    In this case it is a private home and no license is required. No I have no problem with it. It is their private property, they can bar whoever they wish.
    Sorry...but you have to have a license to operate a bed and breakfast, its no different than a movie theater, which is the owner's "private property" as well.

    Which rights are being infringed upon? If you don't like how a company or business does its business or who they allow in; don't go to that business. Without consumers, the business fails or adjusts to reclaim lost patronage. Quit relying on the government to do everything for you.

    I gave you the answer. It seems like it is you who cannot reconcile your arguments.

    If the bed and breakfast plans on serving any sort of food, they have to have a license or the owner will risk fines and/or jail.

    The right to be free a discrimination. The civil rights laws were enacted to prohibit businesses from engaging in this type of discrimination. Its part of doing business in this country. Why do you expect businesses to be able to operate freely without adhering to the rules that our society sets?

    Not necessarily. That would depend on a locale and all relevant laws regarding them, there may be homestead exemptions in certain areas.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Of course....if a private citizen doesn't want to allow someone in their house, that's their right. But if they are going to operate a business, they have to comply with the laws of our society which prohibit discrimination.

    Thats what makes this country so great.
