WHY Do They Do THIS?

Lagniappe’s Lair (Murphy’s Law) posted about one of his favorite eateries posting a ‘no open carry of ocweapons’ sign.

Regarding the restaurant’s decision to limit the patronage of their establishment, and his decision to not eat there, henceforth.

One of his commenters, Papa Bear, posted the following:

Huh, I wonder what would happen if I owned a business and posted a sign “No openly gay or closet individuals allowed”?

An interesting twist on the rights of business to refuse service, and the rights of individuals to be let alone with their proclivities.  Got me thinking of this flap on AZ Governor Jan Brewer’s desk, the ‘right to refuse service’ bill – which the media is soundly trouncing, lest she sign it.

I still believe in the businesses right to refuse service, and the individual’s right to vote with their feet, and take their stomachs and money elsewhere.

Of course, as another of Murphy’s commenters said (in part):

They do have that right, and they are allowed to make that business decision. We, however, also have a right to take our business there or elsewhere. Well, we did until Obamacare came about, anyhow.

As my dear departed Father used to say, “ANOTHER country heard from!”

Is this Republic’s goal to support the rights of individuals, or is this democracy’s goal to enforce the will of the majority, ignoring minority rights.  Or the will of the elite?

I fear that decision has already been made…

THIS JUST IN.  ARIZONA GOVERNOR JAN BREWER VETOED THE BILL.  Was it her choice as governor, or ‘the will of the vocal ‘majority’?  Who knows?

  1. Good question. A true democracy, of course, is mob rule: the will of the majority, however slim, enforced on all with no recourse.

    Sigh…

  2. You are assuming that it’s a vocal MAJORITY. Not necessarily so.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
