    Your idea of fairness is so warped that I don't even think explaining fairness to you would be effective no matter what was said.

    The reason this is not an adequate policy is that any business owner should be able to refuse service to anyone for any reason.

    Um...no. I just think that "fair" is a crappy way of writing legislature and running economy. It's subjective. What you think is "fair" is not going to be fair to someone else.

    I would rather use rationality, science, and logic to predict and accept how things are, instead of forcing everyone to the oppression you personally think is best.

    Because I'm being a smartass.

    Do you have a url for the claims you've made above so that I may check on the validity of them?

    When I first read this bill I thought it was off base.

    When I first posted in this thread I mentioned that I thought it would open the door to too many shenanigans.

    After reading through this thread I've changed my mind and I don't think it goes anywhere near far enough.

    Useless and short sighted posturing. Arizona is developing quite the reputation for these types of stunts unfortunately.
