Chick’fil A is a hot button topic today, oh yes indeedy it is. Why? Why is a fast food restaurant newsworthy? Chick’fil A doesn’t support gay marriage. And? Isn’t it the owner’s right to not support gay marriage? You don’t like their political stance? Don’t buy their food. Don’t support it with your dollars. No, that’s too hard for people to wrap their noggins around, so instead they intend to rally against a business. They want to affect their profits and how that directly affects the economy. Yep, that’s the American Way!
What these idiots don’t seem to understand, is that every American citizen has a right to own a business, and support or not support what they so please. Take for instance a pharmacy that refuses to carry birth control. The pharmacy owner may be against it as a means to promote promiscuity, or unwanted pregnancies. And? He has that right! You don’t like it? Go to another pharmacy that does carry it! You aren’t entitled to jack shit. This is an American value, freedom of choice! You have choices, and if you don’t like the choices made for you by people in power, then make your own choices!
So an anti-rally is set up to protest the Chick’fil A political agenda. ”Kiss more chicks”. Gays are called to arms to show up in the restaurant and kiss each other. Why? What does this solve? What does this do? It sends a resoundingly clear message to the patrons, and staff: We are gay! So what? Why do people insist on parading their love lives around like some sort of personal accomplishment?
I’d find it more accomplished to target the legislation that does not allow for civil unions and same sex marriage. Those that do not support it seem to be using their profits to lobby, so what stops you from lobbying for it? What stops you from supporting lobbyists that are beating the pavement to ensure that American citizens have equal rights and privledge? I understand. It’s better to make a fool of yourself and take liberties and profits away from a chain of chicken peddlers. It’s so goddamned American it makes me hurl.
Americans march into voting polls and believe they are making a difference. Psh, that’s the delusion of choice. Real choices and real voting occurs with every dollar you spend. Every dollar is a vote! If you don’t research the political agendas of the corporations you are supporting, how in the holy hell can you have a leg to stand on and bitch in the first place? I understand. It’s easier to buy things you need with no care or concern, its about competitive prices and trendy goods. It’s not really about the corporations agendas, right? WRONG.
Shop smarter America! Do your friggin’ homework, and give it a rest!
Kissing your partner in Chick’fil A is ‘headline worthy’ and not much else. Do you really think its going to change the agenda of Chick’fil A? If you believe that, you are delusional.
