    If you want to open your business to the public, that is exactly what you're going to have to do.

    On this we agree.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I could give it to you for free, but you think I should be your slave, so I'm charging you fifty dollars for it.

    And I bet that makes you feel so powerful. With such wondrous power and virility, one would think a person would not be terrified of black people. I guess no matter how many hammers one over-charges for, they'll always have the big penis. Life is unfair.

    are you kidding?... you are making it emotional, by stating looking "down your nose".........that has nothing to do with rights....only what you feel.

    laws are created for the protection of rights.....not to make people feel good, because someone did something another did not like

    If you weren't a dick you would have gotten the hammer for free, but you couldn't handle that, so fifty dollars it will be. Do you have it or not?

    Yes, I know they are for the protection of rights. Otherwise, people's rights would be trampled on everyday by merchants who don't mind discriminating.

    Why does it not surprise me that a white guy is over-valuing his hammer? Got a big truck to go with that?

    no ....the constitution states the government shall create no law, which makes some people an exception to the law.

    all laws made by government has to apply to all the people equally..........bill gates cannot be exempt from law because he has money......because he lobby's government.
