@Mirurax – From what is reported in the article, it was not a store policy to refuse sales to military personnel, it was the clerk’s own decision.
“She said, ‘I can’t serve you.’”And honestly, I was at that point in shock,” he told the station. “I asked, ‘Are you serious?’”She looked at me like she was offended,” Brown added.”
If it was store policy not to do business with the military, that was when she should have said something. But apparently, she didn’t and the customer asked for the manager. Noe the interesting thing will be to see if there is a twitter campaign calling for her job.

Sorry to hear that, Spyder. My brother and I got caught in the Class Action settlement issue because our parents had passed away before the settlement was finalized and no matter how many times I sent the &*(&*((*&&%^& paperwork in, they would only issue the checks in my parents’ name. Finally, we went back to the bank , which happened to be TD, with all the necessary documentation and they were able to re-active the estate account. The bank manager was helpful and more than competent. When the checks finally cleared, he personally closed out the account and handed me the envelopes with the cash. Since then, I have made a point of doing business with them at that particular branch whenever possible.

There are monuments to these precious souls all over the country. The Knights of Columbus, a Catholic Fraternal Organization, has various chapters that have placed them at various locations. The one I saw was at a Roman Catholic cemetery.
Maybe he’ll only be able to vote two times due to his injuries.

You have won the feline stamp of approval. Our two cats totally approve of this message.

Just wait until they get the bill for the damage to the room!
(Seriously, I’m pleased that they were able to take out the perp and that de Caro will recover. May they live long and prosper!)

It’s gone. They took it down in 1993.

Not only that, but they are pushing gun manufacturers out of the State, so people who have had jobs are no longer employed or have left the state with the companies.

Okay, so they compared one of the smaller, more rural towns with the State’s largest city and figured out that Bridgeport is not “safe”. Is this a “no-brainer” or what? How about comparing apples to apples, instead, like oh, say, Newtown (which is nearby and I’m sure you have all heard of) with Ridgefield?

There’s nothing like full disclosure, I always say. And regarding truth in advertising, the advertisers might be really smart to put their dollars elsewhere.

People need to keep their hands to themselves, gay, straight or otherwise. If someone gropes another person, then they might just get a punch in return.

Hopefully, she’s safe in the arms of Jesus and out of harm’s way forever.

If Connecticut keeps going on its current course, they won’t have to worry about seizing the land. Those of us who can, will have gotten out. When a random poll finds that 49% of the respondents would leave the state if they could, the State should not ask for whom the bell tolls, because they will find out the answer soon enough.

Isn’t that Beelzebub shouting, “Snow cones! Get your snow cones right here!”
