Fast fooder McDonald’s is biggest sponsor of lewd TV shows

Evil Ronald McDonaldJunk food purveyer McDonald’s is also the biggest purveyor of junk TV.

Thaddeus Bablinski reports for LifeSiteNews, July 21, 2014, that the McDonalds mega-chain tops the list of companies most apt to sponsor sexually-graphic television shows, according to the pro-family TV watchdog, Parents Television Council (PTC).

PTC’s Research Department evaluates and reviews TV shows for their sexual content (depictions of or implied sexual content) and suggestive dialogue about sexual content. By “sexually graphic shows,” PTC means shows with “jokes about incest, rape, pedophilia; [glorifications of] adultery; barrages of bleeped and partially-bleeped F-words; and intense, brutal violence, including cannibalism and fetishized butchery.”

The Parents Television Council’s Top Ten TV sponsors of programs with sexual content, suggestive dialogue, foul language, and violence are:

Sexual Content:

  1. McDonalds Corporation
  2. YUM! Brands
  3. Mars Inc.
  4. Colgate Palmolive Company
  5. Virgin Mobile Telecoms Limited
  6. Time Warner Inc.
  7. Sony Corp. of America
  8. Toyota Motor Sales Inc.
  9. Samsung Electronics America, Inc.
  10. Red Bull North America, Inc.

Suggestive Dialogue:

  1. McDonalds Corporation
  2. Subway Restaurants
  3. Target Corp.
  4. Kohl’s Corporation
  5. Sears, Roebuck and Co
  6. Unilever United States
  7. AT&T Corp.
  8. Verizon Communications
  9. Toyota Motor Sales Inc.
  10. Microsoft

Foul Language:

  1. McDonalds Corporation
  2. YUM! Brands
  3. L’Oreal USA, Inc.
  4. Verizon Communications
  5. Toyota Motor Sales Inc.
  6. Cablevision Systems Corporation
  7. Signet Group plc (Kay Jewelers)
  8. Capital One Financial Corporation
  9. H & R Block
  10. Hyundai

Violence:

  1. Subway Restaurants
  2. YUM! Brands
  3. Verizon Communications
  4. AT&T Corp.
  5. Sprint Corporation
  6. Burlington Industries, Inc.
  7. Daimler Chrysler Corporation
  8. Toyota Motor Sales Inc.
  9. General Motors Corp.
  10. Signet Group plc (Kay Jewelers)

PTC president Tim Winter said in a press release: “The companies on our lists are the worst offenders in each category, and McDonalds, YUM! Brands, and Toyota Motor Sales Inc., in particular have been the top contributors to the most explicit broadcast TV shows. Particularly jarring is the direction that McDonalds’ advertising has taken in recent years, given its history as a family – and child-centric – brand. We’ve recently reached out to McDonalds to encourage the company to change course, as it used to be one of our ‘best’ advertisers. And perhaps not coincidentally, data shows the company to have had better earnings when it eschewed explicit TV programming.

Today we call for greater responsibility by the corporations whose media dollars underwrite some of the most harmful material on broadcast television. Family quality programming doesn’t just benefit families. It is also more profitable for the corporate sponsors who advertise on the broadcast networks. We hope that companies will choose wisely where to put their ad dollars for the benefit of families across this country.”

Who really owns the rainbow?

Burger King Proud Whopper

Is the public swallowing a real Whopper?

We drive past a number of Unitarian churches that fly a rainbow flag out front. I haven’t asked them, but a quick search brought me to this page:

Unitarian Universalist Rainbow Principles

  • Respect All Beings
  • Offer Fair and Kind Treatment
  • Yearn to Learn
  • Grow in Spirit and Mind
  • Believe in Your Ideas and Act on Them
  • Insist on Peace, Freedom and Justice
  • Value the Connections in All Creation

nut_symbolsAll well and good, but a look at a related Facebook page, Rainbow Unitarians, reveals the real reason for the rainbow on their churches is their connection to the LGBTQ lifestyles.

So, the Unicornitarians are the all inclusive alternative to the closed minded Christian churches. They embrace everyone. They love to adorn their SUVs with bumper stickers that declare, COEXIST, and defend the misunderstood jihadists among us.

unicorn-poop-shirt1The obvious foolishness of COEXIST (what with that nasty beheading, cannibalism, genocide thing) requires that someone remain around to clean up after the noble aspirations of the Unicornitarians and their mythical  beasties.

A Horse of a Different Color

And then, in an effort to pander to a disgruntled minority, we see the Reverend Jesse partners-rainbow_push-logoJackson promoting his Rainbow Push Coalition, and equating the struggles of the African American community to the suffering of the LGBT-TGI-Fridays gender blending people.

