Great interviews like what twelve of them up there? I don't know. Is there that many is it's it's a lot. It's a it's a week's worth of work for me one. So is that is really? Yes. I mean, if you don't know the truth, and yes, just keep saying it. You are fake news. It's going to be one hundred one today. Thank you. Thanks on one hundred one today. Enjoy it's sunny and hot hundred one is not letting up anytime soon, and it's obviously because you're driving a big SUV or something like that. So. I read this story, and I was laughing. And Mike is this really like a union like what is going on? I mean, you have some of these people they're not really unions. The unions are trying to unionize like the legitimate or you don't like union. So like the like normal unions were trying to unionize fast food workers. Right. And you deserve fifteen bucks an hour. Yeah. Yeah. Because we want to get your dues. And of course, I like join us. We'll help you get it. And then you're you're actually going to be like eleven before taxes, we're gonna get our cut, and blah, blah, blah. So anyway, there's a there's a fast food chain up in the northwest where they're really weird. And it's called burger Ville burger Ville. This is making me hungry burger Ville, we go there, and I'm assuming you get burgers. Anyway. Apparently, the the workers there wanted to wear pins. Right now, we're in the airport. We patch that we passed the TGI Fridays and Ryan made the joke about the flare. Hey, having a flare on so apparently they want to put on some flair to when they work at the burger Ville fast food joint. Right. It's a chain up there in the north west Pacific northwest. They wanted to wear pins that said abolish ice. Really, no one is illegal. They wanted to do all this while they were working you're going to burger Ville, and they're like, hi, welcome to burger Bill. Can I take your order and you see they got the abolish ice pan? You're like, really? So apparently, they were mad when the restaurant chain revised its button policy after some employees came to work wearing these these pens. And here's here's the great hope for I have for you. Okay. The great news. I hate the word hope because Obama ruined. The great news is that apparently customers were very offended by the in the Pacific northwest customers were offended by abolish ice. And no one is a legal people were funded by bets. This is like Washington-area company Pacific northwest wherever the heck they did just said Pacific northwest. So I'm assuming it's up in their Portland. Crazy town Seattle crazy town, Oregon, Oregon, let's say in Long Island, Oregon, so. So the the burger joint had to put out a statement to Fox News because it got out there. Some of our employees been wearing buttons expressing their political views at work at Brecon burger Ville while Berger Ville had a long standing verbal policy prohibiting the wearing a personal buttons. We'd never written policy about this. So the people wouldn't actually the employees wouldn't listen they had to put out a written policy because they said we had to keep its facilities inclusive me we didn't want to piss off the people that have a brain. That's pretty much what it comes down to. The workers were still mad. You ready for this? I'm not making this up. The company said the new rule goes into effect this coming Thursday. The decision comes during negotiations with the fast food chains union burger Ville workers union, it's an ice. The burger Ville workers union like you're flipping burgers. You're making fries. I'm not taking anything away from you. But you could be replaced like that. Oh, Ryan's on the website. The burgers do legal issues. These barriers and make me hungering. So the union on Facebook said the. Baseball union called on corporate to in state policy allowing the political protests pins to be worn at work. And what's funny again? At least burger Ville said no you are not allowed to do. This yet. The NFL is too scared to other players. Listen just shut up and stand for the anthem. You idiots you're making a gazillion dollars. What are you doing stand for the anthem? So yeah. Apparently, the HR director of burger Ville told the Oregonian guests provided feedback that they didn't want to see the personal and political messages while they eight additionally, some employees is expressed at the content of the buttons was drawing unwanted attention that made them uncomfortable. And there you have it. So let the Democrats continue to run on abolish ice an amnesty for everybody, and you name, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, people don't want this. Even over the Pacific northwest. What what are they want? They want the pepper corn cheeseburger. Oh my God. I wouldn't go for that one. Tillamook cheese. Tillamook is good. But I wouldn't go for that. Colossal. No, I can't go for any of that stuff anymore. Again. I'd look how many times have to tell you Ryan. You know, my wife. She looks at me is an object. That's it while they do have a vegetarian burger for you. I shut up. I have I have a hell of a brain. And my wife literally is like I only married you for your body. And and here's the thing. I'm okay with that. I'm okay with that. And if you know, my wife, you know, that's true to be also. So there you go that's not fake news seven thirty three. So they want to wear abolish ice, and no one is a legal pins at work. And you're like, no, no, you people don't want to see it. I love it. I love it. And they did a uniform policy to see it's not allowed imagine trying to do that here. Imagine the outrage I wouldn't even do like, I know I wouldn't do that. All right common sense. But that's what good burgers union, the bus riders union down here level. Where's our union? We have. No, I don't want one. I don't like anybody else.
