    Yeah, bless her, I'm sure she's tired of talking flack from Holder while the state pays the bill.

    It's funny how often and vehemently I'm told atheism is NOT a religion unless, of course, it's more convenient to one's argument for it to be regarded as one.

    All the pro-LGBT cohersion doesn't come with out some backlash, and now you don't like it. Could have left sleeping dogs lie, but no.

    Arizona still suffering financially from the legislature's infamous SB 1070 immigration law now forwards to the governor a completely unnecessary and idiotic bill to help businesses say no to gays and lesbians because, you know, the bible says so. Meanwhile with tourist business still down the state can't figure out why. So they've set aside a half a million bucks to find out why people aren't coming! . No doubt this most recent welcoming action will attract more people and more businesses.

    Google is reportedly looking at adding a major center in Arizona. No doubt everyone working for major businesses are white, born again, male and straight. Chances are increasing that Google and other tech companies will go to Austin as others have. Hey and Austin has a real downtown with a thriving nightlife. But then again if you hate sin you shouldn't be out at night anyway.

    Gay people not being allowed in straight establishments? Sounds like modern segregation to me, especially if all they have to say is their spiritual beliefs are offended.

    Honestly, if your spiritual beliefs are that bigoted, then **** your spiritual beliefs. Maybe you should open a church instead of a business. Oh wait... same thing.

    Even if Brewer signs this bill it would get to the Supreme Court in a hurry.

    Tourism is down because folks don't want to risk getting caught in the war that illegals are bringing over with them from Mexico. I don't think most folks are all that eager to visit any open drug trade route.

    Well, if you're that butthurt because one business refuses you service, maybe you'll grow up and just shop elsewhere.
