  • The debate on Chick-fil-A's unofficial stance on same-sex marriage keeps getting ratcheted up by politicians and activists from both sides pandering to crowds. While seemingly only a minor event a week ago, the large crowds gathering inside and outside of the chain's restaurants day after day has caught the eyes of at least a few restaurant analysts wondering if the flareup could affect U.S. sales at rivals MCD, WEN, and BKW[View news story]
    So setting all the smoke aside,

    A company owner said he was for traditional marriage, and to be fair, implied he disapproved of non-traditional marriage i.e. gay marriage. He broke no laws, he does not discriminate in hiring nor does he discriminate among his customers.

    He just expressed an opinion.

    The Gay Movement, in contrast, launched personal attacks on him, his company and his staff (perhaps slanderous and libelous) launching a boycott of his business.

    They are attempting to harm.

    So who looks more Un-American? Some guy who expressed an opinion on a moral issue or a bunch of people who are demanding something be done to punish him for his speech?

    I don't go to Chick whatever, in fact I don't know where one is. But I'm going to find out and go eat a sandwich there and push my way past every boycotting gay that is metophorically reverse bashing.

  • McDonald's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    In Dons opening comments he said "on course to build over 13,000 new restaurants this year" I didn't hear the call but perhaps it's a transcription error as 1,300 seems to be more realistic.
