Chick Fil A In Lee’s Summit, MO “Busy All Day” And NOT EVEN OPEN YET

The Chick fil A at the Summit Fair shopping center in Lee’s Summit Mo, was very busy on Chick Fil A Appreciation Day. Dozens of tents were set up in front of the restaurant, and families camped out while waiting for the grand opening.

Amazingly enough, the restaurant’s grand opening isn’t until  tomorrow.

The following is an on site report from Mr. Nice Deb:

I spoke with a Chic Fil A employee out front sporting the bright blue uniform. He was on his  first round of parking lot trash patrol. Of course, there was no trash to be seen anywhere. Two young men approached him, shook his hand and asked if they could sell raffle tickets for their team. It looked like the whole team was in the vicinity enjoying the moment.  The Chain was breaking one day revenue records across the country I was told by the employee. A popular Dallas branch where he normally worked set an all time high, early on.

Local police were on hand for the usual crowd monitoring, one cruiser and two uniforms. I spoke with one of the officers who was presently engaging a family in a light hearted exchange. “Been this busy all day”.  This is gravy patrol for them. No protesters in sight just lots of families. A group of 6-8 year olds zoomed by on scooters.  A family of four were picnicking in a tent that had all flaps up. The closed drive through lane became a place for some college kids to toss a football. It was more reminiscent of a church picnic. More restaurants should speak up for family values. Worked out great for Chick Fil A.

The first 150 customers got free chicken sandwiches, tonight, ahead of the Grand Opening.

Chick Fil A Appreciation Day Looking Like A Huge Success UPDATED With My Own Pix

By all accounts, Mike Huckabee’s “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day is  looking like a huge success for the company.

Business Insider has a round up of reports coming in from around the country, thus far:

Knoxville News Sentinel editor/reporter Jesse Smithey tweeted this pictureof a long line of cars at a Tennessee Chick-fil-A:

 Across the country, Twitter users described “mile long traffic to get into chick-fil-a,” stores “so crowded there are cops directing traffic off the highway” and “26 cars in the drive through.” One user, EWErickson, wrote that the “crowd was so big I gave up.”

Earlier, several North Carolina Wendy’s restaurants posted signs saying “We Stand With Chick Fil A.” The fast-food chain, a rival of Chick-fil-A, tweeted atMSNBC’s Thomas Roberts today that the signs were put up by an independent franchisee and have since been taken down. “We proudly serve ALL customers,” Wendy’s tweeted.]

Erick Erickson, editor of the conservative blog Red State, tweeted this picture and estimated the line was “a quarter mile long”:

The Odessa American reported that the Odessa, Texas, Chick-fil-A doubled its profits this morning alone. More than 600,000 people had joined Huckabee’s Facebookgroup and pledged to go to a Chick-fil-A today.

And the day’s only half over. I think the left  hit a nerve with their latest anti-Christian, totalitarian overreach. Americans don’t appreciate it when their religious freedom is threatened.
See  Business Insider for more coverage and several more pictures from crowded Chick fil As.
I plan on going to my closest Chick fil A for dinner. I’ll update with pix, later.
I took the opportunity to do some investigative reporting and eat some delicious chicken (but mostly eat some delicious chicken)at  the Chick Fil A  in West Palm Beach:
I asked the girl at the counter if it had been busy like this all day, and she said it had since 10:00 a.m.
The drive thru line was busy, as well. On my way back to my car I heard a senior yell out his car window to the CBS 12 News cameraman if he was filming for TV. When the reporter  answered in the affirmative, the senior hollered, “GET ME ON CAMERA BABY!!!”
Out on the street, a grand total of two protestors waved their rainbow flag, and demonstrated a total misreading of a well known bible verse.
This is just beyond me. I have no words. Snark doesn’t cut it. This is full-blown f*cking fascism and it’s g-d*mned outrageous.

