Chick-fil-A airport ban costs San
Antonio $315K and counting: Report

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 1/21/2020 1:08:27 PM

The city of San Antonio has been forced to fork over more than $315,000 in legal fees stemming from its decision to ban Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in the San Antonio International Airport, according to a local report. The city council voted in March to block a proposed Chick-fil-A restaurant at the airport over the chicken chain’s alleged “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.” The ban inspired the Texas Legislature to draft the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill, which Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law in June, and state Attorney General Ken Paxton opened a federal investigation into potential religious discrimination.

Comments:

Lots of tax dollars wasted for nothing, apart from money to lawyers. We've still not spent a penny at Chick-Fil-A since they caved to the Lavender Mob, incidentally, their fake contrition notwithstanding. Fire the creep running their charitable arm and maybe we'll reconsider.

As Hillary said, "At this point, what difference does it make?" This because of CFA's capitulation to the LGBTQ hyenas.

Even after CFA has given up, gone over to their side, funding their homosexual "charities" and rejected the fine Salvation Army.....NOTHING changes. CFA is learning the hard lesson..... No matter what you do to appease them, it is NEVER enough. You CANNOT "make them like you", and it is a fool's errand. Wear your beliefs with pride, and never compromise them. You will not gain your enemy's support and you will lose your friend's support. And this is in Texas. How sad for Texas.

Hard earned taxpayer dollars wasted because of virtue signalling dweebs who feel morally superior to people....who like to eat chicken? Kidding aside, you cannot legislate morality, no matter how right you feel you may be. Look at how Prohibition worked out; 18th amendment, Volstead Act.....led to rise of organized crime in the US that we will never be rid of.

CFA needs to very publicly apologize for their capitulation to the Gay-Stapo, and back it up with very public changes to their policies, and I will officially care again. But that won't happen, and my change from eating CFA 2-4 times a week (sometimes going 20 miles out of my way to have lunch there), to not having had CFA once in the last couple of months, will continue unabated. I'm not boycotting them. I have just lost interest. When you spit on my moral values, that just seems to happen...

You know, if the City of San Antonio had put a little forethought into their RFP, they could have included wording that "restaurants are expected to maintain normal business hours 7 days a week based on inbound and outbound scheduled air service." Makes sense for the City too. Airport restaurants usually pay a royalty fee to the airport operator. If you have a vendor who closes one day out of seven, you are looking at a loss of around 14% in fees for that space. But nobody said that the liberal politicans in San Antonio were smart. They elected Yooo-lian Castro and his dopey twin brother and a lot of other nutty politicos.

Chick-fil-A was just trying to do the right thing and care about everyone as Christians are taught to do. Liberals never do the right thing, in my opinion. No boycotting here. I will continue going to CFA.

Our airport in Denver fought Chick-fil-A but it got in eventually. The lines of customers stretch down the concourse.

Sorry, #9, but when they cut off as un-offensive group as possible in the Salvation Army -- who has never discriminated against anyone in their history -- that doesn't quite match the definition of "caring about everyone" in my book. Nope, not even a little bit!!!

The number of human-caused wildfires has increased in recent decades—sparking a shift in what is 'normal' for the devastating blazes, research has found. The new study of wildfires in America between 1984 and 2016 has found that the leading cause is 'shifting away from lightning and towards human activity'. In the past, the strongest fires were caused by natural ignition types, like lightning strikes or El Niño winds, which also tended to be seasonal and easier to predict.(Snip) To try and explain the shift, the team points to climate change and construction.

A 14-year-old girl who was allegedly drugged and raped after being kidnapped in California was eventually saved by cops—after alerting her friends on Snapchat, according to police. The unidentified girl had been snatched last Tuesday in the San Cruz city Capitola by Albert Thomas Vasquez, 55, who left her “incapacitated” with drugs, San Jose Police said in a statement. He called two friends—Antonio Quirino Salvador, 34, and Hediberto Gonzalez Avarenga, 31—who helped put her in a car, where Vasquez sexually assaulted her before they drove her to a motel, cops said.

More homeless New Yorkers died last year than in any other in the past decade—despite promises by Mayor Bill de Blasio to make their lives better. Homeless deaths from July 2018 through June 2019 totaled 404—a staggering 39% increase from the previous fiscal year and the highest number since 2006, when the city began recording the deaths. Sixty percent died in a hospital. The rest died outdoors or in other places that the city didn’t specify in its annual report, which is mandated by law. The top five causes of the deaths: drugs, heart disease, alcoholism, unspecified accidents and cancer.

Illinois lawmakers are raising questions about the integrity of state elections after the secretary of state admitted hundreds of non-citizens were registered as voters, and could have cast ballots illegally in the 2018 election. In a letter, Secretary of State Jesse White’s office said a “programming error” in a signature pad at driver services facilities led to hundreds of non-U.S. citizens accidentally being registered as voters. The Secretary of State’s Office said the problem has been fixed Tuesday, but state lawmakers and election authorities are just beginning to raise concerns. “We view it as a significant problem," said Matt Dietrich of the Illinois State Board Of Elections.
