    And I find it REALLY tedious when people bitch about "discrimination" where none exists.

    Yeah, to hell with what the people want. Who needs elections?

    You can keep using your own definitions of words, but you're going to have communications problems.

    How do you define public accommodation laws? Because yours seems to differ from reality.

    The constitution is the supreme law of the land. Which part of that do you object to?

    You keep dodging this question:
    If the 14th amendment doesn't mention anything specifically, does that mean it doesn't apply to anything?
    I don't care about the 14th amendment. The point is that the law isn't determined by the legislature, it's determined by the "interpretations" of activist judges. We as a nation are legislated to by judges.

    That's what bothers me. Not some specific ruling or some specific pet issue.

    The part where the people no longer determine their own destiny.

    It's now determied for us by unelected, self-agrandizing robed blowhards in powdered wigs.

    I don't want judges involved at all.

    Well, the courts care about the constitution and therefore care about the 14th amendment. As do I.

    Your pet laws are being challenged under the 14th amendment. The legislature isn't granted power to decide the constitutionality of its own laws.

    You have it backwards. The legislators have violated the constitution, and the courts are making remedy. They didn't write the laws. They're overturning laws that violate the constitution.

    That's much closer to a factual statement than your last post, although Constitutional issues are but one purview of the federal court system, and certainly not "entirely why they exist."
