  1. And by the way what is all this non discrimination junk that people think is possible. If i discriminate then you discriminate against me. Impossibilities are just that impossible. I could give a rats ass if someone dislikes me because I am white, heterosexual, blue eyes, support hunters and hunting, eat cow, hate cats, love dogs, think that our current president sucks and so will our next one, despise walking into wally world and think that if you are here illegally get the hell out. So if you don't like it walk away and find someone whoms feelings actually get hurt about something.









    And maybe some of these peoples parents should have been gay too, that way we would not have to subject our lives to their whining

  2. Out there. Waaaaaay, way out there.


    Discrimination defies common sense.


    The majority must never discriminate against a minority, even by majority vote. The discrimination must end.


    No one has suggested Mr. Cathy may not contribute to whomever or whatever cause he wants.


    No one, NO ONE, has suggested you don't have free choice.


    You've arguing points that no one is bringing up. The point is that he is advocating a public policy that is bigoted. He is on the wrong side of history with this and the company will not be viewed favorably on this in 50 years.

    Maybe he is on the Right side of history here. As all the other liberal minded bafoons are trying to win over a certain populace he publicly denounces it and for that BRAVO.

  3. The primary reason for police officers taking their vehicles home is because of the deterrance to crime in places where a police vehicle is located. Most communities like having them there for that reason.

    Explain to me why my neighbor got his truck broke into when within 100 yards in any direction sits PCSO, or Polk. It will only deter the non"criminal". I have know many officers of the law and have been told numerous times how their house or car ws broke into. And I don't care that county vehicles are driven for personal reasons, I care that the drivers think that they can drive them like a 16 year old on a back country road.
  4. First, it is not a "chosen lifestyle" but a born-with charisteritic, just like skin color or any host of other things.


    Second, I am appalled you would put homosexuals in the same category as child molesters, murders, psychopaths or otherwise individuals who harm people.


    Third, instead of proposing the dissolution of the legal contract of marriage for all people, why not extend the same legal contract to all people.


    Lastly, why is your version of God the only version? How is that different from the Taliban, sans the violence?

    Ok as for putting peple in categories the only category I mentioned was immorallity. And as for that born with bs execuse I do not believe it for a second. If you do than believe that Sandusky was born with pedophilia as a condition from birth. Which by the way has as much psychological beginnings at inception as does homosexuality. And for your info I spent 10 years and 10 months and 2 days in the staates wonderful DOC as an inmate and I know that all the gays in their chose their lifesytle just as we(inmates) chose to commit crimes deemed wrong by society.




    And I would also like to point out to you that a real marriage is between a man and woman, and that is in the many versions of the Holy Bible that I have studied, also says in the Koran, and I doubt the Dali lama likes to slob on one or could mange to keep peace if his monks started openly commiting felatio. So maybe that pony you are on needs to be reined in and reality allowed to be set in. If you purport to be Christian you can not advocate same sex marriage. If the state wants to legalize it that is fine keep the Church out of it and do not try to say that God, Allah,Ahura Mazda, Waheguru, Amaterasu, and any other recognized religous God that is in exixtence today, Will bless that marriage, union, decree or what have you may.

  5. Alwyas wondered that myself. I see the vehicles especially patrol cars driven to personal homes, always wonder why. Firemen do not drive the fire trucks home. The dot does not drive motor graders and ice trucks home. And for some reason I have never seen a national guard motor pool empty because the soldiers have M1 Abrams or UH-60's parked in their yard. Just sayin

  6. Alright everyone, I have the answer. The Federal Govt should just make any future marriage, same sex or opposite sex null and void. Outlaw it completely , everyone just lives with their partner and that way we are all treated equal in the eyes of the law.




    And for all of you who speak of hate of another, you find me one person who can be honest and say that they do not dislike a group of people. You all go "Coexist" with James Holmes, Jerry Sandusky, Wayne williams, Joseph Kony, Charles Manson, Eric Toth and the Many other people who have done horrendous things. Yeah I know some of you are going to say I am calling Gay marriage horrendous, no I am not I am calling all of you who claim to be perfect individulas whom say that we can not disagree with someone about moral or immoral because then we will be hating a group of people and hating is wrong a bunch of two bit bigots that have their heads so far up in the clouds they have lost sight of their own Christain ethics. Pray for them, comfort them, help them, and love them, but do not condone their chosen lifestyle. That goes for the murderers, rapists, theives, imbezzlers, and anyone else the have a tendency to fall from God.




