Why can't there be a way for both of them to lose?
Why can't he just do it the traditional way, let them open but then unleash the inspectors on them to fine the living shit out of them for every violation of the archaic and byzantine Chicago building and health codes until they plaster their windows with Moreno campaign material and write a fat check to his re-election fund?

eta: but what he's doing is blatantly unconstitutional, government sanctions for expressing a political view. No doubt my taxes will be paying the legal bills to defend this idiocy. :x

When I was a young man attending Evangelical Churches, they often encouraged their attendees to shun various large businesses because the owners gave their money to un-christian charities or whatever. I don't think many people bothered.

Nick Gillespie points out:
"As someone who believes absolutely in marriage equality," I said, "there is something absolutely, fundamentally wrong with politicians saying what businessess can set up shop in their cities and where." It's worth pointing out that Chik-fil-A doesn't refuse to serve gays or people who believe in gay marriage, nor do it refuse to hire them (a Chicago franchisee has held fundraisers for gay groups). Chik-fil-A can't be confused with segregated businesses in the Jim Crow South - many of which were forbidden by law to serve black and white customers on even terms.

You know I have been thinking about this and there really IS a way for them to both lose. There are two slightly different scenarios that result in both losing. Both are unlikely, granted, but not impossible.

1) The alderman is successful in keeping them out. Then people get pissed off because of his flagrant disregard of the right of free speech and/or the loss of jobs from preventing the store from opening and they vote him out.

or

2) The Alderman fails at keeping Chik-Fil-A out but enough people stay away that the store can't turn a profit and folds.

Neither of them is terribly likey, I'm afraid. . But neither scenario is impossible either and both would constitute a loss for both sets of dickweeds.

That's one way to restart a PR campaign.

http://www.latimes.com/business/money/l ... 7369.story
Don Perry, head spokesman for Chick-fil-A, has died.

The Atlanta-based company said Perry died "suddenly" Friday morning. Perry, who most recently was vice president of public relations, had worked with the chain for nearly 29 years, according to Chick-fil-A.

#2 is at least possible.

Vote out an alderman? :roll:

As an exercise in sheer political muscle, it’s impressive. But, if you’re a feminist or a gay or any of the other house pets in the Democrat menagerie, you might want to look at Rahm Emanuel’s pirouette, and Menino’s coziness with Islamic homophobia. These guys are about power, and right now your cause happens to coincide with their political advantage. But political winds shift. Once upon a time, Massachusetts burned witches. Now it grills chicken-sandwich homophobes. One day it’ll be something else. Already in Europe, in previously gay-friendly cities like Amsterdam, demographically surging Muslim populations have muted leftie politicians’ commitment to gay rights, feminism, and much else. It’s easy to cheer on the thugs when they’re thuggish in your name. What happens when Emanuel’s political needs change?

Seems chick-f-l is having difficulty keeping enough chicken in stock for all the 'flocking' to every store in every state. I visited one of the local ones here and promptly turned and left for the far less crowded Hardee's. Interestingly, they too had their own 'public relations' nightmare when they announced in a very public fashion a message to the effect, 'fuck you health-nannies. America wants grease and we.sell.grease! Come and try our Angus-beef monstrosities loaded with full-fat mayo and fries fried in real cholesterol'

I think we have our winner. You win a year's supply of tasty cock meat. You may redeem your prize at the YMCA in San Francisco.

I'm not going to look for it, but have you seen the (what I guess was utube) encounter between a Chic-Fil-A drivein window person and an asshole trying to give her grief?

The CFA lady comported herself amazingly well.

It's relevant because some people can't differentiate between Chik-Fil-A as a company and the minimum wage schmuck who is stuck working there. They are angry at the former, but they take it out on the latter. Which isn't cool.

And some people point at idiots like that one as if they were representative of all civil-rights advocates. That's no more relevant than the idiots themselves, except for lulz. Or is there another relevance?
