As a fashion professional I can also tell you that the clothing they produce is low grade garbage meant to break down quickly so you will have to purchase more.

This is Richard Hayne, President and CEO of Urban Outfitters. He’s also a supporter of Rick Santorum and donated over $13,000 to him. He’s against gay marriage and abortion.His company pulled a pro-gay shirt back in 08, they also blatantly ripped off an Etsy designers work, featured a t-shirt for women that said “eat less” and most recently had a card with a “tranny” slur on in.Why do you shop at this store? I imagine because you weren’t aware of these facts. Now you are, so stop shopping there.
He looks like the villain in every single Disney Channel original movie.
And I used to love this store… What a douche-bag.

Advertises flee but websites that help men #cheat come in to pick up the slack?! -Rush, that speaks for itself

thedailywhat:

Follow Up of the Day: Rush Limbaugh today remained defiant, even as his show continues to hemorrhage sponsors.

By last count, 34 advertisers have now pulled their spots from Limbaugh’s syndicated radio program, including such deep-pocketed entities as Sears, Allstate, Geico, John Deere, Capitol One, and JCPenney.

Netflix earlier today released a statement saying it had not purchased airtime on Limbaugh’s show as reported, but two Netflix spots “were picked up in error.” The company said it had taken steps to ensure the error “will not happen again.”

Still, just as dozens of advertisers are “jamming the phone lines” with requests to retrieve their ad dollars, others are shoring up their support for the embattled bloviator.

AshleyMadison.com, the infamous dating site for philanderers, has made an offer to purchase all Limbaugh inventory rejected by fleeing sponsors. SeekingArrangements.com, “the world’s largest sugar daddy and sugar baby dating website,” has also expressed interest in buying ads from Limbaugh.

Clear Channel’s syndication arm, Premiere Radio Networks, issued a statement of support for its favorite son, with whom they signed a $400 million deal back in 2008.

“We respect the right of Mr. Limbaugh, as well as the rights of those who disagree with him, to express those opinions,” the company said in its press release.

Two radio stations — Hawaii’s KPUA and Massachusetts’ WBEC — announced yesterday they would be dropping Limbaugh’s show from their airwaves.

President Obama, meanwhile, took time today to address the Limbaugh hullabaloo, saying his remarks “don’t have any place in the public discourse.” He explained that he phoned Sandra Fluke because he was reminded of his daughters, “and one of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them on.”

“I do not want them attacked or called horrible names because they are being good citizens, and I wanted Sandra to know that I thought her parents should be proud of her,” he continued. “And that we want to send a message to all of our young people that being part of a democracy involves argument and disagreements and debate, and we want you to be engaged, and there’s a way to do it that doesn’t involve you being demeaned and insulted, particularly when you are a private citizen.”

This is nonsense! Way to send off #2011. Is not being such a #Douche your #Resolution for #2012  #NewYear #OWS

This Is Important, You Should Know About It of the Day: President Obama today quietly signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, which contains controversial provisions requiring military custody for any non-citizen suspected of terrorism and affirming the president’s authority to indefinitely detain any supporter of al-Qaeda “or associated forces, irrespective of citizenship.
In a signing statement, the President said he had “serious reservations” about the bill, and criticised lawmakers for interfering with the work of counterterrorism professionals.
“Moving forward, my administration will interpret and implement the provisions described below in a manner that best preserves the flexibility on which our safety depends and upholds the values on which this country was founded,” the statement said.
The Obama administration was successful in striking down a provision that would have removed the ability of the executive branch to override the military custody requirement. Additionally, US citizens and legal immigrants may not be subjected to military custody under the revised bill.
However, an amendment to explicitly exclude American citizens and lawful residents from indefinite detention was rejected by Congress.
“My administration will not authorize the indefinite military detention without trial of American citizens,” Obama said. “Indeed, I believe that doing so would break with our most important traditions and values as a nation.”
The President’s personal stance aside, in addition to creating myriad difficulties for counterterrorism agents working with suspected terrorists to gain information, the NDAA provisions leave the door wide open for future presidents to indefinitely detain American citizens without trial.
