the business of politics

This morning I was reading this article on NPR:

It’s about businesses who put their political views on display. I didn’t really think much of it because I rarely ever run across such a situation. Except the one time I gave this sushi restaurant a 1-star on yelp because they always had FauxNews on (I don’t know if it was because of me, but I am happy to report they no longer watch FauxNews, and I have revised my rating to 4-star)

During lunch, I took my car to get smogged. As I walked into the EZ smog, I could hear talk radio was blaring through the radio. As the front desk guy was helping me check-in, I can hear that it’s not just talk radio. It’s Rush fucking Limbaugh. I honestly have never heard Rush in the wild before, this was my first time.

I was shocked. I stood there for a moment not knowing what to do. It took me a full 2-3 minutes standing there to decide I wanted to take my business else where. I just couldn’t bear the thought of supporting a business that supported an asshat like that.

I politely asked for my keys back and drove off to another smog place.
