  • Rogue Dairy Queen has been ignoring corporate HQ since 1949

    NY Post ^ | 7-23-15 | AP
    MOORHEAD, Minn. — The Dairy Queen in downtown Moorhead has been thumbing its nose at corporate HQ pretty much since it opened in 1949, despite some efforts from the home office to have the store mind its Ds and Qs. And it’s a recipe that seems to be working for one of the few DQs in the country still operating under a 66-year-old contract that allows them to dish up throwback treats alongside the standard corporate-approved items, a combination that turns Main Avenue and 8th Street into a hopping, slightly retro summer hangout. Though the restaurant shuts down in the...

    Two young sisters with an "entrepreneurial spirit" set up a lemonade stand in Overton, Texas, to raise money for their dad's Father's day gift, their mom said. But Andria and Zoey Green's business closed abruptly Monday after police came by to tell them their stand was illegal without a city Peddler's Permit, according to Overton Police Department Chief Clyde Carter. "It's illegal to sell lemonade without a permit," Carter told ABC News today. "But we didn't tell them to shut down, we just asked them to get a permit." The girls' mother, Sandi Evans, said they went to try to...

    Elionardo Juarez-Escobar, a 42-year-old Honduran landscaper, was driving through a Pittsburgh suburb one evening last April when he saw a police sobriety check ahead. Drunk and without a license, he tried to avoid it. New Sewickley Township police managed to pull him over anyway. When they did, they found empty beer cans in the back seat, a minor named Henry Gomez on the passenger side and an inebriated driver. Escobar failed a field sobriety test, blowing 0.18, more than twice Pennsylvania's legal limit. He was arrested and charged with two counts of driving under the influence, corruption of minors, furnishing...

    What Winston Churchill said of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles — that he was a bull who carried his own china shop around with him — is true of Susan Rice, who is, to be polite, accident-prone . When in September 2012 she was deputed to sell to the public the fable that the Benghazi attack was just an unfortunately vigorous movie review — a response to an Internet video — it could have been that she, rather than Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was given this degrading duty because Rice was merely U.N. ambassador, an ornamental position at...

The channel will be available through Tapp, the digital video service founded by former CNN chief Jon Klein and former NBC Universal entertainment executive Jeff Gaspin. Subscriptions will cost $10 per month. Rogue is expected to launch in April or May, and it would be one of the first of the digital channels offered by Tapp.

    President Obama’s repeated use of presidential powers is causing a tough problem — his own supporters now expect him to use it to achieve everything they want. From immigration to the minimum wage, congressional Democrats and liberal activists this week urged Mr. Obama to declare an end run around Capitol Hill, assert executive authority and make as much progress as he can on the expansive agenda he laid out for his second term A day after Mr. Obama denounced income inequality, progressive lawmakers said he should take the lead by issuing an executive order requiring all federal contractors to pay...

    The Obama administration and its defenders have done their best to downplay the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups, and to distance the president from the scandal. But in doing so they have made numerous claims that have that turned out to be grossly misleading — at best. 1. It was a few rogue agents in Cincinnati This claim has crumbled in recent weeks. Lois Lerner, the IRS’s director of Exempt Organizations, who has refused to testify before Congress, was the first to blame “our line people in Cincinnati” for initiating the targeting. Former IRS commissioner Steven Miller said two “rogue”...

Griffin said a Congressional source told him that the acting commissioner of the IRS, Steven Miller, has identified two “rogue” employees in the agency’s Cincinnati office, who he characterized as “off the reservation.” The commissioner reportedly said the two, as yet unnamed, employees were “principally responsible for overly aggressive handling of Tea Party requests for tax exempt status over the past two years.” Another source, according to Griffin, said...

    The Obama Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says no law empowers any judge to stop it from conducting illegal scientific experiments on seniors, children and the sick. That astounding assertion will be tested Friday, when a federal district court in Alexandria decides whether it has jurisdiction to hear claims made by the American Tradition Institute that EPA researchers are exposing unwary and genetically susceptible senior citizens to air pollutants the agency says can cause a variety of serious cardiac and respiratory problems, including sudden death. Although the lawsuit only addresses ongoing, purportedly illegal experimentation being carried out at an EPA laboratory...

    When Warren or Obama proudly announce that business did not create a building, that someone else created the building, they are highlighting their socialist belief and proud of it. They are misguided and it would be cute if such ignorance was not in power doing horrific damage to our country. It is appalling. For a business to have contracted a builder to build the building the business and the contractor had to agree upon a trade off of mutually rewarding benefits for each party. The business gets a building and the builders get money to use where they see fit....

It’s a murder-suicide — because it don’t think he’ll grow his category there.”Tough words, but Stutzman (always a great quote machine) isn’t alone in likening Gingrich to a dangerous character these days.

Not complying with congressional subpoena is technically an illegal act, and Solomon could be charged with contempt of Congress if Issa, a leading Republican, chooses to proceed down that path. “Your continued personal obstruction, lack of compliance with a validly issued congressional subpoena and false statements to the committee are unacceptable,” Issa said in a Monday letter to Solomon. “The NLRB is acting as a rogue agency that believes it does not have to fully answer to...

    CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) — Police closed down a lemonade stand in Coralville last week, telling its 4-year-old operator and her dad that she didn't have a permit. An officer told Abigail Krutsinger's father Friday that she couldn't run the stand as RAGBRAI bicyclers poured into Coralville. A city ordinance says food vendors must apply for a permit and get a health inspection. Abigail's dad, Dustin Krutsinger, said the ordinance and its enforcers are going too far if they force a 4-year-old to abandon her lemonade stand.

The measure was introduced by House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton of Michigan. A companion measure introduced in the Senate by Sen.

In a stunning, shameless act of naked hate and bigotry, Barack Hussein Obama will align with the Organization of the Islamic Conference at the UN to ethnically cleanse Israel of the Jewish people.

The documents, published in the Sydney Morning Herald on Monday, also reveal that Australia's top security organization believes Tehran sees a "grand bargain" with the United States as its best way to ensure national security. But the Office of National Assessments (ONA) shared Washington's fears that Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons could lead to conventional or nuclear war, noting a...

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il has now left Beijing and returned home after a typically secretive visit, his first trip abroad in four years. Kim's last trip was also to China, the North's dominant benefactor; his core mission was undoubtedly to ensure continued Chinese support for his ironfisted rule. Also undoubtedly central was North Korea's nuclear weapons program. President Obama has been silent for many long months on Pyongyang's continuing nuclear threat, but silence does not equal good news. Although "all quiet" on the North Korean nuclear front might seem to indicate that the menace is receding, precisely the...

Al Gore says despite the CRU e-mails, the situation is of the utmost gravity. In a Dec. 9 Washington Post op-ed, Sarah Palin noted that the Climate-gate e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia "reveal that leading climate 'experts' deliberately destroyed records, manipulated data to 'hide the decline' in global temperatures and tried to silence their critics from publishing in peer-reviewed journals." This did not sit well with Gore. "The entire North...

More than anything else to that point, it proved what my parents had been trying to instill in me all along: that hard work and passion matter most of all (41)." Isn’t it nice to hear a public figure extol the virtue of hard work for a change? The chattering...

She said the governor didn’t need it. And as soon as she got elected, she sold it. In the run-up to 2012, Palin perhaps has found a similar object of public distain to use to her advantage should she run for president: The much-ridiculed teleprompter.

She outlines her life and career, helping to explain how she became the wonderful person she is today. The real meat ot the book for me was Sarah's account of the political and personal relationships that developed during her time as governor of Alaska and Republican Vice Persidential candidate in 2008. She shows how her enemies - both Democrat and Republican - relentlessly attacked her with false charges, hindering her campaign for Vice President and her ability to govern...

    As Sarah Palin emerges again as a potential political player, we will see an inevitable, grotesque, re-enactment of the Palin attacks, the likes of which had never before been heaped upon man, woman, or beast in the political realm. One should remember the eerie depths liberals plunged to when degrading Palin as a political candidate, by attacking not just her political views, but by attacking her as a wife and mother. We should not forget that, despite all the liberal rhetoric being brought forth promoting the rightness of empowering diversity, the left—and all its agents—attacked Sarah Palin with reckless ferocity...

    AP source: Palin book sells big in first week By HILLEL ITALIE (AP) – 44 minutes ago NEW YORK — Sarah Palin appears well on her way to becoming a million-selling author.

The official was not authorized to release the sales figure and asked not to be identified. Palin's memoir came out Nov. 17 with a first printing of 1.5 million copies.

    I know the news is about a day old but what the hell? Any opportunity to kick a blue-blood ignoramus like Martha Stewart, I'm game. As if anyone cared what Martha Stewart had to say about pretty much anything, the non-domestic warlord unloaded on Sarah Palin to "Showbiz Tonight" producer Jenny D'Attoma. "She's a very boring to me. Very boring, and a very, to me, kind of a, a dangerous person. I mean, to, she's dangerous. " She then goes on to tell the pop-tart journalist that she doesn't really know anything about Sarah Palin outside of what her medicated...

    Finished 'Going Rogue' last night - and had a few observations. Be interested in reading other FReepers thoughts as well. 1. Loved the book; the story of the Heath family packing up and heading to Alaska mirrors what my father did, and what I did also.2. I think she was correct in getting her side of the story on her campaign experiences - get it in print unfiltered to the public. 3. No way she endorses Simcox over McCain in Arizona, her admiration and loyalty for McCain goes to the bone. 4. She is definitely running for President.

    FORT WAYNE, IN (Indiana's NewsCenter) --- A Meijer's Department Store in Northeast Fort Wayne is preparing for what could be an onslaught of customers looking for a chance to meet a big star in the world of politics. Sarah Palin didn't get elected Vice-President, but she figures to be a huge hit at an event here in town on Thursday. Palin will only be in the city a short time to sign copies of her new book, but the possibility of getting to meet her up close and personal is expected to draw supporters like a magnet. The Meijer at...
