    a lend, meaning ....a right to it.

    look down your nose?...............that is an emotional based argument..........laws cannot be made on emotion, because what is wrong to me, maybe right to you, and what is right for me maybe wrong to you.

    laws are to be structured on the protection of rights, not how the public feels about things.

    if laws are based on feelings, we would have no rights.......if I had such a right as you want people to have, ..........Miley Cyrus was be out of show business, because she offends me

    It's law, and it applies to private business when open to the public. It would seem your claim is full of crap.

    Your ability to give a hammer away for free leaves me in the depths of despair. I can only marvel at your greatness.

    Um, transactions should not be made on an emotional basis. Is it so darn hard to ignore your emotions when making a transaction? The law isn't emotional btw

    Yeah, so? The Constitution only ensures that the government treat people equal under the law. My point.

    Where are you getting this idea from? We are people - not property. You are ascribing some absolute right where there is none. And all because you want to be a bigot.
