soup nazi photo: Soup Nazi 304175.jpg

Eric Holder was saying that he doesn't think that State Attorney's General need to enforce Defense of Marriage acts that have passed within their states, that they have the freedom to ignore that. Well I just don't think this is right and what we’re looking at here is a basic fundamental right of American people to conduct their business in ways they want to as long as it doesn’t hurt somebody else. They obviously can't leave trash out on the streets and pollute the environment and so forth, but there's something basically un-American about forcing a bakery to bake a wedding cake for a couple they don’t like. If they don’t like the people, that’s the way it is.

Remember the great Soup Nazi in the Seinfeld series. He had a right to serve soup to anybody he wanted to. And I think you got the right to bake for whoever you want to or to provide wedding photography to anybody you want to.

This is ridiculous that they would force them to do something else.

We'll just call this the Soup Nazi defense which I am positive will bring Ted Olson and David Boies to their knees before the Supreme Court.

There are so many people out there making fools of themselves trying to justify why it is perfectly fine to introduce laws that give license to discriminate against anyone you damn well please. But leave it to dear addled Uncle Pat to out-crazy all of them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
