    That's an event. Thanks for that admission. And that the couple had purchased products there before, it obviously has nothing to do with the persons

    So now your premise is that despite them being longtime customers, (and gay), only now when a wedding cake was requested did the bakery suddenly decide to discriminate against the couple?

    Thats makes sense.

    Lolz Nimby Wal Mart is a business. Businesses are there to make money. I certainly dont care what their view is. For NASCAR, suffice to say thats even more so.

    What would you do if you were Arkansas Gov. Hutchison?

    He's just been (hobby) lobbied to veto an Indiana-style bill in his Arkansas by WAL-MART.

    A bill he said he would readily sign.

    Indiana wants me--Lord I can't go back there.
    Except to get to Kasich's state .

    i doubt it since pence in his letter to lobbyists specifically mentioned protecting christianity and they hate muslims just as much

    Depends if he can run for reelection or has republic primary aspirations, in which case he'll sign to appeal to bigot voters. Michigan's governor said he might veto it, but that's because he can't run for a 3rd term.

    If the arkansas or any other gov actually cared about his state's reputation or economic viability he would veto it, but he's a populist pig like every other politician

    And this is why democracy fails

    That would depend on the political situation in Arkansas. I have been to SW Missouri and NW Arkansas which IIRC is where Walmart is based. They likely hold significant power there, and the state is not consistently Republican or Democrat, so that would be up to him.

    IIRC Walmart supports raising the minimum wage knowing its bad for the economy and unemployment-but they do so because it hurts their competitors more.

    Like I said, Walmart is a business, its there to make money first and foremost. Wasn't Hillary on the board of directors for Walmart?
