A few days ago Ratburgher Robert A. McReynolds posted his frustration that many conservatives were slow to turn on Chick-fil-A after the news broke about how Chick-fil-A was putting a knife in the back of the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. I was one of the slow ones; I have seen conservatives, many times led by NeverTrump Quislings, rush to judgement to condemn other conservatives. As a conservative, one of my traits is ‘look before you leap.’
Now additional information is available, and I am fully on board with Robert McR.
Chick-fil-A is not to be boycotted just for the way they have flipped on legions of loyal customers who were fiercely supportive on account of the way Chick-fil-A had stood up to Leftist pressure and had resisted the Social Justice anti-Christian culture. In addition to that, Chick-fil-A has rolled over; they negotiated with terrorists and paid extortion money to agents of the Enemy.

The range varies between 250 miles (400 km) for the least expensive model to 500 miles (800 km) for the most expensive. More details are available on Wikipedia.
Most of you know I hate “tele-monsters” with a passion that is unequaled.
I’ve subscribed to NOMOROBO.com for my home phone and they take care of 99% of the “tele-monsters”. But there was that single ring before NOMOROBO would pick up the line and then disconnect the “tele-monster”. So I found a “First Ring Eliminator” onAmazonand installed that. Now I don’t hear that annoying first ring. (It’s unfortunately not available right now.)
In June, 1997, Jeff Bezos, who still had hair, gave a brief interview during the Special Libraries conference in Seattle. He explains why he chose books as the first product on which to concentrate, and how building something on-line which couldn’t exist in the real world (a bookstore with access to every book available anywhere) distinguished Amazon from other early E-commerce ventures and generated large amounts of free publicity and word-of-mouth referrals.
I write a weekly book review for the Daily News of Galveston County. (It is not the biggest daily newspaper in Texas, but it is the oldest.) After my review appears on Sunday, I post the previous week’s review here on Sunday.... [Read More]
China demolished a church. Not just any church; this was an impressive megachurch that was built for massive worship services. There was no warning. Demolition crews and police showed up during a worship service, started tearing the building down with a large track crane, and evicted the worshippers. The next day they arrested the pastors:
“…officials detained the church’s pastors, Geng Yimin and Sun Yongyao, on suspicion of “gathering a crowd to disturb social order.””
“I think there’s a pretty major impact if you just look at the numbers,” says Victor Shih, a political economist at the University of California, San Diego, who studies the Chinese economy. China exports more goods to the U.S. than to any other country in the world, and those exports have dropped by more than 12% this year alone, he says.... [Read More]
Chick-fil-A exploits chickens for profit. The below is excerpted from an actual news article:
“Many U.S. cities, campuses, and retail outlets have refused to allow Chick-fil-A to locate within their spaces, and/or have been vocal opponents of the corporation’s hateful values,” the statement continued. “Toronto and the rest of Canada need to be next in line.”... [Read More]
According to recent Census data, 277 people move away from the New York metropolitan area every day. That is over 100,000 people a year. After seeing this data my first thought was, “Why isn’t it more?”
Don’t get me wrong, New York City has a lot to offer. It also has high real estate costs, high city taxes, high state taxes, and all sorts of costly regulations.... [Read More]
