It may not mean much to the world, let alone to Texas. But. Know what? It means something to me and Diane. Tomorrow we’re heading to Whataburger and ordering lunch!
Let me explain. For many of us, literally no matter which area of leaning we claim—be it liberal or conservative, be it which flag we’d wave, be it which candidate we support, it’s more than significant it MAKES A DIFFERENCE in our own life what we say, what we do…or what we refuse to do.
To that end, Whataburger calls us. Because. A HUGE BECAUSE. They have just stated they will not allow any customer service to anyone who’s carrying openly a firearm. Hey. You think that’s academic here? You think NRA has no voice? Well, their voice is not background music in an elevator. We are not here to pick the floor. And taking on the NRA is akin to slapping a bee hive.
Still. Today the CEO of Whataburger has made it clear for 780 of their stores…and that’s the total, not exempting any Texas restaurants: they will not serve people with firearms out and open. Or whatever it’s called. For you see in Texas, they take “lock and loaded” to a very public way. And you thought Bonnie and Clyde were metaphors.
So. Lunch tomorrow is set. But even more it’s a very modest way to not be background music…but to sing our song of what we believe offers something in which we believe. And. Their hamburgers are not bad.
