I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Crazy competition

Thursday, the last of my 3 days off in a row.  Then I get to go back to work for 4 days, have a day off, work for 4, have two days off, work 5 and have another 3 days off in a row.  That last 3 days just happens to be the Labor Day weekend.  Labor Day is our last big sale until Black Friday.  Holidays are very difficult to get off due to all of the 'footsteps' in the store.  Retail is all about making money.
I got a lot done yesterday... really I did.  Wacked and mowed the lawn.  Ride on the bike.  Took the dogs for a walk in the park.  Drove to Karns to by them bones (my local Giant no longer sells them).  Finished playing a video game (Dishonored 2).  The game was fun, though a little short, and as a result a little unfulfilling.  Most likely they decided to call it 2 because it was a little too long to be considered DLC.  Since it wasn't full price, I don't have a problem with that.
I saw on Bloomberg this AM that the Idiot Jerk quite often cites praise from the "anonymous business man" at his rallies.  He claims to have had dinner with this dude, and this unknown dude has told the Idiot Jerk he's doing a great job and to keep up the good work.  If this missing dude is so pleased with the Idiot Jerk, why doesn't he say so publicly, let the world know how greatly he appreciates our phony president?  The answer to that is simple.  There is no missing, unknown, anonymous, business man.  This is just another lie.  What else is new.
And I see the Colorado baker is back in court, something about his refusing to bake a cake for a transgender individual.  Taking him to court over and over again is not the answer to this problem.  He is not going to change.  Crazy Christians are going to continue to buy his cakes and keep him in business.  If you want to beat this guy, the only way to do so successfully is to start stomping on his wallet.  Some nice gay or lesbian needs to open a bakery a few blocks away, sell cakes that are just as tasty, just as beautiful, and are less expensive.  You see, one of the things about Crazy Christians is that they see money as a blessing.  The more they earn, the more they are blessed.  Holding onto that money is just as important.  This is obvious because they place so much importance on "my."  You know?  My money. My Taxes.  My Religion.  They will see a good deal on a wedding cake as a blessing and so they will go to the competition.  Sure, a few Crazies will cling to him, but they are not going to keep his income from dwindling.  As his bank account shrinks he will get angry.  He will pray for his blessings to return.  They will not.  In the end he will close his doors.  He will fail because in his beliefs "my" became so much more important that "you."  This is a really big problem for Evangelicals.


  1. the CO baker needs to serve ALL THE PEOPLE or GTFO of business. it's that simple. fuck his "sincerely held religious beliefs".

    1. The last time the courts sided with him which is why we have this mess. The only way to drive him out of business is to sell a product just as good, or better, at a lower cost.
