Mayor Ed Lee warns Chick-fil-A against coming to San Francisco
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 07/27/2012 | Paolo Lucchesi

Posted on 07/27/2012 11:02:34 AM PDT by nickcarraway

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee has joined in the growing chorus condemning Chick-fil-A for the national chicken chain’s much-publicized anti-gay views.

After mayors in Boston and Chicago recently expressed their disapproval with Chick-fil-A and its intolerance, Lee followed suit and took to his Twitter account late yesterday, firing off two successive tweets. The first one conveys his disappointment with the chain’s lack of values, and the second one takes it up a notch, suggesting that Chick-fil-A don’t even think about opening in San Francisco.

SNIP

Lee is referring to the Chick-fil-A in Fairfield. Closer locations are in the works, with planned locations in Walnut Creek and San Jose. Furthermore, the Press Democrat reports that the forthcoming Santa Rosa Chick-fil-A, which just got city approval in May, can expect plenty of opposition from the town:

People who disagree with Lee should stay out of SF totally. Spend their money someplace else.

San Francisco just got a new bishop. He is VERY PRO-family.

San Francisco may experience a bit of a quake with this one. ;-)

(Hmmmmm, what might he have to say to Nancy Pelosi?)

Now we see who the truly intolerant are - LIBERALS! They are the most bigoted people on the face of the earth.

Chick-fil-A in not anti-gay. They haven’t said ANYTHING that is anti-gay. They serve EVERYONE and do not discriminate against gay people in their hiring practices.

These bigoted, ant-christian mayors are the truly intolerant.

There was an article yesterday on the Internet that states basically no city, country, state or otherwise government official can keep Chick-Fil-A from opening restaurants in their immediate areas, AND IT CAME FROM THE ACLU OF ALL PEOPLE!

Chick-Fil-A has every Constitutional right to open a restaurant wherever they want, and if a government official tries to stop them then they are in violation of current federal laws and the 1st Amendment.

I'd like to see the mayors of Chicago, Boston and San Francisco try to stop them.

On another note, it seems very coincidental that each of the cities mentioned so far, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco, are three of the most evil and sexually immoral places to live on the entire planet. God's judgment will fall most severe on cities such as those.

“God’s judgment will fall most severe on cities such as those.”

A friend of mine and I were talking yesterday about this topic and she said that she wonders if the left isn’t agitating for a civil war? If so, I expect the people who know how to use guns will eventually prevail and then Ed Lee, Rahm Emmanuel, Tom Menino, and etc. will reap the proverbial whirlwind. I must say that I won’t shed a tear for any of those vermin when they’re finally marched off to a firing squad.

The Chick Fil A people should sue the socks off these city officials. Seriously, I think they have grounds for some kind of complaint.

No kidding. Maybe the mayor should focus on fixing the broken BART escalators that are clogged with feces from the homeless using them as toilets.

Gotta say I think this current issue is helping wake up the decent, middle-of-the-road folks to the democrat/liberal/sodomite agenda (used the singluar as it is all one agenda...).

Hearing people who are usually non-committal in political views connect this current intolerance aimed at Chick-fil-A to the current regime.

Farmers tried to grow chickens in San Francisco and it was a dismal commercial failure.

No matter what they did, the chickens were nothing but left wings and a-holes.

I think it prudent to warn everyone about going to San Francisco.

I wandered down the wrong street and got felt up by a transsexual hooker in broad daylight.

Something about a “tenderloin”?

Of course he doesn’t want Chick-fil-A in San Fran.

I wouldn’t set foot in San Fran Buttpoke without being in a full biohazard suit. But I really do not want to ever go there in this lifetime, anyway. Not while it’s infested the way it currently is.

Haven’t any of these a-holes read the 1st Amendment? A government can’t discriminate against a private business because of the political or religious views of its manager.

I think Ed Lee is trying to re-establish a bit of his “progressive” credentials after alienating people with his unrelenting pursuit of suspended Sheriff Ross Smirkirimi.

Maybe to serve 80-85 percent of the SF population that is heterosexual?

There is a lot wrong with SF, but it is still a nice place to visit. If you are looking for depravity you will certainly find it--especially at certain times of the year.

Lee’s pursuit of Mirkirimi was stupid. Not sure that it was either progressive or conservative, though. He should have let the process take it’s course. If anything, I think Lee’s efforts helped Mirkirimi.

Someone needs to buy these idiot political hacks a dictionary so they can find out the meaning of intolerance. Since all could be poster boys for the word it would seem a good idea!

I wouldn’t go to San Francisco on a bet. There isn’t enough money to entice me to go there. Hey mayor: Go to Hell! I’m sure you’ll get there anyway without my prayer. (Yes I petition God to send people to hell)

It’s very possibly a civil war could break out. Let’s face it; Obama has done a great job in creating so much class warfare that all it will take is just the right sort of crisis ignite it.

Who the hell wants to go to San Fran Sicko anyway?

Human excrement closes BART escalators

Published: 7/27 5:41 am

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Human excrement is gumming up the wheels and gears of some escalators servicing Bay Area Rapid Transit stations in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that BART station stairwells have become a common place for homeless people to sleep overnight or relieve themselves.

When crews pulled out a broken escalator at the Civic Center station last month, they found such a high volume of feces they called a hazardous materials team.

BART officials recently spoke with San Francisco authorities about how to clean up the 16th Street plaza, and spokesman Jim Allison says that conversation also could encompass the downtown stairwells.

In addition to creating unpleasant smells, officials say waste can close escalators for extended repairs and increase station cleaning costs. There are many other reasons why escalators break down.
