GOOD BYE GILLETTE … YOU JUST LOST A LIFETIME CUSTOMER, #SHUTUP&SHAVE
Gillette, owner by Proctor and Gamble, just made a big marketing mistake, huge mistake. The company whose job it is to sell their products just created a commercial that will in essence lose 50 to 60 percent of the market share of men. Your job isn’t to do foolish social justice, its to sell razors. What better way to do so than to insult your customer base by calling them all bullies and sexual assaulter. Really, “toxic masculinity?” How is this for toxic, you F*ck yourself. Maybe this is what does on in your board rooms at Gillette and Proctor & Gamble, but guess what, all are not guilty. I was just wondering, if an individual of a minority race or say a religious group was known to act in a certain way, would you create a similar ad for them grouping all black, Hispanic or Muslims under one blanket? Hardly.
This type of nonsense needs to come to an end. Last time I checked, it was not only white men who behaved badly. Its not a gender issue, its a character issue.
Gillette has come under fire after releasing a commercial that draws on the #MeToo movement to challenge “toxic masculinity.”
In the ad, the razor brand — a subsidiary of global giant Proctor & Gamble — calls out “bullying,” “sexual harassment” and “toxic masculinity,” and questions: “Is this the best a man can get?” The campaign goes on to encourage men to hold one another accountable for their behavior.
You can contact Proctor & Gamble and let them know what you think of their BS ad.
The razor company’s short film, called Believe, plays on their famous slogan “The best a man can get”, replacing it with “The best men can be”.
The company says it wants men to hold each other “accountable”.
Some have praised the message of the advert, which aims to update the company’s 30-year-old tagline, but others say Gillette is “dead” to them.
The ad has been watched more than 2 million times on YouTube in 48 hours.
It currently has 23,000 likes and 214,000 dislikes, at time of writing – and that’s increasing all the time.
This is what the wusification of America looks like. Heaven forbid men be masculine. Because everyone knows that girls/women have never been bullies or harassed anyone.
You have just lost a customer of over 30 years. I generally am not in support of boycotts like this; however, in your case I will make an exception.
MAGA!! President Doanld Trump’s list of 289 Accomplishments in just 20 Months .., ITS TIME TO VOTE REPUBLICAN AND KEEP MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
2018 MIDTERMS ARE A REFERENDUM ON TRUMP AND HE HAS DONE AN AMAZING JOB …
The 2018 midterm elections are a referendum on the amazing job that President Donald Trump has accomplished in just 20 months. The Washington Examiner has provided a list of 289 accomplishments of the Trump presidency and the continuous winning of the American people. America, are you tired of winning? If so, vote Democrat. Because what has been accomplished since the 2016 presidential election has been a product of Trump and the GOP. The Democrats, the LEFT and the MSM has done nothing but obstruct. You are witness to the best economy in a half century. For blacks, Hispanics and Asians, i has been the lowest unemployment rate in history. President Trump, with the aid of the GOP has done wonders. Take a look at all the accomplishments since the liberal MSM will never report the positive.
Most presidents and politicians just make promises to get elected. President Trump has come thru on his promises, now it is our turn to than him for is and the GOP’s hard word and continue to allow them to Make America Great Again, vote Republicans!!!
The Trump administration’s often overlooked list of achievements has surpassed those of former President Ronald Reagan at this time and more than doubled since the last tally of accomplishments after his first year in office, giving President Trump a solid platform to run for re-election on.
As Trump nears the two-year mark of his historic election and conducts political rallies around the country, during which he talks up his wins in hopes it will energize Republican voters, the administration has counted up 289 accomplishments in 18 categories, capped by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
They include 173 major wins, such as adding more than 4 million jobs, and another 116 smaller victories, some with outsize importance, such as the 83 percent one-year increase in arrests of MS-13 gang members.
