So far no changes in the libel laws. But now the President of the US is suggesting for some improvements.

As he tweeted. ;)



So making a suggestion and sending a tweet makes him a 'king'.

I didn't realize that was all it took to become a king... :roll: :roll:

You are right.

No king would say something like: "only I..."

Only mad dictators would say that.

And by the way, where is the wall? :roll:

Look, nemo, try to understand. When Trump says he "has a nuclear button...and it actually works", he isn't actually saying he is going to nuke the PRK.


Similarly, when he tweets about the Woodward book and libel laws he isn't LITERALLY calling for new libel laws.

I know it is complicated but try to keep up.

Well, just because the little fingers are on the big button, I am worried.

And about the libel laws is kind of the wall thing, Trump does not actually want a wall. :lol:


I think if he says it person 498 times then one can assume it's a real plan.

Congress voted $1.6 billion in funding towards the wall:
https://www.texastribune.org/2018/03/22 ... r-wall-fu/

That of course will not fund a wall across the southern border, from the Pacific to the Gulf of Mexico, but then Rome wasn't built in a day.

Small steps. He will probably get additional border wall funding by the time his terms as President end in 2025. ;-)

Who the fuck cares?

If President Trump gets most (or even just further extends) of the wall built and that deters hundreds of thousands or even millions of illegals from entering the US, that will save the country many times that sum in the long run in expenses we avoid in having to prosecute and house criminal aliens, money spent on schools, welfare etc., losses to US citizens from the effects of the crimes they commit, etc.

Meanwhile, other Red Hen rest'ts are complaining of harassment and boycotts. Well, guys, you're franchisees of a national chain that now has a stain on its reputation because of the actions of one franchise owner. I don't approve that people are sending mean mail to other restaurant owners, but boycotting a franchise is part and parcel of political economy in the modern world. It's OK. I won't shop at Hobby Lobby because of the founders/owners' politics. I won't shop at Mao Mart because of their policy of screwing American manufacturers and enabling the PRC. If conservatives avoid Red Hen rest'ts because of one franchise owner's actions, tough luck. Conservative consumers get to make that sort of choice too.


It now turns out that the effects of the one Red Hen restaurant have rippled even further than just other Red Hen franchisees:

Refusal To Serve Sarah Sanders Ruined Summer Tourism Biz Of Entire Town

by Warner Todd Huston and Jeffdunetz | Sep 3, 2018 | Economy, Politics

Remember when the owner of The Red Hen, a Virginia eatery, kicked Presidential spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders out of her restaurant last June? Well, three months later tourism in the region is still dead thanks to the Trump-hating restaurant making the area seem uninviting to visitors. And now locals are starting to worry that the Trump haters have destroyed their bread and butter.

Whattayaknow! America is a free country, and people can refuse to vacation in a municipality where a restaurant can deny service to a decent person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family because she works for a Republican President.

Lexington, Virginia, is the small town where the owners of the Red Hen restaurant sparked controversy by literally kicking Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family out of their establishment. But now, the Associated Press says that the town’s tourism board is pumping emergency money into advertising to entice visitors to visit the town because after the ignorant Red Hen owners perpetrated their dastardly deed tourists have entirely abandoned the area.

According to these reports, Lexington’s summer tourism crashed and burned thanks to the negative image that the Red Hen forced onto the area. The loss of money to local businesses has been so severe that the regional tourism board is launching a last minute summer plea to tourists with a new digital marketing campaign.


“Normally that money is saved. But the Rockbridge Regional Tourism Board agreed the region is in desperate need of positive coverage,” the AP wrote.

The tourism board serves Lexington, where The Red Hen is located, and other communities that are about three hours from Washington.

The Red Hen incident in June prompted thousands of a calls and emails to the tourism office. They’re still coming in.


The Roanoke Virginia Times spoke to the marketing director for the Rockbridge Regional Tourism Board:

Director of Marketing Patty Williams said the area is still feeling effects from the controversy — the tourism office received a letter Thursday from a family in Georgia who said they would never come back to the area because of what happened. And during the immediate aftermath of the incident, the tourism office received thousands of phone calls and emails.

“For a town our size, it was a significant impact,” Williams said

(…)

“We would certainly try to portray ourselves as a friendly, welcoming place,” she said. “And focus our marketing toward accomplishing that goal.”


Thus, the town’s tourism suffered thanks to the angry leftists who has made Lexington look like a bastion of hate. Who wants to go to a town where you might get refused service if they happen to find out you support a politician they don’t like?

Who would risk being treated like garbage when you are just trying to relax and enjoy yourself?


That is precisely the problem these folks in Virginia are facing. Thanks to the hate-filled liberals in their midst Lexington has earned a reputation as a town of hate. Who wants to deal with that on vacation?

If you don’t remember the incident, it occurred late in June. Here is how Politico reported it:

Sanders first chose to address a personal experience from over the weekend, when she was asked to leave a restaurant, the Red Hen, in Lexington, Virginia, because of the staff’s disagreement with the policies she helps promote.

“I was asked to leave because I work for President Trump,” she said, careful not to personally attack the restaurant owner as she read from a prepared statement. “We are allowed to disagree but we should be able to do so freely and without fear of harm.”

“A Hollywood actor publicly encouraged people to kidnap my children,” Sanders continued. “This weekend, a member of Congress called for people to push back and make clear to those serving their country and this administration that they are not welcome anywhere, any time, for anything.”

All of it, she said, was “unacceptable.”


So, Lexington has a huge problem. Thanks to liberals, their town is now marked as a town of hate. And it’s hitting them hard in the wallet.

Much of this Post was first seen at Eagle Rising


It's sad the other businesses (and the rest of the Lexington, VA community for that matter) are having to suffer for the stupidity of the staff at one business (The Red Hen) in the town.

Hopefully, others will have seen the effect this had and will act a bit more wisely in the future.

Never underestimate the lengths Trump Derangement Syndrome sufferers will go to.

It's apparent there are plenty who would send their own interests up in flames in order to make a wailing TDS statement.

Dad in station wagon: Where do you guys want to stop for lunch. The Red Hen or the Chipotle with the E. coli flavored burritos?

Mom: Let's go to Red Hen They support LGBT causes. Might be safer. Just take off that stupid hat.

Kids: CHIPOTLE! CHIPOTLE! They support progressive causes too!

They forgot to add "violence and intolerance."

It's like anything the left touches; it turns to hate, violence and intolerance. No wonder they stopped calling themselves progressives and now seem to like being called socialists. Just one more step left and we get the big "C".

Here in Spain a lot of folks really hate Franco. And when I hear them talk about him, I ask them, "if communism had not existed, would you even know who Franco was?"
