Tidbits from Lester & Charlie’s Wienermobile News Desk

Here’s a surprise

religious-double-standardIf you’re Christian and commit a crime in America, you aren’t really Christian.

If you’re Muslim and commit a crime in America, of course you’re Muslim.

Power to the Little People

Maybe we don’t really care if climate change turns the planet into a peeled Ginkgo nut. It’s not our problem, so let’s pay it forward.

But the next generation isn’t buying it and they want their day in court. So a group of 12 to 16 year-olds petitioned Washington state “to find the state Department of Ecology in contempt for failing to adequately protect them and future generations from global warming.” The judge ruled that department was acting in accordance with the timeline of the Clean Air Act, but granted the kids their day in court based on it being a Constitutional right. Well, baby steps.

As the Native American saying goes, “We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”  Read more here.


Papa’s Priority

soggy pizzaPapa John’s Pizza doesn’t exactly have a for-the-people reputation, at least among the freeloaders who want higher minimum wages, affordable health care or any of them-there people who choose non-heterosexual lifestyles.

The company doesn’t have a lot of respect for stomachs, either, and now they want us to stomach a $2.99 “priority fee” — meaning that, for just three bucks, your delivery goes to the front of the line. Screw granny. She shouldn’t have ordered an hour ago unless she was ready to pony up and have it delivered at least in time for her funeral.

Oh, and this rocket delivery fee (which comes with no guaranteed delivery window) is in addition to the separate “delivery fee” that no one understands, either. And you’re still supposed to tip the delivery person, but you’re probably too broke because your Pepperoni, Canadian bacon, spicy Italian sausage, onions, green peppers, mushrooms and black olives with delivery and priority fee just cost 4 hours worth of minimum wages

Update: Philosophers are working on what would happen if a person ordered Papa John’s priority pizza from a Basic Economy seat on American Airlines.
