  • Custard Stand Controversy Over 'English Only' Policy

    A popular custard stand in Milwaukee — rumored to be the inspiration for Arnold's Drive-In on TV's "Happy Days" — says its employees must speak English on the job and can't take orders given in foreign languages. Ron Schneider, the owner of Leon's Frozen Custard, a family owned business since 1942, is standing by his 10-year-old policy, which only recently came to light among customers. "Hey, c'mon! It is America. We've spoken English for a long, long time. Any foreign language is going to be a problem," Schneider told "What I'm trying to avoid is when people come up...

    Perhaps emboldened by the colorful, hometown atmosphere, a feisty Jeb Bush walked into a room full of supporters Monday, greeted by much more excitement than he's used to on the campaign trail, where he's struggling to break past the low single digits in the polls. A diverse crowd was chanting his name as the smell of croquetas, a Cuban breakfast staple, filled the room and supporters sipped on cafe con leche. The Republican presidential candidate held his first post-Christmas campaign event at a Cuban comfort food restaurant here called Chico's, where an amped-up crowd packed into the brick walls to...
  • Marco Rubio in Spanish: Obama’s First Executive Amnesty ‘Important,’ People ‘Benefiting from It’

    04/18/2015 4:31:29 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 147 replies ^ | 4/17/15 | Matthew Boyle
    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said he believes that President Barack Obama’s first executive amnesty for so-called DREAMers—the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)—is “important” and he won’t reverse it himself if elected president. He delivered these remarks in a Spanish-language interview he gave to Univision’s Jorge Ramos. “I believe DACA is important. It can’t be terminated from one moment to the next, because there are already people benefiting from it,” Rubio said in Spanish on Ramos’s television program, according to an English translation provided by the media service Grabien. “But yes, it is going to...

    MK Uri Ariel, the head of Bayit Yehudi's coalition negotiations team, said in an interview published Friday that the hareidi leadership is sowing unnecessary panic regarding the plans to enlist hareidi men to the military and national service. Ariel told hareidi newspaper Hamevaser that Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid – Bayit Yehudi's prospective partner in the coalition, which insists on toughening up laws regarding hareidi enlistment – is not against allowing Torah students to be exempted from service. "He is not trying to close down the yeshivas," explained Ariel. "He recognizes the Torah students. There is an argument about numbers,...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — They have debated on the same stage five times, but rarely have the contrasts between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry been more in evidence than during separate appearances here Friday night. It was Romney the careful technocrat versus Perry the unplugged preacher. snip One such question came from a man who told Romney that “everything you said in your introduction was wonderful” but who questioned some of the details of the former Massachusetts governor’s priorities. “I’m just not seeing how that adds up,” he said. snip An hour later, Perry took the stage at a downtown hotel...

    Univisión's Republican presidential debate has been called off after only one contender agreed to participate, though the network hopes to reschedule. The debate for Democrats is still on for Sept. 9. Univisión planned to air the first presidential debates in Spanish on Sept. 9 and 16, one for Democrats, the other for Republicans, trumpeting a national coming-out party for Hispanic voters. Except Republican candidates aren't coming. Only Ariz. Sen. John McCain agreed to participate in the event at the University of Miami. So much for Sept. 16. ''That date is off the table,'' university spokeswoman Bárbara Gutiérrez said Wednesday. She...

    PHOENIX (Reuters) - For day laborers seeking work in a sun-baked parking lot on Thursday, defeat of U.S. President George W. Bush's plans for an immigration overhaul has set back their dreams of a normal life. The bill, which sought to give legal status to many of the 12 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States, failed to get enough support in a make-or-break vote in the U.S. Senate. Workers standing around in searing heat outside a building materials store in Phoenix said hopes of an aboveboard life in this country of immigrants had crashed following news of the...

    Should businesses like Geno's Steaks be allowed to make customers speak English when requesting service. Yes, of course. A common language is of great benefit and it is foolish to expect those in a small shop to be able to communicate effectively in all the possible languages. No, only a bigot would even think to ask such a question. Multi-cultural diversity is good. We should use the bar scene in the original Star Wars as the model for our nation.

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Ohio Civil Rights Commission has ruled a sign in the window of a southwest Ohio tavern declaring, "For Service, Speak English," is discriminatory. The panel said Thursday the Pleasure Inn on U.S. 42 in Mason, northeast of Cincinnati, violated the state civil rights law. Commission spokeswoman Christia Alou White said the tavern could be ordered to remove the sign, to pay for advertisements about nondiscrimination, and its staff could be ordered to undergo diversity training or cultural sensitivity training. The business has 10 days to ask the commission to reconsider. The tavern owner's lawyer declined to...

    Everyone seems to have their terrorism antenna up nowadays. Some of the results, like the "zero tolerance" at airports, has quite obviously crossed the stupid line. But, that's only because Congress interfered, passing inappropriate legislation. Where Congress has not (yet) interfered, things seem to be handled on a more adult level. The trucking industry is a case in point. Those of us who have had the unfortunate experience of witnessing a large gas truck burn understand what an eventful situation that can be. Other hazardous materials transported by trucks from coast to coast every day of the year could cause...
