I don't see where Mr. Cathy is doing anything any differently than he did 20 or 30 years ago. He is practicing his religion. Years ago, no one had a problem with that. And I imagine that he was not alone in doing so. I suspect that many small businessmen and women lived their faith on a daily basis, treating those around them, workers, neighbors, and customers in a Christian manner. Suddenly this is problematic? Has Mr. Cathy refused to serve anyone in his restaurant? Mr. Cathy has spoken out about his beliefs...is free speech a crime now? I agree with Mr. Cathy. Will you now persecute me?

I think Home Depot and Target are going down for the same reason. It's bad business to put your corporation on the line that way, and a disservice to stockholders.

Great piece. And the parallels are valid, imho.

Global Collapse In Auto Sales Coming Up

We have an archaic excise tax on vehicles here in MA which tends to discourage new vehicle purchase. The tax, instead of being based on weight(heavier vehicles do more damage to roads than lighter vehicles), the tax is based on book value. So, it is front-loaded, decreasing over time, but very big up front. I don't know how many states operate this way, but it discourages new vehicle purchases, and unfairly shifts the real burden away from owners of heavier vehicles, onto owners of lighter vehicles.
