If all discrimination is bad (as many with your attitude have said) then if you refuse service to someone that can not pay for your services, then you would be guilty of discriminating against the poor. If you do not like the way this guy does business, then go into his community and open your own bakery and beat the snot out of him by serving all that come through your door.

Anti-discrimination laws were only supposed to apply to governments and not private businesses as they were an out shoot of the civil rights era. Once they were expanded into private businesses then things have gone wrong. A PRIVATE business can pick and choose their clients from those that present themselves but a GOVERNMENT must serve all the citizens equally and fairly. If I wish to reduce my client pool by not serving gays I will have one of three outcomes; 1) I go under, 2) I survive with smaller client list or 3) I fold to pressures of the market and serve all. If #2 happens, a competitor comes in and steals my under served clients away from me and they profit from my decision. Look at that, problem solved without government intervention.
good job hammer, you taking risks for refusing service, but its your risk, your biz and your decision...
small big owner here...

True, but the limitations on Federal power are found in Article 1, Section 8 that stipulates only the powers that can be exercised by the congress. Since (in theory) the executive can only execute the laws passed by congress, the limitations on congress ARE the limitations on the executive branch. That kills most of the executive branch agencies if the authorizing legislation is repealed or found to be extra-constitutional by the courts (their only power under article 3). I personally would not hold my breath on any of this.

What?! A historically ignorant progressive! Impossible as they are smartest creatures to ever walk the Earth! Just ask them and they will tell you so!

I would rather have incidents like this than the riots and burning cars that happen in Paris all the time in the “ethical” neighborhoods (once every couple months or so). There are areas that the local cops do not go into nor do they answer calls for. They actually warn you about those areas that they have abandoned. But covering that would hurt feelings so we can not have that.

Welcome to the Thug-Ocracy! S&P down grade the national debt, charge them with a crime. Someone criticize you in a movie, charge them with a crime. This is sounding more like the Wilson/FDR/Lincoln administrations with the political motivated criminal charges. What’s next? Political motivated “Disappearances” without a trial (FDR and Wilson pulled this crap too)

These discrimination laws have morphed out of their original intent. They started aimed at the government due to experiences in the Civil Rights era with GOVERNMENTS doing the discrimination activity. Over the decades the governments have aimed them at the people which is backwards, IMHO. If a business does not want to serve someone the business will either continue on with a smaller possible market, fold to the market and provide service or go out of business. GOVERNMENTS are the only entity that MUST serve all the people no matter what. Business can and should discriminate if the owners wish to do it. I am not advocating for them to do so (makes poor market sense to artificially limit ones potential customer base) but it is their right to do it.
Aye, and the look like Close Encounters of the Third Kind in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. In the FLAKEYS, they dig into the coral and don't produce the hills. Then they swarm out and bite and sting everyone at the party. Sneaky little buggers.

Is it bad that every time I hear about some “Social Outrage” that results from insults or violent actions against a protected class that I do not believe it? I look at each of these stories and think, BS, they are just trying to “start a conversation” crap. Maybe I am just getting old and crotchety but I look at everything as false unless I can verify it with good data/video/audio that at least looks believable.
What do you believe? I don't quite follow your statements. you don't believe this story happened???

I live just south of Seattle and it has already happened. The WEEKEND AFTER they put these signs up, there were 2 robberies at supporting stores. They did not make the front page of the papers or the newscasts locally but you can find them in the police blotter for about 2 days and then they were scrubbed. Some of the stores that were participating have pulled the signs down since it makes them more of a target.

So, the unions and the OWS folks said the same and worse and they said it multiple times. I am pretty sure that some of those union folks had CCWs and I have not heard of any of those folks getting their permit pulled. This is very concerning. But this is just like that tool Gregory not getting charged with a weapons violation in DC, if they like you, they ignore any pesky law that gets in your way. We are no longer a nation of laws but of men.

I thought the UN was supposed to stop this stuff. Oh Wait, they are only there to stop CONSERVATIVE voter fraud. Progressive voter fraud is just fine.
The UN folks were wearing NAACP uniforms like as in they all wear the same uniforms as in UN (iforms), they can turn them in side out they'll still look the same.
beside the fact that they cover communists. But what really got me that it was in TEXAS!!!

