My thoughts, too. Simplest. App. Ever.
Voting is, of course, important, but it’s perhaps even more important to “vote” with one’s wallet. If consumers held companies accountable for their actions (and if there was transparency about their unsavory practices), then about the only business regulations we’d need would be ones to ensure transparency. But far too people care about issues such as inhumane working conditions, environmental degradation, etc., etc. if they result in prices going down by a few percentage points.
I hate Apple, but if they came with a fully functional Dump tRump app, I’d definitely be standing in line to buy one.
The state’s covered in water now, and will be covered in pig excrement once the waters recede. If Carolina pols don’t believe in the very clear hazards of factory farming animals, how can they believe in the more abstract notion of climate change?
Definitely a skull. But on the topic of evil companies, c’mon, what about Apple? Even if you say that their horrific labor practices in China are par for the corporate course, Apple is still loathsome. They refuse to “play nicely” with anyone. If I lose my Android charger, I can use the one that came with my Kindle, or the one that came with my bike light, or the one that came with pretty much any rechargeable tech product that’s been made in the last 10 years. Lose or break my headphones? Replace them with just about any headphones that have been made in the last 20 years. Want to move an MP3, MP4, JPG, etc., between Android & my computer? Just drag them via File Explorer (instead of trying to navigate that dreadful iTunes store). Need to add storage? Buy a $10 memory card and insert it. iPhone and iPaid – no “back” button. What?! Macs – no right mouse key. What century is this? The first Apple computer and first iPhone were innovative, but otherwise they’ve been far better marketers than innovators. (OK, granted, Macs tend to be more secure &, given that they’re UNIX-based, are better-suited to some coding and visual arts whatnot, but on the whole, the company is reprehensible.)
Not to mention that when supply exceeds demand, prices go up. People who burn their shoes will likely buy other shoes as replacements. Even if they don’t buy Nikes again, there will still be a spike in sneaker sales (anti-totalitarian people buying Nikes in support of the company’s stance, and anti-free speech folks buying other brands to replace the (already paid-for) shoes that they burned), and likely a resultant bump in prices (and profits). Ka-ching! One concern, though – tRumpites are already, umm…, differently abled. Won’t the inhalation of rubber and plastic fumes simply exacerbate this condition?
It’s hard to understand the anti-protesters. What is more American than taking a stand (or a knee) for a cause that is larger than yourself? And the hypocrisy of the anti-protesters is blinding. Where was the outrage over fans and players whose focus is elsewhere or are joking around during the anthem? Or fans who use the playing of the anthem as an opportunity to stock up on beer and hot dogs? And then there are the anti-protesters who show their disdain for the players’ protest by holding up signs or booing… …during the anthem itself. How is protesting the protests during the anthem not just as bad or worse?
The higher the quality of the beer, the less likely it’s a twist-off.
I don’t know what world you’re living in or what you’re smoking*, but even if Mueller has a video of tRump and Putin hashing out a plan to steal the election, Trump will be able to explain it away to the satisfaction of his loyal hordes. And as long as 30-some percent of the country sees tRump as the nation’s salvation, we’ve got a big problem. Any hardship that tRump encounters will be somebody else’s fault and evidence of anti-American forces at work, deepening the chasm between the pro- and anti-tRump sides even further. And if the jackass is actually forcefully removed from office? The question isn’t whether or not there will be an armed rebellion, but if it’ll be large and sustained enough to result in CWII. There aren’t many (any?) positive paths out of this morass. (*If it’s the latter, can I have some?)
