- Swift Justice For Bad Manners

Have you heard of the guy who berated the Chick-Fil-A girl at the drive up window over the opinions of her boss?

Well it turns out he's gotten himself fired for his trouble.

Good manners and common courtesy are the bedrock of western civilization. I find it immensely gratifying to see this guy get retribution for what in the end amounted to nothing but rudeness.

TUCSON, AZ--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2012) - The following is a statement from Vante:

Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A. Effective immediately, Mr. Smith is no longer an employee of our company.

The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.

We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.

Adam Smith proves the Alinsky method has it's repercussions espescially when aimed at an innocent bystander.

I have made a general observation, that while the left has always had a vicious / obnoxious streak, it has become far more pronounced since The Big Zero took office. The peak being IMO, the OWS movement (which encamped outside of where I work).

In NYC, you always have those 20 somethings with a clip board in hand, collecting signatures for some left-wing cause: Gay marriage, gay rights, amnesty for illegal aliens, banning guns, etc. I have noticed them becoming much more aggressive, if not downright mean to anyone, no matter how politely stated, that disagree with their point of view.

If Obama loses, and loses big (taking the Senate with him), what will the hard left do next? Move up from being rude to actual violence?

Hell. I think it will be downright ugly.. Especially the left against any Tea Party folks. Tea party takes alot of shit for being a pretty well behaved group of folks.

The great part about that guy in Tucson getting fired for being, shall we say, impolite to the Chick-Fil-A woman is that it shows actions can have consequences. Maybe next time the left wing knuckleheads will think twice before pulling, much less publicizing, such rudeness.

The usual corporate weasel word pap, which I am sure he was counting on, is “we do not agree with what X said but defend his right to his First Amendment views and are sorry if he offended anyone”. Good for this company for drawing a line.

BTW, Tom, what do you think of this: (http://moneymorning.com/ob/economist-richard-duncan-civilization-may-not-survive-death-spiral/)?

007,

I think there is a vast difference between the belief that the government of the US won't survive and the people of the US won't survive. If you depend on the government for your living, particularly if you are a retiree and don't actually 'do' anything to earn that living, then I think you may be in real trouble as the current fiscal trajectory reveals how unsustainable it really is.

I think it's a legitimate 'worst case' scenario to wonder about what we will each do if the government collapses, but I believe American civil society will continue either way. It won't be mad max... ever. The government doesn't actually accomplish so much that we can't get by perfectly well without it.

With all that said, that article is a sales pitch, not a serious piece. So... steady on.
