On the Google blacklist

Featured image A reader alerted us to our disappearance from Google searches yesterday morning. I confirmed this myself with searches on my own posts. By the time I asked our publisher to confirm our disappearance, the same searches I had run included my posts at the top. I wondered what was going on. Mediaite’s Rudy Takala reports on the issue in “Ex-Google Engineer Says Glitch Blocking Websites Including Drudge, Breitbart Could Have »

Was it something he said?

Featured image Minnesota’s MyPillow man Mike Lindell joined President Trump and chief executive officers Darius Adamczyk (Honeywell), Debra Waller (Jockey — great!), Greg Hayes (United Technologies), and David Taylor (Proctor and Gamble) at yesterday’s daily White House Coronavirus task force briefing.

Nike, an Anti-American Company

Featured image After the U.S. killed arch-terrorist Qasem Soleimani, ex-quarterback Colin Kaepernick took to Twitter to express his opinions: There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism. — Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) January 4, 2020 America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad.

This strikes me as an unforced error and a terrible business decision. Chick-fil-A is the country’s fastest-growing and arguably most successful fast-food company. Its fanatical customer loyalty is undoubtedly fueled in part by the company’s open patriotism and its refusal »

Kowtowing, NBA style

Featured image I learn from the 10-point guide to today’s Wall Street Journal by Matt Murray that “The NBA’s carefully plotted strategic emphasis on China was jolted off course by a tweet Friday night” (WSJ story posted here).

Thoughts from the ammo line

Featured image Ammo Grrrll waves BYE BYE, WALMART, BYE BYE. She writes: Et tu, Walmart? Seriously? Do you have no idea who your customer base is? Well, whatever. I’m done. It’s a shame, too, because Walmart is the definite Big Dog shopping emporium in our Dusty Little Village. For groceries, I have two other choices in town, one of which I have always preferred anyway: Bashas. It is a pleasant, to-scale kind »

Scenes From a Starbucks

Featured image Starbucks is one of America’s growing cadre of “woke” companies. Now that one need not be a customer to hang out in a Starbucks store, the inevitable consequences are beginning to appear. These observations were penned by a friend of mine: When I quit smoking, coffee replaced cigarettes and I’ve been frequenting a Starbucks in downtown Minneapolis twice a day since November, 2017. One day in March 2018, I couldn’t. »
