Gay Pride Whopper in SF?
Really, BK? You're my favorite burger joint, and I have been eating those new BBQ burgers almost on a daily basis. But i'm done with BK now, unless they balance this shit out and release some sort of conservative-leaning food item  icon_confused

Immigrant children from south of the border?
Fine, but do it legally. And make voter ID a federal mandate. Or, if my tax dollars are being used, then i'd be all for just taking some of these countries over and making them better places to live so the people dont want to leave. Plus, there would be some return on the investment from any of the country's resources.

IRS needs slapped down bad. You all wouldn't like it if/when it's the other way around.

Israel.
You're handling it the right way, as usual  thumbsup

And on a side-note, Moo-chele Nobama, you're all for getting us to eat better? First, mind your own freaking business, and second, how about starting with welfare recipients being the first ones forced to eat only what you feel is "good"

I'm sorry that there's no straight guy burger for you to purchase.  I know how hard your struggles have been with your 'chosen' orientation, what with you being targeted by law enforcement for persecution, being denied equal protection under the law, and having your orientation designated as a mental disorder.

The president is currently seeking to expedite the return of illegal immigrant children.  But that doesn't fit the outrage narrative.

Voter ID a federal mandate? I thought conservatives were all about state's rights and the sanctity of the 10th Amendment.  And where is the landslide of voter fraud cases that we're supposed to be seeing?  If Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott can't find more than 26 cases in a state of 26 million, it must be a huge problem.  

Get the fuck over yourself.

Topics from past WAZ posts:

Why do we allow the choice of "white meat" when talking about chicken in restaurants or grocery stores?  White people are NOT chicken!  We're a brave lot!

What's with all this talk of a "Castle Doctrine"?  What kind of liberal plot is this?  Only castles can have doctors now?!?!

Who invented IQ tests and why don't they include a section on NASCAR?!?!

I predict this thread goes from amusing to awesome once Fireball jumps in.

I also wonder how much bacon a super straight conservative burger would have on it. One thing's for sure it wouldn't have any secret sauce. The whole thing reminds me of this scene from Bruno:

Yep, no problems at all.  (Fireball had an excellent breakdown of this a while back as well, but my search skills are failing me.  Maybe it was over at OO.)

Quote
Ten states now have unprecedented restrictive voter ID laws. Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin all require citizens to produce specific types of government-issued photo identification before they can cast a vote that will count. Legal precedent requires these states to provide free photo ID to eligible voters who do not have one.

Unfortunately, these free IDs are not equally accessible to all voters. This report is the first comprehensive assessment of the difficulties that eligible voters face in obtaining free photo ID.

The 11 percent of eligible voters who lack the required photo ID must travel to a designated government office to obtain one. Yet many citizens will have trouble making this trip. In the 10 states with restrictive voter ID laws:

    Nearly 500,000 eligible voters do not have access to a vehicle and live more than 10 miles from the nearest state ID-issuing office open more than two days a week. Many of them live in rural areas with dwindling public transportation options.
    More than 10 million eligible voters live more than 10 miles from their nearest state ID-issuing office open more than two days a week.
    1.2 million eligible black voters and 500,000 eligible Hispanic voters live more than 10 miles from their nearest ID-issuing office open more than two days a week. People of color are more likely to be disenfranchised by these laws since they are less likely to have photo ID than the general population.
    Many ID-issuing offices maintain limited business hours. For example, the office in Sauk City, Wisconsin is open only on the fifth Wednesday of any month. But only four months in 2012 — February, May, August, and October — have five Wednesdays. In other states — Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Texas — many part-time ID-issuing offices are in the rural regions with the highest concentrations of people of color and people in poverty.

More than 1 million eligible voters in these states fall below the federal poverty line and live more than 10 miles from their nearest ID-issuing office open more than two days a week. These voters may be particularly affected by the significant costs of the documentation required to obtain a photo ID. Birth certificates can cost between $8 and $25. Marriage licenses, required for married women whose birth certificates include a maiden name, can cost between $8 and $20. By comparison, the notorious poll tax — outlawed during the civil rights era — cost $10.64 in current dollars.

The result is plain: Voter ID laws will make it harder for hundreds of thousands of poor Americans to vote. They place a serious burden on a core constitutional right that should be universally available to every American citizen.

This November, restrictive voter ID states will provide 127 electoral votes — nearly half of the 270 needed to win the presidency. Therefore, the ability of eligible citizens without photo ID to obtain one could have a major influence on the outcome of the 2012 election.

And this one,

Zekester is outraged that government-funded school lunch programs are being required to offer healthier food, one meal a day, during the school year.  He wants the government to mind its own business.

Instead, he wants the government to establish an entirely new program to monitor the eating habits of welfare recipients, 24-hours a day, all year round.  

