In a storyline that aptly echoes a Hunter S. Thompson plot intertwined with Tim Dorsey’s irreverence, a miniscule percentage of the fiscal industry spectrum is recognizing that Biden and his lackeys, or lackey leadership lackeying Biden, are the historically some of the best indirect gun sales force in history.
As with the prophetic prostitute protagonists smuggled onto the “zoo plane”, or whisked into the depths of the Everglades as a willing vintage muscle car passengers, the antiheros of the accountant sorority are unlikely advocates for basic rights, or at least the pursuit of reason. While financial behemoths, including major banks and credit card companies have ganged up in a shimmering flash mob digitally driven social justice riot disguised as a rally against the gun marketplace. The Walnut Creek, California Nordstrom will never be the same after enduring the onslaught of looters elevating a social media meetup into a savage attack against the retail outlet in absence of armed guards and law enforcement. The trickle down effect of law-abiding citizens and businesses being ceaselessly punished through the wallet by the dishonorable roll of the pecuniary league is a widespread and growing stain as the fundamental freedoms bleed out on the foulness of a dive bar women’s room laminate floor somewhere in the vortex of the Rust belt.
The brand-name accounting software giant Intuit, reneged on directives launched by itself and fellow financial brethren targeting gun owners and manufacturers, in retracting a corporate ban focused on those exercising their Second Amendment rights. Although the infusion of common sense into a minute sliver of the world of big tech would supplement the storylines of Thompson and Dorsey and the surreal consequences endured by board of director members interfacing hammers with swinger parties and the inevitable collective indifference to the safety word, the creators of the popular Quickbooks accounting software, are at least headlining the classic definition of damage control. Earlier this year, Intuit implemented policy disallowing gun retailers from using its payroll software, which prompted certain firms affected by the draconian measures to file complaints through elected officials. Allegedly, certain politicians on both sides listen, as Ted Cruz and colleagues launched an oversight investigation into the business practices of prodigious financial organisms.
After it was discovered that Intuit’s banking partners, Bank of America, and JPMorgan pressured the tech consortium to adopt directives aimed at the firearms industry, the accounting software creators dropped the noxious amendments to its “terms and conditions”. While the prohibitive business legislation only existed for nearly months, the scandal indicates that the financial world is still working with gun control activists in compromising reasonable self-defense, and harming clients outside of the guns marketplace, as businesses such as the Nordstrom in Walnut Creek are left vulnerable by the enablement of criminals.
As anti-gun politicians continue with aggressive campaigns to disarm Americans, spearheaded by governors on the Left coast and the Northeast, one has to wonder how much funding and influence is coming from the financial world, even though gun sales are increasing especially among minority communities. Is there a deliberate attempt to fuel chaos in ultimately grasping to instill control?
With the prevalence of special interest causes spiraling out of control, it will take a lot more effort than a group of hybrid responsible accountants to take a stand against insanity to preserve traditions that nullify the damage caused by extremists engaging in societal engineering.
