I actually wanted to vote no. It seems that it's ok to say whatever you want to say if you are certain race or sex. But, if you are a Caucasian that knows what sex you are, and are attracted to the opposite sex, then you are looked at as racist and hateful if you don't agree with what's happening.

Owners are citizens and have a right to express their opinions. That said, they need to be ready for both support and opposition.

No. The problem is that if you are a left wing lunatic and you let your crazy ideas and beliefs be known you will be welcomed by the left and the media. But if you have conservative views and beliefs that are based on well thought out truths you will be slammed and called a bigot. Speak the truth.

They have the right to express what they want. But if they support something I don't they'll most likely lose my business.

Our country was founded with freedom of speech. We've gotten to the point where if someone disagrees with someone else, that person ( or business) should be punished for thinking or speaking differently. That's just wrong.

Business owners are citizens, and often some of the most important since they provide jobs. But one must be prudent in how they make their comments. Customers have the right to not patronize anyone they don't like. I do believe politically-motivated false ratings are awful.

Happy treason day! The day we celebrate past treasons dressed up as freedom. while condemning any thought of treason even if it be for the same reason!

It's hard to feel patriotic when a small percentage of people enforce laws on women, jeopardizing their lives. The "Supreme Court" is a joke. Now families will fall sick from polluted air and water without the safety net of regulations, jeopardizing our future for the profiteering of big companies.
