I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

"Speak English" Sign is Discriminatory

Why is representing the interests of the citizens of this nation such a difficult concept for elected officials? Take for example the travails of Joey Vento, owner of Geno's philly cheesesteaak stand in Philadelphia, PA.

The Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations notified Geno's owner Joey Vento this week that it had found probable cause that his sign urging patrons to order in English is discriminatory. The next step is to schedule a hearing to settle the dispute or to escalate the charges against the owner of the South Philadelphia sandwich stand.

In spite of the sign Mr, Vento never denied service to anyone, but that is not important to the
Human Relations Nazis. Their function in life seems to be to be permanently offended. It is a shame that the time honored tradition of tar and feathering has passed into disuse.

Moonbattery has been chronicling this situation since June. See:
