    Well reality has some bad news for you.

    ???

    The people that want to use the property do not have ownership of anything they are trying to gain access towards.

    who is stopping the firing process!? thats right nobody, whats nonsensical is how dishonest your statement is.

    I can play too, so you want a person to be able to fire your wife, sister, grandmother, nice etc for not giving them BJ?
    thats cool to each his own.

    "us guys" do not, we care about your wife, sister, grandmother, nice more than you do it seems

    No disagreement here whatsoever.

    But you called Henrin and I "racist" and "bigot" because you disagree with us about whether or not someone has the right to be such a bigot, and that's patently unfair.

    I hope you can see that now.

    I do bleed for those who want to put prejudice over qualifications. Truly. But I think the more we lean towards the qualifications for the job, and less of who looks like me, the better we'll be overall.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    ?? I'm saying they can pick whatever they please.

    I don't consider the voice of the government in such matters justified.
