Never Forget - Who you vote for counts. If you don't want a President who sees you as irredeemable and deplorable, the choice is clear.
in the three cities where they currently exist, Phoenix--Flagstaff--Tucson.
These rights do not exist anywhere else in AZ.
As well, the law is written broadly as to circumvent Romer v. Evans.
It would allow a Muslim cabbie to not pick YOU up if you've been drinking, as an example.
Gov. Brewer is aware of the damage to her state's economy ALREADY, with cancellations and decreased visitation at the Grand Canyon.
The Super Bowl is riding on her decision, as it did in 1993 when AZ lost the Super Bowl due to not having a MLK Jr. day .

There is no hiding, people have religion, a lot of people do. People also own property and businesses. I disagree with you strongly. Folks should not be compelled, in this day and age, to serve anyone they don't wish to.
Did this already get posted? Hilarious.
A working class hero is something to be
lets just predict the future now
this bill will be vetoed, if it does happen to gain traction anywhere it will be temporary and even if passed it will eventually be removed when pushed to the higher courts
its panic and fear from some bigots and or people who support discrimination nothing more
Let me get this straight .. you dont have a right to someone elses private business, yet refusing to do private business with someone somehow violates their rights? Which rights?

As I said earlier, you'd have to think twice before moving or expanding a business to Arizona. Just because this law will be vetoed, and it will, doesn't mean the clowns in the Arizona state legislature won't attempt to pass more ridiculous laws. There is no guarantee that the insanity will cease. If you are about to spend millions and millions to move or expand business to Arizona you want a stable business environment. Given the state's recent history that isn't a safe bet.
Imagine the decision to move your corporation from another state to Arizona. You are going to spend millions doing it and you are going to need to bring a hell of a lot of your current employees with you. Arizona is shaky ground for families with school age children because Arizona doesn't spend money on public education. If some of your workers are Hispanic there is the recent memory of Arizona's anti-immigration laws; Joe Arpaio's racial profiling; and other laws that discriminate against ethnic groups. Now you have the recent bill that "protects" religious groups from non-existing threats and potentially gives businesses the right to refuse service on the basis of religion, race, disability and sexual preference. Now try and sell that environment to all the families you want to move to your new HQ in Arizona. Tell them that all those days are over and they don't have to worry. Tell them that Arizona businesses won't be boycotted nationally because of dumbassery in the state legislature and therefore you can promise that there won't be any unforeseen business downturns which may result in a reduction of work force.
That and situations like it are part of the impact that the proposed bill is having. Brewer's dawdling underlines reasons for concern.
