    Don't forget "homophobia" and "fear," the libs favorite disparaging terms for those who disagree with them.

    Once again, freedom of speech only matters if you agree with liberal indoctrination.
    That's right, they're not Chicago values; they're not common gangsters like Rahm Emanuel.

    Exactly like Nabisco and Target. Remind me of what Nabisco and Target are shaking fists at though. I really don't remember. They'll lose my business as soon as I see their fist.

    the one that always get me giggling like a school girl is the claim that, if you are a man and you are against homosexuality it is because you are secretly gay.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    LOL, "radical thinking." In any case, the beliefs aren't the issue. It's the donating to campaigns to hurt other citizens.

    What are you talking about? Chick-fil-A had their freedom of speech and mayors and neighborhoods have their freedom of speech.

    I personally agree with the values Rahm made yet I support the owners of the fast food restaurant right to express themselves.

    I would not eat at that restaurant because of the food selection and and the suppliers it uses for their corporate food products. Yuck ... on the ground meat tumors.

    So if a business owner has a religious viewpoint, it's wrong, but if not, it's right?

    Let's be fair. Either it's alright for all businesses to have any non-violent political view, or admit that you're not being objective.

    As a socialist, no doubt you're for the end of all liberty in the United States anyway. But besides that, since the Congress is so insistent in controlling commerce in this country no matter where it is, here's their chance to do something about it. When Chicago officials go into stop the flow of commerce at Chic-fil-A, Congress can have the US Army go in and blow their ****ing heads off in the name of regulating commerce. I'm sure the Supreme Court won't rule against it.

    That's always seemed incredibly stupid to me. I understanding donating to support policies that will help your business specifically, but not on social issues. That's a good way to lose business.

    So long as Rahm doesn't punish the business owner for his/her point of view, we're good.
