    Isn't that great. Businesses allowed to openly lobby government.

    Did Walmart indicate they would pull their businesses out of the 30 states with RFRA laws? Or are they jumping on the "sweet! Look at the good press I can get!" bandwagon?

    yeah who cares who suffers and gets screwed over in the meantime and how unconstitutional it is right. Why even have a ****ing government? This kind of madness makes me want to have all state governments removed and just have the fed courts take over

    this is the same state with a senator who quipped "You don't have to pass an IQ test to be in the senate."
    I have never been to a federal hearing or committee meeting, but I have been to several state legislative committee hearings and the interesting thing is almost all say that same thing - "If there are questions in two years we can fix it." Every time I have heard it, I have wanted to stand up and shout "No you won't. You have no intention to."

    Ahh what's the matter? You don't get to discriminate against gays. Such a shame. I think it's freaking hilarious. This primitive movement is blowing up in their faces.

    There's some delicious irony right there.

    Don't see anyway RFRA can be used to discriminate against the gays, the Oprah, or whomever. Want to try and explain that?

    I can't explain the stupidity and intolerance of businesses that refuse to serve gays.

    Well now it makes sense to me. They all want to move up the political ladder within those 2 years and someone else can deal with the ****storm they created. Repealing or even amending a law is an admission of failure, so that is the last thing a politician will attempt to do to his own law

    Which is why the boycotts are necessary - force his base to get pissed when the state loses hundreds of millions and is humiliated, putting his own political future in jeopardy to the point that repeal is the more palatable option.

    I'll give you the answer: the RFRA can't be used to override a States' interest in promoting public accommodation.

    It's pretty much the equivalent of the "later" button when your computer tells you to update your software.

    Its like I have been saying.....now the left accepts business and corporations as being people. Just a few months ago they were running around and saying Businesses and Corporations weren't people.

    See what happens when the Wonder Twins (Progressives & Liberals) get together and.....Activate.
