So what exactly did Chick-fil-A do again?

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that the restaurant chain’s values “are not Chicago’s values.”

Emanuel presciently told the Chicago Tribune that the North Elston Ave. location of the fast-food restaurant — which doesn’t yet exist, by the way — “disrespect[s] our fellow neighbors and residents” and gave some unsolicited business advice: “This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.” So why not let the franchise owners waste their money on an empty building? Or is Chick-fil-A too bigoted to fail?

Michelle Malkin, Dana Loesch and others would like a few words with the cities’ mayors regarding priorities.

Will Chicago’s attempts at chicken control be as successful as the city’s gun control efforts?



It looks like Boston mayor Thomas Menino has been hit over the head with the First Amendment bat. It’s finally dawned on him that he can’t block businesses for disagreeing with him:

“I can’t do that. That would be interference to his rights to go there,” Menino said, referring to company president Dan Cathy, who drew the mayor’s wrath by going public with his views against same-sex marriage.

Menino acknowledged Cathy’s freedom to express his views, but was unapologetic about his own tough stance that’s become national news.

“Some people might not like these positions, but as mayor of the city of Boston, you can’t run and hide, and I’ll always protect people’s rights,” Menino said. “I’m right out front there and if people don’t like it, I feel sorry for them. But I’m the mayor of Boston and I get elected to make my opinions known.”

Trust us, Mayor Menino. You’ve made your opinions known. Don’t condemn others for doing the same.
