Gov. Brewer’s veto was about money and politics (Juan Williams Barf alert)

Don’t be fooled.

Gov. Jan Brewer’s decision late Wednesday to veto Arizona’s controversial S.B. 1062 bill is about money and politics, not an endorsement of equal rights for gay people.

Until opposition to the bill picked up steam by winning the backing of big business and the national Republican establishment the governor looked to be ready to support the social agenda of the religious right wing in her state by allowing the bill to become law.

The bill passed the state senate last week on a strict party line vote with 17 of the governor’s fellow Republicans defeating 13 Democrats who opposed the bill.

Looks like Brewer failed to engender the respect of the left wing nutjobs. How sad. We need to get this passed in a state not beholden to special interests.

The GAY MAFIA is not done with this issue until the Bible is banned in the USA and ministers agree to stop preaching the stuff about GAYS or they are imprisoned. THEN they will agree they have achieved their goals. This is much more than just Joe 6 pack agreeing they have the rights to marry, much more than that.
Brewer's action is of no significance in their "march for equality". Equality is not the end goal - it is to stomp out CHRISTIANITY and their beliefs in America.

Let me pose a question?
Suppose I’m own a Muslim Bakery, Catering Service etc. and I’m asked to provide my services for a Jewish wedding. Can I refuse to provide these services due to my religious beliefs? From what I gather this would NOT be discrimination, or would it?

It was $$ and it was politics, Brewer was in a tough spot.

I didn’t envy her.

Three of the republican senators changed their minds. Or had their minds changed for them.

If that bill passed all Arizona could do is sit back and watch the lawsuits coming in. We would be sued to bankruptcy.

May as well call Az lawsuits r us after the passage of it.

Of course, the whole matter is about stamping out Christianity, but the American people are incapable of discerning truth.

Williams stays pissed off because both of his grown sons are republicans.

He was also a Hillary Clinton supporter, never liked Obama and cut him down like a dog when he was running against his hero Clinton. Said over and over that Obama didn’t have the experience to be elected president. Then on the night of the election, after Obama had won, he was asked again how he felt about Obama, here were his words “I felt like crying when he was elected, finally after all these years a black man was elected president”. I felt like throwing up. A few months earlier he hated the man and said he didnt have enough experience to be elected president. He’s a fake and fraud and gets along just fine with the rest of the fakes and frauds employed by Faux News.

************************
Juan’s wife and kids are Republicans. His son, Raffy (nickname for Rafael?) has been on Hannity several times as a member of the live audience groups Sean does. He’s pretty Conservative in his views, so I guess Juan has a rough time at home.

I find myself screaming at the TV on occasion when Juan goes around the bend, like I also do to Beckel, Geraldo, Jehmu, Colmes, Holder and a half dozen other libs that appear on Fox News. ......That’s why Fox News beats the crap out of all other cable channels; they offer views from people of differing opinions, whereas the other channels are all mainlining on one view only.

...if you’re not specifically Christian, doing something that pisses off specifically homosexuals, then nobody gives a flying fig what you do...

I think maybe their goal is to kill them, not imprison then. Unless they wake us up out of a sound sleep, with guns drawn, I would suspect there are many who will not go quietly into the night. These dirt bags need to count the cost.
