I don't think this state has until November anymore. Default/Recession incoming if HB2 stands!! This would being catastrophic damage to the state left un-repealed.

Until the media really understands the depth of HB2, the governor is going to continue his "common sense" word track.
The governor's feet need to be held closer to the fire with more pointed questions. For example: What's is the "common sense" in omitting LGBT citizens from protections of human rights statewide? What's the "common sense" in preventing local communities from extending local human rights protections to the entire LGBT community? What's the "common sense" in preventing access to the state courts for all human rights grievances? What's the "common sense" of a bill in which its stated narrow purpose is the only part that is practically impossible to enforce?

I would agree with this as well. I would also add, what's the common sense in omitting protections for veterans as well.
