The BBQ joint where NO ONE cuts the line...
except Obama: Controversy as President
becomes the first person ever to jump
ahead at restaurant where customers can

Barack Obama may have lost a few approval rating points with this move. The president was seen cutting the line at Austin´s Franklin Barbecue Thursday afternoon, while in town to raise money for the Democratic Party. Lives at the eatery are infamously long, and have been known to stretch as long as three hours wait.But Mr Obama did no waiting today, as he showed up at the restaurant, shook a few hands and made his way straight to the register to order more than $300 worth of meat. ´I know this is a long line. I feel real bad, but – I’m gonna

When Bush 41 was running for Prez, he stopped in Dayton for a campaign rally. Mr. Bush decided to visit the Pine Club, a local steak house with a reputation for two things: You wait for a table (no reservations), and they don´t take credit cards.

Mr. Bush cheated a bit, having the SS guys wait instead of hanging out at the bar, but he didn´t line jump.

There is no food worth a 3 hour wait ! Advance planning could have been done and the food ordered to pick up. This was just a photo op.
The best BBQ is found in Memphis, TN anyway.(ducking head now).

Austin is the San Francisco of Texas. I don´t know why Austin hasn´t moved to California, Oregon, Colorado or Washington state to just get it over with. Austin has nothing to do with Texas.

#8 calling names is not the same as discussing reasonableness. WE the PEOPLE in the USA have general understanding that presidents have certain prerogatives due to the need for security, and others due to needs of the office. Thus, we accept (begrudgingly), closed highways for presidential transport. But when a pres steps over the line, as did Clinton for his LAX-stopping haircut, many of us think the line between presidential prerogative and unseemly behavior is crossed. Jumping to the head of the food line may simply be bad manners, or it may be indicative of a deeper, and more virulent, personality disorder.

There was printed in a report an evaluation of people who served around the past presidents (close and surrounding) that stated the most civility.

An example, Bush didn´t land in Louisiana after the hurricane because extra security would have been extended to the airport when it was really needed in the flooded areas. He received flack for not being in the middle of the mess instantly.

The earliest Bush family extended courtesy to the Secret Service on many occasions.

The Reagans were noted for consideration for those around them.

Then there are those that have cursed the secret service, The Clintons, and the Obamas.

So, civility, courtesy, doesn´t end because one is elected as the highest representative of the people of the US. To assume so is clear evidence of pomposity. So there!

I was listening to KLBJ Radio from Austin this morning. Not only did our Dear Leader(US) cut in line, he had to mooch money from one of his aides to pay for the grub.

Now, I know most guys like Obama don´t carry cash, etc., but you´d a thunk that some aid would have discreetly passed the boss a couple of sawbucks ahead of time to pay the tab.

By the way, Austin traffic, which on a good day is a mess, was even worse during Dear Leader(US)´s visit. About a mile of IH-35 exits in downtown were closed, overpasses closed and commuters were told to expect problems until about 3 pm (which I´m sure coincided with Dear Leader(US)´s exit from Austin.

Most of us in Texas favor a border fence ... or at least a cattle guard around Austin to keep the liberals penned up and away from the rest of us.

Washington Free Beacon, by Abraham Rabinovich    Original Article

JERUSALEM—A Hamas force wearing Israeli army uniforms emerged from a tunnel inside Israel this morning and inflicted losses on Israeli troops before being wiped out. The Hamas squad numbered at least 10 fighters, Israeli sources said. Nine were killed but an Israeli officer said at least two may have escaped through the tunnel. In initial accounts, which gave conflicting narratives, the Hamas force was said to have emerged from a hidden tunnel on the Israeli side of the border only 200 yards from a kibbutz, and split into two groups. Israeli soldiers whom one group encountered shortly afterwards reportedly took them to

Diversity for Thee, but Not for Me

The Progressive mantra of “diversity is our strength” is one of the most honored catchphrases of the left. Like all slogans, it is a test to see if common folk are “gun-toting, Bible-clinging” Neanderthals or are they part of the enlightened, educated elites to whom the rest of us must surrender our individual beliefs, opinions, and thoughts. But as with all that the Progressives say, the meaning of the words being used is warped and misrepresented. For example, think about what Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz is saying in the following: Diversity on the bench is critical. As practitioners, you need judges who ´get it!´

I’m the editor here at AT who handled M Catherine Evans’ “Americans Protest Illegals as High-Profile Conservatives Pander,” the piece that opened the second – or maybe third – front in the conservative civil war this Monday. That submission came in relatively late on Sunday. Monday’s article schedule was already set. But I put it up anyway, shifting another piece to do it. I made sure it went in for Monday even though, for technical reasons, I had to reenter it twice into the publishing system. I made sure it went in because of what it says about the nature of conservatism

Want to get a new angle on Obama´s Hope and Change mantra? Longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer wrote the book about it before Obama was even born: The Ordeal of Change. [E]very radical adjustment is a crisis in self-esteem... It needs inordinate self-confidence to face drastic change without inner trembling. “Action,” wrote Hoffer, “is the most obvious way by which to gain confidence and prove our worth... [but] there must be an abundance of opportunities, and there must be a tradition of self-reliance” for a program of action to work. And back in the 19th century when the first great wave of immigration

"I´m in D.C., so I´m for it," Obama said Monday at a town-hall event to promote his "My Brother´s Keeper" program. "I´ve long believed that folks in D.C. pay taxes like everybody else. They contribute to the overall well-being of the country like everybody else. They should be represented like everybody else," Obama added.

The group will send yarn bricks to the Supreme Court, Congress, or White House staffers.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and
