Support for employer sanctions was sarcastic (access required)

It was a bit of surprise to see that a has-been like me was mentioned in an article in the Arizona Capitol Times (‘I hate this bill and I vote aye', January 25, 2010). I guess there must be very little happening at the Legislature.

  1. This article is right-on. The Chamber of Commerce both local and nationally has abandoned Free Enterprise and Capitalism years ago.

    Today they are just another organization that ignors the Rule of Law and wants state and local government out of commercial and industrial business affairs altogether.

    The Chamber believes that holding a gun to a customers head and forcing a buy or die imperative is laisses-faire capitalism.

    The Chamber attempts to punish communities where punitive damages are aimed at businesses. Judges fear for their judicial existance, and therefore allow some businesses to violate both the U.S. Constitution and state statutes.

    The Chamber begs for subsidies, incentives, and leniency in court for it members.

    Many businesses who are responsible for the reduction of consumer spending are favored by threat of arganized effort to upset any challenger.
