Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day

This morning I heard on the KFBK that today was Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. Ellen and I discuss our options, we could go to Roseville and joint the crowd supporting an organization that stands by it’s principles, or we could stay home and provide support on the Internet.
While we did not go to Roseville one of our regular reader did and submitted this report:
Judy and I travelled to Roseville this morning and were reminded while en route by the car radio that today was Show Support For Chick-fil-A day. Seems some constitutionally ignorant eastern city mayors and the equally sycophant media have allowed their opposition to Chick-fil-A’s support of traditional marriage (the outrage!) to cause them to blurt out their intentions to bar Chick from expanding in their cities, no permits forthcoming. All for Chick politely exercising their First Amendment protected free speech in an interview – with a religious news organization. Can’t have that in contemporary Left-Am. One wonders what the voters will think of that. My god, the intolerance of the lefties for those not in lock-step with their tortured perspectives! Opposition opinions not permitted. Pathetic, and quite telling.
Anyway, on our way to TJs and Costco we decided to put our iPhone to work to find us a Chick-fil-A in Roseville. There is one, and since we were hearing on the radio about record lines across the country we decided at 1036 am it might be wise to get there early for lunch. Turning off the 65 freeway onto Pleasant Grove en route to the Chick the traffic was already building. We had to park in a neighboring lot and walked over to take our place in line. Lots of regular people in line, couples, families, grandparents and kids. Nice folks. The drive-through was equally busy. The young staff behind the counter were doing a laudable job, and all were noticeably clean-cut and very polite. We were most impressed. Lunch was very good, too.
We wonder how the Chick-fil-A staff will enjoy the “kiss-in” planned by the intolerant gay exhibitionist later this week.
On the way out the line had tripled and the traffic line was backed up to Rocklin, well, at least a long city block.
God bless Americans!
The support for Chick-fil-A has been extraordinary and Ellen and I regret that we did not join the long line of supporters. However, Chick-fil-Awill our lunch spot the next time we are in Roseville, it id only s few blocks from our daughter house. It is important continue the support over time. See you at the Chick-fil-A.
