To all kilbirnie residents:
A very important issue was brought to those attending our Spring General Meeting, Tuesday, march 16, 2016.
Large industrial chicken houses in Wicomico County, Maryland Neighborhoods.
A process is currently in motion to put a massive industrial-sized house operation at the northwest corner of Walston switch and Shavox Roads.
At least four to eight 60-foot by 600-foot chicken houses are planned, which if approved would result in millions of chickens processed each year and thousands of trucks transporting chickens on Walston Switch and Shavox roads.
there is a “Protect the Paleo Channel” Public Forum, which will be held March 22, 2016 at 6 p.m. at the Wicomico youth and Civic Center to address this issue.
In tough economic times, everyone likes to save, but a restaurant in Texas is reportedly offering unique, politically incorrect discounts based on the looks of its customers.
A receipt from Dallas-based Twisted Root Burger Co. gave a two-cent discount to one customer for having the “Best Butt” and for being “Best Looking.”
It was a penny off for each winning attribute.
The discount became known online when Reddit user “caraficionado24″ posted the photo with the comment, “A friend of mine got complimented rather sneakily at Twisted Root Burger.”
“The person who received it was a female,” Jason Boso, the owner of the restaurant told WND, adding the employee who gave her the receipt “is male and is single, so I’m sure he did it because he was hitting on her.”
“We have one or two people sending email saying were sexist with that,” Boso added. “Maybe I am a little sexist, but 99 percent think it’s funny, so I’m gonna go with the 99 percent. We don’t let the haters decide what we do.”
Boso’s restaurant, which has seven locations in Texas, also offers discounts for:

On a beautiful August day when most people are enjoying the weather and leisure time, self-made man Al Letizio organized a protest against the President of the United States.
This New Hampshire businessman set up signage outside his business to let Mr. Obama know that in America, the free market still works and small businessmen aren’t obligated to grovel on bended knee to thank the federal government for allowing them to exist.
Al Letizio owns a small food service business that just happens to be situated along President Obama’s motorcade route to his rally in New Hampshire today. Mr. Letizio, like so many other small business owners across the country, is annoyed at the President’s infamous, off-prompter declaration that business owners in America “didn’t build that.” In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The federal government is funded by people like Mr. Letizio.
Washington, D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray is joining the chorus of leftists opposed to Chick-fil-A, a Christian-owned, fast-food restaurant chain. Like other political leaders, Gray has now publicly proclaimed that he will not support the company’s expansion into the city after Dan Cathy, president of Chick-fil-A, publicly opposed same-sex marriage earlier this month.
As The Associated Press notes, Gray’s comments — which were made on Twitter — mirror previous statements made by the mayors of Boston, Chicago and San Francisco. On Saturday, the Democrat took to the social media platform to lambaste the company, claiming that Chick-fil-A advocates “bigotry” and that he “would not support #hatechicken.”
See some of his controversial tweets, below:
While he opposes the company’s stance, he said in his tweets that he cannot bar or ban them from the area. Currently, the company has no plans to create new locations in Washington, D.C., and it has only two locations — one food truck and another store on the campus of The Catholic University.
In contrast to Gray and his leftist compatriots, Republicans, like Sarah Palin and Rick Santorum, have been vocal about their support for the fast-food chain. Among the most intriguing backers has been evangelical leader Bill Graham. On Thursday, he issued the following statement:

I awoke this morning at 5am to the sound of my six month old daughter Amelia crying. When I entered her dark room I saw my wife, struggling to stay awake, holding Amelia in one arm as she was attempting to work on her barely lit computer screen with her other arm. My wife Paula is an entrepreneur and a business owner, she also happens to be a first generation immigrant, who suffered through much chasing her American dream–all of her hard work culminating in her pledging allegiance to our flag as part of her citizenship ceremony, still one of the proudest days of our lives.
I am writing of this incident because it succinctly describes a scenario repeating itself all over America today. Small business owners are making incredible sacrifices in the struggle to keep their businesses afloat. This is the reason the President’s “you didn’t build that” comment has infuriated Americans across the political spectrum. The simple fact is that my wife did build “that.” She built her business, through countless hours of hard work and a commitment to a quality work product. I marvel daily at the countless hours she spends at her home office designing and repairing small business websites. She is the very epitome of the American dream, collectively enhanced but most importantly, self-made and personally driven.
The President’s statements are equally infuriating because he is attempting to create a fissure between Americans where there isn’t one. No Republican I am aware of is running for office on a platform of no taxes, no roads, no teachers and no military. I cite these examples because the President chose to mention the use of roads, the work of good teachers and the development of the backbone of the modern internet, through a military research initiative, as examples of how government should be the primary recipient of accolades for individual success. This is absurd and displays a backward logic which is hard to justify. It is the very success of people, such as my wife, willing to put their names behind a business endeavor, with no guarantee of success, that finance the government’s spending and projects the President speaks of. It is my wife’s–along with millions of others struggling for a better tomorrow–sweat, toil and willingness to take a risk that has made America exceptional amongst nations, not its roads.
The economy is clearly struggling, Americans are hurting and they are scared. Scared, that for the first time, yesterday may have been the best it was ever going to be. This has never been a part of our national psyche. The President’s statements will haunt him in this election as they echo all over our vast country. As my wife and I struggle through this wretched recovery, I feel the pain of Americans hoping and praying that there is a better tomorrow and I ask the President to stop creating division by asking who built what, and to focus on getting our growing legion of unemployed Americans, just asking for a chance to build anything, back to work.

The Montana Department of Employment, Division of Labor Standards claimed a small rancher was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.
GOV’T AGENT: “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.”
RANCHER: ”Well, there’s my hired hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.
Then there’s the mentally challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here.
He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life.
He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.”
GOV’T AGENT: “That’s the guy I want to talk to – the mentally challenged one.”
RANCHER: “That would be me.”
We’ve all heard the stories of shakedowns and bullying that occurs to many non-unionized workers and private business owners. However, the thuggery might have gone beyond the pale recently when one Ohio business owner was repeatedly harassed, then shot and almost killed, for allegedly being non-union.
John King reportedly owns one of Toledo’s largest non-union electrical contracting businesses. With 25 employees and an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, King’s business reportedly often thrives while other unionized electrical contracting businesses fail due to their higher rates.
King’s success is what is leading many to believe he became a prime target for union thugs. But King holds no animus towards the union, stating that he only ever wanted to do what he loved to do. Labor Union Report writes that after some college, did a stint with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers before being drafted into the military. Following his service, however, King went solo and became the youngest independent electrical contractor in the Toledo area.
But King’s success, especially during the recession, may have come with a price. That price has included lawsuits, general harassment, slashed tires and multiple incidents of vandalism, just to name a few. LUR reports:
Unfortunately, being a non-union electrical company, King has always been on the radar of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). In fact, in 2006, he won a significant case against the IBEW at the US Court of Appeals, after the union had improperly promised his electricians jobs on union sites if they voted the union into King’s company.
