    Hell, there's a porn shop about 20 miles away from me, and in the 24 years that I have lived in the same place, many businesses have come and gone in that specific location around the porn shop, but no matter what time of the day or night, that you pass by, there's always customers.

    It may not be at the level of actually "acting", but this is government not the individual we're talking about here. The government is restricted, the People are not. Politicians say many stupid things, but they cannot threaten government force against the free exercise of rights. That's right out.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    But the difference is, politicians and mayors should know better than to make veiled threats to private business owners.

    Yup. Mayors of Boston and Chicago should have kept their fat mouths shut.

    Should doesn't mean they do. Have you listened to Obama and Romney? As an example.

When you deny an entire group rights because you don't like them, or think your right is superior, and have no just cause, that discimrination is wrong.

    What nonesense...total nonsense...when two men can procreate or two women naturally, come back and post this again and Ill agree with you...

    That is the issue for most of the people involved, from what I'm gathering, in talking to friends, family, and associates.

    If it's a real threat, of which I see no evidence of yet, legal action will be the next step, and I'll join the protest (just don't ask me to eat the food). But until then, this is largely blown out of proportion.
