Black Rifle Coffee Company

I followed a link on Vox’s page and read an article at Breitbart about Keurig dropping their advertising from Hannity because of his interview with Judge Moore from Alabama and it mentioned a coffee company run by veterans called Black Rifle Coffee Company.  One of their mottos is “Make Coffee Great Again” so you can guess which side of the fence they’re on.

Well, that got me thinking.  Currently I drink Pete’s Coffee and they’re a West Coast company and I’d bet my last doubloon that they’re as left wing as The NY Times.  I thought, why don’t I put my money where my mouth is?  So, I’ve joined Black Rifle’s coffee club.  Now this is a big move.  I drink a whole lot of coffee.  Camera Girl cold brews a quart of coffee every morning and then sends that with me the next morning in a thermos (hot of course).  This thermos keeps me alive and producing engineering at an industrial scale.  If my coffee fails me it might cause a rift in the space/time continuum serious enough to destroy all life as we know it or at least get me fired for falling asleep at my desk.  But I want to do my part for the cause.  I have now sworn off lefty coffee for life.  Add that to the NFL, The Simpsons, almost all Hollywood movies and television shows and the Dixie Chicks (actually that one was easy, they suck).  Let’s just call this my first foray into virtue signaling.  Actually, now I see why they do it.  It’s fun sticking your thumb in the eye of The Man (well girly man anyway).

I really think it’s time for someone to start putting together a comprehensive list of conservative alternatives to lefty products and services (and companies that invariably cave to lefty pressure).  I’d love to pass along cash to right wing folks who make stuff that I need to buy anyway.  Something like an Amazon Associates program for right wing stuff would be fantastic.  But of course, without the Bezos bias thrown in. If any of you folks have any suggestions for conservative alternatives for everyday (or special) commerce items please share them here.  It’ll take years to put a dent into the Google/Amazon/Facebook military industrial complex but as the Chinese say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  Well, at least I think that’s what they’re saying, some of the r’s and l’s might have been dropped and I was crunching the crunchy noodles so I might have misunderstood.  Actually I think what he said was “please pay the bill and get out right away because we have a party of 24 and need to combine this table with a lot of other tables to form one big table.”

Well wish me luck.  This is serious business.  Without good coffee my existence would be a hollow mockery of living.  I would wander aimlessly from my desk to the cafeteria staring at the carafes of pencil shaving infused battery acid that they call coffee there and wondering how I managed to pass right through the gates of hell without noticing the inscription.

 

Since my readers don’t always stop by every day I figured I’d paste this poll on each post for a while to see what folks call themselves.  This is the post the poll came from  Who Are We?

… And that got me thinking. Who are the people who read my blog?  I thought it might be fun to see what the cross-section looked like.  If you feel like saying what you believe in, feel free to leave a comment and/or pick a label from the poll below.  I think it might be interesting.

    You will like Black Rifle Coffee. I do not like coffee but my wife does and loves their product.
    Also, please go forward with your list of conservative companies to support. I’ve been asking someone to do this for years. I’d like to see it be a permanent link on your website.

    Thanks for the info on the coffee. I’d be sad to have to trade quality for politics. Now I get both! Dave, that’s a very good idea about a permanent list. I’ll put it in the forum as a separate category and try to get folks to submit finds and of course I’ll add anything I find myself. I’ll put up another post to announce it later. Good thinking!

    Well, as you know my son works for K-cup company. I read the letter issued to the employees by their CEO which was publicized. Seems someone in the company sent out a tweet without authorization regarding pulling their ads from Hannity. However, the letter also stated that they would continue to advertise on Fox because of the demographics. He also stated that tweets would be subject to much more scrutiny before being published. So, I wouldn’t fully abandon Keurig just yet. I think the person who tweeted jumped gun on suspending ads because some of the lefties contacted Keurig and whined about ads during Hannity’s show. Hard to not buy things these days online that don’t involve some liberals. At least his letter didn’t sound like some hard core leftist doubling down on their decision. Unlike the NFL he was pretty clear that they don’t want to appear to be taking sides on controversial issues. Bottom line…they want to sell coffee and brewers to everyone. Personally, I’m not a big coffee drinker and I get k-cups for free so not much for me to do. On the other hand I can easily boycott the NFL because they clearly have taken a side. And one that I don’t agree with. Cheers from the middle of nowhere on the IL/WI border.

    Well, it’s good to hear Keurig isn’t going to boycott but I’m not a Keurig user, I use Peet’s and I’m sure they’re as lefty as it gets. Plus these guys are vets and if I can boost them I’d prefer them than those Peet’s guys in Berkley California. You know they must have a special blend named for fallen antifa heroes. As if that isn’t bad enough Camera Girl sometimes sneaks in some Starbuck’s just to annoy me. Good luck out in the field. Any snow?
