    How interesting!


    That's even lamer than the socialists here, who blow elections and at least appear to accept responsibility.

    But as an observer I have to note, that when after the news that millions would lose their plans, and millions more found out it was not affordable, did the right wing say reverse the election?

    The left in the US is weaker than I thought. And of course, there's those unintended consequences again, like Obamacare, like Libya, pulling out of Iraq...we see short term reasoning and no long term thinking. There was a premier in this province, held the reigns of power from 1952 to 1971 named W.A.C. Bennett, who was found of saying "socialists couldn't run a lemonade stand and make a profit if the lemons were free"

    Arkansas passes an even worse RFRA law than Indiana ... even voting on this bill as Indiana is withering under a national ass kicking.

    Lol. What a collection of politically obtuse dumb asses.

    Liars have won this round?
    Tell Gov. Hutchison in Arkansas he is a liar.

    I have many wonderful memories in my neighboring state of Indiana, especially in beautiful Brown County,
    where we would go to Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Festival back in the day.

    And, my wife and I STILL go to rock concerts near Noblesville--she loved Heart and put up with Def Leppard .

    Would you be opposed to those types of signs going up?

    has it happened?


    Man the slippery slope argument transposed to ssm and racism!

    You realize how patently obvious you are?

    The slippery slope argument doesn't work in the first place, let alone the stretch to signs in stores...anything, no matter how irrational is thrown into the mix.

    The "No blacks" signs were in response to govt mandates-typically signed in by democrats. Blacks had to sit at the back of the bus not because the bus company or individuals wanted them there-but because of the law.

    To compare that to a law that allows private citizens and businesses to not provide services that violate a deeply held religious conviction (citing laws introduced by the left, ironically) is the strawman.

    The left would do better in trying to repeal the federal RFRA, passed by democrats.

    Speaking more broadly-as the left continues to advance its agenda through the coercion of govt-it can expect more of this type of reaction to said laws. Get used to it.

    If a muslim wants to abide by Sharia in his shop fine. I'd speculate that those who dont agree will look to another business.

    Dunno, Lets take a road trip through Indiana and see. Would you be surprised if it has? I would be surprised if it hasn't.

    Oh yes. I remember when Liberace could play Vegas but was not allowed to stay there. I remember the "Hetrosexuals only" "Fag entrance" and "We don't serve fruits" days. ...

    oh wait, I forgot to take my meds.
