It's a case of social networking, same-sex marriage, and chicken.
As Chick-Fil-A makes its move into the Bay Area, some local residents unhappy with the company's stance on gay marriage are raising money to fight back. And they're using a Silicon Valley startup's technology to help.
A group of Mountain View residents and employees led by Robert Neivert went online to raise a quick $1,000. That's how much they need to file paperwork opposing the city's plan to let a Chick-Fil-A in. To do it quickly, they went on WePay, which lets you raise money, with a little social networking on the side.
And it worked: The money was raised in a matter of hours. The paperwork will be filed, and technology gets the assist. As Neivert says, "in the old says, you'd have to go to meetings and call friends." Says WePay co-founder Rich Aberman, "It's always nice to see campaigns resonate. People here, including me, sympathize with that campaign."
WePay positions itself as a faster, more convenient choice to Paypal. Now, its technology is giving a boost to the fight for same-sex marriage.
Till now i had never heard of it.
Since Ebay owns paypal they won’t let wepay in to the game on ebay..
Thus.. it won’t last long.
It’s never enough to just not go to the place.
With Justice Roberts now flipped, the first amendment is gone. I love Chick- Fil_A. But is will be banned to support decadent homosexual perverts. The end is near.
I don't know when it happened, but I am now a racist, homophobic, bigoted nativist and proud of it.
What has CFA actually done against any gay person?
We’d better start fighting the left and not just observing what kooks they are.
Funny. We have a Chick Fil A, right in the middle of liberal, faggot friendly Hollywood, CA 2 blocks away from the Kodak theater. Another 2 blocks is GLAAD of Hollywood.
It’s ALWAYS full and causes traffic in the side streets. Another 2 blocks is In N Out burger, also a Christian owned private burger house. The homos probably don’t care as it’s popular here but that could change..
It never is.
If a conservative doesnt like guns, he doesnt buy one. If a liberal doesnt like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn`t eat meat. If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.
If a conservative doesnt like a talk show host, he switches channels. Liberals demand that those they dont like be shut down.
If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesnt go to church. A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.(Unless its a foreign religion, of course!)
If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.
I was wrong. I thought there was not a store in Minnesota.. But there is....
One is located in the union building of the U of M (after this.. it probably won’t be there long) and the other...
The airport.. right in the heart of terminal 2...
So.. I can try my luck with the flaming libs at the U of M who are likely staking the place out with 24 hour protests or.. I can subject my self to the TSA and would likely have to buy a ticket to somewhere to get in..
I really want to support them.. but given where they are.. well.. how?

I prefer to use “rational person” and “irrational person”; covers things better.

WePay or Chick-Fil-A?
There must be ways to “WePay”-fund conservative pushback.
Sounds like a tactic that could backfire on the ‘rat filth.
If good Americans now stand up and support Chick-fil-a - not only by eating there - but by counter demos and signs and petitions to the city ‘powers that be’ - remind them that this is America and people still have a right to their personal beliefs.
This may be the ‘bell wether’ incident that we can turn around this too long blackmailing of businesses to bend to the demands of the dark side. Jesse Jackson led the way for years. And who fought back for those businesses? NO ONE.
Chick-fil-a has the backbone to stand up to the demands and blackmail. Will We the People stand up with them - or sit back and expect them to fight this all by themselves?
If we don’t stand with them - WE ARE JUST AS GUILTY AS THOSE ON THE OHTER SIDE - sins of omission.
This is NOT just a fight for Chik-fil-a, this is a fight for America’s soul.
but by counter demos and signs and petitions to the city powers that be
People who go to counter demos and sign petitions will lose their jobs. there is no cohesive conservative force to protect people. Leftists are cohesive and will attack, singleing out high profile people who do not fall into line with leftist rhetoric.
I thought that company sounded familiar. The founder was so desperate for a date he made a fool of himself (as they all do) hiring the Queen of Fools on Millionaire Matchmaker.
Unless Nick is delusional, which he obviously isn’t, I am sure he meant wepay. CFA is going nowhere but up.
I am lucky enough to live one mile from a CFA. That restaurant is legendary in Atlanta, and has been for decades (Google the Dwarf House).
I am also about a mile from a McD. Although its food is priced about 50% less than CFA’s, CFA’s food is about ten times better (actually in a different league altogether).
I get a chicken sandwich or chicken salad, and a milkshake at CFA at least once week.
I am a very lucky person.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting their debut here and have been getting out the word to my friends to support them.
