    I'm selling a hammer, and since you're an ass and apparently have no other choices because you are so oppressed, then yeah, I'm going to price it higher. Fork over the money or get out of my store.

    I think your position is becoming clear, and I will not over pay for a substandard hammer.

    So in your opinion it would be perfectly legal for Sam's Club to refuse service to any particular race or religion?

    Sorry, you only have a right to engage in trade with people that consent to do so with you.

    Good day.
    Did you forget about your oppression? You have to shop with me, so do you want the hammer or not?

    Not if you are selling goods to the public. You don't have a right to deny trade because you think I'm not worthy.
