The Doughnut Nazi

The owner of Schuler's Bakery in The Champion City, Springfield, OH has decided to put his paranoia on the front page.
He has decided to put signs up in his store windows saying
Notice: This store is politically incorrect, We say Merry Christmas, God Bless America, We Salute our Flag and give thanks to our Troops, Police Officers and Fire Fighters. If this offends you, you are welcome to leave. In God We Trust, Schuler’s Bakery, Trent A. Schuler, CEO/Owner.
This goes beyond "Black Owned". Dunno if he thinks this will keep radicalized Islamic terrorists out but he has obviously been severely persecuted and feels he has to lash out at his oppressors.
Schuler's Bakery is an institution in Springfield, being family owned for multiple generations. The city has lost population & wealth and various stores have left town over the years. Macy's, Penney's, Target B Dalton, Walden Books have all left and the Upper Valley Mall was just sold at auction for $2.65M.
Over the years, Schuler's has had to streamline their product line but now they are fed up & have decided that if you don't like saying "Merry Christmas" well, then, fuck you, asshole, we don't need your fuckin' business.
My dad was a business owner, was active civically, politically & religiously but he kept his business neutral - said it was more professional. He was also fairly secure in his beliefs & felt no need to crow about it.
The thing is, people demanding "Merry Christmas" over "Happy Holidays" are not being politically incorrect, they are just fanatics who want to impose their own political correctness on everybody else. Kinda like ISIS?
Well, here's hoping Mr Schuler doesn't start beheading infidels in his shop on Sunday mornings (the day of rest).

Hamilton County GOP Scrambles to find a Replacement for Greg Hartmann

HamCo County commissioner Greg Hartmann has decided not to run for re-election.
Who should replace him?
I think the local GOP should think out of the box on this one.
Perhaps a doll that says random phrases when you pull the string on the doll's back. The RNC could come up with some of their stock catch phrases & answers. If it works, they can use the dolls for all sorts of elected offices.
The problem with this is that the dolls wouldn't be so good at fund raising. So maybe sexbots would be a better way to go. They can ~ahem~ provide favors for ~ahem~ donations.
Then, of course they could go supernatural. Perhaps Charlie Winburn could channel a dead goat. Charlie might not care for playing second fiddle to a rotting carcass, but with some cash, I think he'd be fine.
Another option would be shape shifting insectoid reptillian space aliens. So far this has been spectacular for Cincinnati with it's first shape shifting insectoid reptillian space alien mayor.
All in all, this could provide the GOP with a real shot in the arm and be a pivotal point in their race to the bottom.

Cutting the Cable

As folks move away from the one size fits all cable TV model, the networks are delivering their content through their websites. That's great. They have different ways of doing it. Some make you wait a week to view online. Some let you view immediately but take down older shows. Some sites work OK with one browser but not with another. Fine, it's weird but I get it - we're still figuring it out. There's still advertising but, that's ok, the sponsors are the ones paying the bills.
While most networks stream their content ok - Fox is about the worst, some of the advertisers are streaming from Mac IIs through a modem.
Witness the snippet of an ad that takes about 5 minutes to play - if it doesn't crash your browser of completely lose the connection. Watching a 1 hour show (that's less than an hour) can take up to an hour & forty five minutes with an ad like this playing at every commercial break. Ironically, it's the tech companies that are the worst. The candy companies ads are fine.
Fox gives you the option of watching one ad or just watch with regular ads throughout the show. Except that doesn't work - you still get the ads...
The ads on Fox & The CW (you can tell what we watch in the BiC breakroom) are the worst.
Thing is, this ruins the user experience and I'm guessing most people don't realize it's different companies streaming ads & shows. Unless they are doing this on purpose for the cable companies, they really need to set some standards on their advertisers.
