When Businesses Practice Political Idealism

We have all seen it before. Some business decides that in protest of some political idealism they will no longer sell a connected product or service. The latest in a long list of bad business decisions seem to be when the manufacturers of the “Yeti” products of coolers and hot/cold cups decided to no longer sponsor some of the National Rifle Association’s activities.

Of course, that’s their decision.

But what if? What if everyone decided to base their productivity, manufacture, and creativity on some pie-in-the-sky political idealism? Or maybe they always have and none of us are even aware of it.

Think about how much different the world might have been…Or not!

Now I guess I’m the crazy one here. Unless it was a very good hoax played on me, that could be, but I tell you again, it ain’t easy for a man to make those kind of moves. That didn’t look human to me.””

As was expressed to me by a reader, the Maine Legislature is in session. These people should be at work in Augusta, not out running around the countryside.
