    And, this being America, he has that right.

    Just because a child is being raised by two parents, does not mean it is better than being raised by a single parent.



    It's funny hearing all the conservatives bad mouth the boycott, however, many of them have no problem over boycotting businesses that don't say Merry Christmas.
    While you raise a point in your first quote, I'm still inclined to think life is typically more stressful when only one parent shoulders the burden, especially in this economy.

    First, I'm not a conservative. Secondly, trying to be fair and understanding the 1st Amendment, people have the right to an opinion, and people also have the right to boycott.

    some have certainly come close to espousing that position

    Agreed. It's scary when government starts punishing people for their opinions. It's an encroachment of freedom. One need only look at history to understand how that typically ends.

    I haven't seen any conservative claim that PEOPLE shouldn't be allowed to boycott.

    Sad that some people can't tell the difference between a boycott by private citizens and interference by the govt.

    Or maybe they can and are just being dishonest
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    So Rahm Emanuel says Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values while simultaneously lauding Minister Farakhan for sending his Fruit of Islam troops across the city to fight crime. Farrakhan is anti white, anti Jewish and anti gay. Have there been any plans in the Chicago mayors office to economically punish the Nation of Islam for their views? Of course not. Does anybody really take this PC clown seriously?
