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

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.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A North Carolina prosecutor was the original target of an elaborate kidnapping plot, but the kidnappers looked up the wrong address on the Internet and abducted the prosecutor´s father by mistake, an indictment released Tuesday said. Nine people were charged in the kidnapping of 63-year-old Frank Janssen, the father of Wake Forest Assistant District Attorney Colleen Janssen. Frank Janssen was abducted April 5 from his Wake Forest home and held captive for five days in Atlanta before being rescued by the FBI. Authorities have said the kidnapping was retaliation for Colleen Janssen´s prosecution of Kelvin Melton, a

KATMANDU, Nepal -- Dozens of Sherpa guides packed up their tents and left Mount Everest´s base camp Wednesday, after the avalanche deaths of 16 of their colleagues exposed an undercurrent of resentment by Sherpas over their pay, treatment and benefits. With the entire climbing season increasingly thrown into doubt, the government quickly announced that top tourism officials would fly to base camp Thursday to negotiate with the Sherpas and encourage them to return to work. But while Nepal´s government has been heavily criticized for not doing enough for the Sherpas in the wake of last week´s disaster, the deadliest ever on the

For the sake of argument, The Scrapbook is willing to concede that it is possible that Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher, ought to be allowed to graze his cattle on federal land in Nye County. And that protecting the desert tortoise as an endangered species on that same federal land is no good reason to impose a fee for grazing livestock. Reasonable people can disagree about these issues, and will do so. But in the United States of America, since 1789, we have had ways of settling these disputes. We have a judicial system that gives citizens due process and

Members of the Sierra Club’s board of directors are driving around in gas-guzzling vehicles, despite the group’s support for the Obama administration’s increased fuel efficiency standards. The Sierra Club strongly supported the Obama administration’s increase in minimum fuel economy standards to 54.4 miles per gallon (mpg) by 2025, but it seems the Club’s top officials don’t practice what they preach. The Sierra Club’s 15-member board of directors own a combined 32 vehicles, less than one-fifth of which are hybrids or electric vehicles. Seven of the 32 vehicles are sports utility vehicles while only six are hybrids and electric cars, according

New poll confirms: Obamacare

National Journal published two stories late last week that immediately rocketed ’round the lefty blogosphere. The first argued that Obamacare was on a fabulous “winning streak;” the second followed up on the same theme, asserting that conservative critics of the law have sustained a credibility hit as a result of all this supposedly great news. (Our own Ed Morrissey was even cited as an example hyperbolic overreach — and everyone knows Ed’s reputation is a reckless hothead who’s prone to wild exaggeration).

ALBUQUERQUE – One of New Mexico’s candidates for Governor is downplaying his ties to a co-founder of the radical anti-government Weather Underground. Democrat Alan Webber has raised the most money out of the five candidates vying for the party’s nomination and the right to take on Governor Susana Martinez in the November election. It turns out Webber got some fundraising help from a controversial source. From the late 1960´s to the mid 1970´s, the anti-war group the Weather Underground planted and detonated bombs at targets across the country. The group’s manifesto called for the violent overthrow of the United States government. One of its

The Sunday morning shows once occupied a sacred space in American politics. Today, many influential Washington players can’t even remember the last time they watched. The public affairs shows — “Meet the Press,” “Face the Nation” and “This Week” — used to set the agenda for the nation’s capital with their news-making interviews and immensely influential audience. Now the buzz around the shows is more likely to center on gossipy criticism about the hosts, notably “Meet the Press’s” David Gregory, whose fate has become an incessant subject of conversation, most recently in a Washington Post story on Monday. Meanwhile, fans complain about

A New York jury heard accused terrorist Abu Hamza al-Masri gloat Monday over the 9/11 attacks and the 1998 bombing of a U.S. Navy ship. "Everybody was happy when the planes hit the World Trade Center," the hook-handed preacher told a television reporter in a videotaped interview that prosecutors played in Manhattan Federal Court. When asked whether he approved of the suicide attack on the U.S.S. Cole, Abu Hamza responded, "Of course. I agree with it." Prosecutors screened the clips while questioning witness George Corey, a federal investigator and former NYPD detective. Abu Hamza, 56, is charged with supporting Al Qaeda and the

A day rarely goes by without some sort of news or official statement about the difficulty and challenges of the Keystone Pipeline. Last week, the Obama administration yet-again delayed the decision to move forward with it. Yesterday, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was on television defending this decision. And of course, it’s been a discussion item for over five years. So, why is there such controversy? It’s over 1,000 miles long and will cover several states. Take a look at this graphic from our friends at the Washington Free Beacon that shows the pipeline’s proposed location and size:

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.
