… ScarJo drops the Hammer (yes , again) …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 20th,2014

.. actress Scarlett Johannson (or , ScarJo , if you would mind) has not shrank from controversy …

.. she has now teed off in general at those who teed off at SodaStream . She was a global ambassador for Oxfam , until she decided to stand down because of the ruckus over her SuperBowl commercial . Now she has come out further over the controversy …

Scarlett—she hates it when you call her “ScarJo”—dumped Oxfam faster than she kicked Ryan Reynolds to the curb. She called Oxfam’s crusade as it was:

“There’s a lot of anti-Semitism out there,” Johansson told Vanity Fair, in an interview for the cover of their May edition.

Adam Kredo reported back in January that Oxfam, in fact, has donated millions to those bastards responsible for New Coke, so it was to now surprise that the group had a history of bad judgement. Good to see Scarlett show them who’s boss.

… A Salute to Scarlett Johannsen …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 8th,2014

.. and it came from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu .

.. Bibi was in D.C. for meetings with , among others , POTUS . He was also there to attend the annual meeting of A.I.P.A.C. [the America Israel Public Affairs Committee] . in his speech , he called out actress Scarlett Johannsen for her unswavering support of Sodastream …

.. for those who do not know , Sodastream is that neat company that produces those gadgets that make homemade soda pop . Sodastream is an Israel – based company . it also has operations in Judea and Sumeria (the West Bank) …

.. from the remarks ..

Today the singling out of the Jewish people has turned into the singling out of the Jewish state. So you see, attempts to boycott, divest and sanction Israel, the most threatened democracy on Earth, are simply the latest chapter in the long and dark history of anti- Semitism. (Applause.) Those who wear — those who wear the BDS label should be treated exactly as we treat any anti-Semite or bigot. They should be exposed and condemned. The boycotters should be boycotted.

Everyone should know what the letters B-D-S really stand for: bigotry, dishonesty and shame. And those who — those who oppose BDS, like Scarlett Johansson, they should be applauded.
Scarlett, I have one thing to say to you: Frankly, my dear, I DO give a damn! And I know all of you give a damn, as do decent people everywhere who reject hypocrisy and lies and cherish integrity and truth.

… Great and Simple Ad , Scarlett !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 1st,2014

.. I caught this ad , even though I am not exactly a Scarlett Johannson fan . Well , I am still not , but I am open to the possibility , now . She is unquestionably beautiful , no doubt about it . Also , a great ad . Simple , Dignified . Classy . Emerging Company . Known Company .

.. [h/t — BleacherReport]

.. [link] to the commercial .

.. I caught up with this because Sodastream is a good product , but more so is because it is an Israeli company , with operations in part in the West Bank [Judea & Sumeria] . Johannson has , until recently , had charitable food group Oxfam as one of her good works . She broke ties with Oxfam because of calls of her to split with Sodastream , and over their ops in the West Bank .

.. from what I know , Johannson is not Jewish , but has family that is . So , she is no dimb bulb . She evidently did her homework before she took up the ad campaign for Sodastream . She pretty well understood what she was getting into . Not the boycott calls , though .

.. this one is the ” uncensored ” version . The ad will run on FOX on the Super Bowl broadcast , but the last part of the ad , about Coke and Pepsi , will be edited out ..

= = = =     = = = =

.. yea , I am a football fan . If you are wondering , I am a longtime and lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns . So , you can say that I am a glutton for punishment [Ha!Ha!Ha!] …

.. yea , I am going to watch the Super Bowl . I am pulling for Denver to win . The big difference will be Seattle ‘ s offence against Denver ‘ s defence . Peyton Manning will find a way to move the ball . Moreno & Ball will help , some , maybe enough . The difference maker will be MarShawn Lynch & Co against Denver ‘ s run defence …

.. If Seattle runs the ball well , then Denver is in trouble . I do not think that Seattle will , unless they bring back the read option and use it a lot .

.. Denver 28 , Seattle 24 ..
