  • Iron Fist of Jesus Strikes Gillette

    America became Great due to the captains of industry, railroad moguls, and business tycoons that built our Great country. Often denigrated as "robber barons", they built the Big Oil, Big Coal, and all the other Bigly things that we know today.

    Among the greats came King C. Gillette, who built his fortune on the belief that all the manly men that mined the coal, built the skyscrapers, piloted the B-29's that killed the Nazi's and fought the Japs on Guadalcanal could have a clean shave. It took only one generation raised on Sesame Street with Bert and Ernie (homers), Big Bird (Bestiality), along with limp-wristed Mr. Rogers "neighborhood" to produce useless millennials and weasels like Harvard dropout Mark Zuckerberg and Gary Coombe - Gillette's present CEO at P&G.

    Not only is the present generation unhappy with the gender Jesus gave them, it makes one want to heave to call these soy boys "captains of industry". These arrogant and ungrateful little twerps are now captives of the Democrat nanny-state and feel obligated to lecture the rest of us about "toxic masculinity" - and pissing away the value of the stock in my retirement fund.

    Gary Coombe should be fired and put to work cleaning up the trash in shithole cities like Baltimore.

    Gillette Comes within a Whisker of Disaster
    August 02, 2019

    "Your stupid boycotts will never make a dent in a company like P&G," one liberal scoffed back in January. Turns out, they didn't just make a dent. After a string of male-bashing, transgender shaving ads, the parent company of Gillette got nicked so badly, market experts wonder if the brand will survive. Gillette's CEO insists the radical activism was "worth the price." Let's hope so -- because so far, that price is a whopping $8 billion dollars.

    To most customers, a razor company dabbling in gender politics never made sense in the first place. Gillette used to be "the best a man can get." Now the company can't even acknowledge what a man actually is! Things for the brand started to unravel earlier this year when P&G gave the green light to a controversial commercial about the culture's "toxic masculinity." The idea, CEO Gary Coombe said at the time, was to reach millennials. Weeks into the flop, even he admitted it backfired.

    But instead of ditching its politically-charged messages, Gillette dug in deeper. On Father's Day, the company finally went too far, launching an ad about a dad teaching his "son" -- who happens to be a biological girl -- how to shave. That did it. Conservative groups like One Million Moms activated, warning customers that unless they wanted their money to support an ideology Pediatricians call "child abuse," they'd better find another razor.

    Based on this quarter's report, an astonishing number of Americans did. "P&G reported a net loss of about $5.24 billion, or $2.12 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, due to an $8 billion non-cash writedown of Gillette. For the same period last year," Reuters explains, "P&G's net income was $1.89 billion, or 72 cents per share." At least for now, the company's executives are refusing to blame their liberal politics. Instead, CFO Jon Moeller found another culprit: Beards. That's right. P&G is actually writing off its monumental fail on the rise of facial hair. "Lower shaving frequency has reduced the size of the developed blades and razors market," he tried to justify on a call with analysts.

    Some shareholders might buy that, but most shoppers agree -- it's time for companies like Gillette to look in the mirror. Political activism never pays. Just look at the fanatics at Target and Nike, whose stocks took a nose-dive for offending Americans' basic sense of decency and patriotism. Even so, some companies are pressing forward despite the fallout. Just last month, grocery giant Whole Foods surprised everyone by sponsoring drag queen story hour. Even Nabisco's most famous cookies -- Oreo and Chips Ahoy -- have spent 2019 waving the transgender flag. But the reckoning isn't just coming. It's here.

    So the next time someone tries to tell you that shopping your values doesn't work, or one person can't possibly make a difference, remember Gillette. It only takes a handful of committed shoppers to send a message. As former Walmart CEO Bill Simon explained on "Washington Watch," the "very, very best way you can communicate your concern is with your wallet." Companies are in the business to make money.

    . . . .

    Hell's foundations quiver at the shout of praise;
    brothers, lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.
    ...and get off my lawn

    After years of silence, Gillette has finally gone public about the expected returns on its RFID investment. At the EPCglobal conference in September, the giant consumer

    I have been reluctant to use Gillette products since I heard they attach RFID chips to all their products. Under the guise of inventory control and monitoring retail activity, they chose to use a precursor of the Mark of the Beast to ensnare unsuspecting consumers, which is just a step away from saying, "You can't shave until you take the devil's ID."

    As someone concerned with privacy and as a champion of anything that defeats the evil one, I would rather purchase cheaper brands that do not use RFID technology. As a manly, intelligent, well-built, muscular, tall and handsome hirsute male, I need shaving products to prevent myself from looking like some gorilla or other furry animal, but I would rather use something that glorifies God. The Ezekiel Flint shaving system that was talked about years ago would be perfect if it ever comes about. I swear we go from one tirade to another; the airplane, shaving, Filipino pool boy costs, the lack of Sister Daisy's wedding ring, and so on. We need to stay focused.

    Wait. The shaving system was on another forum I sometimes frequent for Homers, not here. Sorry.
    Proverbs 21:31 KJV 1611:
    “The horse is prepared against the day of battell: but safetie is of the Lord.”

    Lord, may I serve my equine brothers and sisters just as I do my fellow man.
    Amen and Amen

      In the last year alone? Isn't this sort of statement, you know, testable? Like we could see if the beard fashion started in January (Oh wait, someone did this and found beards have been in for over a decade, and now they are on the way out). We could also see if Bic and the other competing razor companies have also lost 8 billion bucks or not.

      And if beards are such a disaster, why not make an ad celebrating clean-shaven men? Or, since Gillette likes to attack men, they could have attacked bearded men alone. But no, they decided to make an attack ad against all men, because leftism makes people stupid.
