With All the Talk About Strikes & Boycotts Against Walmart … Time Lapse Video Shows Record Black Friday Sales at Walmart
WALMART IS NO TWINKIE …
Strikes and boycotts against Walmart in an effort to harm them economically. In the end they were a union epic fail. Who are you going to believe, the Left or your lying eyes? Check out the time lapse video below recording the record sales on Black Friday at Walmart. The Grinches on the LEFT tried to make it a miserable experience for shoppers, but they failed in a big way. If anything, their protests may have served to boost sales ala Chick-fil-a. As reported at Breitbart.com, Walmart reported record sales.
Despite union efforts to target retailers like Walmart, businesses are reporting record Black Friday traffic – the biggest sign yet that the unions are out of touch with the American people. Starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, Walmart put its products on Black Friday sale, sparking a run to the stores and earning the stores record sales
Scott Van Duzer Faces Boycott after “Bear Hug” of Obama … Whines There is No Middle Line …Shut Up and Make Pizza
SHUT UP A MAKE PIZZA …
Scott Van Duzer, the owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, FL and the man pictured the other day giving Barack Obama a bear hug is now complaining that he might be boycotted. Duzer, an Obama supporter stated that“People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant. There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.” Hmm, who knew that giving the President of the United States was acting in the middle of the road? When one owns a business that wants to market to all folks, well then one best be careful what one says or does. Actions have consequences.
Mr. Duzer, people have a right to boycott you. That is their freedom of speech. Just like you had a right to bear hug the president and make any comments in support of Obama. As much as any normal and literate business owner would know could have ramifications. So basically, Deal with it. Hey Scott Van Duzer, can you say Chick-fil-a? At least you do not have elected officials telling you that you do not have a right to open a business in their cities because of your political or personal opinions.
“People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant,” Scott Van Duzer, 46, told POLITICO. “There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”
The owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, Fla., said that both Democrats and Republicans are welcome in his store. But he also said he thinks Mitt Romney’s running mate Rep. Paul Ryan — whose sculpted abs are thanks to intense P90X training sessions — would lose to the president in a workout battle.
“I think Obama could take him,” Van Duzer said, laughing. “Obama looked pretty fast and pretty quick on his feet.”
What a joke the yahoos are at YAHOO. Because I am most certain that all of you whining about how Van Duzer was being treated felt the same way about Dan Cathy and the Chick-fil-a controversy where not only did the LEFT want to boycott them but also politicians in Chicago and Boston tried to prevent them from opening franchises.
Another user, this one checking in from Brooklyn, N.Y., 1,165 miles away, chirped: “Really, conservatards? You try to trash a man’s business because he likes a different political candidate than you? What scum you all are. Go crawl back in your holes. SCOTT VAN DUZER IS MY HERO!”
Of the 229 comments listed on the page (30 of them “filtered,” one removed for violating terms of service), only two were published pre-bear hug, the most recent coming in 2010.
In the end, stick to making pizza if you do not want controversy. However, if you wish to branch out and seek the fame and glory from Barack Obama, then you best be ready for the backlash.
Occupy protesters plan on hurting the 99% by their actions …
According to Reuters, Occupy thugs plan on shutting down West Coast ports Monday in an attempt to cripple a key supply chain of American commerce. So this is what Obama is endorsing from the Occupy protesters? In a time where the US economy is struggling, Occupy idiots plan on trying to harm the economy.
Anti-Wall Street protesters, hoping to briefly cripple a key supply chain of American commerce and re-energize their movement, plan to attempt to block major West Coast ports on Monday.
By marching on U.S. ports from California to Alaska, organizers look to call attention to economic inequalities in the country and a financial system they complain is unfairly tilted toward the wealthy.
The planned action comes after the Occupy movement that began in New York in September has seen its tent camps in most big West Coast cities dismantled in police raids, leaving the movement looking for new avenues to voice its discontent.
The Gateway Pundit is reporting that it was Barack Obama’s former “Green” czar who called for the closing of the western US ports. Of course it was, water seeks its own level. America, this is what Obama is at heart, a community agitator.
So who do these misguided Occupy fools think they are harming by their thug stunts? As stated by the Lonely Conservative, “to the one percent this will be a petty annoyance. To the people whose livelihoods depend on their paychecks, this will mean a day of lost wages right before Christmas.” I wonder whether these Occupy insanoids give any of this a second thought? Then again, one would actually have to have the ability to think.
However, one would think that many individuals would be upset by the closing of the ports. Unions might have an issue with such a disruption. There comes a point when all will turn against the Occupy movement as it represents socialism and a threat to democracy. It is becoming more and more obvious that the actions of the Occupy protesters are harming the 99%, not the supposed 1%.
But unlike last time, when the area’s major unions gave tacit or outright approval, many of them see Monday’s action as disruptive and unnecessary.
And some occupation activists are labeling it as too confrontational, with the protest’s potential for violence detracting from Occupy’s stated intention of narrowing the chasm between rich and poor.
“Support is one thing,” Robert McEllrath, president of the International Longshoreman and Warehouse Union, wrote to his members last week. “Outside groups attempting to co-opt our struggle in order to advance a broader agenda is quite another and one that is destructive to our democratic process.”
EXIT QUESTION: How is it that Barack Obama does not condemn the Occupy protesters who are destructive to our democratic process?
The Occupy Wall Street protesters lose again. OWS called for boycotts and Americans responded with Buycotts.
Much to the OWS dismay, Black Friday sales increased by a record 6.6%. As the OWS protesters tried to prevent Americans from going to businesses like WalMart and Best Buy, Americans provided their own “Freedom of Speech” and spoke with their wallets.
Despite 9% unemployment, more Americans below the poverty level, record number on food stamps, 17% believing the country is headed in the right direction and only 8% rating the US economy as good or excellent, 152 million people came together to spend $11.4 billion on Black Friday. Granted, this is only one day … but it is better than the alternative.
Black Friday sales increased 6.6 percent to the largest amount ever as U.S. consumers shrugged off 9 percent unemployment and went shopping.
Consumers spent $11.4 billion, ShopperTrak said in a statement yesterday. Foot traffic rose 5.1 percent on Black Friday, according to the Chicago-based research firm.
As many as 152 million people were expected to shop at stores and websites on Black Friday, up 10 percent from last year, the National Retail Federation said. The Washington-based NRF is scheduled to release Thanksgiving weekend sales today.
Sadly, many individuals who went out on Black Friday and purchased items acted in less than an appropriate manner, it is not any less inappropriate or classless than the OWS protesters who failed to convince anyone to boycott Walmart or the other big boys on the block.
President Obama must be caught in the middle and not know what to say? Does he praise the economic spending or say nothing because his endorsed OWS protest movement failed in their efforts?
OCCUPY WALL STREET PROTESTERS, NAZI’S AND COMMUNISTS … OH MY!!! OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS HAVE STEPPED IN IT THIS TIME …
Not only does President Barack Obama and Democrats support the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protest movement, it appears that they have two move organizations that have come on board. The American Nazi party throws its support behind the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ folks. To second the Gate Way Pundit, Wow, just Wow! I will also add in a YIKES!
Check this out from Weasel Zippers as we will not be linking to the actual source for obvious reasons.
The “Occupy Wall Street” Movement — WhiteHonor
The foremost authority on National Socialism in America has this to say about “Occupy” [ANP leader Rocky Suhayda — ed.] :
What is really MISSING — is the “MOVEMENT” from these popular protests — its time to pull WN heads out of their collective ass’s, and JOIN IN the attack on Judeo-Capitalism. What do you suggest? That WN Working Class White people DEFEND the Judeo-Capitalists? IF the “movement” wasn’t so PATHETIC it would be OUT THERE — LEADING these protests! The fact that its these “lefties” as you call them, who are picking up the ball and running with it — only shows how much more in tune THEY are with the fed up masses of White Workers, than the fossilized, reactionary “right-wing”. WHO holds the WEALTH and POWER in this country — the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO is therefore the #1 ENEMY who makes all this filth happen — the JUDEO-CAPITALISTS. WHO therefore do WN need to FIGHT? My heart is right there with these people, perhaps someday the “movement” will SHOW the same COURAGE and DEDICATION that these people OUT THERE FIGHTING are SHOWING!
Sincerely, ROCKY SUHAYDA Hail Victory! 88!
But wait, its not only the Nazi’s that support the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement, its the Communists as well.
Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Democrats have supported the Occupy Wall Street crowd, really? They support hate and Anti-semitism? Seriously? Wasn’t it Nancy Pelosi that said the Tea Party carried swastikas (VIDEO)? Where is Pelosi now, hell the Occupy Wall Street protesters have the backing of the American Nazi party … um, those folks actually do carry swastikas.
This is what Obama, Pelosi and Democrats are supporting? I do not want to hear that it is just one or two people that are expressing these views, the Occupy crowd has the backing of entire hate organizations. The Tea Party was branded racists because of one fictitious individual who supposedly spit on Pelosi et all, even though it was never proved. How can any one not say that the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protesters are not racist? For a party that is so supposedly against racism, how do Democrats support a movement that is backed by the American Nazi party?
