Hey Potto, I know this is a free country (well, used to be anyway) and you have the right to your opinion and the right to let others know what your opinion is. I can judge by your comments, that you probably are into healthier eating and that is fine. I, on the other hand, do enjoy a good burger from time to time and find Jake's burgers very tasty. I don't eat them everyday, and I'm sure Mr. Blount would agree, that would probably not be very healthy. However, just because one has the right to voice an opinion, doing so in such a rude and disrespectful manner shows a lack of character. We all have differing opinions and that is fine. Notice I have not called you moronic, juvenille or any other of the words you consider acceptable in a conversation. How about next time, if you don't want to patronize a particular establishment, you just keep those thoughts to yourself and allow others to make their own decisions without your ridicule. You obviously had an agenda to disparage Jake's with the health inspection report, without fully understanding what the results were. Again, a lack of respect and character. Mr. Blount, keep up the excellent work and God Bless you, your family and employees.

God does not exist. I understand that much.

So - if it is a free country how dare you tell me to keep my thoughts to myself?

I see a civil conversation is not something you want to have. You are one of those people that enjoy making yourself look foolish because you think you are better and smarter and have to prove it on a message board. I'm not going to bother even following this post anymore, so go ahead and have your final say with some rude remark. I'll still pray for you.
