Oh shut up. You know if a Muslim does the same thing you'd criticise them like crazy. And don't deny it, because I do myself. I criticise all religious fanatics who take their religion to serious and use it to be prejudiced to oppressed groups. Enough with this "belief" nonsense. Believe what you want but don't tell me I'm going to hell because I prefer sausage over ham.

Las Vegas. I do have Mohegan Sun about 1 hour 20 minutes away, but although I'm just a chump change gambler I love the overall feeling casinos, and Vegas has many to choose from. I also love the surrounding landscape, and think the mountains viewed from hotels there are grand looking.

Texas. I can only speak from my experience in having traveled to San Antonio twice, but the largeness and open feeling and how spread out the city is I find intriguing.

Midwest. Driving through the plains, on straightaways where you can see so many miles ahead of you. You can really see the night sky in all its glory.

No need for name calling, it's not that serious. The point I'm trying to make is that I respect people who speak out and voice their opinion or values, especially when to comes to sensitive subjects. Heck I may not agree with them but I do respect them. And of course I'm sure someone will have something to say about this but that is why I support and respect Trump. He speaks his mind and stands up for what he believes in and refuses to have his values and opinions oppressed. I have no respect for racists or bigots or those who hate for no reason, nor do I respect people who just jump in on a trend or protest that means nothing to them. I spoke with a group of black lives matters supporters and they were very respectful and brought up some good points that many should listen to. They truly cared about certain issues and were not afraid to voice them. I don't even like the BLM matter movement but I do respect what many of them are trying to do, especially the ones I spoke to personally. I hope that clears things up.

Back to the topic at hand. Apparently since I can't express my love for Chickfila here, another place that I miss eating at that a can't get in my current location in Waffle House. It's not even the food I miss, however I do love their hash browns and cheese grits, but it's the feeling I get when I go there. Back in high school my friends and I use to go to Waffle House at least twice and week. Sitting in a Waffle House booth with my buddies are some of the best memories I have of where I use to live and would love it if they had some here in upstate NY.

Don't tell people here that you like Chick Fil A. It apparently automatically makes you an intolerant bigot.

I know several gay people who enjoy Chick-Fil-A and would eat it regularly if there were closer locations. I myself have eaten there and am in fact, gay

I'm only jealous of areas that don't get nasty hailstorms. Other than that, I would enjoy it if our hills were actually mountains and I would love the fall foliage the Northeast gets. Overall, though, I love where I live. The wide open spaces and 80 mph interstate speed limits are nice.

I don't think Chick Fil-A is that bigoted. Now all the people who supported Mike Huckabee's Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day on the other hand...

I don't think "jealous" is the word, but there are some things in different parts of the country that I do like:

Utah: I love the rock formations and the colors they are the way the sunlight hits them at different points of the day.

Washington, DC: The history, monuments, museums, and how absolutely beautiful that area of DC is. I love that so much.

Mountains of NC/VA: I love snow, but not too much of it. The perfect amount for me personally is this region.

Orlando, FL: I LOVE the theme parks there (no hating, please lol). My family and I spend about 4 weeks a year there and I love the parks more than I did as a kid. I also love the various species of birds and plants in central FL that you don't see in other areas of the U.S.

I know to some people this list sounds weird, lol. But it's just my personal preferences, no right or wrong answers. I'm enjoying seeing everyone's responses.
