    I know about 50 personally that would disagree. He and I make realtively the same, because of your healthcare system almost 50% of his pay goes to the Canadian goverment, and then when something serious comes up people die waiting for service. What a scummy country.

I consider aggression to be the initiation or threatening of violence against a person or legitimately-owned property of another. Specifically, any unsolicited actions of others that physically affect an individual’s property or person, no matter if the result of those actions is damaging, beneficial, or neutral to the owner, are considered violent or aggressive when they are against the owner's free will and interfere with his right to self-determination and the principle of self-ownership.

    I would argue that the public accommodations part of the law ought to be done away with, because it is precisely the sort of initiation of aggression I oppose, while the person who excludes someone from his property may be being a dick, but is not initiating aggression against anyone or their property.

    the only things i can think of which government would have a say in private business, is .......if a crime is committed, or health and safety is at risk.

    discrimination laws, are not criminal.

    I want to see actual proof and if he is paying 50% of his income in tax and complain about how expensive healthcare is does he know it pays into other things besides healthcare? If he is paying 50% he is either making a large amount of money where 50% generally doesn't hurt you or has the worst accountant in history or does not know anything his fiances at all.

    What does Canadian vs US healthcare have to do with the question posed by this topic?
    "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."
    "When we live authentically we create an opportunity for others to walk out of their dark prisons of pretend into freedom."

    He's obviously being dishonest, Observer. We both know he is making his own facts as what he's stating as proof is so far from actual reality. LOL, did you know our healthcare directly takes its cut from our pay checks? It's been a while since I have laughed that hard!
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Business is fine, if selective.

    Canadian health care is cheap, by and large, because of no assumed R&D costs. Essentially the world is a free rider on America's scientific, technological, and medical breakthroughs.

    Lots of people don't want to hear that...but...oh well.

    The government pays for a bit of R&D here. Going to a research school.
