Full title: Several national figures are calling Wednesday “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day,” while other groups plan a "kiss-in" to protest the fast food chain over the CEO’s stance against gay marriage. Do you plan to support or protest the chicken chain? I’m supporting Chick-Fil-A. I’m boycotting Chick-Fil-A. Politics does not play a role in my lunch.

Since I live in an area that does not have a Chick-Fil-A (not within several hundred miles) I really cannot do anything in support.

I’m in Australia and I used the locator from the company to find a CFLa here and the weird thing is when I put in Australia it goes to LA. Go figger.

This one is eminently FReepable.

I ate breakfast at one in Tucson, AZ today and the crowd was large (as in lots of people, not tonnage per customer), friendly, and polite.

By the time I left there were about 20 people in line and it was about an hour before the lunch rush.

It’s up to 68.8 supporting now.

A few minutes ago, there were still 16% that said they didn’t care about politics.

Talk about the living dead...

I was at the one in Hollywood this afternoon, and it was packed with five cars in each of two drive through lines going back into the street.

The seats were all full, and the window lines were five to ten deep.

Heh heh heh...

I was off yesterday - Breakfast, lunch & dinner.
Today - dinner - couldn’t get in the parking lot - at least 50 cars in line... We parked in nearby lot and walked in. MANY folks in line. Oh - Forney, TX! 105 degrees in the shade!

They ran out of buns and had to buy from the near-by store...trickle down economics.

Some TeaParty folks showed up with flags and signs and were asked to put them away. They objected a little before leaving - the nice lady pointed out that CFA already had a US flag flying. All behaved well. (They still came in to buy!)

By the way folks. ABC World News just covered this and did a pretty even handed job of it. They made it crystal clear that CFAs across the nation were being swamped with business today. They showed customers having a great time. It was a hoot to watch.

It has been suggested on this board that those of us who don’t live near a Chick-Fil-A consider buying merchandise from their website.

And yet you just did. Now the local libtard TV broadcasters can't say "85% of our viewers voted to support the anti-Chick-fil-a protesters."

Thank you for your support,

Me

BWian Wiyams covered it to. People lined up in big numbers to support a fast food chain under pressure.

A food store was shown with shoulder to shoulder people inside.

Also covered mayors who are wetting themselves at the prospect of crossing the LGBT angsters...

I will be visiting my local New York City Chick Fil-A soon, wearing my flag shirt and proudly lampooning any protesters I see near the store! “How’s that sodomy working out for you, big boy?” Lol

"while other groups plan a "kiss-in" to protest the fast food chain over the CEO’s stance against gay marriage. "

Why doesn't some rich gay entrepreneur open his own sandwich chain? He can call it "Chuck-Fillet".
