The Morning Rant: Middle School Edition

[Punk Monkey is having his studs polished and his anal glands expressed, and will be back after Independence Day]

Take a look below the fold and you will see what has me quite exercised this fine day. I am sick and fvcking tired of corporations sticking their toes and noses into the political waters of this country. Do they have that right? Of course. But I cannot think of a single company that has managed to navigate those waters without pissing off some segment of their customer base. Sure, Chick-Fil-A manages pretty well, but my guess is that they would prefer not to be in the spotlight and simply do what they do best...make chicken sandwiches.

So when I get my regular notice from Harry's Shaving that they will be sending my order in the next few days, I don't want LGBTQBBQHAH crap shoved in my face. All I want is a damned razor refill. Is that too much to ask? Because while you make good razors, you certainly aren't the only game in town, and you pissing me off and pissing away money on crap videos and graphics on your website instead of keeping my costs down is not making me feel all warm and fuzzy about your company. I already put off shaving my late spring beard, so giving me less incentive to use your products doesn't make much financial sense.

And exactly what segment of the population are you trying to attract? I guess your plan is to shrink your customer base but make the remaining ones...special? Virtuous? Maybe that will pay off, but the laws of economics are not to be trifled with.

It's a razor. It doesn't mean anything. It doesn't signal virtue, it doesn't work for world peace. It cuts hair. That's it. So stop pandering to the professional homosexuals, who are a subset of the progressive movement in America, and start paying more attention to your customer base's needs. And that would be shaving, nothing else.

And another thing...this seems to be an insult to most (non-professional homosexual) gay people, who are pretty much just like everyone else, and probably worry about 8,000 other things in their lives before they think about using an LGBTQBBQHAH razor.

And one more thing! Shocking as it may seem, there exists in America a population of gay people who support Donald Trump and his policies. For instance, his policy of marginalizing Iran? The country that takes great pride (SWIDT?) in hanging homosexuals. Obama didn't seem to care about that...huh?

[Obligatory warning: this is not an anti-gay screed. This is an anti leftist-politics screed. Please don't abuse the privilege of commenting here]
