They are determined to have a diverse culture. Those politically correct Liberals can't even remember the days we sportsmen thought so highly of their stores that we couldn't imagine going hunting or to buy a quality sporting firearm without a visit to their retail establishments. If you waltz in their door today they can tell you about their favorite latté, tofu of coagulating soy milk, bean curds, Northern Plains goat cheese and their apparel doesn't contribute to climate change.
