There is one side effect of Chick Fil-A’s policy of not opening on Sunday that isn’t talked about much.

Because Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sunday the business that normally would go to Chick-fil-A goes elsewhere.

While that business likely isn’t as big as the rest of the week and there are likely a few people for who no chicken sandwich can replace Chick-fil-A (personally I think the spicy fillet at Wendy’s is better) There are a lot of small eateries that are very grateful to not have to compete with Chick-Fil-A for at least one day a week.

MSM in general and MSNBC In particular is a lot like Chick-fil-A on Sunday to conservative sites. Ignoring stories and giving us the business

Case in point, Project Veritas and the Obamacare Navigator story:

Last week we had three posts on the subject of Project Veritas’ video showing navigators advising people to lie concerning their income including an exclusive interview with Daniel Francisco recorded before the release of the first video.

Since that time a second interview has been released with more navigators illustrating that Juan Williams not withstanding, this wasn’t an isolated incident.

And Saturday I interviewed Daniel again on DaTechGuy on DaRadio

and yesterday Project Veritas tweeted us that more is coming…

 

But if you aren’t reading conservative site, or watching fox news or local news in Texas you still haven’t heard of this.

Just like the breaking Census scandal. This broke Monday Night at the New York Post. Yesterday the census department said this:

“We learned about the information today, and we’re reviewing the information contained in that article,” said Luiz Santos, the acting director of the division of congressional liaison and communications in the Department of Labor’s inspector general’s office. Santos said he could neither confirm nor deny whether the IG’s office had opened an investigation.

Zero hedge put it well:

Following the White House’s ignorance of anything that could be going on at the Census Bureau (apart from knowing for sure that the report on jobs data manipulation was misleading), the Census Bureau itself has chimed in…

*CENSUS BUREAU SEES NO ‘SYSTEMIC MANIPULATION’ OF JOBS DATA

So that’s good then – just unsystematic?

So this is the first they have heard of it and even if it happened it is “unsystematic”.

Not according to the latest from the post today:

I don’t know how high up in the Census Bureau the orders to fake employment survey data came from, but the director of the Philadelphia region was aware of those charges against one of his field representatives back in 2010.

Fernando E. Armstrong, the regional director at the time, admitted as much in an internal Census report I have reviewed.

And that field representative, Julius Buckmon, who filed as many as 100 fake reports a month — and admitted to me faking household survey reports — was not the only field rep to do so, according to a Census source.

Lets review:

1. We have a report of fraud to manipulate labor states before an election
2. a statement by the Census bureau saying they just heard about it and it’s not systematic
3. A follow-up report that directly contradicts the statement of the Census bureau.

There is a word for a story like that: Newsworthy

But not if you are the MSM, not if you are MSNBC and not if you are Morning Joe who has yet to find either of these stories worth their time.

Perhaps  this  might because they like to spread the wealth. Because they leave these stories to sites like mine they give us traffic and visibility. They are simply trying to help the little guy by giving us a chance by giving people a reason to visit us and hit or tip jars.

However a more cynical person you likely conclude this is because they don’t want to change the Obamacare story focus from the web site and certainly not wanting to deal with fraud before the president’s election. They want to protect this administration & this president.

Hmmm maybe they ARE like Chick-fil-A. It’s all about loyalty to the religion of liberalism and to their God.

Update: The new Veritas video is out:

I’ll have more to say about this tomorrow.

via Robert Stacy, I’m DaTechGuy and I endorse this message from Mark Kirkorian:

Instead, we should answer Question 9 by checking the last option — “Some other race” — and writing in “American.” It’s a truthful answer but at the same time is a way for ordinary citizens to express their rejection of unconstitutional racial classification schemes. In fact, “American” was the plurality ancestry selection for respondents to the 2000 census in four states and several hundred counties.

So remember: Question 9 — “Some other race” — “American”. Pass it on.

I talk a lot about being a Sicilian, but that is said because the “American” part is understood. Maybe it needs to be emphasized a bit more these days.

I’m American I’m proud and lucky to be it and if Sicily was so great my grandparents would have stayed there.

This was the letter I sent to the editor of my local paper concerning this article that I blogged about yesterday:

The Bigotry of low expectations

Hello:

I was quite distressed reading today’s paper that our Mayor running for re-election apparently is planning to endorse the count of illegal immigrants in the Census count.

The suggestion that we should aid those disobeying United States law to continue to violate it is troubling enough, but the idea that we will do it in order to for our advantage as a city to increase the share of state and federal funds paid by our fellow tax payers to support said illegality is frankly disgusting and dishonorable.

Our city is rightly proud of our immigrant history. Italians, French, Finns, Irish and Poles are just some who came not asking for accommodation and assistance but in gratitude for the chance of a better live for themselves and their children. All contributed to our city without violating federal laws. Encouraging illegal immigration insults their memory AND a treats a whole race of people as peons to be cared for rather than equals to be accepted as fellow Americans. I can’t think of a more patronizing or bigoted action.

Some don’t want to enforce these laws. Tell me; shall we choose to ignore the fair housing, gun control, labor or minimum wage laws? Perhaps we can ignore the laws on gay marriage? We live in a representative republic, if we do not like the current laws we can elect representatives to modify or repeal them. Selective law enforcement is tyranny.

If a person running for office is unwilling to enforce the laws they will be sworn to uphold, then they should not stand for office. If a public official feels as an act of conscience they can’t enforce the law they should resign. Otherwise it is their duty to uphold the laws of the land. This is part of the series of rights and responsibilities that come hand in hand with a representative republic. If our mayor is unwilling to support federal law she should stand down.

As of this writing I don’t know if it will be run, we will see.

…that is if he wants one:

Community leaders gathered at the Montachusett Regional Planning office on Friday to talk about the importance of reaching the “hard to count” population living in the area, including low-income residents and illegal immigrants, in the upcoming 2010 census.

Oh we are going to count illegals in the census? The story is titled:

Low-income, illegals must be counted, say local leaders

the mayor’s position?

Wong said she, or a representative from her office, will be part of this year’s Complete Census Count Committee, to provide census workers with relevant information on city demographics, in order to be sure as many people as possible are surveyed.

I think it would be very interesting to see if the mayor directly says that illegal immigrants could be counted rather than deported. Mr. Ford the head of the Minority Coalition in Fitchburg reaction was predictable:

“You’re a human being in that town that affects everybody else’s style of living,” said Ford. “It doesn’t make sense not to count them.”

Yes you do effects peoples style of living, you siphon tax dollars and services from local state and federal government that could be used for oh I don’t know Turning on the street lights. There’s are different words you can use to describe illegal actions to secure tax money from taxpayers. The word I’d use is: “fraud”.

We have a large amount of drug dealers and gangs here in Fitchburg too, they also affect people’s style of living. They provide police hours, a desired service, they spend money in hardware stores for spraypaint, perhaps we shouldn’t arrest them either.

At least one Fitchburg pol sees some trouble with this:

(State Rep)DiNatale said asking illegal immigrants to participate in the census in order to increase federal funding for the population creates a bit of a conflict for him.

Someone needs to ask the mayor directly if she supports counting illegals locally, if she says yes then there is a ready made issue for candidate Michael “Fuzzy” Voisine.

Mayor Wong is considered up and coming in the local democratic party. A few months ago I said the following:

Right now I’m leaning toward the incumbent but it isn’t a clear cut choice for me. The Mayor is a highly educated person who has a lot of theory behind her and is a very hard worker, but Fuzzy has the actual practical experience in real life that is vital on the local level.

If this is the sign of what we’ll be seeing as she rises then I guess my vote is becoming more clear but not in the direction it once was.
