    I agree. Also the whole argument on what the rules should be for bathrooms is flawed (assuming it's a private business). It should be up to the owners to decide, not government. It's depressing watching the presidential candidates argue over the "correct" way government should run a private business.

    This is what happens when you rack up 20 trillion in debt. You become a slave to your creditors. The only surprise to me is that it was Saudi Arabia. I thought China would be the first one to use dumping treasuries as leverage.

    Or Hooters. Another argument I hear is that a business owner loses his rights as soon as he "opens his business to the public". I hate that. Sadly I hear it quite often in this forum.

    Also there's going to be less jobs overall because of the added cost. Every time I see a story on racial controversy I get irritated because I know ultimately it's going to be forced upon us at gunpoint. If it weren't for anti discrimination laws (and other redistribution schemes) I'd be a lot more sympathetic.

    It's perfectly legal to hire and fire someone based on certain thoughts (if you don't like the person for example), but it's illegal based on other thoughts (the person is a member of a protected group). Isn't that a thought crime?

    I'm talking about the recent laws that make it legal to hire and fire LGBTs, where it used to be illegal. Here's an example: http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/03/24/471700323/north-carolina-passes-law-blocking-measures-to-protect-lgbt-people

    I don't see the murkiness. It should be crystal clear. ALL discrimination laws are immoral. It should be an at will contract between the employer and employee. What I don't like about the "anti LGBT laws" is that they don't go far enough. The "anti LGBT laws" are supposed to protect "religious" freedom but what about freedom in general? I should be able to hire and fire anyone, for any reason, not just a gay person because it's against my religion.

    You're right, the article I read makes it sound like the lawsuit is against the govt and private companies but according to that link it's only against the Federal government. I guess it's a good thing that they had success suing the federal govt. And I agree the govt should not be promoting anything. We shouldn't have a Department of Energy. The problem is WHAT they sued for. I'm afraid this makes it "official" that CO2 causes damage and you can sue for it.

    Is this a joke? http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamesconca/2016/04/10/federal-court-rules-on-climate-change-in-favor-of-todays-children/#3e30c0c86219 "In the first lawsuit to involve a planet, Judge Thomas Coffin of the United States Federal District Court in Eugene, Oregon, ruled on Friday in favor of twenty-one plaintiffs, ages 8 to 19, on behalf of future generations of Americans in a landmark constitutional climate change case brought against the Federal Government and the Fossil FOSL +0.68% Fuel Industry. The lawsuit alleges that the Federal Government is violating the Plaintiffs’ constitutional and public trust rights by promoting the use of fossil fuels. The Complaint explains that, for over fifty years, the United States Government and the Fossil Fuel Industry have known that carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels causes global warming and dangerous climate change, and that continuing to burn fossil fuels destabilizes the climate system."
