The ones who trust most people to legally own and use guns responsibly? Private businesses have the right to deny service to anyone and do whatever they want, except when it direcrly affects me. OP didn’t say businesses shouldn’t have the right, they just said they wouldn’t patronize any business that did. If I walk into a joint and they start randomly insulting my parentage, genitalia, and genetic viability, I’m not going back there again, even though they’re just exercising their free speech rights. This may be hard for you to grasp, but many people think people should have the right to do things the first group considers wrong. Was at a festival this past spring and saw a group of people open carry and they all had shirts on with “you’re welcome for the protection.” There were cops at the event and I really wouldn’t want grandma who couldn’t come close to the corn hole boards taking any life or death shots. Okay. Were any of the people in question grandmas, or are you just making that up? People who want you disarmed don’t want you to be safe. They want you to be defenseless.   “oh you silly geese, there aren’t going to be any mass shootings in that restaurant.” You know who else thought that? The people who went to Luby’s in Killeen, TX on October 16, 1991. The people who went to Twin Peaks in Waco, TX on May 17, 2015. The people who went to McDonald’s in San Ysidro, CA on July 18, 1984. And the tournament gamers at Chicago Pizza in Jacksonville, FL less than 2 months ago. FOH with that bullshit. Or Waffle House, when they banned guns and explicitly stood by that policy even after incidents involving criminals and guns in their joints, even though someone armed nearby intervened on more than one of those occasions.  Getting shot at Waffle House is practically a meme now. I personally know at least one person who was involved in a shooting at one of our local Waffle Houses I’m sure there are more.: Oo00o Aug 18, 2018 "Sign on door no guns" My husband and I have conceal carry permits. We noticed the no weapons at the door. I don't do business with companies that deny me my 2nd amendment right and put me at risk of a mass shooting with no way to defend my self. So we left.

Diddy Talks New App With ‪Jay-Z‬ To Connect Consumers to Black-Owned Businesses In New GQ Interview: “It’s About Blacks Gaining Economic Power” - blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brother Love himself, or Diddy, as many still recognize his name as, was the cover story for the newest issue of GQ magazine. The interview mentioned a lot of projects we can expect to see from Diddy in the near future, including the new app that he and ‪Jay-Z‬ want to develop to connect consumers to black-owned business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He stated, "My culture… I want to be an authentic, unapologetic warrior for black culture and the culture of the street and how it moves. My thing is most importantly to change the narrative of the black race. I can't relate to anything that isn't about that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There wasn’t much mentioned about the app’s name, release date, etc. Yet, Brother Love let up lightly about the apps projected function. When you open it, you will be able to search any city for black-owned or black-friendly business for you to patronize. Like a digital directory. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He goes on to clarify, saying, "This is not about taking away from any other community… We'll still go to Chinatown. We'll still buy Gucci! But the application will make it possible for us to have an economic community. It's about blacks gaining economic power.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Looking forward to seeing how the app works and what kind of businesses you will be able to find once you explore its search engines.: Diddy Talks New App With Jay-Z To Connect Consumers to Black-Owned Businesses In New GQ Interview: "It's About Blacks Gaining Economic Power"@balleralert Diddy Talks New App With ‪Jay-Z‬ To Connect Consumers to Black-Owned Businesses In New GQ Interview: “It’s About Blacks Gaining Economic Power” - blogged by @worldwidekeege ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brother Love himself, or Diddy, as many still recognize his name as, was the cover story for the newest issue of GQ magazine.

All he cares about is that you can cook. The contestant, Christine, is blind, and he lets her know exactly what he thinks of her dish. OMG I was preparing myself to be enraged by him making some horrible comment but now I’m crying in Starbucks GOD DAMMIT Christ I am not okay with these fEELINGS IM BAWLING That’s so cute I wanna cry Is there a Gordon Ramsay fan base on this site??? And where can i join??? Spoilers, she won. Her cookbook is on sale now. Also, this is the very first apple pie she ever made. Also, can we please take notice OF HOW HE DESCRIBES IT FOR HER? Ramsay was extremely conscious during the entire season that she would require different tactics than the other contestants; this was not the only time he became her eyes, nor the only time he did things like that scrape of the knife so she could actually have a sense of her work. And if you really want to bawl like a baby? During final four or final three, I forget which, the remaining contestants got photos from home. Christine’s husband sent their wedding photo—which she had never seen. Ramsay paused before starting the challenge to describe to her not only her husband—the look of love and joy on his face—but also herself as a bride, so she could see in her mind how the two of them looked together on their wedding day. It was extremely obvious nobody had ever thought to do that before. This man should be a fucking icon not just for his cooking, but for how he treats those who are different. During the same season he asked a handsome young man, making conversation during auditions, if he had a girlfriend. The man responded that he was gay. Ramsay, without missing a beat: “I’m sorry. Have you got a boyfriend, then?” No drama, no “oh my GOSH! You’re GAY? TOKEN CHARACTER :DDDD” just a very quick, simple whoops-my-mistake and the corrected inquiry. And then he never brought it up again! It was just a thing he learned, getting to know a contestant. Yes, he can be harsh on MasterChef and downright cruel on Hell’s Kitchen (although if you were a sous chef and you served me raw pork that was not pork tartare, I’d scream too). But he’s not an ogre; he’s a polite man with a gigantic heart who simply happens to take no shit from those who should know better. I really love Gordon Ramsay and his willingness to learn from others You see how nasty he gets on Kitchen Nightmares but he goes into another chef’a kitchen and lets them treat him like shit when they’re teaching him He once tried to learn how to make hand pulled noodles from a Chinese chef and he didn’t patronize or condescend just treated him with total respect and let the man call him an idiot when he failed and took it all with a great sense of humor I follow his twitter and he’s just so funny and nice and I LOVE HIM OK What a sweet man, though. Have you seen the way he acts with kids. Just ugh.

