately promoted the smartest and most innocent looking woman they could find in their stack of employees and made her CEO to take the heat: Mary Barra. And Mary went before Congress to explain:
Barra, who has been CEO for less than three months, fielded questions from the House Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee for two hours, avoiding any obvious gaffes and keeping her cool but also largely ducking specific answers, saying an internal investigation is underway into why it took GM so long to address ignition-switch problems first detected in 2001 this year.
She was battered for speaking “gobbledygook,” thumped for not firing an engineer who apparently concealed a change to the potentially deadly switches, and blasted because GM made an economic decision to keep the flawed component in production while knowing it didn’t meet GM standards.
Mozilla…basically hurt, not only one guy, who didn’t deserve to be ostracized for his own opinions about sex, but their bottom line. Many conservatives are going to stop using Firefox, and they will lose customers, and Mozilla might end up on the not very popular proverbial floor looking for CNN.
GM on the other hand, has killed 300 people with their negligence, and no one has been fired.(Proof that it’s been nationalized)
BUT…having said that…they are small peanuts compared to how many people will die due to the new Obamacare “less is more” healthcare law.
But, I know, I’m always doing this at the end of my Nobody’s Perfect opinions. So…
I pick GM.
If a bunch of gay people running Mozilla want to have only gay liberals working for their company, hey, doesn’t bother me. It’s a free country, and it’s a good thing now we know we don’t have to use your product.
But, GM…was bailed out by the American people…and murder is murder, no matter if it comes from a greedy bottom line, or a population-culling healthcare law.
So, to make ourselves forget both these companies…enjoy the SNL skit on what all scumbags do, whether they are big multinational companies or corrupt government officials…. when they are caught being…scumbags. They lie.
I could not for the life of me find it on Youtube, but you can see the SNL video HERE. It’s worth the watch!
One of my readers, sent me a very interesting article written by a Mr. Roger Simon, called, “Mind Your Own Beeswax!”: How Social Conservatives Can Win by Losing”
Mr. Simons’ main beef is about social conservatives and how they want to interfere in the lives of others, thereby being just as hypocritical as the left ( Read the article here.) –and that’s why the Republicans lost due to the women’s vote.
Oh my— blame it on those poor women. Those stupid Republicans need to be MORE hypocritical!
Being a woman myself, I wondered how I got a such a whole other sense from the elections–so I am simply going to write a letter to Mr. Simon, because frankly, I think he has been watching too much CNN. ——–
Dear Mr. Simon
After reading your article “Mind Your Own Beeswax” : How Social Conservatives Can Win by Losing.”, I must admit, I had no idea that it was the women that voted in Obama. I’ve heard from several different sources that it was the Latino vote. I’ve also heard that Romney lost because the Ron Paul supporters stayed home. There is a good possibility that Obama won by fraud, because of the fact that Soros bought the main frame that tallies the votes in Spain. I’ve already posted proof of how easily that could be done. Most people pick one or the other depending on their opinions on life, but the fact of the matter is, Obama got less votes than he did 2008, and Romney had much more support than McCain, so what’s the real truth? You say, it’s because of the Republican’s stance on women’s social issues.
Mr. Simon, I don’t recall Romney or any of the Republican candidates coming out and saying, “Yes, we must repeal Roe VS Wade, and all women should get back into the home and start having babies.” If you have a video of that somewhere I’d love to see it.
Nope. It was the Democrats that put that fear into the hearts of all the young single women, (the married women voted for Romney) because they know how hard it is right now for these women. They are having to raise the babies on their own, without another paycheck to help out, and on top of that, having to buy expensive Nike’s and cell phones, and pay for cable TV all by themselves simply because they can’t find a man to marry them, now can they? An extra paycheck in this economy goes a long way.
And why can’t they find a man to marry them? Are you saying they see an advantage in being single?
It was the Democrats who MADE the women the issue, not the Republicans, who were playing pretty poor defense on the ‘women’s’ issues the whole time. It’s the liberals who think that young single girls must not be …what did Obama say? Be burdened withe a baby. That’s right, a baby is a burden.
And in this economy, to a young single women, he’s right. Whew…the cost of diapers alone is enough to make you wonder if you will be able to afford paying that monthly IPHONE bill. After all, you NEED that phone to send baby pictures to all your friends!
