    As many know, musicians and now PayPal are boycotting NC because they don't like some of the laws they passed.

    So how is this different from a baker refusing to bake a cake?

    Is refusing to provide someone a service Constitutional only if the political power that be agree with your particular ideology?

    It isn't any different. People can withhold their labor and products in political protest. Why not?

    PayPal, now in Egypt!

    https://www.paypal.com/eg/webapps/mpp/ahlan

    This is the same Egypt where being gay is considered obscene and gets you arrested.

    But here in America PayPal thinks you're a bigot if you just don't want your little girl to have to see another woman's penis in the restroom. The hypocrisy burns.

    Don't try to make sense of the moonbats.

    Just know we have become a nation of men, not law and order.

    Perhaps it is time for conservative states to begin boycotting all goods and services from liberal states.

    No, a nation of transgenders.

    If you have to bake a cake, then why do libtards get off without question?

    The USA has not stopped its importing oil from Saudi Arabia on account of its human rights record.
    Indeed, American public relations firms, if not also the US government, have worked to cover up that record.

    Has anyone in the West said anything about Saudi Arabia?

    Here's what Human Rights Watch said about Saudi Arabia's human rights record in 2014:
    http://www.hrw.org/world-report/2015/country-chapters/saudi-arabia

    "During a visit to Saudi Arabia in March, US President Barack Obama *did not discuss*
    human rights issues with Saudi officials. ... Otherwise, the United States *did not criticize*
    Saudi human rights violations beyond Congressionally-mandated annual reports."

    That's a meaningless, feel good move. Oil is sold on the open world market. When you buy a petroleum based product, you haven't a clue about where the oil came from.

    I don't give a rat's rump where something originates. What matters is, its usefulness to me, and its price.
