Well, remember when they were getting heart attacks when Nike gave Kapernick some money and pulled the Betsy Ross flag shoe? The business of America is business...until they sell something they don't like.

You absolutely lost me there.

Are you comparing the 8bil loss of a private company with the US govt debt???

If so, then I can only offer the following additional insight on top of that.

ONLY because the poster I was quoting did so.


But I do so love me some rhubarb pie. Wish I could get it here.

I agree, the far left and the far right are raging hypocrites on topics like these.

People vote with their wallets and stop crying when other people do the same.

Now if they want to complain about some companies actions then fine but don't be hypocrites when the shoes on the other foot.

Well of course. The consumers have choices (hopefully; that's becoming less true with telecoms services being oligopolistic with AT&T, Comcast, Verizon and that recent merger with Sprint and T-Mobile - I think)?

I do have certain choices on products not just on quality or price, but also, when applicable, if they treat their staff better than others.

I neither mentioned nor referenced the U.S. national debt. Not sure where you came up with the idea that I did.

But thanks for playing anyway.

Oh poop, went back and reread, and you are quite correct, I misread what you wrote. But I still want rhubarb pie....

If you find that rhubarb pie, you can have my portion, too. I'm an apple pie guy myself.

There's an obvious reason why people don't buy it, and it has nothing to do with politics:

that **** is expensive. It's that simple. That's why I stopped buying it years ago. It is completely stupid to send that much money on razors.

They got away with it for a while, but now brand awareness and acceptance has grown for alternatives that get the job done just as well for less.
