That Chick-fil-A boycott is really working out well. People all over are flocking to Chick-fil-A to say flock you to the boycotters. The boycott? Fail!

My home town Chik Fil A is a mad house with police having to direct all the traffic that has been coming in all day. My wife is there now picking up a meal.

I’ve been traveling down I-75 in Florida and my own informal survey of the CFAs along the way concludes that every one of them was packed. I ate at one at 3:00 and it was pretty mobbed even at that off-peak hour. The Number 4 was, of course, awesome.

Mmmmm. Chick-fil-A. Tasty.

I don’t give a rat’s ass about their opinions — it *is* a free country, after all.

Excellent. In general, I am sympathetic to the idea of gay marriage but I detest fascism. And personally, I don’t think this BS storm is about civil rights at all – nobody is condemning the Muslims or the black Christian pastors who oppose gay marriage – so I think this is really political street theatre, a means for the scumbag Democrats to get their base charged up and get them to come out and vote for the Great Half-White Dope in November. It stinks. Long live Chik-fil-A.

Right there with you. Not only am I sympathetic, I believe that support of same-sex marriage should fall under the conservative banner as it is an expression of societal freedom, which I believe to be a conservative tenent. I understand that there are people who do object to it, and I understand why they do.

I guarantee that the outpouring we are seeing here is not comprised solely of people who oppose same-sex marriage. These are people opposed to government telling people what they can and cannot believe.

I could care less if gay’s want to get married. What pisses me off is the one-sided BS. Freedom of speech applies to all, whether you like what they’re saying or not. Somehow most of the left either doesn’t get it or they don’t want to get it.

B-o-t-A I am of the thinking, that there are a certain class of people who are looking for a reason to be offended. This just smells of the Trevon Martin thing. Martin’s a nasty late teens guy who beat the hell out of a Hispanic. The Hispanic came back with a gun and nailed him. Is that something Zimmernam should have done? I don’t know. BUT I do know it did not warrant the firestorm we got, at the hands of the liberal media and the lies, spins, and deliberate mis-information.
Remember a few months back when Arby’s decided they didn’t like Conservatives? What did we do? We voted with our wallets and we don’t go to Arby’s anymore. Why is than any different that people who back gay marriage, just not going to CFA?
After the crowds we saw at CFA today, I doubt the gays are going to do their “kiss-o-rama” or whatever it is on Friday.
At our local CFA my family got there at a little after 5:PM. The mall had to close multiple access roads into and out of the mall, because of the line at the drive through! We waited a solid hour to order, and when we left, the line was even longer!
“I justa sayin’, but I think the Conservatives are PISST!!”

I just went by the one nearest my house, at 7:300 PM. I did not want to stand in that long of a line in 100 degree weather. On the way over, I was listening to some guys on one of the local repeaters. I’m a ham, so I have a license to talk on that. One of them was on his way home from work. He came to a place where traffic halted. When he mentioned this, the other guy asked if there was a Chik Fil A there. I almost wrecked, I was laughing so hard.

I went by the Chik-Fil-A in the mall, about 4:00 PM local time. The guy taking my order said the one on Pipeline did over $30,000 in sales yesterday. This is the one I was going to. It’s only about 2 or 3 blocks from the mall. The one inside the mall did better than a normal Saturday. I chose the mall so I could park in the shade, and it would not be 200 degrees inside my pickup.

While I was eating I noticed the Chik-Fil-A was doing a steady business. The lines were not long, but there was always someone in line. The other places in the food court were almost dead. This was before the supper crowd would get there, so that is not unusual. I may not be the only one who does not like crowds.

Unfortunately there’s no Chick-fil-A here in the Milwaukee metro area for me to patronize. But my hat is off to everyone who made this day a roaring success.

Sorry Rahm, there are still Americans who believe in free speech and will not be intimidated by you or any other political thug. You showed us the “Chicago way”, we showed you the American way.

My nephew and I went to the mall for lunch today, it’s the only Chick-Fil-A in my area. The food court was packed, the line at CFA was at least 30 deep at each of the 3 stations.
We gave up waiting because we had too much to do, I will go back tomorrow.

Just a quick note to the Washington Post, NYT, Newsweek and Time … you know what they call patrons of Chick-Fil-A?

Customers.

You may want to smarten up a bit before you go out of business. Having a stand is one thing … being around to espouse it is another. May I humbly suggest that you treat conservatives (i.e. customers!) better.

Just a thought.

There are multiple issues here:

1st Amendment allows for Freedom of Belief and Speech and Religion, etc. Do I care if the same sex marriages are allowed in NY? No, I do not. Will GA support it? No, my State will not, thankfully.

Same goes for abortion, which I absolutely do not support. Its murder.

If NJ wants to allow partial birth abortions up to the third trimester can they do it? Yes they can; they will suffer the consequences, of course, but that’s the state’s choice. You don’t like it, move to GA because we will ultimately not allow it except under the most extreme conditions: Rape and Incest.

Ronald Reagan, who I personally met in 1988, said you can vote with your feet. You don’t like GA laws or NJ laws, them move to where your beliefs are juxtaposed with you nextdoor neighbor.

Now, with the militarization of local police depts, UN Agenda 21 (sustainable developement) and other Federalized cancers upon state and local governments we are not afforded many choices. You know what I mean by that .

Get armed and ready and grow your local armies. It will be ‘go time’ soon.

I am not surgar coating this bullshit anymore. Wake the F_ _ _ Up!.

Local talk radio host JD Wells had a great idea. He said that if you go there tomorrow and see someone kissing…turn your back and give them some privacy.

I cannot think of anything they would hate more than being ignored.

Water toss might arouse their litigious nature, but then anything might do that, I suppose. Hey, at least it ain’t like the moslems do it, since they’d toss acid in their faces, then they’d hang em or throw them into a well stoked fire.

Let them protest and kiss, it’s their free speech right. If we complain about that after their problem with the owner of CFA’s statment about marriage then we’re no better than they are.

I went Tuesday, expecting that the lines would be rather long Wednesday.

Yesterday afternoon, I did a search for CFA line. It was crazy, all over the country, with news outlets showing pictures, video. I felt really good about it. Can you say,….backfired?

Of course, in the comments section for the Phoenix paper, which showed an aerial view of the building, with a line going across the parking lot, there was an idiot liberal stating that it was obviously staged.
“They had to have bussed these people in from somewhere, you can see that there are empty parking spaces right near the door.”

Of course, a liberal wouldn’t have been smart enough to see that the spaces near the door were not accessible, because of the line of cars in the drive-thru, snaking out onto the street.

Yeah, they bussed in hundreds of people, rotating them through all day, in hundred degree-plus heat, at CFAs all over the country. Right. Now, if it were a liberal cause, I might believe that. They do things like that.

In n Out has had the scripture on the bottom of their cups since I was a little kid. That was a LONG time ago, when I was a regular customer at the original shop in Baldwin Park, CA. It’s a family owned business, and super high quality in both the food and the people who work there. When I left the West Coast for a while, I couldn’t wait to get back to In n Out.
