Re: “IBM objects to Louisiana's 'religious freedom' bill

MOre information on IBM and LA from Salon

"IBM, which has a technology services delivery center in Baton Rouge, has already written to Jindal and implored him not to sign the a bill “that legally protects discrimination based on same-sex marriage status [and] creates a hostile environment for our current and prospective employees, and is antithetical to our company’s values.""

Diogenes, you can only find it under "I" in a dictionary.

Re: “Friday and video: PLUS: report from Pulaski school hearing in federal court

?ASA? should be proud that Arkansas comes out so good in "Sharkansas". See how the business image has improved with "Republican leadership". What is that old maxim-any advertising is good advertising?

Re: “Suggs gets good spin from Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

imaLRTeacher, easy question. If you show up then you obviously weren't teaching students at the time and are surplus. Suggs is a Harbor Freight quality "tool" and a cheap one at that. Someone needs to get him in a room and either get him straightened out or gone. I don't think Key is any better.

And tell me again, ADE Board, why the elected Board had to be removed immediately for this farce of a state take-over when the local Board at least had a plan and was actually doing something as compared to the state now, two months after the takeover! Take about another Republican farce of what they call "government" and to hell with the kids and parents involved.

Re: “Suggs gets good spin from Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

If the changes originated with Suggs, it means that in his two (?) years in Little Rock, he hasn't learned about where the power bases are and that is inexcusable. If they originated with Key, then he isn't as smart as he thinks he is and if this was proposed by the Walmart people, they need to go back to Bentonville and play in their right-wing fundamentalist racist backyard.

Re: “IBM objects to Louisiana's 'religious freedom' bill

I don't know whether IBM even has a facility in LA but they do have national sales meetings and one location that likes to see them is that large dome in NOLA. If one of the big ones pulls out, they could see a mass exodus by corporations.

Re: “IBM objects to Louisiana's 'religious freedom' bill

A chef in San Antonio is using his "religious freedom" to feed the homeless in city parks in violation of an anti-homeless law. He has been harassed by the city and faces a fine of $2000 for a previous arrest for the same "crime". Fortunately, the judge is throwing out the charges as fast as the police hand out tickets.

In New Jersey, a deli owner put up signs for "White Heritage Month" as if most months aren't already that. His business tanked and he declared bankruptcy this week. He tried that GoFundMe get money approach and so far has only $65, a third from someone openly racist.

Maybe the haters are started to lose a few, even with state laws openly in their favor by racist, bigoted lawmakers (yes, that's also you-Arkansas).
