I am writing this post using an Apple MacBook Pro and I have, personally and as a businessman, spent well over one-hundred thousand dollars on Apple's products. But, I certainly do not like Apple's recent behavior. Hollywood's Roger Simon puts it well:
Roger's entire piece is here. He also makes the point that people like Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, has more money than sense. He made his money so young and is so insulated that all he knows is virtue signaling and doesn't even understand the wider implications of his actions.
Steve Jobs, for all of his faults, never would have done this.
Google (real motto, "Don't Be Evil") has allegedly tweaked its search engine to make it more difficult to find conservative sites. Facebook...well, go to the posting below.
Microsoft used to believe it was invincible. So, did most economists and analysts. That certainly wasn't the case.
There is a pretty good case that some of this may be a violation of anti-trust laws. But, I'd rather the companies re-think their anti-American values positions and rescind them voluntarily.
