Just stop whatever you’re doing and watch this video…trust us

One of the biggest stories of the year for both GlennBeck.com and TheBlaze.com was the heartwarming commercial featuring the relationship between a Golden Retriever puppy and one of the Budweiser Clydesdale horses. That video quickly went viral, and 48 million people took a few minutes to watch it and feel good for a few minutes. Chevy must have taken notice, as they have released their own video showing the relationship over the years of a young woman and her puppy Maddie.

FYI: After you watch, here are the big stories you need to pay attention to today:

    these are hard to look at. I helped to bring in several of our animals. I was the first thing they saw when they opened their eyes. I took care of them and in a sense they took care of me. then at the end of their lives I held them and became the last loving thing they saw before they closed their eyes for the last time. in fact, it was 5 years before I could say yes to a new puppy. and yes, we will often just sit close and look into each others eyes connecting on a deep level and I know one day we will do this for the last time, and it hurts but if we are going to allow love into our lives we must accept the pain and know the joy is going to make it all worth while!!

    Pappa Joe, what do you say to the stock holders who may have needed to cash out for retirement – who got cashed out for nothing by the government. That wasn’t a home LOAN. The came out of chapter 11 with 20K fewer jobs. Wonder why GM didn’t shed those jobs before to avoid bankruptcy? (hint: UAW) And I drive a FORD.

  • Anonymous

    Yeap the Chevy logo kinda did it a disservice for me too. I will always think twice prior to loading my loved ones including my puppy into a GM product. Down the list for me at the options for car rentals. My attitude as a consumer was altered by several factors, it doesn’t have that much to do with the bail out, that’s only one element, it’s the union getting those jobs and back pay for guys that should have been fired for drinking and doing drugs while on breaks during their shift. And there is no confirmation it’s not still going on. Then they advertize how safe the products are. Hypocritical right?? Instead of being rehired I thought they ought to have been prosecuted for the threat to public safety. GM knuckled under and the unions prevailed regardless of market impact from the public perception. But GM recouped as they took the bail out money and expanded the R&D and manufacturing capability in China not the US. But you really can’t blame them for that move, gotta stay competitive on the global market, why do it with company $$. You won’t see the Unions influence in their products from China. Guess that’s a good thing??

    Pappa Joe, “that shit jap crap” hmm I would have to say that “shit jap crap” has much better quality then Ford GM or dodge, I am a big fan of the big three but I wouldn’t touch GM or ford right now as there quality is just shit, Toyota is crap now and so is honda (which I see everyday at work) The only good Japanese car maker these days is Mazda. Kia, and Hyundai are Korean. I work in Vehicle Quality so I do know what I am talking about. I did look at every Car maker products at teh Canadian International Autoshow last month and was completely disgusted with For and GM with there craptastic interiors that were so flimsy and cheap feeling and doors that felt tingly and not solid like the Mazda 3 or the Honda Civic. Yes I did tell GM and ford what I thought and lets hope that they can fix their screw-ups and make a better quality car next year

    Ford may own Mazda but there quality is much better then any ford I have seen, I like fords but what I saw at the auto show was disappointing. Ford also has nothing to do with the quality and design of any Mazda as you can tell by fords current line up all ford can do is copy styling cues from Mazda but for has fallen in the quality department whereas Mazda has made better quality vehicles over the last few years and only a few recalls compared to fords countless recalls of the last 10 years.

    Don’t be naive. What did you expect to accomplish with your comment to a random internet user? Sure I will never purchase from GM, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that I called my pup to me just to watch the ad with her. Take it with a grain of salt. There is no need to name call. Keep in mind that marylou45 has a life, similar to yours, love, discomfort, pain, happiness, and eventually death. What is so different about you that grants you the special ability to call her a witch? I love you, Freya Quinn. I hope you find that kindness in yourself.

The God Made a Farmer Commercial was great but Farmers need trucks, and farmers need strong tough trucks. *I think that commercial was Ford of Dodge* However I’m not seeing how this commercial draws a strong connection to a persons love for a dog and selling cars. I ran over my dog in my car and I felt terrible and I had a less passionate emotion from watching this but I wouldn’t make a commercial about my experience. I’m not knocking the content of the commercial only the application of its content.

Fourth, for the anti-union turds, we gave you the middle class. You should thank us, instead of talking smack.

    So why were you driven to vulgarity by DL’s comment. The commercial was great and DL said so. But, that doesn’t change the fact that GM is not out from under its nationalization. And I have to be critical of management that did not fight the government take over. Most are still there. I have to be critical of a union there that did not fight the government take over! They are still there!

    Pappa Joe, you are a prime example of the under-informed useful idiot. They DID NOT pay back the taxpayer money. By the suspension of bankruptcy law billions more were lost by taxpayers and tens of thousands of retired people, including union members, who were invested in GM. If the bankruptcy laws had been followed GM would not have gone out of business. They would have reorganized and cut the tail on extravagant union contracts. Some jobs would have been lost, but not near as many as were lost from the illegal cancellation of dealer contracts. Pop, rather than sitting around composing vulgar and insulting comments, educate yourself. AT LEAST learn how to rebut a a statement with which you disagree with reference to documentable facts rather than vulgar slurs!

    If you really want to get upset, check on Cerberus (I think I spelled it right), Dan Quayle is one of the big wigs. They bought Chrysler and G.M.A.C.. Got G.M.A.C. into the home mortgage business right before the big bail out. Put 1 billion down on Chrysler, on a 7 billion dollar by out, and collected some thing like 16 billion in bail out. No telling what they got for G.M.A.C. when that mortgage bail out happened. I would be willing to bet that GM would be bankrupt right now if it wasn’t for Local, County, State and Federal fleet sales.

    How is it “not purging GM” when Rick Wagoner was effectively fired by Obama’s direct “request” that he step down?

    http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0309/20625.html

    In case you didn’t know, many believe that unions outlived their usefulness when the Chinese, Irish, Blacks, and destitute were no longer dying on railroads and working in deplorable, filthy conditions for 14 hours a day, and when companies were regulated into an inability to engage in strike-busting (one of the regulations that I DO agree with, up to the point of non-governmental jobs), and now are only part of a real-life Sopranos crime syndicate that is itself sending middle class jobs out of the country by supporting the candidates that cause the business climate to suck in the US… which means that modern unions are effectively engaging in destroying the middle class.

    I’m open to learning here, so if you could refrain from words like “turd” in your reply, I would be deeply appreciative.

  • Mike Nelson

    I want you to be right about this… but it’s the PR people that need to wake up and stop the deception.

    Effective PR does nothing to fix the past, it only enables forgetting the parts that didn’t work. It will take some time before this can again be a trusted AMERICAN company, if ever.

Hasn’t hired a single person, cheats on his taxes (what he is taxed) and is still on the government dole in the form of unemployment, food stamps, housing assistance, ad nauseum. GM got the same bailout everyone else get to scale, but employees 10s of thousands, provides benefits, and is involved in countless charitable organizations. So our sorry assed government bailed them out, get over it already. You “I wont buy from them” attitude just goes to show you how selfish you are in your own little perfect world.

    I’ll tell you what has been forgotten.
    In 1950 GM was the largest Corporation in the world and the first Corp. to pay over $1 Billion in taxes (in one year). In today’s dollars that is almost half of what GM was forgiven 60+ years later.
    Since 1950 our government has more than once forced GM to downsize and has subsidized other Corporations to take market share away from GM. While they were forced to downsize, they still had to honor Union agreements that made reducing it’s labor force extremely expensive. Our Government owes GM big. Especially City Governments like Pontiac, MI that over taxed them for decades. I am a second generation retired Hourly Worker from GM.

    I admire the zeal, but “christ” isnt his name. It is a title. Just like “god” isnt a name. It is a title. Secondly, that is not what it means to take a name in vain. It means to swear by that name falsely, or to claim “thus says [name]“, when it isnt so.

    Why is car advertising turning into tobacco advertising? Instead of selling the product, they sell an image of the person you might become if you buy the product.

    “Most of the people making negative comments, are because they know chevrolet makes better cars and trucks they always have.”

    Chevrolet USED TOO make better cars and trucks.

    Might want to take a close look at your new silverado, It’s got an aluminum frame……and by the way….IT’S MADE IN MEXICO.

    So GM takes a bailout, doesn’t pay it back, and outsources the jobs to Mexico. Yah, I think I’ll pass on buying another Chevy.

