Restaurants Would Appreciate Gun Fondlers Leaving the Toys at Home

The last seat I'd want in 'the front of the house' at a restaurant would be next to some armed adrenaline/Open Carry Euphoria peoples.

So you can't smoke inside an American eatery, but feel free to bring your Glock or strap-on long guns out to supper with you. Or let a child kill with an Uzi in broad daylight.

Panera Bread is one of the companies that has been on the right side of reason. No matter the repercussions or lost sales, there's a conscience in those actions.

From Stltodaycom.

The company said it respects the rights of gun owners but doesn’t want firearms brought into its stores unless carried by “an authorized law enforcement officer.”

The move was applauded by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, an organization formed as a result of the Sandy Hook school shootings in Connecticut in 2012.

The group said Monday that Panera’s announcement came after months of talks.

“We are thrilled that after months of discussions between Panera and Moms Demand Action, Panera is taking a proactive position in favor of our families’ safety by putting a new gun policy in place,” Shannon Watts, the group’s founder, said in a statement.

“Moms are the consumers-in-chief of our households, and we will reward companies that take a stand for our families’ safety,” the group said.

Esquire had a terrific piece on the matter.

I would have thought that Georgia would be more enlightened than some western states about the dangerous consequences of allowing guns in bars and restaurants, and all it will take is a few bar owners and restaurateurs to test the law by posting signs saying “No Guns Allowed.” Until that happens, cancel my reservations in Atlanta, including at a restaurant called Gunshow, whose chef-owner, Kevin Gillespie, named the place as homage to his father, who took his young son for bonding experiences to gun shows on Sundays.

The Second Amendment is a reasonable one, but any reasonable person will wonder whether it was intended to promote the kind of arrogant license now being shoved through state legislatures. Reminds me of the lyrics in the song by the Charlie Daniels Band, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”:

What Man in His Right Mind Wants Four More Wives?

Of course, it's a question best posed for Orthodox Utah.

It's a great article, at Addicting Info, catch it all here, but these excerpts are a little scary. The Church of the Latter Day Saint$ has a whole lotta' growing up to do before they are truly inclusive.

Utah’s attorney general said Wednesday he was considering an appeal of a U.S. federal judge’s ruling that declared part of Utah’s bigamy law unconstitutional and which sided with the star of reality television show “Sister Wives” and his four wives.

Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes’ office said in a statement that attorneys were reviewing the ruling and could file an appeal in coming weeks.

Now I followed Big Love rather religiously when it ran through HBO the first time, and as much crazy that went on on that program, truth is always stranger than fiction. Hands down.

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups on Wednesday finalized a December ruling that struck down a section of the law that bars consenting adults from living together in a romantic arrangement and criminalizes their intimate sexual relationships.

And could you imagine the alimony figures? The Mormons are a 'plainer' people historically, but I think I'd wager that the Roman Catholic Church could go toe to toe for assets.

Only Pat Robertson -- and his Flock -- Would Denigrate Robin Williams

This is so far past Ick that new adjectives need forming and disseminating.

But then again, Pat Robertson's middle name is Ick.

Robertson brings it back to liberal sin and excess every time, but targeting the revered and only recently passed Robin Williams was a Christian Slime move of the first water.

Don't you just want to move next-door to that?

Here are a couple of Robertson doozies:

'There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the Constitution. It is a lie of the Left and we are not going to take it anymore.'

'The flooding of New Orleans is a sign that God is tired of seeing his creation mocked by the Mardi Gras and its perverted display of debauchery and exposed breasts.'

Robertson has a catalogue of incidents (or perhaps a roomful of binders) that should have had him certified years and years and years and years and years ago. He's stuck somewhere between 1776 and 1945.

Sad, really … until you think about how many millions (perhaps billions) Robertson and his ilk of Ick have put the tithing squeeze on their subscribers/bank-roll/churchgoers to attain.

She Doubled Dowd

dowd
Maureen Dowd's poison pen is firmly fixated on President Obama again as she adds another coat of resentment onto her 'great disappointment' … she expected what, JFK and Nelson Mandela combined to sit in the Oval Office with nary a visibly difficult domestic or global challenge ahead of them?

The Dowd must have given cannabis gummy bears a whirl. Excerpts below and find the entire column here at The NY Times.

WASHINGTON — As he has grown weary of Washington, Barack Obama has shed parts of his presidency, like drying petals falling off a rose.

He left the explaining and selling of his signature health care legislation to Bill Clinton. He outsourced Congress to Rahm Emanuel in the first term, and now doesn’t bother to source it at all. He left schmoozing, as well as a spiraling Iraq, to Joe Biden. Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser, comes across as more than a messagemeister. As the president floats in the empyrean, Rhodes seems to make foreign policy even as he’s spinning it.

Now why Dowd eviscerated the Dowd's bitterness toward Rev. Al Sharpton takes a bit more probing. Apart from Maureen's MO is frequently being petty, condescending, dismissive and almost personally insulting. Still from the Times.

Once civil rights leaders drew their power from their unimpeachable moral authority. Now, being a civil rights leader can be just another career move, a good brand … the one thing it was impossible to imagine, back in the giddy days of the 2009 inauguration, as Americans basked in their open-mindedness and pluralism, was that the first African-American president would outsource race.

When The Dowd is openly hating on the Democrat sitting president … buckle up, it's going to be a wild ride.
