Chobani Yogurt Banned From Sochi Olympics Is Being Given To The Homeless, But Even They Don't Want It!

chobani yogurt not getting any love at new york shelters

It looks like Ann Curry and stray dogs aren't the only ones not welcome at the Sochi Olympics!!

Last week, we mentioned that a HUGE shipment of Chobani Yogurt heading to Russia was stalled in New York after they failed to get the proper food and health certifications!

Well the next logical step was to donate the 5,000 plus containers of the snacks to local food shelters and soup kitchens. The only problem is not everyone has a taste for the greek yogurt!

Facebook Co-Founder Renounces Citizenship To Avoid Taxes

Eduardo Saverin renounces us citizenship

At least that's what the popular opinion is!

Remember the guy Andrew Garfield played in The Social Network? He's causing all sorts of outrage right now!

Eduardo Saverin, a co-founder of Facebook, renounced his U.S. citizenship last fall and the government thinks it's to avoid paying taxes on the billion dollar fortune he accumulated as an American.

Since he owns about 4% of Mark Zuckerberg's company, his stock is estimated to be worth

The Obama Administration Fails The Gays Yet Again!

white-house-rejects-new-york-senator-chuck-schumers-reccomendation-that-openly-gay-daniel-alter-serve-on-the-us-district-court

We're starting to feel like a broken record here with our consistent disappointment!

Despite being recommended for the position by New York Senator Chuck Schumer, openly gay Daniel Alter's nomination for federal bench in the US District Court has been rejected by the White House!

According to the Washington Blade:

“But informed sources told the Washington Blade that the White House rejected Alter’s nomination because of remarks he reportedly made regarding a case challenging inclusion of the phrase ‘under God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance. In addition, the White House reportedly objected to remarks that Alter made suggesting that merchants not wish shoppers ‘Merry Christmas’ during the holidays.”

So they threw Schumer's recommendation, which is standard procedure and tradition, out just because Alter supports a separation of Church and State?!

Unbelievable.

This nonsense needs to STOP! And soon!

Thoughts??