“Trump’s successes in reducing the cost of taxes and regulations, rebuilding our military, avoiding wars of choice and changing the courts rival those of all previous Republican presidents,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

ANOTHER ECONOMIC RECORD FOR THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY …
As reported at CNBC, the NFIB Small Business Optimism Index jumped to 108.8 last month, an all-time high. This is the highest level ever recorded in the survey’s 45-year history and above the previous record of 108 in 1983, set during the second year of Ronald Reagan’s presidency. President Donald Trump is making good on his promise to “Making America Great Again.”
U.S. small business optimism surged to a record in August as the tax cuts and deregulation efforts of President Donald Trump and the Republican-led Congress led to more sales, hiring and investment, according to a survey by the National Federation of Independent Business.
The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index jumped to 108.8 last month, the highest level ever recorded in the survey’s 45-year history and above the previous record of 108 in 1983, set during the second year of Ronald Reagan’s presidency. The August figure was up from a 107.9 reading in July.
The NFIB noted record readings for job creation plans and the amount of owners saying it was a good time to expand. Capital spending plans were the highest since 2007.
“Today’s groundbreaking numbers are demonstrative of what I’m hearing everyday from small business owners – that business is booming,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan, in a press release Tuesday. “As the tax and regulatory landscape changed, so did small business expectations and plans.”
I guess Obama will take credit for this as well.
MORE ECONOMIC WINNING WITH SOME PUZZLING UNDERLYING DATA …
According the the Washington Examiner, 83% of executives say business is better and 76% see more growth. This is more economic winning under the Trump presidency. However, there are a couple of disturbing quirky elements from this data. Despite the GOP tax cuts that have helped businesses, the executives prefer Democrats in the upcoming midterm congressional elections and also believe that Democrats are better for business. HUH? This makes entirely no sense. The reason why the economy is booming is because President Donald Trump and Republicans lowered taxes and roll back regulations. There was not one vote from Democrats. Also, Democrats are on record that they want to repeal the Trump tax cuts, how could Democrats ever be good for business or growth?
Over eight-in-10 executives believe that business is better than it was two years ago, and almost as many expect further growth in the third year of the Trump administration, according to a new survey of decision makers.
The Zogby Poll from Zogby Analytics, provided to Secrets Friday, also found that both big and small businesses see the economic climate in great shape.
“An overwhelming majority (83 percent) of respondents said business is doing better compared to two years ago. Whether this sentiment is the result of actions put forth during the Obama presidency or Trump presidency is up for debate and will be divided along partisan lines, but at the moment there is momentum building in the U.S. economy,” said the trademarked survey.
America, it was the Trump & GOP tax cuts and his roll back of regulations that has caused to economic boom. The reason why the DOW is up over 8000 since Trump’s election, why the S&P 500 and NASDAQ surged to record highs and why the US consumer confidence has rose to an 18-year high, why we are all-time lows with Black and Hispanic unemployment, small business optimism at 35-year high and why the U.S. Second-Quarter GDP 4.1%, adjusted to 4.2%!!!
FOLKS, THAT IS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND REPUBLICANS WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE, NOT DEMOCRATS. If you want all this to end and if you want to stop winning, vote Democrat in the midterms and watch it all crash.
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
As reported at FOX Business, Small business owners’ optimism hit a 35 year high in July at 107.9, just shy of the July 1983 record-high of 108. Small businesses also set records in terms of job creation and hiring. President Donald Trump is doing an incredible job of creating an environment conducive to business, the economy and unemployment. Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy and this type of optimism has not been seen since the days of Ronald Reagan. AMAZING!!!
Small business owners’ optimism touched a 35-year high in July, with businesses setting records in terms of job creation and hiring, while they cited the availability of qualified workers as their biggest challenge. In another signal of just how good this economy is, the small business owners also noted that they were able to increase prices.
In July 2018, the NFIB’s Small Business Optimism Index marked its second highest level in the survey’s 45-year history, at 107.9 – just shy of the July 1983 record-high of 108.
Records were set for job creation plans. A seasonally-adjusted net 23 percent of businesses are planning to create new jobs, while 37 percent of business owners said they had job openings that they could not fill in July.
