    and the largest Naval base in the world with the civilian shipyards to boot.  Then several Army installations, Air Force Marines at Quantico and NASA.

        at Ft. Pickett and Ft. AP Hill.  Sure, it won't affect the folks in uniform under DADT but there are sure as hell a lot of civilian federal employees at all those places we mentioned who fall under federal government discrimination laws as well as contractor corporations with federal labor laws and corporate discrimination policies.

        They are really playing with economic fire with this.

        And then, the educational institutions may lose federal funding by having to comply with these backwards state laws.  If you violate federal discrimination law you lose federal student aid and research grants.

        I think the power of the pocket book will make the new regime of the Commonwealth shape up or ship out.