So race-bating charlatans have joined the parade, and actively encourage the poor disenfranchised LGBT-BLT_WHATEVER people in their pursuit of a world filled with peace, love and understanding.

Peace Love and Understanding: Exceptions

There will be no peace, love or understanding extended to:

  • Pro-Life Roman Catholics
  • Pro-Life Jews
  • Pro-Life Evangelicals
  • Constitutional Conservatives
  • (special consideration will be extended to Jihadist Muslims)

 Intelectual Copyrights Question

All this lovingness aside, there remains an unanswered question:
Who owns the right to use the rainbow as a branding image? 

And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”
– Genesis 9:13-16

Rainbow_Noah_Covenant_Joseph_Koch

So we have now established the true ownership of the rainbow, the Creator of the ends of the Earth. Now stop right there. I know what you’re thinking:

“Hey! It’s time we sue the heck out of the LGBT-XYZ Unicornitarians, for copyright infringement!”

But a suit is already in the works. There’s no need to waste energy on it. The Copyright Holder is planning on collecting triple damages…

…soon.

40% of U.S. adults (incl. 11% of Dems) not sure if Obama is American citizen

army-officer-quote-on-obama

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, conducted on July 16-17, 2014, finds that whereas 60% of U.S. adults think Obama is an American citizen, as many as 40% or 4 out of every 10 do not believe their president is an American citizen, which of course violates the U.S. Constitution’s Article II.

Of those Americans who are skeptical of Obama’s U.S. citizenship:

  • 23% outright don’t believe he’s a U.S. citizen, including:
    • 41% of Republicans, 21% of unaffiliated Independents, and 11% of Democrats!
  • Another 17% aren’t sure if he is a U.S. citizen, including:
    • Over 20% of Republicans and Independents, and 7% of Democrats.

The survey also probed Americans’ belief/disbelief in other conspiracies, including:

  • 32% of Americans believe President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by more than one shooter.
  • 24% or one-in-four adults are convinced that the U.S. government knew in advance about the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and did nothing to stop them.
  • 20% of Americans believe that a UFO carrying space aliens on board crashed near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
  • 14% think the U.S. faked the moon landing.

One interesting finding is that in general, men are more likely than women to believe most of the conspiracy theories.

Breaking! ObamaCare Just Slammed By D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

BREAKING: Obamacare dealt massive setback by federal appeals court.

By Tom Howell Jr.    The Washington Times Updated: 11:26 a.m. on Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Millions of Americans are not entitled to government health insurance subsidies under Obamacare because of the way the law is written, a divided three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.

In a decision that could blow a massive hold in President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, the court held that people living in states that relied on the federal government to set up their insurance market exchanges cannot offer the subsidies considered critical to making coverage affordable.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the administration used an IRS rule to stretch the meaning of the Affordable Care Act, which said financial aid to to low- and middle-income people should only flow to exchanges “established by the State.” If that means only state-run exchanges, it would cut off subsidies to two-thirds of the nation.

The Obama administration is sure to appeal the circuit’s decision in the case, Halbig v. Sebelius, because the subsidies are a huge draw for Obamacare customers. Without that selling point, the reforms would effectively collapse under the weight of premiums that are no longer affordable.

Under the court’s ruling, only the 14 states and the District that have taken on the responsibility for their exchanges would be able to dole out premium tax credits to their resident.

White Flags Mysteriously Replace American Flags Atop Brooklyn Bridge

By Murray Weiss, Janet Upadhye and Aidan Gardiner  on July 22, 2014

MANHATTAN — American flags were removed from atop the Brooklyn Bridge’s two towers Tuesday morning and replaced by white flags, sources said.

Police, including theNYPD‘s counter terrorism and intelligence divisions, were checking surveillance footage from the bridge after images of the white flags hit social media about 7 a.m., sources said.

“Why are there white flags on top of the Brooklyn Bridge?” City Council member Mark Weprin tweeted at 9:34 a.m.

It was not immediately clear how the white flags, which are usually a military symbol for surrender, got there.

Thomas Jefferson. He Tried To Warn Us.

Too Many to hide from.

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government. He understood actual history, the nature of God, his laws and the nature of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand today. Jefferson really knew his stuff. A voice from the past to lead us in the future:

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the white House for a group of the brightest minds in the nation at that time. He made this statement: “This is perhaps the assembly of the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”

 

“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe .”
– Thomas Jefferson

“The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.”
— Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”
– Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property – until their children wake-up homeless on
the continent their fathers conquered.”
