AWESOME: Doughnut Owner’s Son Tweets About His “Sad” Dad Reminds Us of the Value of Supporting Small Business

Capitalism and liberty are beautiful things!

These days, privileged hipster socialists love to rant against the “evils” of capitalism, but here’s one great story about the power of social media and the value of supporting small businesses that reminds us of the irreplaceable value of private business, hard work, and the power of the dollar.

Here’s the thing: it far more moral when individuals are given the opportunity to earn their own way, build their own business, and contribute to their community while also accumulating wealth for themselves.

This is the American dream than millions upon millions of people all over the world have come here to pursue and have the greatest nation in the history of the world to show for it.

Trending: Chuck Schumer Says Dems Will Sue If Trump Issues EO to Give Americans COVID-19 ‘Relief’

Yahoo News reports:

A boy in Texas is thanking his Twitter followers for boosting business at his family’s doughnut shop after posting about his “sad dad” and gaining hundreds of thousands of supporters in return.

It all started on Saturday when a Twitter user, who goes by Billy, took to his social media to post a photo of his dad inside of his new Missouri City, Texas, shop to share that nobody had shown up to buy some sweet treats. But less than a day and more than 270,000 retweets later, the store’s fresh inventory was sold out.

That’s right: I’m using a story about a viral tweet that caused a doughnut shop owner to sell out to defend American exceptionalism.

Because a story like this is exactly what makes our nation great. Here is a family who has opened a business, and because of the kind-hearted sympathy of hundreds of thousands of Twitter users who voluntarily took the time to share the post and promote the business, the shop earned a lot more money and dozens of happy customers walked away with fresh doughnuts.

No one forced anyone to support this man’s business. No one’s rights were trampled on. No one was guilted. No one was demonized. No one lost anything.

Decent people who love and support hard-working, small business owners used the oldest, most reliable marketing method in the book to help this man get some business and it worked beautifully, and everybody walked away happy.

Capitalism and liberty are beautiful things!

Save conservative media!

Man Arrested for Rape Is Let Out of Jail Over COVID-19, Then Murders the Woman He Raped

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

Rashida Tlaib Forced to Repay Campaign Nearly $11,000 for Illegal Disbursements to Herself

Busted.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegal distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good! From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
