Folding @Bobobie's GWGB threads into a general. Salon, come on down!
Habitually unprofitable political organ Salon.com has been sold in a fire sale because its two doddering angel investors will soon be angels.
The $5M price is actually $1.15M; the outstanding $3.85 million chunk will be paid in two subsequent installments "over the next two years."



Though it was once a powerful force in the early days of internet blogging and a prominent incubator of talent, the website has fallen on hard times in recent years. On May 3, the filing revealed, CEO Jordan Hoffner departed the company. Salon’s longtime chief financial officer, Elizabeth Hambrecht, also jumped ship last October.

The company’s troubles, however began long before and were documented in detail in a 2016 Politico Magazine story, which revealed that for years Salon — deeply unprofitable — had been kept afloat by elderly benefactors, John Warnock, a co-founder of Adobe, and Bill Hambrecht a venture capitalist. The two are now 78 and 84 respectively.

“Because Salon has run deficits for almost every quarter since it was founded, the company has relied on regular interest-free cash advances from Warnock, chairman of Salon’s board, and Hambrecht, a board member,” Politico wrote at the time. “From Salon’s founding until the end of 2015, the most recent data available, Warnock and Hambrecht have given the company nearly $20 million in cash advances, and Warnock also personally guaranteed a $1 million line of credit.”

Patrion and now Youtube is learning that average folk is who they should be catering to. Not the Media and a minority of SJW crybabies.

All you needed was 600K to buy Salon. The average price of a house in a decent neighborhood.

Getting your hands dirty isn’t a sin
Choosing the correct “man smell” diesel fuel, and whisky or tobacco and beer?
The second amendment applies to all citizens
Rope and knots or cable and slip eyes for public hangings?

Analog clocks and the ability to glance at it and interpret it.
Driving a car with a manual transmission.
The reasons why burritos are better than tacos.
Why man buns, hipster beards and skinny jeans are things you'll regret later.

I believe an argument could be made for either on the last one.

Having dirty hands doesn't make you tougher. Apropos of nothing. Just something
I heard after seeing a redneck get his ass beat.

A little background required. Somehow in Britain it's not assault to dump a milkshake on a public figure, so the usual suspects are not-assaulting Literal Nazis



On the weekend of some Brexit-type rally MacDonald's announced/were told that they wouldn't be selling milkshakes in order to stem this nonsense.

So the woke geniuses at Burger King, UK division, felt compelled to post this (since scrubbed):



You would have to think at this point they're shorting their own stock, but it's not a public company. It's literally for those delicious virtue points.

Here's the totally unexpected feedback:

A bitch who has to make sure everyone knows she got the joke is exactly the kind of bitch who follows a fast food chain profile on Twitter.
Also, holding the dog or cat to try and distract from your dog face fools no one.

Actually great idea to counter by ordering milkshakes and throwing them back at employees. See how long their little innuendo lasts then.

Will the left ever put two and two together and come up with anything besides potato?

How many examples do they need? Comic books, Hollywood movies, the recent "learn to code" implosion of the online leftist "news" media, CNN's ratings sinking like a stone, etc...

Everything the wokesterism touches turns to shit, but do you think the left is capable of thinking to themselves "Hmm, maybe this same phenom may just apply to politics?

Gee, ya think? Could it possibly be?

Naaaaah. Just keep doing what you're doing with your wacky ass wokester candidates. I'm sure it'll all come up aces.
