Whataburger in Lewisville, Texas in Tells Two Police Officers the Restaurant had a Policy of not Serving Cops
THE WAR ON POLICE CONTINUES …
A cashier at a Whataburger restaurant in Lewisville, Texas finds themselves in the frying pan as two police officers were allegedly told that the restaurant had a policy of not serving cops. REALLY? What the hell is going on in this country where we are continually seeing these acts of disrespect from restaurants where they are either refusing to serve police officers or in some cases let them use the restrooms? Two north Texas officers, Michael Magovern and Cameron Beckham, were working off-duty security at a construction site when they decided to grab something to eat and entered the Whataburger. The men were in uniform when they entered the restaurant and before he even got to the counter the man said, “We don’t serve police officers.” UNREAL. The manager tried to back peddle from his initial comment and apologize, but the damage had been done.
I guess we know how many people feel and the disrespect of people. I wonder what would happen if this same employee was denied service? Needless to say, the individual who made this pathetic comment as been fired. Free speech has consequences, doesn’t it?
A Whataburger location in Lewisville, Texas is under fire after a cashier allegedly told two police officers that the restaurant had a policy of not serving cops.
According to a local Fox affiliate, officers Michael Magovern and Cameron Beckham stopped by the location while working night shifts at a nearby construction site. But before they could order, the man working the counter told them, “We don’t serve police officers.”
Given that Whataburger is a Texas staple– and Texas is not exactly a hotspot of anti-police furor– the incident received widespread coverage in local media and flooded Whataburger’s Facebook with angry comments. “This is my favorite place to eat and to hear that one of your establishments refused service to an officer is appalling,” reads one complaint. “I hope y’all can make it right…”
“We were appalled to hear of an employee refusing service to two officers, as we have proudly served first responders across our system for decades. As soon as we heard of this isolated incident, we began our own internal investigation overnight. The employee that refused service is no longer employed with Whataburger. We’ve also invited the officers back today so we can apologize in person and make this right.”
NBC Fires Donald Trump for Un-PC Comments on Illegal Immigration But Keeps News Anchor Lying Brian Williams
NBC TO DONALD TRUMP, YOU’RE FIRED … WELCOME TO LIBERAL INTOLERANCE AND THE MSM DOUBLE STANDARD.
Look what happens when you dare take a position that goes against the liberal MSM. NBC has cut ties with Donald Trump following the comments the Donald made over a week ago when he announced his candidacy for the president of the United States. NBC stated that the network will no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture with Trump. NBC stated in a press release that, “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.” Hmm, really? NBC has respect and dignity for all people, who knew? Unless you are a Conservative, member of the Tea Party, or anyone who dare disagree with the liberal agenda.
NBC is ending its business relationship with Donald Trump over his recent comments about Mexican immigrants.
“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” NBC said in a statement. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”
The network will no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture with Trump, the statement added. Its relationship with “Celebrity Apprentice” will continue, as Trump ceased his involvement with the reality show during his presidential bid.
The real estate mogul and 2016 presidential candidate has faced criticism for comments he made during his announcement speech earlier this month.
Donald Trump: NBC will stand behind ‘lying’ Brian Williams, but it won’t stand behind me
What about NBC’s values regarding telling the truth? I guess that is not high on their list or a cornerstone of their values. Isn’t it quite telling about NBC that they would fire Donald Trump for speaking his opinion, yet NBC kept news anchor, “lying” Brian William after it had been documented that he had lied too many times to keep track while reporting the news. But that is OK and keeping in line with NBC values. Because that showed dignity and respect. This is the same network that also employees Al Sharpton, who has made fabricated comments as well.
SORRY WALMART, IGNORANCE IS NOT AN EXCUSE … I THOUGHT WALMART SAID THEY DON’T WANT TO OFFEND ANYONE?
So the Confederate flag is worse than the ISIS one, really? It appears that is the case when Chuck Netzhammer, a resident of Slidell, LA, was able to get a cake made at Walmart featuring an ISIS battle flag but was rejected when he asked for a Confederate flag cake. In the wake of the death of 9 black church goers in Charleston, SC at the hands of a racist, Walmart removed all traces of the Confederate battle flag from its stores and websites and stated they did so because they don’t want to “offend” anyone. I guess they meant everyone but ISIS. How can you not know what the ISIS flag looks like, it has been in the news over the past several years more than the Confederate flag.
Wal-Mart is apologizing for a store in Slidell, La., which refused to bake a cake designed as the Confederate battle flag but accepted a request to bake a cake that looked like the ISIS battle flag.
