Some idiot Steeler's lawyer is saying his loudmouth client was attacking (really cyberbullying) a billion dollar corporation and not some kid working there. What the jerk football player doesn't realize that HE is a multimillion dollar corporation and the kid behind the counter is not. It is one thing to mouth off in a parking lot. It's another thing for a representative of the Steelers to put it on the Internet where it no longer is hearsay evidence. One career ending gang tackle and this Steeler could be looking for a job at Chick-fil-A.
A new lawsuit claims bullies 'abused' a teen Chick-fil-A employee after an NFL player allegedly mocked him on Snapchat
"The family of a teenage Chick-fil-A employee has filed a lawsuit against Pittsburgh Steelers defensive player Sean Davis which claims he mocked the boy in a Snapchat video.
"Chick-fil-A got little kids," Davis says in the video, which shows the teen working at a Chick-fil-A drive-thru in Cranberry, Pennsylvania. "This kid like eight years old. No wonder the lines be so long at Chick-fil-A."
The lawsuit, which was filed by the teenage boy's family, claims he was later bullied at school over the video, and has since suffered from headaches, depression, sleeplessness and anxiety, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
"He got abused in school for a few weeks over it," the family's attorney, Andrew Leger, told the Post-Gazette.
The lawsuit accuses Davis of libel, cyberbullying, and intentional infliction of emotional distress."

A word from Dana Mathewson
Huh! I think there ought to be a counter-campaign against this NFL "star" for his inability to write the English language. And you are very right, Jack. The player is, basically, a corporation in himself. And who is he to decide how old the kid is?
We have a Chick-fil-A right here in my neighborhood. We don't go in often, but I tell you, it's the best fast-food organization in the WORLD. This Steeler player would have to undergo a LOT of training in order to work in one.
"Women can't carry guns because. . ." This is actually funny. And CNN has a "senior law enforcement analyst?" Who knew?
A word from Jack Kemp:
This argument makes about as much sense as saying women can't be clowns in the circus because they don't know how to put on clown makeup.
Broward County Deputies Were Allegedly Told NOT To Enter School. Here's Why.
On Monday, Fox News host Laura Ingraham revealed in an exclusive that Broward County Sheriff's Deputies were supposedly told not to enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School unless they had body cameras on, which they did not have.
Ingraham also revealed that police "lost radio transmissions" during the shooting, which also happened at the mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale airport shooting last year, which is also in Broward County.

Three New York Muslim women swccessfully sued over being forced to unveil their faces for mug shots after being arrested.
According to Fox News:
"Three lawsuits were settled Monday in Brooklyn federal court stemming from the NYPD policy of photographing people wearing religious head coverings, the New York Daily News reported. The three women settled for $60,000 each.
Some cases date to 2012, when a high school girl â€“ identified as "G.E.â€ â€“ was arrested after a brawl with two other girls whom she thought spread gossip about her.
G.E. was initially brought to a local police station and was told to take off her hijab. G.E. refused and was taken to a secluded room where a female police officer took her photo outside the presence of any men, the Daily News reported.
But at Brooklyn Central Booking the police could not accommodate the girlâ€™s religious needs, telling her that there were not any female officers available and that the camera is in a fixed spot, thus the mugshot could not be taken in a private room.
The girl alleged that a male officer then took her photo without a hijab, making her feel "exposed, violated and distraughtâ€ as she was forced to be without the Islamic garb for 20 minutes while male officers and prisoners looked at her."
Well, don't get into fistfights if you want to wear a hijab, is my view. Execting privacy after being arrested is unreasonable. There are numerous instances of, say, Hasidic Jews in prison forced to shave. Asking a woman who is under arrest to remove a covering of her entire face is hardly unreasonable = and if there are no women around to take the photo she is going to have to have a man do it. Get over it or go home.