    Thank you Dan Cathy,

    Thanks for being brave

    Thanks for being Christain

    Thanks for standing up


    And Thank you fot those wonderful sandwiches.


    Ps buy american made please

  7. Employers do not need to pay exempt employees the mandated minimum wage rate or overtime as long as the statutory exemption requirements are met. For a summary of those requirement, read the DOL's exemption fact sheets. Currently, the misclassification byemployers of employees as exempt is one of the most active areas of enforcement for the DOL. If you are an employer, you need to make sure the employees you current have classified asexempt are truly exempt. Employers that improperly classify employees as exempt are generally required to reimburse the improperly classified employees for the income lost due to the improper classification. Employers may also be subject criminal prosecution and fines up to$10,000 or $1,000 per violation depending on the willfulness of the violation.


    Non-exempt Employees

    For non-exempt employees, the FLSA sets minimum wage rates and overtime requirements.


    Minimum Wage:

    Currently, the standard federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour.

    Employees under the age of 20 may be paid not less than $4.25 per hour for the first 90 consecutive calendar days of employment. The 90 consecutive calendar days include bothdays worked and days not worked.


    If employees received tips as part of their wages, they must be paid a minimum of $2.13 per hour and there total wages (wages + tips) must be equal or greater than the standard minimum wage rate. (Other requirements must be met for an employer to be able to pay the $2.13 wage rate).


    Failure to comply with minimum wage laws can result in monetary penalties and imprisonment depending on the gravity and willfulness of the violation.

  8. The original Christian church? Ooooh K.


    I think I will just stop and let everyone kinda read what you're writing and let it sink in. It's getting out there.




    Thank you as this whole topic has digressed from the moment you started.

    We tend to get great service at the places we frequent. I do tend to tip well, though. Just today I left a 23% tip. I have left as much tip as the meal cost, but it was when I had a lunch special or something like that.



    I also like to tell the management when I have been given great service, I have been know to call corporate when it is a chain.

  10. 4th sentence in your first post reads like this. I am proud of Mr. Cathy for standing up to the mainstream supporters of nonchristain beliefs.

    Or you post that said You need not talk of "christains" who are only that in name. My link

    You are, again, saying that only your version is real and every other idea is twisted.

    So I never said "true" thought so. Oh and I am actually a member of the original Christain church. I might have a perpensity to expound my beliefs a little bit stronger.




    And on another note Jim Jones was purpotedly Christain, David Koresh and many others. Only cult leaders though right? Their churches did not make it quite as far as some others have.

  11. I used to work at Catfish Den, not the original one and there was a lady who had 3 or 4 children, would come in and she would NOT tip, no matter how good the service was. Her children were little heathens, too. It got to the point where NO ONE would wait on her.


    Tipping is not a requirement it is a gesture. A way to say thanks without having to verbally communicate it. There are all types of rudeness around us. Used to be a bag boy at good ol' WD, did not always receive tips but would have gladly carried out non tippers groceries over and over again just to help them out and maybe extend some type of happiness to them. Sure I liked my tips, I just enjoyed working.

  12. But you based your entire premise on what is "true religion" in your very first post.


    So you're saying that only people that agree with your version are Christians and everyone else who has a different view are not real Christians?



    China also persecutes the Tibetan monks and Muslims too. So how does that fit in with being "anti-Christian?"


    YOu made me re-read my first post and could not find where I said any thing about true religon. And sorry to say it but I do not like to openly judge others, all I can do is stand firm in my own faith and use the guiding principles of the Holy Bible to make decisions about what I choose to support orwhat I think is moral ethical and proper. I could probably go out and print up a whole new version of the bible and it could contain whatever I want it to so that truths can be twisted to fit a particular want of something or desire for.

  13. Yes that would apperar true just as the establishment can refuse service to whomever it chooses being a private place. It would be quite rude not to tip the server or to not pay the advertised gratuity amount. If your service is not up to par, talk to management. Nothing like getting a server in line when you start talking to the boss. Or there is always my favorite thing to do, knock your drink on the floor or table, and repeat again when you get a fresh one.

  14. I have no fear of people carrying weapons where they like. Just the other day a 60 something year old man thwarted a robbery at an internet cafe when he pulled his pistol and began shooting very discrimanately at the robbers. Laughed my ass off at that. wish the entire cafe would have been packing that would have been absolutely hilarious.

