At a news conference at the State Capitol Wednesday evening, Brewer said the bill “could result in unintended and negative consequences. … I sincerely believe that Senate Bill 1062 has the potential to create more problems than it purports to solve,” Brewer said. (MSN)
Move over, let me get on my soap-box for two minutes: For eons, I have been saying that every move is first and foremost a business decision. Then we deal with morals and integrity and all those fancy scrabble words. The very first question is: “How is it in my best business interest to make or not make this change?” Whether it be choosing to go to war, continuing or ending slavery, civil rights, shifting the voting laws, challenging health care, our beloved prison system, current education challenges… Pick anything. If you do not think that religion is about money, sit quietly in the pew for a while.
I do not care how wrong you think any issue is. You may hold the moral high-ground. I am simply telling you that standing and yelling in a crowded room will do nothing for your movement until you find that spigot! You must demonstrate…you must convince me that it is either in my best financial interest to make this change, or the cost to not making it will be substantial. Either this change will make me money, or not making it will cost me huge money. Then they find morality!
If you think that Jan Brewer had some moral epiphany, I have some swamp land in Florida to sell you! This is less about Arizona and their current issue and much much more about every social issue you confront.
