  •  Yet ANOTHER SNUB to the NRA : (11+ / 0-)
    The National Rifle Association has hosted a wine club since 2007 (seriously), but word of it recently hit the news cycle to dramatic effect. Now, an Australian winery is pulling its wines from the club in protest against the NRA's views.

    Barossa Valley winery Yalumba told the Herald Sun that it was unaware how four of its wines were placed as selections on the NRA's wine club, but that it will either withdraw its wine stock or, at the very least, stop supplying it in the future.

    Owner Robert Hill Smith explained the move:

    "Philosophically, I'm not disposed towards the NRA, which runs counter to my family's, and I would think all my employees', positions on gun laws."

    They are not "philosophically disposed" to the NRA.  I love the way they said that!  

    Here's another small step towards marginalizing the NRA.  I'll drink to that.

    It's the Supreme Court, stupid!

    •  I may have to consider Yalumba the next time (5+ / 0-)

      I purchase wine.   Love that the NRA is getting more and more snubbed.

      I agree with President Obama, our country's journey is not yet complete. We must continue the work that our forebearers at Seneca Falls started, and put the Equal Rights Amendment into our Constitution.
