Chick-fil-A announces two more Seattle-area locations

chick fil a lynnwood

People camped out for the opening of the Lynnwood Chick-Fil-A

Liberals hardest hit.

From Seattle Times: The extremely popular (and sometimes controversial) Chick-fil-A chain has announced plans for two new Seattle-area branches: Bothell and Federal Way (exact locations TBA). Kirkland and Puyallup are still slated to get their own outlets for the fast-food fried-chicken-sandwich in 2017 as well. The company had promised an announcement of four to five more Washington branches at the beginning of this year, but no word on any others yet (nor on opening dates for the ones in the works).

The Bellevue franchise of Chick-fil-A opened to camping-out crowds (and subsequent traffic problems) in the spring of 2015, with Tacoma, Lynnwood, and Vancouver, Washington, branches following.

And the obligatory anti-Chick-fil-A statement from the liberal Seattle Times:

If you’re interested in exploring other options, here are four great local fried-chicken sandwiches that aren’t Chick-fil-A. And here’s one more that might just be the best around.



You want marriage “equality”? Then suck up the divorce consequences

Divorce has consequences...

Divorce has consequences…

Jane Lynch’s ex-wife seeks spousal support despite the actress’ attempt to avoid payments

Daily Mail: Though Jane Lynch’s split from estranged wife Lara Embry has gone relatively smoothly, not all the loose ends have been secured: Lara still wants spousal support.

The Glee star announced in July she was legally ending her three-year-marriage to the clinical psychologist, whom she  split from in February.

Lara has now filed documents in Los Angeles Superior Court asking for her attorney fees to be paid by Jane, as well as spousal support – which Jane doesn’t seem to want to give.

The 53-year-old actress previously sought to terminate the court’s jurisdiction to award spousal support to her ex-wife, according to People.

Jane was also the one to file the divorce documents on July 12, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the  split.

But the pair have thus far acted rational about the ordeal, and Jane recently insisted their divorce was ‘not a horrible’ thing. ‘It’s not dramatic. It’s not a horrible thing. It’s something that we’re dealing with,’ Jane told Larry King Live in July.  ‘It’s two people who just decided it’s better to go apart than stay together.’

The former couple are determined to maintain  an amicable relationship for Lara’s daughter, Haden. ‘All’s good. We have a little girl – she has a little girl who’s very dear to me,’ Jane added. ‘She’s 10, and she’s doing  great.

‘We have to remain adults, which we have. We  keep everybody’s – especially Haden’s – good in our mind.’

The pair had got engaged in 2010 and married on Memorial Day the same year in an intimate ceremony in Sunderland,  Massachusetts.


Careful what you ask for…

Suck it up buttercup!


Betty Crocker goes Sodom

betty-crockerGeneral Mills, Inc., founded in 1856, is an American Fortune 500 corporation, headquartered in Golden Valley, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. GM’s food products  include baking mixes, breakfast cereals, yogurt, refrigerated dough, soup, pizza, snack foods, ice cream, soy products, vegetables, and flour.

The corporate giant, with revenue of $14.880 billion in 2011, owns more than 100 well-known U.S. food brands, such as Yoplait, Pillsbury, Green Giant, Häagen-Dazs, Betty Crocker, Cheerios, Trix, and Lucky Charms.

Another way to look at General Mills is as a many-headed hydra.

hydraA year ago, General Mills decided to go whole hog for homosexual marriage. As part of its corporate campaign in support of “gay pride,” the hydra corporation’s Kraft Foods posted a pic of a rainbow-colored Oreo cookie on the Oreo fan page on Facebook, along with the caption, “Proudly Support Love.”

gay OreoIn early July of this year, General Mills announced that Lucky Charms – with little rainbow marshmallows – will be the face for a new gay pride campaign, called #LuckyToBe.

Now GM has unleashed one of America’s most beloved icons, Betty Crocker, to promote homosexual marriage.

Dave Tombers reports for WND, Aug. 4, 2013, that at midnight last Thursday, the State of Minnesota legalized homosexual marriage. So Betty Crocker went all out and treated homosexual couples getting married to free wedding cakes.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported that General Mills and the Edina, Minn., bakery Queen of Cakes donated cakes to the first three couples to marry at Minneapolis City Hall the moment same-sex marriage became legal.

