Chick-Fil-A (located in Costa Mesa, California)
Growing up in Southern California, I’ve been eating at Chick-Fil-A since I was a little kid. Lord knows what they do to their chicken, but I’ve always found it to be delicious. For a fast food restaurant, I can think of many memorable experiences there and that is a testament to their food. I’ve known for most of my life that the chain is owned and operated by conservative Christians. While their beliefs are dramatically different than mine, I agree to disagree. Since I moved to New York (where there is only one Chick-Fil-A and it’s located in the NYU cafeteria, thus making it terribly inconvenient to eat at), when I visit my family in California, one of the things I look forward to the most is eating at Chick-Fil-A. Hell, I enjoy their food enough to take photos of the sign, just to make all my New York friends jealous!
While they make scrumptious fast food chicken, somehow the CEO of Chick-Fil-A has decided that he needs to get up on a soap box and tell the world – NOT about chicken but about what God will and will not accept in regards to marriage. If you put all the hate aside for just one second and you analyze this: “A fast food chain, whose food at best is UNHEALTHY for you, is preaching about family values as directed from God – SAY WHAT?!” you’d think the entire world would laugh in their face. Welcome to 2012. While wars are being fought, while the world is in one of the largest economic crises of all time and while technology is growing at an exponential rate thus giving more power to the people, the media and conservative politicians are taking to the streets to publicize the views of a motherfucking fast food chicken chain! WOW!
So here’s what I think the real issue is amongst these conservatives (not just at Chick-Fil-A, but across any conservative institution that tries to tell you that they are right and you are wrong for your innate feelings): When it comes to sexuality, which is an infinite concept – you cannot put a label on it. Trying to capture an infinite concept really pisses people off – because you CAN’T! That really makes people’s egos shrink and we all know that most people have bigger egos than penises. Let me elaborate on my earlier concept. It’s entirely plausible that a gay male would have sex with a female, just for the hell of it (if the right situation came up), but make no mistake about it, it would mean nothing. It would not make the person necessarily bisexual; it would just mean that the person is open to experimentation. One of the advantages of being gay is the fact that your world view is extremely liberal- and why? BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT!!!!! By keeping yourself open to the possibilities, you are not limiting yourself to a potentially great thing. At the end of the day, a gay male is into being with guys. On the other hand if you give a conservative straight guy a 6 pack of beer, suddenly their entire sense of values changes. Whether they act on it or not is a different story, but the fact that those thoughts could even pop into their heads somehow drives them up the wall. If a straight man thinks about getting jiggy with another man, it doesn’t mean he has to define his sexuality in any other way than he is “curious.” We’re all curious. Sexuality is a curious concept. It’s INFINITE so there’s no sense in trying to define it. What works for one person may not work for another. There’s nothing wrong with that. We all know that many people want to flaunt what they’ve got, just to fuel their ego. Hate to break it to you conservative straighties, no matter how hot your wife is – US GAYS DON’T GIVE A FUCK! Flaunting what you’ve got is not going to make us jealous and give rise to your ego. It’s not going to happen. Why does that drive you crazy? Can’t we all just get along?
These conservatives are so afraid of their own imagination, they are willing to wait in extra long lines to eat unhealthy fast food chicken just so they don’t have to deal with their own curiosity. You’ve seen all the media reports about the gay employees of Chick-Fil-A ‘breaking their silence,’ and you’ve seen all the video footage of lines wrapped around the block for people to effectively clog their arteries, but has anyone ever come out and said “Sexuality is nothing to be afraid of.” The answer is YES. On According2g.com. Turn off the media and turn on your mind. Even if it’s to entertain same sex thoughts.
Shame on you Chick-Fil-A for promoting hate instead of love. Shame on you media for giving this story ANY attention. There are much more serious issues at hand in the world. Have you heard the word “Monsanto” (who has effectively poisoned the ENTIRE world’s food supply – look it up if you don’t believe me) brought up even ONCE during this whole scandal? Of course not. Take a look at the Bible and let us all know where Jesus talks about discriminating against people for living differently than you. While you’re at it, show us where Jesus talks about loving thy neighbor as thyself.
Don’t be a chicken!

Sunflower Seeds by Ai Weiwei at Mary Boone Gallery in New York. Now showing through February 4, 2012.
As Chinese artist Ai Weiwei did at the Tate Modern in London in 2010, his porcelain sunflower seeds sculpture has made its way to New York’s Mary Boone gallery. If this doesn’t make you re-examine the term “Made in China,” what will?

It’s stories like this that make me say “when there’s blood on the streets, we had it coming!”
It’s 2012. Things in the world are more messed up than ever. People are losing everything due to a really horrible economy. The tension across the world is causing Mother Nature to react with more natural disasters than ever and there’s a feeling in the air that something really bad will happen before anything gets better. Though it’s been obvious all these years, people are starting to protest the fact that our governments and news media are lying and have been lying to our faces. Better yet, people are starting to stand up to it. You’d think this global feeling would put politicians on their best behaviours as it seems their days in the sun are numbered. You’d think that world leaders would get together and try and make a better world for the people they are supposed to be protecting. Not so in Indiana.
US Senator Vaneta Becker from Indiana has NOTHING BETTER TO DO than to gain a little press by trying to address her version of the worst atrocity known to man – rock stars altering the lyrics to the “Star Spangled Banner.” She hopes to impose a fine if people get the words wrong to this time honored classic. The fact this even makes the news is ridiculous in light of the REAL problems going on in the world. The fact that the people of Indiana don’t march right over to her office and depose her INSTANTLY just shows that people are still sheep. Just give the masses something to suck on and they’ll go away. People are waking up, they just need a leader to follow. It’s gonna happen Vaneta, whether it’s to you or one of your colleagues and on that day, I hope the last sounds you hear are groups of people singing the words to this archaic song incorrectly right in your face! You ought to be ashamed of yourself! And tax payers, don’t forget, you are spending a good chunk of your paycheck to let people sit around and debate something this unimportant. It’s time for a change!
Pass it on….

Roger Waters - Street Artist.
Sure, we all know that Roger Waters is a member of one of the greatest rock groups of all time – Pink Floyd. But did you know that he’s also participating in a street art project? To promote his upcoming solo tour of The Wall, Waters has designed a Banksy-style campaign where quotes from Dwight Eisenhower are being put up randomly on walls in major markets in the US. The twist: the quotes are written in the Wall font. The above picture says: “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed those who are cold and those who are clothed.” – Dwight Eisenhower. This project has backfired a bit as one of Waters’ crew posted over a beloved Elliott Smith mural in Los Angeles. Tear down the wall?
