And this one is a biggie!
Nike is based in Beaverton, Oregon, which is a substantial inner-ring suburb of Portland. It is the fourth-largest employer in the area and only one out of two large employers that is not a health care system.
So it was a big deal when the corporation temporarily closed its flagship store due to safety concerns. It was a huge symbolic hit to the reputation of the city and an economic hit to the neighborhood in which it was based.
And now it’s permanently closed! HERE.
Get woke, go broke… Or in Portland’s case, kowtow to the left and go broke…
Along with Seattle, SFO, Chiraq, Bal’more, DC, and Philly. And NYC is catching up due to their ‘sanctuary city’ BS, now that they are having to actually DO some support…
LA is pretty much a lost cause, between the CA gov’t initiatives, city policies, and being overrun with homeless/illegals.
I’m SO glad I’m in Tiny Town, Texas, west of the Mississippi, and well away from both coasts and the idjits in charge out there.
Oh, and on a positive note, my new eyeball is ‘looking good’ according to the eye doc that poked and prodded it and shined bright lights in it yesterday… WHY does that #@%#%# light have to be SO bright???
