      I've only eaten there once. I tried it for the first time this fall. The food was OK, nothing special. Then I noticed one sign that said "The only difference between those that succeed and those that fail is the willingness to do hard work." Hard work is important, of course. But the sign implied that if you did not succeed, you did not work hard. It implies there is no such thing as risk. It's the Ayn Rand thing, where if a venture fails, it is due to incompetence (it it is someone else's) or because the "looters and moochers" pulled you down (if YOU failed).

      Sometimes people are in the right place at the right time.

      Then I saw a "No Hippies Allowed" sign. It was a decoration, not an actual policy, but it's the sort of decoration that passes for right-wing "humor".

      By themselves, these probably wouldn't have motivated me to take my business elsewhere. But it did motivate me to take a closer look at the business and its owner. Now, I will eat elsewhere.