In a blog post titled “Betty Crocker Toasts Marriage Equality With Wedding Cake Tasting,” the homosexual advocacy organization GLAAD said that three homosexual couples visited the Betty Crocker kitchens in Golden Valley, Minn., to sample wedding cakes on Monday, and that “Betty Crocker is performing this donation as a part of ‘The Families Project’. The company states that it wanted ‘to celebrate with these families and mark this moment in the state’s history’.”

The General Mills website “The Family Project” proclaims: “Families are changing a lot. But they’ve still got one thing in common – the love that makes a home. At Betty Crocker, we believe that a family is a family, no matter how it’s arranged. Marriage & Family have changed more in the last 35 years than in the last 350.”

The maker of Cheerios and Lucky Charms then reminds readers that “less than half of all households in the U.S. include a husband and wife,” but “the number of same-sex couples living together has increased by 800 percent since 2000. […] And, to many of us, it seems like a homemaker can only be part of a certain kind of family. But these days, a homemaker is anyone who makes a home.” And although 71% of Americans say they have “old-fashioned values about marriage and family,” the GM website quickly points out that “we” don’t really want to be “old-fashioned,” but simply want to be “together.”

That’s when the company says there’s a “new normal” when it comes to families, a “new normal” that “makes us happy,” because the “love that exists between family members is a lot more important than how they’re arranged.”

The brand manager for Betty Crocker, Laura Forero, told Minnesota Public Radio that the image of “Betty” is constantly evolving, but diversity and inclusion are in the brand’s DNA: “Celebrating these three families today, seemed very appropriate as Betty celebrates all families.”

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has a “Dump General Mills” campaign, which seeks to educate the American consumer about how the profit on food sales is spent by the company.

NOM’s petition to “Dump General Mills,” signed by tens of thousands of Americans, states:

I never thought that by eating Cheerios for breakfast I would be supporting gay marriage. Your decision to pander to same-sex marriage activists has forced me to choose between your food products and my conscience. As long as food is produced by other companies my conscience is going to win out over the desire for another bowl of Lucky Charms. Until you stop supporting this radical social agenda I must, in good conscience, look for substitutes that I can purchase instead of the following brands. – See more at: http://www.dumpgeneralmills.com/?REF=EB120625NANT#sthash.5bSEIVu1.dpuf

Ken Powell2General Mills’ CEO Ken Powell

General Mills’ chairman and CEO is Kendall J. Powell, 59. Powell joined General Mills in 1979; was named president of the General Mills Big G cereal division in 1997; was elected president and chief operating officer of General Mills in 2006; and elected chief executive officer in September 2007 and chairman in May 2008.

In September 2012, at General Mills’ meeting with its shareholders, a few shareholders took issue with the food company’s decision to advocate against the Minnesota’s proposed constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage. During the question-and-answer session at the end of the meeting, one woman who identified herself as a shareholder from Prior Lake said she was saddened by General Mills’ decision to take a stance on the gay marriage amendment. She said the company’s mission should be focused on selling food, not on political issues. Powell defended General Mills’ stance, which was posted on the company’s blog in June.

Wikipedia‘s brief profile on Powell says nothing about his personal life — whether he has a wife and/or children.

College students call traditional marriage supporters “hideous,” “disgusting,” and flat-world morons

Last Wednesday morning, as America awaited the Supreme Court’s decision on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a group of “liberal” Leftwing college students showed just how “tolerant” and respectful of “diversity” they are.

Katherine Timpf reports for Campus Reform, June 26, 2013, that the pro-homosexual marriage students liberally spewed their intolerance and hatred for supporters of traditional marriage.

This female student (see below) calls us “hideous” and “disgusting” and says that she “feel[s] nothing for them at all. I don’t feel bad that they are upset.”

DOMA hideous

Another female student (below) calls supporters of traditional marriage “a meeting of the flat world society” who should get with the times because “It’s 2013.”

DOMA flat world society

Then there’s this self-satisfied student (below, in red t-shirt) who insists homosexual marriage is all about “love,” whereas supporters of traditional marriage are just mean nasty “haters.” I can’t figure out what gender it is. Whether it is a he or a she, he-she can lose some fat!

DOMA haters

College education is such a mind-broadening experience! [Snark]

If these college students are the future of America, we’re even more doomed than we already are.  😦

Expedia pushing homosexual marriage

I saw this ad on tv last night. I thought my show had been interrupted with another show as this “airing” was lasting a long time (3 minutes and 20 seconds to be exact). Turns out Expedia was running an ad pushing homosexual marriage.