SICHEL: Dear Student Activists Of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High: Your Behavior Makes It Hard For Us To Be On Your Side
What ever happened to "If you see something, say something?" Here, a teacher who dares to suggest that his school might be vulnerable to being "shot up" is suspended for voicing his concern.
From the New York Post:
" A high school teacher in New Jersey said he was suspended last week for bringing up his concerns about his schoolâ€™s safety in light of the Florida massacre. Philly.com reported that Timothy Locke, 59, was placed on leave for talking about the Parkland shooting and then floating the possibility that a similar event could happen at Cherry Hill High School East, which is in Cherry Hill, N.J. "He said the chances of East being shot up were high,â€ one 17-year-old student told the newspaper. The student said that she noticed another student upset and the two went to the principalâ€™s office. A spokeswoman from the school board told Philly.com that she could not discuss the personal matter. Locke is reportedly well-liked by students at the school and some protested his suspension on Monday. Locke told the paper that he was called into the principalâ€™s office and his bag was searched. He told the paper that he has to undergo a psychiatric exam."

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell has promised to raise interest rates at least three times in the near future despite the potential damage this will do to economic growth.
According to the CNBC article:
"U.S. stocks traded lower Tuesday amid testimony from new Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell. The new chair signaled the central bank could hike rates more than three times this year should economic and inflation data continue to prove healthy.
From Friend Eddie. Clear thinking in a world where it seems to be in short supply.
From the post:
"Both Delta and United airlines announced Saturday that they were withdrawing from agreements to provide discounted travel to members of the National Rifle Association attending the groupâ€™s annual meeting. That followed similar action by other companies to end partnerships and discount programs with the pro-gun group, including First National Bank of Omahaâ€”which issues the NRA Visa Card; MetLife; Chubb insurance; Hertz, Avis, Budget, Alamo, Enterprise and National car rental; and a number of other firms, including Symantec, Simplisafe, TrueCar and Starkey Hearing. Also yesterday, investment giant Blackstone sent an email to about a dozen hedge funds in which Blackstone has an interest, asking for information about "any ownership or lendingâ€ of or to "gun manufacturers or gin sellers.â€
There is risk in these corporate actions. The NRA has called them "a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.â€

By now the larger public outside the great state of Missouri is aware that Eric Greitens, a Democrat turned Republican, who also happens to be the Governor of the Show-Me State was indicted and booked last week on a felony invasion of privacy charge. The grand jury indictment stems from a photo that Greitens, a married man, allegedly snapped of a partially clad lover during a sexual tryst in the basement of his home in the spring of 2015, one year before the campaign that resulted in Greitens winning the state governorship. This is obviously a big story, one that goes beyond a prominent man behaving badly, or confirming the #MeToo meme that most men are to be distrusted. This has great ramifications for state and national politics, it also offers a commentary on the crashing of a promising career, it includes the grim reality of a family torn apart, and serves as a warning that pride turned to recklessness usually equals fatality. more...

Anti-Gun Sheriff Has Long History of Public Corruption
Mo from Conservative Treehouse:
America has had its share of oil-centered energy problems and disruptions. Now it faces potential renewable energy and high technology crises, because of its heavy reliance on imports of the rare earth and other strategic minerals that are the essential building blocks for wind turbines, solar panels, computers, smart phones, medical diagnostic devices, night vision goggles, GPS and communication systems, long-life batteries and countless other applications.
The White House and Trump Administration recently launched initiatives designed to ensure access to up-to-date information on potential US and other alternative sources â€“ and to finding safe and environmentally sound ways to find, mine, reprocess and recycle critical minerals. The goal is to emphasize sources that are less likely to come from unfriendly nations, less likely to face disruption â€¦ especially from domestic mining.
It will be interesting to see which legislators, regulators and activist groups support these important programs â€“ and which ones oppose them and other efforts to safeguard our current and future defense, security, economic, living standards and sustainability needs. more...

Yet again, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been caught trying to defrost planetary temperatures to make them fit with their doomsday models of global warming. Paul Homewood at Not a Lot of People Know That proved NOAA is lying.
From the article:
According to NOAA, last monthâ€™s mean temperature was just slightly less than the 1901-2000 average, similar to the overall Northeast trend.
In my previous work, I compared current temperatures with January 1943. According to NOAA, the average temperature for Central Lakes was 20.8F last month, compared with 18.7F in January 1943.
In other words, it was 2.1F warmer last month than in 1943.
The actual temperatures recorded in January 1943 are below, and come from the Monthly Climatology Report for NY State at the time.

