I think what everyone is forgetting in this case is that a casino is a business. Any business hates to give money back. I know if half of my customers all of a sudden ran to my boss and demanded their money back for something I did, I'd be on the street looking for old Top Ramen containers in the dumpster.
Remember, casinoes can, and will, kick you out if your are having too much luck at the tables.
This was a case of Linda Ronstadt not knowing her audience. Even though I am conservative, I agree that she has every right to voice her opinion. She just has to be prepared to accept whatever consequences come her way.
For all you freedom of speech advocates, remember the Constitution states "Congress shall pass no law abridging freedom of the press..speech..religion..right to assemble..etc". Unless Congress now makes policy for the Aladdin Hotel and Casino, it is a business and businesses can still reserve the right to refuse service to anyone...like it or not.
Linda, I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
Conservative room love,
ps be gentle, i bruise easy.
