Pro-Gun Group Backs Down After Chipotle Rally Backfires

Pro-Gun Group Backs Down After Chipotle Rally Backfires

“I no longer live in a gun crazy state, but I used to, and whenever I saw someone packing a weapon I would quietly tell the restaurant that I didn't feel comfortable eating there while someone was armed next to me. Many times, they would ask me to stay and tell the other person to please put their weapon in their car. Most of them were very accomodating... and some of them had a horrible temper, which as far as I was concerned completely validated my complaint, because someone with a hot temper shouldn't be armed.”

“and that sucks for the restaurant employees. In this case, I really feel for these lower level employees who get enough shit from customers and get paid shit to deal with it. I mean if I were a wait staff at a restaurant and I had to tell someone to put the gun away, I think I would just walk out. Not worth it.”

“What's absolutely amazing is that he let her talk. I've seen tons of shows where guys get to monologue, but any time a girl is talking, it's peppered with a guy talking over her. Heck, just watching the video I had this urge to chime in and talk her down, but he only stepped on her words once and all it did was open him up to more embarrassment.”

“My tactic is I don't. If someone's phone is more important to them than me, I ask them to put away their phones, and if they can't do it, I stop hanging out with them. Before phones, I did the same thing to people who were always watching TV instead of listening or interrupting people to talk about themselves. They've always been there.”

“I don't see the modern pictures as any worse than the originals. In pictures where the people in the past are cheerful, the people in the present are cheerful. Where they're disconnected and detached in the present, they're disconnected and detached in the past. The only exception is the "women shares a meal" in which the past picture is CLEARLY staged and the present is just regular life.”

“I remember when the iPod first came out and people started complaining about how it was going to tear people apart because it allowed us to shut out the world, and I thought, is this what they said about the Walkman?

“You're revealing more and more of what you don't know. No, you have a right to expression and a right to your own opinions. You do not have a right to your own facts. He didn't state anything about the First Amendment—that's a fact, not up to debate. He wasn't making any attempt to abridge their right—that's not even a fact, that's just basic English grammar... the first statement was "I don't want" and the second statement was a stated opinion about religious rallies.

Again, none of this—NONE of this—has anything to do with rights. NOTHING. This is not a "rights" issue.”

That's not even to mention the fact that everyone looked flat and two-dimensional! I tried to touch one of them to see if he felt two-dimensional, and it was like touching a computer monitor!

I dunno, the whole thing has a vibe I just can't understand.”

“I always end up subscribing to Netflix for a couple months, but because there's so little new content I cancel. Then I subscribe the next year after a few options have built up.

I have no problems with them raising their price—it's their service, they should charge whatever it costs, they're not a charity—but the increase in price will probalby deter me from subscribing again. Not because I can't afford a couple bucks but because their price is barely competitive as is.”

The money that the government takes in on interest is used to forgive the debts of graduates who take low-paying public jobs. How would the so-called "Debt Free" lobbyists like the government taking away their debt forgiveness program?”
