We are no longer regulars at El Sombrero as of TODAY. Today is the "Day Without Immigrants" protest that is going on across the country. El Sombrero decided to join this protest/boycott and shut their doors today, I will henceforth boycott their business. Since they are making a political statement, I shall do the same. I shall also let them know why they will not get my business from this day forward. They are the only local Mexican restaurant I drove by to inspect their business status and saw them closed. The restaurants that have chosen to remain open will henceforth get my business.
If this also shows up in the original post, it is because Blogger is having a problem with publishing the edit. It shows up in the post editing menu, but does not publish. The web page just hangs and when I check on the post by looking at the refreshed blog, no changes happen (even after flushing the cache).
ALSO up for consideration:
Here is an article posted on WMPM's web site:
Protesters Block Traffic, Shout Obscenities - About 200 Hispanics marched along US70 and US301 in Smithfield on Monday, one of hundreds of planned rallies and work boycotts to show the importance of illegal immigrants. This was the fifth march in Smithfield in recent weeks by undocumented workers, and some people are growing tired of the protests. One person followed the immigrants in a van displaying a sign in support of tougher laws for those who enter the United States illegally. Other motorists honked their horns in apparent opposition of the march. Smithfield Police had difficulty with the protesters blocking traffic and also shouting obscenities at bystanders.
Yeah, that is going to gain my sympathy to their cause...sure it is.
