A major factor [in opposing the proposed Chick-fil-A] is that that this location will not have any indoor seating and will be drive-through only — aside from nice days when people might sit outside. That fact will make it very different from the Brentwood or other locations in that it will add nothing to the neighborhood in terms of a place to go eat and will only serve large numbers of cars in what is already a terrible area for traffic. I think that is why so many of the local residents are against it.

Are you ready for a little extra Cesium in the diet, Darge?

Chick-Fil-A is a born-again deal? I did not know that. It figures, Christ hated a chicken, we know that.

I stopped eating at that place years ago.

Now this raises the question; Why did the chicken cross the road? Their answers?

Sarah Palin: The chicken crossed the road because, gosh darn it, he's a maverick.

Barack Obama: The chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all chickens on the other side of the road.

John McCain: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all chickens on the other side of the road.

Hillary Clinton: When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure right from Day One that every chicken in the country gets the choice it deserves to cross the road, But then, this really isn't about me.

George Bush: We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either against us, or for us. There is no middle ground here.

Dick Cheney: Where's my gun?

Colin Powell: Now to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

Bill Clinton: I did not cross the road with that chicken.

Al Gore: I invented the chicken.

John Kerry: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! It was the wrong road to cross and I was misled about the chicken's intensitons. I am not for it now and will remain against it.

Al Sharpton: Why are all th chicken white? We need some black chickens.

Dr. Phil: The problem we have here is that this chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his current problems before adding new problems.

Oprah: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems which is why he want to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a NEW CAR so that he can just drive across the road and live his life like the rest of the chickens.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

And God came down from the heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And the Chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.

Mick and Paddy were walking in Covent Garden in London. It was their first week in the capital and they were a bit naïve.

'Lord above Paddy, this is a great city,' says Mick.
'Why's that Mick?' responds Paddy.

'Well, to be sure,' explains Mick, 'where else in the world would a complete stranger come up to you, make idle chat, invite you to dinner and then offer you to spend the night at their house?'

'Begorrah, ' splutters Paddy, 'did that happen to you?'
'No,' says Mick, 'but it happens to my beautiful sister all the time.

An Irish kid comes home from school with a writing assignment. He asks his father for help. "Dad, can you tell me the difference between potential and reality?"
His father looks up, thoughtfully, and then says, "I'll demonstrate. Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Robert Redford for a million pounds. Then go ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million pounds. Then come back and tell me what you've learned."
The kid is puzzled, but decides to ask his mother. "Mum, if someone gave you a million pounds, would you sleep with Robert Redford?"
"Don't tell your father, but yes, I would," she replies.
He then goes to his sister's room. "Sis, if someone gave you a million pounds, would you sleep with Brad Pitt?"
She replies, "Omigod! Definitely!"
The kid goes back to his father. "Dad, I think I've figured it out. Potentially, we are sitting on two million quid, but in reality, we are living with two sluts."

But why did the chicken cross the road? According to:

Anderson Cooper, CNN: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.

Nancy Grace: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty. You can see it in his eyes and the way he walks.

Pat Buchanan: To steal the job of a decent hardworking American.

Martha Stewart: No one called me to warm me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

Sr. Seuss: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes, the chicken crossed the road, but why it crossed the road I have not been told.

Ernest Hemingway: To die in the rain, alone.

Grandpa: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road.
Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road and that was good enough.

Barbara Walters: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how is experienced a serious case of molting and went on to accomplish it's lifelong dream of crossing the road.

Aristotle: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

John Lennon: Imagine all the chickens in the world crossing roads together, in peace.

Bill Gates: I have just released eChicken2010, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balanced your checkbook. The new platform is much more stable and will never reboot.

Albert Einstein: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?

Colonel Sanders: Did I miss one?

And I haven't supported Chick-Fil-A since I found out that they are a huge supporter of anti-gay legislation. And if I'm not mistaken, they were also part of the big meeting they recently had here on the issue of the discrimination laws that they're trying to push through.

A ventriloquist is telling Irish jokes in Davy Byrne's pub in Grafton Street, Dublin, when, O'Leary, an irate Irishman stands up shouting, 'You're making out we're all dumb and stupid. I oughtta punch you in the nose.'
'I'm sorry sir, I...........'

