Appreciation Day

Chick-Fil-A looks to be on its way to doing a banner day today.  This photo was taken outside the Martinsburg, WV, restaurant just before a bomb threat against it was received:

While the Martinsburg site may lose some money because of the tolerance folks, the restaurant seems to be doing OK around the rest of the U.S.

But one thing people really, really need to remember about this:  a private business was attacked for the owner's personal religious beliefs by government entities using their positions of power.  Emanual and others are in positions where they can influence government actions against citizens based on those citizen's voiced opinions.  Countries have been here before - it has always ended badly for all of them.


  1. Hitler and the Jews and the Jewish Businesses.

    Emanual is a Nazi as far as I'm concerned.

    1. Ironically, I'm reading Albert Speer's "Inside the Third Reich" - the memoirs of one of Hitler's top men. Very few people dove headlong into fascism. They just slid into it.

    2. PH, I have been meaning to read that book. How is it so far?

    3. Good - he either wrote well or his translator wrote well. A lot of architecture stuff, because that's what he did, but still very interesting. The most fascinating thing is because he was around Hitler so much you see a fleshed out portrait of the dictator.
