    The New York Daily News ^ | May 19, 2016 | Shaun King
    Last Sunday, Krystal Lake, a 22-year-old Home Depot employee on Staten Island, was photographed wearing a hat that says, “America Was Never Great.” It's in the same font and style of Trump's campaign slogan of "Make America Great Again." Of course, death threats and hate mail targeting her have come pouring in — which, if you think about it, lends itself to her feeling like she was right to wear the hat in the first place. About two months ago, I wrote a column about the word "again" in Trump's slogan. I think it's a racist dog whistle and it...

    Sadly, Ms. Lake is unaware of our proud history and what needs to be done to restore our country’s greatness. She does not appreciate our many freedoms and American exceptionalism It is sad that so many of our young people today are clueless about our country’s distinguished history. In a troubling story this week that generated national headlines, a 22-year-old Home Depot employee, Krystal Lake, of Staten Island, New York, was pictured at work wearing a hat that read, “America Was Never Great.” The disturbing image sparked an explosion of online comments from across the nation with people expressing both...

    Customers at a Staten Island Home Depot were shocked to see one of the company’s employees wearing an “America Was Never Great” hat earlier this week. Krystal Lake, 22, of St. George got political during a shift on Tuesday. Her twist on Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s slogan was immediately shared online. Ms. Lake said the social media furor between those who said she correct, and those who thought she was both unprofessional and wrong, was unexpected.

    Another example of a concealed carry citizen saving the day unfolded in Texas last week. At a Home Depot store in Amarillo, a man suspected of stealing power tools was confronted by the store’s loss prevention officer in the parking lot, reported KVII-TV. The two ended up in a struggle after the officer caught the suspect, 35 year-old Ricky Solis, when he tried to flee. Another man stepped in and tried to help Solis escape, police said, kicking the loss prevention officer in the face. The second suspect then retrieved a tire iron from his car and allegedly returned to...

    So we bought a shed from Home Depot. I really despise Home Depot, but the price was right (next shed size up with a door wide enough to meet our needs is 30% more expensive at any shed supply store we looked at) and it was locally available and had a 10 year warranty. The shed we bought was advertised on the HD website as having a 64" wide door opening, which we knew would be tight, but would work for our mower. We bought the shed and material for the foundation with cash. My husband worked for 2 days...

    he Home Depot partnered with the Council on American-Islamic Relations–a group that has alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood–in order to help foster “cultural awareness” among its employees. CAIR is known for its radical agenda and labels any critic of Islam as “Islamophobic.” The United Arab Emirates has gone so far as to call CAIR a terrorist organization for their shady dealings. CAIR issued a release stating that the goal of the training was to educate Home Depot employees on how to better meet the needs of Muslim customers.

    If Governor Christie does decide to run for president, he’s already locked up one of the most prolific fundraisers in Republican presidential politics.  Ken Langone, 79, is the billionaire founder of Home Depot whose willingness to back Christie for president not only creates the possibility of millions of dollars in donations but also the potential to block possible rivals by keeping them from adding this powerful ally.  “I’ll do everything I can do to help get him elected,” Langone said in a recent interview. “Whatever he asks me to do, I’ll do. I’m particularly good at fundraising, so I suspect...

    Trader Joe's, the popular privately held supermarket, previously applauded for offering coverage to their part-time employees, is reversing course and, instead of coverage, employees will receive a $500 check. Trader Joe's argues that the employees will likely be able to find a similar plan at a similar cost on the Affordable Care Act's freshly minted state-based insurance exchanges. Of course, the cost is similar if you add in the government subsidies that those low-income employees are likely eligible to receive. As Trader Joe's was followed by Home Depot, this could be the start of a potentially unintended consequence of Obamacare:...

    Home Depot is transferring roughly 20,000 part-time workers to the taxpayer-funded Obamacare exchanges, marking another step in the nationwide rollout of President Barack Obama’s most prized accomplishment. “Unfortunately, the ACA [Affordable Care Act] precludes us from offering the limited liability medical plan we’ve been offering the part-time associates,” said Stephen Holmes, the company’s director of corporate communications. The 20,000 employees will have more options on government-run exchanges, he told The Daily Caller. Home Depot Inc. employs roughly 340,000 people, but declined to give a precise number of people who will be impacted by the change. The government-run exchange requires people...

    OTTAWA - Home Depot Canada is considering policy changes after a greeter lost part of her nose when she tried to pet a customer's pet Shih Tzu dog in suburban Ottawa. Greeter Anne Riel, 39, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. the little dog was in a shopping cart being pushed by its unidentified 74-year-old owner Friday when the dog bit her. "No sooner had I slightly bent down … [when] the dog bit my nose with its entire mouth," Riel said. A small piece of her nose is missing after emergency plastic surgery and Riel will need more procedures, the...

    This one somehow slipped through the cracks earlier in the week. Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot, is tired of clueless dilettantes who couldn’t operate a lemonade stand without ending up a hundred grand in debt portraying the business community as “the problem.” Marcus was on CNBC and profusely apologized — tongue-in-cheek of course — for helping to create over 300,000 jobs:

    BOYCOTT! The Home Depot promotes the homosexual agenda For several years, The Home Depot has given its financial and corporate support to open displays of homosexual activism on main streets in America's towns. Rather than remain neutral in the culture war, The Home Depot has chosen to sponsor and participate in numerous gay pride parades and festivals. Most grievous is The Home Depot's deliberately exposing small children to lascivious displays of sexual conduct by homosexuals and cross-dressers, which are a common occurrence at these events. Judge for yourself by reviewing the photos below, taken during recent homosexual events sponsored by...

    SNIPPET: "Home Depot has a history of supporting homosexual events, the most recent parades in Portland, Maine, and in Boston -- that according to Randy Sharp of the American Family Association. "The worst offense is that Home Depot has set up kids' workshops at these gay pride festivals," explains AFA's director of special projects." SNIPPET: "While homosexuals, who make up about two percent of the population, might applaud Home Depot for its actions, AFA contends the corporation is taking the risk of offending and losing business from the other 98 percent of the public."

    SAN FRANCISCO -- Cities can prohibit day laborers from soliciting work from passing drivers, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday. In a 2-1 decision, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said an ordinance in Redondo Beach (Los Angeles County) prohibiting anyone on a street or sidewalk from seeking work from motorists, and prohibiting drivers from stopping to offer a job, is a valid safety measure that does not interfere with free speech.The ordinance does not regulate the content of a day laborer's speech, only the location, Judge Sandra Ikuta said in the majority opinion. She said...

Lady at the checkout noticed my USMC hat and jacket and gave me 10% off. Anybody else see this in their part of the country? Oh, and welcomed the Merry Christmas greeting. Semper fi
