Ouch.. NOT good..
Wow.. Our tax dollars hard at work.
How great is this?! lol Its been a while since I was in Monterey. But, next time I’m there, I’ll definitely have to stop by the Old Fisherman’s Grotto. With so many unruly and undisciplined kids today, how can ya blame the owner of this (or any other) restaurant for posting policies like this? Going out on the town in Monterey is an EXPENSIVE proposition, and people want to have a nice dinner and not have to hear someone else’s kids making all sorts of noise while they eat. I can appreciate that. And hey, if ya don’t like it, you can go always somewhere else, and give another restaurant the business. That’s the beauty of America; freedom and choices. And, that freedom goes both ways. The owner of the restaurant should have EVERY right to serve, or NOT serve, whomever he/she wants. And, according to the owner, he isn’t banning kids; just the unruly, crying, loud ones. Fair enough.
This is so outrageous and offensive, its hard to put into words. Its one thing to get your cultural training, pamphlets and so on when you go to another country. Those of us who have been there, and done that, have gone through that. No big deal. We endeavor to build bridges, and be respectful of our hosts, when in their country. But, for a Brigade Commander (full colonel) to tell his troops that are here “stateside” to be culturally sensitive to Muslims in AMERICA and not eat in their presence? Huh? Are you kidding me?! When was the last time a commander admonished troops to learn about, and be more tolerant of, Christians? I’ve never heard such a thing. This is just more political correctness being forced upon the military. COL Glasz should be relieved of his command for this embarrassingly poor judgment call on his part. Unreal..
Thus far, Hamas has not respected any of the previous cease-fires. I doubt they’ll abide by this one. But, guess we’ll see. This won’t begin til tomorrow (Friday) morning at 8am EST (6am MDT).. Developing..
This youtube video is hilarious!! Its a few years old. But, a friend sent it to me, and I just HAD to post it. You may recall a few years ago when an Muslim group wanted to build a mosque near Ground Zero in NYC right where 9/11 happened. It was a breathtakingly offensive notion and was an affront to the families of those who died on 9/11. Greg Gutfeld offers HIS proposal of how we should have responded to that group. Excellent!! 🙂
This is actually HUGE news in France; a country historically known for being off the charts socialist. They riot in Paris when they don’t have months and months of vacation. But, that laziness has finally caught up with them, and the people are coming to their collective senses, realizing that gosh..socialism doesn’t work…something that Obama doesn’t get. So, the pendulum is swinging the other direction to the right. That said, Le Pen’s “National Front” party really is not as “far right” as the very socialist/liberal European media would have you believe. Yeah, they’re for a bit harsher law enforcement than France is normally accustomed to. And, NF is for cracking down on illegal immigration (imagine that!). But, they support Israel’s right to defend itself, and see Iran as a potential threat. Makes sense to me! And Marine and her NF party support the current socialized (i.e. government run) health care, education, and transportation industries/sectors of society. So, hardly a “far right” party, if ya stop and think about it. Marine is very charismatic and popular. And with Nick Sarkozy struggling with charges of corruption, this might be Marine’s moment. Stay tuned…
