After desperately casually ransacking the Internets shopping online for a product that would make our dick thick and kick-start reinvigorate our love life, we were briefly encouraged hearing the earnest lady lawyer on sports radio KIROAM promoting a product called Retoxor.
Wow! The Mormon Church, who owns the KIROs (and konservative KTTH) have long turned down ads for alcohol, the lottery, casinos, and sex-related products. So we figured that "the outer liquid capsule of Retoxor must really be "medically proven," and would definitely, no doubt "ensure a rapid and almost instant uptake of the clinical tissue-stimulating ingredients, [to go] to work widening benefits," as promised.
We could almost feel the widening benefits starting to surge. We dreamed the old dream of marching with the Terrible Swift Sword into heretofore unconquered "clinical tissues." Retoxor was, after all, "Discovered by Three Former Medical University Students."
With our implicit trust in Mormon business ethics, and having known many former medical university students, we asked ourselves? "what could go wrong?"
But before we plunked down the $153.99 for a 3 months supply, we put Retoxor into the Google machine and... OMG!
Seems quite a few needle-dicked men who did plunk down the gelt, had quite a lot to say about Retoxor: a) it didn't work; b) the company, within 24 hours, used or sold the men's personal contact information which launched an avalanche of spam and "harassing sales calls." c) despite cancelling by phone within the 30 days of the promised money-back period, the money was taken from the pencil-dicked patient's bank account with "no refund in sight." The company had to shut down an earlier version of the drug (Prolixus) because of legal entanglements from fraud complaints.
Made us wonder why Bonneville would accept this advertising. In the first place, they broke their own rule by accepting the sex-based product, thinking, apparently, they could get away with it by running these spots only on sports radio, where some of the listeners are weak, sad, and desperate men (like ourselves) who tune-in daily for sporting affirmations of their (our) masculinity.
That the product is the object of so many scam and fraud complaints is another matter- but hey, caveate emptor, sucker- this here's free market capitalism.
Bonneville International isn't just owned by some jack Mormons, it's owned outright by the LDS Church. According to Salt Lake City Tribune reporter, Glen Warchol, this ain't the first time they've seen to be blind to their own stated principles. The Code of Deseret Media was installed in 2009 and was supposed to force a “‘reawakening to righteousness,’ and be a ‘puritanical purge’ and series of ‘reorganizations’ at the Deseret News [their flagship paper] that replaced experienced reporters and editors with younger, more light-filled, devout [and cheaper] people.”
They made a big deal of removing Sean Hannity from their mother station, KSL in Salt Lake City in deference to their Code. But they didn't touch the delusional pig, Glenn Beck, or Hannity in markets like Seattle. They did cut the mic of vile reactionary scum, Michael Savage in Seattle, but for the most part, kept the wingers that pulled the ratings.
You don't have to dig deep to uncover the hypocrisy of this religious institution, which is so often the case with institutional religions... especially the ones involved in for-profit business.
But the LDS Church, because of Mitt Romney, will soon be given the colonoscopy of a presidential campaign. They might be well-advised to pick off such low-hanging fruit as this.
