Had a Facebook friend from Nashville who posted his research: TRY THIS IN YOUR AREA and SEE WHAT YOU FIND!!
Starbucks’ new #RaceTogther initiative got me looking at some data. Basically, I compared Starbucks’ store locations by zip code to the most heavily African-American zip codes in the Nashville area and, it turns out, Starbucks has no stores in those heavily minority zip codes. Let’s talk about that, Starbucks. Let’s talk about why you have three Starbucks at the edge of the Vanderbilt campus – and one Starbucks actually ON campus in the Student Life Center – but ZERO stores on campus or near the campus of majority-black Tennessee State University. Let’s talk about that, Starbucks.
Update: Some data:
Vanderbilt enrollment data shows the student population is about 10 percent African-American. Campus: 330 acres. FOUR Starbucks on or at the edge of campus.
TSU: 80 percent African-American. Campus: 500 acres. ZERO Starbucks on or near campus.
Nashville’s 37208 zipcode – North Nashville – is 86.2% African-American. It has ZERO Starbucks stores.
Nashville’s 37218 zip code is 74% African-American. It has ZERO Starbucks stores.
Nashville’s 37207 zipcode is 71.4% African-American. It has ZERO Starbucks stores.
Majority-white Lipsomb University and majority-white Belmont University both have a Starbucks Cafe on campus, according to their websites. Majority-black Fisk University does not.
Bingo! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that stores serving $4 cups of coffee don't do well in poorer "ethnic" neighborhoods. That's why they tend not to build there, I guess. Well, that or racism.

Saw a video about EndTimes from a speech given to the Prophecy Club by Ken Peters in 2005 telling about dreams he had had in the early 1980′s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rtw6XMllpcA In which he was talking about the government being able to HEAR and SEE exactly what was going on in homes thru the television sets. Thirty five years ago, that wasn’t really on the radar screen… a long speech but very insightful as to what is coming…

And THAT is why Clinton “exposing” himself to blackmail was the REAL issue of his “indiscretions”…
No one in the MSM was bringing up the fact that Clinton's affairs subjected him to blackmail; thus, subjecting the USA to blackmail. And even in his impeachment, this suject wasn't brooched. Yet, Clinton's actions threatened the security of the USA by subjecting the president to blackmail.
IMHO, the US should stop providing financial/military aid to Israel.
Agreed but it is also why this parasite Israel must be removed.
Considering who profits from the book. I believe it is fiction written for the sole purpose of separating suckers from their money.

Our Tea Party in Tennessee has had the pleasure of having Dr. Earl Taylor come out twice to give the “Making of America” seminar. It was AWESOME! It was informational and enlightening! He is a walking history book and his depth of knowledge is enviable! I wish I had had a history teacher like Dr. Taylor because he lights a passion for learning that burns long after he leaves….! Thank you Dr. Taylor and staff for ALL you have done to educate young people in the TRUTH!

Lib – I LOVE your icon….just wanted to be honest and tell you I’m stealing it for future use…we have a whole herd of RINOs here in Tennessee and your icon may come in very handy… Thanks!

Plus,….re: Mr. Kahlil Boyd…… wait for it….he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg aligned group, and also went to Harvard’s Kennedy School. Another Board Member, Mark McKinnon is one of “a handful of players behind every big decision, consensus or roadblock in Washington—putting a unique, sometimes hidden stamp on the outcome of today’s debates.” And McKinnon gets kudos from BHO and John McCain and George W. Bush (so he is in with all of the government elites -regardless of faux parties). And he has taught…wait for it…at Harvard’s JFK School of Government. Another Board member, Marcia Morris, also is a graduate of the Kennedy School at Harvard. Is this enough background on some of the major players? PLUS, a FINAL RED FLAG is ANYTHING that has the word “reform” in it because they usually want to “RE-Form” the traditions, culture and infrastructures to THEIR advantage. EVERYONE, DO YOUR OWN HOMEWORK but we are surrounded by people who pretend to be one thing while working an entirely DIFFERENT AGENDA! It is easy for well-intentioned people to be pulled in but it is all a front for goals that are NOT good for the everyday American citizen!

