A Starbucks in Oklahoma has issued a public apology on Thanksgiving to a local police officer after one of its employees wrote “Pig” on the cop’s cup.

Kiefer Police Chief Johnny O’Mara shared a photograph of the offensive cup that was handed to one of his officers who bought the beverages on Thanksgiving morning in Glenpool, a town south of Tulsa, for the dispatchers who were on duty.

“What irks me is the absolute and total disrespect for a police officer who, instead of being home with family and enjoying a meal and a football game, is patrolling his little town,” O’Mara wrote in a Facebook post that quickly went viral.

The barista who wrote on the officer’s cup has been suspended “pending the outcome of our investigation,” Starbucks said in their statement.

Starbucks offered to replace the coffee with the correct label, but Chief O’Mara wasn’t buying it, given the company’s previous track record of anti-police sentiment.

“The proverb ‘Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me’ came to mind,” O’Mara wrote.

Starbucks called the incident “totally unacceptable and offensive to all law enforcement.”

O’Mara agreed with the company and stated, “Our society needs a touch of old fashioned civility restored. Maybe we could use this bad event and convert it into something better.”

Elizabeth Warren Asked How She’ll Pay For Her Policies; She Says ‘There’s Always Money’

Published

on

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been asked repeatedly how she plans to pay for something like Medicare for All, and each time the question comes up, it seems as if she can’t give a solid answer. Warren recently dismissed the idea that her ability to provide funding for the massive expansion of federal programs she wants to make law will be hindered by finite amounts of cash available. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Warren made the comments during an interview in November with Lily Eskelsen Garcia, president of the National Education Association. Garcia had asked Warren about increasing funding for Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, and how that might be paid for. “So the answer is yes. And pay for it? This is about our priorities, what matters most to us,” Warren answered. “A budget is about priorities. … The way I see it, there’s always, come on, there’s always money. It’s there. Are we going to spend the money on defense or are we going to spend the money on our children?” https://youtu.be/X7PsSTivy1E Warren’s approach to financial questions about her ambitious policies has been one of the biggest sources of criticism of her campaign. She has insisted, for example, that Medicare for All can be implemented without taxes being raised on middle class Americans, partially by reducing the amount of money allocated toward military spending. Most of the other Democratic candidates running for president have come out and criticized Warren for not being totally honest about where the money for her programs is going to come from. Warren has waved off these criticisms, saying they are just rehashing Republican talking points.

Michelle Obama Weighs In On Trump Impeachment; Says ‘It’s Surreal’

Published

Former First Lady Michelle Obama recently opened up and expressed her thoughts on the current impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, stating she feels the whole thing is “surreal.” Obama recently conducted an interview with NBC’s “Today Show” where she spoke with Jenna Bush Hager. During the course of the interview, Obama said she is optimistic the division ripping through America will eventually subside. Here’s more from Fox News: The daughter of former President George W. Bush asked Obama whether the country can come back from the divisive situation unfolding in Washington, D.C., as polls show Americans largely split along party lines on impeachment. “It’s surreal, I think,” said Obama, speaking from Vietnam, where she is on a trip to promote the education of young girls. “For the last impeachment hearing [in 1998], a lot of young people weren’t around for that. I don’t think people know what to make of it. But do I think we can come back from it? Oh yeah. “We’ve seen worse times, we’ve seen tough times in this country. You know, we’ve gone through depressions and wars and bombings and terrorist attacks, and we’ve gone through Jim Crow, and we’ve always come out stronger. And that’s what we have to continue to believe because what’s our choice? To ball up in a corner and call it a day? Well, that’s not fair to this next generation that’s coming before us that are counting on us to get this right,” Obama continued. Obama said the country should not view the impeachment inquiry as a battle of “us or them” or of Democrats against Republicans. https://twitter.com/TODAYshow/status/1204019184532885507 Obama concluded by saying, “We are all here as part of this country. We all want the same things, it’s just sometimes that gets lost in the noise.”
