Welp that worked out for them.

Less than a week after posting a sign that told supporters of the Biden Administration to "please take your business elsewhere," the DeBary Diner in central Florida has RUN OUT of food.

"I've gotten so many people calling me from all over the world, from Europe, trying to purchase meals for veterans, which I still haven't been able to organize," the owner, Angie Ugarte, said. "I think that the veterans will be fed for the rest of the year at the rate I'm getting donations."

The sign posted outside the diner in DeBary, Florida, read:

"If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere. God bless America and God bless our soldiers."

Ugarte has owned diner for five years and said posting the sign "was the only thing [she] felt like [she] could do" in response to the disaster in Afghanistan.

"I was just angry; I was just let down," she said. "I felt like one of those mothers or wives or sisters who were going to get that knock on the door.

"I've had people come to the door and look at it and turn around and walk away. And I've had people come into my kitchen while I'm cooking and say, ‘Hey, I like your sign.'"

Ugarte said most of her regular customers are military veterans, and an entire wall inside the diner is full military photos and memorabilia.

"If you really, really still stand behind what's allowed this to happen in the way that it has happened — which was unnecessary — then I really, really don't want to be associated with you in any way and I certainly don't want your business," she said.

Rod Philips, a Vietnam Veterans of America Florida State Council member, personally visited Ugarte's diner to thank her.

"We wanted to come over here and thank you personally," Phillips said to Ugarte. "I respect the presidency of the United States, but this could have been handled much better, much better.

"Being a Vietnam veteran and combat-wounded, I don't wish war on anybody. But there is a proper time and place to get out of there."
