Kind of like Amazon's entire site selection process.

Amazon decided to flex its muscle by doing a Hunger Games of site selection. With that comes everybody and their mother's opinion on what they would think of Amazon if they picked "City X."

NCís reputation on LGBT rights will have 0 effects on RDUís chances.

HB2 is long gone and so are itís consequences. Iím sure out of state news articles will write about it because itís attention grabbing, good headlines and a simplification over a more intricate process.

The group calling on Amazon to stay out of all these states is shooting the whole gay rights movement in the foot.

Surely getting like-minded people to move to swing states is the best thing you could do, but I get the feeling these people aren't very intelligent.

Pressuring the Charlotte mayor not to compromise on HB2 and congratulating the city while at the same time pressuring, shaming and bullying companies, events and companies to pull out of CLT because of how antigay NC is left me so annoyed...

State officials didn’t mind CLT being punished. They were gleeful until North Meck. Tipped the scales to Cooper.


I dislike the HRC these days. They’re out of touch, IMO, and they should be ashamed for the gay people they hurt by not supporting our gay inclusive communities in states that may not be as inclusive. Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Miami, Dallas, etc are we just all supposed to pack up from our beautiful cities and move to either West Hollywood or SoHo?
