Cracker Barrel: We screwed up big time
Fox News, by Todd Starnes

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/22/2013 6:51:50 PM

“We were flat out wrong." That’s the message Cracker Barrel is sending to enraged customers after the restaurant chain removed Duck Dynasty items from its stores over fears it might offend people. “Our intent was to avoid offending but that’s just what we’ve done,” Cracker Barrel said in a statement posted on its Facebook page. “You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren’t shy about it. You wrote, you called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings.” One of those customers was Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council. He said his family has eaten

Tony Perkins? I guess he went a little Psycho over this Duck Dynasty thing but he´s OK now.

Everyone has a right to be smarter today than they were yesterday.

Some just refuse to pursue that condition, however. Glad Cracker Barrel did.

It is amazing that Cracker Barrel did not know its own customer base. Hint. It did not include Pajama Boy.

Sorry Cracker Barrel this was a knee JERK stupid decision put out by you!

I and my family have always stopped at Cracker Barrel but have huge reservations now because of your obnoxious PC views.

You have made a typical PC too late mea culpa but ONLY because your customers made you painfully (i.e.financially) aware of the disastrous results of this idiotic move.

Shame, Shame on you! You have lost me forever!!!!

I don´t eat at CB often as it is, but after this little episode I believe I´ll just drive on by from now on.

Yes, they made a decision and screwed up. And yes, they reversed course and offered an apology. But both of those moves on CB´s part were born of pure self-serving expediency as opposed to deeply held beliefs or values (which don´t change when the wind shifts).

I´m done with them just as I´m done with A&E regardless of how that situation plays out.

CB can kiss a good portion of the state of Indiana and the Central and Western side of the state of Michigan farewell for a long time. Hoosiers and Michiganders are forgiving and fair people, but they don´t appreciate being mocked or sneered at by big-city or big corporation elitists. CB may escape with a brief drop in patronage, but they better remember who their customer base is. Their next screw up may be the "straw that breaks the camel´s back" and a lot of CB restaurants will have to close due to lack of customers.

I have been eating at Cracker Barrels since 1970 . It has been the first choice of places to eat at, when available for my family.
They sure ´messed where they eat´ with this episode, and a lame attempt to be Politically Correct. A slap in the face to their formerly, loyal customers.

I refuse to invest in an establishment that sets the business vision to which ever way the wind blows.

Demonstrates Cracker Barrel does not know their market demographics nor its primary customers. They could tomorrow change their mind again.

I got rid of their companies stocks last Friday, they have serious problems at the Board and CEO levels, idiots.

We will be eating breakfast at the Cracker Barrel in Kerrville on January 23, on our way to the ranch. If they had not done this major apology, we would have eaten somewhere else.

They made a dumb decision, then corrected it in a great big hurry! I´ll assume whoever made that decision will be waiting tables tomorrow.

What happened at CB isn´t a mystery if you google Laura Daily, their head of retail.

You´ll see an article at the hrc.org website (Human Rights Campaign) entitled "Lebanon, TN: Home to Cracker Barrel, Cedar Trees, and Growing LGBT Employee Resource Groups"

It has the following quote: "Next, Laura Daily, Senior Vice President of Retail shared part of Cracker Barrel’s diversity and inclusion journey, and how their newly revamped employee resource groups – with the LGBT Alliance being one of three established ERGs -- as being crucial to the company’s success, where the two words that best describe their philosophy for creating an inclusive and productive environment for guests, employees, vendors and shareholders are, “pleasing people.”"

Cracker Barrel knew exactly what it was doing with its Duck Decision.

Like a buddy in a foxhole when you need him and he doesn´t come through but he´s sorry later. CB can´t now reverse itself and think all is forgiven.

IT takes backbone to admit you´re wrong but it takes a lot more backbone to stand up when something is wrong in the first place and not after the accounts send you a letter written in all CAPS.

Any moron who has eaten at Cracker Barrel would readily figure out that there are at least a thousand times more down home folks eating there then gay activists most of who would rather be found dead then in a Cracker Barrel. Clearly for PC purposes the suits running Cracker Barrel decided to offend the folks who were their bread and butter, their clientele, not a good business move for the bottom line.

Ironically, the people who the Cracker Barrel suits ended up hurting are the Cracker Barrel wait staff, a percentage of who are gay folks trying to make a living, who will now most likely see their tips diminished as a portion of their clientele go to other places to eat their down home food.

It is a bit bigger and somewhat colder, but a planet circling a star 500 light-years away is otherwise the closest match of our home world discovered so far, astronomers announced on Thursday. The planet, known as Kepler 186f, named after NASA’s Kepler planet-finding mission, which detected it, has a diameter of 8,700 miles, 10 percent wider than Earth, and its orbit lies within the “Goldilocks zone” of its star, Kepler 186 — not too hot, not too cold, where temperatures could allow for liquid water to flow at the surface, making it potentially hospitable for life. “Kepler 186f is

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards returned to the courtroom in North Carolina this week. Edwards, before entering politics as a senator from North Carolina, shot to prominence as a personal injury lawyer in the state and restarted his practice late last year. In his first case back in the courtroom, Edwards is part of a legal team representing a 4-year-old in a medical malpractice case. The Virginia boy was three months old during a hospital visit in 2009 and “the hospital is accused of failing to ensure the baby received adequate oxygen, resulting in a brain injury,” according to

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The VA hospital that slapped a $525 federal fine on a man after he refilled his 89-cent drink without paying has backed down, choosing to issue a warning instead of a citation, a spokesperson for the facility said Thursday. Christopher T. Lewis, of North Charleston, was issued the $525 citation on Wednesday after he ignored signage indicating that there’s no such thing as a free lunch — or complimentary drink refills — at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston. Lewis, who is not a federal employee, told responding officers he had done the same thing “multiple times” before

White House Updating Online Privacy Policy

A new Obama administration privacy policy released Friday explains how the government will gather the user data of online visitors to WhiteHouse.gov, mobile apps and social media sites, and it clarifies that online comments, whether tirades or tributes, are in the open domain. "Information you choose to share with the White House (directly and via third party sites) may be treated as public information," the new policy says. The Obama Administration also promises not to sell the data of online visitors. But it cannot make the same assurances for users who go to third-party White House sites on Facebook, Twitter or Google

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

What Happened to the Tea Party?

It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

But as his mother also said, he shouldn’t be running. And the reasons are becoming more clear by the day. Problem one is that much like Mitt Romney, he is one political generation too old. Both last held office in 2006, and seem to have stayed there. Problem two is the anguished ambivalence, reminiscent of Mario Cuomo and Adlai E. Stevenson, which does not bode

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots. Two layers of zippers keep the outside from getting in, and more importantly here -- the opposite. Nobody goes inside the tent without spending 15 minutes putting on isolation gear.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
