I have owned a Select Comfort mattress since 2003 and am very pleased. Not “Junk” in my book.

I happen to have all the forums open so I don't care why this is or isn't open somewhere ~ it's on my screen so that makes it good.

Somebody else doesn't like that they can go elsewhere.

Anyway, the first guys to bail sell mattresses.

Bed bugs are a national problem and spreading.

Any mattress vendor could be WIPED OFF THE MAP financially if a single mattress were found with a bed bug.

The "Occupy ....... " crowd are certainly in league with all the other Democrat action teams ~ unions, NOW, the abortionists ~ certainly they could come up with a bed bug ridden mattress sold by one of those guys in a heartbeat.

I'm not sure the Democrats even need to call those people anymore ~ just create an issue ~ they know how dirty the Dems have become, both in politics and in personal hygiene. The threat is implicit in their very existence.

Then the pill guy, that industry has the same problem.

I loved Snapple. He doesn't advertise it anymore though because he has his own tea.

If you loved Snapple (as I do), you will really like Limbaugh's 'Two if by Tea'. It's fantastic and about the same cost as Snapple, just not supermarket available.

The owner of CARBONITE donates heavily to SOROS groups like MoveOn and also donated to the “Truth” group that tried to smear Bush with those forged National Guard letters that Freepers debunked.

More details on this at Breitbart... Do a web search since I don’t have the link handy.

Thus, Carbonite was swindling Rush listeners to fund Communist front groups!

Years ago, he advertised a product called Snappy. Snappy was a device that you plugged into your computer and then hooked it to a VCR and it supposedly would show your VCR tapes on your computer and allow you to snap pictures from your movies. It cost $100.00. What a waste of money that was. I could never get the device to work properly, and what pictures it did take came out terrible. I couldn’t believe Rush actually used this product while he was hyping how good it was.

Snapple was a little better. I still drink Snapple. I haven’t had Two if by Tea, but I’ll bet it’s not as good as it’s being hyped. Maybe one day when it’s sold at supermarkets, I’ll try it.

“Anyway, the first guys to bail sell mattresses.”

And, as mattresses are mandatory work tools for sluts and prositutes, it makes sense the bed guys would pander to their base.

You haven’t tried the Two if by TEA? But, you still bet it isn’t as good as hyped.....you might want to try some...sheesh. It is good. And, I liked Snapple, too...but, being the fools they are (after being purchased by Carnation Co - they bailed on Rush.)

What the leftists have never understood is that even if they could take Rush off the air, it wouldn’t matter because it’s not Rush they are confronted with in the first place.

Rush got so big in the first place because conservative ideas were being stifled by a universally liberal media.

No doubt they understand the pressure ~ in this case though, I think all the mattress people are absolutely out of their minds paranoid about getting hit with an attack of bed bugs.

Also, a substantial part of the mattress manufacturing business has moved to Mexico ~ that only adds to their paranoia when it comes to pushing product ~ just one "Occupy...." character goes down there, the whole industry could be ruined.

I had a Select Comfort Sleep number mattress. It was OK as far a comfort went, but it was too light in terms of weight and it floated about on the bed and that was a pretty big negative for me. Sold it and bought one of those Tempur-pedic and have been thrilled by it ever since. Much more comfortable and it doesn’t float, and it takes regular King sheets. The Select Comfort had an odd size that was just under the standard King size bed and the sheets didn’t fit right either. Seemed like it was designed to fit into a waterbed frame.

Tempurpedic for me. I waited a loong time to get the right bed. Worth every penny.

As for Sleeptrain, wouldn’t it be a hoot if a Sleeptrain delivery truck showed up with a load of them showed up at the next ‘Occupy’ event, or Fluke’s dorm? Okay, maybe not, because I don’t have the money to waste...but if it worked with Murphy Brown and the truckload of potatoes at the WH, it would make a humorous statement.

I'm not a big Iced Tea guy, but the regular Raspberry Two If By Tea is absolutely yummy. Snapple is good, not yummy...

YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY! Support Rush and give it a try. Besides, Rush's wife Katherine is the CEO of TIBT. Rush is a partner and consultant. Katherine is the brains of the operation.

I don’t think you can lump all the Rush advertisers in one pile, but Carbonite (Nasdaq CARB) is still burning money without having shown a profit from operations, telling their investors they will do so in 2014 if their subscriber base continues to grow. Now think about that in light of this decision - their CEO Mr. Friend may be playing “bet your company” in pursuit of this political ideology.

Thus far their stock is down 3.3% on the day, but it will take time to tell if that is a trend.

You must be doing well. Unless Spatula City starts offering long term low interest financing, I can't afford the new Spatula my Wife was really hoping for.

This Obama Economy is killing her dream to become a professional competitive Pancake flipper.

No, Snapple is now owned by a bigger company, and they dumped him. Now you can’t find the stuff.

Yep, Sleep Number is hyped to hell and back, even priced high its still just an air mattress and the pump/valve things leak after warranty goes bye bye. Better off buying a really nice conventional mattress for same money.

I would like to thank Mayflower Madam for the pithy post. You made me chuckle. :)

I like a lot of his products and regularly buy them especially ProFlowers. I’ve notified ProFlowers that I’ll no longer be using them. I’ve also unsubcribed to all their advertising for all the companies they own. I will not use them or recommend them until they start advertising on Rush again. That’s really a shame since I have been a regular customer for years and felt I got excellent value for the $$$ spent.

They advertise on a lot of talk radio and if the FlushRush/MediaMaters/DNC get their way once they hurt the Rush they’ll go after the other talk radio shows to get them off the air as well. This is part of the election year strategy to clear the board.

I feel sorry for companies like ProFlowers who got put in this position and I understand why they dropped him. They would have gone after the company using the MSM and the leadership of the company on a personal basis if this first effort hadn’t worked. They’d pull a Korman on them and at this point we don’t know if Korman work for the Cure will survive. I suppose they will if they increase their funding to Planned Parenthood and send in tribute to other approved organizations as well as jump when they are told to jump. Anything less than total subservience and they’ll be pounded unmercifully by Planned Parenthood and their MSM allies.

When one argues that health insurance cover the cost of sexual pleasure—contraceptives—we have entered an alternate universe. Since the cost of beds necessary for bedroom pleasures, could be seen as a cost of sexual pleasure qualifying for health insurance coverage, I can see Select Comfort on the side of Sandra Fluke. Select Comfort would have much to gain if their product were covered.

This issue opens up a whole can of worms—or a Pandora’s Box. The possibilities are endless what health insurance companies would be required to cover when it comes to the cost of fulfilling ones personal pleasures.

They’re still with him, from what I can tell (but then again, they’re wholly owned by him).