Some Rumors are More Worthy of The MSM’s Time Than Others

DaTechGuy asks, Can we stop calling the Washington Post a “newspaper” now?

…and officially declare it a propaganda organ?

Mind you the Washington post isn’t citing an unnamed source that has talked to them, they are reporting that someone else (Harry Reid) claims that an unnamed source said something.

I don’t claim to have been in this business all that many years, but I know enough that I can’t report hearsay.

He’s referring to this recent headline from WaPo: Citing unnamed Bain investor, Harry Reid claims Romney didn’t pay taxes for 10 years

Stacy McCain adds:

Instead of doing some, y’know, reporting on this remarkable claim, the WaPo’s Ed O’Keefe lets it go with this bland acknowledgement:

Neither Reid nor his aides would identify the alleged investor, HuffPo reported.

Grant that Reid’s wild accusation — “financial McCarthyism,” you might call it — is newsworthy even if it is absolutely false. And it almost certainly is false, Dan Primack of Fortune says. But is it now an accepted practice at the Washington Post just to repeat whatever politicians say (in interviews with reporters for other publications) without bothering to do any independent reporting at all?

Actually the MSM is quite fastidious about not reporting hearsay or even interesting biological facts  in cases where doing so doesn’t help their chosen candidate.

As I’ve noted on a number of occasions, two anonymous sources alleged that the Obama’s used former Weatherman domestic terrorists, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn as babysitters for their two girls when they lived near each other in Hyde Park. They didn’t want their names revealed for fear of retribution. (Which given the treatment Joe the Plummer got for simply asking Obama a question, is very understandable.) The media was well aware of the rumor in 2008, but kept it under wraps to protect their Precious.

But that’s not all.

To this day, they have no interest whatsoever in exploring the implications of  Obama having card carrying Communist, Frank Marshall Davis as  mentor during his teenage years.

They yawn at Obama’s ‘Born in Kenya’ author’s  bio, even though if he did  not write it himself, he certainly approved it.

They yawn at the fact that it has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt that Obama was a member of the Socialist “New Party” in Chicago, even though in 2008, the Obama camp vigorously denied the truth at their  “Fight the Smears” website, smearing the respected researcher, Stanley Kurtz in the process.

The MSM snickers at Dan Pfeiffer’s fraudulent “Fact Check” re the Churchill bust . That’s just a silly distraction. What about Mitt Romney’s gaffes!!!!

They have no interest in talking to Dr. John Drew who knew Obama as a radical Marxist Leninist who advocated violent revolution back in the day at Occidental college, or John Lott, who knew Obama when he was teaching at the University of Chicago, and claims Obama told him, ‘People Shouldn’t Be Able ‘To Own Guns’.

The President of the United States literally has an enemies list. When Is The MSM Going to Condemn it?

They think it’s amusing that Dem ‘Trackers’ Tape and Post Videos of GOP Incumbant’s Homes Online.

They looked the other way when the  Obama Campaign Disabled Credit Card Verification on its website.

No interest whatsoever in Obama’s sealed records,his questionable Social Security card, Selective Service Card, and birth certificate except to label people who demand answers, “birthers”.

Here’s a fun rumor the MSM pretty much ignored:  In Ed Klein’s book “The Amateur,” he revealed that Friends of Barack offered Wright  “hush money” to shut him up for the rest of the 2008 campaign. Yet another: Obama passed on the Bin Laden kill three separate times at Jarrett’s Urging.

And how about that  Khalidi tape, LA Times? Obama attended the going away party of pro-PLO radical Rashid Khalidi that is rumored to have been an anti-Semitic Jew bash. The LA Times could clear up the ‘confusion’ by releasing the tape, yet they cling to it still.

I understand there’s a $50,000 reward for a copy of that tape.

See, in Obama’s America, you literally have to BRIBE the media to report  news that doesn’t help their precious.


I see some of us are having a little fun at Harry Reid and WaPo’s expense…
