Alrighty, Chick-fil-A

August 3, 2012

I suppose I should have talked about this much sooner, but ya know I have hours to sleep and Chicken Express meals to eat, so finally here is my shpeel(sp?) about Chick-fil-A...

What's Chick-fil-A?

Nah just kidding with you. For the past few days my Facebook/Twitter feeds have literally been blown up with talk about Chick-fil-A. There are people who are indignant and shoving their opinions down people's throats. There are people who are just annoyed by the whole situation and wish everyone would shut up. There are people who voice their opinion but are too timid and shy to tell everyone how they really feel (or maybe they are just being rational and calm). And there are people like me who scroll through my home feed looking for something else to look at when I realize there is nothing else to look at and promptly get off Face book to continue sleeping/eating my Chicken Express.

While I have an opinion about the situation I understand that someone else has a different opinion than me, and who am I to say that is wrong? This is America, we are people, we can voice our opinions and I think that should be encouraged. Obviously there are going to be people who believe their opinion is the one and only and when aroused to be passionate about the situation can be flat out mean to other people with different opinions.

As people in general we should respect one another's feelings and opinions and even if we think their opinion was created in the mind of the Loch Ness monster, we should respect those opinions. Argue, debate, talk, react, discuss, do it all, in fact I believe that is all encouraged. We would not be where we are today if everyone thought the same thing all the time. But I believe respect is in order concerning this situation.

But again... that is my opinion.

That is all. I'm off to sleep.

Also, Chicken Express sweet tea is better.
