How we got corporations to Dump the RNC
“Earlier this year, CREDO teamed up with our friends at ColorOfChange as they launched a campaign demanding that corporations take a stand against Donald Trump’s hateful and toxic candidacy by refusing to sponsor the Republican National Convention (RNC).
With the Republican Party poised to coronate Donald Trump as its leader and presidential nominee tomorrow, we thought we’d give you an update on what has turned out to be a remarkably successful campaign.
Thanks to intense pressure from activists like you, in March, Coca-Cola became the first corporation to significantly reduce its contributions from previous years.1 Coca-Cola’s decision, which was covered widely in a variety of news outlets, opened the door for us to ramp up the pressure on other corporations. ColorOfChange worked behind the scenes, meeting with corporations to make the case for divesting from the RNC, while activists from ColorOfChange, CREDO and other progressive allies kept up the public pressure, showing the depth of support for the campaign.
By all accounts, our campaign to pressure corporations to disassociate their brands from Trump’s toxic campaign has been a huge success as we have turned the RNC into a gathering of right-wing racist pariahs shunned by America’s marquee companies.
At the end of April, Microsoft became the second major corporation to publicly back off from making any cash contributions to the RNC.2 In the following weeks, Apple, Wells Fargo, General Electric, UPS, Motorola, JPMorgan Chase, Ford, and Amgen all announced that they would not be convention sponsors.3,4 Amazon and Hewlett-Packard subsequently joined Microsoft in deciding not to make any cash contributions to the RNC.5,6 Even conservative corporate giant Walmart appeared to bow to our public pressure by significantly reducing its contributions from previous years.7
The Republican Party had been trying, for months, to downplay the success of our campaign, but just last week, news broke that RNC organizers were reportedly reduced to begging extreme right-wing Republican billionaire Sheldon Adelson to make up a $6 million fundraising shortfall. The letter blamed “negative publicity about our potential nominee” for drying up donations and named additional corporations that were either not repeating previous levels of support or had backed out of funding commitments.8 It was clear validation that our campaign has worked to keep corporations from sponsoring Trump’s hate, and to hold the Republican Party financially accountable for elevating a fascist demagogue as its leader.”

Hurry back, you handsome devil! 😛
Hey, I’m deadly allergic to the sting of bumblebees, but I’m smart enough to know if I stand still as one flies by or admire them when I see them sleeping on a flower petal in the morning, I have nothing to worry about. What I do worry about is that I rarely see them anymore. F you Monsanto!!

Trump Campaign Admits Parts of Melania’s Speech Were Copied From Michelle Obama http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2016/07/20/meredith_mciver_takes_responsibility_for_melania_trump_speech_disaster.html
“A Trump speechwriter stepped forward Wednesday to take the blame for plagiarizing lines from Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech for Melania Trump.
Meredith McIver, who describes herself as an “in-house staff writer for The Trump Organization,” released this pretty amazing statement to the press.”
Still not buying it. Her statement contradicts itself: “A person she has always liked is Michelle Obama. Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama’s speeches.”
So which is it? She was given passages from Michelle Obama’s speech but didn’t know they were from Michelle Obama’s speech “as examples”? This makes no sense. If she didn’t check how would she know that? And since when does a republican staffer look to the Obamas for inspiration? Melania probably lifted the quotes and didn’t tell the staffer anything more than that and she failed to vet them properly. Minion falls on sword.
Ditz for FLOTUS
Scapegoat for copy-cat Melania.
It’s hard out there for a gazillionaire!
He’s just plain delusional.
Walker: Approval numbers in Wisconsin will improve if Walker doesn’t run for president
What did Obama say about Melania’s thievery?
So far they’re sidestepping the issue.
Oh you know they must be LOLing.
Literally rolling on the floor, with a ‘thank you Jesus’!!

Ain’t nutting’ yuppie about matsumoto—you eat it on the street sticky fingers and all.
That blender I was telling you about turns ice into snow (this magical white stuff classy was telling me about, more on that later). I thought about getting some of those cone thingies to hold it in, but i just put it in a bowl, meh–just as good. It’s hot down here, man.
I might get that blender—I love that stuff. Bowls are best — you get that syrup locally?
yeah, I went down to the syrup elves and picked up a barrel! lol. Seriously though, I just ordered an assortment at the same place i got the blender. Get the high RPM one if you want snow though, not sure about the others.
I’m just going to post a blank page maybe then wave will grace us devil worshipers with her presence.
