It's all a business decision.

 

First, for whatever reasons, sales/profits/etc have been judged to be unacceptable, causing the line to be dropped.

 

Second, there have been communications to businesses saying that the business would not be patronized as long as a certain line was carried.  

 

Remember what happened to Paula Deen's lines of merchadise when her racist statements became known nationwide?

 

Those are facts of the business world.

Not fair or equitable - but that's how things are.

 

Retail sales has been this way for the history of this nation, for dozens of centuries worldwide, and will continue - even if a tiny-fingered vulgarian momser and his obsequiously fawning sycophants disapprove...

It has to do with your assertion (in "the discussion") that if a store had what you wanted "and at decent prices, you could find no reason not to shop there."

 

So, relative to that assertion (in "the discussion"), I asked you if you would feel the same if that store was owned by Hillary.

 

But instead of answering the question, you evaded it with an accusatory question ..... avoiding a response which would likely render your assertion negated.

But what does what you posted have to do with the topic?  Was it to engage in discussion or attempt to create dissension?  In my opinion it could be considered an attempt to bait.

So what items are we talking about?  I thought this was about what a chain of retail stores was carrying.   Besides the discussion isn't about the President.

But of course this isn't about politicians, but about a company.  A poster attempted to make it about her, when the discussion is about Bed, Bath and Beyond.  So you can't add to that discussion but attempting to insert dissension?

Perhaps you might find it amusing that it was the poster I replied to who brought Hillary into the discussion.  And this topic is about a company, not about a political figure.


I repeat:
