Excellent Congressman Swalwell! The SF Giants should move their training facilities back to California too, Palm Springs would be a nice location. I've already sent a note to the a Giants suggesting that.

Here, here. Such a brave and bold step to protect his very vocal followers. Palm Springs for spring training, really? Is Fire island unavailable! or a field in the Castro. You know all those players keep slapping each other on the butt, so you know, they must play for your team, Eric. Or is this just another harassment and intimidation tactic from an increasingly whiny, vocal troup of squirrels?
You ask for tolerance. I barely tolerate you, only because of the law. Acceptance of perversion will never happen.

Swalwell is a little premature. He should wait for a decision then make his comment. I voted for Swalwell, and get irritated with his rookie statements.
The NFL had already indicated they would vacate if the decision was not consistent with their stated policy.

The bill was already vetoed. It is a moot point.

Palm Springs, CA is warmer than Tucson, AZ by 5°F.

Tucson, AZ is wetter than Palm Springs, CA by 6.8 in.

Your rant was interesting Right. The above statistic is why I suggested Palm Springs along with the interest in keeping the money that leaves the state for spring training here where it belongs. I never even considered the reasons you pointed out in your obvious hate filled, homophobic scolding. I'm glad you barely tolerate my straight, hetro preferences because of the law, because I could care less about what you do with squirrels, or other "butt slapping" activities you expressed your knowledge of, it makes no difference to me.
