    Politics of Chicken Sandwiches

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Sunday expressed regret over eating at Chick-fil-A, because of the chicken company’s CEO’s personal views on gay marriage.

    Dorsey tweeted a screenshot from his phone that showed a purchase he had made at Chick-fil-A using a mobile application. After a liberal backlash, however, Dorsey apologized for eating at the popular fast food restaurant.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Why does everything have to be political? Does Chik-Fil-A discriminate against gay couples?
    Do they do anything to actually injure or hinder gays or gay couples?
    Is it so very bad that he THINKS something, that he must be punished for it?

    I kind of thought the whole premise of tolerance was, hey I don't like this or that, but you're free to believe whatever you want, so long as you don't bother me.
    The whole "your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins". As long as you're not swinging, I'm not swinging.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt

    And they won't let him lie in peace.
    Saying we are a country of "Immigrants" is an insult to our ancestors.

    You know - I've never been crazy about their food. To me, there's nothing remarkable about it.
    It isn't disgusting or greasy and it doesn't make me sick, but I normally wouldn't PICK them if I were driving down the road by myself.
    The kids of course, love their food.

    But - I appreciate the service, the friendliness - the fact that in a crowded Chik-Fil-A, I can actually have my order walked out to me.
    That as busy as it gets - I usually don't have to wait all that long, in a drive through or inside.

    Versus my last McDonald's trip, where we all got undercooked or nearly raw hamburgers - and while the manager fussed,
    it still took a good twenty minutes to FIX the order, because no one but the manager was on it - and she was just yelling at people.
    Ultimately, they got us a replacement order - after the non-burger members had FINISHED their meals - and gave us two
    little coupons for a free small fry. I mean, damn. I would have rather had an "I'm sorry".

    THAT to me is why Chik-Fil-A thrives.

    They have a spicy chix sand that I like, the service is always good and as a stand out of EVERY fast food dump out there... They have competent people and can actually get a three-item order correct.

    That's a feat that BK, MCD and TB regularly fail.
