Virtue-signalling and reality: A lesson for business

Seems even big virtue-signalling companies can’t escape basic rules of economics. Breitbart reports:

Quote:Starbucks has announced that it will close 150 locations in some of the nation?s big cities to get ahead of its worst growth performance in nine years. But the company also admitted it is racing to blunt the effect of cities with higher minimum wages and other business-killing regulations.

[…]With new CEO Kevin Johnson beginning to make his mark on the coffee giant, the closures will hit corporate-owned locations mostly in densely populated areas in the U.S., meaning that the old joke that there is a Starbucks on every corner in America?s biggest cities may become a thing of the past.

Being Conservative used to be boring and the establishment but now Progressive, Left-wing politically correct views are the establishment and being Libertarian or Conservative has become edgy and cool.

Singer Joy Villa turned heads when she revealed her less than subtle gown at the Grammys.

 

?Go big, or go home. You can either stand for what you believe or fall for what you don?t. Above all make a choice for tolerance and love. Agree to disagree.

Facts versus feelings: A case study

through-rose-tinted-glasses

through-rose-tinted-glasses

A progressive liberal who grew up in a conservative household allowed his curiosity to open him up to new ideas. Instead of sticking to liberal dogma he started reading and watching things that exposed him to another way of viewing what was happening in America.The fact-based arguments were changing his attitudes but they made him feel uncomfortable. He didn’t like viewing the world that way and thought that he had become an ” arsehole. ” He didn’t want to be an ” arsehole, ” so he put his rose tinted glasses back on so that he could feel like a good person.

He retreated to a world dominated by feelings. The only way he could live with his regression was to view the facts and the logical persuasive arguments in a negative light. Amazingly in his article about his 180 degree turnaround he chose to label the other side ” indoctrination” and “online radicalisation.”

He reminds me of someone I knew who was constantly used as a doormat by others. I told her what she had to do to protect herself but she wasn’t prepared to do it because she would feel like a bad person. It is amazing how much people will put up with and ignore in order to preserve their image of themselves as a good person.

Imagine the scene in the schoolyard. The bully grabs the scrawny new kid and hits him repeatedly. When he asks why the bully is picking on him he replies, ” You are helping Kevin with his homework. You have to stop doing that because he refuses to give me his lunch money and is making me look weak” The new kid is puzzled. ” But I only help him with French,” he replies ” Why aren’t you kicking John and Alan who are the senior students that tutor him for all his other subjects and also help him train for sports? ” “What do you take me for? Have you seen the size of Alan and John? ?I need to send a message to the other kids not to mess with me and you’re that message kid.”

In the news right now the scrawny new kid is online retailer My Food Bag who is being pressured by the PSA Union to end its relationship with its frozen?pea supplier, Talley?s.

New Ghostbusters movie

New Ghostbusters movie

Both my children are eagerly looking forward to the new Ghostbusters movie. ?I really enjoyed the original so went on to YouTube to look at the trailer. One of the main characters is an actress I really like, Melissa McCarthy so I had high hopes that it would be good.

This funny image about red heads got me thinking. How many other words do we use inaccurately? I have used words to describe political parties where I did not really understand the full meaning of the labels I was using.

Being Trans Gender is cool but not if you identify with being a White Male

PHOTO- genderidentitywatch.com

In today’s world we have even more labels for people to define themselves. The latest one is Transgender.

Transgender people experience a mismatch between their gender identity or gender expression and their assigned sexTransgender is also an umbrella term because, in addition to including trans men and trans women whose binary gender identity is the opposite of their assigned sex (and who are sometimes specifically termed transsexual if they desire medical assistance to transition), it may include genderqueer people (whose identities are not exclusively masculine or feminine, but may, for example, be bigender, pangender or agender).Other definitions include third-gender people as transgender or conceptualize transgender people as a third gender,and infrequently the term is defined very broadly to include cross-dressers.

…Being transgender is independent of sexual orientation; transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual,bisexual, asexual, etc., or may consider conventional sexual orientation labels inadequate or inapplicable.

-wiki

Universities and other places of tertiary learning are usually very big on diversity and acceptance of every shade of gender or colour under the sun. But in a hilarious twist a woman who is Trans gender is being attacked and is experiencing prejudice because she identifies with being a white male. It seems that despite all the ‘ enlightenment ‘ there is one gender and race it is still not okay to be.