'Not you,' says O'Leary, 'I'm talking to that little fella on your knee.'

You know, if I based my consumption on only those businesses that I completely agree with politically, I'd be dead.

Sometimes a chicken sandwich is just a chicken sandwich.

I did not know that brrrrk. I will exercise my right not to eat there.

By: Captain Nemo on 3/17/11 at 9:49

If a company goes out of their way to insult or discriminate against individual by advertising against such individuals, I will go out of my way not to support such business activities.

Take a look at the clothes on your back, the food in your house and the items in your home. Most likely they were made in a sweat shop in China or some other country.

I'll expect you to get rid of all that stuff later today.

And if your conscience is OK with that, so be it. That's the beauty of America. I think it was Dennis Weaver who said, "You can't fight every battle, but you can pick the battles you can fight..... and if everyone did that, the rest would fall in place."

Kieran O'Connor always slept with his gun under his pillow. Hearing a noise at the foot of the bed, he shot off his big toe.
'
Thank the Lord I wasn't sleeping at the other end of the bed,' Kieran said to his friends in Donegal's pub. 'I would have blown my head off.'

Happy Saint Patty's Day!

I went out and bought a green sweatshirt...I had no green clothes at all...now I'm covered. Getting ready to ride the big thumper...it's like over 50 degrees out and I gotta ride.

Here is a link to an RT video that features a US expert on nuclear plants....quite frightening...hope he's wrong:

Dr. Galen 'Doc' Adams: What's the matter with you this morning?
Chester Goode: I got a pain, Doc, right in there...

Dr. Galen 'Doc' Adams: Oh, well, why didn't you come upstairs?
Chester Goode: Oh no. Oh no, I couldn't do that.

Dr. Galen 'Doc' Adams: No, you'd rather stand out here in pain all day, wouldn't you. You'd rather hang around hoping to catch me on the fly than come up and make a regular visit.

Chester Goode: Doc, it ain't that. I just couldn't climb them stairs, the shape I'm in.

Dr. Galen 'Doc' Adams: And the pain... it's so bad you couldn't bear to put your hand in your pocket for the two dollars you'll owe me, could you?

By: Loner on 3/17/11 at 2:30

Had a sweet ride....64 degrees out there....the big thumper started with a little coaxing; but she came to life with a bang... I blew the cobwebs and carbon out....yee haw!!

Out of curiosity, Why don't ya'll just email each other ?

By: Funditto on 3/17/11 at 3:20

cause we don't know who each other are.

By: budlight on 3/17/11 at 4:09

I like Chick fil A; and I think being closed on Sunday is why they are so successful; plus their good quality fast food.

By: Loner on 3/17/11 at 4:16

Excellent reply, Funditto.

BTW, you get the Loner Award....your 4:20 post was perfectly timed....party on.

PS: TCB, you are welcome to join the NCP Lonely Hearts Club....just chime in.
This is a blend of chatroom, focus group, news feedback mechanism and sounding board. it's part of that "Global Village" that Marshal McLuhan envisaged. I live in Western New York, on the Niagara frontier. Thanks to the internet, I now have friends in Nashville....and some folks who are not so happy to have me sitting at the table...oh well.

Posting here keeps my brain firing on all eight.....I'm old school; but trying to hang in there.

And you?

Just compose a rant and submit it, we'll give it a chew.

By: Loner on 3/17/11 at 4:25

What do they do on Sunday? The slaughtering, decapitating, plucking, gutting and dismembering? Oh, they are a holy bunch....just a'pluckin' and a'guttin' fer the Lord!

From Wikipedia:

"Chick-fil-A (pronounced /tʃɪk fɪ'leɪ/) is a quick service restaurant chain headquartered in College Park, Georgia, United States that specializes in chicken entrées ]and is known for promoting the company's vision of Christian values. Though long associated with the southern United States, where it has been a cultural icon, the chain has expanded into more of the country . As of March 2011, the chain has 1,546 locations in 39 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. It plans to expand to many northern states throughout this decade." (end of snippet)

Yep, Christ hated a chicken....who knew?
