    And this phantom proposition you're arguing against that all individual rights are enumerated in the constitution came from which part of the conversation?

    Yep - he's from the Right!

    Next!

    you just heard me say it not a criminal act....why do you dodge , and play off what i said?.....glen you disappoint!

    since it is not a criminal act, the government has no authority to act on discrimination.

    laws are formed to protect rights, not the feelings of people.

    discrimination is administrative law.....

    no person gets hand cuffed and booked into jail, for not serving someone.

    And while you're chewing on that one, can you name any time in American history when speech was more free than today?

    Really? Since I was talking about fighting racist, I don't see how it would be considered "giving aid and comfort to racists". Sending them to burn in hell because they were racist and socialist is hardly giving them aid and comfort.

    Correct and Civil Rights are being protected instead of your feelings of prejudice.

    No. You can't. Not while still having any semblance of free society.

    Right because a free society is an oppressed one. Sounds like doublespeak to me.

    if you as a person, commits a crime or health and safety, they can, if they take a right for no reason then they are in violation of the law....do you support that glen?

    civil rights are civil privileges they are not rights,

    governments cannot create a natural right..which right to property is.

    my feelings of prejudice?....is it about me now?
