        I worked at a sporting goods store that sold guns and athletic apparel during the Colin Kaepernick/Nike deal, and the amount of people coming in to BUY Nike clothing and some ammo to shoot it with…

        I wonder if it ever clicked for any of them that they’re still buying Nike and more importantly, they’re giving free advertising every time they upload a video to facebook to show all their buddies how they owned the libs today.

      Anheuser-Busch still dominated the market last year and remains the largest beer company in the world. These bigots don’t have the power they think they do.

        I work at a restaurant. I had a customer last month talking about how he won’t drink Bud Light anymore, as he asked me for a Busch Light.

          This is both sad and funny. I would be very tempted to explain this to him and then offer a Michelob instead. Or a Stella Artois on the house.

      My dad stopped drinking Bud Lite. “Will never touch it again.”

      Switched to Busch products…

    We are not in serious trouble. No one trying to “cancel” her was a fan of hers to begin with.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    The country legend, also affectionately known as “The iron butterfly,” “The Smoky Mountain songbird” and “The backwoods Barbie,” among other priceless nicknames, has a blockbuster career that spans more than half a century and boasts more than 100 million records sold globally.

    As the country has sharply split along primary red and blue lines with nearly every public figure choosing sides, Parton has long remained the last standing vibrant purple.

    The California gays and the Alabama hillbillies alike planned getaways to Dollywood, Parton’s Pigeon Forge, Tennessee based theme park.

    Which also made her the last standing whispers of a centrist, united America I long joked — and worried — that Parton was the canary in the coal mine and when they came for her, all hope was officially lost.

    As long as Dolly Patron remained cheerful and unscathed, I surmised that America had a chance at overcoming its challenges and moving forward as a united nation.

    But now, with the arrows aimed at Parton, all I feel is existential dread (and I also hear the lyrics to “Jolene” playing on a loop in my weary head — why is it so dang catchy?!
