    Arizona governor Jan Brewer vetoed a bill allowing businesses to discriminate against gays.

    Of course, the pessimist in me believes she did it only to keep business, (including the Super Bowl, and a new tech plant) in her state. The optimist in me would lead me to believe she actually believes in the concept. However, I'm not sure.

    She would have signed it if there wasn't such an outrage.

    What I'm surprised about is that she didn't wait until Friday evening to do it.

    Both of the state's Republican senators were opposed to it. Look at all the companies that came out against it. The pressure to veto it was enormous.

    Jan Brewer isn't always predictable. Remember, she wound up agreeing to take Obamacare's Medicaid expansion money unlike many other Republican governors.

    Who gives a shit what Rush says? He is a buffoon.

    Truth is, big business gets this. They have the demographic data clearly showing the younger people are totally past this right now and do not want to hear jack shit about it from older, ignorant bigots.

    Sure, there are some outliers, but the numbers are clear. They know their brands are at risk, and making this statement now is a net gain for them financially. Good will, over time, linked to a brand is worth a ton of money, and money talks, bigots walk.

    That's what we saw play out here.

    BTW: Here is some Rush audio.

    Now, he did say this, highlighted at C&L above: We know by now that the left doesn't accept any laws that they don't like.

    Damn straight. Racism, bigotry, theocracy are not OK. Ever. The left is 100 percent right about this. Always will be, and whoever thinks otherwise makes Jesus cry. Word.

    Bottom line;

    It's bad business to associate with bigots.

    >>from older, ignorant bigots.
    Mark my words...like abortion...the acceptance of homosexuality as normal will always have a fair opposition. There's just to much sin going on in the issue/lifestyle/practice/procedure and to many will see that.
    >>and whoever thinks otherwise makes Jesus cry. Word.
    and that's the real issue...you don't know what God's Word says about homosexuality. Let's start another Bible study right here--- :D

    ...the acceptance of homosexuality as normal will always have {an increasingly marginalized} opposition.

    Just like there will always be opposition to having the races mix.

    And YOU Broadway don't know anything about who Jesus was. You ONLY know what humans have twisted. Isn't God the ALL LOVING God? ALL LOVING? Didn't Jesus help everyone? EVERYONE? Not just the people that believed but EVERYONE!

    EVERYONE means EVERYONE Broadway....

    God LOVES everyone Gay, straight, Muslim, Black, White no matter what!!!!

    I'm sorry that you don't understand that about God/Jesus!

    I guess you need a class on how to be a human being.

    WAKE THE F UP!
