29. This guy is really stupid

Apparently, it only just dawned on him that this is indeed something many people won't take kindly to, whether they be gay or not, and that perhaps in his zeal to kowtow to all the bigots and racists that elected him he failed to take into account that Indiana isn't an island, that they have to deal with the rest of the country, who may not want to deal with them anymore because of this horrible law. DUH.

He's only concerned about the potential loss of $$$$'s, doesn't give a shit about LGBT and RKP5637 Mar 2015 #1
