This week’s DaTechGuy off DaRadio no frills livestream podcast comes via a new laptop (Thanks to all of you) and some new topics:

  1. Goodyear Goodbye & fighting back
  2. Netflix & the Weinstein / Epstein Culture
  3. Bannon and the big lie

We’ll be talking about these and more on DaTechGuy off DaRadio today at 3 PM EST. You can watch the live stream here (the embedded placeholder of last week’s show will be replaced 5 or ten min before we start)

Looking forward to our time together.

FYI remember this podcast exists to do two things.

  • Boost the readership of the blog
  • Bring in an extra $180 or so a month.

If you like what we do here please share the podcast or consider kicking into DaTipJar. Of course there is the problem of us getting big and effective enough for google, youtube and twitter to ban but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Why POTUS Goodyear Fight Matters

Harvey: You HIT me!

Captain Troop: Now you just sit there and think about it.

Batman: No Joker. You’re playing the wrong game. The old game. Tonight you’re taking no hostages. Tonight I’m taking no prisoners.

There are a lot of people on the left (and in NeverTrump) who are salivating over the President taking on Goodyear Tire.

That’s because the left is reactive and not stratigic. They see a chance at a short term gain and are jumping at it.

They’ve missed the entire point of what the President did.

If the President had just tweeted and said nothing else then it might be a minor story.

But when the press secretary was asked about this yesterday, the White House, didn’t spin, didn’t back down, they Doubled down!

And when the president was asked about it later, he didn’t budge:

“I would be very much in favor if people don’t want to buy there,” Mr. Trump told reporters at a White House briefing Wednesday, adding, “I think it’s disgraceful that they did this.”

Asked whether he’d be willing to swap out the Goodyear tires on the presidential limousine, Mr. Trump responded, “Yeah, I would do that. I would, I would swap them out, based on what I heard. We’ll see what happens. Look. you’re going to have a lot of people not wanting to buy that product anymore. And they’ll buy from a competitor, made in the USA, okay?”

And the result. Goodyear stock was down 3% and it’s reported that Goodyear dealers aren’t happy about what the company did.

What does this mean? It mean that the next time a BLM group or a consulting firm or a HR department full of woke leftist decide to tell a company to pony up, give in or to retrain their workforce, instead of instantly giving in or paying off and they have in the past they now know that they do, they are just one tweet away from slicing their customer base by tens of millions.

This is why we conservatives can’t spare this man: HE FIGHTS!

The best part? Donald Trump will still retain that power after January of 2025

The old rules are gone the days of fighting back have begun!

The Goodyear Disaster

When I came home from work last night I saw this post at Instapundit concerning goodyear tires.

A photo seen circulating on social media shows a slide that was presented during a diversity training showing what’s acceptable and what isn’t acceptable as part of Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company’s zero-tolerance policy.

Under acceptable: Black Lives Matter (BLM), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride.

Listed as unacceptable: Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, MAGA Attire, Political Affiliated Slogans or Material.

The response from Goodyear was pablum but the response from President Trump was a lot more direct:

To say this is bad for the company is an understatement. This is not a niche product like some beer in Seattle that can just restrict it’s customer base., This is a product that are used across the political spectrum, and if you automatically exclude half of the voting population from your customer and offend police departments who buy tires in bulk base you are likely going to have trouble as a national brand.

Even worse now if they back away now you have the twitter mob (which while smaller is louder) on your ass.

If I was a stockholder I’d demand heads roll.

Exit question does this hurt Trump in Ohio where the tires are made or are the rank and file with him and want to get rid of the woke mob telling them what to think?

Update: That didn’t take long, they ran faster than Sir Robin but I have a question:

Translated: please Please PLEASE Mr. President take it back!
