Arrested Dallas Hairdresser’s GoFundMe
Launched Before She Even Reopened

Original Article

Posted By: StormCnter, 5/9/2020 9:27:05 AM

On Friday, Ted Cruz flew to Dallas for a haircut. He hadn’t been looking particularly shaggy, but as hair salons have become the latest front in the culture war, Cruz—never one to miss an opportunity to declare which side he’s on—invited photographers to join him before he donned a face mask and a leopard-print smock for his visit to Salon à la Mode. The Dallas salon has become pivotal in the stay-at-home-order debates after its owner, Shelley Luther, was arrested on Tuesday and sentenced to seven days in jail on a contempt of court charge. That stemmed from her refusal to apologize and close down her store until the second phase


Apparently, there is a little more to the story than we had heard.

Spin spin spin. Dan Solomon ought to be quite dizzy by now for twisting this story to make Ms. Luther and her supporters look like they have done something deliberately back-handed.

A snarky, sour grapes article. It implies that PPP money will cover all you need. It doesn’t. It is based on your previous years of net income, which, if you are a small business owner is already fairly low, after expenses. I applied and received one, as well. It is peanuts, and covers just the essentials, leaving no money to live on. It’s nothing like those collecting unemployment which pays them more money than if they were working. And, as far as the patriot group connection, so what? They came to her, and took up her cause. Thankfully, somebody did, but the article makes it sound like the PR fix was in...just like it is when some Soros organization gets involved in liberal causes.

So let me get this straight. Solomon is angry because people chose Shelley Luther as a symbol for their own pent-up anger and then willingly donated to a fund raised on her behalf. And then (gasp!) she had the audacity to accept the money! Why doesn’t Solomon try spotlighting the many other businesses that are still in dire financial straits instead of whining about the money collected on Ms. Luther’s behalf?

Come on, OP - you’re a Texan too. Texas Monthly writes really nice interesting articles, but it’s still a liberal magazine. The author wrote either before the latest news came out, or in spite of it. Shelley Luther said yesterday she’s sharing the windfall — she’s covering all fees and court costs for the two young ladies in Laredo who were “caught” (it was a sting) coloring eyelashes. She’s also giving monies to salons in south Dallas. I suspect several things: no one knew the Go Fund Me page would reach those proportions (but it’s certainly indicative of many positive things about Americans), and she probably just said “yeah, sure” when approached simply being grateful for the support. Don’t forget there was a real possibility all along of her being jailed, in a jail that was infected with the virus. Don’t be moved by cynical, liberal Texas Monthly and their finding of anything patriotic as being suspect. Drink another cup of coffee and take a deep breath.

Did the go fund me start before she originally reopened, got arrested and went to jail? Or did it start after the publicity of her getting arrested and being sent to jail? Does the article make that clear? I quit reading when the guy said he was comfortable with guns but was afraid that the virus was out there… it’s not safe! Don’t you know, we are all going to die! The THING is coming for us!

#4, I offer a respectful correction. The PPP loans are based on two and a half months of payroll and payroll records must be submitted with the application. They don't have anything to do with net profits (or losses). But, I'm glad Ms. Luther was able to land one of those. It should help with her business for a while.

#12, regarding the PPP program; for self-employed, sole proprietors and independent contractors the 2019 schedule C for their business is required, which shows the net at the bottom of the first page. And that determines the amount divided by 12 and multiplied by 2.5, with there being a cap at $100K.

The owner of the music store next door? Mad that customers can't enter his store because of the armed protesters outside of the salon? Bull-o-ney. More like envious of his neighbor: she's getting national attention ('free' advertising), she gets to open for business (are music stores even open yet to have customers be blocked from entering?). The stand-up-for-freedom types cheer her for courage (the girls stood up to the lockdown, while their wimpy neighbor didn't). And if she's become the Right's symbol and magnet for support, he has a chance to become the Left's symbol, and have some of their support dollars rain down on him. Sounds to me more like a mixture of small-business jealousy and Leftist Snowflake Syndrome. My smirk, though, is for the handful of politicians scurrying around to grab a share of the spotlight.

Relying on memory, I thought the Go-Fund-Me was started when she was sent to jail. In addition to losing her freedom and her income, she was also sentenced to paying a $7000 fine. Others have since stepped up offering to pay that (including Hannity)...

