    It's pronounced Pa-koh-tas, like "Dakotas." The "o" sound is long, like the "o" sound in "Joe." The moderator from the League of Women Voters of Pullman asks about half a dozen questions at the League's primary forum on Monday night before she finally gets it right. (SNIP) (McMorris Rodgers, who was campaigning in Spokane on Monday, never responded to the League's invitation. Horne missed the forum in order to crash a Republican shindig and confront McMorris Rodgers in person.) (SNIP) Tom Horne (R): The Obama administration should shut the hell up. This is an Israeli problem. Wars brought to a...

  • Nethercutt: Cantor loss is warning to GOP leaders

    Former Rep. George Nethercutt, who pulled off his own dramatic unlikely Congressional victory 20 years ago unseating Speaker of the House Tom Foley, of Spokane, said Tuesday he could see parallels between his experience and that of David Brat. “It’s a message, as I look at it, to all members of the House: You’ve got to pay attention to what people at home are saying,” Nethercutt said. (SNIP) McMorris Rodgers has three opponents in the August primary: Republican Tom Horne, Democrat Joe Pakootas and Independent Dave Wilson. The two candidates with the most votes will face-off in November.

    Why not just keep Cathy McMorris Rogers? Term Limits Very few members of the House, or Senate, turn out to be leaders on issues vital to our nation. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has been in the House now for 10 years and she has worked her way up the Republican leadership chain, but there is no indication that she is an important voice or a leader on any vital issue or that she is likely to become one. She has done a workmanlike job which is just fine, but no reason to keep her in the House forever. By the time...

    A retired engineer and volunteer firefighter who joined the race against Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers on Friday said he’s unimpressed with the five-term incumbent and others in House Republican leadership on issues ranging from immigration to health care. Tom Horne, 65, of Nine Mile Falls, said he wants to replace the Affordable Care Act with a better system but questions House Republicans’ multiple votes to repeal it, only to have the bills die in the Senate.

    Dan Cathy decided to make a PUBLIC statement to Mike Huckabee that, at the least, muddied the progress we had made with Chick-fil-A and, at the worst, contradicted the documents and promises Chick-fil-A made to me and the community earlier this month. Since Mr.Cathy made a PUBLIC statement, I am PUBLICLY asking him to confirm and support what I was told and shown by his company representatives. 1. For the FIRST TIME in the company’s history the company wrote and distributed a document to all of its employees titled, “Chick-fil-A: Who We Are” that guarantees that the company and its...

    ATLANTA (BP) -- Following reports that Chick-fil-A had agreed to stop funding certain traditional family groups in order to get approval for a new Chicago restaurant, company President Dan Cathy said Friday the restaurant made no concessions and "we remain true to who we are." Cathy's statement, posted on Mike Huckabee's website, came one day after the company released its own statement saying that its corporate giving has "been mischaracterized" for many months and that it will continue to fund programs that "strengthen and enrich marriages." Said Cathy, "There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed...

    Chick-fil-A reported record sales last Wednesday as thousands showed support for owner Dan Cathy and his stance on Biblical marriage. However, while individual believers stood in long lines to publicly endorse God’s plan for the family and vent their frustration at the media’s criticism of Dan Cathy’s Biblical stance, a number of churches seemed to opt out of the conflict. While the mayors of three large cities and a few University administrators were publicly threatening to ban Chick-fil-A, and while the discussion was the hot news topic of the week, there were many ministers who said little or nothing at...

    Today is Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, and who better to make the case for traditional values at the Republican National Convention than Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy, a man who lives them in his business and personal life and who has paid a heavy price for publicly saying so? Mr. Cathy learned the hard way what President Obama meant when he said that this election is a choice between two different visions for the country -- and by saying publicly he supports the biblical definition of the family, Cathy put himself at odds with President Obama and his Democratic Party allies on...

    Chick-fil-A's values are not Chicago values. They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment. --Chicago mayor, Rahm Emanuel, speaking on why he is in favor of blocking Chick-fil-A from opening in Chicago Recent comments from those who administer our city seem to assume that city government can decide for everyone what "values" must be held by the citizens of Chicago..being a Chicagoan never [before] included submitting my value system to the government for approval...must those who do not conform [now] move? Is the City Council going to set up a "Council Committee on Un-Chicagoan Activities"...
  • CFA Appreciation Day – The Triumph of the Ordinary

    The Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day yesterday was historic. It was historic because it marks a new method of mass protest. I even hesitate to use the word ‘protest’ because it wasn’t a protest. There wasn’t any anger. There wasn’t any hate. There wasn’t any bullying. There were no unwashed crowds of unhappy people holding a sit in and causing other people stress, inconvenience and expense. There were no protest signs, no marches, no noise makers and attention grabbers. There were no revolutionary slogans, no clenched fists, no class warfare, no sullen adolescents in a stroppy mood. The classic signs of a...

    And the day’s not over yet. Somewhere, a Burger King ad man’s toying with the idea of having “The King” declare himself “100% pro-life.” @dancathy just called me. #ChickFilA has already set a world record today, with 7 more hrs to go in the West. #OutOfChicken— Rick Warren (@RickWarren) August 2, 2012 Not a word about today’s activities has been whispered on Chick-fil-A’s feed even though CFA has been trending on Twitter off and on all day. As noted in the earlier post, the suspicion is that the company’s lying low about what’s happening in order to extricate itself from...

This August first is support your local ChicknFilA day and I've decided to buy friends and family some of their gift cards.

    I have to laugh when I read that a group excludes others because it is inclusive. And then I think, are you even listening to yourself? As Inigo Montoya says, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” Such illogic, “I’m tolerant and inclusive, so I’m excluding you” is on display again. This time it’s from The Jim Henson Company, which describes itself as “an established leader in family entertainment for over 50 years.” This announcement is on its Facebook page: The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness...

    The head of public relations at Chick-fil-A died Friday morning of an apparent heart attack, according to a local news report. WBRL News 3 in Georgia identified the employee as Donald A. Perry, the company’s vice president of Corporate Public Relations. His death comes as Chick-fil-A finds itself embroiled in a public relations fiasco with the gay community and supporters of same-sex marriage protesting the company because of statements made by company president Dan Cathy. Perry joined Chic-fil-A in 1983, according to information posted on the website of Hillcrest Church of Christ. He became an elder of the church in...

    The Chick-fil-A saga continues. It all started when president and COO Dan Cathy made statements against gay marriage. and now, things have ramped up into a national debate. Rev. Billy Graham, the legendary evangelical minister, has now entered the fray, coming to the aid of Chick-fil-A. The polarizing 93-year-old is against gay marriage, and earlier this year, he publicly endorsed a constitutional amendment to ban it in North Carolina. Graham has traditionally stayed away from "thorny social issues" for years, according to CNN, so this should raise some eyebrows. Here's the statement from Graham: “I want to express my support...

    At what point did being right and normal become “controversial”? Oh, we know the cultural tectonic shift from traditional moral values to chaotic debauchery began in earnest in the 1960s, and we have seen our society gradually and steadily slide into moral decay since then. Those of us who stand for biblical values and principles have allowed the public conversation about truth to be hijacked by the radical Left, although that hijacking has been subtle and creeping. Therefore we now have a media storm of “controversy” when a prominent businessman makes a commonplace statement about his belief in traditional family...

    “I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say ‘we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.” ~ Dan Cathy, President, Chick-fil-A Chick-fil-A is a family-owned, family-run business which is guided by explicitly biblical business principles and even closes on Sunday in honor of what the Scriptures call “the Lord’s day.” Chick-fil-A started in 1967 and has recorded 44...
