    There is a lot that Chick-fil-A has done right. Earnings per store or AUV's (average unit volumes) are at the top of the QSR50 at 4.4 million. To put that into perspective the average unit volume of a Subway store is a paltry $422,000... ...3. You own nothing and build no equity. This one is huge. In a typical franchise arrangement after you have spent years working hard and building up a business when it's time to retire or move on you can typically sell that business or pass it on to your family. Successful franchises can be worth millions....

    ...Translation: "This town ain't big enough for the both of us, because we are inclusive and tolerant and aren't going to put up with your beliefs. So get out of town by midnight, if'n you know what's good for you and your families!" The Left is no longer content with soft tyranny. Its tactics are metastasizing, becoming ever more vulgar, aggressive, violent. Whether taking people's "MAGA" hats and lighting them on fire or urinating on them as in Minneapolis; chasing Trump officials and supporters out of restaurants and public places in cities across the country; or threatening them with bodily...

    Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee posted a lengthy political rant on Tuesday, and he appeared to say ‘McPence’ is in the closet, though it may have been just part of his insult. Tommy Lee revealed an awful paycheck from Motley Crue’s ‘The Dirt’ yesterday. “You Trumpsters better pray that liberals never gain control of the WH [White House] again because we are going to pay you back so f**king hard for all of this shit.

    Gracelyn Mae Violet Griffin’s birth certificate will always be a conversation starter. That’s because in the spot for “location,” it reads, “Born in Chik-Fil-A,” according to a Facebook post from her father, Robert Griffin. Her dad, who isn’t a doctor, is listed as the attending physician. Robert Griffin detailed the Tuesday night of a lifetime in that Facebook post. It all started, he wrote, when Team Griffin pulled into the Chik-Fil-A parking lot to drop off their other two daughters with a family friend, on their way to University Hospital.

    In what could be a first for a global fast food outlet, Burger King is making a bold proclamation in support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community with the launch of a specially packaged burger. The "Be Your Way" project was created at a Burger King franchise in San Francisco, where a limited edition "Proud Whopper" sandwich was added to the menu to coincide with the city's annual pride festivities. According to press materials, guests who ordered the "Proud Whopper" found that the sandwich was the same as a classic Whooper, but came wrapped in a rainbow-colored...

    Elon University has now ceased to be a serious institution of higher learning. In fact, it no longer deserves to be called a university in the wake of its decision to create a new Vendor Policy Study Committee. The committee, which was created by Elon's Board of Trustees in October, is part of a response to efforts to ban Chick-fil-A from the Elon campus. Its very existence shows that Elon cannot expeditiously handle simple issues concerning tolerance and inclusion. Instead, it legitimates bigotry by giving serious consideration to anti-religious zealots who would best be ignored. Elon's 15-member committee is...

    Liberal academics have been using speech codes for years. They hear an idea they don't like and it makes them angry. But they don't quite know how to defeat the idea on its own merits. So instead of either a) taking the time to cool down and offer a rational response, or b) actually changing their view, they simply give in to the impulse to censor. That is why our campus speech codes really don't reduce so-called hate speech. They simply embolden those who hate speech. I wish I could say that this childish inclination toward censorship is unique to...

    The leader of a national gay-rights group says he’s coming out–as a friend of Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy. “I’ve gotten to know Dan, he’s gotten to know me. He’s shared concerns about young people, about Chick-fil-A being used for certain purposes,” Shane Windmeyer, executive director of Campus Pride, told ABC News. SNIP In July, Equality Matters examined tax forms and found that in 2010 the restaurant chain had donated over $1.9 million to “anti-gay causes.” In September, the restaurant chain pledged to stop donating to anti-gay groups. Windmeyer says those donations stopped in 2011.

    Well, the Republicans caved and Barack Obama celebrated in Hawaii while planning his next step in creating an irreversible welfare state. Taxes will rise, spending will soar, and the media will cheer on Mr. Obama as he presses for even more as the debt ceiling deadline approaches. Instead of giving into despair or anger, conservatives need to plan for the long haul. Tea Party people, Christian conservatives, national security conservatives and fiscal conservatives (there’s a lot of overlap here) are already working to establish an actually conservative Republican Congress in 2014. It would be nice to have some conservative...

    A Chicago alderman who had threatened to block Chick-fil-A from opening a store in his community says he will no longer stand in the chicken chain’s way after company leaders agreed to create policies that support the gay, lesbian and transgendered community. Proco “Joe” Moreno said in a statement Tuesday that Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A has placed in a company document an agreement that directs its employees to treat people of all backgrounds with “honor, dignity and respect — regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation and gender.” The chain also said it would refrain from engaging in political or social...

In meetings the company executives clarified that they will no longer give to anti-gay organizations. But...

    “Government ’help’ to business is just as disastrous as government persecution... the only way a government can be of service to national prosperity is by keeping its hands off.” That is what Ayn Rand has to say about government involvement in the world of business, but the full extent of this practice is difficult to nail down. Tad DeHaven of the CATO Institute investigated the situation to determine exactly how deep the problem runs. Periodically, CATO analyzes the federal budget to ascertain exactly how much money our government shovels out to favored parties. Unfortunately, over the years both parties have...

Last November’s invitation to readers stated, At this time, news organizations prepare their year-end retrospective replays of what they consider to have been the top news stories of the previous 12 months. But WND’s editors have always found it more newsworthy to publish a compilation of the...