Remember this diddy from Nancy Pelosi … when she called Town Hall Tea party folks ‘AstroTurf” and said that they were carrying swastika and other symbols. What do you say now Nancy regarding the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters?
Actions Have Consequences … QVC Cancels Hanoi Jane Fonda’s Appearance Over Protests to Her Vietnam War Opposition
Jane Fonda … Cry Me a River.
It’s about time that Hanoi Jane understands that there are consequences to one’s actions.This delusional lib actually thinks that she can be allowed to use her First Amendment rights of freedom of speech to write a book; however, others are not allowed their freedom of speech to protest and denounce the same said book. Jane Fonda actually is whining (link is to Fonda’s liberal blog) over people protesting her book and her shilling it on QVC? Seriously? This from the woman, better known as Hanoi Jane, who sided with the enemy during the Vietnam War. How ironic that the leftist, pinko is now trying to make $’s using the capitalist system of QVC to sell books. Imagine taking pics with the very people who were shooting down American service men in Vietnam and some who this clown thinks she has never done anything against her country.
In 1972 “Hanoi” Jane Fonda applauded an NVA anti-aircraft gun crew during her trip to North Vietnam.
I was to have been on QVC today to introduce my book, “Prime Time,” about aging and the life cycle. The network said they got a lot of calls yesterday criticizing me for my opposition to the Vietnam War and threatening to boycott the show if I was allowed to appear. I am, to say the least, deeply disappointed that QVC caved to this kind of insane pressure by some well funded and organized political extremist groups.
Bottom line, this has gone on far too long, this spreading of lies about me! None of it is true. NONE OF IT! I love my country. I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us.
Really Jane? Because the picture above of you with the enemy didn’t hurt the United States or the soldiers fighting for this country or those being held in POW camps. You just go on believing that lie. As stated at Jammie Wearing Fool, all one has to do is a simple Google search to find Fonda’s long record of treason.
Let us not forget Dana Pretzer’s SM’s commentary on Jane Fonda from 2007
KUDOS to QVC for actually listening to the people who use their services and who are protesting this traitor.
UPDATE I: Imagine if the outrage still exists against Hanoi Jane after all these years, what is the protest and boycotts going to be like against anyone, business or media outlet that pays Casey Anthony for making blood money off of Caylee Anthony?
UNREAL, The Walt Disney Company Wants to Profit from the Bravery of US Navy Seals who Killed Bin Laden by Trademarking “Seal Team 6”
Walt Disney should be rolling over in his grave … and be ashamed of what his company has become.
It would appear that it is not just President Barack Obama who wants to “spike the football” of the heroics of the US Navy Seal Team 6, but now the Walt Disney Company wants to profit from the actions of these heroes and trademark “Seal Team 6″. WTF!!! How does some one get to trademark a name that is part of a US Government military name? Seriously, how is not a government entity part of the public domain?
The trademark applications came on May 3rd, two days after the operation that killed Bin Laden… and two days after “Seal Team 6? was included in thousands of news articles and TV programs focusing on the operation.
Disney’s trademark applications for “Seal Team 6? cover clothing, footwear, headwear, toys, games and “entertainment and education services,” among other things.
How sad is it that five years after the disappearance and death of Natalee Holloway, there are some in Aruba that still place blame on Natalee Holloway’s family for the plight of Joran Van der Sloot. Makes me want to visit, NOT! Does any one wonder why people are still calling for a boycott of Aruba?
Vanderbilt – ’06
So how did the news papers in Aruba cover the story of not-so favored son Joran Van der Sloot and his latest exploits that have once again landed him in jail and being interrogated by law enforcement in the death of a girl? Because Aruba did not take the murder of Natalee Holloway seriously in 2005 and decide to prosecute her killer, Joran Van der Sloot was enabled to kill again. This time it was 21 year old Stephany Flores Ramírez in Peru. And Joran Van der Sloot was charged with extortion in the US.
Justice in South America is in ‘hot pursuit’ of the fugitive Joran van der Sloot, according to the media there. The Chilean police confirmed Joran had crossed the Peruvian border into Chili on Monday May 31st. Apparently there is a hunt down going on in the Chilean harbor city Arica. Roadblocks around the city are to prevent him from escaping.
According to the Telegraaf, Joran has confessed the murder of the 21-year old Stephany Tatiana Flores Ramírez. The newspaper reports that during a telephone conversation, he admitted to having stabbed the girl to death. That telephone conversation was supposedly held with a Dutch poker-friend. Rumors on him committing suicide were buzzing about yesterday. However, these are totally unfounded.
Thankfully, we find out this little tid bit of information that the Netherlands has no treaty with Peru that “when” Joran Van der Sloot is found guilty of murder that he will not be able to serve his time in his home country. Instead Joran will be spending time in a Peruvian prison.
