Agitprop Coffee. A study in impending failure.

 I wish there was a way to bet on the failure of a new small business. A brand new coffee shop opened nearby. I do pay extra for organic/fair trade/single origin good coffee. However I'm not going to pay to get preached at.

Agitprop coffee. 

Actual name is a synonym. Details obscured for obvious reasons.


Advantages: 

City it's in is VERY blue.

Prices on the menu board are reasonable.

Bad: 

Not open late enough to get bar crowd traffic.

Limited metered parking.

There is a Dunkin Donuts a block over that's open much later and has a drive through.

There is a coffee shop that is co-located in a vape store two blocks over.

100% Vegan restaurant that serves coffee, Another hipster/vegan coffee shop, McDs, STARBUCKS all within 5min on the same road. Not to mention lots of restaurants. 

 

Unless it's a tax shelter they are going to be gone as soon as the owners run out of money.

Pageing Morpheus. Mr. Morpheus to the white courtesy phone.

 Ohio recently reformed their knife laws. So Automatics are now legal to carry. To celebrate I ordered myself one.
I was going to get a really nice Benchmade, but somehow talked myself into a $50 "starter" Boker auto.
First one sent out they said was delivered on a Saturday at 9am. Odd...Mail always arrives in the afternoon-evening on my street. No knife. Had to wait until Monday to file a complaint with USPS.
USPS said it was delivered pinky swear and closed the ticket. Made a point to check my confirmation email to make sure it had the correct address. (this is important)

Had to wait another week before the shop would send a replacement. OK, replacement on the way. It doesn't arrive with a 10am supposed delivery time. Wait a day or two. Contact the vendor again. Vendor says the first knife was returned to sender and the second one is marked as delivered. I'm mighty SUS! and I start checking.

Somehow the address is now the old address when I used to live down the street a LONG time ago. Went over there and got the second knife. Did not see any black cats or leggy brunettes in leather to my disappointment.

Wisdom from a cookie.

 Our duty, as men and women, is to proceed as if limits to our ability did not exist.

The google is mighty sus

 From what I've been able to gather my password was part of a "non google" breach. So have not been able to access/post on this blog. This is suspicious.


So far I have heard of several groups up to President Trump's official accounts being suspended or banned. 

When your ideals cannot stand criticism, and you wield the ban hammer in censorship mode you have lost the argument.