    Who says that I wanted to be in the middle class? Unions always held highly skilled workers back so that low skilled workers could reap more than they earned. There is no living wage. All prices are tagged to the minimum wage and fuel prices. Raise the minimum wage, decrease the number of intro workers. Try to force employers to hire more workers? Expect an exodus!

  • Anonymous

    It is quite easy. The Democrats subverted the unions and turned them socialist. It is the lowest common denominator. Vote Democrat, get free stuff.

  • Vernon Viner

    GM is so wonderful. They take the bailouts, Don’t pay it back, then move production to china and mexico.
    Joe Neighbor is a former GM employee on unemployment and food stamps because GM sent his job making the new silverado to Mexico. He put in a transfer request to make the volt, but was told that job was shipped to China, and don’t bother with any other transfer requests because GM plans on opening 4 more plants in China.

    I sit proudly on my high horse. After more than 30 years buying Gm products, I can no longer support a company that takes taxpayer money and use it to move jobs out of this country.
    Guess that makes me “selfish in my own little perfect world”.

And don’t smooth it over with “it isn’t HIS name” Mock me all you want, I have to stand up for my redeemer! (and if that’s radical — so be it!) One more thing! When you are on your death bed or in a tragic situation call out HIS name! (and you just may) He will hear you! Deuteronomy 5:11

    There was another car commercial a while back about a guy and his Labrador retriever. The dog started out as a puppy and aged as the guy got married and had a family. Does anyone remember what they were selling? It was a good commercial, but kind of sad, too.

    Very moving about how a dog is important in a families life. I can relate whole heartily.But if Chevy is trying to relate a car as important as a dog they missed the mark. I don’t get so attached to my car.

    Bruce, Allah isnt a name, everyone including radical muslims are aware of this. Muhammed is his name, and that is the name you are forbidden to use. Allah just means God. Nothing more. Besides, if there is a God, he doesn’t give two bits whether or not you say his name in vane or not, stop believing the fairytale book that was man made, to control peoples minds like yourself.

    The original comment was that GM purged the dealerships, when it was Oblabla that did it. In case you didn’t know it, the railroads were finished before GM was ever thought of. I worked at GM for 35 years, under filthy dangerous deplorable conditions. In the old foundry days we had two days off per year and required daily overtime. As a skilled tradesman I worked a 7 day schedule most of those years, and at times 20 to 24 hours non-stop during emergencies. The “union thug” concept is a crock. We elect from the rank and file. Our reps do not come from some Hollywood crime family. As far as jobs moving overseas,both political parties are to blame, and it’s been going on since the ’60s. Not all union members vote for the libtard progressives either. Some of us are smart enough to vote for our own best interest and the interest of the country. GM is one of the few large companies to not understand their workforce is an asset. I was talking to a superintendent (upper middle level management) one day and was trying to tweak him up. Told him “you know how top management is, they will spend a dollar to screw us out of a dime.” He turned to me and said “son, I’ve worked here for 40 years, and they will spend a whole lot more than that to screw you out of a penny.” Explain to me again why we don’t need a union.

    GMAC has been in home mortgages for years, and G.M. gave up most of its fleet business when it killed the Caprice. The bulk of that was replaced by the Canadian built Crown Vic. It’s starting to swing back tho. Fords are junk. Hard to maintain and the cops don’t like them. That’s why there are so many Mexican built Tahoes and Canadian built Dodge super-troopers.

    Of course, the Bible is the final authority in this discussion as to whether or not “Christ” is Jesus’ name. Acts 2:38 – “Then Peter said to them, ‘Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. ‘” NKJV There are several other Scriptures that say “Christ” is His name – Acts 3:6, Acts 4:10, Acts 8:12, Acts 16:18, 1 Corinthians 1:2, etc.

  • Glennfriend67

    Rock on, Bruce. In my faith, we call it a blasphemy to use the Lord’s name (title, whatEVER you want to call it) in vain. You are cursing the Lord, that is no different than taking his name in vain, and it is a big-time blasphemy. These people who curse His name are foolish indeed, for when they cry out for His help, they just might not get it. I’m tired of the casual way people toss His name around as if it’s nothing. Jesus the Christ’s name is EVERYTHING, especially now, during the season of Lent. Turn to the Lord, with fasting, weeping and repentance, that He may reconcile you unto Himself. Bruce, I wonder if these people who have turned away to the pagan religion of secularism are aware of what shaky ground they’re really on?

