Nikki Haley already said she'd veto it I believe. She seems to have a bit more business sense than McCrory.

Absolutely. I was just hoping the yo-yo that said they were going to take a stand against PayPal for making good on their threat to pull out and do business with Square noticed Square was on the list that came out against the bill too.

BTW - I'm noticing the strawman argument about PayPal doing business with Cuba, Iran, et. al. is gaining traction in the media. Other than one having nothing to do with the other, the better question might be when did being compared to, or even being written in the same sentence with these countries as far as how we treat our fellow citizens become viable let alone acceptable? Talk about hating America...

Haley is conservative but not crazy unlike our governor. You know it is not that many miles from Rock Hill to Charlotte, so wonder if Haley is on the phone to PayPal?

Haley is also wisely positioning herself for national office. McCrory has no such realistic hope

Definitely. She doesn't have her ass on her shoulders.

Fortunately, no one takes Lee Bright seriously.

Hell, I bet she put their number on speed dial, just like she did with Volvo.

He seems to me like Rubio. A huge pushover. When has he ever taken a stand? He basically does whatever Art Pope tells him to do.
