LOL. But probably not O's fault. I hear the franchise fees are steep.

I think it was bad management as well. The restaurant was always dirty and poorly managed. I agree that the Franchise was also a factor but if it's making money then keep it going. This might be a good location for PANERA who is looking to move.

Ambitious politicians never openly root for their party’s presidential nominee to lose.

The Honesty Gap

1 hour, 47 minutes ago by Thomas Sowell

There may be some poetic justice in the recent revelation that Hillary Clinton, who has made big noises about a “pay gap” between women and men, paid the women on her Senate staff just 72 percent of what she paid the men. The Obama White House staff likewise has a pay gap between women and men, as of…

Buffett: Warren Too Mean, Hillary Possibly Too Sick

1 day ago by Emily Zanotti

Warren Buffett is really looking forward to 2016. Sure, the Buffett rule didn't work out - partly because it turns out his secretary only pays more in taxes than he does because his wealth is packed into capital gains - but he's already hedging his bets that Hillary Clinton's administration will have…

Two Reasons Why I Don't Believe a Word of Samantha Power's AIPAC Speech

1 day, 1 hour ago by Aaron Goldstein

Earlier today I threw cold water on UN Ambassador Samantha Power's speech to AIPAC after Ross had praised it. Let me give you two reasons why. First, Power stated, "The United States of America will not allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon. Period." Does anyone believe that for a minute? This sounds…

I would certainly not have predicted Utah to be the next state to take up the mantle of marijuana legalization, but thankfully, they are.
