discrimination......and you the tornado spinning.
is it discrimination to force by law a property owner not to smoke in his own building? how about car, or home?
how about forcing an employer provide insurance, or pay a specific wage?
how about taxation where discrimination against success is aggressive punishment.
how about married people by a minister in a church before god and family?
discrimination only applies when it benefits you and your ilk, and lawyers can argue for decades billing hours.
how about forcing people pay for abortions and birth control against their religion, and teachings of their entire life?
your biggest problem......the 2nd amendment, and 10% of the population is paying the bills.
rigged elections, massive bribes, public unions electing officials to sign their contracts, and redistribution of wealth schemes, and the nightmare is infinite.
November is going to be a punishment for career politicians. They know it.
Serious treasonous crimes have occurred, and Impeachment and jail terms are on the way.
Laugh all you want, because it is short lived.
By lethal force if necessary......Americans wanting the Constitution enforced and unamended will take back control, and you self proclaimed smartest people on earth will be treated as a virus. You did not think out what you did.
The military is not your friend, and will spit in your face. Expect them to just watch, as Revolutionary war 2 unfolds. This November is little bighorn. You are the self proclaimed smartest general. You also will learn the lesson the hard way unless you start thinking.
In 5 years America is more divided with hatred, than Muslim tribes who have fought the same war for a 1000 years.
Special interest pop culture is being forced into society, and those refusing to accept it are also forced to fund it.
By turning the cheek, we allowed corruption to rule.
Party is over, and cheeks are cut and bruised.
Real parents are going to protect their family at all cost from the parasite class that spins their problems on the religious law abiding hard working citizen.
if you want to keep laughing...can I suggest you purchase a grave plot before they are sold out.
Would you care to, or are you able to, come back to the topic at hand?

Your generic list of woes against the government aren't terribly relevant. In fact, they read very much like the manifesto of an angst ridden teen, whose parents have subjected them to a non-stop barrage of Fox News.

Ah, that's just his thing. It's like performance art. He swing by daily to make predictions, perform bad math and puff himself up about how the people he disagrees with are about to be swept up in the glorious cultural revolution. I like it.

adjective \&#712;p&#601;-blik\
: of, relating to, or affecting all or most of the people of a country, state, etc.
: of, relating to, paid for by, or working for a government
: supported by money from the government and from private contributors rather than by commercials
The legal definition is the second definition.
Judicial activist judges and other leftist use the casual definition of the word, which conveniently supports their totalitarian control over people and their private business practices. They also ignore the fact there is no constitutional basis for a central government to interfere in private business practice, nor does a central goverment have the delegated power to create and grant legal privileges to protected classes of people such as done through their diversity scheming.
The only part of a storefront business that is public is the sidewalk and maybe the real estate it occupies. The contract business is private and is not a government provided accomodation, although control freak leftist will argue otherwise. Leftist morons pretend the government is an unnamed third party in every private contract.

Here is what the Ohio Revised Code says..... you know.... THE LAW

Place of public accommodation" means any inn, restaurant, eating house, barbershop, public conveyance by air, land, or water, theater, store, other place for the sale of merchandise, or any other place of public accommodation or amusement of which the accommodations, advantages, facilities, or privileges are available to the public.

thanks for the complement of my youth.

I am 53 in 60 days.

and your inability for critical thinking is a major problem for you, and holding you back.

What is irrelevant is your flawed selfish entitled opinion.

America is wonderfully populated by low achievers like you. People like you remove competition from my career, and dramatically increase my income.

thanks again.....cheers.

I have no issues with critical thinking. You are the one advancing fallacies that some fellow Americans should be treated as second class citizens with less than equal protection of the law. Fortunately, we have courts to keep people like your from subverting equality and freedom.
Fundamental rights may not be put to a vote.

You don't know anything, and the only question is why the OH posters are on the whole so completely uneducated and stupid or whether the OH threads just attract one or two incredibly vexing, dense trolls.

No, your congregation at your house of worship of hate is "people." It is not a "place of public accommodation." That is one of what we call a "counter example," Jethro.

But thank you for doubling down on stupid. We can always count on those arguing some fundie point or other to do that.

As usual, the queer cheerleaders provide nothing from a reputable source that defines the word "public"; they instead offer tiresome deflections to PC definitions of "public accomodation" quoted from unreputable sources, typically penned by politicians and public servants. Then they claim that they have answered my question, acting dumb yet again.

These morons believe that laws and regulations penned and approved by slimy politicians are reputable sources.

For the sake of Lilith, grow up a bit, you diversity-addled doublespeaking dummies.

I am not religious, pinhead buddy, and I have not made any religious arguments whatsoever.

Your theatrics and drama are typical, reinforcing a queer stereotype.

It's no big secret that queers dominate the bias of TV and movie and theater and fashion content.

I know my posts are wasted on your style of stupid.

While I can't speak for others, I'm trying have you understand what public accommodation means, as that's what we're talking about when we talk about public access as it relates to discrimination.
42 U.S. Code § 12181 is itself a citation and should be easily identifiable as such. If you prefer a link to the context, http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/42/121... has greater detail
I have no idea how to supply you with a legal definition if you're not willing to accept legal definitions created, supported or enforced by the legal system. I doubt very strongly that anyone will be likely to provide you a working legal definition independent of a legal system, but would be interested to see if anyone else can turn something up.
As usual, you provide nothing from a reputable source that defines the word "public"; you instead offer the same tiresome deflection to PC definitions of "public accomodation" quoted from unreputable sources, typically a politician or public servant. You answer a question I never asked. Then you claim that you have answered my question, acting dumb.

You appear to believe that laws and regulations penned and approved by slimy politicians and public servants are reputable sources, a silly assumption on your part.

Here is what you posted, to refresh your simple, troll mind:

"Man-made law is an ass."

And so what laws were you expressing a preference for over man made ones?

We are discussing how the concept of "place of public accommodations" has not expanded over the decades. What other kind of law are you referring to on this point, Jethro?

Perhaps you simply don't know what you're typing. That would be a plausible explanation of your post....

Oh good, then you will now provide an authoritative definition and analysis of how "place of public accommodations" has been broadened as a concept over the years, as you now claim.

Or are you, more likely, just another mouthbreathing, bloviating, ignorant, uneducated, Fox News fabulist tee baggrz?(Yes.)

I think everyone here, aside from you, is talking about public accommodation.

If you're not, could you tell me in what context you're looking to place the word public, if not within the context of discrimination and public access?

You asked for the legal definition. I don't think it's going to be possible to provid eyou with an extra-legal legal definition.

He's trolling. He did not ask for a legal definition. He knows he is not using terms correctly.

He posted a Webster's dictionary definition of "public" and then tried to argue that that takes precedence in discussing this issue over the legal definition of "place of public accommodations."

Don't post as though you're explaining the nature of the dispute to him. The troll not only understands that, he purposefully generated it.

Even the first definition in Webster's is "of, relating to, or affecting all or most of the people of a country, state, etc"

Trying to make the case that public = of the state in this or all contexts seems like a hard row to hoe.
