i went and got a chick fil-a sandwich yesterday, not because i am opposed to gay marriage (indeed, my view is that gay marriage should be compulsory), but because the idea of mayors trying to get rid of businesses because they don't agree politically with their executives is frigging insane. 'they don't represent chicago values': just as though chicago were a collective consciousness and it happened to be rahm emmanuel's. funny how for a politician 'all of us together' means 'me.' that's the alternative to individualism, i guess.
wait didn't these obama-types just come out for gay marriage a half hour ago? now they won't do business with anyone who doesn't agree with their brand-new position, which is a fundamental part of their identities and those of all of us.
yo the place was crowded.
