I'm sure no one had an example campaign that worked so well before the 2016 election where Trump's strategy was successful, yet here we are.

politics and commerce are different.  in politics, any support over 50% is superfluous - there is no penalty to alienating 40% of the population.  in commerce, any potential customer you alienate is a cost.

I don't think that's true.  Determing which audience you can  alienate is an essential factor in successful marketing.  This is something the antiPC crowd constantly talks about.

Counter examples will of course exist, not every company will use this strategy (or effectively).  I don't quite think the Hogg example really matches though. 

PC, anti-PC, anti-anti-PC, anti-anti-anti-PC, are all tribes to exploit for gain.

All you have to do is get your target group to feel like they are sticking it to/ triggering the sjws by buying your product.  This has recently become an extremely successful strategy, it will be used in marketing larger commercial products as well ( I am pretty sure it's being used already by smart local companies).

Having good universities is not really a priority for most kansans.

chingon, do you think an explicit or implicit racist (anti black) message would help sell beer in 2018?  afaik, the commercial was solely used in the us, but i don't actually know that for sure.
Yes I do, if done cleverly enough.

you're saying a well-disguised implicit message, not saying a humorously presented explicit message, if i understand you correctly?

Could be either.

I think it's clear that they're saying "lighter beer (and skin!  ;) ) is better."

i'm going to abandon my planned line of interrogation to follow this up - you think it is not just plausible, not just probable, but demonstrable that a for-profit, consumer-facing company intentionally inserted a message about the preferability of certain skin colors in communication directed at their customers?

(not addressing the specifics on this ad or company)

I think many companies will insert whatever message they feel will maximize sales. If you felt that the strongest portion of your customer base would react positively to a racist/sexist/bigoted (explicit or not) message, of course you would insert it.  Historically this has been the case.

Enrollment at 4 year institutions has needed an autocorrection for a long time. Glad tech schools are getting the bulk. Supply of 4-year students was/is too high. I want everyone to get a great education, but that doesn't have to come from a 4-year college.
That is true, a lot of people really aren't looking for or interested in a well-rounded university-style education, but rather a training/job placement program which technical schools are great at.   This leads to lots of resentment in both directions.  Maybe Kansas needs to lead the way with a large technical school that has a minor league(ish) type sports program attached to it which would meet most people in the state's needs.

World bacon crumbles on top be too much?  I think it might. 

Side of apple butter to dip the crusts...

I was hoping that was gravy.  A pizza made with biscuit dough and covered with sausage gravy.


i've been noodling on the biscuits and gravy pizza all afternoon
i think the best way to do it would be- smash out the biscuit dough into a crust, layer with fried over medium eggs, layer with sausage gravy

was planning on making b's & g's on sunday, maybe i'll fire up a biscuits and gravy pizza instead
This is going to come as a shock, but good Chicago style pizza crust is what we're looking at here.
