Mississippi recently passed a law allowing businesses to deny LGBT people on religious grounds, but some business owners aren’t having it. Hundreds of businesses throughout the state are displaying these stickers in their windows to demonstrate their commitment to equality. It’s part of “If You’re Buying, We’re Selling,” a campaign by Equality Mississippi and 30 local businesses to combat harmful effects of the religious freedom bill. Yes, yes, yes. Mississippians, look for this when you shop. (via The Advocate)

Apparently, a major factor in turning the electorate against many Republican incumbents was their vote to shut the government down last October.
Excerpt from article:
Former governor Charlie Crist has been one of the few Democrats running on Obamacare, and it is paying off. Crist has built a seven point lead over incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida.
A PPP poll of Florida found that Gov. Rick Scott’s refusal to expand Medicaid is hurting him with voters in the state. Democrat Charlie Crist has openly campaigned on the virtues of the ACA, and voters are responding positively. Crist leads Rick Scott 49%-42%.
Respondents were asked if they thought that Florida should have accepted the federal Obamacare funding to expand Medicaid and by a margin of 58%-33% they said that Scott should have taken the money. Those polled said that they were more likely to support Crist because he supports expanding Medicaid by a spread of 42%-33% with 24% saying that it made no difference to them. On the other hand, Scott’s refusal to expand Medicaid made 42% of those polled less likely to vote for him. Only 31% said Scott’s refusal of the ACA money made them more likely to vote for him.
Is it political if I tell you that if we burn coal, you’re going to warm the atmosphere? Or is that a statement of fact that you’ve made political? It’s a scientific statement. The fact that there are elements of society that have made it political, that’s a whole other thing.
