As usual, give the Progressives/Liberals a modicum of space and they’ll fill it up with crap that has no bearing on the reality of current important events.
Over 2,000 People Sign Petition To Retain “Stallions” As A Mascot
A few days ago, I wrote about how a high school in Kentucky had its mascot changed from “Stallions” to “TBD” after a mere 200 people signed a petition claiming that “Stallions” was an offensive, sexist pick. Now, more than ten times that number have signed an rebuttal petition asking the district to keep “Stallions” as the mascot for Frederick Douglass High School in Lexington. [snip]
It’s a weird world when two high school freshmen (or should I say “first years“?) have more common sense than fully-grown adults. A school doesn’t choose a mascot to marginalize or offend part of the student body, and to suggest it does is ludicrous. There’s nothing wrong with “Stallions” as a mascot, especially for a school in Kentucky that’s literally being built on a farm where stallions were raised. Everybody who is upset over this needs to take a massive chill pill.
Given that the district was so willing to submit to the demands of a mere 200 people, I wonder what they’ll have to say about 2,000 people telling them that they’re out of their minds.
What a major circle jerk. These clowns have nothing better to do than cause a disturbance. Why not just name the female variations of the sports teams, ‘The Mares”.
Deputy: Man stole work tools, then accidentally called boss
Authorities say a man stole tools from his workplace at an auto repair shop and then accidentally called his boss as he tried to sell them.
Citing an arrest report, the Times West Virginian (http://bit.ly/2hWxGir ) says the owner of the repair shop in the community of Millersville told deputies that one of his employees recently called him about tools he was selling. The owner said the employee immediately hung up after he realized who he had called.
Deputies say they recovered the stolen tools after they obtained a warrant to search the vehicle and home of the worker, identified as 37-year-old Shawn Nelson Furner of Fairmont. [snip]
Not too swift in the criminal department, wonder how he was doing when actually working. Something says there’s a deficit in that department too.
NYC culinary staple China Fun shutters, blaming over-regulation
What left a bad taste in the mouths of its owners and loyal patrons was the restaurant’s sudden Jan. 3 closing, blamed by management on suffocating government demands.
“The climate for small businesses like ours in New York have become such that it’s difficult to justify taking risks and running — nevermind starting — a legitimate mom-and-pop business,” read a letter posted by the owners in the restaurant’s front door. [snip]
Albert Wu, whose parents Dorothea and Felix owned the eatery, said the endless paperwork and constant regulation that forced the shutdown accumulated over the years.
“When we started out in 1991, the lunch special was $4 a plate,” he recalled. “Now it’s $10, $12. The cost of doing business is just too onerous.”
Wu cited one regulation where the restaurant was required to provide an on-site break room for workers despite its limited space. And he blamed the amount of paperwork now required — an increasingly difficult task for a non-chain businesses.
“In a one-restaurant operation like ours, you’re spending more time on paperwork than you are trying to run your business,” he griped. [snip]
The only small places left to eat in Communist run cities will be places like the Government approved “Socialist Peoples Noodle House” or “The Organic Tofu Vegan Diner”.