Who else got the “MayDay PAC” commercial? They say “Democracy Needs an Upgrade. Act Now!” http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Zs_3FHh3z4o These people are typical Progressives…. FIRST of all, we are a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, NOT A Friggin’ DEMOCRACY! So ANY group that aligns under a “democracy” banner sets off RED FLAGS because they are either illiterate about our history or intentionally misleading the masses. I’ll save the “difference between the two” for another post. SECOND, if you look at the “About US” for this group, there are many MORE RED FLAGS. https://mayday.us/about/ Remember the Progressives like to have wonderful sounding names to fool people but look at who they are. ….. for THIS group, the Founder, Lawrence Lessig, was a professor at…..wait for it…..University of Chicago, that cesspool of Progressives and BHO’s alma mater…plus taught at Harvard and Yale, worked for big insurance companies and several “philosophical/artsy” groups… the next Board Member they list, Kahlil Boyd, was president of StudentsFirst, a Common Core front group “focused on changing the nation’s legislative and policy landscape for public education.” (i.e. turning it over to federal control). Also, worked to “re-imagine” the presidential primary system and place “bi-partisan” presidential tickets on all 50 state ballots (fits the agenda of wanting to do away with the Electoral College and go for “direct” votes that they can more

I know that Glenn has his new book, Conform, but if you want a “Reader’s Digest” version of Common Core, with explanations AND rebuttals for all the lies, order this book, “The Cult of Common Core: Obama’s Final Solution for Your Child’s Mind and Our Country’s Exceptionalism” by Brad McQueen. You can order it on http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1497456045/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1“. ONLY $5.40 and it is a quick, easy read WELL worth the money. The author, Brad McQueen, was a teacher in Arizona who was sent to “assist” with the group developing it but he quickly recognized what was going on!
Cult of Common Core is an excellent primer on Common Core. Another excellent in depth look at cc available on amazon is "The Story Killers" A Common -Sense Case Against the Common Core by Terrence O. Moore.

As someone who lives in Tennessee, (once again) I apologize….

I know Ben Cunningham and I’ve asked him to clarify speaking to MSNBC. Knowing Ben, my guess is that they were the ones who asked whereas our local paper “The Tennessean” is pretty much bought and paid for by the Progressives… Either way, Ben is a good man, solid patriot, and I know QUITE a few people who normally might have gone to an event like this but did not this time as a protest.. I’m sure that the wealthy running for re-elections more than paid for any “unfilled” seats…

I just read the other article from the link. it say the POS DROVE THE DOG TO BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA TO GET RID OF IT!!!! …. “Sohn says he eventually drove to Los Angeles where Bronson jumped out of his car at a gas station in Beverly Hills.
“Is he still alive? I’m sure he is,” Sohn told 7NEWS reporter Molly Hendrickson”….
Everyone who actually believes that this dog just accidentally on purpose got lost in Beverly Hills from Denver, please raise your hand.
The POS doesn’t say anything about going after the dog, searching for him, etc. We ALL know that he just drove out of state to dump this dog!
If there is anyone in LA who finds a German Shepherd, it may be this poor puppy who did not deserve this POS for an owner! I’m so mad at this human refuse right now, I can’t see straight….
May 30, 2014 at 10:45am
Maybe I missed it but where is the dog now? SURELY, they didn’t give it back to this POS!!!!

