    Business owners are citizens and private property owners.

    Their medical coverage is the worst. My company is global and our associates there come here for medical even though they have to pay the extra taxes there. It is sickening some of the stories I have heard about there.

    You're assuming I had the choice of whether I was vaccinated or not as a child.

    Medical coverage is not written into our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it is something we take every pride in and people will fight tooth and nail for it. I hear far more good stories than bad and all my experiences and those of my friends have been all been good. Have you actually read our Charter of Rights and Freedoms?

    And what do you do when you approach the front door of a Starbucks you'd like to enter?
    If your answer to those two questions is not the same, you have implicitly recognized the difference between a public accommodation and a truly private space.
    Exclusionary means the owner has control over use of the property--the owner can exclude (or not) whoever he wants. Private property is always exclusionary by definition. So public accommodations law is really just a way of violating property rights by prohibiting full exercise of the exclusionary component.

    NO, but I have been to countless funeral for friends whose relatives died waiting for surgery. I find comfort knowing that won't happen to me or my loved ones here.

    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.

    I know no one and have not heard of anyone who has done so. Our system is one of the best in the world and we will do anything to keep it and it's also cheaper than yours. You might also want to read it here then.
