?

Should sporting events deny law abiding citizens, the right to protect themselves?

  1. I am a liberal, and yes we want women to be defenseless, so Harvey Weinstein can take advantage of.

    Swing and a miss, tard. I think they be should allowed to serve or not serve anyone as they see fit. I have stated on numerous occasions my disdain for public accomdation laws.

    It's the fact facebook hides behind the whole "it's not our content, it's theirs" law for liability protection, but then decide they can censor such content even though they say they are not responsible for it.

    And a single baker is not facebook. I have even said that if a majority of the bakers in an area refused service THEN the government can get involved because of actual harm being done.

    With respect, I totally disagree with that reasoning. There isn’t a need for the government to get involved when a free market solution already exists.

    Not sure if the free market here is up to the task. So we would have seperate versions of facebook, each smaller and smaller, and more locked into a given political viewpoint.

    Hmmm.. maybe facebook needs to be broken up as a Trust......

    Of course the free market is up to the task. If Facebook’s discrimination is as bad as people claim, then another company with different business practices will arise and eat into their share of the market.

    the nature of social media platforms make them more viable the larger they are, and the replicability of being on multiple platforms at once is questionable.

    A question, do you see facebook as some sort of a digital commons or not?

    Sorry. I support the 2nd but DontD see the need for wearing a gun to sing the anthem. Stadium is privately owned.

    No Dice on this one

    No, I don’t see them as a digital commons. I view them as a message board which is free to allow or not allow people on their servers as they see fit. Posting on Facebook isn’t a right and nor should it be.

    well then they shouldn't be protected from liability of what is posted there then. If it's "their site" it's "their content"
