‘Bathroom bill’ To Cost North Carolina $3.76B

The Associated Press has determined that North Carolina’s law limiting LGBT protections will cost the state more than $3.76 billion in lost business over a dozen years.

That’s despite Republican assurances that the “bathroom bill” isn’t hurting the economy.

The tally includes state Commerce Department projections for several large companies that backed out of projects because of the law, as well as estimates for dozens of canceled sporting events, concerts and conventions.

Still, other measures show North Carolina has a healthy economy estimated at more than $500 billion a year. The federal government reported that North Carolina had one of the nation’s fastest-growing economies months after the law passed.

Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Forest has said news outlets are exaggerating economic harm done by the law.

      It would appear you’ve both been struck extremely hard.

      Obsessing about the gender and genitalia of others seems a rather odd fixation unless, of course, they are the object of your lust or affection.

      You were saying something about being freaks. Do continue.

    All this because some freak of nature can’t tell what gender it is. Tattoos are popular so maybe they should tattoo male or female on the back of their hands so when they go to push open the door to a restroom they will see the tattoo and then figure out what they are. Much better than standing in front of a urinal and finding out to late you can’t hit it or looking for a urinal and there are none.

      You seem to have spent quite a bit of brainpower imagining those rendezvous at the urinals around town, Zeke.
