    Electing Right-Wing Homophobs like Schwarzenegger is a kind of habit in California since Ronald Ragan was elected. Lucky for everyone, Schwarzenegger cannot be elected US President because he was not born in the USA.

  3. It’s not brain surgery. He just has to know how to spell his name 700 times. Same name, just keep writing, Arnie. We’ll tell you when to stop.

  4. “According to the San Fransisco Chronicle, the governor has around 700 bills on his desk that must be signed or vetoed by Sunday at midnight. They include measures on education, ammunition and insurance.

    However, he has issued a veiled threat to veto all unless lawmakers reach an agreement by the weekend on the state’s water system.”

    Doesn’t sound like homophobia. Rather, he’s saying he’ll veto the lot if he doesn’t get some joy on one particular issue.

    Our Governor is a come-around Republican. He won’t veto it… not this time, especially after Uncle Ted’s influence. Anyway, in California we have an “Assembly” not a “House” as the lower body of our legislature.

    Abi1975:

    Really? haha. No, no, that can’t be. Really???

  7. @Jean-Paul

    He was a German body builder looking to become a film star. You just know some porn exists.

  8. Abi – he’s of Austrian origin, not German.

    The trouble with Schwarzenegger (a bigoted Republican) is that he is not man enough or has any guts to sign LGBT-friendly bills into law!!!!! He is the one who is a little girl at not dealing with the issues!!!!

    That is so true too Abi1975 – I know of someone who also have shots of him naked as well!!!!!!!

    Also what about the pre-Prop 8 marriage recognition bill as well (I bet he will veto that as well).

    He is a man who just vetoes everything (typical Republican). If I was Govonor the only thing I will veto in my whole political life will be more taxes – that it it!!!!!!

    I’m sorry, but once again the Pink Paper is being slightly misleading and inflammatory. There’s no sign that – this time around- Schwarzenegger’s any more opposed to the Harvey Milk bill than he is to the other 699 bills that he’s also threatening not to sign. Gay Californians need water too, so forcing an agreement on the water supply may be entirely sensible.

    (And, yes, of course it’s bizarre that they hired their governor cos he’s a film actor.)

  11. I know this is a serious matter and I really do hope he signs it but I can’t help but laugh at the idea of the terminator deciding what happens, I just get these ideas of some cliche movies with a phrase like “I’ll be back… with a pen”.

    Cute!….and clever.

  13. Come on Arnie, you swing both ways (politically) you can’t be pro Gay one day and not the next! YOU need all the votes you can get the mess California is in so don’t upset the gays!
    PS: (by the way technically, all Austrians (called Germans right into the mid 19th Century) are of Germanic origin and so are the German “Germans”

    This bill is dead man. As dead as the entire, fetid, reeking homo movement. Harvey takes cock up his ass and he’s a hero? Right.

  15. Pardon me? Who let the homophobe in???!!!!
