YES! Even she knows the law is state-sanctioned discrimination.
NO! She’s supported extreme laws in the past so who knows.

The amusing thing about this bill, is that the republicans were so arrogant in their views that they forgot that business comes before EVERYTHING on the GOP agenda. Now they have egg on their faces and the governor is going to have to veto it. That said, I understand, as a former business owner, you can hang a sign that says "we reserve the right to not serve anybody", but that is like hanging a sign that says we reserve the right to shoot anybody. Sure you have the right to shoot someone who is robbing you or threatening your life, but if you shoot them because they are gay you are going to jail. Ironic how they wanted to use religion as the reasoning behind this discriminatory practice. Religion happens to be a federally protected status. in other words if you discriminate based on religion you are flat breaking the law on a federal level. There is so much about this idiotic bill that is just plain stupid. How are the business owners going to determine the sexual orientation of individuals? That right there has a gazillion lawsuits plastered all over it. Another ridiculous aspect the morons who drafted the bill didn't take into consideration, was that AZ is ranked number 5 in the country for haveing the highest gay population. Can't wait to hear Thom jump all over those idiot lawmakers who bit the hand that fed them.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
