Luckily, Bork is a non-entity.
[/quote]The only exception for "public accommodations" mentioned by Goldwater and Bork and Friedman and Buckley and others is the "common carrier" exception: if you're the only hostelry in town or own the only means of transportation in town obviously you got a monopoly and can't exclude anybody who can pay for your service. In all other cases government interference with our rights and property is unconstitutional.[/quote]
I don't get this at all. This doesn't seem to square with a claim that one is unalterably opposed to discrimination.
It doesn't even make any sense. If there's one common carrier, discrimination is verboten, if there are two or more they can discriminate. Does that mean that two or three or however many there are can discriminate? I hope there's more to this because these folks seem like major idiots.
And of course, back then there was no need for any government action. Things were going along swimmingly for every minority.