  15. No. You're saying he is bigoted against some people and using his version of religion as an excuse for his bigotry.


    You're saying China is anti-Christian. Please cite the Bible verses so we can see what makes them anti-Christian.


    I think you meant "immoral" so we'll go with that. Other Christian groups would disagree completely that homosexuality is immoral. So basically you're presenting YOUR VERSION of Christianity as THE VERSION and all that disagree are not Christian. Got it.


    Ok let us not debate what christains believe because some believe that pedophilia is perfectly ok. You need not talk of "christains" who are only that in name.


    China banned bibles in 2008 at the olympics, the govt. persecutes thousands daily. I think it should be self evident that they are not for christianity.

  16. Well regardless of how much negative media they have gotten, it didn't look like it was hurting them any. I went by 2 today and both where so crammed full that there where no parking spaces. The food is just darn good there..


    But if people don't like something, just don't buy it. Problem solved for you. I think the book idea is a wonderful one. I agree with you, I also wish they would buy American made so it would open up jobs here. That is one of the problems with the U.S.A. WE are no longer a Independent Country. Everything is imported. Try to buy only American Made products. It is almost impossible. Used to be easy when that was all Wal-mart bought.



    Wow thank you, thought this site was being run by Hu Jintao and the PLA

  17. So you're saying that America is Christian and other nations are not?


    It's been a while but I don't recall the Bible saying anything about Communism as something evil. Even non-communist governments persecute people for their beliefs or actions, America included.


    And you're wrong about Chic-Fil-A standing for Christian values. It is standing for ONE VERSION of Christianity. Many other Christian groups have a completely different take on the issue.


    No I am saying that Dan cathy is anti gay marriage based on christian principles and that China is anti christain and buying chinese products supports anti christain principles thereby standing up for one thing and not the other is being a little bit bigot. And not trying to turn this into strictly a religous topic. Oh you are right the bible says nothing about communism or the klan or neo nazi's or the many other things which we know to be inherently evil or not so nice. But it does speak of supporting those which aid in unmoral activity.

  18. So your democrat roots run deep. Screw the man! Fight the power! If you're so pro-America you might want to look at what your Unions did to our auto industry. You can thank them for the fine Commiemobiles that grace our American highways.


    Yes my Democratic roots run deep aabout as deep as my republican. by the way I am a United Assosiciation Plumber that has helped build over half of the wellstar projects and will be looking forward to working with my fellow Union brothers from the IBEW and The USMW on the new Paulding campus.

  19. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. So once you remove all your communist products from your life and home, then you can begin to worry about CFA and their communist ties.



    Never said CFA was sinning. I am not judging them only making paralells. And we must try our best as Christains to do what is right. Can't be perfect on earth as there will only ever be one, but can try our hardest can we not.

  20. Maybe some of the BIG problems stem from the fact 2/3 of our consumer products are made in China, or the fact that to keep face with everyone we have to keep in line with mainstream "un"ethics.


    And no people I occasionally have to buy foreign made junk. Thanks to all of you for aiding in that dilemna. But I will support my own country even if it costs 20% more out of my pocket. Could just be the Union worker in me or the fact that my family has fought for this country in wars and in the streets via protests for over 250 years.

  21. You are going to have to stop shopping all together if you don't want products from China.


    It is not about products From China as much as it is Christain values. If you truly want to stand up for something you have got to make sure all your bases are covered or you look like a bigot.

  22. Ok People I love me some Chik Fil A sandwiches. Their service is superb, restraunt is clean, and they stand up for their faith, most of the time. We are living in a fast changing society and criticisim is everywhere. It is easy to be labled racisit, predjudice, or somethingphobic. I am proud of Mr. Cathy for standing up to the mainstream supporters of nonchristain beliefs. But at the same time my toddler son gets with his meal a book published in China. Well that goes against my christain faith also. I do not hate the Chinese, I hate communism. We all know that the communist regimes will persecute Christains at any given time, so how can Mr. Cathy oppose gay marriage but support communism? I think before he(Cathy) takes a stand based on religous beliefs he should have his ducks in a row. Now since my son got his communist book a few weeks ago I had already decided my family will not eat there again until some things are changed, but now I am in a pickle because Cathy made one of the biggest statements so far this year in which I agree.

  23. The law states that if you work for tips then the company does not have to pay standard minimum wage, unless your tips and subrate pay dooes not equal minimum wage. It is supposed to work out to where you are paid at the very minimum Hrs. worked X (tips+rate of pay)is equal to or greater than standard minimum wage for hours worked.
