The problem with forcing businesses to serve everybody is that Jim Crow laws forced businesses to be segregated. In a free country, the government should have no authority to force any privately-owned business to serve or to not serve anybody of their own choosing. This is really the only constitutionally-consistent view of government power regarding the powers given to it. It is a private business' right to determine who it serves and who it does not. But idiots who believe and support the prominent idiot scumbag Kennedy's view don't seem to grasp that those who discriminate would lose out in the marketplace to those who did not. And it would all happen without the Constitution-violating dictatorial laws pushed by leftist scum.

I agree with Steve that prejudice was so strong in many states that few would have dared to treat negroes as equals with others without a strong law requiring that this be done. -- Ray Downen.

So the Civil Rights Act was the product of "leftist scum"? In reality the systematic racial discrimination in the south could not be broken through the free market. There was too much peer pressure, backed with the threat of violence, on businesses to conform to JimCrow segregation

As the credits begin to roll on the year 2012, I would like to take proper note of the recent loss of one of America’s most compelling figures, Judge Robert Heron Bork.  Robert Bork died on December 19 in Arlington, Virginia at the age of 85 due to complications of heart disease.
