The ignorance of human beings, myself included, never ceases to amaze.

I don't see anything wrong or offensive with that HB543 that you linked. It simply says that the HWY department must consider multiuse safety as part of their planning process. Actually, I would hope that is already being done.

As far as the Iowa bill... that is downright scary. But, I think it would be quickly thrown out by the courts if passed. Political affiliation should be none of the business of the employers. If I was a tenure professor in Iowa, I don't think I would provide the employer my political party affiliation.

What if they determine the colleges are 90% Democrat, and 10% Republican? Does that mean that they will only hire Republicans from now until the cows come home? Even if there are some well qualified Democrats?

Is that the way Yoda would write "IBTL"?

Looks like on-topic discussion of this matter has ended. Closed.
