Bravo! CCE once again admits success of Boycott ...

As most are aware, Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) is the major bottlers and distributor for Coke in "North America." They have also refused to respond or even acknowledge our letters to their bard of directors.

They recently "reported" that their sales in what they call North America was below expectations and announced layoffs (See: Coca-Cola Enterprises is doing so well they are planning layoffs). Just like Coke their marketing staff failed marketing 101.

Coca-Cola Enterprises is doing so well they are planning layoffs

The recent Business headlines have been glowing reviews of Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE). Of course just like Coke( See: Coke 2nd Quarter Results confirm impact of Boycott) - hidden in their voluminous financial report is the simple fact, sales in North America are not doing well. Of course they aren't - Coke has abandoned their core customer base to follow the personal agendas of their "management" Team. Political correctness is their top priority and as the word spreads it does not sell well.

Coke 2nd Quarter Results confirm impact of Boycott

Coke has worked very hard to present a favorable image of their most recent 2nd quarter financial reports. But despite their own admission of double digit increases in efforts to market their products in North American the results are flat.

Atlanta Journal Report shows Coke decline ...

The Atlanta Journal recently released the annual Ranking Of Georgia Companies. For those who would like to look at the report it is at:

 http://www.ajc.com/business/content/business/extra/best2005/bigchart1.html

Since we are in our third year of the Boycott Coke effort we thought we would take a few minutes and see what this report says about the performance of Coke in relationship to other Georgia Companies. After all Coke management decided that using their corporate funds to influence the State government was a top priority.

Coke management [sic] team wins the Duh! award

The latest reports on Coke financials shows world-wide growth, above expectations performance - except for North America. It reports that Coke will be spending 300 - 400 Million extra dollars on marketing in 2005 in an effort to get North American sales back in line with their growth expectations:

In North America, a key business unit for Coke, unit case volume declined 1 percent in the fourth quarter, while full-year unit case volume in North America was flat.

But at the same time that the Coke management [sic] team is planning this massive expenditure of corporate funds, Coke remains more committed to a political agenda than increasing shareholder value. Forcing political correctness upon their customer base remains their priority.

Next Letter to Coke Board of Directors - Coke insults 79% of Georgians

As before we are submitting the following letter for review and you comments before sending. This is your effort, it is your government and Heritage and we are just trying to provide a service to make the effort successful. In the past the review and comments on the proposed letters have certainly improved their quality.

This letter is intended to demonstrate to the Coke just how out of touch with the People of Georgia they have been. They participated in back room wheeling and dealing, used corporate funds to gain unholy influence in our State government and turned their back on the majority of Georgians. The recent Mason Dixon poll documented what we have tried to tell them for three years now.

We have been promoted from do not exist to fringe ...

The first press coverage of our effort has come from a surprising place, The Atlanta Journal Constitution. Now not even Tyrone Brooks, Merle Black or Rusty Henderson would accuse the Atlanta Journal of being biased toward anything Southern. So for the Atlanta Journal to write an article on our effort and elevate us to fringe is really a milestone.

Coca-Cola performance continues to slide ...

After taking a break for the Christmas Season it is time to resume the effort to "encourage" the Coca-Cola Company to get out of politics. Specifically to discontinue using our money to support political correctness, purging of Southern Heritage and desecrating Coke's own Heritage.

To recap our current position, as this effort has continued to grow, North American sales of Coke products have continued to perform below Coke's management expectations. Several news reports have been distributed on this site where Coke management issued press releases stating that North American sales are disappointing.

Letter to Vanguard Index Fund about Coke, please review

One of our members used the form on the Coke web site last week to once again ask about the actions of Coca Cola that we have complained about. Is anyone surprised that they still received basically the same response denying their participation in the Georgia Business PAC.

At some point, surely Coke will realize that their participation is the Georgia Business PAC is a matter of public record and take enough time to at least come up with a new form letter to send in response.

Coca-Cola Enterprises North American sales down 4%, surprise, surprise, surprise

It is interesting that just last month we sent a letter to the CEO and Board of Directors of Coca-Cola Enterprises along with the preceding correspondence with the parent company Coca-Cola. Of course they ignored it, not even having the courtesy of acknowledging receipt.

Of course their North American sales are performing below expectations. When thousands of a company's top customers get so mad that they quit buying their products, their sales come in below expectations.

Coke quarterly profit falls 24%


By SCOTT LEITH
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 10/21/04

Coca-Cola's worldwide sales volume barely budged in the third quarter, while profits tumbled 24 percent.

With those results, new Chairman and Chief Executive E. Neville Isdell was left to reiterate what he's said before — that Coke needs improvement on many levels.

"Overall, I'm not pleased," said Isdell, who is still early in the process of trying to formulate a turnaround plan for Coca-Cola.

