So, First National Bank of Omaha thinks it can blacklist the National Rifle Association and refuse to do business withThat's just how it is.
Not in 21st century America.
The courts have ruled that a business has no discretion in whom it will do business with.
If a Christian baker must bake a wedding cake for gay weddings, then you had better believe a bank must do business with the NRA.
Leftists will insist that these are two separate cases, but they're really not. If one kind of business which deals in luxuries is a "public accommodation", then a business which deals in a necessity must also be a "public accommodation".

There is a point at which liberalism's hubris turns into bloodlust. The act of exerting force becomes reflexive and then pleasurable. It is not likely that Stalin suffered any remorse on March 5, 1940 after signing the order for the Katyn massacre. Every smug theorist of liberalism has morphed into a vicious mass murderer--or, like Jean-Paul Sartre, an apologist for such. Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pol Pot, Kim Il-sung--they were all brilliant theorists who grew to savor violence.I can't say it more clearly than that.

Yesterday, Mrs. Fungus wanted me to get her the components for a turkey sandwich, mainly turkey and rye bread. I did her one better; knowing that neither of us likes doing anything on Sundays, I also bought ham and salami, french bread rolls, and submarine dressing. Now we can make sandwiches and play WoW all day, or do whatever the hell we want to without having to cook or go anywhere.
