An Oregon middle school football coach is in some hot water (or should we say hot sauce) for his insatiable desire to host his team’s end-of-season party at Hooters.
When parents of the children protested, do you think the coach relented? No. He issued this gem to Oregon Live.
“I believe this is a fine venue,” said Randall Burbach. “It’s not a strip club.”
Damn right. I’m tired of people calling Hooters a strip club. It’s a delicious wing joint. When I go, I don’t even notice if they have waiters or waitresses. Probably both, I assume.
This all began when Burbach decided to throw a party for his team. I guess he felt it was his right to have it where he wanted, a place where he could drink a cold one, the kids could eat some french fries and moms and dads could stare at some tits. But when parents got wind of it, they went above Burbach’s head to the school’s athletic director, who while he agreed with the coach in an email that the “food is good!” he was not okay with the atmosphere.
In a letter written to “Families and Friends of Corbett 7th/8th Grade Football,” Athletic Director J.P. Soulagnet said he tried to persuade coach Randy Burbach to move the event to another location, so that “families could attend and feel comfortable.” But Burbach was “unyielding and emphatically said no.”
There is nothing wrong with Hooters people COME ON!
It seems that despite their cloaking themselves in choice, they wish to deny us most choices in life. Like who we do business with
Thought crimes vs. the First Amendment in Oregon (via The Blaze)
(KGW) The Oregon Department of Justice is looking into a complaint that a Gresham bakery refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex marriage.
It started on Jan. 17 when a mother and daughter showed up at Sweet Cakes by Melissa looking for the perfect wedding cake.
“My first question is what’s the wedding date,” said owner Aaron Klein. “My next question is bride and groom’s name … the girl giggled a little bit and said it’s two brides.”
Klein apologized to the women and told them he and his wife do not make cakes for same-sex marriages. Klein said the women were disgusted and walked out.
“I believe that marriage is a religious institution ordained by God,” said Klein. “A man should leave his mother and father and cling to his wife … that to me is the beginning of marriage.”
The charge would be for discrimination in a public place under ORS 659a.403. Looking at the entire portion of ORS 659a, civil penalites can be assessed at up to $1,000 (659a.855). The Commissioner of the Bureau of Labor and Industries can also forced the defendant to cease and desist. Furthermore, the defendant isn’t entitled to a trial by jury in front of his/her peers, but instead must face a tribunal of Bureau of Labor employees.
My first thought is this. If a business snubs you, leave and do not go back. You have every right to not shop anywhere you choose. But, businesses also should possess the right to REFUSE to do business with you.
My second thought is that this is a trend we will see increased. The goal here is not acceptance or tolerance. It is Statism and control of thought and speech.
My third thought is that if this were my bakery, I would have taken the business and baked them whatever cake they wanted, but that is me. In a free country we should all be able to make the choice for ourselves. But, of course, to the Left, freedom is a bad thing because some people use their freedom to do or say things the Left disagrees with. And that is something the tolerant Left simply cannot tolerate.
