...They were standing up for free speech and against political correctness. They were applauding with their purchase the courage shown by the owners of this restaurant. They did not back down in the face of forceful, even hateful, opposition from those who, while claiming to be tolerant have become so intolerant of those who do not agree with them.
...What occurred on August 1, 2012 ...holds great promise for the coming election. The real people of America, the salt of the earth, have had 'ENOUGH!" They came in in cars and on foot to Chick-Fil-A restaurants everywhere. The reports of the numbers across the Nation are astounding.
"Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" was not started by the owners of the restaurant chain. Mike Huckabee first mentioned it and then it took on a life of its own. It was propelled by real people who still believe that the values which informed the American experiment in ordered liberty are still the path to a future of freedom.
As I received my chicken I said to the smiling assistant at the window "Who would have ever thought this would happen". She responded with a smile "it gives me hope for America". Me too! If people will go to Chick-Fil-A to make this kind of statement, they will go to the voting booth on November 8, 2012. There, they can do something far more important.
They can cast their vote to affirm Life, defend Marriage, protect Freedom and promote the values which alone will ensure that America's greatest days are still ahead of us. Chick-fil-A Day reveals the way to a victory for Marriage, Life and Freedom on November 8, 2012. Maybe we should call Election day Freedom Appreciation Day and mobilize these same "salt of the earth" people to change history....

I expect the response from the Left to this will be more vile than usual.
Only a few hate-filled leftists crawled out from under their rocks to spew. Here is video of one such, who went to a CFA drive through, asked for free water, then berated the girl working at the window.
We consumers can control this economy and thus, this election. Other than our pledge to patronize Chick-Fil-A once a week, this household will not buy anything but essential food and fuel until November 7. There are relatively peaceful ways to thwart this Marxist regime at this point, and we all should participate in bringing it down.
This was truly a grass roots demonstration.
Compare what we witness yesterday with the countless “occupy” demonstration. Which group represents America?
The left control most media outlets, they attempt to shape the arguments with a known bias supporting one view point.
The “silent” majority are seldom consulted and even when they attempt to push back the left’s agenda (like in California through the proposition route) the left courts overturn their votes.
What we are living through today is nothing new in history.
Tyrants only respect one view point and they use the full force of the government to enforce that viewpoint, silencing any who oppose it.
What history shows is that force can silence oppositions but it is not the same as convincing others your view is the correct one.
Nation’s living under tyrants are under great pressure, eventually they explode.
One of the great things about how our founding fathers set up our constitution was the provision for making changes via amendments.
Amendment process is slow and difficult, and for a good reason. It takes a consensus of public opinion to change the constitution. However the left over the past 100 year in seeking their Utopia has short circuited that process via the courts.
Many major changes in our society have been made by the courts not by the proper process.
Hasn’t anyone ever wonder why after the Civil War it took a constitutional amendment to free the slaves? The legislatures nor the courts had the power.
Yet the courts today change at will long established boundaries within our nation regardless of what the will of the people really is.
This will eventually cause a revolt. First in the ballot box, but if the elections are rigged and the people’s vote nullified, then elsewhere.
I believe we are coming to the end game in the march to utopia. Regardless who wins, our nation will change when it is all said and done.
Obama Affirms His Support for Same Sex Marriage Obama didn't claim to approve of gay "marriage" between 1996 (where a much younger socialist bigot made that claim) and May of this year when he again claimed to support gay "marriage". To digress for a moment to another recent battle, the Tea Party was proud and thrilled three years ago, when we killed ObamaCare, and then we went back to our real lives, satisfied with our victory and secure in the knowledge that we could forget Washington DC - and then the far left forced ObamaCare through while we were unprepared. I wonder if the big government liberals provoked this Chik fight in order to give us the satisfaction of another victory. Are they hoping we'll go home happily and focus on the real world, so they can steal the election and keep control of the mechanisms of government? We have to make sure we stay focused through the election and beyond.
We went out about 8 p.m. to a CFA here in southern California (Walnut). The line reminded me of Disneyland - may have been 1.5 to 2 hours long. Plus there was a car line through the huge parking lot and out into the street. People were crossing the cross walks/ folks in cars were cheering. There were families, singles, old folks, young college students, and ALL races. It was definitely NOT just cranky white ‘clingers.’ There was a feeling of celebration, and it definitely made me think O could go down in November. This is California, after all. He might even lose California!!
Here's a pic from his UofA page:
His email address, if anyone is interested, is:
Hey, Adam, the interweb can really be a bitch if you're an a-hole.
Let’s call it a fine victorious battle in a larger war, and celebrate the rout.
It's way too early in the morning to be drinking. I live in Illinois and am a realist. Zero will carry both our states.
This girl deserves a medal. I would have tossed that free water in that faggot turds face.
What kind of fool would video tape himself making a damned fool of himself.
Let the name calling begin....
We should all respond with “Sticks and Stones”
They can call us whatever they want but I’ll put up my shield with the blood of Christ and proudly smile back at them. Freedom of speech will win at the end of the day.
“Yep. I expect their stores on college campuses to come under a virtual state of siege. And that they will start getting regular weekly health inspections in Democrat controlled counties, which they will all fail. And you may as well wave good-bye to the Chick-Fil-A Bowl in Atlanta. Buckle up, Mr. Cathy, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride. But we’re with you.”
POST OF THE DAY! Thanks Buckeye.
Should have dumped it in his lap.
Every young idiot who supports homosexualism and opposes Chick-Fil-A should have to spend a long night with homosexuals and experience a “forced rear entry” so they can form their judgement based on experience.
If she had done that, he would have sold his video to the nearest TV news outlet as fast as he could run to it. That’s the game these types are playing.
Adam Smith!? I wonder if he even sees the irony in his name?
Probably not. He’s an Adjunct Professor in a not particularly outstanding university, so he is probably unaware. (Or maybe he is trying to do this to get get points in the administration to be moved over to a tenure-track position.)
Well, I shouldn’t complain. If he is an “Adjunct Professor”, that’s still a couple of rungs above a “Senior Lecturer”, which is what Obama is supposed to have been.
