    Not so Being able to govern commerce at the federal level for the country and at the State level for the States does give them ability to regulate business.

    what it does not give them is the ability to ignore the 1st amendment. they have to take it into account when deciding how to regulate business.

    Sorry, but no matter how much you want to discriminate, it is not a first amendment right in business.

    You have a right to be a racist & a bigot. That doesn't give you the right to discriminate in business dealings.

    Where in the constitution does it say that?

    Where does it say that you give up your rights when you try to sell something?

    Many of these athletes have been preparing for this for a good portion of their lives. They may never have another chance to compete against the best in the world. Yet some politician who sits in Washington can end that dream. That is criminal.

    lol, Lindsey Graham might say he's boycotting the Olympics, but I'll bet he'd be secretly watching the men's figure skating.
