What does someone's sexuality have to do with their ability at performing well at sport?

So Apple is cool doing business in China, but Arizona is crossing the line.


I think its more an issue of "Apple know it can actually influence policies in AZ, where they cannot in chine" (by chosing to do business or not)

Even as momentum continues to build against Arizona's controversial bill that would allow businesses to deny service to gay couples on religious grounds, the NFL on Wednesday morning began investigating the necessary steps to move next season's Super Bowl from the Phoenix area, if the proposal becomes law, a source close to the situation confirmed.

GOOD.

And Texas AG Greg Abbott is already planning an appeal for the Federal ruling calling Same Sex marriage ban in Texas

This is the jerkass that is pushing for blocking ADA related lawsuits when it pertains to state buildings, in spite of being in a wheelchair, saying it costs too much money to the state to be ADA complaint -- nevermind he sued for 10M the owner of the house whose tree crippled him.

Clearly, the boundaries of unequal protection is priceless.

oh snap

Comments made me literally LOL.

"Proven yet again- the constitution is a mere ball of wax in the hands of the judiciary.-twist it, contort it, slap it silly and make it whatever they want to make of it.."

"You mean like the bible in the hands of preachers?"

Speaking of "oh snap".

ARE YOU PEOPLE JUST COMPLETE IMBECILES OR PRETENDING TO BE?

There should be a basic IQ test for those wanting to become politicians.

Anyone who wants to become a politician should be barred from politics.

So. Uh. Satire.

There is no Carol Foyler in the Arizona State Legislature. In fact, there is no one named Carol, nor anyone named Foyler in either the Senate or the House.

She's only identified as "A Tea Party Republican", not a member of government. A quick Google search for her yields a lot of quotes - apparently she likes to talk a lot.

I thought it was obvious it was SATIRE.

But economic reasons were probably one of the biggest reasons Jan Brewer indeed vetoed the bill. Consider Apple and NFL rumblings of relocating their big things (a manufacturing plant and the SUPERB Owl) if the bill were to pass. It would have been a big damage to Arizona's reputation and could be the first of several other big companies to decide to move a big bulk of their business outside state lines.

The economic loss would be huge and the fault would be squarely on the republicans.