Chuck Netzhammer, a local resident, presented his story in a YouTube video Friday, saying, “Alright, Wal-Mart, you’ve got some explaining to do. I went to go buy a cake from you all the other day with this image on it and y’all wouldn’t do it. I went back yesterday and managed to get the ISIS battle flag [cake instead].”
I wonder if WALMART will make a Nazi flag cake?
How can you be that uninformed that you don’t know the battle flag of the biggest, most vicious terrorist killers on the planet? What cave does this baker live in? Who finds this amazing in a post-911 world that a Confederate flad from the 1860′s is looked upon as worse than a radical Islamist battle flag whose followers are beheading and burning alive their victims? But that is what you get when the MSM has an agenda.
The Daily caller was contacted by Randy Hargrove, a spokesman for Wal-Mart, who said in an email, “Our local store made a mistake. The cake in the video should not have been made and we apologize.”
Hargrove later explained to TheDC, “We made the decision to stop selling Confederate flag related items promoting the flag’s image. For that reason we did not make the cake. [Netzhammer] brought in the other image of ISIS and really, what happened, was our associate didn’t recognize what that image was and what it meant or it wouldn’t have been made.”
eBay to Ban Sale of Confederate Flag Merchandise … Really, They Missed A Lot and They Seemed to Have Forgot to Remove the 2008 Hillary Clinton Campaign Buttons
This is what the slippery slope of censorship looks like … Its one thing for a State not to fly it at the Capitol, but now comes the purge of all things with the Confederate flag.
The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton and the Confederate Flag …
It would appear that eBay has jumped on the band wagon to ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise. According to eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff, “We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism.” REALLY? Because as of this morning, a simple search on eBay of “Confederate flag” brought up over 10 pages, 50 items on each page, of Confederate flag merchandise. So what is next, pretending like Civil War never took place and the scrubbing of Southern history?
I personally think slavery was one of our darkest hours in the United States and this existence of racism and bigotry is reprehensible; however, I find the exploitation of a heinous crime disgusting as well. This country has made great strides from the days of slavery, more so than many other countries where it continues today. I am not a fan of the Confederate flag, I am not from the South, I am more of a “Don’t Tread on Me” flag fan. But how long will it be before that symbol offends people? Hell, we have people in this country that are offended by the American flag, Old Glory.
How About this One?
Even Hillary Clinton chimed in on South Carolina’s removal of the Confederate flag from the Capitol building, but maybe Hillary would like to discuss her 2008 Hillary Clinton campaign buttons with the Confederate flag on them complete with Stars and Bars. By the way, that button is for sale on eBay. Oh, but that’s different, that was 8 years ago, what difference does it make. Right? In the video below Hillary Clinton said, “recognizing it as a symbol of our nation’s racist past, that has no place in our present or our future.” Did she feel that way when Bill Clinton signed a Law Honoring Confederacy in Arkansas Flag? Then comes Hillary’s anti-free speech comment, “It shouldn’t fly there, it shouldn’t fly anywhere.” Sorry folks, as long as people are allowed to burn the American flag as an example of free speech, flying a Confederate flag has to be allowed as well. You don’t get to allow one and not the other.
Hillary Clinton Says she appreciates the removal of Confederate Flag, but what about her campaign buttons?
eBay will ban the sale of Confederate flag merchandise, the auction site announced Tuesday, in a decision that follows in the steps of major retailers like Walmart and Sears.
“We have decided to prohibit Confederate flags, and many items containing this image, because we believe it has become a contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism,” eBay spokesperson Johnna Hoff said in an email to CNN. “This decision is consistent with our long-standing policy that prohibits items that promote or glorify hatred, violence and racial intolerance.”
Hoff added that the company continually monitors and evaluates its 800 million products on its site to ensure that they are “consistent with our core purpose.”
The company’s decision mirrors that of Walmart and Sears, which have also removed Confederate flag products from their stores.
The controversial flag has come under intense scrutiny following a racially motivated mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, that left nine African-Americans dead in a historic church. On Monday, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley also called on the Confederate flag to be taken down from the state’s capitol grounds.
GDP Grew 0.2% For Q1 2015 >>> GDP Shrank 0.7% For Q1 2015.
The GDP was originally said to have grown at a meager 0.2% for the first quarter of 2015 back in April. That was bad enough, however, it gets worse. The GDP was revised down to -0.7%. That means that the economy actually shrank by 0.7%. There was no growth. Way to go Barack Obama with your lousy economic plan that has done nothing but make money for the Wall Street ultra-rich. The GDP in Q4 2014 was 2.6%. It would appear we are headed in the wrong direction. The report was the government’s second estimate of first-quarter GDP. It will publish a final estimate in June. Wow, it may actually get revised to an even worse number.
