we've all been scammed in paying sales tax and other taxes for a project lawmakers now want to turn a blind eye too so they can sue the pants off companies that manufacture defective explosive bolts or fuel lines.( in thier private law practices that is)

all the current legislators should find something to do after the next election as it's doubtful they will be re-elected in branson takes his business elsehwere.

Oh, they'll be re-elected. The culture of people that elects these people hasn't changed. We weren't scammed. We made decisions based on the information we had at hand. We had no idea we'd get down to the nut-cuttin' and our lawmakers would flip Branson the bird. I can just see a short, fat, mustachioed lawmaker up there. "I'll show Meester Branson just who ees who!" Its not protecting future lawsuits for their bretheren to file, its machismo. They were feeling like the head banty rooster till Branson walks in the room.

I thought it was Mississippi. But, cant argue with the truth can ya. I've lived in this racist state long enough to know it when I see it. One of the reasons I moved here. Low ethnic density. As a white guy in a brown state, I get the racistst treatment far too often, and ESPECIALLY in Santa Fe. So don't give me any racist crap, I ain't buyin it. Ive seen it too many times to have dreamed it up, so get the chip off your shoulder.

you're probably one of the exceedingly stupid people who have uttered words to the effect of,

I'm (fill in the name of you favorite non-white ethnicity here) I CAN'T be a racist!