cornsnoot: sassy-in-glasses: staff: 🚨 The internet needs you 🚨 You’re up again, Tumblr.  Back in 2015 you demanded that the FCC adopt strict net neutrality rules and establish a free and open internet. And you won.  That should’ve been the end of it. But apparently not. The new head of the FCC wants to undo the net neutrality protections you fought so hard for. His proposed changes open the door to your web traffic being slowed down, or even blocked altogether. You could be forced to pay extra to use your favorite apps. You could even be prevented from getting news from the sources you trust. Title II protects consumers and democracy by ensuring all voices can be heard. You know the drill.

Go there now 👉 dearfcc.org ✌️ You’ll just need to provide a name, an address, and then say a little bit about why rolling back Title II protections is a bad idea. If you’re not quite sure what to write, here’s something to get you started: I’m writing to urge you to keep our Open Internet rules based on Title II in place. Without them, we could lose the internet as we know it. The proposed changes to FCC rules would allow fast lanes for sites that pay, and force everyone else into slow lanes. We’ve already seen access to streaming services like Netflix, popular games like League of Legends, and communication platforms like FaceTime slowed down, or even blocked. Conditions like this hurt businesses large and small, and penalize the users who patronize them.  The changes also open the door to unfair taxes on internet users, and could also make it harder for blogs, nonprofits, artists, and others who can’t pay up to have their voices heard. Please leave the existing net neutrality rules based on Title II in place. Thank you! If you need more ammo, feel free to quote these experts from our net neutrality Issue Time.

staff: 🚨 The internet needs you 🚨 You’re up again, Tumblr. Back in 2015 you demanded that the FCC adopt strict net neutrality rules and establish a free and open internet.

Happy FathersDay Gothamites! Today it is fitting to discuss father figures within the Batman mythology, the first being Thomas Wayne (cover panel to Batman (Vol 3) 22 by Jason Fabok)! Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and first appearing in Detective Comics (Vol 1) 33 from 1939, Thomas Wayne was a successful surgeon and respected patron of Gotham City, keeping alive the Wayne family name with the ownership of Wayne Manor and head of Wayne Enterprises. Married to socialite and philanthropist Martha Wayne, they had a son, Bruce, and at his young age, he faced Thomas and Martha's untimely death at the gun of mugger Joe Chill. Although established 78 years ago that his death would spawn the shadowy vigilante of Gotham City, the character of Thomas Wayne represented more than just that sole purpose. Thomas Wayne is shown as an influence past his tragic death in Finger's Detective Comics (Vol 1) 235 from September 1956 in "The First Batman" (panel 2) when Thomas' 'Bat-Man' costume inspires Bruce to track down Lew Moxon, the man who hired Joe Chill to kill his parents. As this classic tale was retold in Len Wein and Jim Aparo's "The Untold Legend of the Batman" from 1980 (panel 3), more modern stories told of Thomas as a brilliant surgeon aiding crime master Carmine Falcon in Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's 13 arc epic "Batman: The Long Halloween" from 1997 (panel 4) and as a guide to Bruce in spirit. Thomas' most thrilling role has been as the Batman, established in Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert 2011 arc "Flashpoint" and Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso's 3 issue side storyline "Batman: Knight of Vengeance" (panel 5). In this alternate timeline, Bruce is murdered in front of Thomas and Martha Wayne, driving Thomas into the lethal and vengeful Batman and Martha going insane and taking up the persona of The Joker. As a large part of New 52's Convergence arc (panel 6 by Ethan Van Sciver, Earth 2 (Vol 1) 17) and bringing words of wisdom to his son Bruce as Batman in DC Rebirth (panel 7 variant cover by Tim Sale, panel 8 and 9 from Batman (Vol 3) 22), Thomas Wayne proves to still be an important part of Batman's amazing history. ✌🏼💙🦇: w,p Happy FathersDay Gothamites!

12 APR: The Queen fed an elephant a banana during a visit to Whipsnade Zoo. The monarch and the Duke of Edinburgh fed seven-year-old Donna while touring a new £2m home for nine Asian elephants at the Bedfordshire attraction. They also met 10-month-old Elizabeth, born the day before the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations last year and named in her honour. Both elephants live in the Centre for Elephant Care, a new custom-designed barn. The barn, which has one-metre deep soft sand flooring, is set among 20 acres of paddocks for the herd. The ZSL charity - which runs the zoo and of which the Queen is a patron - is involved in more than 50 conservation programmes to ensure elephants and humans can coexist peacefully. The centre will open to the public today.
