Political Tyranny On Display.

By Honest Abe following x   2012 Jul 31, 3:53am 45,166 views   183 comments   watch   nsfw   quote     share    


Liberal politicians have finally come out of the closet with public displays of political tyranny. The liberal bastions of Boston and Chicago are using politics in an attempt to squash, censure and punish Chick-fil-A by preventing the company from opening outlets in their towns.

Its an open display of hostility, intolerance and government sponsored tyranny. Its glaringly obvious liberals are anti-business, anti-capitalism, anti-job creation and anti-constitution.

With liberal politicians headed down tyranny road, is it any wonder America is headed toward the cliff at wide open throttle?

You can stop right there. I'm good with that...

Dan8267 says

So let me put this in terms that republican voters can understand.

Image there is a restaurant called NoChicks-fil-A's that is run by PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Now image that PETA takes the profits from NoChicks-fil-A's and uses it lobby, directly or indirectly, to eradicate all hunting in the United States.

peta ... worse than the sierra club as far as hipocrits go. Since hunting feeds people, controls population and disease of animals, and keeps pest populations in check, I just dont equate it to forcing the public to accept the gov sanctioned abuse of special needs people at the hands of perverts and the mentally ill. That is sick. Hunting is a healthy sport, does great things, the tags pay for programs, and just may keep one alive in hard times.

Hey first of all, CFA food is not crappy. Its much better than McDs.

Now i didnt read your entire post cuz it was boring me but I did catch this...Dan8267 says

You might even boycott NoChicks-fil-A's and try to get municipalities and states to block expansion of this restaurant.

Boycotting CFA is fine, everyone has the right to do so, but for someone in political power such as those governors who publically state they will do EVERYTHING in their powers to keep CFA out of their state is a complete misuse of their power and not be tolerated. Its a dangerous slippery slope...

I was referring to all the republicans here complaining about the gay community denouncing CFA. Not everything revolves around you.

However, if you must know. The thing that "is it with us liberals hatred of the republicans" is that you can't type a coherent, sensible sentence. I've met lolcats with better communications skills.

Nevertheless, I can tell, Mecoss, that you are a republican despite your denial because you use the word "liberal" as if it had shit on it. Only republicans do that.

Gays as well as many straight Americans who believe in equal rights are exercising their freedom of speech to boycott CFA because that business does trample on other people's rights by financially supporting anti-equality organizations.

There is no boycott of CFA, as you have seen, it would not work. Such action will trigger a backlash!

I don't hunt myself I am a big fan of hunting and am fortunate enough to occasionally get my freezer stocked with venison, bear, elk, etc. (I make a great venison bourguignon). However, it is not some magical activity that has no downside and you are kidding yourself if you think otherwise. Early this year my sister did attend a funeral of a teenager who was accidentally killed, with a hunting rifle, by his brother.

I tried hunting some as a kid, and I did not like it. Killed a few birds, bothered me. Not cut out to kill for sport. I don't mind helping clean birds and fish, I just dont feel good about killing them for sport. I shoot sporting clays and trap and targets instead. If it was about eating, I'd shoot animals with no remorse.

Yeah, as a kid I "hunted" the birds that would eat off the fruit trees in our yard with a pellet gun, and did not like it so much either.

However, in my 20s I did use a .22 to solve skunk and raccoon issues and it did not bother me. But, if I was faced with the same "issues" today I think I would find a solution that did include killing.

I am not opposed to sport hunting when it serves a purpose such as population control, but I would not do it myself. Clays and trap is a lot of fun though.

http://www.wordnik.com/words/assine

Examples

“Maybe obama can reverse the assine law Bill Clinton put into place where our military can't carry weapons on military installations for self defense.”

“This woman is most highly qualified to be a Supreme court justice and those assine folk who would want to reject her because she is supposedly to liberal you all need to go back to your caves and crawl away!!”

“The fact that so many are obsessed with collage sports is totally assine , higher education should me exactly that.”

Meccos says

I would say the same thing about the stuff you say for example

The occasional typo is clearly different from writing incoherent crap as evident by the fact that my writings are comprehensible whereas much of the conservative rhetoric is not. For example,

I do not equate a birth defect or a perversion with the race issue. But, I may be alone in that. You see, the race issue is not really about true race or ethnic background, it's about outward appearance, lingo, and style of dress. Things that Billy-Bob could see at a glance. Totally not cool. On the other hand, there is no way for Billy-Bob to know which males want to sodomize/be sodomized by other males - unless said males say they do, act like they do, or dress like they do. Even then no court in the land could convict a male of sodomy based on any of that, while a negro can be proven to be negro fairly easily. Billy-Bob was an idiot about negros coupling with non-negros. And even worse when it came to Jews.

