Chick-fil-A is where American politics really lives, so eat it | Colin Horgan

Aug 2, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Guardian

In America, a fast-food chain opposing gay marriage has engaged people in a way that politicians can only dream of 'Politics by chicken breast' a customers queue outside a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Arizona on Chick-fil-A appreciation day.

I am and will continue to boycott Chick-Fil-A as long as they choose to spend their revenue supporting anti-gay, anti-marriage-rights legislation and organizations.
No one's claimed they don't have a "right to their opinion," of course. That's a strawman. They have a right to an opinion, and I have a right to mine.
I agree and I'm happy that you will be boycotting them. The lines were already very very very very long one more was not needed.

Another nice thing about Chick-fil-A is that all the servers are extremely polite, clean, hard workers, speak clearly and distinctly, are educated and many are working as part of the Chick-fil-A education/scholarship program. You can tell the difference between a Chick-fil-A server and what you typically find at McDonald's. The difference is like night and day. No wonder many prefer the atmosphere of Chick-fil-A.
I have noticed that too...the Chickfila clerks smile, say hello, and look you in the eyes while they deal with you....the slugs at Mickey D, Burker King and the others, growl somthing like,'whatchuwant?' while they work as slow as possible, knowing that this is the only way they can get back at the man for 400 years of oppression. Chickfila places are clean well lit and comfy, the others are usually nasty, sticky, and old and dark.

Palin got pregnant to snag Todd and her daughter got pregnant out of wedlock and yet she goes over to the fast food restaurant to support marriage. Yahoo!!!
55 percent of people who get married get divorced, and with younger people it is more like 75 percent get divorced, and the ones who stay married, most all of them only stay married cause they have young kids or they cannot afford a divorce.
Go out to any suburb or rural area in the U.S. and watch all of the unhappy, desperate, poor married men ALL trying to cheat. Hundreds at a time, every single day, everywhere you go. So this straight marriage stuff is obviously not working out. Go wait for a bus in a suburb of a suburb and what you will see is EVERY married man driving by staring at women at the bus stop, making U-turns, trying to cheat, and some even do it in front of their wives. God they all hate their wives. Why is that?? Could it be American marriage is totally dysfunctional?? Of course it is. They say that only about 3 percent of the 45 percent who don't divorced actually like being married. Talk about being in prison, talk about living lives of quiet desperation. That's what being married is. If they changed divorce laws, most everyone would be divorced. Most people don't get divorced only cause they can't afford to.
Palin, everytime her kids get to be about 10 years old, she has another one to keep Todd there. When the first three were 10-12, she had another kid, then when that one got to be 10, she had another kid. See the pattern? That's so that he never leaves, and then when she did that the last time, she was in her 40s and that's when women have kids with Down Syndrome. Anything to keep old Todd in the house.
You go girl. I like how you think.

You just keep telling yourself that.

Romney the "anything" is better than Obama the Dictator.

We the People are pissed off.

What happened in 2010, is about to repeat itself.

So hilariously stupid one hardly knows where to begin.
No one on the left are "hypocrites" for opposing the company's corporate views or those of its owner. There's no "party line," just opinions different from yours. Discrimination against gay people has nothing to do with them merely "holding an opinion." Kissing is not a "disgusting display of sexuality in public." And to claim the former while giggling over taking pictures of said people kissing and "posting them all over Facebook" (do you even know what that IS?) is hypocritical in the extreme.
In short, you are clearly a moron.
This is an example of what is coming in November. Progressives screwed up big time. Still are. Practically the whole media controlled by that side of the ledger and people have had enough. Times are bad. It is time for progressives to consolidate the wins and wait for another day to continue the fight. That would be the best advice you can get. But you won't. A simple warning is there to see. Just one company. An ownership with guts on their convictions whether you or I like it or not.....Many people worth less then half they did and more four years ago and the progressive battle cry...You lost get over it. Never forget. Never..

You are kidding, right? Americans are counting the days to go vote November 6th. It comes dow to, do we want to see Romney's tax records, or do we want 4 more years of failed Government? Guess. The new jobs report comes out tomorrow, and it looks like it will be another loser. Americans want jobs. They want our economic problems solved. They want sanity restored to our Government. See you November 6th.

Your silly propaganda is incorrect - never had a freebie courtesy of the US taxpayer except for a personal "stimulus" gift from Bush-basby.

Perhaps the chick-a-lickers do not know how to vote - but know how to take a side of backward thinking with their chicken!

as a professional chef, and someone who has read recent scientific classics that have made ridiculous the idea that God is dead, I decided to treat myself yesterday to a Chick Fil A:

best chicken sandwich on earth

and I work at a Michelin-rated restaurant

Take that Adam and Steve.

since obie was deemed president, all the freaks have been given a pass to attack America's traditions.

screaming "hater, bigot, racist" does not automatically exclude the screamer from actually acting in the capacity he/she is accusing others of. To the contrary, it's usually the racist that is first to scream "racist".

Most normal Americans know this. But by all means, freaks, keep it up.

I prefer McDonalds' people, who are at least more likely to be human beings and not plastic, polished, phony robots grinning idiotically and mouthing programmed platitudes.
Being a reTHUGlican, you probably prefer the latter.:)
Actually, most sane U.S. citizens prefer someone with personal hygiene that is able to speak English, get the order and change right, and provide prompt, courteous service. No need to have someone that just took a shit and didn't wash prepare your sandwich to prove how "tolerant" you are... unless you're a DemoncRat.

I believe gutless wonders hide behind their bigotry, hide behind their racism and believe people should be discriminated in the name of hugging their religion and/or fux.

The good news is that junk fed backward thinkers can continue to grease their mouths with chicker-filler and others can give their money to businesses who are forward thinkers.
