So you're argument is suddenly statist?
I don't think anti-discrimination laws are necessary for functional commerce, you'll have to explain that.
Also just to make sure we're on the same page, what is the point of the discussion so far?

I literally said "it's different if you're talking about government policy. If you pay taxes the government should treat you the same as anyone else who pays taxes."
If I assume you knew that I said that and assume that you're talking about the actions of individuals I think I'd have to assume you think that anyone who refuses to voluntarily give they're property to someone else who wants it will be in violation of the constitution based on you saying "Any action which does not have a specific legal permission and would hinder the PURSUIT of happiness is by nature unconstitutional."

You don't have a right to live in a particular neighborhood and you don't have a right to live near schools/airports/whatever, so as long as you don't already live there and have it taken from you, you haven't had anything taken from you. This applies if the private owners of the homes in the neighborhood won't sell to you. it's different if you're talking about government policy. If you pay taxes the government should treat you the same as anyone else who pays taxes.
I think I understand you "water is wet" thing now, but what argument do you think I (or maybe the original commenter) am using "Enforcing equality of opportunity restricts freedom" as a totem for?
Truly alarming but I still do it for the love of the profession. . 17 comments

Are you purposely making this difficult by making 3-post comments? Let's see what I can do.
You were clearly comparing the two things, what else do you call it?
I disagree on your statement that denying someone equal opportunity removes their freedom because your freedoms never extend beyond anyone else's freedom, like freedom of association. It also doesn't harm them because they don't lose anything that they had a right to in the first place. It's also not necessarily out of malice. You making a lot of assumptions.
The quote in the first comment is factual, and I don't think it an equivalent to "water is wet" because it's likely that many people don't realize it.
The quote in your second-to-last comment would likely sound profound to most people.
Lastly, why are you suggesting that water being wet can't possibly aid someone in an argument? Just because a fact is obvious doesn't mean it useless.

It's for the kids because at that age attention spans tend to be short and they generally have energy to burn.

"In society you give up freedoms by default in exchange for being able to live with others."
Yes, laws restrict freedoms. Congratulations, you've cracked the code.
And I'm not even categorically against restricting freedom of association to curb employment disparity based on bias, but the difference between not hiring someone and not murdering someone is you don't have a right to work in someone's business, that's a really shitty comparison.

They're really annoying if they come into your yard frequently. Basically just loud and they shit everywhere and eat your foliage.
I know people who refer to them as "rats with hooves".

Enforcing equality of opportunity restricts freedom. It's not complicated.

Equality of outcome or equality of opportunity?

I'm pretty sure the growth progress of the child is the reason most people ask about the age of children, even ones older than 2.

Mmmmaybe. It seems a little slow for a reflexive maneuver, but maybe.

Are you seriously asserting that poor people don't procreate?

You should add that the reason that level of precision is appropriate is because of the significant difference between children a month apart in that age range.

It't doesn't actually look like it was reflexive, more like quick thinking.

That show would have been so much better if the main character had some sort of personality.