Coke's third quarter, which was dampened by poor results in North America and parts of Europe, closed with profits of $935 million, or 39 cents per share.

Update on Coke from Dr. William Swann

The following is written by Dr. William Swann who led the way in starting this effort to get Coke out of politics and to recognize our common Heritage. We hope that all will take a few minutes and read his comments.

They are very much on the mark, and he is correct that the success to date is your success. He is also correct that Coke has taken the attitude of just dismissing us as a bunch of yahoo's. Of course you know that anybody that happens to think anything positive about Southern Heritage is a yahoo. That even includes the inventor of Coke and virtually the whole company up until political correctness set in a few years ago.

Letter To Coca-Cola Enterprises - Board of Directors sent

We would like to thank all who sent comments on the letter to the Board of Directors of Coca-Cola Enterprises. The showing of support was encouraging and the excellent comments have improved the letter.

This will be the first of a monthly letter to one of the many bottling companies that distribute Coke products. So far - Coke executives have shown that they care more about their politically correct agenda and capability to buy government influence than either their long time customers or stockholders. But this is a position that will crumble over time.

Letter to CCE Board of Directors, please review

Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. is the primary Coke bottling company for North America. As you will see in following articles they also participate in various Political Action Committees. It is time that they are officially notified that the efforts of Coke and its associated companies should get out of politics and quit trying force their politically correct agenda on the American public.

A draft letter is presented below. This is your effort and your comments, suggestions and corrections are welcome. Standing together we can preserve our birthright for our future generations and put a crimp in political correctness run amok in our country. This letter with any modifications will be sent next Monday, October 11.

Letter To Board of Directors sent, now for Coca-Cola Enterprises

The letter below has been sent to the Coke Board of Directors. While they mull over the growing boycott we need to introduce ourselves to the bottling company. This is actually a separate company and our boycott affects them just as much. A sample letter will be posted later this week.

The Coca-Cola Company Should Get Out  of Politics Petition

Keep spreading the word, we think that CCE should know why their business is declining, not growing! We are sure that their stockholders will be interested.

Letter To Coke Board of Directors, please review

With the recent announcement by the new Coke Chief Executive Officer that their sales in North America are down, it is time for us to once again, let them know why.

Coke was invented by a Confederate officer and for many years Coke used it's history to sell it's products. In fact it was the large base of Southern customers that gave Coke the early success which made the company  the worlds largest.

But then came political correctness and globalism. Today Coke has become just another corrupt American corporation and the management sold not only their heritage but ours as well on the auction block of political correctness.

Coke helps remove Southern Flag in Augusta, Georgia

Once again:

Those who preach diversity, practice exclusion. Those who preach tolerance practice intolerance.

The NAACP in Augusta has instructed the City of Augusta that the NAACP will determine what Flags will fly. After all, the Chamber types across Georgia have already stated that the NAACP will be their spokesman on what the citizens of Georgia can do and think.

In prepared statements, his first about the business since rejoining Coke June 1, Isdell said he isn't satisfied with the company's current results. Troubles are most pronounced in Germany, North America and key parts of Europe.

CCE slashes earnings forecast


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Coca-Cola Enterprises sharply cut its 2004 earnings expectations Wednesday, citing softer-than-expected trends in sales volume.

The Atlanta-based bottler expects full-year earnings to range from $1.26 to $1.30 per share, excluding a nonrecurring item of 5 cents per share.

ALL SOUTHERNERS SHOULD BOYCOTT COKE
Commentary by Dr. William H. Swann
 

To All Brothers and Sisters of Confederate Heritage:

There is ongoing talk about boycotting Gettysburg [over the "Confederate flag lynching" incident] and it is a very worthy goal. I will never go back there after the desecration of our beloved and justly honored Confederate Battle Flag. I am the proverbial elephant in that I never forget, and I'm willing to face GOD with my sin of not forgiving the craven coward who is so hatefully abusing our Noble Confederate Battle Flag.

Therein lies the problem though. Most of your readers are familiar with our ongoing Southern Boycott of Coca-Cola. For those late coming to that party, Coca-Cola was founded by a Confederate Veteran. Since its inception until 1998, Coca-Cola never hesitated to promote their Southern Roots, and Southern Base. In return it was considered almost sacrilege among folks in the South to ever drink anything else.

Letter to Warren Buffett, member Coke Board of Directors

November 18, 2003

BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY INC.
Mr. Warren Buffett
1440 Kiewit Plaza
Omaha, NE 68131

Dear Mr. Buffett:

I seriously doubt you’ll ever see this letter, problems addressed here will in all likely-hood be handled by a form letter or possibly by one of your subordinates. Since you have long been a hero of mine I will do my best to address to you whether you see this missive or not.

