Their plan is coercion, see it our way or we’ll sue you out of existence.

Here’s an opportunity to stand up and be counted, a chance to fight back, a way to recover lost ground. Together we can work to get this gorilla off America’s back. House Bill HR 2679 IH
would take the money out of the law suits, the ACLU would lose interest..
