so i take it you don't eat falafal or chinese food either?
better not drink vodka while we're at it. during world war 2, you probably wouldn't have had any good beer either.
If I knew the owners of my favorite falafel stand were sending money to an organization I didn't agree with, I wouldn't eat there. But just being of middle eastern descent doesn't mean they support terrorists. They could very well have moved to the US because they, too, disapprove of suicide bombers and airplane hijackers. Same for a Chinese restaurant--the owners are here in the US, after all, not back in Beijing sitting on the Politburo and oppressing the masses. Giddybiscuit and Glitter178 aren't boycotting all chicken sandwiches, just a specific business. Chik Fil A is using their company to make a statement about politics and values, and consumers are free to do the same by taking their money to Popeye's.
careful... gonna get yelled at for digressing from the topic, which is.... talking about how no one has heard anything from USC for 3 months.
Not yelling at you, but just trying to steer the thread away from digressing into a heated debate/argument.
