War? Sounds Like a Plan

Kellogg’s has decided that they won’t advertise with Breitbart because Breitbart is not sufficiently anti-Trump.

That sounds an awful lot like something Hitler would say.

That’s the game that Kellogg’s wants to play? Fine.

For once, it’s a company that our family actually does business with, or used to do business with, and they’ve just declared us the enemy. Fine. We don’t do business with our enemies, so fuck you very hard, Kellogg’s.

Like Ace, we’d much prefer for corporations to stay the fuck out of politics, it would be a smart business decision for one, not that American businesses are known for being smart. Having attended business school in Europe, we have to wonder why people in this country getting an MBA don’t just buy vodka and weed with the money instead, because MBAs over here aren’t worth the sheepskin they’re printed on. But mostly because businesses are, or should be, in business to make money. Another thing that schools offering MBAs in this country appear to not understand.

Declaring a huge portion of your customer base an enemy doesn’t seem like a smart business move to us. But, then again, we were taught by people who weren’t idiots, like the “professors” in this country. If it wasn’t for the solid foundation that this nation’s predecessors built, we would make Venezuela look like an economic powerhouse based on the idiocy that is taught in American business schools.

Thing is, if they want to engage in the culture wars, they should get what they want. Burn them down. They like to sic their mobs on people who have the nerve to think differently, we have mobs of our own. We never mobilized them before since we’re rational human beings, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t.

If you’re Levi’s and you “respectfully” ask me to leave my guns out of your stores, I’ll certainly comply. But, since my guns are attached to me, that will also keep me out of your stores. Great business model. You must have been taught by the imbecilic Neanderthals teaching business in idiot American “colleges.”

And if you’re Kellogg’s and you declare me your enemy, I’ll most certainly stop doing business with you. I wouldn’t want to fund my own destruction, would I?

One thing’s for sure: If either one of my heirs wants to pursue a business education, I’ll make sure to send them to a foreign university, because I’d like for them to succeed. And there’s fuck all of a chance that they will if they “learn” from the retards teaching in this country.

Thatisall.

    Disgusted snort.

    I always get caught short on these things because they’re always done by companies that I can’t say “Well, you’ll never get one of my dollars again!” because I didn’t buy from them in the first place. Dammit.

    I don’t buy commercial cereal and haven’t in decades. (I make my own grape nuts and similar, from recipe.)

    I’ve never been in a Levi Strauss store. I didn’t even know they had “Levi Strauss” retail stores. And I’ve been wearing khakis and cargo pants for forever now, so I haven’t bought a pair of Levis in a couple of decades.

    I can’t buycott Ben & Jerry’s for their anti-gun stance because I’ve always considered them to be overpriced, under portioned, pretentious crap. (That and I’m a Texican: we eat real ice cream: Blue Bell’s.)

    I’ve been uncoupled from TV and cable for a long time now: our TV is used for netfliks and the occasional DVD, and YouTube. I haven’t watched network TV in twenty years, and haven’t subscribed to a cable network in fifteen. (I used to have a TV and radio tuner card in my workstation when I was running RFI, just so I could do spot checks on mainstream news on occasion.)

    I haven’t financially contributed to a Proggie author in years. If I want to read something published by Tor by one of the very, very few authors I still enjoy there, I hit the used bookstore or a bitstream. (Or I go Ruuski, comrade.) I’ve even Byrnestole a few times.

    I can’t boycott Marvel comics over their having been SJW converged, because I quit buying comics in the early 90s. (Can’t and won’t boycott Marvel Entertainment because they’re one of the only places making entertaining movies these days.)

    So… I’m kinda just about useless for supporting any kind of a Right Wing boycott effort.

    Le sigh.

    How about Great American Spice Company? That’s where I get most of my cooking spices and bulk stuff.

    Isn’t Kellogg’s a publicly traded company? perhaps, instead of a boycott, it’s time for a shareholder revolt instead? Remove the moron’s from their positions instead?

    Meh! I would have no effect on Kellogs, have not bought their products in 30 or more years. Nothing wrong with Quaker Oats so far (unless Pepsico does something stupid that is). Probably own stock, most retirement funds do.

    I saw that and thought it was odd they wanted to piss off half their potential customer base.

    Oh well, if they don’t want my business I’m okay with that.

    But, but, but, but Ninny Peloseri et al. say they must be in it to Pay Their Fair Share™ to her et al. so yes she et al. can spread the money around because that’s “good for everybody,” including the “500 million [sic] Americans [who will otherwise] lose their jobs”! …or something like that.

    I need a half dozen aspirins now.

    If your sons want to learn business Misha…and this is a no shit fact: Send them to or find them a job in Hong Kong.

    That is the centre of business and they will learn from the best.