For that matter, there is no extradition treaty between the Netherlands and Peru, says Özlem Canel, spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the Netherlands. If Joran were to be arrested on Dutch territory due to an international wanted notice, it would be difficult to extradite him, she says. However, Ann Angela, spokeswoman of the OM on Aruba states that an extradition treaty obligates the person’s extradition. “But is could also occur on voluntary basis.” If Joran were to be arrested and ends up in the prison in Peru, there is no treaty with the Netherlands to let him serve his time in his home country.
The reaction in Aruba ran the spectrum of vile hatred of Joran to the sad and pathetic excuses and continued blame of Natalee’s family that we have come all to accustomed with Aruba. Anita van der Sloot, Joran’s mother was shocked. Why Anita, because you figured that all the enabling and covering up of the Natalee Holloway disappearance and death by the late Paulus Van der Sloot would have taught your psychopath son a lesson?
Joran’s mother, artist and teacher Anita van der Sloot was shocked by the reports regarding her son, says the Dutch lawyer of Bert de Rooij in the Dutch press. De Rooij, who represented Joran in the Netherlands, states that the arrest and the new imputations have caused the family much sorrow. Meanwhile, others are very happy with the apprehension of ‘that psychopath’ as he is called on the streets. Reactions on the island on the murder and Joran’s arrest vary from ‘finally justice’ to appeals to castrate him, rape or even hang him.
Then there are those in Aruba that still blame Natalee’s family for the fact that Joran Van der Sloot has killed again. How sick are these people? That is correct, makes one really want to vacation in Aruba, doesn’t it?
For that matter, not everyone is convinced of Joran’s guilt. There are rumors circulating on internet that it’s ‘all very coincidental’. Everything is supposedly a conspiracy of the family of Natalee Holloway. For the time being, the government is not elaborating on whether Joran’s apprehension with all its worldwide publicity, has any consequences for the image of Aruba or the tourism.
Check out how Bondia covered the story of extortion. Then again, maybe readers only need to visit Dilma Arends‘ of Bondia Facebook and see what that crack investigative journalist has to say about Joran Van der Sloot and the extortion.

Or maybe Julia Renfro’s Aruba Today where the front page is devoted to Richard Gere and a wedding on Eagle Beach, there’s some hard hitting journalism for you. You have to get to page 10 before there is any report of Joran Van der Sloot’s arrest.
Diario Aruba reported it as follows and looky here, front page.
Cities who boycott and Democrats best beware of what WE THE PEOPLE think …
President Barack Obama has called the new immigration law in Arizona misguided, Obama minions like Napolitano and Holder have criticized the law without reading it, Mexican President Calderon critized the law in front of a joint session of Congress while Democrats stood and applauded and cities like Boston, Los Angeles and San Diego have called for boycots of Arizona.
However, 68% of Americans are opposed to the boycott of Arizona over it’s new immigration. Cities that do boycott might be mindful of the backlash they will receive in return, like in the case of San Diego.
Boston and Los Angeles were among the first to announce boycotts of Arizona, but 68% of Americans say it’s a bad idea for other cities or states to boycott Arizona over its new immigration law.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that only 14% of Adults think it’s a good idea for cities or states to join that boycott. Ten percent (10%) don’t care one way or the other, and nine percent (9%) more are undecided.
One might ask what these cities and Democrats alike are thinking when all polls show that Americans are overwhelmingly in favor of the new Arizona immigration law and in favor of law enforcement having the right to verify immigration status of those already stopped in the act of a crime.
- 84% of Americans are in favor of requiring people to show documents proving their immigration status
- A Fox News poll finds 65 percent of American voters think states should have right to make their own immigration laws
- 59% of Americans in Favor of Arizona Anti-Illegal Immigration Law
- 55% Favor Immigration Law Like Arizona’s For Their State
- 67% Say Mexico Does Not Want To Stop Illegal Immigration
RUT-ROH, It’s the law of unintended consequences that should have been easily predicted.
Suddenly when the “boycott” tables are turned, California, namely San Diego tourism whines as many in Arizona are canceling their trips to San Diego. Go figure, what a shocker.
San Diego tourism leaders and hoteliers fear they could lose a sizable chunk of business this summer from valued “Zonies” who are so angered by elected leaders’ recent censure of Arizona for its illegal-immigration law that they’re mounting an informal boycott of their own.
The San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau and several hotels report receiving e-mails and letters from Arizona visitors saying they intend to change their plans to travel here in light of local outcry over their home state’s anti-illegal-immigration stance.
As Red State brilliantly posted in SD’s comment to AZ …
