Let it never be said the Czar doesn’t let JAB get another word or two in.
|Dear Your Czarness,
Reading the post from Operative B made me think of other inconvenient, unintended consequences:
I can only imagine the outrage when the only gay florist in Topeka, Kansas is asked to provide a floral arrangement for the ….Westboro Baptist Church. The fact that our hypothetical gay florist finds the beliefs of that “church” to be repugnant can no longer be a justification for refusal, or can it?
Good Luck with the Beard Lice,
Beard lice… thy name is Legion!
You know, it doesn’t even need to be as dramatic as Westboro: imagine a liberal artist being asked to write a song for a Republican candidate. Sorry if your political beliefs don’t agree… we can now force you under some bizarre commerce clause to use your services.
It doesn’t matter that this is for a political purpose or some other vague cause: you cannot deny business to anyone for civil purposes.
Your point though is that this is going to blow up for the Left, will blow up in a big way, and will occur to a liberal long before it happens to a conservative. That’s how it always works: and the Left will come crying to the world to change this unfair law back!
Odds are 10:1 this will become the Republicans’ fault for allowing this to happen.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
