    Oh so wait the job of the USSC isnt to interpret the Constitution? I also forgot if they rule something that goes against your view then they are "agenda driven"... Give me a break.

    No, I will not. You expressed that that there is some constitutional right to marriage.

    There is. As proved and decided on by the Supreme Court. That is the Supreme Courts job.

    I do not agree with Chik-fil-A's stance on gays, but I do respect them having the backbone to stand up and say what they believe in. I don't eat there very often, but not over the gay issue. I just think their food is only of slightly average quality. As far as fast food goes, Wendy's does a much tastier chicken sandwich, IMO.



    Actually, I meant 'orgasmic'. That was intended.

    I know many people, primarily women for whatever that's worth, that constantly gush about how great CfA's food is... to the point that it has become a private joke of mine that they think it is 'orgasmic'.

    I thought you meant to type organic...I like your definition better! Sounds wicked....

    Greetings, radcen.

    Debating the pros & cons of gay marriage? Really?

    Hint: There are other already-established threads for that topic.
    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.

    Re: Do you boycott particular businesses?

    I once boycotted over certain issues....not anymore. However If I find some company worthy of my support whether it be social or political, I've been known to give them my business. I also use to be one of those who was concerned over giving out my name address and telephone number to obtain a shopper's card, forget that one. heck the NSA is collecting more on me than my name address and telephone number. And if the grocery marketing is interested in what I buy, go for it. Because what they will find is for me it is all about good value for the least amount of cost, a coupon user that hardly ever pays full price for anything. And I deal in cash only. Those grocery chains that I have a shopper's card to send me a slew of coupons for free stuff that I actually use. Between cutting coupons and the in store savings, planning meals around what is on sale that week, makes for room in the budget for a lot more fun tickets.

    It's not a loss when they are still making a profit.

    Look up what "P&L" stands for.

    Class dismissed.
