Boycott A La Carte? Fatuous Facebook Trump-Foes!
We often recommend boycotts. They can be an effective method of protest, if enough people join in.
At the same time, boycotting should not be an exercise in masochism.
For example, if you are desperately thirsty, out on one of our extremely hot Jakarta arvos, with only one vendor handy, and he’s only offering Budweiser, it would be silly not to slake your thirst, even though Budweiser does not deserve your custom.
Keeling over on a broken Jakarta pavement due to dehydration is not a wise way to advance one’s cause. Boycotting is meant to hurt the target, not yourself.
Similarly, Starbucks should be avoided for all manner of good reasons, not only their campaign for the ghastly absurdity of ‘gay’ marriage…
…but now also for their anti-Trump antics, declaring they’ll recruit 10,000 ‘refugees’ – no mention of hiring 10,000 deserving vets, please note.
But if you can derive some benefit from Starbucks – as I did this very week, occupying one of their chairs outside one of their branches, no coffee ordered, just sitting there, with a book and a cigarette…
…thus by mere inertia preventing potential paying customers from contributing to the company’s coffers!
No doubt more creative conservatives can think of other tactics and strategies.
Good thinking, Boy Wonder!
So what are we to make of the fatuous Facebook dorks, collective knickers in a twist about President Trump’s executive orders.
They have taken a pledge to either refrain from flying over the next few months, or at least travel by air less often…. http://dailycaller.com/2017/02/04/facebook-employees-are-boycotting-flying-over-trumps-immigration-ban/
There are a few options for the boycott, including reducing one’s flying by 10 percent, moving or canceling one planned trip, or abstaining all together
Now this is NOT work-related flights we’re talking about. You fly if your boss tells you to.
This is their own leisure travel!.
What they’re saying is like saying I’m pledging not to eat meat – or at least just eat steak!
Or maybe just a sausage roll or two every Sunday morn!
It’s a bit like Porkahontas, the chubby-cheeked Red Indian in Canada who went on hunger-strike…
…but somehow reconciled her self-sacrifice with daily helpings of yummy broth!
Those Facebook fanatics’ language is hilarious!
Duncan, C-i-C of the Ragtags!
Get this, from chief FB pinko, Regina Dugan, Vice President of Engineering at Facebook-
“Last Sunday, I felt heartbroken.”
Aww! Did Little Regina drop her ice-cream cone?
“…I decided that I had to do something.”
Yeah, Regina, fly around the world a little less frequently!
What self-sacrifice in the cause!
“Before I knew it, a small rag tag team of citizen coders had formed.”
On a V-P’s salary?
Calvin Klein, or DKNY, more like!
What a load of hogwash!