Every trip is unique. On this trip, Artie Goldstein travels across the country to attend his daughter’s same-sex homosexual wedding, a journey that will test him, challenge him, and ultimately change him in unexpected ways.

“You come to terms with it and you say, this is the very natural order of things in your life, and it’s suppose to be this way.”

I’ve never used Expedia in my life. Needless to say, I won’t start any time soon.


Homosexual marriage – “get over it”


Fourth Grader’s Pro-Gay Homosexual Marriage Essay Goes Viral

GMA: What is one fourth grader’s argument for marriage equality redefining marriage?  Essentially, “Get over it.”

When the fourth grader’s teacher posted a photo of the essay on Reddit, a social news site where registered users can post content, Wednesday, it quickly took off.

“One of my fourth grade students chose gay homosexual marriage as his topic for a persuasive essay,” the teacher, Reddit user rafa3l2, wrote. “This is the result.  More sense than some adults.”

The  student wrote:

“Why gay homosexual people should be able to get married is you can’t stop two adult’s from getting married because there grown and it doesn’t matter if it creeps you out just get over it.  And you should be happy for them because it’s a big moment in their life.  When I went to my grandparents wedding it was the happies moment.”

“I am not sharing this because of how perfect the sentences are, but because of how clear his thought process is on this specific issue,” the teacher wrote on Reddit. “It isn’t as simple as pointing out mistakes and spelling errors.”

While the fourth grade writer’s essay might not change any laws,  GLAAD, an organization that supports equality for  lesbian, gay homosexual, bisexual and transgender people, fully endorses the student’s efforts.

This fourth grader is echoing what a majority of Americans of all ages now feel, and perfectly represents the respect for diversity that this student’s generation is learning,” Wilson Cruz, a GLAAD spokesperson, told ABCNews.com. “This student is absolutely correct in saying that marriage is a ‘big moment’ for a couple, and creates a sturdy foundation for the rest of their lives.

“Children are wiser than we often give them credit for.”

So two adults can get married? That means a father and his adult daughter can get married? Not a very clear thought process in my opinion.

But that doesn’t matter – the agenda is all that matters. Remember one of the Communist goals for America:

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”


Oregon baker under investigation for refusing homosexual couple

Sticking to his beliefs

Sticking to his beliefs

Did Ore. baker break the law when he denied service to same-sex couple?

Komo News:  A Gresham baker is the subject of a state investigation after he refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex homosexual couple.

Did Sweet Cakes owner Aaron Klein violate the law when he told the couple that he couldn’t sell them a cake because “they were abominations to the Lord?”  That’s what Oregon Attorney General’s civil enforcement officers are looking into after one of the brides-to-be filed a complaint on Jan. 28.

The woman who filed the complaint said she had previously bought a cake from Sweet Cakes for her mother’s wedding. It was fine. But when her partner went back for their wedding cake on Jan. 17, the owner refused.

Klein on Friday denied making the harsh statement, but admitted to a KATU reporter on camera that he did deny her service. “I apologized for wasting their time and said we don’t do same-sex homosexual marriages,” he said. I “honestly did not mean to hurt anybody, didn’t mean to make anybody upset, (it’s) just something I believe in very strongly.”

But beliefs aren’t enough to cover him under state law. The Oregon Equality Act of 2007 prohibits discrimination against people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity. The statute includes public accommodations, such as businesses.

Klein emphasized the importance of his religious beliefs, saying it outweighs his bottom line and the state law. “If I have to be to, I guess, be penalized for my beliefs, then I guess, well, that’ll be what it is,” he said.

The question now: whether his constitutional rights outweigh state statute.  “My First Amendment rights allow me to practice my religion as I see it,” Klein said.

We asked Portland attorney Paula Barran whether this case falls under the 2007 statute. She said it did, but added that she did not know how the owner’s religious beliefs would factor in.

“Statutes don’t get to overcome constitutional protections, so if somebody had a religious-based reason for wanting not to trade with somebody, I think you have a really interesting test case for whether or not a statute like this can apply,” Barran said.

There is no exception under the state’s anti-discrimination law for religious beliefs. Ultimately, the case would be up for a judge to decide.  The woman who filed the complaint declined to comment to KATU until she receives further legal advice.

Of course the comments on the article are calling this man a homophobic. Heaven forbid he have a right to his personal religious beliefs. Being that this is Oregon, there’s no doubt in my mind that the judge will side with the homosexual customer.
