    Liberals’ outrage at the failure of the Supreme Court to excoriate Christian bakery owner Jack Phillips last year for declining a request to create a wedding cake for a gay couple was palpable. Equally palpable was their enthusiastic support for Cracker Barrel’s decision earlier this month to refuse service to a man who said LGBTQ people should be put on trial and executed if convicted.That is a problem. Here’s why.If Jack Phillips is in the wrong for refusing to serve certain customers because doing would violate his beliefs, then Cracker Barrel is in the wrong for doing the same thing.If...

    CBRL reported a decent Q1. Comps were positive but only because of strong pricing; traffic and the retail stores were weak. Margin growth continued but at nearly 21 times this year's earnings, the stock is way too expensive. Cracker Barrel (NASDAQ:CBRL) has long been an example for others in the restaurant sector. The company has bucked weak trends in casual dining and its retail stores have helped shoulder the burden as well. CBRL's unique model has worked extremely well over the past few years and it pays a sizable dividend to boot. After a nice Q1 report, the stock is...
  • CULTURE Official Petition to Change the name of Cracker Barrel Has Gone Viral

    Liberals and all their race-baiting have found racism in everything. All that is about to change and the tide is about to turn thanks to Ryan Koch from Des Moines, IA. He believes that the restaurant chain, Cracker Barrel should be changed to Caucasian Barrel. Mr. Koch has started a petition on Change.org demanding the establishment change their name. Did I mention its hilariously awesome and mocks the race baiters out there? I say all of us European Americans start protesting C****er Barrel. It uses an offensive slur and it is deeply offensive and mocks our long and proud heritage....

    Like most 8-year-olds, Myles Eckert was already dreaming up ways he could spend a $20 bill he had just discovered laying in a Cracker Barrel parking lot earlier this month. I kind of wanted to get a video game, but then I decided not to, the child recounted to CBS News. Thats because Eckert saw Lt. Col. Frank Dailey enter the restaurant. The man in uniform changed his mind. Why? Because he was a soldier, and soldiers remind me of my dad, Eckert explained to CBS. So, instead of purchasing something for himself, Eckert did something very different on Feb....

    It happened at a Cracker Barrel, of all places. As the security camera shows, Dailey entered the restaurant on Feb. 7 for an early lunch. At about the same time, 8-year-old Myles Eckert came in with his family. Myles was very excited. He'd just found a $20 bill in the parking lot. He'd started thinking of what he could spend it on. "I kind of wanted to get a video game, but then I decided not to," Myles says. He changed his mind when he saw the guy in uniform.

    It seems that the A&E Duck Dynasty controversy has come to a conclusion. In the aftermath of this dispute, after all the words exchanged have been reviewed, what can we learn? I believe that the public responses surrounding this recent chain of events reveal several observable trends and ideologies about us as a society. Thus, the following theses presented below are based upon what I believe is the trending American ideology and ethos towards scripture, ethics, and what it values. Thesis #1: Society is unable to apply the simple rules of grammar to scripture. In the debated GQ Interview, it...

    The Cracker Barrel customer had a checkbook, and what he wrote in it after lunch Thursday would make his happy server even happier, but first he and his friend had a few questions. They asked the hostess: Can you give us your grumpiest server? We want to make them laugh. Sorry, the hostess said. Nobody grumpy here. I’ll seat you with our happiest. At Table 222, they asked Abigail Sailors for the special — turkey and dressing — and for eggs and sausage. Then they asked the 18-year-old why she was so happy. And over the course of their meals,...

    Cracker Barrel has become the first sponsor to cut bait with "Duck Dynasty" ... but not entirely. The Southern-themed food chain reacted to Phil Robertson's anti-gay comments by removing "selected products which we were concerned might offend some of our guests" from their stores and restaurants. We called a bunch of Cracker Barrel stores, and the managers told us the products that were removed were the ones that had Phil's face plastered on the packaging. Almost to a person, the managers added, "We still offer a wide variety of Duck Commander products," and then we heard a click. C.B. offers...

    A Strongsville man fetched a shotgun and killed his wife in a restaurant gift shop Thursday after she told him during a birthday dinner for one of their daughters that she was leaving him. Kevin Allen, 51, then hunted down his 10-year-old daughters in a restroom, killing Kerri on her birthday with one blast to her belly and critically injuring Kayla, a source familiar with the investigation said Friday. Minutes later, police officers from this Cleveland suburb confronted the still-armed Allen in the restaurant doorway and killed him with a barrage of gunfire. No other patrons or employees were injured....

    BROOKLYN, Ohio (AP) Police shot and killed an armed man at a crowded Cracker Barrel restaurant where a woman and a girl had been killed and another person was wounded, sending customers fleeing out the back door. The restaurant said the violence appeared to be the result of a domestic dispute between two customers. Authorities said a woman called 911 from the restaurant Thursday night, saying her husband was upset because she told him she was leaving him. He left the restaurant and was circling the parking lot, the woman told police.
