    Call your bluff, that's what. It's a strategy that's been working wonders against Trump's policy goals so far. Go ahead, stop watching Football. Sucks for you.

    Trump should tweet this, give him some great advertising for free and promote the decision.

    God Bless Mr. Jones.

    And the middle of America get's a deeper color of red. Your racist, uneducated, deplorable idiots and don't understand the awesomeness of hating your country!

    So the democrat platform in 2020 is going to be...

    Kneel during the anthem.
    White people are racist.
    Conservative women only vote because a man told them how to.
    God is dead.
    Abortion is caring.
    Government knows better than you what you need in healthcare.
    Communism isn't so bad.
    Democratic socialism isn't like Venezuela, Seriously. Way different.
    When it snows, rains, get's hot, get's cold, wind blows, wind doesn't blow or whatever it looks like outside is global warming. And the solution is your tax rates are too low.
    Tax cuts make people poor.
    The rich are killing you.
    That guy that give you a job is a racist and ripping you off.
    Only one kind of life matters, and you know if you aren't in that group.
    Illegals are just like you.
    Not wanting illegals here is racist. Of course everything is racist.
    You're just too dumb to understand how all of the above is actually better for you.

    Why do you think Jones did this? His company is failing, and a publicity stunt is probably the only way to keep the doors open through Christmas.

    Talk to Target.

    "The swift and fierce blow-back from consumers against the company's liberal activism hit the company – hard. Business Insider reports:

    The boycott cost the company millions in lost sales and added expenses. Shopper traffic and same-store sales started sliding for the first time in years after the blog post, and the company was forced to spend $20 million installing single-occupancy bathrooms in all its stores to give critics of the policy more privacy.

    [...]

    Sales fell nearly 6% in the three quarters after the post compared with the same period last year, and same-store sales have dropped every quarter since the post.

    A petition rebuking Target's new policy was signed by over 1.4 million people, who accused the retail giant of putting women and children at risk in order to promote their liberal agenda.

    The anti-Target movement gained even more momentum in large part due to corporate watchdog group 2ndVote. The conservative group launched an #AnywhereButTARGET campaign in November, asking conservatives to cast their second vote with their wallets by abstaining from the store."

    Conservatives Boycotted Target After Trans Bathroom Policy Stunt. That Boycott Cost Target BIGLY.

    They filed for bankruptcy and were purchased by a greasy loan shark for nothing. That doesn't scream success.

    The suit company?

    He bought it in bankruptcy a few years ago, for pennies (relatively). It's been failing for decades.

    My son is at Walmart and he called me to ask me if I wanted something.

    I told him to get soup, but not Campbell's Soup.

    Eventually, these companies are going to notice.

    But I may send them an email to speed up the process of them catching on that shitting on the American flag is bad for business.

    Are you rubes boycotting these hundreds of stores too? Toys R Us files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, stores closing after holidays?


    All closing in 2018. Note that Target is not in the article. Comparatively, a 6% loss is fantastic.
