It's namely billboard advertising for some of these stores.

Lids does enough business, like Gamestop, in critical areas that malls (which are sadly a dead concept) serve more as a paid billboard that other successful outlets cover. And some states give them grants to retain certain employment within the city/state to get kickbacks from corpo loopholes.

Lids can afford it cause Pop's Hats small business can't.

I know, I was once al.ost in said industry.

Too old to have ridden the indie scene and too young to have gotten into the first generation.

My timing was very off. Still very passionate about it, but had to change focus. Something I feel may be better in the long run.

I don't even think it's the only one. We got a video mentioning our dig last week on gaming that SBI is just the only one to slip up.

So it's their sacrificial lamb. Symbolism and all. Tp distract they got others on the payroll.

I think they don't care if it's legal or not. It will probably be a way to galvanize and socially assassinate his character to incite actual insurrection style antics.

I am in the belief that they will attempt to "rectify" 2020 after noticing it was all stolen, and then claim Trump cannot win a third election.

See this as a positive, you just didn't see it coming after waves of their marketing saying how vegan it was years ago.

It took long to come around to blatantly showcase this mess.

I cannot even stand celebrity praise anymore. It used to be just cringey, now it just simply disgusts me.

I can respect their works if you like the artist/actor, but that does not warrant such praise fpr the individual.

An offcolor (but often funny) tweet from 15 years ago could get anyone right of Mao ruined for life, but she didn't think hers would cause it was "just a joke?"

Rules for thee. And only for thee, I see.

Sorry but no.

Been exiled for it, ridiculed for it.

To accept their calls now will only tell them it's okay to do it again. I don't care if I am being called selfish again for ignoring them, it's better than what they said to my face.

There is actually a methodology that talks about people being comfortably numb. Essentially they will complain, but do nothing cause they have enough to get by every day. Enough for necessities, and juuuust enough more for some kind of escape. Games, lattes, streaming subs, you name it.

Sometimes things getting worse is a better path for people to wake up and act.

This is what got me to wake up to Trump. Even ignoring Trump's name, you still be left with a good question;

"How did everyone else miss THAT many children?"

The answer? They didn't. And it's telling.

As I have said before, I am awakening to God and Jesus. I do not believe I am the best to say much on such things, but I give my best to explain what I am experiencing through my unfogging lens.

The major part for me is looking back from 2019, where I just finally accepted I have no options for my life left. I gave prayer a chance. And over the next couple years I went down such a different road than I anticipated that I didn't realize where I stand now in contrast.

What makes me believe this was God's doing, is there was so many articulate, and unexplainable moments that cannot simply dismissed away with logical breakdowns, and makes more sense when you bring in a divine intervention possibility in the explanation.

I went from a defeated game designer, having everything stripped, to making sauces and cleared a soace where family do not interfere. Not once before I truly cooked a day in my life. Til now.

My story may not be as exciting as those harrowing moments, but it is the truest moment in my live to believe God curated this whole shift for me.

To add to that, many campuses are having harder and harder times passing the liberals and the conservative groups are simply not attending college.

Poltical tribalism is one of the most manipulative systems they introduced. You can essentially raise a cult with it simply because red man or blue man did the thing you are enforced to support.

I don't think we have discovered its replentishment speed yet.

However, assuming it does not regenerate, we still have oil to burn at our current rate for the next 180 years.

How long has oil even been around in common use? Less than that. By the time we actually drain it, we'd likely be on a third wave of newer energy and technology that surpasses oil's common use.

Kek, hey, it may be my saving grace for my family. It's too small to be immediately affected by the economy, and it's backed by some silver stacks when we turn this hog back around.

If it is a dude as you say, I think it's passing than 99% of all other dudes. And like 60% of all females as a whole.

No, I think it is still her. But she ain't the same her she used to be. Evil perverts God's intended design.

I limit my purchases per day and to a daily limit. I often skirt around most things at work. Regretfully, the type of work I do on the daily prevents me from having a consistent lunch prepped (because I travel all over the state). Most times I get it it's bare minimum to keep me going to eat at home.

One of the many reasons I started my sauce business.

I hear ya, but many options are gone due to our state's lockdown BS emptying out any real choice.

I don't go all that often, but enough to notice their new tactics.
