    Intresting developments for Bud Lite.

    WalMart is now begining to cut A/B and Bud Lite specific shelf space in order to give more room for their competition. At least that's what I saw on YouTube.

    Now at first I was skeptical, but upon my own observations, they may be right.
    My local WalMart has taken 50% of Bud shelf space away. Where once was a double cooler full of bud is a half a cooler of bud and a half a cooler of Quarts of various beers, not all A/B products, Coors and Miller are owning the rest of those coolers now.

    Now when this began I was not a Bud Light Beer fan. I had no skin in the game except for a generally creepy feeling looking at their spokesperson.
    But I must say, I am impressed with what happened.
    Market Pressures and all.

    But here's the funny thing the economy is in the crapper, WalMart is closing stores; so when Bud Light farts, WalMart has to burp.
    See how that works?
    WalMart is more sensitive to market pressures now. When Bud Light goes woke, before they go broke; folks with skin in the game start backing away from them like they have leporacy.
    They lost their shelf space.
    The genius in all of this it was so predictable, the magic was that everybody kind of went along with it, the sad part will be that we will forget about it by July 4th.

    That was my thought... at first. Quite frankly you might call us the Bud Light Long Range Rifle Team. I thought the boycott was just another joke. But it seems as though the shelf space issue is no damned joke, and I've finally joined the boycott.

    And old guy called me out when I was walking out of the store a few weeks ago. I said Eff it! I can drink Miller Lite. We're not drinking in June anyway, but when I do grab beer, it's not going to be Crud Lite for a long time.

    Not necessarily. I'm sure that when this whole brouhaha started AB InBev figured everything would blow over by Memorial Day. That didn't happen.

    I'm excited. For far too long corporations have been virtue signaling by kowtowing to leftist groups and interests. They are finally learning that there are others out there, and you ignore and alienate them at your peril.

    I damned sure hope so. People are starting to get sick of faggotry being shoved down their damned throats at every freaking turn!

    An enthusiastic “AMEN!” to that.
    A true "Gun Guy" (or gal) should have familiarity and a modicum of proficiency with most all firearms platforms.

    Look, I really don’t care about what someone wants to do to themself. I really don’t. I don’t care what you call yourself, who you want to screw, if you think you’re a cat. What I am tired of is company’s getting involved in all this crap. I just want to buy a beer or a pair of jeans or whatever without having to worry about what cause (left or right) I am helping. Just sell me a damn product, that’s it.

    Agreed. But these companies are lead by gutless idiots who get bullied into supporting lunatic left wing nonsense like this. I completely agree that they should say.. "We just make _____ and don't get involved in people's mental illness"

    Once upon a time, that's how it worked. It didn't matter if the owner believed this or that, that was his right and he was entitled to his opinion. Started out innocently enough with "Buy American", which led to "Buy Union" which gave people the realization that if they can actually tell people what to buy, they can probably tell them what to think and believe.

    And in the 80s when Walmart was mostly "proudly made in the USA" if the price difference wasn't dramatic, I'd buy the American product which was usually better made. For tools I always bought Craftsman because "Made in the US and Lifetime Warranty", both of which are no longer true. But at least I have decent tools.

    But when Bill Ruger and S&W tried to tell us how to think or what firearms they felt were suitable for "ordinary Americans", we left that shit on the shelf and it took a long, long time for both of those brands to repair the damage.

    It's always funny to see what "events" get deep traction.

    With guns, almost NOBODY is aware of the "sporter clause", but once they found out they were buying Wayne's wardrobe, they even bailed on the NRA.

    And now it's Bud lites / ABs turn, so if we can burn the NRA, then AB can burn in hell. Walmart knows their markups are razor thin, so shit that isn't moving gets moved out.

    Regardless, some levity. This works for all brands.

    It's f-ing close to water.
