Chick-fil-A had their grand opening in Poway and the city is buzzing.  People love CFA’s chicken.  Powegians have a new restaurant to enjoy.  There are smiling faces and neighbors meeting neighbors at the big event in town.  City leaders are there to share the event and get a photo op, but are they unknowingly promoting CFA?  What exactly should be the role of local government when it comes to managing the local economy?  Which businesses should the city promote, push aside or make illegal?  We discuss these issues plus also get into the political issues that always revolve around Chick-fil-A and the religious activism of their ownership.

Then we discuss a Trump 2020 No More Bullshit flag proudly hoisted on a person’s property in town.  This gets us into issues about free speech, property rights, sign ordinances and the inconsistency of city officials in terms of how they manage free expression.

We conclude with Trump’s recent “ordering” of businesses to do business with alternatives to China.  This leads us into a discussion of the trade war, TPP and much more.

We also touched on so many topics and people including Smoot Hawley, HOV, EV, Padres, Pete Neild, Mike Polite, North Star, First 100 Campout, Steve Vaus, Republican, gay rights, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Poway, cronyism, marijuana, regulations, central planning, Ray Kroc, Phil Spear, Hamburger Factory, McDonald’s, climate change, property rights, sign ordinance, trade war, international emergency powers act, TPP, trans pacific partnership, blue collar, swing stages, Midwest, China, nationalism, protectionism, Japan, Wharton, trade deficit, automation, Great Depression, Ferris Buehler, Ben Stein, S. Truett Cathy
