politics and chickens.

i am not an inherently political person. i dabbled with it a few years ago, but mostly, i just stay away. i dont like watching any sort of election-related anything on tv, i steer clear of political conversations at parties, and if i do happen to get trapped in one, i rarely say anything. i have a few basic opinions of what i believe is important and right, and i try to make informed decisions based on those beliefs before heading out on election day to vote for one candidate over another. the thing is, for the most part i just prefer to keep these opinions to myself, especially on the internet.

so now that you have that background information, i want to tell you that i did a mildly political thing today: i went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch. this in itself is no big deal, really. i've eaten a lot of Chick-Fil-A over the years, ever since i got my first high school job there. but since this particular restaurant has found itself in the middle of a ridiculous political sh*tstorm, suddenly my chicken was making a statement today. and it was a statement i was happy to make.

but for clarity's sake, i'm just going to throw a few things out there.
i do not support: hate, discrimination, or bigotry of any kind.
i support: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, ethcial business practices, Biblical family values, and tasty chicken.
