I'm all for banning smoking in restaurants (I cheered when Virginia adopted the law), but the soft drink ban is going a bit to far imo.
Yeah I'm pretty much for banning things that hurt other people, not yourself.

Coffee is protected by law. Well, it's protected in my industry.  Federal law requires the company provide coffee or tea for the ship to be sea worthy.

 
Ugh...I can't stand either.  I need my caffine to be carbonated. :(

Of course, I'm guessing that law was passed before there were other sources of caffine?

Probably. I think it was the 1920 Jones Act, but it could have been earlier.

Off topic but I recall one deployment where a young supply officer only loaded out enough coffee for 45 days and we were deployed for 90.  The boat went almost three days before they found previous stores of it to finish the deployment but that JO (Junior Officer) caught a lot of flak over that.  

You never realized just how much coffee is used until it was gone.  Bug Juice just didn't cut it for the crew.

On the coffee machine in the staff lounge where I work, there's a hilariously wordy note taped over the on/off switch that reads something like "Never, ever turn this off ever."  Because if you do...it takes FIVE MINUTES for the machine to warm up again in the morning!!1!  ;)

Yup, it's why I don't eat there. Them and Cracker Barrel. I'm gonna take my lesbian money and go spend it in a lesbian fashion somewhere lesbian else. And highly resist the urge to wage a glitter-filled rainbow water balloon fight at Chick-Fil-A HQ.

 I am so game! Lets's make a date and do it on a mass scale! My child goes to a private school and they have spirit night where they all go eat at chik-fil-a. My girlfriend and i are definitely not their favorite people right now bc we refuse to go. They tell us that the only difference between us and them is we wear our sin on the outside. ugh some people...

And honey, you are fabulous doing it. Trust me. I'm a gay man stuck in a lesbian's body. (I don't even know how that works.)
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

I must have that look right now, as I'm trying to puzzle through the phrase.

What--like the equating of pedophilia with homosexuality? (Grrrr...)

So having read this one, I'll give him that no public official should be trying to ban Chick-Fil-A (the *stupidest* name in the world) for its stance. On this forum, anyway, that was pretty much everyone's immediate reaction.

And I think everybody on this forum pretty much immediately got it right in terms of individuals deciding not to give Chick-Fil-A (one paragraph later, *still* the stupidest name in the world) their money. Nobody would give me grief for deciding as a black man not to give my $ to a business that funds the KKK. Nobody should be surprised if I and other people--gay, straight, or other--who see things my way refuse to give their money to a business that funds organizations that seek to keep me as a second-class citizen.

The author doesn't seem to get that. In either direction.

But what really irritated me (besides pedophilia = gay) was, "Let's have a polite conversation."

OF COURSE he's all benign about it; he's got nothing to lose. As same-sex marriage passes, he still has the right to marry a woman, isn't being forced to marry a man, won't see his marriage declared null and void by the fed'l gov't, and his church won't be forced to perform same-sex marriages.

Meanwhile, as this serene discussion proceeds, he and his kind are busy in the political sphere trying to deny me and mine all the rights he embraces for himself.

The ONLY way he gets credit from me on the "let's be civil" ground he's trying to stake out is if he says, "My church will not perform same-sex marriage. We don't care what the government does, because that's not our business."

THEN we can talk.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs
