I would like to take a minute to thank the American Civil Liberties Union for all their hard work protecting the rights of us citizens. Take the dress code in the Power & Light District (2/26, Local, “Dress-code limits debated; Civil-rights advocates support the planned city ordinance. Business groups worry that it could restrict their rights”). Why do businesses think they have the right to say what I can or can’t wear in their establishment?
In fact, I plan on contacting the ACLU, because I feel I’ve been discriminated against. Why shouldn’t I be able to go in and pay for my gas or buy my groceries without having to worry about wearing shoes? Why can’t I enjoy a burger at my favorite restaurant without being burdened by a T-shirt? All of the businesses with a “no shirt, no shoes, no service ” sign are trampling on my civil rights.
After we take care of this, we can move on to the businesses with the “concealed weapons prohibited” signs. I call discrimination and racism.