Obama is giving women free condoms and abortions, so they can keep having sex, and still be able to use that what little money they are making at the Pizza place on basic necessities: Like buying new pumps, SUV’s, or IPADs. Is it any wonder that they vote for him?
Should the Republicans have offered free IPads to the girls? Why not just buy the votes like the Democrats..that would make more sense, then you can keep your conservative principles.
“For every single woman out there, who votes Republican, we will give her a brand new Ipod, Iphone, AND a $100 dollar certificate to Banana Republic!”
There, I just put the Republicans back in power. You’re welcome. But back to your article—
You said: “The Right is guilty of its own kind of hypocrisy. It’s interesting how some of those who most vociferously object to government interference in our economic affairs are most desirous of government interference in our personal lives.”
Nobody Says: Okay. What Republican politicians actually said, that if elected, they would repeal the right to abortion? Romney said he would leave it up to the states I believe. That’s a far cry from some kind of draconian law of control. But I suppose you think passing a law that says we ALL have to pay for that single girl’s abortion is a very good idea. So far, I did not hear Paul Ryan or Romney say they were going to limit abortions. State some names on this sir…help me out.
You said: “Republicans will be the nanny for our private lives.”
Nobody Says: HUH? Like I said, WHERE did you get this from? Obama will soon sign the Agenda 21 which will give the United Nations a right over YOUR child. You lose all parental rights. That’s about as private as you can get. Come on…fess up. James Carvel is your second cousin…right?
You said; “Republicans have been losing the women’s vote for years and it is only going to get worse if we don’t take the social issues off the table and put them back where they belong, at home.”
Nobody Says: The only people who put social issues on the table this past election was the Democrats. They were the ones who used the mantra force of those “evil” pro-lifers, and the young single women were stupid enough to buy it. Once again… are you from MSNBC? What did I miss here?
You said: “The young vastly favor gay marriage. If you don’t think it’s going to be a fait accompli in the Western world in 25 years , you’re living in a cloud cuckoo land.”
Nobody Says: Yes, you support gay marriage. You have a RIGHT to support it, but not a right to force everyone else to . Ever wonder why? Because for the past 10 years, the American people have been hit daily with propaganda about “gay rights” and if they are Christians and don’t like it, they are labeled as EVIL.
So, you think because the left’s brainwashing has finally gotten the young people to accept it, every person who is against gay marriage, should just accept it too. After all,….the vote is in.
I guess you accept Obama’s death panels too?
You also say—“Marriage should be outside the government”
Nobody Says: Well…I agree…then the gays could get civil marriages. Why not? Let them pay big taxes too. And hey, there are states now where they can go get married, right?
BUT…gay have rights already…so why in the name of “gay” should Christians Churches should be FORCED to perform gay marriages by law? Or pay for abortions by force of law? And it’s the will of Obama to force everyone to bend to his private views.
If that’s not against liberty, than I don’t know what is. You’re a libertarian, right? What part of ‘liberty’ do you uphold? The L and the E?
The world has changed, and you are basically saying: Admit defeat….your conservative social morals are old and outdated and the women have arrived. Sacrifice your principle, for the good of my pocketbook.
Nobody Thinks that’s exactly why we will all be slaves. It’s in the communist plan (that all the leftist loonies use) to get rid of religion, AND the family…and then the state can control everything.
But..libertarians haven’t figured that out yet. Not that I stand for any party. ( I remain Independent.)
You letter makes sense, from a liberal point of view…You present it as pragmatic ( the young all accept homosexuals so that makes it democratically right) and women will have abortions forever ( so accept it as a fact) but what you do NOT accept, is the liberty of religious people to have their own views on the matter.
And in that respect, you might want to check..I think you might be a closet democrat.
So…let me get this straight: The nation is now filled with fatherless children, and women who can’t afford too many kids, so abortions needs to stay legal, and conservatives should just get off the “social” subject, admit defeat, and get to fixing the economy, even though the taxpayers will be PAYING for all these women and children food and housing, etc, AND abortions and contraception’s on top of it?
And if we did, Republicans would start winning?
I want what you’re drinking, Mr. Simon….I think they call it a Libertarian Zombie..
Am I right? Or…are do you live in Colorado?