A tax cut or reduction of regulation is certainly not on the table for this socialist president. Of course Obama and his minions will point to the unemployment number of 5.4% for the uninformed in America. The reality is that unemployment is in double digits.
The U.S. economy went into reverse in the first three months of this year as a severe winter and a widening trade deficit took a harsher toll than initially thought.
The overall economy as measured by the gross domestic product contracted at an annual rate of 0.7 percent in the January-March period, the Commerce Department reported Friday.
The revised figure, weaker than the government’s initial estimate of a meager 0.2 percent growth rate, reflects a bigger trade gap and slower consumer spending. It marked the first decline since a 2.1 percent contraction in the first three months of 2014, a slump that was also blamed on winter weather.

CEO TELLS EMPLOYEES NEW MINIMUM WAGE WILL BE $70, 000 AND IT WASN’T APRIL FOOL’S DAY …
Gravity Payments CEO Dan Price announced to his employees that the new company minimum wage will be $70,000. The stunned employees of the Ballard, Washington based company were mostly likely stunned when they heard the CEO’s words, pinching themselves to make sure they were not dreaming and checking the calendar to make sure it was not April 1st. Good for him and for a CEO to make this decision on his own with no protests of employees demanding $15 an hour. Kudos to the privately owned company and kudos to CEO Dan Price for his brilliant marketing strategy. Although costly in the short run, this will greatly pay off in the long run. The Gravity raise will be phased in over the next few years; however, they will be getting the best and brightest future employees.
Obviously not every boss can do what CEO Dan Price announced and it better works for smaller companies with less employees. Dan Price made $1 M a year and took a pay cut to make it possible that his employees make $70K a year. WOW!!! I do not agree at all that the government should dictate to a business what the minimum wage should be. Those that you hear about in fast food restaurants protesting for $15/hr minimum wage can take a hike. Trying getting more order correct first or being able to make proper change from $15 before you think you deserve it. However, if a private business does it on their own because they think their employees are worth it … more power to them.
Employees at a Seattle company are still trying to wrap their minds around the news their boss just delivered. Some of them are getting a raise.
A huge one.
“You might be making $35,000 a year right now but everyone in here will definitely be making $70,000 a year and I’m super excited about that,” Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments in Ballard, told his employees during a recent gathering.
The announcement caught everyone off-guard. Could it be true? $70,000 is the new minimum wage in this office?
Watch the VIDEO below of CEO of Gravity Payments Dan Price explain his reasoning for this move. He is not a socialist and he tells Stuart Varney on Fox Business News that he thinks that he will get a great ROI in the long run. With the fact that this is a small business, I would tend to agree 100%. This is how small business takes on the giants, you pay for talent, hard work and initiative.
CEO cuts $1M salary to pay employees at least $70K
Owners of Memories Pizza Express Their Freedom of Religion and the LGBT Activists & Cronies Have Become the Bullies that they Have Complained About for Years
THE HATEFUL GAY MOB: WHEN YOU BECOME THEY VERY EVIL THAT YOU HAVE PROTESTED AGAINST, YOU HAVE LOST YOUR WAY AND DON’T DESERVE ANYONE SUPPORT.
The story of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana is just the most recent example of just how intolerant, vicious and hateful the LGBT community has become lately. The state of Indiana passed a law protection religious rights with the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a law that was very similar to the federal one and the law passed by 19 other states. However, the LGBT activists, their cronies and and all-too willing leftist MSM attacked and misrepresented the law as being anti-Gay. Caught in the middle of the controversy and in the eye of the storm was little known and unheard of Memories Pizza located in Walkerton, IN.
Crystal O’Conner was asked a so-called hypothetical question by a news reporter, which was probably more of a set up hit piece than a question, if they would not cater a gay wedding? Her answer was, if they came into their restaurant they would most certainly serve them food; however, because of their religious beliefs, they would not cater a gay wedding. The LGBT brown shirts and liberal MSM lost their collective minds.
A small town, family-owned pizzeria has become the latest target of an angry mob of modern-day fascists — hell-bent on silencing anyone who opposes gay marriage.
Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal own Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Ind. — just a hop, skip and a jump southwest of South Bend.
Mr. O’Connor and his family have been forced into hiding and had to temporarily shut down their store after they told a local television reporter that they would not cater a gay wedding.
“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” Crystal told ABC 57 on Tuesday.
