Mayor Bloomberg is pro big business and anti regulation of "Wall Street" forget they are the ones who caused the "Train wreck" the economy is in. It seems to me as though if something is not his idea then it has to be wrong.

Good for him. However, the article has a glaring mistake. It says, "The fast food restaurantís opposition to gay marriage .. " A restaurant doesn't have an opinion nor were the opinions expressed a matter of corporate policy. The business's president expressed his own personal opinion about gay marriage. There is a world of difference. But kudos to Bloomberg for getting it right this time. Maybe it will make him rethink his Orwellian stance on soft drinks.

Bloomberg is a power-crazed wannabe dictator. He had the law which barred a person from seeking a third consecutive term for mayor changed just for him.

I don't think very many Gay couples (or any other couples) were planning to have their wedding receptions at Chick-fil-lia. Chuck E Cheese, maybe.

Actually, I would prefer that he stop running New York and stick to restaurant reviews.

I was talking with my pastor yesterday after services about the weather here. Unlike New York, the weather here varies quite a bit over areas just a few miles apart. I live in Oro Valley which is 4 miles north of the Tucson city line. The local news was showing all the rainand flooding from the monsson the other day, yet we didn't have any rain at all.

The weather here in Oro Valley averages 5 - 8 degrees cooler than Tucson, and it seems to be dryer also. Although this is considered "the desert", there doesn't seemto be any haboobs here. I have seen haboobs covered by the local news here.

I woudl like to find a house here to rent in Oro Valley if I can, because the weather here is no nice. But there doesn't seem to be a lot of houses for rent here, and the couple that are available are very expensive as this seems to be a rather upscale town.

And it's a hell of a lot better than the 15 degree below zero, and 5 feet of snow I had in New York. That was my main reason for moving to southern Arizona. Tucson and Phoenix are hotter than here.

Personally I am more concerned whether chick-fil-a pays it employees a living wage with health insurance than I am with their position on gay marriage. A business that does not pay a living wage has no business promoting itself as 'christian.'

like any other fast food restaurant there employees work part time, so they don't have to give them benefits, though there managers get health benefits holidays and vacation and health insurance offered to other employees that few if any can afford, here they get $7.25 a hour witch is minimum wage.

1. What's a "living wage"? How much is that?

2. Do you have to pay it to 18 year olds? Why?

3. If you can't operate a business while paying minimum wage, health, Social Security and unemployment - you fold.

How many of your now former employees will be getting minimum wage, health and Social Security while they are on UI?

Are YOU "christian" enough to run a business at a loss? Run it for no profit? Why not?
