Uh huh. Because being told you must continue to do the job that you set out to do for personal profit, only do it in a fair and equal way, is just like fire hoses and separate drinking fountains (*not to mention interracial marriage bans). Surrre, Ry.

Can't wait to hear how not being able to get President Obama out of office was like am internment camp directly targeting the Heritage Foundation itself.
