Paypal and Business Stupidity
By Good Ole Boy/ Jim
Businesses, the media, and celebrities have been increasingly becoming outwardly politically vocal. Most all are coming out on the left and many try to stifle free speech which is odd since they have always been ready to scream their first amendment rights were being stifled.
Paypal jumped on the political bandwagon of the left recently after saying Atlas Shrugs is a hate site and stating they were going to take away their Paypal donation ability. Paypal never said anything to the Muslim terrorist friendly sites using Paypal and undoubtedly some of that money provided by the Paypal conduit funded terrorists that have and will kill people. Paypal has now backed off Atlas Shrugs but they have made a change to Gpal as I have. Find Gpal at https://www.gpal.net/
Businesses are supposed to try to garner as many buyers of their products as possible. Why be politically vocal and proactive when it will lose them customers? If I was on the board I would want those people pushing for less business out of the company. If a publicly held, the stockholders should be upset and let the company know.
Google, BP America, Business Week, Hewlet Packard, Johnson & Johnson, Coca-Cola, Levi Straus, and many others are supporting Cap and Trade which will cost them money and increase the cost of their products for the public. These companies and more are facing a boycott that will affect their bottom line. http://www.nocapandtrade.com/boycott/ If you feel like me help make those companies aware we don’t appreciate them coming out for higher energy costs and higher costs for products.
The press and TV news journalists for many years were somewhat neutral politically. Now that is not the case. Most are decidedly leftist. You can no longer expect to hear unbiased truthful reporting. Sometimes it is outright lies. Recently President Obama has enjoyed a total love fest by the mainstream media of the likes never seen before. Fox News is the only exception and it too is slanted, but to right slightly. On MSNBC Chris Mathews went so far for Obama that he said he felt tingles up his legs when Obama spoke.(makes me wonder about his sexual orientation).
Celebrities are no exception anymore. It was first really apparent in 1972 when Jane Fonda (Hanoi Jane) went to North Vietnam and became a willing propaganda tool for the communists. She even sat sighting down the sight of an anti aircraft gun that was used against our airmen. The full picture has been scrubbed from google you now don’t see the whole gun.
Sean Penn, Woody Harrelson, George Clooney, the Dixie Chicks are among the most outspoken. Some like the Dixie Chicks suffered because of it. The Dixie Chicks audience was mainly rural which supported George W. Bush and they had the stupidity to badmouth him. Sean Penn has an affinity for communist dictators and has pretty much shown himself to be a total nitwit. Most of the celebrities are leftist as is most of them in La La land and the left coast. When they talk out about their leftist proclivities they lose at the box office and lose roles. Why would a producer spending millions on a production risk it with someone who is insulting a large part of the nation? There is free speech but I and others can’t mix politics with our jobs and the stars of past in Holly Wood understood it. We all should let those who don’t know it by not buying tickets to see them or buying their DVDs.
If companies, celebrities the media and press want to thumb their nose at us we should let them know it is not appropriate for business, by hitting them where they will take notice, their wallet. Shareholders should vote out CEOs who push their companies to lose business and go against the publics best interest.
