    I think that you greatly underestimate liberals.

     

    She's on Foxnews! 

     

    Liberals would be outraged! Just mention the word "Foxnews" to any liberal and their face instantly frowns, and they begin to make strange contortions, before they have an uncontrollable hissy fit and self implode.

    I assume you mean profits here - and if so, I couldn't agree more.  And that is PRECISELY why Carney would be a mistake as a public face of the company because he alienates a huge numbers of consumers.  The last thing a company like Apple should want is to be spending even two minutes explaining why they picked such a politicized person as their PR representative.  Even if the Obama administration were popular, which it clearly no longer is, it would be a bad idea.

    I know she's on Fox. I do read my own links. When I use wiki, I typically confirm at least some of its references. You might take note of the details on her Fox News bio page.

Carney lied or was duplicitous on numerous occasions on such matters as the unconscionable medical treatment of veterans at the VA, the healthcare act (myriad lies about keeping your plan and your doctor),  the IRS, Benghazi, etc., etc.   These matters may be trivial to you but not a huge percentage of our country.  For a public corporation to have such a person as their public face is absurd.  If Apple goes through with it, I predict a giant stockholder rebellion and who knows what else?


    I guess I'll have to wait and see on that one. That is a very bold prediction, and I'm not sure what to really say about it.

    Conjecture. Obama may not be popular among your political affiliation but then he never was. Among his own constituents he is as popular as ever. These are very trying times and often there are no right answers, Republicans don't have any answers, They only have an agenda - stop Obama from executing anything regardless of how beneficial or logical it might be. Grid lock is not helping anyone.

     

    Republicans would surly have started world war three by now if they had been in office. With Obama, we couldn't be in better hands in my opinion. Lately the world has become a very dangerous place and it is not due to anything the president has done. The problems are mostly from external sources such as Islamic militants, which remind me very much of Republicans in their conservative ideology.

    I'm sorry, but that is hilarious, and needless to say, I totally disagree. It is exactly because of Obama that the world is a crappier place and wars are everywhere at the moment. To put it bluntly, Obama is a weak leader and nobody fears him, including our enemies. Terrorists and crappy countries are all taking advantage of Obama's weakness at the moment.

     

    Obama's statements and ultimatums don't mean anything at all. Remember his "red line" on Syria? Hahahaha. 

     

    Obama is too busy taking vacations, playing golf and fundraising to be truly concerned about anything that's taking place in the world or even the USA. Is the recent border invasion a coincidence? Hell no, it's Obama's doing, and it's his fault. His policies encouraged it.

    Apple recently took part in a Teabagger parade.

     

    Those are real Teabaggers, in contrast to what liberals are thinking of when they use that slur.

    Sure is, but that happened two pages after you complained about name calling.

    So you are female. Guess what? My responses still stand.

    If this PR hire happens, I and others look forward to you posting your goodbye response as Rogifan and look forward to you continuing to spew nonsense under a different alias.

    IF you do not intend leaving Apple if the PR hire does happen, admit it now instead of being labelled a liar later.

    Clearly you like reading yourself in print, but given the comments in the thread it appears that a fairly significant group support her point of view and might just as much appreciate your departure from the forum as hers....just sayin'

    I don't plan to stop buying iPhones if the hire does go through, but if they make multiple decisions in the near term that were similarly as horrendous I would consider lowering my stock holdings. Fortunately I have great confidence that Tim Cook, et al. are far too intelligent to hire Carney the carny.

    Intentionally ironic?

    Yeah, everything is Obama's fault.

    So I take it that your opinion is that we should be dropping bombs on every conflict zone around the world so we will be viewed as stong or would you just rather we send in the troops? I would prefer complete disengagement by all US forces around he world and that is consistent with Obama's strategy although I would like to extend the policy to Korea, Japan and Europe as well. What we really need is a new satellite system that can shoot down any missile by laser. That is the only hope for the planet because the terrorists and evil foreign governments are determined to destroy everything.

     

    To paraphrase Einstein:

     

    "I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones"

    Apple ][ has repeatedly shown he's intolerant of people that are less affluent, have a culture and are of a different nationality. You're probably going to get a disgusting answer you don't want to read.

    On that note, your departure would also be appreciated. It boggles the mind that people are allowed to say they will leave Apple if Apple does whatever and are allowed to not do exactly what they say. When someone holds them accountable people like you defend them.

    I own Apple stock as well and am not planning to stop being an Apple customer due to me not understanding exactly what Apple is doing. But people like Rogifan are stating they will leave Apple. I am asking them to adhere to what they are stating. Why is that considered wrong?

    Has it become okay that people write lies instead of truths these days?

    I am rooting for Tim Cook. Check out my posts to see where I stand on this point. I have not been duplicitous with my posts. Rogifan and others have been with their posts. Why are you defending her statement to leave Apple when you know it is a lie?

    I can't think of a dumber move on Apples part than hiring this yutz.
