What’s More American than
Coke and Baseball?

Original Article

Posted By: Judy W., 4/4/2021 4:35:03 AM

Until very recently, it would have been hard to imagine anything more iconic of American life than Coca Cola and baseball. Today both remind me of Benito Mussolini’s corporatist – aka, fascist -- game of merging of state and corporate power. The CEOs of these operations should hang their heads in shame and fire their public-relations teams. So should the CEOs of Delta and American Airlines, Black Rock, Cisco, American Express, and American Airlines, who have promoted President Biden’s false assertions that tightening election procedures to bring them back into line -- and in accord with those of civilized Western governments elsewhere -- is racist voter suppression.

"-- and in accord with those of civilized Western governments elsewhere -- ". When your goal is communist China, Russia, Venezuela or Cuba, who cares about "civilized Western governments?

Any great idea, concept, program, theology, religion, spiritual notion, product, nation, etc can and will be ruined by man. It's almost like a life cycle. It is not hard to boycott these two products, but also try and add Delta and American Airlines.

Once again, throwing everybody into the same pot produces erroneous beliefs. We tend to do it with politicians, other races, hobbies, books, foods, nearly everything. I despise all carbonated soft drinks and can't remember the last time I drank a coke. The only MLB game I have ever seen was in Toronto and the ticket was bought by a corporation for which I worked. Okay, I do like Apple Pie.

I agree enthusiastically with Clarice: "As an aside, I abhor the corporate use of the term “stakeholders” to cover the reality of partisan pressure. Corporate officials are by law required to consider the interests of shareholders and it seems to me they are not doing so in this case." Brian Kemp's words are impressive as well. Let's just hope his words are backed up by resolve, and not just Lindsey Graham-style grandstanding.

Companies evolve as they age. When Companies are born, the creator of the company is usually its CEO and they act in their interests. Lindell, for example. As companies age, the next generation may not be interested, nor as invested, or able and the leadership moves into the hands of other people. Because money and continued success is in the owners/stockholders' interests, Leadership usually falls into the hands of those people who promise, "to keep it safe from government". Take Disney for this example. Such leadership ALWAYS does their job using camouflage - act like or be like servants to those you fear - government tyranny won't damage a "golden goose" unless its acting against them. And that's where Democrats come in. They cheat, they always hold grudges, and they act just like mafia, squeezing and harming those who oppose their interests and benefiting those who advance their interests. Republicans, when in power, rarely hold grudges or harm what works, so who do you THINK have always controlled the big corporations? Regular people don't like to be involved with things beyond their friends, family, and day to day business. They don't seek power, only self success. They don't wantonly harm their neighbors, though they will defend themselves from harm. People who seek out politics as their career are different. Power for themselves ALWAYS comes first. Until Americans can take the country back from these people and minimize their future influence this "Bravo Sierra" is just going to repeat, generation after generation.

It is time to end baseball's antitrust exemption granted by the US Supreme Court in 1922. In fact, it is time to end the exemptions given any professional sports. A century ago they were small potatoes as business, the games dismissed as "exhibitions". Today they are global mega-business in an environment no one saw 100 years ago. As for Delta and American, I generally refuse to fly either on the basis of "merit". Once among my preferred carriers, both these airlines now are poor performers in my book. I much prefer almost anyone else, and those would include Dogpatch Airlines...but not Spirit!

Our Constitution and Bill of Rights, that’s America. I love baseball, but I don’t need MLB to enjoy it. I love a good cola, but I don’t need Coke to enjoy one. I need my rights to be upheld and not watered down or removed by some old man’s puppet master. I don’t like boycotts. If I stop buying a product, it stays that way. I don’t believe in extortion. I’ll find something else or do without. If enough of us do this, perhaps the Woke will really awaken, but I doubt it.

Boycotting won't work. The reason Coke and Delta and MLB are complicit is because of all the revenue and benefits bestowed upon them by the Federal Gov't. It is called coercion and FACISM.

I don't need a liquid conduit to get a quarter of a cup of sugar into my body, so I gave up Coca-Cola years ago. Coke will be reduced to memorabilia sales and the flaking paint of old signs on buildings if they keep up their lunacy. MLB is as boring as paint drying and I can't name a single person on my local team. Just when a "star" settles in, he is traded for two minor leaguers and a future draft pick. I never cared for the NBA and the NFL ran me off with their kneeling, disrespectful ways. MLB has made the parting of ways with professional sports complete. Seeing them eat their own by making a franchise city and facility suffer is the most ridiculous thing I've seen in a while.

A Soviet television adaptation of The Lord of the Rings thought to have been lost to time was rediscovered and posted on YouTube last week, delighting Russian-language fans of JRR Tolkien. The 1991 made-for-TV film, Khraniteli, based on Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring, is the only adaptation of his Lord of the Rings trilogy believed to have been made in the Soviet Union. Aired 10 years before the release of the first instalment of Peter Jackson’s movie trilogy, the low-budget film appears ripped from another age: the costumes and sets are rudimentary, the special effects are ludicrous, and many of the scenes look more like a theatre production than a feature-

South Dakota governor Kristi Noem transitioned — at sprinting speed — from Miss Thing to Miss Nothing. On March 8, Gov. Noem expressed joy over a bill passed by the South Dakota Legislature, which would have banned males from women's sports. Then, on March 19, she "returned" the text to the Legislature requesting changes that undid the basic purpose of the bill. Her office issued a Shakespearean press release (except far less interesting than Hamlet's soliloquies), doddering to explain her veto. (Snip) However it's couched, she sank a key bill opposing the imposition of transgenderism on people whom it could harm. And the conservative world finally erupted.

This week, traditional Jews and Christians celebrate special acts of God in human history. Yet, polling data now show that an increasing number of young people, including those from religious homes, doubt even the existence of God. Moreover, polls probing such young “religiously unaffiliated agnostics and atheists” have found that science — or at least the claims of putative spokesmen for science — have played an outsized sole in cementing disaffection with religious belief. In one, more than two-thirds of self-described atheists, and one-third of agnostics, affirm “the findings of science make the existence of God less probable.”

The court’s decision is the first of its kind, and establishes a needed boundary against American culture’s new, brutish sexual orthodoxy.

Who will lead the deplorables’ exodus from the bondage that the political-corporate-cultural oligarchy imposes on America? The power that the oligarchy has gathered since 2015 pales by comparison with the resentment it created thereby, and the wave of public opinion that is building against it. America’s deplorables, clingers, irredeemables, chumps, dregs, neanderthals, etc.—persecuted, increasingly prosecuted for being on the wrong side of the oligarchy—yearn for political leaders to rescue their way of life. Demand is so high because most self-proclaimed conservative leaders talk the voters’ talk, but walk the big donors’ oligarchic walk.
