What is with Florida? What? Did something happen to the drinking water that is allowing such rank stupidity to propogate? You guys have Rush right there, and still the AYFKM? awards abound. I have spent hours studying the elections you folks have coming up, and have found that my eyes are crossing as I try to ascertain whether or not you actually have any candidates other than Marco Rubio with some integrity left.
It’s making MY head spin, and that’s something to write home about.
How do you folks do it?
Explosive outrage as Dec. 7 remembers Muslims instead of Japan attack on U.S.
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Explosive outrage is being unleashed on a popular supermarket chain after it published a 2010 calendar marking the date of Dec. 7 with the Islamic New Year, while eliminating any mention of Pearl Harbor Day, commemorating the 1941 attack on the U.S. by Japan.
Joyce Kaufman, a talk-show host on WFTL Radio in South Florida, made the “date which will live in infamy” the centerpiece of her broadcast today, expressing outrage at Publix Supermarkets for its calendar omission.
“We have guys that are fighting Islamic fundamentalists right now in Afghanistan and guarding them from ruining what little freedom they have achieved in Iraq,” said Kaufman. “And now I gotta celebrate their new year over here in my country when they’re getting on airplanes and trying to blow up planes out of the sky in Detroit? I gotta have their New Year’s Day on my calendar and not Pearl Harbor Day? We’ve lost our minds!”
Kaufman and many callers to her station called it a “slap in the face” to all those who fought for America’s freedoms over the years.
“I’m done,” she said. “I’m not walking into a Publix until there’s a formal apology. I’m not walking into a Publix until the calendars have all been pulled. I’m not walking into a Publix until they reissue a calendar and re-evaluate what they put on their calendars. It’s a free country, but I don’t have to shop there.”
Some enraged listeners called in to suggest consumers shred the calendars and mail them to the supermarket’s corporate headquarters in Lakeland, Fla.
One man claimed he spoke with two managers at two separate Publix stores, both of whom confirmed the 2009 edition of the calendar also had no mention of Pearl Harbor Day.
Go over, read the rest, and for you Floridians; boycott?