I am writing you in your capacity as one of the largest, if not the single largest, stockholders of Coca-Cola Stock.

There is an ongoing boycott of Coca-Cola Products within the Southern Heritage Preservation movement. Surprised? You shouldn’t be, anything connected with the preservation of the Southern Heritage is very politically incorrect.

Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to thank each and ever one of you who have made the commitment to discontinue the use of Coke products until this issue is settled.

Turns out that it takes quite a while to print all of the petition signatures. We would also like to thank all of those who participated in the drafting of the letter.

No longer will corporations be able to use YOUR money to force a politically correct agenda upon your grandchildren and insult you at the same time.

Coca-Cola Bottling Company Third Quarter Reports shows sales decline ...

Of course Coke and its subsidiaries will present the best possible explanation for their financial reports. But if you read the third quarter report carefully you will see that their fate is sealed. Of course Coke does not expect us to even be able to read, in their eyes we are just "rednecks"!

When Coke was a smaller company, they treated Our Heritage respect and even used it to make money. But now that Coke, like many former American corporations have become "globalists" they now have a disdain for Our and Their Heritage.

Coke North America sales are weak point in their financial report ...

Coke recently reported increased profits for their new world order operation, but results are lagging in North America. Hmmmm, I wonder where our Boycott Scalla- Cola er ... Coke efforts will be shown on their financial report?

"helped make up for flat unit case sales growth of 1 percent in North America."

They also cut 1,000 jobs in North America, contributing to the slow economy. In addition to those lost by sales of their products from thousands of Southerners boycotting their products, how many are the result of NAFTA/GAFTA? Their shining star is none other than China! This company is sloughing its way through the gutter toward the cesspool.

Georgians show disgust with Coke using their money to buy political influence

Coke is a product many of us grew up with. All of my life, Coke has been my soft drink. It was invented by a Confederate Veteran, Coke was a Southern Company and as far as I was concerned it was the only soft drink of choice.

Then came the shock of my life. I found out that the Coca-Cola Company was using my money, to desecrate Southern Heritage. They were using my money to buy political influence to force political correctness on the people of Georgia and other States as well.

Boycott Coke Yard Signs now available

As part of the effort to end political correctness run amok in Georgia, many Georgians are getting yard signs. Based upon the very successful Let Us Vote and BOOT BARNES yard signs of last year, various TurnCoats are being honored with personalized yard signs.

The most popular is of course a SONNY LIED yard sign.

Coca-Cola Under Federal Investigation on Ex-Worker Allegations

"The company will cooperate with the inquiry" by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Georgia in Atlanta, Coca-Cola said in a one-paragraph statement. A Coca-Cola spokeswoman declined to provide further details.

Athens-area Georgia League of the South Joins Boycott Scalla-Cola
March 30, 2003


"For decades 'Coke' was synonymous with 'cola' in Georgia, representing the pride the citizens of this state had in that prosperous product from right here at home. One did not ask for a cola or a soft drink and certainly not a Pepsi, but simply said, 'Please bring me a Coke.'  

Now all that has changed. After Coca-Cola's scalawag support of Roy Barnes and his cohorts in ramming through a change of Georgia's true and honorable flag bearing the Cross of St. Andrew, after Coca-Cola's support of those same corrupt politicians in the 2002 elections and after Coca-Cola's continued attempts to block the opportunity of the people of the State of Georgia to finally have a vote on their flag, Coca-Cola is now synonymous not with a refreshing drink, but with greed, betrayal and deceit. These things are not acceptable to the Southern palate.

Coke should look in a mirror ...

It has been very sad to watch the Coca-Cola Company turn on its own Heritage and use Our Money to attack Southern Heritage. Many like myself have always though very highly of Coke, but the recent efforts by Coke to support the theft of Our State Flag in Georgia was cause for re-valuating support for this company.

In this writers opinion, the company does not justify our support. In fact it has not for some time. Part of the fault lies with American Society today, where we allow major corporations to stray from their corporate purposes and do not hold them accountable for their corporate actions.

Not the first time that Coke has sold principles for money ....

Sometimes during one of the many reversal of fortune so characteristic for the North African theater of war, German troops on the offensive stumbled across a cache of Coca-Cola left behind by retreating Allied troops. But the welcome find came with a snag and thirsty throats stayed dry despite the heat: The enemy had forgotten to leave some ice as well, and since every German soldier knew that a bottle of Coca-Cola had to be consumed eiskalt, the booty remained worthless unless somebody came up with another method of refrigeration under the scorching African sun.

And so begins this article published in The Truth Newspaper about another time that Coke sold American Heritage for dollars. This article presents the history of Coke in Germany, during WWII. A must read, click here.
