    So, you're saying you have to go to church to exercise a supposed freedom of religion?

    So... how was a Christian bakery compelled to bake a cake that was against their beliefs?  What was invoked to make that happen?

    So, someone's right to refuse the sale of certain products or services was just a misprint in a lot of headlines not so long ago?

    Sure it does.  It has already been established that equal protection trumps an individual's freedom of religion.  I'm wondering how much further down that path you're willing to go?

    "He who has the ball, makes the rules"
    If we're going to claim that equal protection under the 14th amendment trumps the first amendment... then?

    I think that sums it up nicely.  Protected classes.  Protected types of speech.  Calvinball

    So, still... you are fine with forcing a bakery owned by a black family to bake confederate flag cakes for the KKK?

    Further ingraining the state's hold on an institution they should having nothing to do with in the first place?  I don't think you know what "deregulation" means
    With respect to symbolism, is that not regarded as free speech?  Or did that just take another in a long string of hits?

    We certainly took care of that with further establishing marriage as a state institution

    Because, when a non-Democrat candidate funnels monies to conflicting interests, it's also not a big deal.... right?

    The point was to weed out hate speech and make unpopular beliefs illegal.  They appear to have succeeded roundly.  Now it's just a matter of making sure hate speech and unpopular beliefs only apply to things you don't like.

    Obama can't get Warren in the race, so he's going to his last resort

    Again... so much for the "public-facing" argument for compelling sales regardless of a business' private convictions

    I would fully expect the latter of the two.  It seems to be the modis operandi of the DC political machine these days.  If they truly wanted that information, they'd raid NSA databases to retrieve that information (assuming the SoS and other key members of Congress weren't on an exempt list).  I fully expect that (like 9/11) the information was available, but the actionable intelligence was not compelling enough to devote the resources.  Then, like everyone else playing MMQB, there's a lot of railing against about what we should have done long after the fact for the sake of political gains.
    IMO, it is much more likely that the real reason that the Clintons don't want this released is because of their damning knowledge of their Foundation financials and its clear violations in the wake of it.  The claim of administrations "wanting transparancy" should make anyone laugh to the point of vomiting anymore.
