Arizona Governor Withdraws Incentives After Nike Pulls Flag Shoe

Arizona Governor Withdraws Incentives After Nike Pulls Flag Shoe

I am done with Nike.

Colin Kaepernic was a so-so football player that was close to the end of his career. He wasn’t even good enough to get a job as an ESPN analyst. He maintained his relevance to some American consumers by inspiring contempt for America’s symbols. His original protests were supposed to be about police violence but now he seems to be branching into other forms of outrage – whatever will get his name in print, it seems.

I think everyone that hates America’s symbols just because they are old should buy Nike products and everyone else that loves America and understands that we have never been a perfect country but we sure have been better than the majority of countries in the last 250 years should not buy Nike products.

Good job to Governor Ducey for drawing a line in the desert sand.

While digital versions of our credit and debit cards aren’t widely accepted just yet, it’s a given that in the future, the majority of the places where we shop will accept Apple Pay, Google Pay and the like. I look forward to the day when I can increase my personal security and reduce my pocket bloat by only carrying a small computer (my phone) to identify me and conduct my transactions.

From government IDs to hotel keys, the rest of our cards are quickly moving to mobile phones. As this becomes more ubiquitous, it will be harder and harder to justify carrying unique pieces of plastic in your wallet.

I look forward to this image being everywhere!
