That is shocking. I live on the Hill, and am familiar with Cafe Septieme. I would think that someone on the Hill, known for intellectuals and progressives, would react more positively to employees' desire to express their political sentiments.
I intend not to visit Septieme again unless Mr. Wolfe, the manager who fired the Hispanics, is fired himself.
Thank you.

Thank you.
And since when is someone required to pay out of his pocket for someone else's desire to express his political sentiments in the manner they choose? Nor are "progressive" viewpoints owed more accommodation than others; that is what freedom of expression and opinion in this country is all about. Suppose I decided to tax you so that anti-abortionists could have professional-looking signs printed up--well, then, I expect your tune would alter drastically.

Socialists don't see things like this as "choice ". I guess he should never have opened shop in SanAmnesty to begin with. These gigantic immigration rallies are nothing but a sheer display all undocumented workers , I mean democrats. It's all a party rally and nothing else.
