Skip to comments.Chick Fil A video on Youtube(It's a redneck convention)
Posted on 08/10/2012 4:02:47 PM PDT by DallasBiff
The video starts out with a lesbian like woman stating how angry she is at the turnout at a southern California Chick Fil A, and then comes the "it's a redneck convention", by whom I think is her daughter, and then it is selected interviews to put conservatives in a bad light.
A new Brian Williams/Dan Rather in the making.
Yes, that’s true. Boy you sure are a glutton for Conservative punishment. LOL
Just kidding. We like Santa Barbara too.
For that matter, there are some great places to eat in or near Malibu too.
I first saw a drag boat race in the late 60s at SkiLand in Perris, CA. and I was hooked. My friends and I would travel anywhere to see them. I saw Smoke on The Water break the 200mph mark at Long Beach Marine Stadium. I saw that same boat crash at Irvine Lake years later. Lake Ming in Bakersfield was one of my favorite venues. I have many good memories connected with that place and with racing.
That's the one thing I really miss about So. Cal is the restaurants.
I used to get into discussions with Burbank Karl regarding some of the really good places that were around in the 70-80's and are no longer there.
Come to think of it, I haven't seen Burbank Karl around here for a long time....hope all is well with him.
Burbank Karl’s last post was April 15th this year.
I’m not sure what happened to him.
With regard to the places that catered to the middle-class people who used to live here, their base now lives in points east. It’s with a great deal of sorrow that I view this place today. I remember what it used to be.
So do you.
Take care FRiend, gotta run for now.
I laugh when I think of American Graffiti.
If people could see the area that was filmed in today, they’d toss their cookies.
You can’t even hang out in much of that area after dark.
I went to a Sears on the corner of Van Nuy’s Boulevard and Roscoe about five years ago. The signage was in Hispanic lettering about 5” tall, with English subtitled below in about 1.5” lettering. One of the people who worked there, warned me not to remain there after dark. That is where Adrays used to be. It was a very busy middle-class store, doing a massive volume in sales.
Van Nuys Boulevard looks like you took modern buildings, moved out all Caucasians, and moved in the inhabitants of Tijuana, after issuing each of them a shopping basket they could stroll the streets with.
I use to cruise that boulevard in the evenings. Now it’s a source of deep sorrow even to think about.
Me, too. And I miss that.
I used to work on Van Nuys. It was getting bad yrs ago when I left.
There was a huge turnout on 8/1/12 in Southern California, and yet you are negative.
You take are to Las Vegas Ron.
Lets try this again:
You take care too Las Vegas Ron. I’m using a new keyboard and I’ll be missing some key punches until I get used to it.
Thanks SCalGal. So do I.
LOL...Wednesday Nights on Van Nuys Blvd.
We must be around the same age, I'm 51.
I know exactly what you mean about the areas you wrote about, they were all nice, middle class areas and have since been run over.
Even where my Mom lives in Northridge, is getting to be the same way.
She is not far from CSUN, maybe a mile or so West and it was looking like a ghetto last I saw it about 2 years ago.
You and I have a perspective of what this "invasion" has done that too many other people don't.
I've been here in Vegas for about 12 years and would guess by now anything North or Riverside Drive is pretty much down the drain by now.
There was a nice showing on 08/01/12. I was happy to see it.
Look, I’m not going to be able to explain everything that has taken place in this region over the last twenty-five years or so. I do think you risk being woefully ill informed if you don’t listen to folks who have lived the area for close to fifty years as I have, and have witnessed what took place.
Would you rather live in an area with a robust middle class work force, or in a riddled section eight housing district?
Just sayin FRiend.
Too bad LV Ron, me and you will not see a cent from the SS(Social Security), while Doughtyone is the guy who will suck the system dry.
The chicken biscuit was very good. The biscuit is much flakier and tastier than the Mc Donalds sausage biscuit. I am going to be a regular at Chick fil A.
I’m 61. I used to work at the Exxon on the corner of Van Nuys Boulevard and Sherman way when I was a kid.
The San Fernando Valley is gone. The areas west of downtown L. A. that used to be classy two story dwellings are now run down, paint peeling, once gain... shopping baskets on the side-walks.
Large $500 million dollar high schools in downtown Los Angeles are now almost fully occupied by the children of illegal immigrants.
We’re talking about four of them that I am aware of.
We talking state of the art structures, with hardly a U. S. Citizen attending.
I could go on but there are some parts of this I can’t address. Other parts, there isn’t enough time.
Me thinks you owe a heart felt sincere apology to D O.
