Mom orders a cake from Publix to honor her son graduating "Summa Cum Laude" from college.

High-school drop-out Publix cake decorator (who deserves a $1m retirement package) refuses to write "Cum" on the cake because it's a "bad word". 🙄

I am shocked that they ever allowed open carry at all.

They are one of the biggest, if not the biggest, influencers in the FL Retail Federation. Based on the articles I read, it seems they spend a quarter of their lobbying time looking for tax handouts, a quarter of their lobbying time looking to cut sanitation regulations, and half their lobbying time killing gun bills.

Every year they kill open carry in FL, and for a decade they killed the parking lot law.

Hey, different strokes for different folks.
There's a 2 year old Publix 1/4 mile from my house. Sits on its very own lot...not a strip shopping center
It even has a covered parking garage....very nice when it's 98 degrees.

Aldi and Walmart: 2 miles. They're across the street from each other in a very busy intersection in a large and very busy shopping centers.

To me, they're both warehouses. I prefer to buy food stuff in a conventional "old school" grocery store.

I have absolutely zero issues paying a bit more.

BTW, I'll wager money that Walmart, Aldi and the Trader stock more Made in China products than you'd find in a Publix.

Considering most of Aldi is off brand German stuff, not sure you'd win that bet.

You're probably right...I did post earlier that Aldi owns the Trader and the $$ goes to Berlin,
Moreover, I've only stepped once inside an Aldi...that's enough for me.
But..
Whatever floats one's boat.

BTW, what's Aldi's and the Trader's firearms policy? We know Walmart's and Publix's.

How about Chick-fil a's?

No idea. I carry concealed and if it isn't a State or Federal (or school/hospital) building I don't give a shit what their firearm policy is.

Go ahead...make fun of this individual.

But, you are aware that recently the Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution affords an individual the right of refusal to perform or engage in activities they may find morally or religiously offensive.

Just like the Constitution affords us the right to keep arms...
That individual's has the right to refuse.

Who are we to criticize?

Aldi just banned open carry a couple of days ago.

What does the Latin word for "with" have to do with religion or morality? I suppose the stretch can be made in a society having 27 (or, whatever the number is now) genders. The transformation of "Idiocracy" from comedy to documentary has happened because we let them get away with it: "Let's not hurt the idiot's feelings. "
It is, it is a glorious thing to be a pirate king.
