so here’s the deal…

What happened to freedom of speech?

What happened to the right to your own opinion?

What happened to freedom of choice? (hahahahahaha this one is my favorite.)

Why are we focusing on small issues like this? There are bigger things in this world to worry about.

These are the majority of the arguments I see when it comes down to the Chick-Fil-A protest. Now I can’t answer for anyone but myself, but I’m guessing I’m not the only one who shares this opinion.

(warning, I’ve been fighting a horrid cold since Sunday and right now I’m high on Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold medicine…)

I would argue that our right to protest and Dan Cathy’s opinion both fall under freedom of speech, opinion and choice. This is a free country. Period.

However, I’m not protesting Dan Cathy’s opinion or his religious beliefs. I am protesting a business lobbying and funding millions of dollars against human rights. I don’t care how you feel about homosexuality, I care that we are all human and we all have the same rights. Your religious beliefs have nothing to do with the rights of every single human in this country. NOTHING.

Chick-Fil-A  has donated millions of dollars to the hate group Family Research Council, a group that equates homosexuality with pedophilia and who would like to see sodomy and other “homosexual” acts re-criminalized.

Let me ask you this: If Chick-Fil-A had donated millions of dollars to an active Neo-Nazi/White Supremacist Group or a Anti-Women’s Rights group would you still think that chicken sandwich tasted so damn good?

To me, they are the same thing. Human rights. And it’s okay if you don’t agree with my stance but please don’t kid yourself that supporting Chick-Fil-A isn’t supporting their anti-human rights agenda, because it is. They will gladly take your money and funnel it on to a hate group.

This is about Human Rights. And withholding my $4.00 from them may not do much, but at least I know that I’m not actively supporting hate.

Monday "fun" day

BlueBelle’s fan belt split apart yesterday on the way home from an epic weekend at the lake. So she took a ride.

This is just one more issue to add to her repertoire of late. El Jefe worked his butt off replacing her alternator last week. We’ve had to recharge and jump the battery multiple times, and now the fan belt.

I mean, I know she’s an old gal and these things happen, but do they all have to happen at once?

We had a blast at the weekend. Here’s a link to the photos. There was lots of shenanigans and mayhem.

I would like some of that peace and tranquility back. Also, I would really like for this head cold Jefe and I came home with to go away…

In other news, check this Chick out. This is a very funny and well-informed view of the Chick-fil-a hate message. You go Jackson Pearce. I agree with every word you said.
