    Right?

    Never mind that it was a hypothetical, not what he'd actually do . . .
    I don't believe he's racist, however I do believe he is wrong and I wish him a long life.

    I think the preferred term is "needs to be [eliminated/removed]"

    That puts me in the category of Ahmadinejad, Glenn Beck, that guy who took the last donut with sprinkles, and every single other person who has ever done anything that displeased vader in any way.

    Ahminajihad does need to be eliminated... I do not eat donuts and I am not the monster you paint me to be. I have my opinion .... the greedmongering republicans have theirs.

    I think this whole thread addresses the idea of "Should it be illegal." I say no. Person to person interactions were intentionally left out of the Constitution. When the government intervenes in those transactions, they grant one person rights to another's property against their will. Not to mention it directly infringes on the store/property owner's right to free speech and expression. That is the real infringement according to the Constitution. If someone wants to be a racist they should damn well be allowed to. If we are going to choose not to protect the unsavory aspects of our founding documents we might as well throw the whole thing in the incinerator.
    From the ashes.

    What does anything in this thread have to do with Republican? You hate their greed or whatever... That's great. Go grind your axe somewhere else.

    I have to disagree. If I am offering goods, services and housing to the public, it still does not give you the right to my goods, services and housing. You still have no right to say how to offer my goods, services, and housing. It’s still my property and not yours.
    I restrict nobody’s rights because they have no right to my property.

    Why?

    Has he attacked the US? No.
    Is he a threat to our national security? No.

    The only reason he dislikes is so much is our government placing sanctions and embargoes on Iran and influencing other nations to do the same.

    Kind of like the greedmongering power hungry democrats that promise us (the poor) help but only make us more poor and dependent on big government. Using help as a carrot on a stick to keep themselves in power.

    The neocon republicans waste money on wars we shouldn't be in.
    The far left dems waste money on mismanaged broken programs.

    Neither party helps he poor and both parties use the poor.

    The libertarian and true conservative wing of government gives us more opportunity to help ourselves save money by lower taxes and lower inflation and make more money and gets government off our backs.

    You're naive if you think there's any real difference between the mainstream of the two parties.

    They both bail out big business.
    The both make the poor poorer.
    They both have the same broken foreign policy.

    Do you agree or disagree?

    Stossel calls for repeal of public accommodations section of Civil Rights Act | Media Matters for America
    Ron Paul was on Hardball today expressing his liberian view that private shop holders have a right to keep anyone out of their shop they want to. So since I ran this poll last summer and we've had a bunch of new DPers, I thought I would float this one to the top again.

    Current counts:

    I Agree with John Stossel, this part of the Civil Rights Act Should Be Repealed: 28

    Absolutely NOT!!!!: 25

    I Don't Know: 3
