    With that philosophy we go back to the deep dark South where they had "Colored drinking fountain", and "White drinking fountain". There is no place in a civilized society for bigotry and hatred that like, period.

    Why should only labor suffer any legal repercussions by quiting and applying for unemployment compensation on an at-will basis in any at-will employment State?

    The employment relationship is at-will. No for-cause criteria should be admissible as evidence in an at-will employment relationship.

    Does not matter.

    IF an employer transfers you to a facility 100 miles away, you do not have to accept that position, and if you get fired, you are eligible for unemployment, that is not what I mean by CD though, but another example.

    Why do you believe adherence to the Rule of enumerated law should not matter? Is it due to income under our form of Capitalism?

    We have laws and a republican form of Government with an emphasis on equality before the law. Why are only the least wealthy being denied and disparaged in their enumerated civil rights on an Institutional basis in our republic?

    What do separate drinking fountains have to do with a person's right to control his own lawfully and ethically acquired money, property, and/or other resources? What gives an employee any right to any part of what his employer owns other than what is agreed between the employer and employee?
