You recall that Emanuel Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s pal and the smarmy mayor of Chicago, wants to ban Chick-fil-A from doing business in Chicago because its CEO proclaimed his allegiance to traditional marriage.

That’s a massive, unequivocal violation of our right to free speech and our right to freedom of conscience. Patriots and conservatives nationwide declared August 1st as a day to oppose such trampling upon our freedoms and to show support for wholesome family values.

I’ve never visited a Chick-fil-A. I had to find one on their website and peruse the menu. But I wanted to add my small part and went to a nearby outlet for a simple coffee and cookie.

What a sight! Dozens of cars crammed the parking lot. The drive-through line stretched for 2 blocks. The counter was staffed with eight servers, all very busy.

In righteous outrage Americans stood up for our constitutional rights, for those God-given rights proclaimed in our Declaration of Independence. I was moved to joyous tears.

The coffee and cookie were tasty too.
