    I never said anything was threatened, but when a certain group is doubling on a yearly bases IMO its a cause for market analytics of that future demographic. as far as total population, you are right about it still being less than 1%, I cannot and will not dispute math

    You definitely implied it when you said earlier “they know the future will be trans.” Even if that group doubles again next year, it still won’t be significant enough to impact the entire 334 million Americans here, especially since other groups of people will also grow in that time frame.

    Thank god!! As I worry about paying my bills, feeding my family, my always looming mortality, etc. the one thing that always lingers at the back of my mind is "what picture is currently on bud light cans?" Thankfully our nation has it's priorities in order and we are focused on the issues that truly matter to Americans!!

    Are they crying about bud light cans? Shooting bud light cans? All the right's whining about leftist snowflakes is one of histories great projections. No group of snowflakes whines, moans, and plays the victim more than the American right. Even as almost all of their perceived grievances are either wildly exaggerated or entirely made up!!

    If that group isn’t significant enough to impact 334 million people, then what was the point of Bud hiring Mulvaney?

    The media tells you what your topics are and you regurgitate those topics here: pathetic.

    I think the funniest part of this is the stock price seems to have almost regained the amount lost since this first hit.



    That said, they still have a ways to go to make up the, just under $100 it's lost since 2016.

    Can’t say I know for sure, but I know I’m not the one who’s in an uproar over it, otherwise there wouldn’t be like 6 threads on this one subject.

    Maybe you missed it, but the subject of trannies has been all the rage on TV, magazine covers, sports, schools, teachers, school boards, local governments, state governments, congress and the Oval Office. The people who call other people science deniers are trying to force down our throats an issue that is scientifically impossible. As Psaki would say, this nightmare is circling back on libs to the point that even LGB people are pushing back.

    I’d say it’s wrong to promote a mental illness as being normal. Same thing with promoting a scientific impossibility as being real.

    Wow!
    Second-Hand, anecdotal "evidence" based on the claimed opinions of "one person and her friends"...
    That settles it!:bored:

    Schizophrenia. My mother in law has it, she’s absolutely and totally convinced DHS is spying on her. She was schizo her whole life but it’s gotten worse as she grew older. Just this week, she claimed people are trying to kill her, a neighbor pushed her off her chair, a neighbor made her coffee too hot and this morning a neighbor made her almost trip and fall in her bedroom. Also, every so often she will ask me what I think the number 8 means, or the color red, and stuff like that.

    My mother in law is medically certified to have dementia, schizo and paranoia, and even she hasn’t gone off the deep end to the extent of thinking she’s a man.

    This Bud VP really tarnished the brand.

    Budweiser Brands Won’t Be Welcome at Oktoberfest For The 1st Time in 75 Years

    Every year, millions of people travel to the largest volksfest in the world: Oktoberfest. Held in a town called Okto on the Bavarian side of the Swiss Alps, the 6-day party is filled with fair food from across the world and nearly every beer brewed anywhere on the planet.

    This year, however, one major brand will miss the festivities: Budweiser. According to festival organizer Joseppi Barrona, Oktoberfest is a time for food, fun, and festivities and not for political posturing.

    Except being trans is not considered to be a mental illness. Many years ago the American Psychiatric Association considered gender dysphoria to be a mental illness. But that is no longer the case.

    Maybe I’m misreading the posts but how exactly is being trans the same as schizophrenia? Because that’s a completely new one to me.

    Here you go, from the Mayo Clinic.

    Symptoms
    Schizophrenia involves a range of problems with thinking (cognition), behavior and emotions. Signs and symptoms may vary, but usually involve delusions, hallucinations or disorganized speech, and reflect an impaired ability to function. Symptoms may include:

    • Delusions. These are false beliefs that are not based in reality. For example, you think that you're being harmed or harassed; certain gestures or comments are directed at you; you have exceptional ability or fame; another person is in love with you; or a major catastrophe is about to occur. Delusions occur in most people with schizophrenia.
