    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Um...unless you live in one of those cities that doesn't really make much sense.

    I don't understand your point. Do you think I'm lying when I say that I think Obama was anti-SSM as a political move? If so, on what basis do you accuse me of that?

    Since about 50-80% of what I say is sarcasm, that's never a bad idea.

    What exactly are you applauding, if not the fact that people support discrimination?

    This isn't a debate over the appropriate tax rate where we simply have a disagreement; he supports discrimination under the law and believes that some Americans should be less entitled to their rights than other Americans. That's a line you just don't cross.

    Because discrimination is not an issue where you just agree to disagree and be done with it. Equality is an absolutely non-negotiable point. A blogger put it better than I could today:

    This isn’t about mutual tolerance because there’s nothing mutual about it. If we agree to disagree on this issue, you walk away a full member of this society and I don’t. There is no “live and let live” on this issue because Dan Cathy is spending millions to very specifically NOT let me live. I’m not trying to do that to him.

    Asking for “mutual tolerance” on this like running up to a bully beating a kid to death on the playground and scolding them both for not getting along. I’m not trying to dissolve Mr. Cathy’s marriage or make his sex illegal. I’m not trying to make him a second-class citizen, or get him killed. He’s doing that to me, folks; I’m just fighting back.

    All your life, you’re told to stand up to bullies, but when WE do it, we’re told WE are the ones being intolerant? Well, okay. Yes. I refuse to tolerate getting my ass kicked. “Guilty as charged.”

    But what are you guilty of? When you see a bully beating up a smaller kid and you don’t take a side, then you ARE taking a side. You’re siding with the bully. And when you cheer him on, you’re revealing something about your own character that really is a shame."

    It's still incredibly stupid since not even most liberals support Chicago and Boston's didn't even support their targeting of Chik Fil A. All this "appreciation day" nonsense just turns Chik Fil A into an anti-SSM mascot instead of the regular restaurant I bought a sandwich from 2 days ago which puts off pro-SSM people who were unfazed by Chicago and others' stupid decision.

    I didn't go to support their views on SSM, but because even I disagree with them I went to support the business that is being targeted for the CEO's opinion, which I think is a violation of the freedom of speech. It was a day designated by the public to support them, not something that the company put on.
