Terrorizing Chick-Fil-A

What is troubling to me it that the mayor of a city (the murder capital of the US) is using his political office to threaten and punish a business for the political and religious beliefs of the company’s executives.  This is patently illegal and fascistic – but right in step with the liberal left’s (starting with Obama’s) response to anyone who disagrees with their ideas: no matter how goofy.  It is their utter and self-righteous intolerance that makes them so dangerous and obnoxious.  The idea there can be only one correct idea about same sex marriage is lunacy.  Here we have basically a brand new idea that is inconsistent with virtually all of human history (apart from the late Roman emperor who married his horse) being elevated to a position of such sanctity that merely saying you disagree is a crime.  Where is the good old gang of four that terrorized China when you need them?  They seem (classically) liberal compared to the intolerance of the new liberal.  What makes this truly ridiculous is the way Chick-Fila operates.  There is one down the street from me.  There can be a line of 50 cars at lunch and you will be served almost immediately.  That’s how efficient and well trained the staff is.  But then, that’s just one more thing that annoys liberals: a well-run business that doesn’t need an Obama bailout.
PS: Suppose that the mayor of a city refused to allow shops with United Colors of Benetton clothing to be permitted because the mayor thought that their advertising promoted inter-racial marriage.  What would the “liberal” reaction be?

No CoPay Does not Mean Free

Living in a country in which liberals have dumbed down education to the point at which we are surrounded with ignorant numbskulls can be exasperating!  The president proclaims that sex accessories such as birth control pills and “preventive” procedures such as colonoscopies are to be provided by insurance plans without even a modest copayment.  The idiots that swim in the sea of stupidity think: free stuff.  Isn’t Obama a great guy!  NOTHING IS FREE.   Ordering that selected procedures, products or   medical services have no copay is simply cost shifting.  When selected copays are removed then either insurers reduce other benefits or raise premiums —or taxpayers foot the bill.  Somebody is paying.  As with everything this president ordains economics is replaced with politics.  The votes of those receiving the no copay benefit are purchased with money from others.  While this may seem reprehensible and immoral, it is the second play in the liberal political playbook (after racism).   The tragedy is that the suckers being conned (those paying for these “free” goodies but not receiving them) are too dumb to realize that someone is paying and the “generosity” of the anointed one is sleight of hand.  Wouldn’t it be refreshing were the hustler-in-chief to say to the American people: “I know what’s best for you.  And what’s best for me. Certain medical goodies should be free to certain people whose votes I want.  The rest of you will have to pay more for your coverage.  Hey, that’s life in Obamastan. Later maybe I will give something to you.”
