Maybe if Wendy's paid a living wage, their employees wouldn't feel compelled to "release" their frustrations.
So I tried the pretzel chicken sandwich, and I thought it came with bacon. But I looked closer and it didn't have any bacon on it. Yet it had a strong bacon flavor to it. So I looked closer, and noticed that they put some kind of yellow cheese whiz on top, and it must have had bacon flavoring added to it. I can't believe Wendy's would stoop so low, that they would substitute bacon-flavored cheese whiz for real bacon! I am so disappointed, I am never going to eat at Wendy's ever again! They must take their customers for suckers.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
I couldn't pick a stock this bad if I tried. Seriosuly, if someone said to me: "Hey Pete, I'll give you $10k if you can pick me a stock I can short for 34% downside in 10 days" -- I wouldn't be able to do it. It takes some kind of unlucky and awful talent to find and select this one particular stock for a long position 10 days ago. In terms of the sheer probability alone. Just sayin....
From the article:
Portland has canned its plan to award an $11.7 million no-bid contract to Motorola and will instead seek competitive proposals for new public-safety radio equipment.
Monday's reversal comes two business days after a Motorola competitor, Florida-based RELM Wireless, formally protested Portland's plan.
Portland first contracted with Motorola in 2007 and city officials attempted to use that contract to upgrade about 3,400 public-safety radios and buy almost 2,700 more. Three years ago, Portland voters approved a $72.4 million bond measure for public-safety upgrades -- including radios -- and Motorola was a major contributor, kicking in $35,000 toward the political campaign.
In its appeal, RELM suggested it could cut the city's expenses from $11.7 million to $4 million.
Christine Moody, the city's chief procurement officer, told The Oregonian on Friday that "further evaluation of the competitive bidding process is being discussed."
On Monday, Moody substantiated RELM's appeal and said in a letter that the city will issue a competitive solicitation in the near future.
RELM President David Storey said his company will bid on the work, although he expressed some concern that Portland could still "lock out the competition" depending on requirements.
I'm not lying, go order a homestyle chicken pretzel sandwich, and you'll see what I'm talking about.
Update: "The Great Pretzel Bun bubble collapse of 2014"
Hi guys. I am half-way through writing the book. It is coming along great. If anyone wants to pre-order a copy just let me know.

You might want to get her eyes checked for cataracts.
I'll be switching to another broker by the end of the year, but I wanted to get some blood money out of TD for all the pain they put me through by canceliing command center 2.0. I just received the following message from them in my inbox:
"...I have taken the courtesy to add 10 free trades to your account for the delay. Those are supposed to come from our marketing department and they have run into some problems getting those on. You should see those now active on the account and they do include the base commission for option trades."
Hmmm, I think they're going to need a bigger bribe.
Prolly right. But mobile gaming is becoming more like a social network. Google might have designs.
"I've been working in games for 14 years, trying to make them a bigger part of popular culture," Palm told NBC News. "For a long time, I thought it was going to be more deeply immersive, open-world games that would do this. But it turned out it had to be simpler games, not more elaborate ones, that would be the real game-changer."

ATLANTA (AP) — A Wendy's employee who dropped a partially smoked blunt in a customer's cheeseburger has been fired and charged with marijuana possession.
Police in the city of Lovejoy, Ga., about 25 miles south of downtown Atlanta, said a customer drove home with her food on Nov. 1, took a bite out of the burger and noticed a strange smell wafting from it.
The woman pulled the bun off and saw a partially smoked blunt inside, police said. A blunt is marijuana rolled into a hollowed-out cigar.
The woman called the restaurant's manager and met there with police soon afterward.
In an incident report released Thursday, authorities said 32-year-old Amy Elizabeth Seiber admitted that the marijuana belonged to her as soon as she saw police standing in the restaurant with her manager.
Seiber told Officer Randall Rowland that it wouldn't make any sense to lie about the marijuana, since she and the restaurant's manager were the only ones working when the customer placed her drive-thru order, Rowland wrote in the report.
Seiber apologized, saying she had misplaced the marijuana, Rowland wrote.
Wendy's officials said they're deeply sorry for what happened.
"Obviously the employee broke the rules and did not follow proper food handling steps," said Wendy's spokesman Denny Lynch. He added that the corporation contacted the restaurant's owner and officials were told that she had been fired.
"They have apologized to the customer and have offered to pay the medical bills," Lynch said. "Furthermore, the franchisee is working on a satisfactory resolution with the customer."
Clayton County court officials were unsure if Seiber had an attorney. A telephone number listed for her was out of service.
A call to the customer who found the drug in her sandwich was not immediately returned.
Soon to be followed by the the great pretzel bun bubble collapse of 2014. I think I will write a book about it. The last chapter is already written.
Jeffrey, you know you are responding to a post of mine that I wrote back in August. For some reason, this spammer loydieiedowler brought this thread to the top by copy/pasting responses to it. There seems to be very few real people on this board, aside from you, me and Mickey.
At any rate, earnings come out Tuesday after the close, and I'm looking forward to see how they do. Conference call is phone-in only. A good quarter would help the stock maintain support and transition smoothly to NASDAQ with a proper reverse split.
This quarter was good. The core business looks solid. If Tekfit ever takes off, this stock has multiple upside. But they've been trying to land a big contract forever it seems. Would Levis take them on again after they dropped them over patent uncertainty? I don't know.
You say: Who is going to fight for PR between now and April?
PR? -- as in public relations?
I can tell you what's going on here. You and lovewqlugira are spammers who are trying to promote your lame website by exploiting TALN's recent rise. Now get lost.
They better not screw shareholders by doing a private placement or preferred offering to pay back the $5.8 million promissory note. This uncertainty is probably why the stock is under pressure. It's getting too close to the wire. NOTE TO LONNIE: DO NOT DILUTE SHAREHOLDERS AGAIN! After all these years of financial engineering that got them nowhere, it's amazing how hard it's been for them to pick themselves up out of the mud and stand on their own two feet. Just get a bank loan and pay the interest. Damn it!
"In the Series B Preferred redemption transaction, the Company used $7.5 million of its cash and issued a $5.8 million short-term, low-interest promissory note in order to complete the redemption. The Company is in the process of pursuing debt financing in order to repay the note on or prior to its maturity date of January 12, 2014."
I swear, this guy made me laugh when he walked onto Cramer's set. He's way over his head. He's so young and wet behind the ears, he reminded me of a 17-year old high school kid on his first college interview. He didn't even know to sit down in the chair. Cramer was like, "Okay, you can stop shaking my hand now son. Please be seated". Hahahaha!! And you guys trust this boy to run a publicly traded company? Yeah, good luck with that.
Seriously, he's got to do something about that haircut. I coudn't stop laughing long enough to hear what he was saying. What was he saying anyway? LOL!
