    I was responding to this "What he created with his labor is his property. If you understood property you know why labor is important here".

    Well, people have to agree to a transaction for it take place, and sometimes their reason for not agreeing to a transaction is justified and other times its not really. Then again, it's not up to me to say what terms they will agree to or not.

My not serving you does nothing to any of your rights. Your forcing me to serve you infringes on my freedom to associate. Unless the business entity is a government made one such as a public corporation no business should cater to those they don't desire to. Its obvious as to why a government should be allowed to have its workers discriminate.
    Gang members are not protected by virtue of civil rights laws. Discriminate all you want.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    the Indians, at first did not lay claim to property, because the concept was alien to them.

    later they sought to keep the land they were on, the government made promises to them but did not protect the land they were on.

    they appealed to government.....but it did not protect their natural right.......another government failure.


    please answer!.......you stated government created a right to property........i asked if Edison created the light blub, ....did the light blub belong to government?................. until they turned the right over to Edison, even though he created it?

    Government creates the right to patent too.

    We've got a long way to go before our civil rights laws protect pirates.

    I'd like to ask any supporter of anti-discrimination laws: Do feel you have the right to violate the person or property of your neighbor in order to force him to do business with someone against his will?
