    Some restaurant owners say a new form of dine and dash is taking hold amid the pandemic. Instead of a customers ditching the check at the end of a meal, this new form of dine and dash is being carried out via food delivery apps. Eric Lipsky, owner of Bell’s BBQ in Henderson, said lately he has seen an increase in mistakes and issues reported through his third party delivery services. Customers get their order, then dispute the charges. “I can’t tell whether it is a legitimate issue where we made a mistake or if someone is just trying to...

    For Christmas and her January birthday we usually give my near 30 yr old niece cash & a small gift. But, in past years she has shown her absolute ignorance by supporting Antifa, BLM, and Biden. Her most recent response to a video I sent her of Diamond & Silk was "the election is not being stolen." Well, instead of actually disowning her, I've decided I'd like to just send her fraudulent gifts (sending something stolen just wouldn't work )... I have some monopoly money but need something more real, that will maybe get her attention....since Freepers are smart and...

    Eatery San Francisco ^ | Nov 30, 2020 | Eve Batey
    Willie Lewis Brown Jr., San Francisco’s mayor from 1996 to 2004, says that he has a solution for San Francisco’s struggling restaurants: Require diners to take a COVID-19 test within 72 hours before they sit down to eat. Implementing a rule like this “would do a lot to bring people back,” Brown says, adding that the program would make dining out “risk-free.” Brown argues that restaurants across the city could bring in more diners if they would “advertise that your store, your restaurant or your public space is available only to people who had a negative test in the past...

Rally organizers blame liberals for violence and vandalism at recent protests. "We're here to say we do not give you permission to cause damage and destruction. We're taking our country back from the radical left," says Walk Away founder Brandon Straka.

    Three Short Pieces of Advice for President Trump on the Virus 1. Offer more realistic hope. President Trump could say something like this: “We are going to have a huge party when this thing subsides. We’re going to dine out, travel, and enjoy life more than ever before. Believe it!” 2. Be encouraging. He could also say, “Keep building and growing, America. Keep hiring good people. Keep making great products. Show our leadership. Have faith that moves mountains.” 3. Report new cases (and deaths) of the flu alongside new cases (and deaths) of the coronavirus. This will help put coronavirus...

    Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has agreed to testify before the Senate next week, her lawyer said Saturday. The exact terms and timing of her testimony remain unclear, as negotiations between Ford's lawyers and staff for the Senate Judiciary Committee remain ongoing. Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) had given Ford's lawyers until Saturday afternoon to decide on whether she would proceed with testifying. An email from Ford's lawyers sent to the Judiciary Committee shortly before a 2:30 p.m. deadline said Ford had accepted the panel's "request to provide...

    At least 17 people have been killed in Mozambique's capital, Maputo, after a huge mound of rubbish collapsed on their homes, officials say. Many more residents were injured when the pile of waste, some 15m (49ft) high, gave way in heavy rains at 03:00 local time (01:00 GMT) on Monday. Rescue workers are continuing to search for people still trapped. The city of Maputo has experienced heavy rainfall since Sunday, which has damaged homes and flooded roads. Several properties were crushed in the incident in the Hulene district of Maputo, one of the poorest parts of the capital, while people...

  • Medicaid for All Would 'Bankrupt the Nation,' Warns Bernie Sanders—In 1987

    Reason ^ | Sep. 14, 2017 3:00 pm | Peter Suderman
    Back in 1987, a much younger Bernie Sanders ... warned that expanding Medicaid, the jointly run federal-state health care program for the poor and disabled, to everyone in the country would "bankrupt the nation." "If we expanded Medicaid [to] everybody. Give everybody a Medicaid card—we would be spending such an astronomical sum of money that, you know, we would bankrupt the nation." Medicaid, notably, is far less generous than Medicare, the health program for seniors that Sanders wants to expand. Medicaid's provider networks are narrower, and its benefits are generally more limited. It pays doctors quite a bit less than...

    MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin — GOP presidential candidate Ohio Gov. John Kasich came out in support of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement during the fourth GOP primary debate hosted by Fox Business, saying the deal is “critical.” “The trade agreement – the TPP – it’s critical to us not only for economic reasons and for jobs because there’s so many people who are connected to getting jobs because of trade, but it allows us to create not only economic alliances, but also potentially strateigic alliances against the Chinese,” Kasich argued in support of the nearly 6,000 page agreement –...

"I think Hillary is disgusting," said Riordan, a wealthy investor who has exceeded $500,000 in political donations throughout his career. "And I think Trump is crazy," Riordan added in a telephone interview Monday. Riordan is not alone. In conversations over the past month, GOP establishment donors have confided to The Hill that for the first time in recent...

    Bringing government spending under control. At the last Republican presidential debate, I presented the Simple Flat Tax - which, for a family of four, exempts the first $36,000 from all income tax, and above that amount collects one low rate of 10 percent for all Americans. It eliminates the death tax, the payroll tax, the corporate income tax, and the Obamacare taxes; ends the corporate carve-outs and loopholes; and requires every business to pay the same simple business flat tax of 16 percent. That plan will unleash unprecedented growth, create millions of new jobs, raise after-tax incomes for all income...

    U. S. Rep. Trent Franks has taped this 30-second spot supporting AZ Senate candidate Wil Cardon, in which he unequivocally endorses Cardon as a “job creator,” “conservative Reagan Republican” and someone with the “business skills we need in the Senate to fix this economy.” Cardon began his campaign for the AZ U.S. Senate seat after Jon Kyl announced his retirement. Seeing Red AZ applauds Congressman Trent Franks for his enthusiastic support of businessman Wil Cardon. Franks’ message that “Wil Cardon will be a true conservative Republican senator we can trust” speaks between-the-lines volumes since he has served with Flake for...
