Politics And Indigestion

So the Red Hen restaurant kicked Sarah Huckabee Sanders out to make a political point. They're standing with the Resistance or something like that. Commentary seems to be running 50-50 on the topic and it's not clear if they will see a drop in business as they may well become a darling of the progressives.

Even if I were politically aligned with them, why would I ever want to go there? I don't want political discussions are dinner in my own house, much less in a restaurant. I certainly don't want to be around a bunch of people who are making political statements with their every action.

This is a natural consequence of an ever-growing State. Governments are run through politics and politics is arguing. The bigger and more intrusive the government, the more we are going to argue with each other. Now we're yelling about which restaurant is serving which side. You can't watch the NFL without political commentary. You can't watch an entertainment awards show without it. Now we're bringing that same love and joy to eating out?

Great. Just great.
