12 workers fired for not showing up for work, taking part in stupid protest

No call + No show = No job!

Via KTUL:

A dozen workers at a Catoosa restaurant are without a job today after getting fired for skipping work as a show of support for “A Day Without Immigrants.”

The restaurant workers are all Hispanic and they say it was important to them to participate in the national protest.

But they didn’t think it would cost them their jobs.

“They feel like they’ve been unfairly terminated,” said a friend, translating for the employees.

The group worked at “I Don’t Care” Bar and Grill in Catoosa. They talked to us after they were fired for not showing up to work. They asked us to not show their faces or give their names.

“(They’ve) been working there for almost two years since the restaurant opened,” said the friend.

The group willingly chose to stay home with others across the country supporting “A Day Without Immigrants.”

“(They’re) upset they stood for something they felt was necessary so the community would stand together, and they got terminated for that,” said the friend,

The six are a part of a group of 12 kitchen staff let go.[…]

Restaurant owner Bill McNally gave us a written statement, saying he has a “zero tolerance policy for no show/no call incidents and the 12 employees violated that policy.”

Actions have consequences

Another singer comes out of the Trump Closet

This time it is Kaya Jones, formerly of the Pussycat Dolls

Singer and DJ Kaya Jones took to social media this week to show off a Donald Trump t-shirt she was “never able to wear” before for fear of being attacked, and thanked fellow singer Joy Villa for giving her the strength to openly share her support for the president.

In an Instagram post, the 32-year-old singer expressed her gratitude to Villa, who made headlines this week when she wore a dress emblazoned with Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan to the Grammys.

When the Mask of Tolerance slips………

The Left is a very dangerous thing

The media has told us repeatedly that ever since the election, there has been an epidemic of violence by Trump supporters against groups favored by liberals, particularly Muslims, blacks, and homosexuals. This narrative has relied heavily on hoaxes. In reality, it is the Trump supporters who have been targeted for violence. This flier was found on a distribution box for The Daily Tar Heel at University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill:

bash-the-fash-unc

The violence isn’t just a proposal. At Berkeley, a suspected Trump supporter had his head bashed with a shovel and another had her face pepper-sprayed.

Be careful out there folks. Understand how far some will carry political hatred

Not Breaking News: Gateway Pundit Jim Hoft is still a lying bottom feeder.

Oh that Jim Hoft, he is quite the basket case. He supported Trump during the campaign, which is fine. I was not a Trump fan, which is fine. What was not fine with me was Hofts lies about Ted Cruz, and others and how he posted bogus stories. In short, I was struck and sickened frankly, by Hoft’s departure from credibility and reality. Sadly, Hoft has not moved on since Trump won the nomination and presidency. His guy won, a fact of which I am glad, and, I will say I am pleased with much of what our president has done. And I am hopeful that he will continue standing up to the Left. Further, I will continue to do whatever I can to defend the president from the fake news stories, a biased media, and the Left, which is intent on delegitimizing Trump. Hoft, however, is still in attack mode against “Never Trumpers”! I think Hoft sees them around every corner, and maybe even under his bed. Perhaps he has to sleep with an Info Wars night light on. And if he has to lie to smear anyone who does not dance to his tune, well, what are principles like truthfulness right Jim Hoft?

Take this post Hoft has put up

And just as we assumed — CPAC loaded the roster with committed #NeverTrumpers and ignored the grassroots supporters and websites that got Republican President Donald Trump Elected.

This year CPAC ignored many of the top Trump supporters who helped get him elected.
These top election influencers will not be speaking at CPAC despite their work to get Trump elected.

–Gavin McInnes
–Mike Cernovich
–Milo Yiannopoulos
–Stefan Molyneux
–Bill Mitchell
–Paul Joseph Watson
–Jack Posobiec
–Matt Drudge
–Infowars
–Gateway Pundit
–Ann Coulter? (if she is speaking she is not listed)
–Wikileaks…

Oh no, someone has the sads. Some wanted to be invited to speak I mean look at who CPAC left out. Look, some of those I would have invited, and NO, Infowars would NOT have been on that list. Good Freaking grief!

