  1. Thank you, Rand, for giving me a good laugh.

    The nitwit didn’t register the name. My guess as to that is this was more a scam attempt than him actually intending to sell pillows.

    The cost to register a name is around $300, BTW. Any venture that had even a notion of being serious would do that first.

    1. Of course, he has no clue about what it takes to start a business…

      His first goal? Asking for a unionized pillow factory that he could buy…

      Harvard should be thinking of cancelling his tuition grants

  2. It would have been really surprising if he had actually brought this forward. There’s no talent in spouting hot air, building something is what takes all the work and ability.

  3. It certainly failed as a business venture to make and sell pillows. And that might have been what Hogg was actually up to in the very beginning. As the difficulty of starting a real business began to dawn on him, and potential investors began to see how ill equipped he was to create such a thing, he took the money and ran. Creating a business is not something you do on a whim.

  4. Hard to sell pillows when the owner has likely bitten every one of them first.

  5. It remains funny.

    But I want to note that PJM got the hot take wrong about the logo like everyone else.

    It was not “$200 to make us a logo real quick”.

    It was $200 to “check the spacing on our logo”; a panic check for the kerning and such.

    Which really IS something you can do in an hour and that $200/hr is fine pro-grade pay for.

    (The whole saga is super stupid; we don’t have to make up things to mock Hogg for.)

    1. $200 is not much money.

      Try to get an auto body shop to check the kerning on the model-name decoration on your car for that money,

  6. Understanding the Manifesto on his website is of the utmost importance, on many levels. First, it is a “Mission and Vision Statement” that a hugely successful, going concern could afford to put out if it had the substantial reserves to last its executives until they put it out of business. It isn’t anything on which one could start or build a business. Second, the fact that Boss Hogg could put something like this out right now means that he not only doesn’t have any concept of what is required to build a hugely (or any size) successful company, but is unaware of the fact that he needs to have such a concept. To him, it’s like quantum tunneling: just imagine what you ultimately want, and you can tunnel through the intervening potential barrier while doing no work. He sees only the end in which he can bask, and has no idea as to how to get there – or even start to get there.

    This is a kid who has never had a job of any kind, I’m betting. He certainly has no clue as to how to start and build a company, successful or otherwise.

    1. He doesn’t need a clue as long as he is useful to those who are promoting the current narrative. The moment he stops being useful (any nanosecond now), he joins Cindy Sheehan in the memory hole.

      1. I was surprised that whatshername who was briefly a leftist heroine for wearing sneakers while talking did not go into the shoe business.

        1. Are people confusing Cindy Sheehan with Wendy Davis, although both persons had a Texas presence.

          Cindy Sheehan is a Gold Star Mom. Ms. Sheehan was anti-war or at least anti-Iraq War. Her son enlisted and died in combat.

          I believe recent presidents have all made phone calls to family members of our fallen military, and George W Bush made such a call to Cindy Sheehan. She may have even met with the President Bush, but she was dissatisfied with how she was treated or maybe she wanted an opportunity to further express her opposition to the war.

          She took up camping near President Bush’s Texas residence in an effort to get another meeting, but Mr. Bush held firm that he had met with her and was not going to accede to her demand. Judge this how you will, but that is pretty much the story.

          Wendy Davis is a pro-choice activist and a one-time candidate for Governor of Texas. She wore pink shoes as to call attention to her candidacy and pro-choice activism.
