Law and Order, My Pattotie!

August 31, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Okay, so some guys in Dallas who look like they would not know Gouda from Gruyère up and decide to picket Whole Foods because Whole Foods has signs asking you not to come into the store with open carry weapons.

Thankfully, a great American got pictures of it all because it was pretty damn funny.

First off the guys show up with lawn chairs because – and I’m judging only by appearance here – they probably don’t intend on doing much walking or shopping in the Fit Foods section.

Now the guy in the middle is carrying a “Remember Luby’s” sign.  As you might recall, a man in Killeen, Texas, killed 43 people inside a Luby’s cafeteria.  Responding police could not stop him even though they exchanged fire.  The reason you might not remember this is that it happened in 1991.  That was 23 years ago.  I have no idea how many people have been accidentally killed with guns in the past 23 years but it’s probably – and I’m just guessing here because I ran out of fingers and toes to count on by 1992 – a whole bunch.

The guy walking beside him is a real law and order type, right?  Wrong.

Let’s mosey on over to the Texas Penal Code.

Sec. 42.11. DESTRUCTION OF FLAG. (a) A person commits an offense if the person intentionally or knowingly damages, defaces, mutilates, or burns the flag of the United States or the State of Texas.

Dude, you not only defaced the Texas flag, you’re dragging it on the ground, Moses Rose.

Note the Ron Paul giantass lettering on his back windows. Really?  You’re still dating with that crazy old man?  Oh Honey, just go home and get drunk on the couch in your underwear.

So, they have this giant gun protest in Dallas, Texas.  Five guys show up and it last 30 minutes before they got distracted by a beer sign.

Thanks to the great people at Liberaland for the pictures and the fun.

    I wonder if being outside without A/C was the stimulus for their quick departure.

  3. I can’t decide whether such behavior is pathetic or pathological.

  4. Is the flag attached to the guy’s rifle? Man, I’ve heard of overcompensating for a wee winkie, but that takes the cake.

    I would bet that that section of the Texas Penal code would get tossed at the appellate level as an infringement of the 1st Amendment. Especially given the results of Texas v. Johnson, more info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_v._Johnson

    The pictures at Liberaland are priceless. I love the one where it looks like they’re standing on an off ramp on the freeway. And the guy in the Army tee-shirt with the wrist support on? I bet he bought that shirt & hat at a gun show. He does not look like Army material. Past or present.

    They lasted 30 minutes, eh? I guess Whole Foods didn’t offer them some cheese with their whine. I’ve had sandwiches that took longer than 30 minutes to eat.

    These guys need a hobby. How about a home brewery? Then they’ll never have to leave the house again.

  7. Really…who goes to Food Hole anymore. CEO and founder John Mackey is as bad as WalMart. Just. Don’t. Go.

    This is something new? Some 20 years ago my wife and I were in San Antonio and saw a CVS on the Riverwalk that had a “no guns” sign at the entrance. Maybe these guys could paddle their kayaks out front and mount a protest. But then again, these lardasses would probably capsize their watercraft. Is it unlawful to drench a Texas flag?

    IronCelt, I’ll vote with pathetic, although pathological is certainly an option.

    Mr. Moderate, was your humorectomy performed at The Hair Club for Men?

  11. “I no longer feel safe at Whole Foods”, ’cause I cain’t bring my rifle in with me. Something tells me this crowd is not their demographic.

  12. It is rather hot in Big D in August. Idiot ammosexuals…they are not even good at being IMBECILES.

  13. The thought of sitting in the hot afternoon Dallas sun at the end of August makes me laugh. Guess they are not from Big D. Generally temps around 102-106! Enjoy.

    Sheesh.

    Dear Miss Juanita,

    I’m sure that the NRA will soon be issuing a press release describing the event as 10,000 strong and bubban’em will complain that the liberal media didn’t have it as the lead story on the 6:00 news.

  15. Imagine if Sam Houston’s battle cry at the Battle of San Jacinto had been “Remember Luby’s!”

  16. No Twinkies at Whole Foods,

    But plenty of wee little winkies!

  17. There’s something missing in those photos – – oh I know! A couple of 99 can packs of Peacemaker Beer! But then if you forget the beer you’d probably forget the ice too, and have to go into Whole Foods to get some.

    And as someone mentioned a few days ago, as long as you’re in there, “leave the gun, take the (organic) cannoli” too.

    maryelle, two of my friends, Division of Forestry student guys were vacationing in San Diego this weekend with four friends. They were in civilian/beach clothes, when they were assaulted by some 30+ thugs. Beaten unconscious. Their four friends received minor injuries. One friend has been released from the hospital, his bother has been moved from intensive care to ‘routine’ care, after plastic surgery. WTF?

    I know these guys. Had any of the perps attempted a discussion or even an argument with them, it could have all been good.

    Just sick and mind blowing that the NRA supports and the Tea Bags promote this violence.

    We are one, we’re all frustrated with government incompetence, but when the Koch suckers are this successful in creating violent divisions, perhaps it is time not only to vote, but charge the Koch roaches with insurrection.

    The buns at Whole Foods are longer than their hot dogs.

    PKM – link please?

  21. If they no longer feel safe at Whole Foods, let them stay away. There! Don’t they feel better already? And they didn’t have to spend the gas and the time to get there and march around with their guns and chairs and stuff. They must have missed the critical thinking classes at school.

    By the way, which Whole Foods was this, anyway? The Liberaland item says it was “in at a Texas-area Whole Foods store.” You and I know that “Texas-area” covers a whole heckuva lot of area. Was it in the Dallas-Fort Worth area?

  22. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Glidwrith, family and friends have been scrambling for information. Why the ‘media’ are not following this story, I don’t know.

    We checked the San Diego media for information. Nada

    But for a fact my two friends were attacked, hospitalized, and the perpetrators were arrested, from information provided by family and friends.

    Glidwrith , for whatever reasons the media is not on this story.

    Link? As soon as it is reported, I’ll provide a link. Between communications with my friends’ family, there are no reports that I have been able to find.

    Wish I had more information regarding my friends. I so seriously trust Juanita Jean, if I learn anything further, I count on her to report the facts, or find them faster than I can.

    But, it is a fact, two of my friends had the crap beaten out of them. Kicked in the head into unconsciousness. That is a fact; draw your own conclusions that the media is absent.

    I’m with Hilary at #7. I no longer go to Whole Paycheck ever since I found out about John Mackey. I used to go because I liked some of the things they had at their hot deli, but I’ll do without so as not to put any of my money into their CEO’s pocket. When a company has a 49% increase in company stock in 2012 and whines about having to provide insurance for their employees, I don’t have much use for them. And then calls the ACA fascism. But what do you expect from someone who is a Looneytarian?

  24. Ann-Marie (Cookie Kinns) Meyers says:

    I have been upset with Whole Foods ever since I found out their employees are on the “You are going to screw up and get fired, and here is how you are going to do it,” terms of employment program. My other name for it is the Reverse Step Program. It is the exact opposite of what they use in rehab hospitals, where the patients start out at zero and earn their way to privileges. This is where a new hire is told, “You have six points. Every time you have an infraction, you lose a point. When you have no more points, you are fired.” They lose points for being late, missing work without 24 hours notice (who knows a day ahead of time they are going to get stomach flu?), violating a store policy, etc. I would not want to work for a company that starts out with such a negative attitude toward me.

  25. Marcia in CO says:

    @Ann-Marie … it’s a wonder WF’s have any employees at all with that horrible set-up … but folks are desperate for work!

    Jesus … how inhumane some so-called humans have become … just so much worse then usual!!
