So let Arizona do what it wants to...

by Jim McKinney

Such an uproar over the bill in Arizona that would allow businesses to discriminate against LGBT people...whatever happened to plain ol' American capitalism?  Look...I'm not in favor of any kind of discrimination...but if the state of Arizona wants to let businesses say no to those whose lifestyle they don't agree with...LET IT...let capitalism run its course...those who want to discriminate will feel the wrath of consumers who do not agree with their decision...and this action will extend to not only businesses...but the state as well...I can see Arizona losing out on events and conventions over this...remember the flap over Martin Luther King's birthday? 

If those who disagree with this figure out that just saying no to those institutions that decide this plan is a good one...then free enterprise will run its course...and this is not to say that businesses can't make this their policy...LET THEM...they can be as selective as they want as to whom they sell to...and let capitalism be their guide.

By the way...a businesswoman in Arizona said that this concept is not being gay vs. religion...she's a liar...yes it is...and if Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signs the bill into law...it's still going to be gay vs. religion...round one....
