    you have no exercisable rights on property which does not belong to you.
    A lot of those supplies you sell don't belong entirely to you.

    if one store is target, and the other is Walmart, across the street from each other, ...do you have a right to demand target sell you a product, even though you can obtain it across the street at Walmart?

    I don't need to reconcile it. What I stated stands on its own.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Exactly. For some reason liberals think the commerce clause allows the federal government to control the operations of business.

    But that's not what happened in the south before those civil rights laws.

    well I may have to disagree then, then that can be is a public health and safety issue, ...... by people freezing in winter, or roasting in the heat of summer.

    health and safety is perplexing problem, when dealing with people.
