Nike online sales up 31% since the Kaepernick ad. Magically all the Nike is going to die threads disappeared from patnet. Strange coincidence. What happened to all the all the dire predictions of how Nike's sales and stock were going to crash?

Some of these are indeed debatable, but you're missing the fact that this is a small part of conservatives that insist on the more extreme stories and that part could have never voted Trump into office (alone). The majority of conservatives simply want to have a say in abortion, acknowledge the 2 biological sexes without repercussions, low taxes, no illegal immigrants and their crimes, respect for law enforcement, military and the flag, etc. and many more, totally rational, yet debatable positions. Whereas for the left the vast majority totally rolls with the literally Hitlerisms, the completely fabricated stories such as poorly reflecting pictures from Obummer's detention centers (attributed to Trump), hands-up-don't shoot or completely doctored 911 tapes such as in the Zimmerman case. So to use the very simplified but often useful 80/20 rule, left: 80% nutjobs, 20% reasonable, right: 20% nutjobs, 80% reasonable. And these numbers are still overly fair to the left.

I just saw that ad as I was channel surfing. It's inane, idiotic, stupid.

Sports figures in general, and Colin in particular, offer no insights into how to live life.

Didn't the Libs used to be actively against "corporate greed" like Nike making so much money using exploited foreign labor and low environmental standards? Maybe this Kaepernick stunt is just a way for Nike to inoculate itself and get customers from Libs that will now forgive the exploitation/environmental sins since Nike now supports a Lib hero. Someone posted that Nike internet sales are up 35%, so maybe that strategy is working.


This is what completely baffles me. It took only a few years for the left to entirely transform from anti-corporate-greed, anti-slave-labor, anti-war, "russians-are-people-too", "have a heart for old people (incl. whites)", "technology-is-evil-and-enslaves-the-kids", "we-don't-want-no-stinkin-social-media-corporate-score", "cops are not paid well enough", "small, no violence government" to the 180 degree exact opposite in all those positions, to an amalgamation of love for corporate open-border fuck you Americans globalists, hatred of anything white/cacuasian (and now Asian since they score too well), LEOs and Russian, embracing social media leftoid scores to ostracize and fire anybody who doesn't comply with their views and use big government force to push their agenda and hatred for Trump and heartland America. They hopped into bed with figurative devils such as HRC while fucking over Bernie, embraced beelzebezos, Nike, and all the big tech conglomerates and pretty much abandoned everything they once stood for. The American people are not that dumb that they wouldn't notice that and this is the reason Trump is in office and will get re-elected if they continue to hate on their own.

That New Balance 993 is one of the US made models.

True story: the 990 series was originally conceived by- and in part designed by- Steve Jobs. He was a huge fan of NB and wanted them to come up with something sportier at the time (early 80s). I just learned this a couple years ago. Been wearing some variant of the 99x for well over a decade because they're reasonably comfortable and built like a tank. I'm not even an Apple fan lol.

The government has tried and is trying to control the weather, it's not a grand conspiracy, but there are experiments for example to use particles (usually emitted by airplanes) to shield the sun in drought conditions and/or produce clouds. That's different from the chemtrail conspiracy, but there is a bit of overlap. There are reputable document experts that have examined Obummers birth certificate and swear - and come up with at least somewhat credible evidence - it's been assembled in one way or the other. There is no definite answer on this and it also - even if assembled in the aftermath - doesn't prove he was or was not born in the US, but the document is definitely debatable, much moreso than Trump is literally Hitler. I don't think there's any credible significant evidence for Sandy hook, Glen beck being a CIA operative, the pizza ring and the death squat (with the exception of the Seth Rich murder). But again, these are not topics the vast majority of conservatives focuses on, which corroborates my point in the previous post.

So each one in it's time dominated the entire conservative press for months (or years for the birthers) because the vast majority of conservatives don't focus on them? How does that work? These are only examples of the extreme of extreme. The more mundane fictions are daily fare.

, to an amalgamation of love for corporate open-border fuck you Americans globalists, hatred of anything white/cacuasian (and now Asian since they score too well), LEOs and Russian, embracing social media leftoid scores to ostracize and fire anybody who doesn't comply with their views and use big government force to push their agenda and hatred for Trump and heartland America.

and who is the mythical "left"? Seriously point out all the "left" love for corporate open-border leaders. Pretty strange trump and republicans are pushing as hard as they can to roll back all rules on corporations and having trouble doing it. The tax cut barely got through, obamacare rollback died. I would think with the "left" love for corporate open border embracing bezoos,nike, big tech conglomerates support it would go very quickly. What is holding things up? Is there some kind of "dark matter" in the political process that is thwarting what you claim to be the desires of the "left" and the long standing desires of the "right" from becoming action? Serious question, want to address it or just play the usual ideologue game of strawman, dodge ball, and change the subject?

Does the handful of extremists being the "left" make alex jones nutcases and the white supremacists the "right"?

You're missing the point. If the youngins, the future of the US, are good with Nike and Kaepernick then the Rs have serious problems.


Ah - hitching your wagon to the young and stupid?

The problem for mush-headed Libs is that many of the young and stupid grow up and get wise. And the old and wise are living longer than ever and remain very engaged in politics.


The old are such horrible Americans, you have to wonder if they’re borderline retarded. They’ve been gobbling up the Republicans propaganda for a lifetime, and now are worse than ISIS

That's false. None of those topics dominated the majority of the conservative press for any prolonged time. Compare that to the lamestream coverage of Trump and there's no equivalency, not even in the slightest way.

Interesting. Nike stock price at new high over this ad.

I wonder if this is short term hype from investors after thinking this was a good move due to a bump in Instagram followers.

I think long term, the trend will go down as a lot of families who replace shoes often will not buy the Nike brand anymore. Kapernick is a poor role model and I think most recognize this.

My kids love Nike because of the swoosh, but we'll be replacing their shoes with Reebok, Mizuno, New Balance or other competitor when the time comes. My wife and I use. Both Brooks and Mizuno.

Maybe stay away from the personal attacks so I don't have to point them out. I've tried marking comments as personal but unfortunately the moderation of this site is extremely biased and I find it safer to just point out the personal attacks. That way I have proof of the personal attack.

How can a point be valid if it breaks the one rule Patrick cares about most? Don't make personal comments. It's really not that hard.

Personally I thought his comment was mocking Trunpcucks. I didn't think he was making a genuine racist comment. But that is niether here nor there because what I was doing was pointing out the double standard that exists here at pat.net it really wouldn't have mattered what his comment was because all I was doing was pointing out your personal attacks.

It sounds like you are saying it's ok to make personal attacks as long as the one you are attacking has made a racist comment? Are there any other situations you feel it's all right to make personal attacks?

Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
