Morning Consult Poll: Corporations That Dabble In SJW Politicking Against NRA Lose Public Approval

It's almost as if the blue state liberals running the middle management of these companies thinks that all of America is liberal like them and thinks that their FaceBook feeds and Twitter timelines represent overall American thought.

And it's almost like they don't even bother asking if it's good for the company to take sides in the Last Culture War-- like they are willing to see their company lose money if it means they can do a good turn for The Cause.

I had virtually the same argument with a lefty on a non-political forum.

"CEOs are overpaid! Plus, their role is to provide good jobs, an open and inviting work environment, using good environmentally friendly processes to provide social benefits."

"Errrrr, I noticed that the word 'profit' wasn't included...."

I went on to explain that a CEO's job is to increase shareholder value. Nothing more, nothing less. And that it was up to the shareholders to decide what makes up shareholder value. It might include all of those things that he cited, it might include more sane factors like profitability, market capitalization and dividend income, but that's the shareholders' decision to make.

251 Anybody wondering the motives of Cruz for the shooting (besides his anger issues and mental imbalance) take a look at his situation now.

He's housed and clothed with no worries about being berated by anyone or told what to do by his step mom or anything.

He's got the full attention of everyone he comes in contact of.

Any thing he wants or needs (except being let go) will be most likely be given.

He's in heaven right now (to him) I'd bet even he didn't think this would be the result.

He sure was calm and cool that day. Walked in fired off rounds and then left the guns (did he?) and walked out and went to a McD's.

Almost like he knew what the routine would be and that he had time for a quick snack.

Note how many cops it took to arrest him.

There is so much fail here. And the Media should be getting slammed for making this incident and the perp so famous and almost glorifying.

283 DALTON, Ga. (WATE) --
A teacher at Dalton High School in Dalton, Georgia is in custody after police a shot was fired on Wednesday morning at a classroom in the school. No students were hurt.

Dalton police said students tried to enter the teacher's room and he wouldn't let them in. When the principal came to talk to the teacher, the teacher forced the door closed. When the principal took out his key to open the door, the principal heard a gunshot. At that point, the school was locked down.

The teacher was taken into custody just before 12:30 p.m., according to Dalton police.

All of the students were evacuated from the high school and are being taken to the Northeast Georgia Trade Center to be reunited with their parents.

A student suffered an ankle injury while running from the school, according to Bruce Frazier with Dalton police.

Sequence of events seems to be:

Teacher would not let students in classroom.
Students call the principal.
Principal goes to unlock the door.
Then a shot is heard. (repeat: shot fired AFTER teacher barricaded self in room )
Principal puts school in lockdown
Police are called, arrive at school, and take teacher into custody.
Only know injury is student turning an ankle while running.

My husband drives an older Volvo S40, and when they had construction on the highways near his work, he had 3 flat tires in about 6 weeks. The first time, it took him, like, 3 hours to get the tire changed. The second time, he got a friend to drive him to Walmart and got a decent hydraulic jack and then fixed the tire. He has it in the trunk, just in case.

320 You have to look at the education (at primary and secondary level) these "astute" business-people have. A great deal of our societal problems today result from NEA having had a free hand in the schools for decades. And that, of course, was made possible by the education-by-government to which we submitted sometime way back in the 19th Century.

Education is a classic service enterprise that has no business in the government sector. Almost impossible to think of a problem with today's education that wouldn't be fixed almost immediately by relegating education to the private sector. And that - IMO - includes school shootings; if School A protects its students better than competing School B, which is going to succeed, and which will be in Bankruptcy Court?

These people know what they're doing, and we still don't get it. Maybe Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump get it; hope they can do something, but it's probably far too late.

Then some 9mm.

All before I bought any firearms because Barry was driving the ammo into scarcity I figured it was like investing in the stock market. At the prices I bought at, I could've sold for more during the drought but when I bought my guns I decided to just store it. In case for later.

332 "My husband drives an older Volvo S40, and when they had construction on the highways near his work, he had 3 flat tires in about 6 weeks. The first time, it took him, like, 3 hours to get the tire changed. The second time, he got a friend to drive him to Walmart and got a decent hydraulic jack and then fixed the tire. He has it in the trunk, just in case."

