Tulsa Chipotle Restaurant Kicks Out Annoying Liberals for Whining About Guns

open carry picture 500x200

David Risselada, Tulsa, Oklahoma – Oklahoma Open Carry had received word that MDA was going to go to the local Chipotle’s for lunch, so they decided to meet them there. Chipotle restaurants in Oklahoma have officially taken the position that they would rather see people leave their guns at home, but they won’t ask you to leave if you don’t; after all, in Oklahoma it is legal to openly carry, so they at least respect the law and your rights.

Moms Demand Action on the other hand, seemed to be demanding a little much on this Saturday afternoon as they approached management and asked them to throw OKOCA members out of the restaurant because they were “offended” by the presence of guns.

To be honest, we were expecting this, and we figured that we would be asked to leave; but what happened next was nothing less than awesome. The manager refused to kick out OKOCA and even gave them free drinks. MDA activists then proceeded to take pictures of the gun owners and attempted to portray them as intimidating and threatening. The management wasn’t having any of it; he threw Moms Demand Action out of his store!

I conducted an interview with the manager, and while I asked him if I could quote him directly, he asked that I do not. He said that he wasn’t going to have people treating paying customers rudely in his store. They simply do not allow customers to take pictures of other customers; it’s a “zero tolerance” policy if you will. He also said that he has no position on open carry, and he understands that it is legal to carry in the state. Finally, he acknowledged that people behaving in the manner as MDA had in his store was actually more harmful to people than the act of lawfully carrying a firearm.

Seattle residents shocked that raising minimum wage cost people jobs

unemployed-busy 500x200

At the start of the year, the Seattle suburb of SeaTac raised the area’s minimum wage to $15, and the consequences are now starting to be felt. And it’s not just the unions who championed the effort, or those who still have jobs, that are feeling them.

It’s starting to look like the business owners, who resisted the law due to the complexities within it or the prospect of higher labor costs, were right.

Over the last few months,  a few things have happened:

  • Managers have taken more responsibilities on themselves, instead of hiring more workers.
  • Businesses have laid off workers, or eliminated their plans to hire more.
  • Area parking now comes with an added “living-wage surcharge.”
  • Hotels have cut employee benefits, free food, and overtime.

Shocking: when bad ideas are put into place, there are consequences.

The one thing that you won’t read in any of the articles published since the law took effect: stories about businesses hiring more people. Business owners have reported a marked increase in job applications, presumably from those hoping to benefit from the higher minimum wage, but that has not translated into an increase in employment.

Harry Reid’s Crusade Against the Koch Brothers Threatens Your Free Speech

Harry Reid 500x200

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has promised the Senate will take up a proposed constitutional amendment this year that would radically alter the First Amendment.

The Senate resolution would allow Congress to limit fundraising and spending on election campaigns and independent political speech. Reid and others insist restricting the amount of money that may be raised and spent on political speech is not the same as limiting speech. That’s like saying that limiting the amount of newsprint a newspaper can buy does not limit its speech.

Having lost the battle at the Supreme Court, Reid and his cohorts are now pushing this constitutional amendment to reverse decisions—including Citizens United v. FEC and McCutcheon v. FEC—that protect the rights of Americans to speak their minds about elected officials and candidates and to engage in the political process.

Shutting down conservative speech certainly appears to be a motivating factor behind this push to amend the First Amendment. Reid has given many interviews and speeches on the Senate floor demonizing the Charles and David Koch for “dumping unseemly amounts of money” into politics, “rigg[ing] the system” and “trying to buy the country.” Of course, he never mentions efforts by big Democratic contributors, such as George Soros and the SEIU. Imagine the audacity of those “un-American” and “shrewd businessmen” (Reid’s words) who would back candidates and causes they believe will make America better.