This article at Canada Free Press hits the nail on the head.
From the article by A. Dru Kristenev"
"Nothing is more glaring than the demand by youth at these rallies, meetings and so-called town halls to impose age limits (21 years old) on the purchase of firearms. This is not to say that background checks or refusal to sell guns to teenagers should be disavowed. What is so foolish in giving children the microphone to erupt with unrestrained emotion, placing blame on inanimate objects rather than social engineering (of which theyâ€™ve no clue they are guinea pigs) is that many are unable to see or speak beyond blind hatred; hatred of people and things that theyâ€™ve been taught is how one shows love for the less fortunate. Completely upside-down thinking.
Not experienced and mature enough to own and operate a gun, yet they expect others to accept their opinion despite their self-declared immaturity
Inconsistently, students who call for age restrictions to keep someone of their own years from purchasing a gun, expect seasoned members of society to consider them expert witnesses on the issue. The contradiction comes in as they explain that they are not experienced and mature enough to own and operate a gun, yet they expect others to accept their opinion despite their self-declared immaturity. If you say youâ€™re too young to handle a gun, what makes you think youâ€™re not too young to have a rational opinion that older and wiser folks should take seriously?"
Nobody is making this point, which is excellent and should be obvious when one thinks about it. These children, given absolute moral authority by the media, are to be listened to when they say they aren't mature enough to be listened to.
We should take them at their word and apply their demands first to them. In a sane world where the media actually sought to find logic this is precisely what would happen. But not now; these kids are pawns and aren't wise enough to know it.
Dear Senator McCaskill,
Since you spend a lot of time these days lauding Republican lawmakers, why don't you switch party affiliations? It is clear that you fear for re-election in a conservative state, and you are trying to re-establish your credentials as a common sense, conservative heartland woman, even if your voting record is much closer to Elizabeth Warren than to Ted Cruz. By the way, do you still oppose the tax cut, in light of the economic boomlet of the last few months?

]Confederate flagâ€™ spotted in Seattle neighborhood. Newspaper contacted. Inquiry launched. Oops.
After a tip from a New York Times beststelling author that there was a Confederate Battle Flag (which the author and the Seattle people apparently did not know is distinct from the Confederate flag) a newspaper reporter was sent to investigate this horrible crime.
From the article:
"The paper said it drove to that corner in Seattle and found a flagpole with an American flag at the top and another flag below it â€” a red flag with blue stripes.
The Times said there was no wind, so the flag in question was hanging down and not spread out and "you could make some assumptions that it was the star-filled â€˜Southern crossâ€™ of the Confederacy.â€
What was the final verdict?
Then Darold Norman Stangeland, who lives at the corner house, solved the burgeoning controversy, the paper said.
"Thatâ€™s a Norwegian flag,â€ he told the Times. "Itâ€™s been up there since the start of the Olympics.â€

Over at Conservative HQ our good friend Jeffrey Rendall is trying to dismiss Marco Rubio's abandonment of his Second amendment position during the CNN Townmaul Democrat rally and gun hatefest.
Rendall states: more...
Looks like there were three other Broward County deputies who failed to enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while Nikolas Cruz was murdering teenagers by the gross.
"...Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, "arrive at the west side of Building 12â€ and "take a positionâ€ outside the school â€” but never go inside. The sheriffâ€™s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place.
Now CNN reports that the Coral Springs police officers claim three other Broward County deputies were outside the school but failed to go inside as well. They quote "Coral Springs sourcesâ€ who said the three "deputies had their pistols drawn and were behind their vehiclesâ€ when Coral Springs officers arrived. They said "not one of [the deputies] had gone into the school.â€"
What value is there in having police if they don't take action? The Left wants us to disarm ourselves and rely on civil authorities to protect us, yet frequently they fail when push comes to shove. One armed teacher could have ended the massacre at any time if he or she had the courage to act - and the weapon to act with.
They should change the name of Broward county. Might I suggest Coward County?
