I wish Sanders did as well, given what she did for him in 2016. how do you smear someone without naming them? By being specific enough that people can figure out w...

Chic fil a’s are owned individually and pay a tax to the corporation in return for the use of their name and techniques, iirc. It would be a fee, not a tax, but yeah, that's my understanding of how franchises in general work. But my point stands. Employees, whether on the till or in management, mak...

In both cases, I am trading my money for goods or services from another entity. That service may be making me a chicken sandwich or running a lathe in my shop.

I'm not saying it is solicited I'm saying the thing my point is that not all unsolicited conduct is unwanted conduct and in some arenas there is the abiding assumption that this is something that will be positively received.