What is wrong with the progressive mind that says things like this are a good thing? We see this all the time with the Gays and Minority communities staging “attacks” and then reporting falsely of the attack. When they get caught it is always to “start the conversation”. WTH?! A conservative does this and they are kicked out of most conservative organizations that I know of and the police lower the boom on them. Libs just skip of yakking on their Obama-Phone about what they did for the “Cause”.
Some white guilt laden progressive somewhere will still blame white people for it anyway. They'll say she felt so oppressed so felt she needed to immolate herself to get attention. That she may have committed the act, but white people drove her to it.
Wouldn't put it passed J.Jackson&Jr., Screwie-Lewie, and many other FALSE-LEADERS working for the WHITE OLD-WORLD PROGRESSIVES FROM OVERSEAS which WETHEPEOPLE came here to get away from!!

So let me get this straight. They endorse Obama (maybe not directly but it sure seems like it) and then they have determined to monitor the polls. This is to prevent “conservative vote suppression”. Why are we funding or even listening to these goons? The UN needs to piss off.
October 8, 2012 at 3:38pm
This was done by the Clintons in their day and the Obamas. Why does this surprise people? Progressives love to write laws but can not be expected to follow them (Turbo Tax anyone?).

How is it deceiving the boy? Each meeting, when I was in scouts (made Eagle), we repeated the pledge which included the phrase “morally straight”. If the kid was confused then his parents or teachers are to blame by not comprehending basic English.
Bottom line is that if you want to advance in any organization, you have to toe the line or leave.

I hate to say this, but as an MP in the military I was told the same thing. A contractor kept coming on a research station (all classified projects) with illegal aliens. After we busted all of his workers for the third time in a week, we were told they were off limits. We even caught a couple taking pictures of some of the communications gear and barracks on the base! If I could not do my job, what was the point. This was one of the reasons I left the military.
BTW – This was back when Bubba was in charge and I was stationed in the Washington DC military district. Do all progressives behave the same way?

What gets me is that people complain about “Assault Weapons” (rather nebulous term) about being not “possible for the founding fathers to have seen this”. Back then CANNONS were legal for civilian ownership. Whatever you could afford, you could have. Even back in the civil war, private citizens purchased cannons and small arms and formed companies on their own, on both sides of the conflict. I have found evidence that this occurred during the Spanish/American war also.
If you think that the populace of the US is for gun control, propose and amendment to the constitution to overturn the 2nd amendment. Since you can not garner those votes then you pass gun control legislation (unconstitutional IMHO, but I think the NFA is unconstitutional also) and regulations. If you can not get your way, then you should freely choose to not purchase nor participate in any of the arms industry, including your ARMED private/governmental protective forces (I am talking to you Bloomberg/Moore/etc..). Until then, buzz off.
Yes, the NFA is UnConstitutional. Yet it was passed with full support of the Congress, under Roosevelt....Democrats All!
National Income Tax.....Democrats
US involvement in WW1....Democrats
1932: Roosevelt and "New Deal" (progressive Socialism).....Democrats
National Firearms Act.....Democrats
The list goes on and on.....The Democrats are at the base of EVERYTHING that has turned America into the hellhole it is today.
Let's look at how well the government has done in enforcing laws against illegal drugs?
Not so well. Druggies still buy, dopers still smoke, pushers still push, smugglers still cross the border and the drug cartels still pay candidates in the US for the rights to cross that border openly.
So when something is made illegal, those who use will use, those who profit will still profit and those who make the item illegal will always get paid by the criminals to look the other way.
All this just so they can get re elected and continue stealing our wealth, whether it be taxes, wall street or the Federal Reserve.
It's a wonder we still have a pot to piss in after all these years.

I just did a Google search to try to find any mention of militia during the Bush administration and drew a blank for domestic news stories. I do remember that during the Clinton administration there were several reports of them (outside of the Waco and Ruby Ridge incidents). Is it me or is it during only progressive administrations that this stuff is dredged up like the “Hidden terror of the JEW!” (Germany ala 1930′s) as a domestic boogie man?
