    Washington Post ^ | 1/9/17 | Cleve R. Wootson Jr.
    The Dairy Queen owner shouting the n-word at Deianeira Ford told her he could say whatever he wanted at his fast-food restaurant — that any accusations and complaints she uttered would fall on deaf ears. Ford was vindicated two days later, when her Facebook post about the incident provoked outrage so strong that the Dairy Queen in Zion, Ill., didn’t open for business. But her victory was tempered by something even more troubling that she heard at a protest: Although she was the most vocal victim of the owner’s racism, she was not the first.

    Berkshire Hathaway Inc has been sued by a New York bicycle courier company over an alleged illegal scheme to cheat employers buying workers' compensation policies. The complaint, filed late Friday by Breakaway Courier Systems, came as Berkshire's Applied Underwriters unit faces scrutiny over its workers' compensation policies, including some that have been banned by California, Vermont and Wisconsin. Breakaway, with about 300 employees, accused Berkshire and Applied of "siphoning" premiums through a web of illegal shell companies, with diverted premiums going to unlicensed out-of-state insurers. The plan amounted to a "reverse Ponzi scheme" where unsuspecting employers expecting to buy affordable...

    As predictably as the arrival of the seasons, San Francisco decided to jump into the debate over North Carolina’s new privacy law less than 48 hours after it was signed. Rather than commenting on it or criticizing the message, the city elders decided to punish North Carolina by banning any official government travel to the state except in cases where it can’t be avoided.

    A Texas Whataburger employee was fired Wednesday for refusing to serve two police officers in what the company is describing as an appalling incident. Officers Michael Magovern and Cameron Beckham were working off-duty security at a construction site on I-35 early Wednesday morning when they decided to stop at the restaurant in Lewisville, FOX 26 reports. Magovern said before he could even place his order, the man behind the counter told him “We don’t serve police officers.” The two officers decided to leave and went and got food at Dairy Queen instead. "We were appalled to hear of an employee...

    Just telling it like it is — I like his style. Per Politico: John Metz, a restaurant franchisor who operates 48 locations of Hurricane Grill & Wings, several dozen Denny’s locations and a few Dairy Queens, told The Huffington Post Thursday that he’d join the growing list of restaurateurs piling purported Obamacare costs onto their customers and staff. In his case, though, he’s going to label it so all of his customers know about it. “If I leave the prices the same, but say on the menu that there is a 5 percent surcharge for Obamacare, customers have two choices....

    MESA, Ariz. - Police say a homeless woman entered a Dairy Queen restaurant and threatened employees with a grenade. When 30-year-old Renee Deshaies attempted to leave the scene near Olive and Main Street, she still had the grenade in her hand. The victims believed the grenade was real and feared for their safety.

She was arrested less than a mile away from the scene near Hobson and 1st Street. Deshaies faces disorderly conduct and misconduct with a...

    Okay, I have a simple rule for the 2012 nomination. I am personally DQ-ing ANY potential GOP candidate - my fav included (Sarah Palin) if they are not visible NOW in denouncing and howling loudly and publicly about the fraud going on in MN and AK. This is, at the moment, my new #1 qualification: That they went down swinging about this fraud, and tried to stop the Super-Majority while there was still time. Tim Pawlenty is currently the most impotent Governor in the universe. Minnesota burns, he fiddles. I can't believe there's a place in his mind that would...

She admits: "My boobs are killing me - and I don't know if I can stand the pain any longer. "My boobs have been a trademark for me - but I've paid one hell of a price."

    However, the consequences of such a significant troop withdrawal have a couple of downsides, too, most of all for the Germans. One mostly overlooked but important side effect is the departure of the US troops themselves. With their visible presence of African-Americans and immigrants from Asia and Latin America, they enriched the German shopping malls and restaurants, representing a multi-ethnic society. If they are gone, German society will lose a bit of color, so to speak. This step will play into the hands of right wing xenophobes whose aim is to purify the German nation. Here, by accident, the goal...

    Pro-Lifers Ensure Pampered Chef Profits No Longer Support Abortion By Candi Cushman Pro-life moms working for The Pampered Chef — the nation's largest direct-sales kitchenware company — have scored a major victory against the abortion industry by stopping pro-abortion donations from one of the world's largest megacorporations, Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

For years, the company has funneled millions of its profits into The Buffett Foundation, which in turn bankrolls several "reproductive rights"...

    (AgapePress) - A growing number of Christian, pro-life mothers are leaving lucrative careers with a national kitchenware company because of the new owner's support of abortion. "The Pampered Chef" is one of the nation's largest and fastest-growing kitchenware companies.

But now, according to Citizen magazine, many Christian mothers are walking away from the company because Pampered Chef's new owner, billionaire...
