Yet Another State Setting Themselves Up

The following comment made by a NYT's reader summed it all up for me. Basically, the mediocre and bigoted are flexing their muscle in certain states.

State government in action is rarely a pretty sight.

In my home state, the (cough) lawmakers there are mostly composed of the C students from my highschool. The A students often left to NYC, Boston and CA and never. came. back.

BTW, doesn't Ballinger look suspect? If this bill is signed into law, I wonder if he is going to be smiling when civil rights law suits are filed by the folks that were mistreated, due to the business owners that use this law to discriminate.

What a colossal waste of time!

Check Mr. Ballinger's home and work computers, honey, 'cause something is amiss with that one. There was the suggestion that the pizza shop owners were so willing to discuss their bigotry as a means to raise funds after they saw other like-minded businesses get a helping hand against the gays shutting down their business. I would like to see the books on this pizzeria, especially since they've shutdown in that on horse town of theirs where an expectation of protestors out front is almost non-existent. Not saying they aren't bigots, but a Go Fund Me is a Go Fund Me.
