Anger is boiling over at the chairman of the Barilla pasta company after he vowed to only feature heterosexual couples in commercials — and added that anyone offended by his anti-gay stance could buy a different brand of noodles.
Guido Barilla told Italian radio on Wednesday that he would never use a gay family to promote the world’s leading brand of pasta, according to The Guardian.
“For us the concept of the sacred family remains one of the basic values of the company,” Barilla said. “I would not do it but not out of a lack of respect for homosexuals who have the right to do what they want without bothering others…[but] I don’t see things like they do and I think the family that we speak to is a classic family.”

The president of Barilla is apologizing for saying that he would never use a gay family in the pasta maker’s ads.
Guido Barilla said in an Italian radio interview that his pasta is for the traditional family and said gay people could eat another pasta if they did not like his message.
“We accept his invitation to not eat his pasta,” said Aurelio Mancuso, president of gay-rights group Equality Italia, in a statement in Italian.
Boycotting Twitter users shared the hashtag #boicottabarilla, or “boycott Barilla.”
But Barilla quickly walked back his comments.

Whatever are the Freeperati going to do with all that pasta they just ran out and bought??
Gay Nazis strike again.

Now that he has demonstrated his cowardice, I would urge heterosexuals to boycott his pasta. Sell it to the fags, chickensh_t. You’re so scared of them …

Just wow! I would have preferred that the president of this company not have made a statement that I wholeheartedly agree with. But having made it and allowing the Gay Mafia to force him to cower and back off has created a bigger problem for him
I have a pantry-full of Barilla products in our pantry.
Out they go!
The calculus is simple. Which is the biggest market? The perverts? Or normal traditional families most of which are disgusted with aggressively militant deviants?

You know – maybe it was a marketing ploy aimed at the Freeperati?

Tough-talking Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is warning civilians who embark on armed patrols in remote desert terrain that they could end up with “30 rounds fired into” them by one of his deputies.
His unapologetically terse comments came Tuesday after a member of an Arizona Minuteman border-watch movement was arrested over the weekend for pointing a rifle at a Maricopa County sheriff’s deputy he apparently mistook for a drug smuggler.
“If they continue this there could be some dead militia out there,” Arpaio said.
Richard Malley, 49, was heavily armed with two others dressed in camouflage Saturday night along Interstate 8 near Gila Bend, a known drug-trafficking corridor in the desert about 70 miles southwest of Phoenix, when he confronted the deputy who was on patrol conducting surveillance, authorities said.
According to court records, the deputy and his partner stopped their vehicle, then flashed their headlights and honked their horn, a common practice used by law enforcement to trick drug smugglers into thinking the car is there to transfer their narcotics load and lure them out of hiding.

Obviously, the MCSO and the Minutemen need some better coordination to avoid incidents in the future. It could be as simple as the two agreeing on one-day challenges and passwords.
That is, when one group meets another they yell out their challenge word, and the other group has to yell their password if they have one. If they don’t, all bets are off.
BADADADADADADA POWPOWPOWPOW BLAMBLAMBLAM
“Hey – I thought the countersign was still “Polo”?
“No-that was yesterday.”
And the words are issued out once a day to both groups, so after a 24 hour period they are invalid, and a new challenge and password are in effect.

What could possibly go wrong?
Here is a theory – how about armed private citizens patrolling THEIR OWN PROPERTY and not trying to be cops out in the middle of the desert?!!!!
I’m not a cop, but if I saw some armed guys in cammo beside the road at night, I’d have my own gun out in a heartbeat. And if one of those armed men pointed a gun at me, I’d be in fear of my life and might well shoot.
If I’m out in the desert hiking, and someone points a gun at me, what do you expect me to do? Ask them if they are militia?

He shoots them – they shoot him – win-win!
EXACTLY! The LEO community has been militarizing and separating itself form “civilians” for the past 20 years.The police are not your friend! Nor is Sheriff Joe it seems.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the real deal. He is a true patriot who is standing up to Obama on border enforcement. He has also made more progress than anyone on addressing Obama’s fraudulent occupation of the white house.Perhaps this is the news media’s way of broadcasting a vulnerability. The liberals want this man dead.

I had no idea that liberals were so crafty. Guess I missed the memo.
And now –The Best Post Of The Thread!
I’ll be blunt about it. Based on my appearance and usual clothing, I wouldn’t trust some of these militia types not to shoot me.

I received notice of this in my e-mail today through Dick Morris. I usually ignore Morris but the class action lawsuit excited me and I was happy to donate… (video info about the suit and also posted a link to the site at my blog)

Exciting until Klayman was involved.
Nothing will happen except him lining his pockets.
If this was Levin, it would be an entire other matter.

What sort of totally incompetent ignoramus failed to note that, with very little research, involving effort not characterized as intellectually challenging, it is possible to understand the concept of standing.
Individuals, including groups of individuals, do not now, nor have ever had the ability Constitutionally to challenge any branch of government.
