    Wife and I had lunch there today.

    Unreal.......line was 100 feet out the door, Drive-thru was 2 wide and over a block long.

    Heard Romney's name mentioned in a positive way and Obama's name in a negative way several times.

    If this is any indication of the election.....Romney Wins.

    Unbelievable: We managed to take up 8 pages based on where to eat based on who is ****ing who.
    This country is going straight down the crapper. Your children's futures is being sold on a global market. But by all means concentrate on who is ****ing who. that's going to help them a lot when they can't afford to feed their children.
    because society is collapsing all around us.
    We've already lost the mother/father/children unit that lasted for hundreds of thousands of years. Now single moms call to the government to raise the children.
    Poor make up over 50% of the population and expect the top 2% to pay even more so they can keep procreating.
    We are allowing illgals in an and supporting And educating them vs our own citizens.
    Now we will fine/tax people if they choose to not participate in the insurance system vs making halthcare affordable by fixing the legal system and regulation .
    All of those and more lead to the US losing the long standing status as the largest economy.
    So it deserves a thousand pages to save the society before we become just a series of lines on a .so around 300M people without common interests which happens to be what a society is. At the same time we are allowing Islam societieas to flourish and have a leader helping make it happen..... Egypt, lybia, Iraq, Syria are all moving toward the extreme with US HELP.

    Not buying it. The people who run this country.( big business/law/media) know exactly what buttons to push in this society. They always know when to push the sex button. It's a smoke screen. while one hand is pushing that button the other hand is finding a new way to sell this country off to the highest bidder.

    Yeah they love drama like this because it takes the sting out of stuff like say,... when the govt supplies weapons to the mexican cartels and the same weapons are used to kill US law enforcement all because someone thought it would help eliminate the 2nd admendment. Politicans love spotlight changers. Eric Holder will fade away without facing any consequences.

    I just called all the Chick Fil A's in Florida. Almost all of them have little to no business. Prove me wrong.

    I don't care who you are, that right there is funny!

    They got our business around 7am this morning. My secratary said it looked like a normal day when she was there. $50 buys alot of sandwiches, tater tots, and waffle fries. And yes they sell waffle fries for breakfast.

    If you think this guys comments are going to sink his business your very wrong. Most people dont care about stuff like this. They want either good products or cheap products. Chick-fil-a has a pretty good market share of loyal customers. This wont faze those customers. Walmarts CEO in 2009 was all over the news for signing and supporting anti-gay petitions. There was all types of boycotts and crap. That didnt even put a dent in Walmarts business. The shareholders werent happy about it at the time but everyone eventually moved on. Just this year he got re-elected into his position by a 90% vote.

    Now that's something that will really hit them where it counts.

    Exactly, a normal day. Nothing changed from yesterday.

    Plan Failed.

    what plan? Chic-Fil-A didn't start the support day, or are you speaking of the gay plan?

    Regardless of his beliefs, if you are running short on time and faced with a choice between Chic Fil A and the McDonalds next door the choice seems like a pretty simple one to me.

    McDonalds is bad. Sooooo very bad....

    Sorry. Let me try again. I'm certain that before purchasing a franchise the buyer would understand his financial obligations. That being said, I'm sure he is happy with the increase in business.

    It certainly would be interesting if they forced him out and therefore denied him the same rights they are enjoying....

    I would venture to say it is a privilege to work for the company. Not a right.

    That's why you lefties are so confused. The word "right" is an enigma to you. The way you can't comprehend that the "right" to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, has nothing to do with hunting or muskets, or something that can be infringed upon to the point of irrelevency.

    Just like enjoying the "right" to work for a private company. Is that one of the "inalienable" rights, granted to us by God, that the Founding Fathers codified into the Constitution?
