Hey, that’s MY credit card!  Police were called to Shannon’s Restaurant in Pine Bluff, Arkansas earlier in the week after a customer tried to pay for a meal using his waitress’ own stolen credit card.  Waitress Flora Lunsford called 911 to report that the customer (21-year-old Shamon West) had tried paying for his meal with her stolen credit card.

Officers found other items on West that had been in Lunsford’s purse when it was stolen from her car Sunday at a nearby gas station, including her Social Security card and driver’s license. West is being held at the Jefferson County jail, getting 3 meals daily.

Southern Poverty Law Center feeling the heat…

Up to 60 Conservative organizations (many Christian groups) attacked as “hate groups” by the Southern Poverty Law Center are considering legal action against the Left-wing group.

*Some of the groups targeted included Liberty Counsel, Family Research Council, Alliance Defending Freedom, American Family Association and several evangelical churches.

*The Southern Poverty Law Center was created during the civil rights movement and is credited with putting the Ku Klux Klan out of business. BUT, it has since morphed into an ultra left leaning activist organization exclusively targeting conservative and Christian groups.