Last summer Little VIA was driving our Volvo S-60 and hit a pothole. Wound up with a flat tire, which is not uncommon in Baltimore County due to the current Democrat who is the County Executive not doing shit about roads.

So he calls me on the cell to let me know that he has a flat, and would be a little late.

And then promptly changed the tire from start to finish on his own.
Then drove home.

I think I've told the story about how I went out one night to run to the store and it was cold and sleet/rain/ice and nasty and I had a flat tire and I went to get the jack and realized that I, an independent, strong, self-actualized woman, had AAA for the express purpose of making them do it.

When the AAA guy got there, he was TICKED. Not at me, but at the guys who put on the tire. It took both of us more or less hanging off about 10 feet of rod to get the lug nuts to move they had been impact wrenched on so tight. He went on and on about how what if I was out by the side of the road with no cell service and couldn't get the tire off the rim, which there is no way I would have been able to do that, and he gave me his card to call if I ever had problems. Sweetheart of a guy.

Once he got the not crappy jack, he can change a tire in, like, 20 minutes. And, unfortunately, has to. The bad stretch of tires was when we were in Houston for his training, but now back in Dallas, the roads are still terrible.

Which is why all auto users, and especially new drivers, should practice doing a tire change at home in the driveway. So they know what to expect. If the jack and lug wrench are crap, throw them away, and buy more substantial ones from an auto supply store, even if that sacrifices a little trunk space.

Also know where not to change a tire, like on the shoulder of a freeway, for instance.

had been impact wrenched on so tight. He went on and on about how what
if I was out by the side of the road with no cell service and couldn't
get the tire off the rim, which there is no way I would have been able
to do that, and he gave me his card to call if I ever had problems.

Any air impact wrench I have owned, I would not trust to get lug nuts tight enough. I generally use a torque wrench, swung by hand, to ensure the wheels are properly fitted.

Many times, "over-tightening with impact wrench" gets blamed, when "lug nut seized by corrosion in threads" is the real culprit.

The only way I see Mueller as "stand up" is if he decided the coup and all the NWO peeps have gone too far, and he got some sort of immunity deal to actually work for the white hats.

MAYBE Sessions/Gowdy know that, so want to give him room to operate. But that seems more and more unlikely by the day. More likely the Mueller mob is going to threaten anyone that dares get in DeepState's way.

Manafort .. is he left holding the bag, or will he be given immunity to tell Mueller lies to entrap Kushner/Trump whomever? idk, but just the fact the DeepState unconstitutional inquisition continues shows there is trouble in the castle.

412 So a GOP congressman expresses outrage at Oakland mayor's despicable "heads up" to illegals over planned ICE detentions, notes how much federal $$$ goes to that city.


Hmmm. Wouldn't it be cool if, like, Congress had the ability to condition federal $$$ to lawless jurisdictions on, say, their cooperation with federal law enforcement? Since, for decades, federal $$$ for dozens of far less important things have been strictly conditioned on a lengthening list of hoop-jumps states and cities must perform to get the loot? I mean, you could even put it in had appropriations language, require DOJ and DHS to certify cooperation to release the $$$ (as has been done with countless kinds of federal spending, for decades).


Yeah crazy but work with me here, what if we had something like an executive that could veto, jaw-bone, and politicize the matter - since such things would be overwhelmingly popular, since "sanctuary" lawlessness is wildly unpopular. Such an executive might even threaten to not sign any more CRs, vs. specific appropriations bills, so the issue could be isolated and the bejeesus pounded and politicized out of it.


Well, all a complete fantasy, I know, but something, some day, that we might work towards.

457 Would it be worth conducting an active boycott of some of these companies? By active I mean big, noisy picket lines in front of their retail locations. If this scares away customers it helps us drive home our message to those running these businesses. Or, would it be counter-productive like the left's Chick-fil-A boycott? If we try it we want it to work.
Maybe pick out just one of these companies to start with. One with the weakest financials and the most competition.

458 170 Well, you can get a lot more velocity, and range, from a catapult. So, there's that.

Wrong. Seen the trebuchet special on TV where there are two of them chucking basketball-sized rocks 800 ft and smashing a 10-foot thick stone wall? No catapult can do that, unless it is high tech. These bad boys were made with hand tools and woven fiber ropes.

459 Goodbye, Dick, and don't make the mistake of thinking we will forget your gutless sellout of the Second Amendment.
