You can think the "appreciation" day stuff is stupid, but that doesn't change the fact that my purpose for going was to support my local franchise since they have recently come under fire.
    Actually, you should probably re-read my post because it wasn't premised on you saying anything about liberals since you didn't say anything about them. However, my comment was premised on the fact that this "support for Chik Fil A" is based on an hyperbolic reaction to a nearly nonexistent problem as evidenced by the fact that hardly anyone, including liberals, supported Chicago and Boston's efforts against Chik Fil A.

    Did any of you buy iPhones, iPads, whatever iCrap? You know the CEO was a major asswipe, right? Got his girl high to get laid and sure enough got her pregnant, and then denied the kid was his from the getgo. Even when paternity tests proved it, he persisted and set his army of lawyers in delay after delay. That was just a small part of the assmunch that was Steve Jobs.

    You folks who don't support Chik, who think what the CEO says or does should affect the government's ability to license to them - do you support that? How dear are your convictions? Gonna give up that iGarbage?

Dan Cathy, on the other hand, has done far more to deny people their constitutional rights than merely running his mouth. He has actively donated money to pro-discrimination hate groups.
    How am I lying exactly? It's nice that the mayors retracted their statements if this is true.

    I know that most liberals and Americans recognized the intolerance, ignorance and hatred voiced by these individuals in governments that wanted to hurt Chick Fil A. I think it's a problem if a local government thinks they can punish a business over the CEO's personal views Also, wouldn't these planned "kiss-ins" also be a hyperbolic reaction? You can have your opinion on the "appreciation day" stuff, but that doesn't change the fact that I went out today, purchased their food and met many many people in my community who were pro-SSM but also wanted to support a company that recently came under fire over the CEO's personal beliefs (which are also fairly mainstream). I want to stand up against bigotry, hatred, ignorance and intolerance by hopefully showing these people in governments that when they want to abuse their power to punish a company over the owner's personal views that the American community will side with the First Amendment and support that company

    I certainly don't agree with that, but I'm not sure how buying a chicken sandwich translates to showing them. Wouldn't donating money to a PAC that supports one of their opponents make more sense than ingesting fried food? The message you are really sending is, "I'm for traditional marriage and I agree with the remarks of the president of this company" not "I don't like intolerant government officials".

    Unbelievable. So, what you're saying is that Barack Obama was a liar. (You should like that designation, PD.)

    He was lying here:

    In June of 2006, Senator Obama stated on the Senate floor that marriage was between one man and one woman. He spoke during the debate over a constitutional amendment on marriage and asserted his support for marriage as one man and one woman and his view that debating the issue was merely a distraction from the real issues.

    While in office, he voted against an amendment to define marriage as between one man and one woman. He also co-sponsored the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act of 2007.
    He was lying here:

    These views on marriage, civil unions, and religion were continually reaffirmed throughout the 2008 campaign. In an interview with Pastor Rick Warren, Senator Obama defined marriage as between one man and one woman and noted that it was also a sacred union in which God was a factor. He then stated that he would not support an amendment to the constitution to define marriage as this is not something left to the constitution to define. He states that the matter of marriage is left to the States.
    And he was lying here:

    In 2004, Barack Obama stated in a US Senate campaign debate with Alan Keyes that marriage is between one man and one woman, and that he supports civil unions but not gay marriage. He stated that his religion dictated that marriage was defined this way and that when a man and a woman are married, they are performing something before God. He also stated that this position does not translate into public policy. He continued by asserting that homosexuality is innate and is not a choice, and that marriage is not a civil right but a tradition that needed to be preserved.
    No, I guess he was just pretending. *Sigh*

    Yes, I think he was lying. Why are you having such a hard time believing that I and others think he was being dishonest? You refuse to answer that question.

    I support SSM, I'm pretty public about it. You can perceive what you want, but I also support the First Amendent and don't want government officials to think that it's ok to punish a business because of the CEO's personal views. I bought a chicken sandwich, and then bought some oreos at Target.

    He certainly wasn't spending it on his daughter. But hey, some folks will rationalize anything to keep their iCrap, right?
