I never doubted the bill would cause a major uproar once it passed. I didn't support it. I did expect that Brewer would rise to the occasion and veto that sucker post haste. She's playing politics with it and we will probably find out why at some later date.
I never voted for Obama.
See that is a problem when one becomes an Independent. Partisans from both sides attempt to label you as being from the other side when they disagree. I am completely opposed to lobbyists crafting bills and buying government officials from either side of the isle or in between. I completely support separation of church and state, that means any and all forms of religion, including the religious affiliated lobbying.
What you have here is all of the above and more. I'll oppose it every time. Wrong is wrong. When Republicans do it, when Democrats do it, when Libertarians do it. When whomever does it, I'll oppose it. When Obama does it, whenever it happens I will oppose it. Wrong is wrong. THAT is often difficult, often difficult, for partisans to understand.

There is a bigger issue than someone being rude to you. If you are a public place there is certain rules you must follow and other rules you can make up just for your business. Everyone must wear shoes and shirts to enter your business is an example of the individual business making rules specific to their business. Most will never have a problem with these type of rules for a private business.
Where the line is crossed is that you refuse service based on race, color, religion and now most people think sexual orientation. You have a right to think being gay is an affront to god and they will burn in hell or whatever your religious beliefs are. But, thats your personal opinion. You operate a public business your religious beliefs can't determine who can and who can't buy your products.
As soon as that idea would be held up in court we would have shops and bars putting up whites only signs based on religious reasons. Is that really the direction we want the country to take?