If anyone asks why hepcat looks forward to Zekester's posts so much, I'll know where to send them.

I'd also like to point out that every attempt Republicans have made to demonstrate the existence of voter fraud has instead proven the exact opposite.  South Carolina spent eighteen months investigating allegations of 900 "zombie voters" casting ballots from beyond the grave, and found nothing suspicious in all but five cases.

In another instance, Republicans once claimed there were upwards of 180,000 illegal voters just in the state of Florida.  The results of the state's 9-month long investigation?  Two suspicious cases, only one of which was actionable.

Even if every person in the country had the time, money, and personal documentation to acquire a voter ID card, there would still be no reason to force the issue because voter fraud is statistically non-existent.  If anyone has a commendable reason why Republicans continue to press for draconian new laws anyway, I would still like to hear it.

It's called Shooters Grill and it is located in Rifle, Colo., so naturally, the waitresses pack heat.

The burger joint, about 180 miles west of Denver, embraces the firearms theme with menu items like the "M16 burrito," "Smith & Wesson Grilled Cheese" and "Locked and Loaded Nachos." The salt and pepper shakers are made from shotgun shells. But the biggest Second Amendment statement is in the guns waitresses carry, including the Rueger Blackhawk .357 Ashlee Saenz sports.

Quote
Owner Lauren Boebert, 27, started the trend when she began carrying a pistol shortly after opening the restaurant a year ago.

"I started open-carrying maybe a month after we opened just because I am a woman in business and I was there early hours and late nights," Boebert said. "There was a man beaten to death in the alley behind my restaurant last year. It was very unfortunate."

Big difference when it's the establishment doing it rather than the patrons doing it in a place where the establishment has requested people not to.

Either way, walking around a target, wendy's, gas station, whatever visibly armed just to do it has nothing to do with the right to bear arms.  It's just morons trying to show how 'counter culture' they are. That's right. They're the nouveau hipster.

The salt and pepper shakers are made from shotgun shells. But the biggest Second Amendment statement is in the guns waitresses carry, including the Rueger Blackhawk .357 Ashlee Saenz sports.

Quote
Owner Lauren Boebert, 27, started the trend when she began carrying a pistol shortly after opening the restaurant a year ago.

"I started open-carrying maybe a month after we opened just because I am a woman in business and I was there early hours and late nights," Boebert said. "There was a man beaten to death in the alley behind my restaurant last year. It was very unfortunate."

 High five!


Big difference when it's the establishment doing it rather than the patrons doing it in a place where the establishment has requested people not to.

Either way, walking around a target, wendy's, gas station, whatever visibly armed just to do it has nothing to do with the right to bear arms.  It's just morons trying to show how 'counter culture' they are. That's right. They're the nouveau hipster.

I wasn't talking about the guns. I was talking about the menu items with gun themed names. That is the conservative leaning food items that Zeke was looking for.

Even during a time of such divisive politics, getting upset with the First Lady for trying to introduce healthier meals into our school system just baffles me with its idiocy.  People are really angry that she wants kids to eat better when child obesity has become an epidemic in this country?  Amazing.  You have to be a special kind of nut job to find that upsetting.

I predict this thread goes from amusing to awesome once Fireball jumps in.

Meh. Low-class, gay-hating troll posts a low-class trolling tirade that includes anti-gay nonsense. Boring.

I would agree were it not for that it seems many of the kids would rather not eat than to eat the crap they are trying to feed them. Better they eat less healthy food than to elect to not eat at all.

Even groups originally in favor of these standards have now turned against them. One of these groups is the School Nutrition Association, which represents school cafeteria workers. Of course, they are in favor of getting kids to eat healthier, but the real problem here is that they have seen many districts losing money as a direct result of these new Michelle Obama initiated standards. The basic fact is that students simply aren’t buying these lunches. I suppose that is a side effect when you make their lunches, “taste like vomit,” according to some actual students.

Since the first round of these new standards first went into effect in 2012, more than 1 million fewer students are eating lunch at school each day. This is stark contrast to decades of steadily increasing participation among students, according to an association spokeswoman. A second round of new rules has just taken effect as of July 1, which even includes new standards for breakfast in schools.

You gotta be kidding me.  I thought you were a parent?  Do you routinely tell your children to eat their veggies...but only if they want to!

Of course kids don't want to eat healthy.  That's been true for...well...ever.   Name me one kid that doesn't want to go straight to desert at dinner and skip the broccoli? 

The answer isn't to say "Oh well, better you eat huge chunks of lard than nothing at all!".  It's to say "This is what you're getting.  Eat it or go hungry until you get home."

Then you solve nothing. Not eating isn't any healthier.

Kids that don't eat also don't learn very well. I am far more concerned with the education my kids get in school than what they eat while they are there.
