I Know From Whence I Speak
As a former Lowes' employee, I know about the Lowes philosophy: They're all about customer service, many times at some expense to the individual stores! They're tolerant: they allowed me to quit three separate times, in three separate snits! It took me but about ninety-days to figure out that I'd reached the limit in re-hires: I'm now coded as "not re-hireable!" Lowes bends over backwards to avoid controversy of any stripe; which makes the 'ad pulls' from the cable show "All-American Muslim" completely logical!! On a different page of the Lowes Philosophy book, if Jimmy Johnson pulled a "Kurt Busch" on the racetrack, the company would treat Mr Johnson as they have "All-American Muslim!!"
The only thing I can say to the mentality of California state legislator Ted Lieu: Are owe-bamaesque arschlochs permeating every state legislature?!?
