    That's not misleading or anything... :rolleyes:

    I heard it. He did say yes, but he uses 'yes' like some people use, okay, or uh, or well.

    He didn't say "Yes" to the question, however, which is why it's misleading, and MSNBC refuses to apologize or acknowledge that it was more than just the New York Times that picked up on their mistake.

    Maybe I'm missing the point here....but even if he HAD meant, "Yes. Private businesses have the right to refuse service to black people. I'm not in favor of discrimination of any kind..."

    So what?

    Whats so horrible about a person in this nation believing that a private business owner has the right to run his/her business as they see fit? If they wan't to be racist assholes, so be it...word will get out, and most people will never go there and they'll go OUT of business.

    It seems to me to be a much simpler, and certainly less intrusive method of dealing with racist assholes than allowing a bunch of morons in Washington, D.C. to have the power and authority to tell someone who has invested their life savings into a small business how they have to run that business.

    I think Rand Paul's point is sound...less government intrusion, more personal freedom (even if it means the freedom to be a racist asshole).

    yeah, dammit, we should make the darkies walk 10 miles to use a restroom like back in the good ole days.

    :cuckoo:''


    if the marketplace worked to prevent that type of thing, we wouldn't have needed the civil rights act.

    you people are seriously unbelievable.

    btw, the one word that you're whining about, kk?

    it changes the meaning not one iota.

    So it's your contention that the only thing keeping from devolving into a segregated mass in the year 2010 is the Civil Right's Act? You don't think attitudes have changed?

    A transcript is what it is. It is the spoken word transcribed into print.