So they approached her one day before she opened her store because they wanted to support her decision. Okay. She was planning on opening it anyway for all of the reasons she said. This was weeks before her loan was approved. Dan Solomon seems to be making a mountain out of a mole hill. Wonder why?

Texas Monthly ran an article a couple months ago about the little town of Marfa, a little artsy town in deep West Texas. An issue or two later, they ran nearly a page of corrections and retractions. Outside of BBQ reviews and the Texanist (think Miss Manners on all things Texan), it's a far leftist Austin rag.

#12, and I offer a respectful reply. You are correct in how the PPP works for businesses with employees on a payroll. It was expanded sometime in early to mid-April to include sole proprietors, independent contractors and independent business owners, who are their own, single employee. The verification of income, in those cases, comes from your previous years’ tax filings. I know; I went through the process and received a small loan.

Texas Monthly is only very emotely acquainted with truth, so I won't waste time reading the story. When I first heard of the gofundme page she was still in jail because of the piece of garbage "judge". I am glad she is out and especially happy to see support from Texas leaders. I suspect there will be a good cause to use this money for helping others that need it.

"Texas Monthly" used to be a really good magazine about all-thing Texas. Upbeat, positive, interesting -- every month!!! But about 15 years ago, it was taken over by far-left extremists, and it because nothing more than a rag sheet attacking all things Republican and conservative. Any chance they get to bash a Republican, a church, or anything conservative, they will with full fury -- and usually lots of exaggerations and bald-faced lies!!!

From seeing this lady on TV, I’m willing to bet she will help many other people with this money. I’m glad so many people came to her defense. I also wonder what kind of article Mr. Solomon would write about the full of himself Judge.

Sea level—perpetual flux. There is a micromillimetre on the surface of the ocean that moves between sea and sky and is simultaneously both and neither. Every known life-form exists in relation to this layer. Above it, the world of land, air, sunlight, and lungs. Below it, the world of water, depth, and pressure. The deeper you go, the darker, the more hostile, the less familiar, the less measured, the less known. A splash in the South Pacific, last June, marked a historic breach of that world. A crane lowered a small white submersible off the back of a ship and plonked it in the water.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s suggestion that Washington should allow financially stressed states to declare bankruptcy during the coronavirus crisis has provoked the ire of several Democratic governors, especially New York’s Andrew Cuomo, who has been pressing McConnell instead for aid to states and cities. Though McConnell’s proposal seemed aimed at strapped Illinois, whose legislators have asked for federal help in bailing out their pension funds, Cuomo appeared to take the suggestion personally and fired back at the Kentucky senator. Cuomo claims that New York is a net donor to the federal government—sending more money to Washington in federal taxes than the state gets back in federal spending—

For centuries western culture has been permeated by the idea that humans are selfish creatures. That cynical image of humanity has been proclaimed in films and novels, history books and scientific research. But in the last 20 years, something extraordinary has happened. Scientists from all over the world have switched to a more hopeful view of mankind. This development is still so young that researchers in different fields often don’t even know about each other. When I started writing a book about this more hopeful view, I knew there was one story I would have to address. It takes place on a deserted island somewhere in the Pacific.

He was 87. The musician’s son, Danny Jones Penniman, confirmed the pioneer’s death to Rolling Stone, but said the cause of death was unknown. Starting with “Tutti Frutti” in 1956, Little Richard cut a series of unstoppable hits – “Long Tall Sally” and “Rip It Up” that same year, “Lucille” in 1957, and “Good Golly Miss Molly” in 1958 – driven by his simple, pumping piano, gospel-influenced vocal exclamations and sexually charged (often gibberish) lyrics.

If you’re a healthcare worker who went to New York to volunteer to help fight the coronavirus outbreak there, Gov. Andrew Cuomo says you owe New York state income taxes. Even if you were not working for any pay in New York, but you were still being paid in your home state. Pay that enabled you to volunteer and put your own health in danger to help New York. That’s classic taxation without representation. Americans have a history of not liking this. Health care workers that came to New York to help fight the coronavirus pandemic at its epicenter will have to pay state taxes, according to the governor.

Beyond exposing the depth of this despicable personal and political hit job on a 30-year military veteran, the newly discovered documents hold great legal significance. Here’s your legal primer. The Russiagate special counsel’s office charged Flynn with violating 18 U. S.
