The nearest Chick-Fil-A to me is about 30 minutes away and I’ve never eaten there. After having worked at McDonald’s for 2 years back in the day, I have this extreme aversion to ALL fast food restaurants! —Although I DO fully agree with and support a person’s first amendment right to believe and say whatever the hell they want… especially since Chick-Fil-A is a private business and NOT a publicly traded corporation (not a collectivist entity that you can buy stock in).
It is my great hope, that maybe…just maybe, this whole thing will teach people the value of “voting with your money”…my family and I have been living that way for years.
Supporting local businesses, buying directly from people through newspaper ads and flea markets and farmer’s markets, not shopping at Wal-Mart, choosing locally owned and operated restaurants over corporate restaurant chains like McDonald’s etc….
Money IS Power and to whomever you give it, you are giving them ..more power!
Do you want to give more power to corporations like Wal-Mart or Starbucks?? Or do you want to help empower the local economy and local small businesses, giving your money to the people who live right where you do?? ….I think the choice is obvious 😛
Buuuut as for chicken?? I’ve got chicken in my own backyard that is healthier, raised more humanely, cheaper and tastes much better! 😀
Sooo, when you get right down to it…
I opt out of the system completely and encourage everyone else to do the same! 😎
