Chick-Fil-A: Enlightenment or the Bottom Dollar?

Chick-fil-A Austin-TX

Chick-fil-A CEO backs off of his rather stark view of marriage to encompass a more equitable approach of Christian tolerance.  Well, at least that was the jest of his statement although he never quite comes out and admits to any wrong except to say…

“I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.” -Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy

Personally, I would hope that it’s enlightenment but after reading his statement I’m more inclined to admit it leaves a little leeway from an interpretation standpoint.  Was it a mindful statement or something more in line with protecting the bottom dollar.  Only time will tell.  Also, while we’re at it, just think about all those high caloric saturated fats, carbohydrates, and sodium we may be missing out on. To find out some of the pros and cons to consider when making that trip to Chick-Fil-A, click on the following link provided by About.com calorie counter. The sodium content alone is an eye-popper.  Be Smart, Stay Sharp and Buy for the Heart!

#2 BTW: A Millionaire Worth Every Bit

Harris Rosen, millionaire philanthropist

Although this story goes back to April of 2013, this human interest story is well worth repeating.  Harris Rosen, a self-made millionaire who grew up in a rough New York City neighborhood, decided to invest in the hopes of a rough Orlando, Florida neighborhood of Tangelo Park.  Go over to the Today.com website and take a look at what this one man has done to make life a little more meaningful with a little bit of hope and the money to back it.  I only wish millionaires and billionaires ALL over would take this man’s example to heart and learn that people, not politics matter most when exercising real power and authority.  Koch brothers, I mean you too especially.  Link to the full article:  click here
