    Carbonite made a statement saying they were dropping Limbaugh from advertising. It worked.
    Their stock has dropped sharpley in the past two days.

    However, it hasn’t done much to contribute to his company’s stock price. Since the market opened on Monday through its close today, Carbonite stock (NASDAQ:CARB) has plummeted nearly 12 percent, outpacing the drop of the NASDAQ index in that same time period by nine-and-a-half points. It was also one of the biggest decliners on the NASDAQ on Tuesday.

    here's a sample letter Carbonite got from a past client.

    I nor my company will not do any further business with your company and plan on spreading the word. You pulled your support of Rush Limbaugh and therefore I’m pulling mine from you. Rather than allowing the MSM or the leftist liberals to drive their agenda by elevating this issue and Rush’s apology…

    ..where in the context of "civil discourse", were they and your group on the following similar situations:

    1. President Obama’s abhorrent apology on the Koran issue ?
    2. Likewise, an apology from Islamic community for 9/11 ?
    3. Eric Holder’s apology to Brian Terry’s family ?
    4. Obama’s apology for American exceptionalism to the world ?
    5. Obama’s apology for all the wasted billions on “green” scams ?
    6. Liberals apology for all those held captive by welfare ?
    7. Obama’s apology to the unemployed ?
    8. The EPA’s apology for destroying America’s business environment ?
    9. Liberalism’s apology for 40 years of failed social policies ?
    10. DOE apology for having absolutely no coherent energy policy ?
    11. Obama’s apology for lying about shovel ready jobs ?
    12. Obama’s apology for growing the size of the useless Fed. Gov. ?
    13. DOJ apology for suing Arizona over not doing its own job ?
    14. Obama’s apology for running over the constitution ?
    15. Obama’s apology for selling America into socialism ?

    The radical left/liberal socialists never apologize to Americans. It time to stop the double standard, not cave to it like your group did !

    Tit for tat. Now that is justice.

    I'll never use them even if they return to their support.

    I just went to Carbonit'es website and sent them a message that I will not do any future business with them if they continue to pull their ads from Rush's show. It took me just a couple of minutes and I hope others do as well.

    It reminds me of the Netflicks deal...We need to vote with our dollar in America to change things. I try not to support anti-freedom/PC/In bed with big government companies...Although that is getting easier with the cost of food, power, healthcare and gas rising, I hardly have any spending money left!!
