Boycott Outback Steakhouse False Advertising

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

 

For a few days I have really wanted a steak.  When its 113-114° degrees outside, the last thing one wants to do is cook and heat up one’s house.  Forget about firing up the Barbie—cooking outside this time of year in Phoenix poses a severe health risk!

 

Yesterday when the Outback Steakhouse card came in offering summertime special entrées for $9.95 plus the purchase of a Coca Cola beverage product or $5.00 off on the purchase of a second entre, I went for it with gusto.

 

I figured I’d give $3-$4 more for the Coca Cola plus tax and a generous tip I’d eat a great steak dinner for $16-$18.

 

However, when I got to my local Outback Steakhouse in Chandler, I asked my waitress how the mailer worked.  And was I floored when she repeated that one had to buy TWO entrées!  Their mailer said nothing about that requirement.

 

I informed her there was no way I was going to do that and eat two entrées.  On the way out I gave my Outback Steakhouse card with my name and address imprinted on it to the Chandler Outback hostess and informed her:

 

You’ve got to be more truthful in your advertising and I will blog this.

 

Indeed it is illegal to advertise fraudulently using the U.S. Postal Service but that is exactly what Outback has done.

 

Therefore, I say, in the spirit of the Revolution of Virtue

 

BOYCOTT OUTBACK STEAKHOUSES

 

Upon Reflection I am in Error, Serious Error . . .

 . . . when I wrote that saving America does not require a return to God, a return to The LORD.

Certainly, I want to make room for those who do not believe as I do and

Might not necessarily believe in God.

The fact is America was founded upon the blessing accumulated over 180 years,

Built upon a foundation of a society norm and value of

Virtue.

More than 180 years of living virtuous lives culminated in the

Declaration of Independence and the

United States Constitution.

Without that foundation, America as we knew it (pt) would never have been found.*

For those of you younger than me, this is beyond your years,

Beyond most Americans’ memories and

Beyond your imagination.

I hope you’ll join with me in a Revolution of Virtue

But I am now thinking it will take a returning to The LORD in order to make the huge

Change in heart

Necessary to Save America,

The Real Change All Can Believe in,

In order to make it happen.

That would be Jesus Christ

NOT Obama

Has we made America an Abomination?

(Alliteration: Obama-nation)

*This is not America.  This is slavery.

Calling for a Revolution of Virtue

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

 

The United State’s Declaration of Independence and the United State’s Constitution did not appear “magically” from God.  Those documents and that blessing only occurred after a long hardship.  They were preceded by a “revolution of virtue” that lasted 185 years.  The spirit of virtue, valuing one’s self and one’s freedom culminated in the best & most rational form of government ever devised by man.

 

Many are shouting “only by returning to God, to the LORD will America be restored.”  Hogwash!  At best we’d reinvent The Grand Inquisition.  There’d be so many religious nuts and so much religiosity; men would commit the most horrible atrocities in the name of God.

 

It all comes down to behavior.  While we can not control our own minds, and we certainly cannot control what occurs in the minds of other men, we can observe & agree upon behavior.  Besides, there needs to be room for dissent and freedom of the mind, and that requires healthy reflection, internally and externally.

 

Therefore, be it declared a New American Revolution.  A Revolution of the Mind.  A Revolution in Virtue.

 

Men alter their thinking to support their behavior.

 

Criminals rationalize their bad behaviors.

Now, how is this accomplished?

By valuing your self.

 

By valuing your word.

 

By honoring your word.

 

Real men will only give their word when they mean it.  Moreover, real men only give their word when they know they are able to live up to it.

 

Therefore, we need to say “no” much more.  We need to hear “no” much more often.  And we need to accept hearing a man choosing and uttering “no” far more often.

 

Also, we need to recognize the lying thieves we’ve become as a society.  “The government has turned us into a bunch of liars and thieves,” my neighbor from Texas via the North Slope declared.

 

We need to recognize the lying and thieving and, more importantly, we need to call it boldly what it is.  We need to label it properly regardless of hurting feelings.

 

Why?

 

In order to get in touch with reality we need to stop denying reality.  We need to stop “inventing reality” and stop making things up.

 

It’s time to stop acting like children and grow up.  Children have the luxury of imagination.  We don’t.

 

If you know of any business (And almost all corporations are involved in deceitful practice, deceit in their marketing and deceit in their contracts.) that practices deceit, walk away.  Do not do business with them.  Force them to become honest in their claims and accurate in their advertising.  Make them live up to their words.

 

Walk away from any business or corporation that deceives in the slightest degree.  Make them value their word.  Make them value their public presentation.  Or let them die.

 

If we individually start to value ourselves and our word, and we change our behavior by refusing to buy anything that is misrepresented in the slightest.  And we refuse to patronize (Get a dictionary!) any business that lies, then we can begin to shut them down.  We can begin making everyone honest.  We can begin reclaiming our country and our heritage.

 

The only way to end the thieving, the madness and insanity is by telling the truth, being truthful to ourselves and by being truthful to each other.

 

Don’t you understand?

 

We are at War.  We’ve been at War.

 

This is a battle for the mind.

 

It is a battle of the mind.

 

It is

 

Psychosociopolitical Warfare

 

Let’s wage it to win.

 

WAKE UP AMERICA!

 

We’re taking the country back!
