    I wouldn't roll my eyes. Doing so would get certain people an instant and loyal clientele.

    Great example of why this is something stupid to suggest. A black mother has ran out of formula for her baby, the baby keeps crying because he's hungry. There is only one store in town open but the store decides it doesn't cater to blacks. Then what John Stossel?

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    But would they dominate your area's economy? There's a difference between, secretly whispering a Black joke to your friend, and making a store only serve one race of clientèle

    I never disputed that. What I said is that you can't force them to like each other. The government doesn't need to be involved.

    Funny, several months earlier it would have been fine to kill the baby, right?

    Domination of an economy is not necessary to cause harm to a community.

    Theres a difference between forcing people to like each other (which I agree will never happen) and allowing problems to get worse (which is a very real possibility)

    What if NO stores were open?

    Actually, I cannot answer that because I don't really have a stance on abortion.

    Are you going to vote in the poll or give your opinion on the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Do you agree with what Rand Paul said in his interview on the Rachel Maddow show?

    I realize you want to make me the issue here, but you need to read the OP and comment appropriately.

    Like I stated above, Somalia is a libertarian paradise, you can do almost anything you want there.