The backlash against Memories Pizza and its owners, Kevin O’Connor and his daughter Crystal, was immediate, swift and as vile as it gets. The anonymous cowards on social media made death threats and called Kevin and Crystal every name in the book. One not-so swift nut job actually threatened to burn their business down. Did we mention the individual who made this hateful comment, Jessica Dooley, is the softball and girls’ golf coach at Concord High School in Elkhart, Indiana. We should say was the coach was she has since been suspended. Personally, anyone who is this ignorant to have a criminal threat like this belongs no where around students. The police department conducted an investigation and forwarded the case to the St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges.
“Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza with me?” Jessica Dooley asked in the tweet, which has since been deleted. “Agree with #FreedomOfReligionBill? ‘That’s a lifestyle they CHOOSE’ Ignorant.”
But the fix was in and the vile attacks against Memories Pizza was in. They became Public Enemy #1 of the LGBT Hit squad. Not ISIS or countries like Saudi Arabia who kill gays just for being gay, but Memories Pizza. Why, because a bully always picks on the little guy. The O’Conner’s were forced to close down their business because of the mob. Really, the owners of a business were forced to close their business for fear of their own safety. NICE JOB LGBT. Is this what is has come to? Where is the tolerance from the gay community? You mean everyone is supposed to not only tolerate but accept the LGBT? Maybe the LGBT might want to take some tolerances classes of their own.
The family business came under fierce assault by LGBT activists and their cronies — accusing them of being anti-gay bigots. Their Facebook pages were smeared with gay pornography. Their phones were overwhelmed by vulgar and profane threats.
What is sad is that the MOB mentality was allowed to act in this manner and the media fanned the flames. It was not too long ago when the gay community cried foul when the heterosexual mobs used to do the same to them. But of course its different now because the LGBT community is doing it. Sorry, there is a way to do something and a way not to. The idea that people are forced to accept what they do not believe is insane. Most people have a if that’s what you want to do and that’s your right, than so be it … but do not think that you get to infringe on my right with yours.
Comcast Changed Customer’s Name to “Asshole Brown” … Listening to How One Gets Treated in Canceling Their Account Makes It Obvious Who the Real A$$holes Are
With Comcast it appears the customer is not always right …
After a customer tried to reduce their charges on their Comcast account, they were sent an invoice addressed to “Asshole” Brown. No, their name is not “Asshole,” it was Ricardo but that is what one of the mean-spirited employees of Comcast changed the name to. WOW, can you say customer service! Or the lack thereof. Instead of being transferred to a cancellation department, it appears Comcast sends you to a “customer retention” specialist whose job it is to drive you mad and break your will to just say yes, you will stay with them, but just stop the madness. Most likely, if the Brown’s spoke to a customer retention Nazi like the one below, or worse, you can now understand how it was possible for someone’s name was changed.
Finally, Comcast admitted their mistake, apologized for the actions of their representative and offered a full refund for the past two years of service as well as two additional years at no extra charge. Also, her husband’s name was corrected in the system. In the end they will receive a check for $3900. Hmm, imagine how much they would have received if their name was changed to “F*CKHEAD” Brown or “SH*T FOR BRAINS” Brown, I am thinking double or triple the amount.
When Ricardo Brown from Spokane, Washington got his most recent bill from Comcast, he had an extra special reason to be dismayed. It wasn’t the pricey charges—we’re all used to that by now. No, it was that on this particular bill, Comcast appears to have misspelled his name. By replacing it entirely with the word “Asshole.”
Ricardo’s wife, Lisa, shared the unfortunate switcheroo with consumer advocate Chris Elliot. According to her, the whole problem may very well have stemmed from her attempts to reduce her cable bill over the phone—a delicate little dance otherwise known as the Ninth Circle of Hell.
[Lisa] explained that her family was having financial difficulties and needed to reduce their cable bill. She’d called Comcast to cancel the cable portion of her account, for which she had to pay a $60 fee. Instead of complying immediately, a representative escalated her call to a retention specialist, who tried to persuade her to keep the cable service and sign a new two-year contract.
“I was never rude,” she says. “It could have been that person was upset because I didn’t take the offer.”
WOW, check this out. I am not, not have I ever been a Comcast customer and after listening to the crap and endless nonsense they put you thru in order to disconnect your service, I can say that I will never be a Comcast customer. The telephone exchange between the customer and Comcast retention is unbelievable. I can honesty say I would not have been able to remain that calm or polite. What might be the highlight of this conversation is when the customer asks the Comcast rep whether he is being punked.

F&R Auto Sales of Westport, MA Belittles, Humiliates and Attempt to Get Pizza Delivery Driver Fired over Presumed $7 Tip … Major Internet Backlash Against F&R Auto Sales Over Posting Video
AND YOU WONDER WHY USED CAR SALES MEN ARE CONSIDERED POND SCUM … ADD IN USED CARE SALES WOMEN AS WELL.
