    Default I hate to say I told you so....

    ...but I told you so. Chik Fil A's CEO's public comments on gay marriage were bad for business. Apparently Chik Fil A learned that the hard way. LOL

    Honestly, I think this alderman should be charged with a civil rights violation. What if they did the same to a business that supports the NAACP or some cause you like?

    I am all for a boycott by citizens, though.
    Leviticus 19:33 And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not do him wrong. 34 The stranger that sojourneth with you shall be unto you as the homeborn among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

    Not surprising....its not the first time the left wing fascists have used extortion against a perceived political enemy. Jesse Jackson was successful in extorting money from
    various businesses with the threat of boycotts in the past....I'm sure we'll see it again in the future.
    Here, instead of a boycott, it was the threat to disallow the business to expand.....

    Someday, the shoe may be on the other foot as the saying goes.....and I'll ignore the crime and injustice as Mott does and say, I told you so....
    Put blame where it belongs
    ATF decided it could not regulate bump stocks during the Obama administration.
    It that time," the NRA wrote in a statement. "The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semiautomatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations."
    The ATF and Obama admin. ignored the NRA recommendations.

    Jesse Jackson can do what he wants. Bill O'Reilly can boycott the French and anybody who cares to can buy American organic, cage free or whatever they choose.

    This Alderman had no right to use state force as he did. Just as some redneck jerk should not be able to stop someone from building a Mosque.
    Leviticus 19:33 And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not do him wrong. 34 The stranger that sojourneth with you shall be unto you as the homeborn among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.

    Its how businesses work, tell them what they want to hear, then once the place is built, tell the fucking Rump Rangers & Carpet Munchers to go to hell.

    in another 15 years, everyone that is doing this anti-gay stuff is going to regret being on the wrong side of history.. They will be forced to live in a world where gay marriage and other rights is just an obvious thing that no one would even bat an eye at. .. and they will always be stuck knowing that they did everything to prevent it. Just like racists today defended separate water fountains during the 60's.

    I hope that when I am 50+, and the youthful generation wants equal rights for their sex robots, that I don't stand in their way either.

    food to me is more important than human rights. If mcdonalds started killing the disabled, I'm sorry, but I know myself and I would still go there and eat my big macs.

    We must do unto Chik-fil-a as Rome did unto Carthage. Every restaurant shall be burned, every executive run through with the sword. Nothing shall be left standing. And the fields of mediocre chicken sandwiches shall be sowed with salt, so that nothing may ever grow there again.
