Jul 30, 2012 Full story: 760 WJR 174

Chick-fil-A has worn out its welcome with the mayors of Boston, San Francisco and Chicago, but some Texas politicians are more than ready to welcome the controversial restaurant chain with their Southern hospitality.

I don't remember reading about the US founding fathers preaching hatred or promoting second-class status for fellow citizens.

Go back to school !

I remember reading about the US founding fathers preaching hatred or promoting second-class status for fellow citizens. They called it "slavery", "indentured servitude" "owning at least 40 acres of land before you are allowed to vote" and "those people that were here for thousands of years before us and sailed all the way from India to get here" !

I keep forgetting -- you are right, the US still has slavery of all non-whites, and only people who own 40 acres of land or more are allowed to vote, and the native people who were here before Europeans came along were really from India (they just didn't know it I guess.) American traditions must always be kept intact!

You stated something COMPLETELY INACCUARTE about the Founding Fathers. I was pointing that out. Still want to stick by what you said in that post ?

I consider white middle class and poor being the slaves for decades cus they were paying the bulk of the taxes to build such an empire. As one that has Cherokee blood I find your other remark simply idiotic.
For some reason you come across as an anchor baby to me.
Actually, it is the welathy that, by far, pay the bulk of the taxes in the US. When income taxes first started early in the last century, it was ONLY the wealthy that paid them...

It caused me amusement when Mayor Lee of San Francisco said no Chick Fil A here because of the Chairman's personal beliefs. Lee, a Chinese- American seems to have developed a taste for exclusion.
.
By extension, I would assume Mayor Lee wants no Orthodox Jews, Conservative Muslims or Black Baptists in San Francisco either.
.
Upsets the naked men there?

How many times have I heard the phrase, "I might not agree with what they said, but I'll defend their right to say it." Guess that is only rhetoric with the democratic politicians.

Why did Rahm stay with Obama when Obama stated that as his belief? Democrats are such hypocrites.

Um, I already knew that thank you. What about the ever expensive property taxes that get handed down as rent.
Haven't you heard, I support the abolishment of the tax code and federal reserve. Govt must be shrunk, significantly.
You're saying that poor people and middle class people pay more in property taxes for a two bedroom apartment than wealthy people pay for their McMansions

Sure,lets get rid of our central monetary policy board. Look how good that has worked for the EU...

Olympic athletes are being kicked out because of racist comments they twitted (yeah, twitted) which just shows that people are being held responsible for their comments. Cathy is free to spout his bigotry and will have to take the lumps for his bigotry disguised as "Christianity." I and millions of others will eat elsewhere.

Those with the McMansions can absorb the pain don't ya think? Read the book, End The Fed and understand why we should end the fed.
We weren't talking about the balance of their checking account after paying more than their fair share, we were talking about who pays the taxes in the US.

I prefer to look at real world examples, such as the EU, which set up a common currency with not central monetary policy board, as you suggest the US should do. Read the papers, not some book from the fiction section of the library.

Your right. So I, like you, wonder were it all went wrong. What started gays on there road to hate and villainy towards anyone who disagreed with them. I truly feel sorry for the gay, lesbian and transgender community. To live life so full of hate it's unreal. I thank my God that conservatives are not so full of hate.

A. Your right in that they are indeed closed on Sunday

B. your wrong. They do hav, in my opinion the best chicken sandwich from a fast food restaurant. But then you probably only eat McDonald's chicken.

Maybe Pattysboi can look into Lilleth's remark last week about killing my children. I didn't think so, on the reservation with you. Leave the kids behind with us.

I'm amazed at how so many people have missed the real issue as to why idiot Dan Cathy has been under fire for what is said to be his "personal belief".

The reason Dan Cathy is being denied permits to open new stores in these cities goes beyond "personal belief". Dan Cathy has been giving money to organizations to keep LGBT citizens from enjoying all the same liberty and justice as every other citizen. This "personal belief" is according to their religion.

In the U.S. religion has no authority and the constitution is clear that no law shall be made that will establish religion as a law. The U.S. Supreme court has ruled several times that making any law against any citizen that furthers religion is unconstitutional.

There is no such thing as "god's law".

That is by far the most intelligent post so far on thia thread. However, I have seen no proof that the company has discriminated in its' business practices. Giving money, so far as I know, is not a punishibloe offense under the law. Therefore, politicians should not be using their power to keep a business from expanding. I have seen a case where they are being sued for gender discrimination, but I don't believe it has gone to trial yet. And closing down a business does not correct the situation. It only causes unemployment. The best thing to remedy that is to make them pay dollars for it. Being gay, I would never patronize such a business, but I do't believe closing them down or refusing permits is the answer.

The only standard Cathy has to meet is zoning laws. Whether the Mayors like his views or not is immaterial.

Okay, I agree with most of that. But what does that have to do with the tens of thousands of employees and franchise owners that own the company. Should they all just go walk off their job and get on unemployment?
