Banning travel isn't going to solve anything. I know it's to show that they find the law unfair though they also seem to be kissing political correctness ass.

If they were smart they would only allow travel to Charlotte since they enacted the law that was overturned though I doubt they realize that.

This has to be the silliest thing regarding this topic I've seen. Talk about a "pile on". I'm not a McCory fan per se, but I do agree with him that this is TOTALLY blown out of proportion.

People are talking about this house bill like it's a repeal of the civil rights act - IT ISN'T!

This is a difficult one. One one hand I support the LGBT side of this argument.

On the other hand, yankees staying put in New York and Florida has a HUGE appeal.

Definitely a pile on looking for attention and votes. Somehow I don't think their ban is going to hurt much.
