    Which reminds me - ate at Chick Fil A yesterday. It was delicious and packed with customers, as usual. They seem to be steadily busier since the big protest thing. I'm guessing all the customers who went there because of the protest discovered how good it is.

    Hobby Lobby? Also go there whenever I can.

    Don't worry Hobby Lobby. Socialists are too busy picking up their welfare checks and generally being leaches on society to shop at your store anyway.

    Guess I'll have to pick up some nick-nacks at Hobby Lobby on my way back from Chik-fil-A.

    Well if they would just make a donation to his campaign and publicly support it, I'm sure they could get an exemption like other companies. :whistling:

    The klinton admin. used selective prosecution/irs audits, etc. as political weapons against those who refused to do a monica and swallow what he wanted to shove down their throats. This is just more of the same by the squatter and his administration.

    Only reason I don't like that store is they're taking all the customers from the store my wife works at on the weekend. The owner is looking to sell the building and close up.

    Didn't Chik-Fil-A just recently reverse their stance to appease the gays?

    If so, Hobby Lobby could be the next Walmart.

    Apparently, they did not.

    But Chick Fil A just basically said they will continue to, "be responsible stewards of all that God has entrusted to us . . . We will continue to focus our giving in those areas. Our intent is not to support political or social agendas.”

    I have never been to a Hobby Lobby - though I will make it a point to shop at one soon (perhaps tomorrow.)

    I've spent quite a bit of money there, and I probably will do so again!

    I found my local hobby shop had very bright paint that works good to highlight sights, and stands up to cleaners extremely well.

    I frequent them if only for this reason. Everybody needs a hobby, even if it is to bug leftists.

    Hobby Lobby is one of our favorite stores. As a bonus it's only a mile or so from Chik-fil-A. tom.:cool:
