And You Can Run and Tell That ... Let the Market Decide

Alright ... I know ... it's been a month since my last blog post.  Don't bitch at me!  I blog for the Music Minute every damn morning, so bite me!  (This scolding was done lovingly <3)

Now, onto the topic at hand.

This whole Chick-Fil-A thing is getting crazy. 

If you haven't heard, there's a Chicago Alderman who doesn't want a Chick-Fil-A restaurant in his ward.  See, Dan Cathy, the owner of Chick-Fil-A, doesn't approve of gay marriage.  I'm not sure what that has to do with fried chicken, but hey ... to each his own, right? 

Anyways, the story is also local as some students at the University of Illinois--Springfield campus are trying to block a Chick-Fil-A from setting up shop on campus.

Antoine Dodson sounds off on the Chick-Fil-A controversy

I take sides with Antoine Dodson! 

Remember the "Bed Intruder" guy? You know the guy who told you to hide your wife and kids? 

Dodson, who is openly gay, says the whole controversy of Chick-Fil-A is stupid. "They make good chicken and they're waffle fries are bangin' when they're fresh and hot."

In my libertarian opinion, the market should decide this whole issue.  What do I mean by that?  Well, if a company wants to set up shop somewhere, they obviously have a product they think will bode well in Chicago (or other areas, like UIS). 

If people don't agree with the philosophies of a company owner, then they SHOULDN'T EAT THERE. 

It's that simple! 

If the market place ends up not supporting Chick-Fil-A, then they'll reevaluate their choice for where to set up shop. 

I've never eaten at Chick-Fil-A, by the way, but I support their RIGHT to sell the public products despite what their owner believes.  I also support the RIGHT of people to choose not to patronize an establishment based on politics. 

It seems that people should have some bigger fish ... or chicken ... to fry.