The following sorry might just be a public service announcement to never do business with F&R Auto Sales in Westport, Massachusetts. As the story goes according to the Boston Globe, that has now went viral thanks to the idiots at F&R Auto Sales posting the video on-line, a pizza delivery man dropped off the order from Palace Pizza totaling $42 and change. They gave Jarrid Tansey, the delivery man, $50, that included two $20′s and two $5 bills. Any normal thinking person would think that if you are giving more than the cost of the order, especially with a delivery order, the overage amount would be a tip. So thought Jarrid Tansey as he left the used car lot. Oh but no, not for the jerks at F&R Auto, the dealership called the pizza place back and forced him to return the $7 and change,leaving the man without any tip. The confrontation was captured on video.
The owner of the delaership supposed apologized to the pizza restaurant. Sorry dude, you are probably going to have to go further than that.
After a back and forth conversation whether the pizza delivery man was respectful and the folks at the used car dealership far from it, Tansey left. As he walked out the door, one brave female employee said, “Out the door before I put my foot in your ass.” Really? One can only imagine what they say about their customers when you walk out the door. Not to be outdone, at the end of the video, some self-important dude wants to cause further trouble and threatens to get the person fired saying, “Get the f*cking owner and the manager on the phone, I want that mother-f*cker done. I want him fired.” Hmm, Really? Maybe it is you that should be fired?
A note to F&R Auto Sales, you mess with the bull, you get the horns. To the jerks at F&R Auto Sales who asked like such idiots and maliciously wanted to get this pizza delivery man fired who was just trying to do his job in s respectful manner, maybe it might just be you who should be fired. Who the hell do you self-important, self-righteous asses think you are? You are used car sales people. Also, it is exactly this type of behavior that causes retaliations that may escalate far worse than tough talk in an office and acting all big and bad. You may not want to try and screw with someones job in this day and age, you might just get blow-back that you never wanted.
Needless to say the reviews on YELP and Google for F&R Auto Sales have much to be desired. The Raw Story points out that there are even complaints against this business even before the pizza backlash, areview from October of this year said, “I do not know how this place is still in business with all the people they scammed.” Maybe the owner of F&R Auto Sales would have his employees read, “Used Car Sales for Dummies” because belittling, harassing and hassling a minimum wage worker who is in the same sales industry as you over $7.00 and in doing so decimating your used car business is brilliant. Way to go geniuses! Of course that is before you fire all of them yourself.
Warning – Adult Language
The delivery man in the video is an employee at Palace Pizza named Jarrid Tansey, according to two employees there. Lianette Hernandez, a cook and cashier, and Adam Willoughby, a manager, confirmed the video came from an interaction at the nearby dealership F&R Auto Sales on Saturday.
The total bill for the pizza and drinks was just over $42, Hernandez said, and dealership workers gave Tansey $50 in two twenties and two fives. In the video, Tansey says he confirmed that they wanted to give the whole $50, and then left with what he assumed was a $7-and-change tip.
However, the dealership then called the pizza place back and forced him to return the $7-and-change, and he was left without a tip, leading to the heated conversation on video.
“It just doesn’t make sense why you’d hand me a bill that you were just gonna have me drive back here to give you back anyway,” Tansey says in the video. “I’m not mad, I just had to waste my resources coming back here.”
But the office-workers are adamant about their position in the video.
“So listen: The manager apologized once for you. Do you want him to apologize again for you?” [editors note: Actually, yes I do because you seem to have not got the message. As a matter of fact, the pizza delivery man should have said he wanted an apology from him]. the worker in blue says.
“Out the door before I put my foot in your ass,” a female office-worker in green says. [Editors note: wow, what a brave soul, you make your tough comment as the individual is leaving. Brave act used car sales bimbo].
“Get the f—ing owner and the manager on the phone, I want that mother-f—er done,” another man in the office says after Tansey leaves. “I want him fired.”
The video was originally posted on YouTube, but it has since been made private. [editors note: Nice try, this is the world-wide-web dudes, you are not the only individuals who have downloaded the video. Your rotton behavior does not go away that quickly.] However, a Google index of the video shows the title as originally being “irate pizza driver.” The angle of the video suggests it comes from a stationary security camera inside the dealership’s office.
Willoughby, who was working that night, said he got a call from F&R Auto Sales saying that Tansey had “verbally berated” them. He said they took the call seriously at first and asked Tansey about the interaction. After Tansey explained what had happened, managers decided not to discipline the driver.
“This isn’t the first time we have had problems with F&R Auto,” Willoughby said.
“All the time, there’s always a problem, always an issue,” Hernandez said. “We’ve been going back and forth with them for a long time.”
