    language, pending in committee.  

    ALEC has written these bills for the conservative right.

    Ohio allegedly pulled their bill back today, but i can't find if it was back into committee until public outcry died down, or if the bill is done.

    This fight isn't over by any stretch of our imagination.  The ALEC language of these bills is so general (doesn't say anti-gay, can discriminate against anyone for your religious reasons) so it can pass review in Fed courts that have blocked bills that are overtly "anti-gay only".

    "Privatize to Profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.

    •  It's not Alec (0+ / 0-)

      It's Focus on the (Straight Heterosexual White) Family that's pushing it.

      I believe Georgia is looking to push one too.
