I liked this article from Alter-net about the trends in our buying since the Trumpster took over. It caught my eye because I’ve watched with some interest the goods and services that folks like Glenn Beck and televangelists and certain cable news and radio yammerers had been hawking throughout Obama’s presidency. Guns and prepper stuff and gold were big time on their list. I laughed about all of the things except guns.
Now, that Trump’s in guess what’s selling in the camp of the left? You got it guns and prepper stuff (including absolutely useless bomb shelters) and quite a few of the left wing radio stations (admittedly few in comparison to the right) have gold sellers as sponsors. The one item selling that is decidedly left is long term birth control; which goes to show that the left does plan better than the right.
Be sure to read the comments in the article. I did.
The thing that strikes me is that most of the same companies that made a fortune selling through fear during Obama’s terms are making a fortune already using fears on the left to boost sales.
Looks like we’ll survive or die with a goodly amount on our credit cards; it’s the American way.
