Disagreement over beliefs does not justify reaction
The good news is I allegedly live in the best place to live in New York state. The bad news is that I live in New York State. The state arguably the highest taxed and most corrupt in the country. The state that also tells me how to carry my groceries home. The state that wants me to have marijuana so I don’t care how my groceries get home.
Even worse news is that I live outside Buffalo. The city where the mayor is accused of pay-toplay, cleared by the court buy still chided for bad judgment. The city where a public board, supported by $50 million in taxpayer money is seemingly controlled by the mayor’s lawyer who fires and hires board members and refuses to submit to public scrutiny.
The city where police can’t find their handcuffs with both hands to solve a fourth of the murders but are able to charge high fees in certain city areas for traffic violations and will get huge fees if you are a few minutes late parking downtown.
Now, for the unkindest cut of all. You can’t get a chicken sandwich at the airport because the guy who founded the company donated money to a group he believed in. I thought you were able to do that in America. Must we boycott KeyBank because the terrible Sabres play in their arena?
Chick-fil-A is run by individual owners. They have the best record in the industry for customer service and product quality. The only thing the company insists is that all stores close on Sunday so their employees can go to church, play golf, go to the beach or just hang out with their family.
Can I no longer be satisfied with a business that gives me prompt, courteous, affordable service and a fine product? Must I now research the owner’s background to see if he or she agrees with everything I believe?
That is too much work for me.
