    It's about time!

    A coalition of over two dozen leading gay and straight activists are calling on Capital One to fire spokesman Alec Baldwin in the wake of homophobic tweets the actor made last week on Twitter.

    “We urge all Americans to ask themselves, ‘What’s in your wallet?’ We hope they will reject Alec Baldwin’s homophobia by cutting up those Capital One cards in their wallets,” said gay conservative strategist and GOProud co-founder Jimmy LaSalvia of RightWingNews.com.

    Joining LaSalvia in spearheading the effort with his colleague at RightWingNews.com, John Hawkins. LaSalvia and Hawkins issued an open letter signed by several prominent conservatives to Capital One CEO Richard Fairbank. The group has also launched an online petition.

    Now you're in trouble. Cheffie and a few others claim Alec is getting a pass, and you're saying they're wrong. icon_lol.gif

    If you keep shooting yourself in the foot this way I suggest a nice bag of frozen peas for the swelling. icon_biggrin.gif

    You should pay more attention. SB returned briefly as southbeach1501, and then disappeared again, for an unknown reason. Now he's back as southbeach1502. Does that mean he has 97 lives left before he runs out of the 1500 series?

    And who's the "WE" of which you speak? Is that your royal "we"?

    As for Capital One, their banking practices and advertising campaigns continue to draw regulatory scrutiny. It appears they're a company to avoid, with or without Alec Baldwin as their pitchman. In fact, if Baldwin is a damaged "brand" then let them keep him, by all means.

    Yes, I was fully aware he came back for a few days as SB1501. Anyway, it's great to have him back ... doncha think?

    And who's the "WE" of which you speak? Is that your royal "we"?

    Same question I frequently ask you (and some others) when you believe you speak for everyone. However, this one was primarily for you to see if you'd notice.icon_wink.gif

    And yeah, Crapital One has been in a bunch of trouble over the years.

    So glad you noticed. Yes, it is a mystery why the admin deleted my "1501" account after approving it just a few days prior to deleting it! I violated no forum rules whatsoever and the admin did not reply to my inquiry as to the reason for the account removal.

    Well, yah can't have it both ways. One moment you Righties are all victims of the brutal Liberal majority here, the next, as here, you tell me I "believe" I "speak for everyone".

    So which is it? Are you the persecuted minority here, and do Liberals speak for the majority, or not?

    Perma-ban perhaps? And new accounts get approved automatically, they aren't reviewed to my knowledge. Therefore until Admin realized you were back, and who southbeach1501 was, your new account could exist.

    And BTW, I didn't alert Admin to that fact. Perhaps they stumbled across it themselves. Be interesting to see how long southbeach1502 exists, now that you've identified yourself as the original SB.

    You are not permitted to post until your photo has been reviewed by a human being on staff (I presume the admin himself).

    What is interesting is that the picture for "1501" was clearly me, the name was clearly a "SB" name, the home city was Miami Beach, so everything was all above board, and yet the profile was approved.

    Same for "1502" - which is even more puzzling because just a week or two ago they removed me! Strange...

    Ha. Let's hope not.

    I love how his "leading gay and straight activists" in the OP are actually right-wing Republican shills that nobody gives a crap about, least of all Capital One.

    GOP: bringing the fails since 2008, haha.
