    The Arkansas bill now goes to the state’s Republican governor, Asa Hutchinson, who expressed reservations about an earlier version but more recently said he would sign the measure if it “reaches my desk in similar form as to what has been passed in 20 other states.” But the bill already faces a significant corporate backlash, including from Doug McMillon, the chief executive of Walmart, the state’s largest corporation, who said Tuesday afternoon that Mr. Hutchinson should veto it.

    He should have clearly stated his position to the Legislature. Now he waffles.
    Reason- Look to Indiana -
    The Law is flawed from the outset.
    For those that say leave this, that and whatever to the marketplace, well the marketplace has spoken.
    If my post offends you, I deeply Apple-O-Jize.

    You are way too giddy for what you have here. This is nothing.

    He did not realize the level of bigotry among the gay and their lobby. Now he knows.

    Politicians are a little scared of their base. But they are even more scared of corporations.

    You guys are just upset because the American people stood up to the right-wing agenda and said "Not in our country". Sorry...but America will continue to reject bigotry and discrimination in 2015.

    Look to Indiana and see who were the major backers of the law.
    Bigotry was the law that he refused to sign.
    He should have clarified that.
    Now he looks like, well I will leave that to his supporters.

    The CEO of Walmart is gay? Or connected to their lobby?

    I didn't know that.

    No...he didn't realize that in 2015 the American people do not want bigotry and discrimination in our country. Its a new world. It used to be politically expedient for GOP politicians to appease the right-wing base. In today's world, it is completely the opposite. Some politicians have realized this already...others are late to the game (like Pence). They are all learning though that the right-wing social agenda is no longer helpful to them in their political efforts.

    You see, I did not say he was. But you chose to insinuate I had. I wonder why?
