Chick-Fil-A values (its Christian principles lacerated by Democrat bullies)
NY POST ^ | 1/30/14 | NY POST EDITORIAL BOARD

Posted on 01/31/2014 3:29:01 AM PST by Liz

Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy runs his business based “on Biblical values.”....Christian values liberals pounced on b/c Cathy contradicted 2008 Obama.....that marriage was between a man and a woman.....

Lock-stepping liberals lacerated Mr Cathy---Chicago's Rahm Emanuel declared “Chick-Fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.” Boston Mayor Thomas Menino vowed to block them coming to Beantown. NYC's then-City Council speaker, Christine Quinn, a lesbian, demanded the NY store be sent packing.

Recent news reports say Chick-Fil-A staffers trudged in the ice and snow to distribute piping hot chicken sandwiches and waffle fries to stranded motorists along the interstate and provided a place to sleep in the restaurant. The next morning, workers prepared luscious fresh chicken biscuits — served free to overnight guests.

What they did was awesome. I’m not that old, but I do remember once upon a time that in an emergency *every* business would pitch in to help.

"Tolerant and compassionate" liberal, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino vowed to block Chick-Fil-A from coming to his town.

HERE HE IS----BOSTON MAYOR MENINO (hands down, the dumbest mayor in the US). Menino was never so stupid as when he was sucking up to the Islamics.

"Just call me Mayor Stupid."

WAIT FOR IT---here's yet another stupid remark from Menino, and I quote.....the Boston bomber brothers "acted alone" says Menino.

STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES Boston Mayor Menino should be rigorously scrutinized ---- possibly charged with aiding and abetting terror against Americans. Menino handed Islamics a $2 million piece of land for a mere $170,000 to build the Boston Mosque....where the bombers worshipped.

==============================================

MENINO'S MOSQUE
The Phoenix | November 24, 2008 | David S. Bernstein / FR Posted by Prospero

EDITED/EXCERPT Most Boston locals concede that getting anything of substance accomplished in Boston is a Herculean task. Residents have all but embraced the principle of civic inaction with a perverse kind of local pride. In the end, "who you know" is probably more important than what you are trying to do.

STRONGARM MAYOR And there is no doubt that little is accomplished without the approval and support of the mayor, Thomas M. Menino.

So it is with the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) near the intersection of Tremont Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard. Better known as the Roxbury mosque, the ISBCC has been in the works for more than 20 years. A few weeks ago it finally opened its doors for prayer — five years late, millions over budget, and still far from complete.

While the story of the building of the Roxbury mosque may not be worthy of a Hollywood epic, it does contain the stuff of a good television drama: (with Mayor Menino aiding and abetting) community intrigue, religious conflict, media controversy, foreign money, suspicions of extremist ties......and once-cocksure public officials, who (like Menino and then-Sen Kerry who once gave Islamics serial BJ's) have since retreated into a zone of silence.

=====================================================

Bombers worshipped at Islamic Society of Boston's mosque.---built w/ strongarm sap-happy Menino's govt authority.

Kerry's "credentials," presented to Ohaha when the Secy of State job became available.

===================================

ISLAMIC STRANGLEHOLD ON BOSTON Pretty soon they'll start whining about building a mosque close to the Boston Marathon finish line b/c Islam is all about "triumphalism" (thus the plans to build a mosque near the WTC).

And you can bet they'll get lotsa help from Obomba, Boston Mayor Menino, Secy of State Kerry, and Gov Deval Patrick (who obstructed govt dissemination of the Tsarnaev's welfare $$haul). Read on.

A devout Muslim, Boston Bomber Tamarlan played, prayed, sold/smoked a joint, slit a few throats, blew up a kid, chewed up a few Bostonians' legs, beat up his girlfriend, high-fived his friends, had money to burn, drove a luxury US car, rode the US gravy train under several identities (see Tam's reading list on Amazon that spotlight his penchant for multiple identities).

No less a sophisticate than Esquire Mag named Chick-fil-a one of the nation's best sandwiches.

ESQUIRE REVIEW You can get a chicken sandwich anywhere, which may explain your low expectations. Boneless breast. Bun. Blah. But down south, there lives an eye-opener.

A come-to-Jesus sandwich. The Chick-fil-A. Seasoned, breaded breast served on a toasted buttered bun with dill- pickle slices. No mayo. No sauce at all. Deceptively simple, yet transcendent. The hook is the breading: spicy, with an intoxicating crunch.

The meat is always juicy, never chewy. The bun is like lingerie -- there, but not, providing delicious support without obscuring the main flavor. The first bite changes everything you think you know about chicken. And about the need for condiments. -- Allison Glock

Here's your deluxe Chick-Filet-a sandwich:
w/ frilly lettuce leaf, vine-ripened tomato slices
cheese slice; add a side of hot, crisp waffle fries and
large iced lemonade, couple containers of CFA's luscious
"special sauce" and you got lunch.

REMEMBER WHEN? Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel gracefully plied into the gay controversy created after Alderman Proco Joe Moreno (1st ward) publicly announced his opposition to Chick-Fil-A opening in his ward.

Mayor Rham chuckled while doing a graceful plie: "It's easy to do business in Chicago when you know 'the rules.' Chick-Fil-A can open in our town as long as it adopts 'Chicago Values.' "

(1) weekly cash pay off to the alderman;

(2) hire six of the alderman's friends who work only random days of the month,

(3) BIG AL from the Mayor's office picks up all cash in brown paper bags at CFA's back door,

(4) Chick Fil A staff trained by Chicago PD to shoot 10-12 customers per month,

(5) Any CFA customers actually killed must be registered to vote as Democrats at the autopsies,

(6) $100,00 campaign contribution to Obama,

(7) free food to Jesse Jackson, Jr, who was supposedly "convalescing," before sentencing, b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat.

