Seems like the new marketing avenue is to attach your company to something political to get attention.
^^^^^^^^^^^^ I do not think it is new, but it is certainly repulsive as far as I am concerned. Using the American flag to sell products annoys me as well. It is not for patriotic reasons, but for commercial purposes.

The last time I was in Walmart (which was the LAS TIME I ever enter Walmart) they were playing diversity and tolerance horseshit announcements on the PA system. I was down to only buying their cheap cat litter anyway. I can get crappy service and bad attitudes anywhere.

I don't see 'wokeness' going away anytime soon. Wondering just how long can this last.
__________________________ Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger

I'm wondering if you sent them a email or letter with your honest concerns, what they would do.
Especially if you asked them "do you feel George Floyds life, a criminal who was on fentanyl, is more important than the little 5 year old boy recently murdered? Because you talk about Floyd but not innocent 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant. Why is that?
I sent them a short, to the point email. I told the I loved their products but it is a bad idea to mix business and politics. I will no longer buy their socks due to their support of the Marxist attack on our country. It’s been a week. Crickets. They do not care. Get woke, go broke.

I was a big Best Buy customer and fan, but I got an e-mail from them with similar crappe flowing. I immediately became a former Best Buy customer and unsubscribed from their e-mails. Another of the many companies that have become dead to me due to their wokeness.

Ever been to Vermont?? It's a beautiful state. But after you're there awhile you realize they are very anti big business and commerce is pretty much Mom& Pop type stores. Which is fine if you don't mind paying outrageous prices for things like food. I was there and asked where a Costco was. Guy laughed and said everyone shops in New Hampshire. Sure enough we had to go to N.H. to any kind of decent shopping. It's a weird state. You get tired of all the "natural" crap after awhile. The state doesn't seem to want anything new there. But they sure don't mind taxing the public. Very high taxes. Stay away from Vermont.

Besides the Vermont attitude towards big business that you described, that's also because NH doesn't have sales tax. So everyone from Vermont, southwestern Maine, and northern Massachussets drives over to New Hampshire for their big shopping trips. The borders just inside NH are littered with big shopping malls, strips malls, and outlet malls.
Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.” – Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778
