“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Carbonite abandons Rush, investors abandon Carbonite

Hahaha....the free market at work ladies and gentlemen. Despite Rush's apology to democrat plant Sandra Fluke for calling her a slut and prostitute for wanting her birth control covered by Georgetown's insurance carrier, a long-time sponsor of Rush's show, Carbonite, pulled it's support from the show. Within 24 hours, investors in Carbonite pulled their support of it and the stock dove 12% and continues to fall today. Heh heh.

Among the reasons for investors abandoning Carbonite is the failure of Obama and the media to get the vapors when MS-NBC turd-breath Ed Shultz called Laura Ingraham a "right wing slut". Obama didn't call Laura the way he did Ms. Fluke, to see if she was OK and no sponsors of MS-NBC announced they were withdrawing their association.

Carbonite CEO David Friend said that he hopes this would contribute to a more civilized public discourse, but where was his concern when Ed Shultz said what he did?

I love when the free market punishes somebody for being reactive and stupid.....heh heh.

Bonus: what does this picture have to do with the post?

Hans Solo. Got frozen in Carbonite.

Now would be a good opportunity for other companies like Mozy to ally with Rush and push the 'we agree with free speech' to take up the clients deserting Carbonite.

What a bunch of doofuses (doofi?).

Very nice call anon! You win the virtual cookie.

And yes, I'll bet there are companies lining up to sponsor Rush since his fans are loyal to the point of investing in, not just patronizing, his sponsors.

<======Redneck, neo-con, not-a-single-unique-thought-process, wannabe intelligent humans trying desparately to fit in with the rich crowd... Pathetic that you couldn"t follow someone who was intelligent rather than a recovering addict. Shame you will be the first asking for handouts when you turn 62.
