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.
