This all sounds like democrat entitlement mentality.

This happens quite a bit lately.

Honestly, I'm ok with this, as long as it's all religious headwear that's allowed including yarmulkas.  However, if any religion's items are banned, all are banned.  Equal for all...
They would allow anything until the 1st Sikh is sworn in wearing his blade.

My guess is that the store manager or an employee spotted and recognized them as previous dine-and-dashers while they were still in line. Then when they got to the point where they start their order, the manager stepped in and told them, "Show me the money," before work was started on their order. That part makes sense.

What does not make sense is that without speaking with the manager and coworkers or verifying from security footage that these were known dine-and-dashers, Chipotle Corporate knuckled under to Race Card players. The messages that sent are toxic:

* Chipotle Corporate told its employees that they do not trust them and will act without knowledge when complaints are received;

* Chipotle Corporate told Race Card players they can commit fraud with impunity.

How about this
1) produce a valid id when voting and states that fail to require this lose their electoral college votes
2) absentee ballots are counted immediately after midnight on voting day and the total number of votes is recorded with the state election office. mandate that absentee ballots get priority mail treatment, at US Gov't expense
3) after polls close calculate the total number of votes taken and record that count with the state election office within a half hour of the polls closing.
4) the total votes in a county cannot exceed the total votes recorded for that day.
5) start tallying the actual votes.
6) any extra or "found" ballots are disqualified from any future recount.
7) eliminate provisional ballots.

That about takes care of the problem.

Dead voters should be removed from the rolls automatically. Every hospital in the country submits a death certificate for deceased people to their local county records, yes?  Mandate that those counties then forward a certified copy to the elections board to clear the voter rolls.
Total number of votes over 80% of registered voters initiates an automatic audit, where election board has to show their sign in books to state canvassing board.
Strict chain of custody by observers from both parties from polling place to counting location.  Votes that do not have that chain of custody are not counted and immediately destroyed due to potential contamination.
If found to be improperly conducted, then election workers are charged with election fraud, which carries felony charges and permanent disqualification for voting, elected office, and public service.

... my husband is still paying on a student loan ... We are both 61 years old

I'm a few years older than these two (less than 5 years' difference, FWIW). I had a student loan when I was in college in the '70s. And it was paid off during Carter's Presidency. So WTH did samplegirl's hubby do? Not pay it off in the 70s/80s? Get a less than useful degree later in life?

I lost my job, my husband lost his job and we both had to take lower paying jobs and my husband is still paying on a student loan in order to have his mediocre job for way less pay. We lost almost all of our 401k during the Bush years as we were unable to roll ours over as he did during that time. We are both 61 years old and struggle with arthritis because neither of us ever had easy jobs.
Buying lottery tickets would have been a better investment.  :rotf:

Jeez, who cares and/or even gets into political arguments at family gatherings?  Recall a couple of times my brother in law & some of us would be enjoying a scotch & cigar after Thanksgiving dinner.  We might comment briefly on politics.  Mostly superficial sports stuff, work things, family, etc.

Baffles me that people are so consumed by politics and unhinged hatred during every waking hour.

The primitive is looking at it all wrong. This is better.

Didnt vote for Hillary Clinton. Didn't vote for Patrick Murphy. Didn't vote for Andrew Gillum. Didn't vote for Bill Nelson.

See!! Makes so much more sense now.
