I don't understand the need for half a dozen blades on a razor anyway.

I buy 'bic metal' razors. Just a simple, single-blade disposable razor that doesn't clog up. I don't know if they even sell them in stores anymore- they're on Amazon for less than a dollar each.

But I'm a lazy slob and only shave every other day. Some people may need the Mach 20:

In that case, it must be Trumps hating on Apple and Google and FB and Amazon that is making them do so well this quarter! You can't have one without the other........that is, we could picks thousands of companies and you could fool yourself as to the reason why they are doing well...or not.

"Cnn.com is the #1 web news outlet (after google news) and NYT and WaPo aren't far behind".....

According to your theories, this is because Trump hates them all???

Oil went WAY up today......is that because of something Trump Cultists think?

You have to stop allowing all these crazy theories room in your head. Despite all the anecdotes you see and hear here and elsewhere, there is no American let-up of purchase of Chinese goods. None. In fact, there is an increase. But if we listened to crazy theories, we'd say millions of Americans must "care enough" that they are avoiding Chinese goods because the Dear Leader doesn't like them!

Peace with North Korea in our time...because, after all, Ballistic Missile Tests don't count!

"The goods trade deficit with China, a focus of President Donald Trumpís ďAmerica FirstĒ agenda, increased 12.2% to $30.2 billion, with imports rising 12.8%"

So, carefully, explain this to us? That's a MASSIVE increase from China recently.

Incredible off topic rant. Deflection, conflation, distortion. A veritable trifecta of SJW rage!

We also have Trump in the White House, and the knowledge that Hillary Clinton will NEVER be president.

That’s it. Nothing more. Now what the hell is making you so butthurt as it appertains to that? SMH
Nothing more except the insinuation that it's customers need to be told that in a razor ad.

Marketing 101: Don't insult your customers. Even if it means sacrificing empty virtue-signaling.

Gillette has definitely gotten on my boycott list. But so has Budweiser and Kellogg's. I try to avoid them but won't go out of my way to do it.

There are many, many companies that have jumped on the Leftist, "Woke", Virtue Signaling band wagon. It is disgusting to the point it is difficult to avoid some of them as they are so pervasive now.

It is a very disturbing trend, as more and more large corporations are now Progressive, and Democrat run. They also donate, and promote politicians. For example, Comcast's backing and financing of Obama, and now Biden.

If Gillette still want to talk about virtue signaling, they should stop to ignore toxic femininity.

It's the 2nd part of that which really matters.....I doubt you or anyone else looks at the fine print and realizes that these companies often make many other things.....

They probably serve as OEM's also to many generic brands.

Who cares? The perception that you are doing something is simply fantasy. The USA economy could care less whether Gillette or CVS brand razors are sold (or Harrys!).

Well. in another of those stunning reversals and admissions, the Right now admits that the Engine driving business and the US Economy does not contain THEM.......

My head has been spinning for years. After all, Dems don't work or own anything. They simply want more food stamps.....
