Suicide On Live TV

 

Robert “Budd” Dwyer, shown here, was Treasurer of the state of Pennsylvania in the 1980s before being accused of receiving bribes. Due to the stature of his position in state government Dwyer’s highly public trial was broadcast on live television.

In the midst of the trial Dwyer pulled a gun out of a manilla envelope, put it in his mouth and pulled the trigger. Millions saw it happen live on TV.

Papa Johns

 


Papa Johns Pizza sales are down. Hmmm. I wonder what’s causing that? Could it be that they are the official pizza of the NFL? The CEO, John Schnatter, blames the NFL.

Papa John’s International Inc. founder John Schnatter is going after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, saying weak handling of the league’s national-anthem controversy has hammered sales of his pizza.

“The NFL has hurt us by not resolving the current debacle to the players’ and owners’ satisfaction,” Schnatter, who serves as the pizza chain’s chairman and chief executive officer, said on a conference call. “NFL leadership has hurt Papa John’s shareholders.”

It’s also hurt sales of Nike and Under Armor, but that’s self imposed, since both of those companies virtue signaled and came out on the side of the players. Turns out pissing off white people who love the country isn’t a good business model. Who knew? Certainly not the NFL owners and the league office.

The remarks follow a controversy over NFL football players protesting during the national anthem, a movement that started last season. The demonstrations have sparked calls for a boycott and raised concerns among league sponsors. But Schnatter’s comments mark the highest-profile example of an NFL partner publicly blaming the outcry for hurting business.

Isn’t it nice seeing patriotic Americans using boycotts? As Kurt Schlichter said, “The left is gonna hate the new rules.” Those rules include using the left’s tactics against them.

Goodell, whose contract is up for renewal, has taken flak for not resolving the controversy more quickly. The flap has even drawn tweets from President Donald Trump, who called for owners to fire or bench players who refuse to stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

“Leadership starts at the top, and this is an example of poor leadership,” Schnatter said.

Ya think? Of course the owners are to blame as well. The sight of owners like Jerry Jones virtue signaling while kneeling with his players and Arthur Blank doing the same by locking arms with his players was not only disgusting but stupid. The NFL has become the WHPWPL

It’s hard to quantify the connection between the NFL and pizza sales, but Papa John’s did post disappointing results in the latest quarter. Its shares fell as much as 13 percent on Wednesday — the most in two years — after same-store sales missed analysts’ estimates. The Louisville, Kentucky-based company also trimmed its revenue and profit forecasts for the year.

Of course they did. When the Democrats have been guilty of a ridiculously offensive race-baiting ad.

Via Daily Caller:

A CNN op-ed lambasted Virginia Republicans for “fearmongering” during the state’s gubernatorial election Tuesday, but offered no criticism of Democrats for doing the same.

Author S. Karthick Ramakrishnan, a public policy professor at the University of California, railed against Republican candidate Ed Gillespie’s campaign for airing ads about MS-13’s gang presence in Virginia, but he had no criticism for Democrat candidate Ralph Northam. While supposedly critical of “fearmongering,” the op-ed was devoid of any reference to the infamous pro-Northam ad which portrayed Gillespie supporters as confederate-flag-toting Nazis who want to run over minority children with trucks.

Gillespie has centered his campaign on Virginia’s violent crime and high number of members of Latino gang MS-13. And while it is true that police in Virginia’s wealthiest county are equaled–if not outnumbered–by MS-13 members, Ramakrishnan nevertheless pounced on the ads, claiming Gillespie was actually pushing hatred of Mexicans and residents of South America.

UK Daily Mail Refuses to Capitalize “God” in Texas Christian Hero Post — But Capitalizes “Allah” in Previous Post

 

When did the UK Daily Mail become a God-hating rag?

The Daily Mail tonight reported on Texas hero gunman Stephen Willeford who chased down Devin Patrick Kelley after he shot up First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs.

Stephen Willeford is a hero and he thanked God in his first interview since the Sunday massacre.

But The Daily Mail didn’t see it that way.
The godless Daily Mail refused to capitalize and honor “God” in their report.

Just A Little Nibble

 


Camels can be aggressive with one another and don’t usually display violent behavior towards humans. They even enjoy sniffing humans and will sometimes play with their hair. In this case, though, it looks like one camel was beyond frustrated and took his anger out on a pretty innocent tourist.

 

That’s One Cruel Joke, Guys

 


This lady was definitely freaked out by the fact that her husband was holding a sting ray to her back. No, nothing happened to her, but her reaction has made her famous. Her priceless expression has sparked the creation of many memes. With the recent passing of Steve Irwin, I’m sure she was extra sensitive, since we all learned how powerful the sting of those rays actually is.
