    I'm not sure you understand what the cake case was about. Be offended, boycott, do whatever you want short of violence. Do not ask government to be your daddy and force people to play nice.
    I'm pretty sure that has absolutely nothing to do with what the Supreme Court ruling was about. You do know it is illegal for a restaurant to refuse to serve blacks, right?

    Did the restaurant refuse to serve whites or refuse to serve her? Did the cake shop refuse to sell them a cake or refuse to make them a custom cake?

    I think you know the answers to both of those questions, but not sure what your point is?

    I guess that's the crux of the issue. Discrimination according to race color and creed is punishable but forcing someone to do something they don't agree with is unethical. Can they go there and buy whatever they have on display and do what they want with it yes, can they force them to make something they don't want to for whatever reason no.

    Discrimination on the basis of political ideology is 100% legal.

    End of story.

    Discrimination for being a cunt you disagree with on the basis of their own choice to be and support a cunt is most definitely fine though.

    From the article about staffers dating :

    Ultimately, staffers say the allure of a White House or administration gig and the power and access that come with it means they retain some social appeal.

    One Trump staffer told Politico, "At the end of the day, if they are part of the establishment and living in D.C., they usually want or need something from the White House, which can be kind of nice."
    Does this mean what I think it means ?
    Dating a lobbyist sounds like the basis for a healthy relationship amirite?

    Subject matter expert on the topic, are you?

    I'd wager you know piss all about how either white or black people get treated in the States beyond what you read online.

    Keckers is quite right, the very worst thing you can be in the U.S. is poor (and especially poor and uneducated), of any shade.

    On the vid, short and likely leaves out alot, but if the claim is as put forth, the neighbor gal is a typical shitty meddling neighbor. Happens all the time, only when it's white on white, no one posts it here.

    What could possibly left out that makes calling the cops on a little girl selling water on the side of the road, OK? Hypothetically, what would make that phone call OK?
