Redevelopment Authority Uses Anonymous Funds to Partner with Private Developer
It’s definitely election season. With municipal offices up for grabs, local bureaucrats are once again practicing the art of ‘being seen’ while touting various city projects as successes. It’s the political iteration of smoke and mirrors; the use of unproven, newly-minted initiatives to obfuscate and deflect criticism from years of failed, negligent policies.
Chik-Fil-A COO Dan Cathy has made headlines, again. He’s pretty well-known for his strong opinions and socially conservative belief system. This time, some governments are holding his opinions against him, in the name of equality. Ridiculous, I know.
If Chik-Fil-A business suffers or grows as a consequence of Cathy’s comments, it should be at the hands of the consumers. Let the people decide whether or not they wish to patronize the restaurant. You never know which set of beliefs the government may seize on next. It could be yours. Needless to say, it would be dangerous to allow the government to engage in such paternalistic oversight.
