    So did I. All the talk of Chick Fil A made me crave waffle fries. I don't care one way or the other about gay marriage.
    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.

    You gotta talk to grim about this. He, and several other posters, seem to be under the impression that you and everyone who went to this thing are all about crushing same sex marriage.

    You would very likely be wrong about that. I've lived in the south all my life. Liquor stores and porn shops are very successful and long-standing businesses around here. Try again.

    Yeah, if there was a liquor store open on Sunday, the only people showing up to shut it down would be the ****ing feds.

    Actually three words: DAMN HE FAT
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    But they still made the threat. They still used the position of office to put stress upon a free individual for having exercised rights. I'm sorry, but that's not acceptable. Neither in the reality that played out nor in the hypothetical I laid out.

    It's not acceptable.

    Free speech is alive and well. Now maybe the idiots that keep saying that gay marriage is finding wide spread support due to their fake and biased polls even though everywhere it's come up for a vote it was turned down resoundingly will realize that perhaps gay marriage isn't as acceptable as some might delude themselves into thinking. At best gaydom tolerated, but I doubt it will ever be accepted as a normally functioning lifestyle choice.


    Tim-
    It shall be for sure. I don't think that what you saw here was 100% everyone against SSM, I do believe that because of government involvement and their threat of force against the free exercise of rights, that the response was exacerbated.

    I agree it's not acceptable. But it is also not to the level of them having actually acted on it. Politicians say stupid **** as much as Chick fil a owners do.

    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.