Meccos says

The ability to read between the lines does not imply anger.

Anyway, to everyone else on this thread... Does Meccos appear to be yet another Shrek/Mars/Ruki account? The writing style and tone of voice is remarkably similar.

Damn again with the hate.

YOU KNOW WHAT THE FUNNIEST PART OF THIS IS THOUGH????

In your attempt to prove me wrong about your use of the word "assine", you have proved to me and everyone else on this forum that you are a retard. YES YOU ARE CLEARLY A RETARD

If you have to look up a word on the internet and then copy and paste examples to prove yourself, then you may be a little less intelligent than what you present yourself to be... BUT if you look up a word on the internet and STILL use the word incorrectly by using examples where the word was misused, then you are a RETARD! The website you used states that "assine" is not a word and asks specifically if you meant "asinine"! Then on the right it goes on to show you examples of misuse. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

BTW here is what Dan copied and pasted. Please, everyone check it out for youself... he copied the first three examples to the right... LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

“The fact that so many are obsessed with collage sports is totally assine , higher education should me exactly that.”

So after several posts about my grammar, perhaps you should take a look at yourself and stop acting like you have a greater mastery of the English language than others. COuld this be a simple mistake like your other follies or is this the occasional typo... or just incoherent use of a non-existing word?

Ack! A food fight devolves into name calling, to the surprise of no one. If I may please offer some information, which might draw tomatoes from all sides, there is a bit more going on here than one fool rushing into an issue by expressing a personal opinion and then others reacting to his words. There is also his funding of hate groups:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/01/chick-fil-a-anti-gay-controversy-employees-speak-out_n_1729968.html

And, in major cities, independent businesses tend to oppose chains anyway. The mayors aren't tyrannically oppressing free speech, they're gaining votes and donations from local business interests that don't want to compete with chains. The mayors could have gained an equal number of votes by simply saying "I support equal rights, including marriage equality." Taking the extra step of using it as a reason to keep out a chain adds the incentive of donations from local independent business.

If you want to understand any story, always follow the money.

Yeah, this thread has deteriorate into meaningless ranting. The original point of the thread was that Boston and Chicago don't have the right to ban CFA. The only refutation of that point was an argument I proposed that cities do ban business like strip clubs, auto dealerships, etc. and cities do prohibit the sale of legal goods like alcohol on Sundays (so-called blue laws). If cities have the right to do that, then a CFA ban is no different.

Yet, the original point and counter-point were dropped as the conversation took off on the question of whether or not gay marriage should be a secular right. Since that's an important issue, I don't mind that. Last I checked, the two sides of that debate were left with the arguments:

For legal gay marriages
----------------------
The equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment requires state recognization of gay marriages just as it does the recognization of interracial marriages as shown in the Supreme Court decision of Loving vs. Virginia.

Against gay marriages
---------------------
Gays are retards and rapists who cannot consent to sex. Therefore, gay sex and pedophilia are exactly the same thing.

Finally Meccos hijacked the thread and turned it into “all liberals hate all republicans” and then further deteriorated it into a meaningless argument about spelling and grammar. Granted I did contribute to his tirade by demanding complaining about all the incoherent postings that the social conservatives have made. But come on, if you want to discuss an issue, especially a controversial one, it’s useful to avoid misinterpreting what the opposition is saying, and that’s a hell of lot easier if they write coherently.

I say it’s time to get this thread back on track. The two real issues being discussed here are
1. Whether or not gay marriage should be recognized equally under laws.
2. Whether or not municipalities have the right to ban or restrict legal businesses.

On issue one, I stand by my thesis:

Marriage should not exist as a secular institution since it is not the right or the responsibility of government to intervene or judge personal relationships. All laws regarding marriage should be repealed or replaced with marriage agnostic laws.

That said, if America does recognize marriage as a legal institution, then the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment as well as the philosophy of equality under law demands equal recognition of gay marriage.

One issue two, I propose that if the blue laws are legal, so would attempts by Chicago and Boston to ban CFA. Conversely, if Chicago and Boston have no legal right to ban CFA, then no state or municipality has the right to ban other legal businesses including strip bars, auto dealerships, and alcohol sales (even on Sundays).

Intelligent counter-arguments welcomed.

I have yet to hear anyone state that the CFA CEO is not entitled to his opinion or to express that opinion. What I have seen is people expressing their opinions contrary to his. Furthermore, boycotting is a perfectly legitimate way to exercise one's freedom of speech, whether or not a boycott has ever been successful.
