No Twigs, No Seeds, Nothing You Don't Need...

...Panera Bread is some bad assed eats, and that is a very good thing. Yes folks, I don't expect Panera Bread ever had twigs or seeds (at least no marijuana seeds) in their food (but had some healthy edible seeds) but the big news is that they recently banned all the stuff you don't need. They have banned over 100 additives that are often found in the food we buy at sandwich shops, other restaurants and supermarkets. They did that without and I repeat - WITHOUT - any government intervention from bureaucracies like the FDA. Why they did it was to give their customers what they want (source) and I would guess to continue to make a profit.

Can you imagine that, a big business (and yes Panera Bread is BIG business, reportedly with over 8 million customers per week and revenues over 2 billion dollars) with absolutely no government intervention all because it is what their customers want and because the owners of Panera Bread like to make a profit while and by satisfying their customers! It's called the free market folks (as opposed to Bernie Sanders wanting to give stuff away for free at taxpayers' expense). Long live capitalism.

A hat tip to peter Q for the info on this.

Off To Do Some Chores Soon And Get In A Little Shopping

First to the town offices to renew a dog license. Then maybe to Home Depot to get some paint with which to paint the basement floor. It's about time that I at least have everything I need to get the job done, then who knows, maybe I will start the job soon (maybe even this weekend).

After that, I think I will be headed to some local gun stores to check on the availability and prices of the new Ruger Mark IV pistol in both the blued steel and stainless versions of the target model with the 5.5" barrel. I have had some cash burning a hole in my pocket since last weekend when I sold two pistols.

All the best,

One Down - Many More To Go

The first "sanctuary city" to drop its sanctuary status for illegal aliens is Miami as the mayor there has ordered city officials to comply with President Trumps executive order to prevent the city from losing federal funding. Of course, many other mayors, such as the douchebag in NYC, will fight Trump at all costs. As Mayor Bill de Blasio of NYC reportedly put it: "'We will not deport law-abiding New Yorkers', " (source).

The de Blasio quote has me wondering - since when did the states or the cities deport anyone and since when are ILLEGAL aliens law abiding? I guess though that comes as no surprises since leftists truly seem to live out their lives in Bizarro World apart from the rest of us here in the real world.

All the best,