And WHY do these idiots ALWAYS come from Tennessee??? Probably attends the mosque in Murfreesboro that was put up illegally because the Rutherford County Commissioners were spineless…

I have also had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Wang speak several times to Liberty groups in Tennessee. When you understand that he was a victim of Mao’s policies and how hard he fought to get into college rather than be consigned to a labor farm, you would appreciate his drive for achievement and excellence. When you hear him describe how he came to America with $50, a Chinese-American dictionary, and one contact here, it will make his accomplishments seem all the more extraordinary. When you know about the inventions and processes he has created, you will recognize that he is a gifted person. And when you hear him play the Chinese “erhu” (similar to our violin), you would also appreciate the talents and soul of an exceptional man –Someone who has the delicate skills to do eye surgery along with the artistic skills to play a fine musical instrument. It should also be said that Dr. Wang has an annual “Eye Ball” fundraiser to help patients needing surgeries that they cannot afford while he also provides pro-bono services for many. He loves this country because he has seen the worst of Communism and Socialism. He has experienced first-hand and KNOWS the promise and hope of America at its finest! He is a special, remarkable man and we are blessed that he choose to make his way to America! Thank you Dr. Wang!

AGAIN, my deepest apologies to the rest of the country for our TWO “Republican” RINO POS Senators, Corker and Alexander, who ONCE AGAIN voted Democrat! AND ONCE AGAIN made Tennessee the ONLY STATE to have BOTH “REPUBLICAN” SENATORS follow Obama’s agenda to the letter! We are doing our best to get rid of these useless, air-breathing “shills” – just keep us in your prayers, and if we can’t take them out thru the voting process, maybe God will help us in another way….
December 12, 2013 at 11:38am
As a Tennessean, we are doing our best to get rid of Lamar…and actually have some good conservative choices instead, including Danny Page (DannyPageForSenate.com) and Joe Carr (CarrForTN.com). ALL of the Republican Establishment here, including the Governor (RINO – Goober Pyle look-alike) Bill Haslam, Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, most State Senators and House Reps, almost all the Fed House Reps (including Diane Black and Thank God EXCLUDING Scott DeJarlais!), his co-hort in crime Corker, and the TN GOP heads have sold their souls to this man’s campaign…he was just trying to head off any competition from them… but they have not counted on the grassroots, and LAMAR WILL LOSE!!!

Per floydhowardjr, “RINO”S you’re going home! The Tea Party Movement “is” the Republican Party. Its members are the majority. We will not be dissuaded, deluded, compromised, delayed, detoured, bought or lured away. We will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, negotiate at the table of corruption, hesitate in the presence of adversary or meander in the maze of mediocrity. We won’t give up, shut up or let up because we’re prayed up and suited up. You won’t have any problem recognizing us! We’re through with your phony, backstabbing, panty waist, cloistered backroom clique politics that have brought our country to ruin and the party to impotence. WE WILL VOTE YOU OUT!!!! WE WILL VOTE YOU OUT!!!! GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!” I’m with “Ashestoashes!” Way to go, floydhowardjr!!!! We ARE the Republican Party. That’s why I’m “Watch Out For The RINO Shills!” (those who pretend to be Republican when running for office, and vote for the Democrats once they get there!)
Is it just me or does anyone else see a pattern here?

Thanks, Jay for your gracious comments. I also sent an apology email to Kenny Nicholson, President of GCI, and received this prompt reply back:
“Thank you for the follow-up email. We are a small company trying to put fires out all over the internet that are too big for us to handle at this moment. This story and how it has effected us has been very overwhelming to say the least, but we are trying to find the positive in it.
Having people understand who we are and what our values are is important to us. Our company has Christian values and morals. We are a very small company located in the Panhandle of Florida with limited resources to fight this big battle but will try to let everyone know we are not in any way associated with this story or Mr. McMahon.
Mr. Nicholson was also very gracious in his handling of these attacks, and on behalf of The Blaze readership, apologize for attacking you, your employees, and your company inappropriately.
Unfortunately, for some mysterious reason, Nebraska Golf Card and Brian McMahon were no where to be found on internet searches, and people jumped to the wrong conclusions with the results (as you described above).
Thank you again for your patience and forgiveness as the TRUTH gets out to the readership. People are just tired of being abused in situations like this and unfortunately, direct their anger in the wrong way. Please have a Happy Thanksgiving! And I hope that good things will come ou
