Squawk of the Day - August 11, 2012

"You won’t buy Chick-fil-A since they spoke against homosexuality, so when are you going to stop buying gas since Saudi Arabia believes that homosexuality is a sin punishable by death?"

The guy makes a point about the hypocrisy.

IIt is the same point that can be made about jobs going overseas. It never ceases to amaze me that so many lame brained democrats call the republicans outsourcer of jobs and then they are posting their comments using a Chinese made I-pad.

Personally i am glad he brought the comment up in the manner in which he did. He is simply pointing out the HYPOCRISY.

( Democrats - do as i say not as i do )

This is just an excuse. Gays need their 15 minutes of fame. They will be on the back burner after the election and gay marriage will be taboo again. Chick-fil-le is making a killing.

If you have been blessed by waking up with the ability to breathe this morning, then today is a good day. For once, let's just be positive and think of all the good that is happening around us. Every day in America, in Albany and surrounding communities, there are people being generous and kind with their heart, spirit, physical ability, money, and love. Take the time to say thank you and show your appreciation by doing the same. Our lives would be fuller if we take time to appreciate the good, stop focusing on all the bad, and giving thanks to our Maker.

Yes, the Chick-Fil-a thing is getting a little old now. BUT, I have never heard any liberals answer this question!! I would love to hear their answers.

a bipartisan food stamp solution that will eliminate fraud and it came from a yahoo poster named homer- so i propose we name it" homers law "

Homers Law : " , The purpose of food stamps is to assure that families and children don't starve correct. There is so much abuse in the system , here is my solution. scrap the current system and award vouchers to local food banks. These food banks can not only stretch the dollar a lot further but buy in bulk. The poor can then go to these banks for their weekly supplies. If you want to benefit from these banks you must volunteer at least 20 hours a week to stock shelves and keep it running. Don't give me that #$%$ its embarrassing and demeaning, it should be, it will motivate you to get off the dole "

I challenge anyone making 50k a year to show me where the tax dollars you pay into federal government comes back to you under barrack Obama. this is why middle class has to vote Obama out. Obama sends tax dollars to a select few and it is not the people earning 50k a year. this income group gets very little but pays in most. Romney said he want to help middle class- lets give him the chance

I am not boyoctting Chick-fil-A. In fact, I ate there this week. However, I suppose the answer would be when the Saudis start donating money to American organizations trying to prevent homosexuals from getting the right to marry. As it stands, chick-fil-a is an American company trying to influence American legislation. That would seem to be the big difference. Of course, sharia law, which is practiced in several oil-producing countries, also dictates adultery is punishable by death, blashphemy is punishable by death. I suppose if we reach a point when sharia law is attempted in the United States everyone will protest, revolt even -- gay, straight, believer and non-believer.

Chick-fil-A. is not trying to influence American legislation or anything else. He was ASKED a question PERIOD and he answered the QUESTION ONLY. Nothing else.

2

billybob 1 year, 8 months ago

Actually, they donate a lot of money to groups actively trying to prevent gay marriage rights. This is pretty easily verifiable.

Billyboob, you have no idea of what you speak. I would suggest that you do a little research before making such a statement. Back up your falsies with facts!

Businesses should stay out of people's private lives. They are no more in a positon to be judgmental than you or I! Fry that chicken and shut up, Chick-Fil-A!

They will buy from a Canadian company which imports the larger amount of petroleum to America., What if heterosexual boycotted products the homosexuals own, sell ,or invented. Gheee's!!!!! I wonder if that would lessen the value of a Da Vinci painting.The symphonies would play less Tchaikovsky . no Walt Whitman poetry in the libraries.. Cant human beings just except everyone is different. Let's move on..............

I Agree. Everyone can find something they disagree with. But protesting against a business because an owner expresses an opinion is hypocritical. I guess we should have protests against the businesses that contribute to the ACLU, the NAACP, and most of all, boycott those cities where the mayors expressed their "opinions" of not having a CFA (Chicago, San Fran, Boston, etc. = no more business conventions for you!)

They are free to donate money to whatever cause they choose. If it is pro-Christian and not supportive of the gay agenda, then I will eat there even more frequently. That way, my money serves two good purposes at one time.

I think sales have increased by a lot since the comment which I love. This guy just awnsered a question & the useless liberal media tried to pounce on it. Looks like people may be finaly getting sick of the lieing media.
