    I thought the bill was about banning gays from buying beds. Or was that the other bill?

    So everyone in Arizona agrees with this? Did you ask each person?

    It is unlawful for any person, with intent to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend, to use ANY ELECTRONIC OR DIGITAL DEVICE and use any obscene, lewd or profane language or suggest any lewd or lascivious act, or threaten to inflict physical harm to the person or property of any person.
    If that's what it says then it is way to broad and overreaching.

    AZ has certainly more than its share of RW whack jobs. It's a backasswards state politically. Easily the most extreme right wing in the west.

    We need to discover who introduces this kinda garbage and they need to never have a job in politics thereafter. Even if it doesnt go all the way through the fact someone tried should warrant attention.