Obama to propose new EPA rules because we haven’t lost nearly enough jobs

President Obama showing concern over massive job losses due to overly strict EPA policies

President Obama showing concern over massive job losses due to overly strict EPA policies

The Obama administration is set to announce a rule Monday to limit carbon emissions in thousands of fossil-fuel burning plants across the country, a cornerstone of President Obama’s climate-change agenda and his first-term promise to reduce such emissions by 17 percent by 2020.

The Environmental Protection Agency will ask existing plants to cut pollution by 30 percent by 2030, according to people familiar with the proposal who shared the details with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, since they have not been officially released.

The draft rule, which sidesteps Congress, will go into effect in June 2016, following a one-year comment period. States will then be responsible for executing the rule with some flexibility.

However, lawmakers in several states already are trying to blunt the impact on aging coal-fired power plants that feed electricity to millions of consumers.

It remains to be seen whether new measures passed by the states will amount to mere political symbolism or actually temper what’s expected to be an aggressive federal effort to reduce the country’s reliance on coal. But either way, states likely will play a pivotal role, because federal clean air laws leave it up to each state to come up its own plan for complying with the emission guidelines.

Without waiting to see what Obama proposes, governors in Kansas, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia have signed laws directing their environmental agencies to develop their own carbon emission plans that consider the costs of compliance at individual power plants. Similar measures recently passed in Missouri and are pending in the Louisiana and Ohio legislatures.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce argues that the rule will kill jobs and close power plants across the country. The group is releasing a study that finds the rule will result in the loss of 224,000 jobs every year through 2030 and impose $50 billion in annual costs.

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson Explains Why the Founding Fathers Were So Great

philrobertson 500x200

“They were godly men, the vast majority of them,” Robertson said. “I just read about them and I’m thinking, well, I’m no different than they are. They loved God. They carried their Bibles. They follow the lord Jesus. So I’m thinking, I’m like them.”

Robertson’s religious beliefs sparked a controversy in December, prompting A&E to temporarily suspend him from the hit TV show. After widespread backlash, the network reversed the decision. In the Hannity interview, Robertson responded to his critics:

I would never judge or condemn anyone. The Almighty, that’s his job. [I] just give them the good news. Some of them kick and scream about it. We just give it to them.

Robertson, a devout Christian, wasn’t always a man of faith. He has said his previous lifestyle was full of “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.” That changed in his late 20s—and saved his marriage with Kay Robertson.

“I lived with the wicked for 28 years. I’ve been with the godly for 40,” he told Hannity. “Trust me, this last 40—the contrast has been astounding between the two.”

Wait! Obama did what this weekend?!?

OBAMA-CAPTURED-SOLDIER_full_500x200

Violating the law, President Obama released 5 of the most violent terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay in exchange for a US soldier that had deserted and join the Taliban. And this isn’t from The Onion!

From The Weekly Standard

The Obama administration announced today that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who has been held by the Taliban for several years, has been freed from his captors. Unfortunately, America is not the only party in this war that is committed to leaving no man behind. So are the Taliban and other al Qaeda-linked groups. But the president did not say who America exchanged for Bergdahl: five of the most dangerous Taliban commanders in U.S. custody.

There are good reasons why the Taliban has long wanted the five freed from Gitmo. All five are among the Taliban’s top commanders in U.S. custody and are still revered in jihadist circles.

Two of the five have been wanted by the UN for war crimes. And because of their prowess, Joint Task Force-Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO) deemed all five of them “high” risks to the U.S. and its allies.

However as distasteful as this looks, it’s even worse.

From the CS Monitor

A federal statute states that the secretary of Defense must notify Congress 30 days before any transfer of prisoners from Guantánamo Bay. The law allows Congress to have a say on whether the detainees could be a threat to national security.

The Bergdahl swap involved the transfer of five mid-to-high-level detainees – including a former Taliban deputy defense minister – to Qatar, yet the White House did not tell Congress what was going on until after the exchange had been made in Afghanistan Saturday.

How could Mr. Obama essentially ignore the law?

They ask as if he hasn’t been ignoring the law for his entire administration.
