Discrimination License

Thankfully, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer just vetoed the "religious freedom" bill that would've given people carte blanche to discriminate against gay people (and others, for that matter).  The most baffling thing is that there exists a state legislature that would pass this bill.  The bill in Arizona that was promoted by the innocuous-sounding "Center for Arizona Policy," would've allowed businesses to refuse service to anyone who offended their religious sensibilities.  (Gracious me, a homosexual eating steak on a Friday!)

Chevron says they were "injured" by this cartoon!

I'm hearing this morning that Chevron filed court documents saying they were "injured" by this cartoon I did in conjunction with Amazon Watch.  (I'll post more info as soon as I get the court docs or other documentation.)  Watch the cartoon for the more entertaining version, but the nutshell version is this:  Chevron was sued by villagers in Ecuador for leaving toxic waste all over the jungle.  Chevron lost the case and was hit with a multi-billion dollar judgment.  Chevron appealed and lost that, too.  Then, Chevron filed RICO charges against the villagers and the lead attorney on the case.  You know, accusing them of racketeering and being involved in a huge conspiracy to clean up the jungle extort money from Chevron.  No WONDER the Chevron lawyers make the big bucks!  Very creative guys.  
 
Oh, and for bonus points, guess who just hired the lead Chevron lawyer to help him out of a certain bridge-related jam?  That's right, this guy.