  • Glennfriend67

    So says my Bible too, Linda, the NAB. Foolish, foolish secularists. We know our Scripture.

    I wouldn’t either, Bruce. I’d rather have a 1967 Chevy Impala. 1967 because that’s the year I was born, and an Impala because they were just so COOL! What? Girls can’t have a muscle car? Oh, yes we can! Vroom vroom!

    It doesn’t hurt to be respectful to God by not using His name loosely and irreverently. When you lack respect for His name, it shows you lack respect for Him, and that IS taking His name in vain.

  • Mike Nelson

    I was a part-time worker for UPS in the state of Wisconsin, when union membership was not mandatory in many shops, but when paying union dues, was, regardless one’s desire to participate, be represented, or actually get representation. In fact, it was only recently that Governor Scott Walker’s Act 10 initiative changed this policy of extortion and robbery.

    After suffering a substantial back injury on the job (heavy lifting and twisting was part of the preload shift that wokred prior to drivers running their routes) and filing a grievance with the Teamsters union to which I did not wish to belong, but to whom I was forced to pay dues as a payroll function, rather than a voluntary membership, I was told – in these words – that, “You’re a part-timer. We don’t really represent you. Maybe you should look for another job.”

    That was my first experience in the job market after leaving military service.

    I will NEVER trust a union again, and will advocate against unions at every opportunity because of the treatment I have personally received, and have seen others suffer under similar straits.

    When people say “it’s all politics” they are RIGHT, and when unions are involved, the little guy gets run over every time. Unions are corporations, and when workers get screwed, unions account first for their own survival – from the top down, Soprano-style.

    What your boss told you sounds more to me like propaganda based on a kernel of truth, but I’d bet that kernel is based in personal politics, and that it would have been more accurately expressed as, “Our bosses don’t get along, so we have to make it look like THEY are the ones screwing you, because it will look bad if you think WE are, too.”

    Regards for your history of labor, but on this issue we will never agree. Perhaps, just maybe, now if unions have to WORK for their membership, rather than fat themselves on the unwilling extorted wages they are unwilling or unable to earn, MAYBE there will come a time when my attitude changes, but from what I have seen, unions are criminal business enterprises run by charismatic thieves.

  • Corey Flowers

    Agreed that we shouldnt use His name irreverently. However, the point of conflict was that “christ” is not a name, it is a description. “Yeshua/Jesus” is a name, when the messenger came to tell Miriam what to name the child it was this name. “Christ/Messiah” is what He is, meaning “anointed one”. It is like saying “Jesus the anointed”. “Anointed” would not be his name.

  • Corey Flowers

    You are misunderstanding something, my friend. The word “christ” is just a description meaning “anointed one”. Jesus is Jesus’ name, christ is what his job was. It is like saying “Jesus the anointed did this or the anointed one, Jesus, did that”. The messenger delivered the name and that name was Jesus… or more accurately “Yeshua”. :)

  • Corey Flowers

    No, you’re not being radical. You are being typical. You are confused about the difference between a name and a title. God is not a name, it is a title. Thats why there are false gods, His name is Yehovah and he is god, but god isnt his name. Your faith can tell you that they are names all you like, I wasnt debating your faith and nor do I wish to. I was merely stating a fact as spoken in the scriptures. If your faith is different than that, that is your business. Shalom.

  • Corey Flowers

    And I might add this, to be clear. I have a wonderful relationship with the Messiah and I follow His words and call on His name for mercy and have for years. That has nothing to do with the fact that “christ” is not a name, but a job description. :)

  • Corey Flowers

    Well, while your english bible says his name is “LORD”, my Hebrew bible says His name is Yehovah, which doesnt mean “lord”. It is a form of a Hebrew word “Ehyeh/havah” meaning “to be”, which is why he said “I AM (ehyeh) who (asher) I AM (ehyeh).

  • Corey Flowers

    Exactly. Words have meanings and those meanings keep on getting shifted further and further. Some have shifted so far as to currently mean the opposite of what they originally meant.
