You'd almost think that handcuff contracts mean the whole thing is just a grifting scam.
Does anyone even watch golf? Why?
Adjacent blog post I noticed recently announced a boycott of Kohl's for selling BLM shirts. Cancel culture!
exerpt wrote:Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, has accused Walmart of "canceling" him by pulling his company's pillows from the retailer's shelves.
In a call with Insider on Thursday night, Lindell described a Zoom meeting in which he said a Walmart representative told him the company would start selling MyPillow products only online and not in stores.
"They dropped MyPillow, and it really hurt my employees because they were our biggest distributor," Lindell said. "They were by far and away number one."
Lindell then called Walmart "absolutely disgusting" while describing his pillows as "one of the top-selling products in the history of Walmart."
During his conversation with Insider, Lindell said he heard MyPillow products would not be sold in Walmart stores about two weeks ago after returning from flying "all over the country" to deal with "the election stuff."
Lindell said he got on a Zoom call with a Walmart representative in which he proposed lowering the price of his pillows. He said the representative didn't get back to him for a week, after which his company was told Walmart was going to "drop MyPillow."
"I tell them what I'm offering them, and I'm saying: 'Why are you doing this? Why are you kicking us out and canceling us?'" Lindell said. "When we were your biggest product, the biggest of all time!"
Lindell said the Walmart representative also told him his pillows didn't meet the retailer's customer-satisfaction criteria.
Walmart's website shows "ratings" for each product it sells. As of press time, the MyPillow Classic Bed Pillow had 3.3 stars, based on 2,084 reviews.
"I said, 'Shame on you, Walmart. You have over 10,000 vendors from China. I make all my pillows in Minnesota," Lindell said. "I was so upset. I shut the computer."
Lindell told Insider that Walmart would "never get to sell MyPillows again." "What they did is inexcusable! It's cancel culture, and you don't get to come back," he added.
A Walmart representative confirmed to Insider that MyPillow products would no longer be carried in stores but would continue to be available online.
Other retailers have similarly distanced themselves from Lindell. In April 2021, Costco pulled MyPillow's products, as did Bed Bath & Beyond, QVC, JCPenney, and Wayfair.

All of his Facebook post are about Bitcoin. I don't get it. You live in Vegas and date a hot girl but Bitcoin is the thing you want to put out to the world.

If they can get their money out, which they can't.someone who bought bitcoin a few years ago is still doing remarkably well. a return on investment way beyond anything one could achieve from regular stocks.
for these above people, immediate liquidity or cashing out isn't the point, anyway. they're ideological 'lifers' on the crypto/blockchain wagon. and, as i said, if you put in a modest amount (which you could afford to lose) even a couple years ago, to say nothing of being an early adaptor, then bitcoin is still one of the best 'money grows on trees' investments around. there are people driving lambos now because they took a nerdy interest in home mining in the 2010s, or because they bought 20 BTC in the early days for use on the novel shopping sites of the darkweb, etc.If they can get their money out, which they can't.

that’s the situation in the UK now. one of the major transport unions are striking over it.