ADDENDUM Let's not underestimate the actions of the Massachusetts morons----Boston Mayor Menino, then-Sen John Kerry (now Secy of State), and Gov Deval Patrick---using govt authority and tax dollars to facilitate the Boston Bombing.

(a) Early reports indicate Mayor Menino used strongarm tactics---and govt authority---to circumvent laws to aid and abet builders of the the Boston mosque the bombers attended.

(b) then-Sen Kerry used govt authority to memorialize the mosque in the US Congress.

(c) Massachusetts Gov Deval Patrick refused to divulge info WRT public assistance to the Tsarnaev's (in collusion w/ Obomba?).

But state welfare officials were forced to b/c the info is available to lawmakers. State Rep David Linsky called on the Mass Dept of Transitional Assistance to provide the info..... issuing an ultimatum, giving them 24 hours to provide the info.

The Boston Herald published the state's response: 'My office is working to fully comply with your request,' DTA interim commissioner Stacey Monahan wrote, saying they were only providing a summary 'given the great interest in this matter.'

Chechen immigrants Tsarnaev parents were eligible as legal, non-citizen residents who claimed "asylum" status and met the eligibility criteria for DTA, DTA interim commissioner Stacey Monahan said in a letter to David Linsky, Chairman of the Mass House Post Audit and Oversight Committee.

On orders of Mass Gov Patrick, multiple state agencies refused to comment on the bombing brothers' tax-paid benefits.

<><> WRT Tamerlan receiving UI benefits, Labor dept spokesman Kevin Franck refused to comment....

<><> Univ of Mass-- Dartmouth spokesman Robert Connolly refused to comment on the financial aid app of 19 -year-old soph Dzhokhar. 'It is our position - and I believe the accepted position in higher education - that student records including academic records and financial records (including financial aid) cannot under federal law be released without a student’s consent.'

<><> The FCC would not discuss whether the suspected bombers had govt-paid cellphones.

<><> Cambridge housing officials would not comment on if the brothers had Section 8 rental subsidy offered by the HUD to low income households.

<><> claiming "ASYLUM" generates hefty monthly SS checks collected ad infinitum.

==================================================

UPDATE Benefits for entire family of bombing suspects likely exceeded $100k
WCRB ^ | 4/29/2013 | By Janet Wu / FR Posted by Alistair Stratford IV

BOSTON — State lawmakers have launched an investigation into whether the suspects in the Boston bombings improperly received public benefits. The House Committee on Post Audit and Oversight is reviewing hundreds of documents collected from state agencies that may have provided benefits to the suspects or their families since 2002.

Sources who have seen the 500 pages of documents sent to the House Committee on Post Audit and Oversight told News Center 5 that the entire Tsarnaev family, including (1) the two bombing suspects' parents, (2) the two suspects themselves, (3) their sisters, (4) the widow of the suspect killed, and, (5) their child -- received "every conceivable public benefit available out there."

===================================================

$100K is the tip of the iceberg----the America-hating Tsarnaev's collected bigtime----rode the US gravy train using several identites. The bomber brothers' lavish style could not have been financed merely w/ welfare checks, food stamps, housing subsidies, etc etc etc.

A look at dead bomber Tamerlan's reading list on Amazon shows he researched several books WRT forging new identities (each identity pocketing US govt freebies).

I'm gonna repeat something I said a couple days ago:

I had the privilege of performing at Chick-Fil-A headquarters in Atlanta in the mid-'80s. They fed us and gave us t-shirts. So I've been a fan for a while. They're finally building one here, to open in March. I'm hoping to get some kind of part time gig there.

I don’t do CFA all that often due to location of the stores nearest my house, but it’s a rather easy choice whenever a meal or snack time coincides with proximity. The stores are immaculate and the staff are the friendliest. In most recent visit the young man who took our order told us we could go sit down and then brought our lunch to the table.

My favorite items are the spicy chicken sandwich and the chicken biscuit. The waffle fries are wonderful and go with anything.

God bless Mr. McCarthy and his business. He doesn’t just talk the talk about ‘caring”, as the lying Democrats in office do. He and his managers literally “walked the walk” during this government-bungled snow crisis.

And yes, they buy the more expensive (but highly functional) ketchup packs. You can squirt it on a sandwich from the narrow end or pull the foil off and dip your fries.

The Gadsden, Alabama Chic-Fil-A decided to close when the snow came, but the workers couldn’t get home because icy roads were being shut down by the police, so they came back to the store.

Anybody who came by to seek shelter was fed for free!

I love Chick Fil A. I love everything about them. I love the nuggets, I love the sandwiches, I love the waffle fries, I love that the workers say, “My pleasure.” The fact that they’re a stand up corporation only increases my love for them. But as far as I’m concerned, they could be kicking puppies in the back room and I’d still be there a few times a month because I love their food that much.

The sandwiches are the signature but further down on the menu is the Chicken Tortilla Soup

There are some good things to eat and fantastic things to eat. The chicken tortilla soup is fantastic

Chicago's Rahm Emanuel declared “Chick-Fil-A’s values are not Chicago values.”

That one has always made me laugh - what are Chicago values anyway?

Chick-Fil-A will probably get sued for not have a “portable street vendor license” or some outlandish reason. Certainly we can't have good Samaritans doing good things without a license. (sarc)

I am most impressed with the job they do training their employees. This is an entry level position and I have yet to find a bad CF employee. They go out of their way to ask if they can help customers. The employees speak correctly, make eye contact and are well mannered. These will be the leaders in the future! Great job CF.

I wanted to stop at the one in Manassas on my way home tonight, but it was slammed. It always is. I'd have gone in but tonight I had a sick kitty (coming home from the vet) to get home.
