    Everyone's entitled to their opinion. That's what makes this country better than all the rest. Doesn't matter if you agree with their opinion or not, you get to have one.

    I think Bezos is a douche. So is Rahm.

    And on topic, there already is a Chick-Fil-A in Chicago. Are they planning on yanking their business license for that franchise, or is this entire event just a big pile of grandstanding cowpie?

    I'm going to have to say yes to the bold. It's obvious, isn't it?
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    not sure what point you are trying to make, but I hardly see the benefit of using people you call "religious whackjobs" as a justification for your own behavior, or those you identify with. Nor am I sure how individuals getting up in arms over something stupid justifies the state repressing religious/political opinion.

    But I guess as long as you can wave about the right wing boogey man, you don't have to actually analyze your own

    even the mere threat carries withit a chilling effect, that shouldn't be supported, or excused, by anyone

    ************************************************** **********************************
    Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno says the door isn’t entirely closed on a new Chick-fil-A restaurant opening in his 1st ward.

    Moreno told WBEZ that the owners seeking to build the restaurant have said they won’t support any groups with a political agenda, including those with an anti-gay marriage stance.

    Moreno says if he gets an explicit guarantee from the franchise owner he will consider granting zoning rights to a new Chick-fil-A in Logan Square
    Ald. Joe Moreno open to talks on new Chick-fil-A in Logan Square | WBEZ 91.5 Chicago
    Basically, he's now backtracking. He's trying to make the political aspect more generic and 'even', with the old "traffic issues" stand-by thrown in for good measure.

    His backtracking implies that ALL political views are unwelcome as they "won’t support any groups with a political agenda, including those with an anti-gay marriage stance."... key word: "any"... so one has to wonder if he will also oppose the groups listed below who DO openly support SSM.

    That should say enough right there.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Reading about Chick-fil-A is making me hungry, I think I will go to Chick-fil-A for lunch.