Hoft has a point. Soe folks who are not so famous, or well know  ought to be invited to speak. But the truth is, Hoft gives the impression that CPAC only invited those who opposed Trump, which is not true. Here is the list Hoft provides of “Never Trumpers” that are going to speak

Katie Pavlich
Dana Loesch
Ted Cruz
Carly Fiorina
Michael Reagan
Mark Levin

Pavlich is a great Conservative, as is Dana Loesch, who also said Republicans should vote for the eventual nominee no matter who it was. Why would CPAC not invite them? Oh wait, because they supported people other than Trump! And Hoft, the little Totalitarian would ex-communicate them!

By the way, Cruz endorsed Trump, as did Fiorina and Levin before the election. Why does Hoft insist on misleading people and smearing the “Never Trumpers”? The election is over, you can stop the character assassinations now Jimmy. Many of the “Never Trumpers” you bash are now defending Trump against the media and the political left

And, if Hoft bothered to be truthful, yeah, like that matters to him, he would note how many pro-Trump people ARE speaking at CPAC

Dr. Gina Loudon

Sheriff David Clarke

Vice-President Mike Pence

John Bolton, who may be the new National Security Advisor (I hope he will frankly)

Lou Dobbs

You can peruse the entire list for yourself. Certainly, the time for the rhetoric Hoft is spewing is over. There is a place for bitter, angry, petulant people. It is the Democratic Party. Trump himself has shown a spirit of unity, and leadership. I would say he is winning over many Conservatives. And, yes, that includes myself. Perhaps Hoft should learn from President Trump?

An end to “gun free zones” in Florida?

The concept of gun-free zones has been, as a crime fighting tool, an utter failure. As with every new strategy the Cult of Gun Control comes up with, gun free zones disarmed only those who obey laws. Those wishing to commit acts of evil simply saw these zones as easy targets. Not surprisingly, the vast majority of mass shootings have occurred in these gun free zones. Florida, it seems, may be ready to end this failed policy

Florida has been the target of two mass shootings in the past nine months; the Orlando Nightclub shooting which left 49 dead and the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting which left 5 dead.

In hopes of preventing yet another tragedy, two Republican state lawmakers introduced legislation this week that would eliminate gun free zones in the state.

If House Bill 803 or Senate Bill 908 is approved, Florida residents with a concealed carry permit – of which there are over 1.7 million – will be allowed to carry wherever they please…almost.

Federally imposed restrictions will still apply, and private property owners will still have the power to dictate whether guns are allowed on their premises.

Rep. Don Hahnfeldt, sponsor of HB 803, told the Miami Herald that “gun-free zones have been a failure” in the state and across the country.

Of course, the Cult of Gun Control resoonded with their usual fare. Easily refutable rhetoric. Scare mongering, and babbling about “making Florida more dangerous”

“These gun-happy legislators have gone too far. They are endangering the public, not protecting it,” Patti Brigham, coalition co-chair and vice president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, said in a statement. “The idea of allowing permit-holders to take their guns into bars is absurd and incredibly dangerous. And just why would we want permit-holders to take guns into polling places?”

Hmmm, I was still living in Florida when that state passed concealed carry. The dire predictions of “blood in the streets”, and “Wild West shootouts” never materialized after that law passed. It has been 30 years since concealed carry became law in Florida, 1.7 million Floridians carry firearms legally, and those predictions of doom still have not come true. Likewise, Stand Your Ground has not created havoc and mayhem in Florida. Of course, the Cult of Gun Control tried the lie that since stand your ground had become law, homicides in Florida had risen. I checked the numbers, and indeed, in Florida, and some other states with stand your ground laws, a specific category of homicide had indeed risen. That category? Justifiable homicide, AKA self-defense.

So, again, the Cult was lying, deliberately. And, please understand this. They lie knowing that laws allowing legal carry, and allowing Americans to defend themselves do not increase crime, in fact, the usual result is a decrease in violent crime. So, what is their agenda? Think about that question the next time some gun control carnival barker begins their rhetoric. Ask this question. If they have to lie to “prove” their point………?
