Pansy activism

I assume most of you are aware of Chick-fil-A's CEO making his comments regarding the biblical definition of marriage, or at least his definition of scripture. It was misguided and showed how ignorant he is of the Old Testament, as well as the current prevailing wind of marriage equality that's sweeping the nation.

In the interest of disclosure, I'm all for marriage equality and have written and acted in support of it.

Many have expressed outrage about this, even though he never once mentioned homosexuals. His company has a policy of non-discrimination of employees that are gay, but his religious beliefs are unacceptable to a lot of us. Hell he has the same views on gay marriage as once did our president circa 2008. Therefore a boycott was called for his views, and many have pledge never to eat at Chick-fil-A.

The mayor of Boston has threatened to deny Chick-fil-A permits, only to pull a 180 on it when he probably realized denying a company a permit based on their religious views is probably against a little thing called the First Amendment. Talking heads are discussing the wisdom of the CEO's comments, and many are paying attention to the future of the company.

The boycott is as stupid as it is misguided. Boycotting a franchise will do little to hurt the pocketbook of Dan Cathy, unless they were calling stock brokers to stop trading in shares. And really, if the company went to hell he would still be richer than you'll ever be, and will laugh as he released Filipinos on his private island to partake in human hunting. It will only hurt the franchise owners, who already shelled their money to the Cathy family when they bought the restaurant, and the people they employ, the 99% if you will.

If you really wanted to take the moral high ground in activist consumerism, then you probably shouldn't buy gasoline, as some of the member countries that make up OPEC tend to look down upon homosexuality, even going so far as to believing they need to be put to death. Yeah, you need to buy a bicycle. You'll pad the wallets of Chinese manufacturers who run inhumane sweat shops to buy your neat little technological device that you're using to read this, or the clothes you're wearing, without giving two shits about the people making those products.

I know it's hard in a world with few moral absolutes to try and only give money to companies that are progressive and think exactly like you do about every issue, but to call out Chick-fil-A, when you willingly spend your money on things that contribute to people with far worse ideologies and practices is hypocritical at best.

If you don't enjoy Chick-fil-A sandwiches and still feel that not going there will make a difference, by all means don't go there, but don't profess your holier than thou boycott of tasty chicken as if you're some edgy, finger on the pulse of social politics. It makes you seem like as much of an idiot as Dan Cathy is.

“It’s clearly unconstitutional for the city to deny permits based on a person’s opinions. It opens the city up to criticism and even litigation.” - UCLA law professor Eugene Volok

Chick-fil-A beef puts mayor in pressure cooker

Activists are just people too lazy to have real jobs anyway so who cares what they think.

I've never been to the restaurant in question but I will offer my soul to the devil to protect my right to have fast food fried chicken.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

3. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

-25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
-25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
-85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
-70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
-The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
