Indiana achieves a new low
You just knew it was coming in Indiana, with their recently elected 49% Governor Mike Pence, for them to join the rest of the Midwest states miss-governed by the GOP in exercising their option on promoting hatred and discrimination. Like Kansas' idiot Brownback who has bankrupt the state, or Michigan's fraud Kasich who robbed Detroit, or Wisconsin's Walker whose union-busting and corruption has reached new highs, you just knew something was up in Indiana.
When the "dumber-than-dog-shit" voters elected a former talk radio host to Congress where he distinguished himself by his mediocrity and then elevated him to the governorship, it was only a matter of time before he supported legislation(created with the help of ALEC and the fools in his party) that would embarrass the state and the country because that is what Republicans do, y'all. Now that they have passed their so-called religious freedom act which legalizes discrimination against gays, the coward Pence is trying to justify the law as harmless to gays and simply protecting everyone's constitutional rights on religious practice. Of course that is a lie.
Pence has done such a masterful job of pissing off the business and sports communities that his repugnant colleagues are offering to rewrite the law to protect gays. This is only coming about because the idiots did not care that they were legalizing discrimination in the first place and were catering to the hatred, homophobia, and racism which has always laid beneath the surface in a state which was home to the largest Ku Klux Klan membership outside the South and the racist John Birch Society supported by the Koch Brothers.
So, this entire episode in hate-governing by another mediocre-at-best politician is par for the course. I mean you don't really believe a Republican governor is going to govern for the benefit of all in his/her state do you?
