Nov 17th 2009 12:12PM Come on people STOP and think about it , a 10 yr old is so upset with gay rights that he refused the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance.This has ballon/boy writen all over it. There is a adult here some were just look closely and you will find him and how did it become Nat News over night. The gay movement is trying to make this kid The Gay Rights Poster Child. This child is being exploited by some pro gay rights adult to make headlines. THIS IS NOT A REAL STORY. Please some one look deep into this and you will find a kid brainwashed being told how mean the whole world is to gay couples. I guess next week he will be calling all of his class mates stupid B's. If they don't agree with him. STOP THE MADNESSSSSSS
Aug 10th 2009 11:44AM Good luck to the family ,but I'm wounering what does (Negotiations Never Completed ) , it not as if someone was in the store one day and happen to see a $150.00 bottle Duke/E Cognac on the self and contacted the family. It's hard to belive that a company would invest millions into putting a new product on the market and not have some idea of the trademark rights. Something is not on the up & up here.
To the Ellington family , don't kill the golden goose (It's better to have 25% of the profits for a lifetime than all the profits for one year. After all Harbrew has done all the work all you have to do is go to the mailbox and get the check. And with the economy in the state that it is in WHO is buying $150.00 Cognac??? Bad timeing , very bad timeing.
To:HARBREW IMPORTS If there is any chance you might lose the court case JUST Drop It. Pull it from the market pay the Ellingtons off and store it for two/ three yrs then sell as a colletable for $200.00 ea. Or you can flood the market with all you have in stock at cost ,keep all blend rights & packageing and rename the cognac MICHELLE/the first with a sister blend named CONDOLEZZA / xo or CONDOLEZZA/ Executive. Both would be a smooth , rich, brown blend with great teatse. After all who all who is going to pay $150.00 for something call Beyonce , Jay-z or Little-Kim. Please. You will need a name of someone of class and respect.
Or just give someone in the Ellington family with the Ellington name a position with Harbrew as VP of U.S. Sales or something, with a car, office good salary based on sales. Sales good , salary good sales go down salary goes down.
